Love the free laundry system, great wifi. Very comfy mattress. Location is close to 4th St & its activities but I found it very sketchy walking right around the hostel at 9:30pm on a Saturday night.

This is a great hostel but what makes it so special are the staff. They're a fun group who are just as happy to help you with suggestions as with going out for a night of karaoke. Another nice perk are the 5€ homemade dinners (including vegetarian!).

Acceptable but nothing great. 10 bed dorm cramped & very stuffy overnight. Kitchen small & awkward to use if more than 1 or 2 people there. Staff were nothing special. Decent wifi. Great location, few minutes to walk to the bus station & nice/short walk to town center, supermarket, etc. common room with pool table, TV, books, & board games.

Woman at the front desk was super helpful, she even printed my boarding pass hours after I'd checked out. Central location but be aware it might be noisy outside if you're on a lower floor and trying to sleep. Really nice en suite bathroom. I recommend!

Friendly & helpful staff. Location is good--out of the old town which means it's quiet and just 10 mins to old town & 15-20 minutes to bus/train station. Gorgeous back yard, really nice to hang out there. It is the only hostel in town but it's very decent.

Very impressed! Staff were fantastic: helpful & friendly! Great location. Was upgraded to a 4 bed dorm for no charge. Room was spacious & comfy bed. Good kitchen and the free tea, hot chocolate, & coffee were appreciated in the chilly Irish rain! Free &/or social activities most (all?) nights. Great wifi though it only sometimes reached my bedroom. They printed my airline ticket for free. Would definitely stay here again!

Shelter City

Great location, central to the train station & the entire city. Staff was really friendly. It's a Christian hostel but no one pressured me or ever made me feel uncomfortable. Great wifi. I was in a big dorm and the room's door didn't have a lock but it is very secure to enter the hostel. Bathroom was cleaned twice a day, but a few of the guests seemed to spread a lot of water on the counters, otherwise it was very clean. I also stayed in a different hostel in the city and much preferred Shelter.

Adequate but not special. CONS: Apparently the kitchen and common room close at 11pm when reception closes. No one told me this so they tried to throw me out at 10:58 when I was having a snack after the movies. Hand soap containers were both empty so when I asked the receptionist for it to be refilled, he gave a half hearted look and and handed me an individual, mini bar of soap. PROS: Dorm room was spacious and I had my own locker. Walking distance to central

One of the absolute best hostels I've stayed in after 3 years of round-the-world travels. Beautifully clean, bright, and spacious in the dorm room & lobby. The British guys who own the place have created a genuinely friendly atmosphere where backpackers freely chat with each other and staff are happy to answer all questions and help you plan your time in Sevilla. I'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!

Staff seemed impatient, annoyed, or disinterested in helping me, so I only went to them for checking in & out. There was no record of me paying a key deposit upon check in, but the woman eventually refunded me. Not very many bathrooms and most had both a toilet & shower, so it was a problem if I had to pee and someone was taking a long shower. Minimal equipment in the kitchen for cooking. Party hostel. Good location & wifi. Not the worst hostel, but I would definitely try elsewhere first.

Staff were very friendly and helpful (they let me print and scan a bunch of pages for free). Dorm room was clean but bathrooms are dated and feel a bit tired and stale. I later stayed at a different Malaga hostel hostel (forgot the name) but I'd pick Feel Soho Malaga again any day.

Academy Hostel

Florence, Italy

Incredible location. Because I stayed for 9 nights, they gave me the dorm bed that was most private. Free breakfast was simple but nice (even fruit!). Free snacks &/or wine nightly. Wifi in the lounge was good. Not many bathrooms but I was out very early so not a big problem. Only hesitation: my friend joined me for a few nights and she had a few itchy bites she thought were fleas. No one else seemed to have this so maybe it was the hostel, maybe it wasn't...?

This is a GREAT hostel! The facilities are excellent: clean bathrooms, wifi, A/C, comfy beds, breakfast. But what makes Freedom Hostel special is the staff! They are so friendly and helpful! They sincerely want their guests to enjoy their time in Cairo & all of Egypt. We booked day trips to the Giza pyramids & to Alexandria through the hostel and both were fantastic. They let us shower well after check out so we could get on our overnight train feeling clean! I highly recommend staying here! :)

Thank you so much for your valuable comment!! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Osaka Hana Hostel. Sorry about the bathroom situation...if you were in one of the Ensuite Dormitory rooms, you could always use common shower and toilets in Common area (3F and 7F). Wished we could explained it to you.... so sorry. We hope to see you next time : )

Each dorm bed has a sheet hung up for some added privacy, which was nice. The staff were very friendly. The ony drawback was that smoke drifted into the common room as the smoking area was directly outside from it.

It's about 30-60 minutes outside of Dar, depending on traffic, but that also means its peaceful and quiet with plenty of restaurants around. Week nights they offer dinner for 5,000 Tsh/$3 which is delicious!

Wasn't impressed: lots of hair in the bathrooms which were kind of dingy anyway, loud music playing at reception for no reason, receptionist got distracted during my check in and forgot to return my passport so I was frantically looking for it before my international flight when the other receptionist knew it was still at the desk and didn't bother to tell me.

Hottest shower I've had in weeks! Beds are super cozy with heavy duty fleece sheets. Located right on the main square. Staff were very kind and helpful. Not much character, but that also goes for Uyuni itself! Standard South America breakfast of hard bread, butter & jam, and tea or coffee.

Rio Aplauso Hostel

This hostel is very adequate but nothing fantastic. The staff were very helpful and accomodating (I arrived at 6am and could go to my bed immediately, they helped me organized my onward bus ticket, and tried their hardest to speak English or find someone to translate when necessary). The room was clean and comfortable. There were enough showers and toilets but the bathrooms needed to be cleaned of hair a bit more often. Location is convenient enough but there isn´t much in the neighborhood.
