Big Apple Hostel & Hotel

Istanbul, Turkey
89%

The location is perfect and the staff couldn't do enough for us! Our room was noisy on the first night due to some very loud Austrians on the roof terrace...but after we spoke to the lovely Enver, he provided us with a quieter, bigger room - in which we slept soundly! The hostel couldn't be better positioned - and is a short walk to excellent restaurants, bars etc - we couldn't believe how close we were to the Blue Mosque. (and didn't even mind being woken up by the call to prayer!) Recommended

This hostel is amazing! Having stayed in the Naples counterpart we expected this to be a huge backpacker hostel, but this is much smaller and very new. The building is easy to find, just by the American Embassy, so heavily guarded! Just a short walk from Termini but out of the hustle bustle. We had a private en suite room and it was simply beautiful. I wouldn't mind moving in! The staff were really helpful and breakfast was included. Highly recommended!!

La Controra is a huge hostel just outside of the historic centre in Naples. The place was easy to find with their excellent directions (and video!) - the staff were so helpful and recommended an amazing, reasonably priced, family restaurant just around the corner with incredible views of Vesuvius from the terrace. The hostel itself is clean, the rooms could do with a lick of paint, but this fits in with the rest of Naples! Breakfast was also included. Would definitely stay here again!

Rome, Italy

Excellent location. so close to Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. Monica is a real expert on Rome & showed us several good restaurants and sights to see over our flying visit. The room was clean & cosy with many homely touches -including an espresso machine! We shared a bathroom but didn't see the other residents so it felt like our own apartment. Highly recommended! Thank you Monica :)

Riad Fantasia

Marrakech, Morocco
100%

Riad Fantasia is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. We were picked up from the airport by Kudos (sp?) who works at the Riad- he was so friendly and we all instantly warmed to him. On arriving at the Riad, we walked through the tiny streets of Marrakech and through a small door, once the door opened the Riad takes your breath away. such a beautiful building and a haven away from the streets outside. The roof terrace was an added bonus. We absolutely loved our stay here. thank you :)
