When I checked out, I asked a bald staff member how to go to the airport (BART is out of service), and he said he was on "lunch break and could not help me" A negtive rating from me for this hostel.

Qi, We are so very sorry for any negative experience you may have had with one of our front desk agents. It's unfortunate you felt you didn't receive the customer service and care that we strive to provide to every guest that walk through our doors. We hope you'll let us provide that care and service for you the next time you're in San Francisco.

Very small common area. So many many rules. I like the black girl in the reception, very nice. And I don't like the guy called Mark.


Duo Housing Los Angeles

Quite a cheap hostel, right in Koreantown, kind of a sage neighbourhood, about 20 minutes walk to the train station and shopping centre. No key needed in the hostel, kind of weried management. Both my friend and I found the bed was occupied by others when I am back to the hostel. Most people come here for one night, beware of the strange people you might meet. Credit card has been charged 3 days before check in, no more payment is needed when actually arrived in the hostel.

Japanese style bedroom without beds, also less privacy. But the girl receptionist was really nice and almost told me everything I need when I checked in. Only five minutes walk to train/underground station. 7/11 is just one block away.

Very nice hostel in a traditional Japanese house. Ann - the owner is quite nice, so are the other staff.

Generally okay, very close to Khao San. But the room is too big and there are more chances to share the room with some idiots who came back late and talked like in their own room.


Banyan View Lodge

quite a nice hostel, each room has small fridge and aircon, nice to stay. Very close to CBD, about 10 minutes to Coles and banks. many bars next to it, also close to the waterfront. Just, the lounge is not so good, and there is no aircon in it, so most of the time I stay in my own room.

There is nothing like a delicious yoghurt to start the day =) We assume you mean the bathroom is large rather than a giant sized toilet. We hope that's what you meant anyways ;), We really enjoyed you company while you were here please return again sometime =) Safe travels , the hatters team

A Venice Fish

Venice, Italy
91%

At first I didn't like this hostel when I checked in, as the owner announced the rules like a camp. Then when I talked to him, he was quite funny and kind. Through conversation I knew the reason why the hostel was quite "secret" - quite considerate for the guests. Nice location - 2 minutes to a big supermarket, 10 meters from crowds but very quite. Very safe - staff will check every time I rang the bell. But be patient for toilets - very nice toilet though.

This is a nice hostel with good location near the train station and a supermarket, staff is nice (the check in gentleman, not the other ladies), and it doesn't have any strange rules like a minimum x nights. Its a good choice in Florence.

Room is good, all comfortable single beds in the dorm. Just there is only one (maybe 2) toilet, so be prepared for the long queue.

Hi Qi Wang, first of all thank you for your good review. We reply to your comment because we just would like to inform our guests that in our hostel are present, not one, but two bathroooms. For this reason guests have not to be prepared for long queue as you have incorrectly supposed. Hostel Pisa Tower's staff

We are located 07 blocks from the metro Station Vila Madalena, that can take you to the main places in the city in a very safe way; One street up from the hostel you can take a bus straight to downtown and to the main shopping malls of the City; And it is possible to walk to the nearest post office, 10 minutes walk. 3 Blocks from the hostel has a high street called Cardeal Arco Verde there are buses to almost everywhere in the city. You should had informed you better with our reception about transportation to the places you where intended to go
