This hostel is good - you feel very safe and it has good facilities: a bar, common area, kitchen, breakfast (not free) and wifi (although the wifi doesnt work too well in your room, it is fine in the lobby). The dorm rooms are spacious and it is in a great location.

Seven Heaven

Milan, Italy

This hostel/pension or whatever it is called is very small - only 7 rooms - so it's good for couples or for if you just want a quiet base to explore the city from. Wifi here is good and the bathrooms were always clean! Breakfast is really nice here. Be aware that you have to pay the city tax per person per night on top of the price so it is a little bit expensive, but that may just be what is to be expected of milan. we enjoyed our stay here

Hotel Original

Turin, Italy

Nice budget hotel. We had a bed, bathroom and balcony. It was clean and the wifi works well. Not much around this area but the tram takes you to the centre easily enough. You do have to pay the city tax per person per night on top of the price though so be aware of that!

Lulu Rooms

Cinque Terre, Italy

Great location! The room we had was quite old, but i think that is to be expected in the cinque terre! It did the trick and visiting this area is definitely worth staying in accommodation that is not amazing. unfortunately no wifi!

Pension Larrea

San Sebastian, Spain

there is no wifi here unfortunately, and it is right next to the train station - BUT that is to be expected in such a tiny town. it was clean and roomy and in a great location! we would stay here again

Yes! Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

A very well run hostel - would recommend to all types of travellers. there was an unpleasant odour though that was a little off putting. wifi in rooms would have been good but otherwise, you feel safe, its clean, facilities are good and staff are friendly - cant complain! chain hostels like this one are always a safe bet!

Old Town Lagos Hostel

Lagos, Portugal

Would stay here again! great location - very fun - and very good value! wifi works well in the rooms too!


best hostel we have stayed in yet! amazing facilities - friendly and helpful staff! many many activities on offer - would recommend to any sorts of travellers- singles or groups! would definitely stay again

Patio 19

Malaga, Spain

to be recommended on cleanliness and location. pretty quiet when we stayed here but the clubs are in close proximity. wifi would have been good in rooms - otherwise, no complaints

La Casa de Victor

Granada, Spain

A great place to stay if you are a pair looking for some time to yourselves. Can walk to everything from here. We loved having tea and coffee at our disposal and the wifi is super fast!!!

Rome Accommodation

Rome, Italy

This was the best hostel we have stayed at yet- the staff were very sweet and looked after us well! They carried our bags and brought us breakfast in bed in the mornings! The hostel is very clean and the air conditioning was amazing! the area is a little bit sketchy as right near main train station so keep your wits about you, but we never felt unsafe in the hostel- location also meant that you can easily get metro around to the main tourist attractions easily! Would definitely stay there again!

Youth Hostel Oia

Santorini, Greece

no key to the rooms, they do not lock. no lockers provided big enough to put your backpack or suitcase (although small safety deposit boxes are available). Expect to be put into a room that you did not book, as they are allowed to do this under their terms and conditions and will tell you so- ie, 20 bedder instead of 12, mixed instead all female. staff are rude. Oia is a beautiful town, shame that this is the only backpacker affordable accommodation at this end of the island.


Ios, Greece

stayed in a 3 bed private with ensuite. would definitely stay at francesco's again - location amazing and our room was spacious with a balcony. cleaners came each day and cleaned our bathroom. staff friendly and helpful, although a little slow given the huge amount people going through the hostel everyday. brekky not included was a bit of a bummer as francesco's is the most expensive hostel we've stayed in - and a little disappointed that wifi is limited to the courtyard- not available in rooms.

Hotel Gulec

Bodrum, Turkey

Didnt stay that long- staff not the most helpful we have come across- paid for a triple room, was really a double with a pull out bed. sweet breakfast, they put it on early for us as we had an early morning ferry. overall, enjoyable and would stay there again

Brekky was amazing here - you get to order what you want! great location to go and see the valleys, hot air ballooning and restaurants. staff super friendly and helpful! only down side was that you didnt get lockers for your bags but put them under you beds instead, and some of the beds were a little faulty in this respect! would definitely stay here again!

Bada Bing Hostel Istanbul

Istanbul, Turkey

Very cool rooftop bar- not a large variety of drinks though. Good lock up storage beneath bunks - but they only gave us 3 girls 1 key to the room! Bit of a trek to the blue mosque but otherwise most sites are just over the bridge - 20 mins walk approx. showers were pretty shocking! BEWARE: to do not book air balloons, bus transfers or overnight buses through the travel agents attached/affiliated to the hostel unless you want to overpay A LOT. but otherwise a fairly clean and secure hostel

Thank you for staying at the Bing. You get a key for your key deposit. Naturally you get 1 key when you refuse to deposit for more than one key! We do NOT overcharge for our services. We charge what's right for the quality of the services. There will always be cheaper options out there but it doesn't mean that all are the same! We have been doing this for years and you are the first to say that we overcharge!
