Sanlitun Youth Hostel

I would really reccommend this hostel. It has a bar\restaurant with an inside and outside area so lots of opportunity to meet fellow travellers and get ready for a big night out at the clubs which are just a 5 minute walk away. The room was a decent size with a good aircon and and the bed was comfortable. The staff were really helpful, friendly and accomodating.

Manena Hostel

The staff were really friendly and helpful and always more than happy to advise on where to go and sight see. They organised FREE pub crawls and walking tours which were both brilliant and highly reccommended. I did not appreciate being forced to leave at 11AM till 130PM every day.

Green Studio Hostel

Belgrade, Serbia

This is a party hostel. The staff are really friendly, helpful and accommodating. We arrived at 6AM and they let us sleep in the common room for a few hours. The hostel has a bar which makes for a good social vibe before going out for the night. The sound from the common room to the dorm room above it is loud so don't forget ear plugs!

X Hostel Bucharest

Bucharest, Romania

If you are a traveler looking to meet new people and have an all round good time, this is DEFINITELY the hostel for you. The staff are super friendly and accommodating, there is a great hostel bar, large common area, ping pong\beer pong table, drinking games, jacuzzi etc. The hostel is just a 5 minute walk from the Old Town. The only one (small) downside was no breakfast, but there is a huge supermarket 2 minutes away.

Kayun Hostel is fantastic. The staff bend over backwards to help you and are always smiling. The pook area is ultra relaxing. My room was cleaned every day which is not normal for a hostel. I highly reccommend this hostel.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bar was fun - smoking room even more fun ;-) The climb to our room on the fourth floor was a nightmare. Breakfast was a bit too basic.

This hostel had a private beach and a pool. The food at the restaurant was excellent and well priced. The room was not cosy and the tap leaked all over the bathroom floor.

Oak Hostel

Tokyo, Japan
74%

This is not a hostel, but a hotel. There are no hostel vibes where you meet lots of people and have a drink with new friends. It is a decent hotel. I stayed in a double room and it was tiny. I could barely fit my laptop on the desk. The beds were hard and the pillows were basically just bags with pellets in.

Copenhagen Downtown Hostel

Copenhagen, Denmark

There was a fantastic common area with ping pong, foosball, pool, and a bar where you could meet lots of like minded young travellers and get a very well priced beer. There was a ratio of 1 bathroom per 15 people which was a bit much. Good hostel I would definitely recommend.

Perminalen Hotel

Oslo, Norway
74%

This was a hotel, not a hostel, and I will review it as such. Given that Oslo is such an expensive city, the value for money is very good and. Breakfast was above average. They had a okay chill out room. The hotel did not offer any excursion bookings. The room was quite large and spacious and had a very nice shower. Not a vibey place like a hostel, but it's not a hostel so...

Istanbul Hostel

Istanbul hostel was very well located. We enjoyed the roof terrace where we watched the sunset every evening with a beer in one hand and a book in the other. The staff were friendly and happy to point places of interest on the map for us and give advice. The hostel organised washing, tours and airport transfers. Wifi was not available in our room.

Tallinn Backpackers

I seriously enjoyed and would recommend this hostel. Their common room and staff were the two highlights for me. The huge common room had a bar, foozball table, and a projector for movies and playstation. Everyone met in the common room every night and played drinking games and had a laugh, and then we all went out on a pub crawl. The staff are friendly, fun and join in the festivities. The hostel organises various activities including gun shooting, trips to the national park and walking tours.

Athens Backpackers

I stayed here alone but had no problems making new friends in the very cool sports bar (which is part of the hostel). I also missed no football games as they had them all on in the sports bad. I also enjoyed my free welcoming shot of oozo. The rooms are very modern, clean, and spacious, and you even get a balcony!! Athens Backpackers is an excellent hostel.

Alpenrider Chalet

Kitzbuhel, Austria

The staff at this hostel went the extra mile many times without us even asking. I was given a lift to the ski school on my first day and given ski tours up the mountain by the staff in their free time. They were really friendly and extremely helpful, and on top of that very sociable with everyone - they would join us for drinks in the bar every night! The vibe at this hostel is friendly, fun and young. I would definitely stay here again.

Budapest Bubble

This is definitely the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Nav and Olga (the staff) make you feel totally at home and go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and fun. Olga, who is a Budapest local, took us out every single night and showed us all the best pubs and clubs. She is very laid back and makes you feel right at home. I cannot recommend this hostel enough.
