This place has something you never expect in a chain hostel - the homy feeling. The staff has a good attitude to their job. Othe pros include spacious well-equiped kitchen and some activities organized by the hostel. However, still a lot to improve: wifi signal, add lockers etc. Anyway, I can definitely recommend this hostel.
Centrally located hostel with all the necessary facilities. However, they seem to accept bookings from large groups, so don't expect much socializing, partying or backpacker spirit here. Staff's friendly and nice, beds are cozy, breakfast is basic. In general, I'd recommend this place. Areas for improvement include pillows ('spanish' pillows leave much to be desired), wifi signal strength and lockers (very few and small).
Big hotel-like hostel with its pros and cons. Fantastic beds and good showers on one hand, but no hostel atmosphere on the other. WiFi is available only in bar/lounge, which closes down an midnight. Breakfast ends at 9am which is far too early. Location is good, lounge is comfy, bar is useless. Overall good for a quiet sleep, but not good enough for the real backpacker experience. However, I would recommend it anyway.
A good place to stay in Manchester. Perfect location, free basic breakfast and cleanliness are big pros. Cons include noisy environment outside (bring earplugs on weekends!), no wifi availability in rooms and in the terrace, lack of common space and small lockers located outside the rooms. Anyway, I had a nice stay and can recommend this place.
Brand new hostel in the center of Brest with supercozy beds. Friendly staff, clean bathroom. However, still a lot to be done: common room, maps, stable wifi signal in rooms etc. Anyway, you guys are on the right way. Recommended.
I was given a bed in a private house some 100 meters from the hostel. The good thing was there were only 3 beds despite I booked a 8-bed dorm. The backside was that there was no wifi (but it was possible to go to the hostel's patio and use it there) and totally no hostel atmosphere (people, common areas etc). Facilities are good, the owner is really nice and helpful. Good for 1 night, but not more than that.
Great place to socialize! The two terraces gather lots of people in search of partaners for goint out or just some beers. They are open 24/7, which makes the hostel a perfect melting pot. Facilities are good, each bed has a pesonal lamp and a power outlet. WiFi works throughout the whole place. Definitely recommended!
This hostel is a reflection of the whole of China: clean facilities, but holes in your linen; cozy café/bar, but overpriced; helpful staff, but no common area. However, generally I liked the place and I can definitely recommend it!
Fairly good hostel not far from major attractions and train/metro stations. The staff is really helpful, the hostel itself is really clean and secure. The cons include no wifi signal in the room and no activities organised by the hostel. Overall I can definitely recommend this place.
Didn't expect much from an Italian hostel, but this one turned out to be really awesome! Ideal proportion of privacy and fun, clean, cosy and friendly environment! The staff is amazing! Carry on being awesome! Cheers!
A hotel-like huge hostel. It's pretty clean and located right in the center of the city. The main drawback is that the room windows face the patio which is really noise starting from 8-9 am. Bring your earplugs! Bar at the rooftop terrace coses at 10pm o_O

This hostel is located really close to the lake and just 50 meters from the main street. It's really clean and secure, hot water is available (which is a rare thing in Guatemala). There was some mess with my booking, but finally I got a bed in a nice 3 bed room for the price of a bed in a bigger dorm. Unfortunately the kitchen wasn't available during the NYE time and there was no common space. However, this place is nice and I can recomment it.
Really good location, cozy beds and clean bathrooms. However, there´s completely no vibe! WiFi works from time to time. The staff tries to be really friendly, Has a typical hotel atmosphere, not a hostel one. The kitchen could have been more equipped and clean.
Great place to stay in Xela! It´s clean, has a bar/cafe, amazing breakfast in included. The staff is really nice, but it would be great if some of them improve their English! :) Don´t buy tours and transfers from them, they are way too overpriced! Get what you need in any tour agency in the street. Generally this place is highly recommended!
Great place to socialize! It's clean and not that far from the main street. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only drawback is a weird rule to turn the lights off and put all the stuff away from the patio at 22.00. That's way too early.
A hotel with dorm room(s) in the very center of Puebla. Location is unbeatable, staff´s helpful, but there´s completely no vibe as it is basically a hotel, not a hostel. My bed was cozy, there are lockers in the room. Showers and bathroom could be much cleaner though. Generally a good place to stay for not more than 1 night.
Fairly good place just several blocks from Zocalo. The staff is friendly and rather helpful. It´s a pity there were no lockers in my room. All the sounds of the common area can be easily herd from the room, so bring your earplugs if you want to get down to sleep before midnight, but it´s not a party place anyway. Generally recommended.
Pretty worn-out place, but it really has the vibe! $15 beer in the bar and the crowd make the hostel a party one. The staff is really helpful, but sort of relaxed though. Be ready to take a cab in order to get anywhere from here. Generally can definitely recommend it.
I stayed there for the second time. The hostel is close to several train stations, it's clean and secure, but there's no vibe. Generally good.
Located just 15 minutes from Manhattan by subway, this is a generally nice place to stay. Great common room in the basement, nice kitchen. However, there's no vibe, the staff tries to be nice, but most of them are neither pro-active, nor knowledgable. The hostel is clean and nice-looking, but if you need the real backpackers spirit, try something different.
I stayed just for 1 night there, so not much to say. Location is good, the bed was pretty comfy, the guy who checked me in at night wasn't friendly, perhaps 'cause I woke him up. There's a 24/7 supermarket next door which is very useful.
Fairly good hostel, but too big to feel the real beckpackers' spirit. The staff's helpful. Local eateries available nearby as well as a night shop withsome cheap beer, the hostel's bar is a bit pricey. Location is pretty average, but the neighbourhood is nice and calm.
Fairly good small hostel. Can't say I could feel the backpackers vibe, but the place has everything you really need. Don't expect hard partying here, they have some weird rules: no drinks in the common room, no hard liquor in the whole hostel.
Nice hostel with friendly staff. Located in the heart of the Old Town and rather close to the train station. The rooms are spacious, there's a large common room and a decent kitchen. No wi-fi in dorms. But I couldn't feel the real backpackers' spirit there.
Fairly good hostel with very nice staff. Located a bit far from the Old Town, but rather close to the train station. Great big lockers, the rooms are spacious and well decorated, but the beds are squeaky. No wi-fi signal in the room. No general common room = no special backpackers' vibe. However, was great to stay for one night.
Fantastic hostel! Located in the heart of the Old Town, this is a great place to enjoy Riga. It's very clean, the rooms are spacious, the beds are cozy, many showers and toilets. Two great common rooms to socialize, kitchen and a small bar make meeting people so easy! Amazingly friendly and helpfull staff who organize daily activities made me feel at home. Very important thing is that the rooms are isolated from the common areas and you will not be disturbed even if you go down to sleep early.
Nice small place close to the airport bus stop and metro stations. Clean, secure, staff is friendly. Daily activities at night. Can recommend it!

It was my second stay in The Garden and it was excellent again! Friendly, clean, spacious but cozy, great place to socialize. Don´t miss the great tours with Pancho Tours (I especially recommend the Tapas Tour!). Amazing place.
Big hotel-like hostel, but a good one. Great alternative site around! However, few cons: not enough plugs both in rooms and common area. No wi-fi in rooms. Very small room (a 5-bed dorm). Bar is a bit overpriced for a hostel. Still, it's a cool place and I can recommend it.
Not a hostel, but a room for rent. Good location. Nothing more. Would not stay again.
Yet another hotel-like commercialized big hostel. But this one has some really great things like free sauna and swimming pool, the roof-top terrace is also great. Don't expect much fun in low season here. Wireless doesn't always work in rooms. Staff is friendly. Anyway, I'd call this place a hotel with dorms, not a hostel.
Fairly good small family-run hostel. Location is perfect! Very clean and secure. Don't expect partying here. Great place to relax.
This is a really special place! Located in the heart of the city, it has easy access to whatever you need. Staff is great! Rooftop terrace and the garden make this place amaging. Spacious common areas, a bar - what else you need to socialize? Fantastic hostel in a fantastic city. By far the best I stayed in while in Spain! Muchos gracias!
Generally a good new hostel. Location is great, but guys, you should rewrite the directions in a proper way! What you offer is really hard to follow. Great rooms, cool kitchen and terrace, but... no vibe. Pub crawl is closed because of low season. Staff is freindly, but not pro-active. Internet signal is weak in the room. So lots of things to improve, but again, generally it's a good place and I have positive memories. Thanks guys!
Great place to relax! Small cozy hostel where you feel like at home. Great location, very quiet and clean. Fully equipped spacious kitchen. Don't expect to have fun here though. I really enjoyed Tarifa and Melting Pot! Cons: 2 showers and 2 WCs for the whole hostel.
Great place to socialize! Nice patio, good bar with XL cocktails, tasty food in the evening. The staff is friendly. Cons: noise from the two streets, creepy beds. But if you go to the pub crawl, you usually don't care! :)
Small cosy hostel in a friendly town! I stayed only for one night, but I really liked it. Can really recommend it! Thank you, Vladimir!
Really good hostel close to the city center. Helpful staff and cozy beds. The free pick-up service is very useful! The only con was that one night there was no water (but it was at 4am though).
Awsome place to stay in a beautiful town of Mostar. Clean, secure and cozy. The hostel is small and it makes you feel a part of a family. Miran and his family are very enthusiastic to help! Great experience! Perfect place to communicate with other people. Can definitely recommend!
The hostel has unbeatable location by the metro station and close to Kreschatik street. Very friendly and helpful staff makes your stay very pleasant! This is a small hostel which makes it easy to meet fellow travelers. Aircon and equipped kitchen are very useful. Can really recommend this hostel. Greets from Moscow!
This hostel really has the character!! I loved the wooden interior! Good location close to bars/clubs/metro, clean, nice staff, big kitchen. Can really recommend it!
Hostel Lao definitely has its character!! It's a small one, and it makes the place so cosy! Nice hostel to meet people or relax. Not a party place, but I definitely needed a place like this. Thanks and greets go to Romina and other staff!
Fairly good hostel. VERY comfortable beds (so rare in South America!), cheap drinks, a small patio. It's good you can bring in your own drinks. Kitchen is tiny, but it's better than nothing. Staff is friendly, though not pro-active. And I really loved the neighbourhood! If you brush up the service and get the hostel cleaner, you'll be one of the best, guys! Thank you!
Good location, very friendly staff. Good choice to explore the both sides of Iguazu!
Despite some cons like not so clean bathrooms and not 100% knoledgable staff, this place is highly recommended. Rooftop terrace is amazing! BBQ party was awsome. This is a truly backbackers' place. BTW, staff is really good, dont take the first sentance of a review seriously! ;)
If you're looking for a real backpackers' hostel, look for another place to stay. This one is just yet another big hotel with dorms. However, it's very clean and has all necessary services. Location is good (but not perfect). Staff is helpful, but sometimes reception is overcrowded and the staff just can't help everyone prompty. Security is good, but in my 8-bed dorm there were only 2 lockers! The place was packed with locals, but no problem with that. Generally this hostel is OK to stay.
Nice place to stay and to meet people. Very clean, staff is friendly and helpful. Good showers. Can really recommend it!
I've never stayed in a hostel better than this! Perfectly located in the heart of the Old Riga, superclean, has cozy beds and 2 lively common rooms, all the facilities you can ever imagine. It's a perfect place to meet people as well! What is most important, they have the best staff in the world of hostels!! Cheers! I'll be back! ;)
Good location, freindly staff, clean and cozy. Bar downstairs helps to meet people. The hostel is in my Top-3 out of more than 20 hostels I've stayed it! Thank you!
I return to Naughty Squirrel's again and again. That's all because the amazing staff and comfort of the hostel! It's a perfect place to meet people and - trust me - this is realy one of the best (if not the best) hostels out of couple of dozens I've visited in Europe! Thanks, guys! I hope one day I'll ring your doorbell again!
That's the one of really OUTSTANDING hostels I've ever visited. Interiors are like designer styled! Home-made dinners make you feel in good hands in this amazing city! Security is 100% proof, the staff is 101% helpful. Don't be sure you have the real party here, but you'll be welcomed greatly in fantastic facilities. Ensured by Fatima Carioca! ;)
Fairly good hostel, greatly located, clean and secure. However, VERY small showers and non very cozy beds.
Perfect place both to have fun & just simply enjoy beautiful Riga. Unbeatable location in the Old Town, very clean and secure, cozy beds and wonderful staff. I stayed for the second time and will come back again! Thanks!
The Naughty Squirrel definitely deserves 100 points!! Extremely clean, good number of showers. Cozy beds and big lockers, very secure. Location is perfect. But their main advantage is the staff! Thanks to Jarred, Robert, Karina, Solveiga, Ieva and other guys staying in a hostel becomes staying at good friends'! Besides that, the atmosphere is perfect for meeting fellow travellers. Hope to come back one day! Thanks a lot! P.S. I loved the ambiguous name of the hostel! ;)
I can definitely recommend HostelGate to fellow travellers. The location is superb! Cozy beds, room with a balcony, spacious kitchen & common room. Clean showers and toilets (however packed in peak hours in the morning :) ). Hostel's staff is friendly and helpful! Really good place to stay.
Sant Jordi Arago is perfect!! It's not so big so you feel at home every minute of your stay. The staff helps you enjoy Barcelona by all means! Thanks Rafa, Pablo, Alejandra and Linda, and see you all in a couple of days! :)
Very good hostel! Has unbeatable location and very friendly staff! Can recommend it to everybody going to beautiful Valencia!
After I made a booking, they phoned me and told there was a mistake/overbooking and they have no free beds for my days. They suggested that I come to their place, they return me the deposit and show directions to another hostel. I agreed, but finally my flight to Rome was cancelled and I didn't get there at all. So, overbooking is a bit disappointing, but on the other hand, they informed me in advance and offerd any assistance I needed.
Perfect hostel to stay in while exploring beautiful Barcelona! If you are going to party - it fits your needs 100%. If you prefer to go to sleep early and get up early - then 95%. Staff is brilliant! Duda and friends, greets from Russia and gracias por la camiseta! ;)
Perfect hostel! And the stuff make it even more perfect! Tariq, Tony, Volcano - you guys rock! extremely helpful and friendly. People feel really at home there. Will miss the place... Location's unbeatable, good place for partying also! Keep on!
Tiger Tim's is the best hostel I've ever stayed in! Perfect location, wonderful friendly staff nice common room & kitchen and so on. Will realy miss it!!
Value for money! Good location and friendly staff. Lovely place!
Not very good location, no fun, no wireless. On the other hand - friendly staff (greets to Eva!), clean and secure.
Fantastic place! Must see!! Much fun, lovely place, nice staff and so on! Close to the center and the train station. Really loved this place!
Good hostel to relax, not so much fun there. It's a pity I was woke up at 8 am by some electric saw or grass trimmer sound... Rather far from city center (you have to walk some 5-7 minutes to the tram station and have a 15 minutes trip by tram). The staff is friendly. Very hot in the room... Generally it's a good hostel, I don't have regrets about having visited it! Thanks Igor and other guys!
Best choice in Belgrade!! Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, great common room, close to the center and so on. Will remommend it to fellow travellers going to Belgrade! Thank you guys!
Very friendly staff and a useful bar downstairs, nice patio. Fre wifi. Location is the only disadvantage, but if you like walking it's ok! Thank you gays, will recommend your hostel to everyone!
