Excellent hostel offering nothing short of hotel standard to its visitors: comfort, security, efficiency,.... Breakfast, however, was not included. Will definitely come back on a next stay in The Hague!

We rated cleanliness as average because during our 4 night stay our room was never cleaned. We're not very fuzzy about the subject (we're not exactly the type to expect clean towels every morning) but it would have been nice if they dropped in at least once to take out the trash, for example. Other than that we fully recommend the place.

Mady's, Beirut, Lebanon

15th Feb 2015

While you couldn't dream of a better host than Mady there are however a few drawbacks to staying at this location. On the plus side: unbelievably friendly and cordial host who will always help you. Lots of privacy. Security: excellent. Spacious rooms that are very clean... However, the building doesn't have a generator which means in a country with daily power cuts that there is no electricity for 3 hours (no lights, elevator, internet,...) each day at a different time: very inconvenient!

Very small rooms with no cupboards, coat hangers or anything to put your stuff away. Smelly bathrooms and hallway. Self-catering kitchen could be better looked after to. Causeway cafe was nice though.

Abrahams Hostel, Dublin, Ireland

5th Oct 2012

Although all in all this isn't too bad a hostel: location is ideal, facilities are okay, relatively clean - we didn't quite feel at home. Staff weren't particularly helpful at times . Security of the luggage room is a shambles: too many guests have to use it (because check in time isn't until 2 PM) meaning anyone can just take whatever they want from your bags. We didn't like the chewing gum we found in our bed nor the extra money the hostel charged to phone the airport shuttle.

View Property Reply

we have a FREE luggage room which can be used by all guests by collecting a key at reception we also have lockers available for a small charge should you wish. we take a �1.00 deposit at reception to confirm the bus this is deducted from the charge of the bus.

Value for money: yes, but I'm afraid only because it's probably one of the cheapest hostels in the UK. Certainly the bathrooms could do with a little maintenance: bathroom floors are very dirty, there's mold on the walls, no decent shower mats (rather a dirty old towel) and some showers are simply not working. Dorm beds are all of different size and quality (which can be inconvenient when you end up with the worst bed of the room). A final suggestion: nightlights in the shared rooms!

Everything as can be expected of hotel standards so no real shortcommings. We did have a small problem with noise though. The basement floor caters a bar ( / club) which is also open to people who are not staying in the hotel which didn't always agree with a good night's sleep.

The Aquarium Hostel, Budapest, Hungary
8.3
8th Aug 2012

Situated in a very nice building. Location is very good as well. In theory it's not difficult to find the hostel, however, if you come by car using SAT NAV it's worth knowing in which district of Budapest Aquarium hostel is located as it doesn't say on the address description and there are several identical street names in the whole of Budapest. A few drawbacks we came about were the bathroom floors which weren’t very clean and there being no hot water in the shower.

View Property Reply

It happened some times that some guests -unknowingly- manipulate the hot water temperature from the tank that is in one of the bathrooms. We have worked out to avoid it in the future.

Great host. Good location. Very spacious airconditioned room. Building has lots of character. Basically everything was to satisfaction. (bathroom floor got a little dirty after one day's use but that's probably because you have to share it with so many different people).

A great stay. Location is ideal. Room was excellent. Host is very kind. Everything to satisfaction. One issue though, there's quite a lot of noise during the night since the hostel is located in the heart of the party district (but bring ear plugs and you're fine).

2nd Aug 2012

All in all this isn't too bad a hostel. In fact you get good value for money but the staff are constantly complaining about everything (other guests included which is quite uncomfortable). The place is littered with signs telling you what you can and cannot do and worst of all there is a lot of noise during the night (which we discovered the staff was responsible for as well). Finally, driving and parking around the hostel is an absolute nightmare. If you come by car, find lodgings elsewhere.

Overall okay, especially given the price per night is only £7 a night (that's probably the cheapest hostel in the UK). The bathrooms (the bathroomfloors in particular) could be cleaner but then again, bring your own slippers and you'll be fine.

Vita Nova, Amsterdam, Netherlands

6th Feb 2011

Vita Nova is simply a delightful place to stay. Staff, Cleanliness, breakfast service, surroundings,... all is excellent. We'd recommend this place to anyone looking for cozy, quiet and carefree weekend in Amsterdam. As the hostel is also a boat, there are a few minor drawbacks to your usual stay: the rooms are extremely small which perhaps makes this hostel less suitable for long term travelers with loads of luggage. Also, the water temperature in the showers is very difficult to adjust.

With regard to cleanliness we can only speak for ourselves when we say we never suffered the bedbug problems prior guests complained about. Though, the common places (the shared bathroom facilities, for instance) are quite dirty from time to time. The staff were very helpfull yet, breakfast service was always late (which did bother us especially when we wanted to go to places like the Blue Mosque as early as possible) We were quite satisfied, although noise is defintely the biggest issue here.

Hi Linde I am sorry to hear that you experienced high noise levels during your stay with us.. We do always try to accomodate our customers and warn of noise levels from our onsite Bar and Nightclub and even go as far as to offer free earplugs for customers for a better nights sleep.. Unfortunately I feel you may have only read half our Company slogan.. Party Hard........Sleep Easy is what the advert says.. Best Wishes and we are always happy to move a customer to a room on a higher floor for a better nights sleep.. Kind Regards Sam Mellors Dep Manager St Christopher's Brighton
