Bola-Bola was great overall. Although it's a bit out of the centre, it's close to a train station. The owner is super nice and helpful. The feel of the place is really nice but the only problem is if you are Northern-European-sized, you will feel a bit like you're living in the Ewok village. Also, don't count on the Wi-Fi working ever. The hot water also didn't work in one of the bathrooms. All that being said, this place was still awesome and we have very fond memories. I would recommend it!
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice room, great location, great kitchen and common area. K's House Mt. Fuji has it all. If you're looking to go up Yoshida trail, you couldn't find a better location. 2/5 of us went up Gotemba - not an idea location but we made it work. The hostel also had abandoned hiking poles for my friends who didn't plan ahead. Very nice. K's House rules!
One of the best places we stayed in Japan. You get a really great traditional feel and the staff is unbelievable. I would definitely go back here if I went to Tokyo again. The only problem we had was with the Wi-Fi but why waste time on Wi-Fi when you can be having a warm bath downstairs? 100% recommend!!!
Overpriced on weekends and out of the way but with great beds and bathrooms, etc, it's a place to sleep on this overpriced and overrated lake, if you don't mind spending the extra cash. Breakfast is a 10 euro rip-off - better to go to one of several grocery stores between you and the town centre. I had a good stay but I'd look elsewhere next time.
We took the two bed room. It made a university dorm look like a palace. The beds were some of the worst I've slept on in a hostel. The shower button had to be held down constantly. The room was too cold. The breakfast was very limited. The girl at the desk didn't seem to know too much (and somehow she didn't even know Canada wasn't in Europe). The "common area" is not very good for meeting people. Great location but not a good "hostel". More like a bad student dorm. Would stay elsewhere.
Can't complain at all. Lockers for your stuff. Beds were comfortable. Showers were working good and clean. Just a couple minutes from the train station and maybe a 20 minute walk from the main pedestrian street. Breakfast cost a few euros extra but it was unlimited and good (German style breakfast), so it was worth it. I'd stay here next time I go to Heidelberg.
I stayed in the 15 bucks 5 person room and it was absolutely great. With the kitchen just outside the door and your own bathroom, there is little to complain about at this price. The main problem was they have huge problems with their Internet connection. The wifi signal is amazing but the Internet connection itself fails at random, sometimes seldomly and sometimes quite often. Also, there was an odd smell in the bathroom from the drain. Anyway, I will stay here again next time I go to Prague.
Great location and super friendly staff with those criminally low Eastern European prices but there was just one bathroom for our floor, split into one room for the toilet and one room for the sink + shower. So if someone is showering, you've got to go to another floor to wash your hands. The bathroom is also not so nice. Still, if you can suffer through the bathroom stuff, everything else is good. Although I didn't have a chance to do it, they even have cooking classes in the evenings.
Great location and friendly staff. The laundry is way too expensive, so avoid doing it here. Renting your sheets is absurd and is obviously a gimmick to make the price appear lower. But Switzerland is expensive, so you have to bite the bullet. Good lockers. Bathroom is about as clean as you can expect for a hostel.
Staff is very helpful and the location is awesome if you're making day trips from the train station or even if you're exploring Rome, as long as you don't care about a relatively short walk. The breakfast is decent. My only real complaint was that nobody hung out in the common area at all or, if they did, they weren't interested in talking. The hostel was very much treated like a hotel by pretty much everyone there, so the only way to meet people was in your own room.
This place is infested by bed bugs, which seems to be known by other travelers I've met in other cities. The staff is also very rushed and rude. There was ONE toilet/shower for the floor. The lockers take only absurdly thin locks and so are not useable. Did I mention BED BUGS EVERYWHERE, even on the terrible common room couch? If this place burned down (which I hope it does), it would improve. Don't stay here unless you have brain damage.
There were no lockers in my room and the door was pretty busted but busted in a way that it was very hard to get into the room, so maybe that made it more secure...? The staff were helpful and the location was good enough. The common area is a bit cramped but there's a decent bit of seating and there's a kitchen right there. Overall, it was a good stay.
No complaints. Great location, beds, and common area. Everyone has their own light, curtain, and outlet. I wondered if the breakfast would be good but it was great.
Nice beds, great location. Wifi works great in the common area. My only complaint would be the hot water was already gone by 9am, which really sucked.
The hostel had pretty much everything I needed, except that the wifi was terrible and unusable in most locations. There are a lot of computers to use but they don't work. Lots of toilets and showers, though. You should definitely take the "party hostel" thing seriously, though. This is a hostel for the people who are drinking across Europe. The nighttime quiet rule is not respected. If that's your thing, great. If not, you might have a small problem sleeping but it's okay.
The bathrooms are like in your own home. They're great. The beds too. Breakfast is the standard fare. Staff is friendly. You also pay so little money that you feel like you're committing a crime. Stay here.
It was good overall for the facilities, breakfast, etc. but it was a ghost town, apart from a couple teenagers and a mentally disturbed woman. There were cheaper budget hostels available and and since no one goes to this hostel, probably a better bet to go there. Still, it was a good place. Free laundry was great.
Pretty good hostel overall. The kitchen works as a common area and the breakfast is good quality bread. My only big complaint is the Internet connection often didn't function while I was there. Also, the lockers are so small than you can only store your valuables, not your whole backpack.
Your only choice in Nantes is a budget hotel but you can probably do better than this one. The Internet still doesn't work after a month since the last user's review, which makes me think it is intentional. Otherwise, you get what you'd expect from a budget hotel. I'd look elsewhere.
It's a budget hotel and since there are no hostels about, you don't have any option but to pay through the nose. Still, friendly staff and you get what you expect. Oh, the wi-fi forces you to sign up for an account and watch commercials before use.
Great overall but because of the construction, the hallway and the shower room were freezing. Also, the common area closing during the day is a bit annoying. Overall, I would recommend this hostel, though!
Two person room was good enough. Only one bathroom for the floor could be a problem but it wasn't (bring your own hand soap). The breakfast was average but the inner courtyard to eat in was great. Lots of space to sit down and meet people. The location is also awesome - close to nice areas and just a couple minutes from several subway stops. Security is no problem with a police precinct down the street. I'll stay here again next time I go to NYC.
Great location and friendly staff. Good breakfast. There are two main problems. The first is that no rooms are lockable and you don't get a key to the front door; they buzz anybody in who wants in. The second is that there is only one toilet for the entire hostel. When I read the reviews, I thought people meant one bathroom but it's literally one toilet. And that toilet doesn't even flush properly. There are also only two showers but that's not as big of a deal. Still, good hostel overall.
The hostel was overall good but be careful if you select the 3 bed room. We were put in a two bed room, with one big bed. On the second night, we got a second bed but only after asking on the first night. Don't count on much noise insulation from the outside. Also watch out for the child thieves at the tram stop! The hostel people won't warn you about them. The pillows suck like in every hostel but the mattresses were good.
Everything was great, except that the staff comes very late on weekends and isn't there so early on normal days. The beds were new and awesome but the pillows were awful. Bring your own pillow and you'll get the best value for your money of any hostel you'll stay at. Also, the bathroom was built for hobbits.

The blankets and pillows didn't have covers and some smelled like smoke. The place was generally very unclean. The shower head was broken and the bathroom was dirty. The apartment was very cold for the first few days, as the heat had been off. Don't expect much but if it was clean, it would be a good place. Don't expect it to be clean.

We stayed in one of the apartments, which was right beside the basilica. This is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in in my life, hands down, and probably the best value for money I will ever get in my life. If you are going to Budapest, stay here. The apartment was huge. The staff was amazing and helpful. I can't think of a single negative thought. The location was great. The recommendations of things to see were great. Stay here, seriously.

The window in our room was broken and wouldn't shut. The hot water was random but usually there in the showers. The showers smell one day like a sewer. The security cards required up to 20 tries to open the door. Other than that, it was okay.
Great - only bad parts are no breakfast (which sucks in expensive Switzerland) and the beds are very narrow and thus super uncomfortable. It is like sleeping in a coffin. That said, I'd stay here again because of how great everything else was.
We paid for a four person room and received a three person room with a cot. For 30 euro, we expected better. It also felt unsecure to have to give back our key every time we left the hostel. Other than that, the hostel was very clean and comfortable.

The door to my room was broken and didn't shut from the outside. The window was also broken such that it never closed.
The bathrooms were pretty trashy but that's to be expected, I guess. Other than that, I can't really complain.
