The hostel's ok; great staff at reception always there to help no matter what time of the day. Breakfast was pretty average, my pillow was terrible (as were others) and the room a little cramped. No lockers in room wasn't that great but thankfully I have no valuables apart from clothes that need washing. Good en suite though

dear guest we have decided to add lockers in the new dorm refurbished. In the meantime, you can use lockers in the lobby for valuables. we hope to welcome you for another stay with us ! The Manager

This hostel is the best ever! I'll recommend it to everyone as I had a brilliant stay. Perfect for a lonesome traveller like me to meet people and party, or chill after a long bus journey. Excellent (paid for) breakfast and the facilities in the rooms were the best I've ever seen. Great staff too, always friendly and there to help. Hopefully I'll see you guys again

This hostel is brilliant for a single traveller, it's so sociable and there's always someone up for a chat or party. The Wifi and computer access is really good, linen including a blanket and towel is included, and the 3 Euro pasta night is excellent value for money. Easy to access the sights and sounds and a variety of supermarkets and resturants near by. The only negative aspect was the cold shower, three nights and no hot water kinda sucked

The staff were always friendly and very helpful, although sometimes it was hard to find someone to man reception. The hostel was fine but there was no atmosphere what so ever which was terrible for a single traveller like me, they need to organise a few social nights. The dorms were always clean but chose a top bunk if you get the choice, I was on the bottom and it was confining even for a small person like me. The en suite was good even though there was no hot water

I only stayed the one night, checking in late and leaving early. This gave me plenty of time to see all Pisa has to offer! The hostel is really good, the guy on reception was very friendly and had a smile on his face which was appreciated. The room was a good size, and the en suite was in good condition. The communal areas are great too. It's a shame to have to hire linen though

Great hostel with brilliant staff. I loved my stay here. I had a nice big room with a clean en suite, it would be nice to have enough lockers for everyone in the room though. The organised events were always awesome to meet new people, and the staff really encouraged socialism which I loved as a single traveller

The hostel has a great social atmosphere as well as having a homely feel to it. It's an easy walk to/from town and the only negative point is there are no lockers so valuables are left at your own risk, but everyone seemed trustworthy when I stayed so it was all cool.

The free wifi's awesome although it makes people anti social; and the facilities definitely need cleaning regularly and thoroughly (I haven't seen a cleaner in a week). But in saying that Newton's a great little hostel with brilliant staff who are always helpful, it's really modern and comfortable. I would happily stay again

Hi, Thank you for your feedback. We have had cleaners to do room service and cleaning maintenance, sometimes the receptionist and a full time cleaner is hired recently. We cannot figure out why you couldn't recognize that as all other guests did. Please be fair to us. Thanks!

The hostel looks amazing and moder, it felt as if I were in a hotel more than a hostel. The staff were really useful and friendly which was great. However it\'s really noisy as there were multiple dorms coming off of ours, and we all shared one bathroom. Also the kitchen was pretty poorly organised.

You pay for what you get; the kitchen really needs updating and a cooker would be great. If you\'re travelling by yourself you don\'t really want to stay here as the only company I had were three 40+ men who were on laptops all the time. On the plus side the staff were useful in directions etc, and with only me in the hostel, my en suite was much appreciated after sharing bathrooms it the other hostels.

It\'s a great place to party, but if you don\'t like I didn\'t want to one night, you may be made to feel like youre in the wrong hostel as I was one night by a member of staff which I really didn\'t appreciate. The meals are ok, bit repetative and they do tend to run out of food regularly. It has a good location for beaches and shoping which are great, but I\'d sho around rather than take up the hostel\'s offers on excursions and the likes

I had a brilliant stay at India, it was by far one of my fav stays in the US. It\'s really chilled out and the staff there are so welcoming and fun. There\'s a great area out the back to chill out in with the other guests, and the locations quite good. I never felt unsafe as a lone female traveller

The hostel has an awesome location right by a lake which is perfect for chilling out by in the sun. The staff were ok, although they never really got involved with the guests, and I wouldn\'t want to stay here in a a busy period as there were only two showers in the ladies restroom, which is no where near enough considering the amount of beds they have. Other than that it was a fun place to stay. Plus the free cakes and breads were a great bonus

There are no staff living in the hostel which on the one hand can be quite good fun, but when travellers turn up there's no one there to check them in etc, making it hard to settle in. The facilities are good, if you're looking for fun and thrills I'd stay elsewhere as the train that you have to use to get to the hostel make a social life hard to obtain. On the plus side the manager of the hostel is awesome and more than happily showed us around and took us out all the time to bargain finds :)

The location really isn\'t that bad as a $7 bus ticket lasts for 24 hours, and you do tend to use it alot going between the strip and the Freeman Street. The staff weren\'t great at all, most of the time they were either bored or rude and the room wasn\'t inviting. I slept in a jumper every night due to the aircon. The other guests were what made the hostel bearable.
