It's a good, modern hostel. The owners and staff are very helpful and can give you good advise about the city.
My biggest complaint about this hostel are the owner and the staff. The owner (I think) tried to sell me on an overly expensive bus ride to Da Nang, whereas I just wanted to take the public bus. After she had accepted that I wouldn't take her bus she gave me faulty directions to the bus station, waving me of with a cynical 'good luck'. Cleaning staff were also unfriendly. They were staring at me and I felt like they were chasing me out of the hostel half an hour before check out time.
In many ways this is a good hostel. However, Wi-Fi was horrible, the style of the hostel is tacky (designed like a generic 'tropical' bar), and the guests are on the trashy side of things. Read: people will drunkenly get it on in the dormitories. :(
Great guesthouse. My only complaint is that it takes a while for the water to heat after you turn on the boiler, and that the volume of hot water you get out of it is limited. So basically you can only take short showers. They're not so short that it's a serious problem, but they're a little shorter than I prefer.
Amazing hostel. The owner and staff know everyone by name and really care about their guests.
Awesome hostel. I have zero complaints and was very satisfied with the location, staff, and facilities.
I had a good stay at this hostel. The location is pretty good and people are very nice. My only complaint is that there was mold in the bathrooms, which among other things caused an unpleasant smell. Other than that the facilities were clean though! I'd definitely stay here again.
CabanaCopa is a great hostel with an unbeatable atmosphere. Their breakfast is also pretty nice. I guess the facilities could be a bit cleaner some of the time though. Also, it would be great if they offered filtered water as tap water in Rio is pretty darn awful. I'd definitely stay here again!

Was very happy with my stay at the hostel. The owners are very hospitable and everything was very clean (would have appreciated a little more privacy in the bathroom I guess—but it comes with the camping theme). The location is also great and it's easy to strike up a conversation with fellow travelers at this hostel. Would definitely stay here again!
It's a good budget hostel. My only complaints are that the Internet is reaaaally slow at night and that the place is a bit too cold (went in February). Was pleased by the heat of the showers though. The location is boring but the subway is close by.
This hostel is located above a nice bar with nice staff. The room was basic and the bathrooms were a let-down. On arrival the toilet room floor was wet (there was a soaked towel). The shower room was dirty and smelled. I showered in the morning right after the cleaning lady gave the shower room a quick sweep but still didn't like it much—particularly, the mat in the shower room looked unhygienic. Also concerning was the condensation on the windows and black spots in the corners of the ceiling.
Overall the hostel was nice. Unlike what is advertised there was no WiFi in our room, however. Inside our room there was a note saying that there was WiFi in most rooms, but I actually think there was no WiFi on our entire floor. Another strange lie is that the description says breakfast is served until noon whereas it is only available until 11am. Also, there was an anti-Ryanair rant related to new taxes hanging on the kitchen wall. I thought this was in bad taste. Minor complaints, though.
We really liked staying here. The building has a horrible reputation but we weren't bothered by it at all. True, you have to wait a long time for the elevator but queueing is very orderly. Also true. There's brown people all over. Some people seem to have a problem with that. They should get out more. We really think staying here added to the whole experience! Staff at this hostel were really nice! Bathroom = toilet + showerhead + faucet and is bathroom stall sized. Oh, try Taj Mahal resto!

The rooms aren't much to brag about but they are reasonably clean. Staff are friendly and accomodating. Internet is broken a lot though. The DHCP server in their router is very crappy so it helps to set up an IP address manually (if you know how). But it's otherwise slow also. Moreover, it isn't accessible from all rooms. The location of the hostel is really nice! Would stay here again despite my complaints.
The place was okay but a bit boring. Like other YH International hostels it's difficult to meet people here and you get the feeling the place was decorated with large groups of 16 year olds in mind (witness the rarely used airhockey table). The park this hostel is located in struck me as way too artificial at first (I'm European) but it's actually really nice.
I was surprised this hostel only exists since a few months as the place runs really smoothly and very well equiped (they even have hipster bikes for guests!). The place is really nicely decorated and staff are super nice! Finally, it's really to meet and chat to people at this hostel. The location isn't great unless you need to go to the university but it's only a 10 minite walk from the SY metro stop. And you can get a motorbike taxi to take you there if you're feeling lazy (it's very cheap).
The hostel is located at a convenient location in what looks more like a house than a hostel, which actually adds to its charm. Staff is simply amazing. They are really nice people and make excellent breakfast. :). It seems that they expect you to leave your room between 11-13h because that's when the cleaning lady comes by; I was a bit confused by that at first. Maybe the only downside is that the bathroom easily floods when someone takes a shower and isn't careful,(oh well). Would recommend!
The hostel offered a good place to sleep and was at a convenient location. There are some downsides though. For instance, Internet was only available via a shared netbook (not WiFi) and people smoked inside the hostel. Also the guy running the place was there 24/7, watching TV, which was not conductive to a fun atmosphere (though I wouldn't fault him personally). As you might have read elsewhere this hostel overbooks and so it might happen that they relocate you to another place. But it's cheap!
We were at Zeppelin's for two weeks and we really enjoyed it. It's at a great location and the staff is brilliant! They actually make pancakes one day per week and one of the nights we were even treated to a superb private concert by a staff member's jazz band. :-) Downsides. Noise from the street (esp. if in summer you want the window open at night). You continuously need to press a button to get water in the shower. Breakfast = coffee, toast + butter and jam or nutella, and cornflakes + milk.
The hostel is a 40 minute walk from the city center and REALLY difficult to find so make sure you print a detailed map or take a taxi (~6 euros from the bus station). Facilities are primitive (you have to switch on/off the water boiler before and after showering) but clean. The atmosphere in this hostel is good though, perhaps because it's kind of in a remote location and people are too lazy to head for town and so they just sit around and chat. :)
This was one of the best hostels I ever stayed in. The staff are just very helpful, the place is really clean, breakfast is good (the bread is delicious), and the bathroom was always really clean. Furthermore, the Internet was fast and reliable, and a spacious locker and a towel were included in the price, which is nice. I would definitely return here!
This hostel is on a road that is just a 5-10 minute walk removed from the main shopping street and the city center. I was surprised that we had to take showers in what was really a bathtub but the place was always clean so I'm not complaining. The staff were really, really awesome and I would definitely return!
I took the 'day bus' when I noticed that it was still available in the evening. Problem was that it had a different route at night and so I took me the other side of the city. Arriving at the hostel I tried to book the shuttle bus but they wouldn't accept a credit card for this service. As there was no ATM nearby I had to take public transportation. Unfortunately my early bus never showed up. I ended up walking to the city center myself. Good thing I had a map and an hour to spare!
The instructions on how to get there included a bus that didn't exist. Finding the building was difficult too as house numbers are often obscured in Milan. The room and bathroom were generally fine but it's unfortunate there is only one shower. Breakfast was horrible. Lastly, it's very unfortunate that I couldn't leave my bags at the hostel on the day I checked out. The owner said he would be away and that B&B's don't offer that service. The lockers at the train station are very expensive.
I won't surprise anyone when I say this is a hotel and not a hostel. From what I can tell it's reasonably priced, though not necessarily cheaper than other hotels. The location is kind of crappy, being next to the airport (the wrong side of it nonetheless!). There's a bus stop nearby, which will take you to the city center, though service is crappy in the weekend. This is an okay hotel but you probably want to stay some place closer to the city center unless you end up booking very late, like me.
I loved this hostel for many reasons: It's very cheap, staff is very helpful and friendly, breakfast is good enough (and as much as you can eat), there are big safes in the rooms (bring your lock?), there's free WiFi in most of the building, and I'm even fairly sure they don't charge for using the iron or a towel. The one downside is the location, which is a bit of a walk from the city centerâbut I think the pluses more than make up for it. I would definitely return.
This hostel is fine. Staff isn't particularly friendly but they aren't rude either. When I went to retrieve something from the luggage room they just gave me the key, which is unfortunate but common practice at hostels. The bathroom was small and the toilet wasn't fixed too well to the floor (!). Breakfast was okay. One thing I adored about this hostel was a beautiful balcony that you could sit at with your laptop. There's WiFi in the rooms. This place is sort of nice but not excellent.
The facilities in this hostel are nothing to write home about, but everything is really clean all of the time. Also, the location is awesome and the staff are really friendly and helpful (and they don't try to rip you off at all). Don't forget to bring a padlock for the lockers though.
This hostel is confusingly named 'MEININGER Hotel Hamburg City Center' in my opinion. The neighborhood it is in is rather depressing (there seems to be a lot of poverty in Hamburg) and quite far from the more (or less) beautiful city center. Service and cleanliness were excellent though.
