Excellent place. Really nice setting, great courtyards, awesome rooms, could be the best value for money hostel we've come across in the world. Just don't expect the best service. Costs seem quite high for China for all the extra things like laundry, food, booking transport tickets etc. but it is a touristy area. Best bet is to definitely stay here but book transport stuff over the road at Yamen hostel and don't eat anywhere inside the old city walls, just outside you get great food cheap


Excellent service! Arrival drink, summary of attractions in Melaka and useful map with highlights of what to see and where to eat. Relaxed atmosphere with a quiet room and free tea/coffee and fresh cake! A very lovely and relaxing place to stay. Thanks!

Celica Art Hostel

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Loved the area and then all facilities, set up, cleanliness, rooms, all perfect. Staff were all perfect too...all but one staff member. The staff member that struggled to turn off the alarm about Monday 16th about 8pm. She really struggled to converse at all. Would not offer up a single point of info even when asked on multiple occasions, and when she did, it was often wrong. Seems like she's in the wrong job. If you can avoid her some how, I would highly recommend this hostel

Hostal El Cid

Valencia, Spain

Great place but the only negative was the lack of facilities. This downfall is not a parameter on the ratings however.

Hostel Zeus

Athens, Greece

The staff were more concerned about getting people into the bar than looking after patrons. Stayed in a double private unfortunately 1 meter from the bar. Bar closes at 1am & no effort is made by staff to calm the drunken aftermath of obnoxious american kids. no running water on the 1st day of our 2 night stay. no curtains so woken at 630 by the sun. zeus needs to decide if its a bar or hostel. We checked out at 3am due to the noise. had a flight at 8am so couldnt "party" as requested

We do try to make Zeus a fun environment and most guest appreciate this. But not at the expense of guests trying to sleep. The Bar closed at 1 am. this guest first complained about the nose in the bar, then complained about noise in room next door, this was dealt with promptly by staff, Then at 3 am said there was another complaint about noise,and then checked out. Though we try to keep noise to a minimum, this is a busy Hostel in the center of a busy capital city. We believe this guest has unreasonable expectations about noise levels in a hostel and should consider staying in a more expensive upscale hotel on there next visit

The Oasis Pansion

Antalya, Turkey

An average place to stay. nothing special but not bad either. acceptable

St. Nicholas Pension

Patara, Turkey

Great place. Very friendly staff. In the centre of Patara with a pleasant walk to the beach through the ruins.

Nur Pension

Selcuk, Turkey

Although the staff were accommodating and provided transfers to bus station and ephesus, we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the hostel (our en-suite bathroom stank like sewage as soon as we walked in and the whole time we were there. We used the communal bathroom.) The staff also ripped us off when we paid, we trusted them and paid what they said- should have checked the price ourselves. Also staff asked for a good review on HostelWorld- this kind of pressure on guests is unappreciated

Kelebek Pension

Ayvalik, Turkey

Fantastic place to stay. Would recommend highly and go back ourselves


Canakkale, Turkey

Stayed here 1 night and glad it wasnt any longer. Did a tour of Gallipoli, through Hassle Free Tours run from the hostel, which was very good. The hostel itself should not be advertised as a hostel, there are no facilities, you really just rent a room

Cheers Midtown

Istanbul, Turkey

Staff were excellent, extremely helpful and also flexible as we arrived one day late due to volcano ash cancelled flight. Location is perfect, outside main tourist hub but not hard to get to. Only negative was the kitchen smelled a bit.

Downtown Hostel Nis

Nis, Serbia

Great location, right on the river in the center of Nis. Friendly staff, with lots of advice to give. Breakfast provided! Very clean hostel.Definitely worth a stay when you visit Nis!

Star Hostel

Belgrade, Serbia

Great place to stay and would recommend it. The directions from the train station are not ideal though. You can stay on the number 2 tram almost to the door. Saves carrying those packs unnecessarily

I am sorry you missed to see that in directions. Our first recommendation is to take the tram no2 for 5stops. Its all there, thanks for a great review
