About 4km for the train station in a nondescript area where a woman would probably not feel secure alone at night. The place is clean, although it could use some renovation.

It's a very big hostel, for the younger crowd. I didn't like the location (Altona and Ottensen in the western part of Hamburg are much nicer), and, in such a big place, security is so-so since anyone can just walk in unnoticed. Otherwise, it's very clean and affordable.

One of the best hostels I stayed at. The only two minor issues: - no free luggage storage: Either 0,20E/hour or 2E/24 hours - basically no vegan options for breakfast -> www.ohsheglows.com/2012/01/03/top-15-vegan-breakfast-recipes-of-2011/

Thank you so much for your great review and ratings! We are happy hear you had a great time here. About the lockers, unfortunately we have to charge people to use them because we don't own them. And thank you for your breakfast suggestion, we will definitely take a look at it! Frank, Stayokay Vondelpark

Clean, safe party hostel on the south bank, close to London Bridge and the famous Borough Market. The rooms don't have AC so can be a bit hot in the summer. Great staff.

Hi, We're glad you enjoyed our bar! We do our best to make every guests stay as lively and fun as possible. It is sometimes a bit hot when London heats up more than usual, however, that's rare. Hopefully you'll be back in the future and you can party with us again! Many Thanks, St Christopher's Village team

The Westend Hostel is actually mainly a hotel, with two big rooms turned into dormitories, so it doesn't feel like a hostel. A pub/restaurant is available on the ground floor, and the hotel offers washing machines (load £2) and free Internet (wifi + PC).

It's actually a house with a bunch of rooms, a big, well-equiped kitchen, a common room with big screen TV, and a washing machine, so it definitely feels more like staying at someone's house than a hostel. I had a great stay. If you rely on public transportation, it's far enough from downtown Inverness that you should take the bus.

Located close to the train station and Glasgow's main shopping district. The hostel is more like a big, non-descript hotel although a pub is available on the ground floor.

The hostel is located next to Munich's main train station, where a lot of ho(s)tels are located. Good wifi + cheap drinks are available in the socializing area on the ground floor.

Not much to stay: It's an average hotel, located in the center of Bologna so it's a quick walk to cafés, restaurants, and stores. Nearby supermarkets: InCoop (Via Oberdan, 24 and Via Nazario Sauro, 4), and ConadCity (Oberdan, 37). Trattoria Trebbi (Via Solferino, 40) is a good place to eat tagliatelle al ragù (there's no such thing as "spaghetti bolognese), and Sorbetteria Castiglione (Via Castiglione, 44) is THE place to go for ice-cream.

Auberge Bagatelle, Avignon, France
6.0
10th Sep 2012

I chose to stay there because 1) it's the only hostel in Avignon and 2) I rod a bicycle so didn't mind that it's a bit outside the city. If you're on foot, you'll have to take a bus from the train station and then walk across the bridge. As others said, instead of a top-sheet, you are provided with a blanket, and I'm not sure it's cleaned after every person... Likewise, the 5€ breakfast is a rip-off. But the other hostel in Avignon is even further away and isn't rated better anyway, so...

View Property Reply

Bonjour, Breakfast formula is proposed at 4.90 euros includes a warm drink + 1 juice or fruit + cereals or croissant + 1 bread + 1 butter + 1 jam. It's a full continental breakfast, good quality / price and much cheaper than anywhere else in the city. As written on the site, bottom sheet is provided and included, top sheet is in extra, clean blanket is provided upon request. Station is 15 m walking distance (included the little part of the bridge, as we are located on the island, so in the middle of the bridge). If you take bus from the city station, it will take 5 minutes (ask stop Ile Piot just close to our camping / hostel site).

A very nice hostel on the right bank of the Meuse river, in the Outre-meuse area. The hostel is big, very clean and secure, and the staff is excellent. Rooms have lockers so you can store your stuff safely. The hostel is located in a semi-sleepy part of the city, so go to the left bank where the action is, around the St-Paul Cathedral. As this hostel is part of the Hostelling International network, you'll need to bring your membership card or purchase one when arriving at the hostel.

If you are looking for a big, family-type hostel, this is the place. It's quiet but clean and safe. It offers free breakfast. Rooms have lockers (bring your own, or buy one at the reception). It's located in a nice area (Jordaan, west of the train station), although a bit remote, so do like the Dutch, and ride a bicycle.

I agree with a review that I read before going and that is now several pages down the list: This place is OK, but I certainly wouldn't rate it at 94% like it now is. The reason is that pretty much all hostels are located in this area, which is nice and close to what to see in Istanbul, and it seems like pretty much all of them have a terrasse on the root, so Bahaus Hostel is no different. Besides, I found the rooms and the bathrooms OK, but they could use some work. And since the place doesn't have air-c
