Keep in mind: It's a camping space, a bit far away from the centre! Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay, we booked a 2 bed house & got a 4 bed one, which was great! The heating costs extra, but it's worth it. It wasn't loud at all. There was just one plug socket (?), would be quite little for 4 people! You have to bring your own linen and toilet paper. There are forest tracks all around the buildings, however the bathroom was quite clean. WiFi reception varies. Kitchen ist big but not atmospheric.

Stayed in 4 Bed Dorm, which was quite small, no lockers. Room pointed to the lake and had glass front, you could directly get to the terrace this way, quite cool! Big and clean kitchen, comfy common area although a bit cold as the room is quite big and has also a glas front. Staff at reception friendly and helpful. Bathroom was also quite cold, there was a problem with the heater. in these days Great location, directly at the lake, it's possible to have a look at the stars from there!!

My time in this hostel was soooo great!!! It really IS a palace! Great staff, meet very nice people, excellent breakfast (not included, but hey, 2,50 Euro is fine for this!!). Everything clean, big lockers in the room, big and comfy common areas and a wonderful terrace with music and bar in the evening/ afternoon. Good working computers (enough of them and for free), a lot of suggestions what to do if you don't have any plan arriving in Seville. The best place to enjoy Seville!!! Loved it!!

Great location. Had a single room, was clean and had a basin/ lavatory inside. Shared bathroom which smells a bit humid or ugly sometimes. Front door was always locked *thumb up*. Breakfast was okay. Just stayed one night there, so I didn't make contact with other people, as it is more like a small hotel.

Casa Babylon Backpackers

Malaga, Spain

Had a good stay there, met very nice people, "good vibes" , friendly staff. Rooms where clean, just the bathroom was a bit mouldy. Could that be a usual problem in older buildings in Southern Europe? (And this hostel is situated in an old building) Simple breakfast. Lockers in the room, the room itself could not be locked, but the door to get into to the garden of the hostel and another one to get into the hostel itself could just be opened with the key (or by the staff).

City Public Hostel

Copenhagen, Denmark

I met really great people in this Hostel and had lots of fun, slept in a 12 bed dorm which was completely fine. Also the big dorms don't seem to be that "frighthening". I wondered that there were little showers for quite many people, but taking a shower in the EVENING I didn't have to wait at all. There are lockers for every person, but no key(card)s which is a bit strange, but well... Didn't have my laptop with me so couldn't use WiFi, great that they have PCs with internet! Can recommend it!

Anker Hostel

Oslo, Norway

The common area is great to meet other people and to hang out, the beds and the room were comfortable. I met amazing people in this hostel and spent 2 fantastic days. There were no lockers in the room, but I don't care about this as I always have my documents with me. You have to borrow the things you need for cooking, plates etc, but I don't know if you have to pay for it, I don't think so. Internet Cafe is next-door, if you don't bring laptop or smartphone.

Very great hostel; a big clean room situated by the river; because Ennis is so small it's really close to the centre and all the pubs. Staff provided a map giving you an impresion of the town and very useful advices which you should pubs to go to. Would definitely come back!

A great hostel, very clean, very secure, a great staff. I met interesting people and really enjoyed my stay there. The only thing I didn't like was the price for internet (5 Euro per hour, as far as I remember), but that depends on your own desire. Can definitely recommend it.

The staff was great; really sincere and helpful. The room was very basic, there where just the two bunk beds and a rubbish bin and we could put sth. onto the window sill. Room would be more comfortable with e.g. a mirror and a little shelf.
