Excellent place for a backpacker. Advantage is the location: so close to Khao San Road and far enough to avoid harmful noise from the street's circus. Rooms are fairly large, clean and cheap, seen some of the nicest dorms here. Food downstairs is quite good and electronic security key provided - so during the night you are little bit independent. Got help with the luggage storage while travelling to neighbouring countries from Bangkok. Another advantage - great people Nate and Tip. Recommended !

Nice place, nice staff. Room / bathroom clean, TV/air-con working. Tall building (7 floors) so good for views/photos if you do not plan to visit other towers for Saigon panorama. Everything OK except price - definitely too much. Wi-Fi stopped working after midnight, also some popular websites are blocked (in whole Vietnam supposedly). Located on the most popular for tourists street, but be careful - thefts are normal outside in public during day - fortunately around hotel was safe. Recommended.
Place is fine - rooms and bathrooms OK. TV and air-con working. Beds and rooms are clean. There may be some security issues, particularly with the balcony door (can be opened from outside), also did not see any cameras; but security guy is present during night, so it should be OK. Owners should improve how they allocate guests. Location good and quiet. But wi-fi non-existent (maybe because of incredibly long corridors). Watch out one tuk-driver - takes to the shops. For that price - recommended.
Perfect place to start enjoying Phnom Penh. Got help with both motorbike and Vietnamese visa - left passport as m-bike deposit and on return next day viet-visa was ready. Staff during day is excellent, if any issues ask all FAQs the lady that speaks good english. Very safe - cameras/security OK. Few tables with menus in front of entrance - also place to meet others. Bus tickets same prices as in offices - checked. Only some noises during night mainly by young staff sleeping there. Recommended!
On arrival to bus station, tuktuk was waiting and was free. Hotel not in bad location, but it's easy to get lost in maze of streets. Staff is nice and polite, but do not know about deposit already paid during booking. Rooms' size is average but they are clean - bathrooms are big. TV/air-con OK. Atmosphere is not bustling, but in restaurant opposite the street music is loud until 00.00 plus some kind of strange knocking during night on floors. Tuk-driver unpleasantly annoying. Good for few nights
Arrived by plane to Siem Reap with 2h delay - driver was still waiting & pickup was free. Hotel with many rooms - mine was large, clean & hotel-standards. TV, air-con, large bathroom. Disadvantage was very weak Wi-Fi & some noise issues with other guests. Good security, even guard during night. Staff is very OK & friendly, manager speaks good english. Room cleaned every day. Help with bike & info. Not pushy with tuktuk, but trips & options in room menu. 5min to Pub Street by bike. Recommended.
Very nice and polite staff, room actually quite basic and little bit not in good place (suspended above common room / restaurant) but in general not bad. We wished we had more rooms to choose. Little bit too expensive, but thanks.

Very elegant, majestic and clean hotel - very nice staff - some speak very good english, others less. Breakfast OK, location is perfect, 3min walk to Khao San road but far enough to have quiet nights. WiFi is acceptable and Tv/Air-con OK. Single rooms are not huge, but its still 5 stars of budget accommodation, comparing to hostels on Khaosan I had been before this one. For quiet people rather than for party-animals. Good security with cameras in corridor. Again - very clean. Highly recommended.

It's not good place to stay. It is loud, dirty and very unfriendly. Type of guests are usually drank, rude clubbers - this affects how they treat the staff, which in turn reflects staff approach to others non-party customers. Toilets are disgusting (prefer squat toilets in the jungle), without windows/extractors, and often "fully filled". Rooms with fans have no air/oxygen. Doors are padlocked and room-size=bed-size. Some staff are really nice and do their best, but one couple is not ok, Avoid.

Bizarre experience. After 1h delay of flights didn't expect anyone waiting, so called hotel from airport. During 15min conversation lady speaking as quiet as possible, wasn't able to say whether driver would come or not. After agreed to be picked up I waited another 2.5h at airport. Asked for a quiet room to sleep after 16h flights - got a room above kitchen ovens and a 4.30am wake up with pots below. Breakfast included? - no, lady at reception shouting (!!) at me (??) to pay for breakfast! Wow
Pretty nice sport-related place - many people staying there actively do something or attend sport events. Crystal Palace stadium close, some kind of sport events (beach volleyball, swimming, etc.). Very solid breakfast and restaurant. Top floors allow the general view of the area (which quite encouraged my exploration of the area, even if not planned - stadium, park with fake animals, ruins and tall TV mast. Staff very OK. Close to train station but NOT close to central London. Recommended.
Very overpriced. Close to metro station (10 seconds) but far from the city center. Rather clean, at least on the first day. Reception OK, permitted to choose room and check-in earlier that supposed, but had to wait 10 minutes before stop being ignored and allowed to speak. Value for money received the lowest rating in my rating.
Since it's not a hostel/hotel, but guest house, I would not compare it to them. I stayed 2 nights in 2 different rooms (without reason) and cannot complain. Rooms are clean, staff is very friendly, TV in room, bathrooms OK. I did NOT see any bed bugs (and I would really write about it, since I react very badly for their bites - other people reviews sometimes save me). Also checking out is more flexible and friendly. The only HUGE disadvantage (and lowest score in rating) is price. Recommended.
We stayed few extra days here, since room prices decreased for this period and the value was unbeatable. Very happy with cleanliness and atmosphere, and particularly very friendly staff. We did not wake up for included breakfast even once, but offered at least coffee many times after breakfast finished. The wi-fi was superb, room was very warm. The only disadvantage was very small shower and even more annoying shower curtain. Spirit of Vatican City in neighborhood present. Highly Recommended.
Very friendly staff, close to Vatican and Cipro Station. May be very quiet or noisy, depending what guests are staying at the property (which is dispersed over few floors). Cable TV available, very good WI-FI and property is very clean. Sometimes it can be difficult to reach someone in charge but highly recommended.
I was able to checked-in earlier than supposed to (without any extra charge). Room was very clean, very large and temperature OK (warm in February). Disadvantage is the location (far from city center and not even close to San Giovanni), but ironically walkable distance to Rome Colosseum. It could also be noisy during breakfast and when someone is checking-in. Privacy respected, but rubbish were not removed from room for few days. No TV but strong WI-FI. But generally peaceful and recommended.
Very friendly, respectful staff, very close (!) to Termini Station. Can be little bit noisy (due to the bathroom-like-tiles being everywhere I suppose), but I was able to sleep during the day (after arrival) without any interruption. I had no TV in the room but had strong WI-FI. Room clean and refreshed every day. Some city maps supplied here served me during the whole stay in Rome. Additionally I had basin and desk in the room. Only disadvantage was the room temperature (too cold). Recommended.
Far from center. Difficult to find (had to walk around build. to find right entrance). 5th entry was correct (from back), but had to call recept. to open door. Recept. OK, but 2 strange things happened: 1) I was told the room is already paid! (and my card was charged ALREADY, no cash required), but I got an agreement to sign. 2) Later I realized that it was the permission to debit my card FULL amount, together with silly conditions, READ carefully! Deposit 10% from hostelworld lost. ButNoProblem

TV with sat in the room was OK.
Recommended, many rooms, clean, lifts and good breakfast.
Very recommended as long as prices stay low. Nice staff, good breakfast, only location little bit dodgy - but a lot of police in Athens so it's all right.
Nice place if you like more freedom.
Recommended if you like no curfew.
Apartments are clean, with basic facilities and wi-fi. Good value for money. Quiet in low season, without staff and reception during night. Acceptable distance (by walk) to the port and beaches.
FIRST: Hotel is nice, staff is nice, style is nice (with some older furnishings). SECOND: It is clean; BUT THIRD: Beds and wooden floors are full of BED BUGS. Although place is very clean, they cannot handle bed bugs. If you are allergic to the bug's bites, you are in trouble. Previous review from girls from N.Zeland was very useful. Leaving all possible lights on did not stop the fact that I did not sleep all night and in the morning I checked-out with more than 20-30 red, itching bumps on skin
Friendly place with wi-fi. Friendly staff, basic facilities, safe and good value for money. Only sometimes you can hear too loud conversations in the reception area, particularly by staff themselves, but generally its acceptable. I think this hotel comprises more than one building, but they are very close I suppose.
Ok hotel - close to beach and ferry port. Pick-up is an advantage. Got transferred from port to the hotel, then left the hotel without remembering the road and location and later could not find the way back to it. Working a-c and t-v, family.
Hostel is based in Perissa (best beaches in Santorini I think), but other towns (Oia, Fira) can be easily explored: rented ATV, scooters, public buses, car, tour coach, etc many options. Wi-fi with very low range. Clean place, reception may be difficult to reach. Recommended for backpackers and individuals, not sure about families with children.
Having scooters and quad-bikes is a huge advantage. More like a hostel and place for backpackers to me - rather than hotel. But all hostels/hotels are the same in Santorini - white-painted houses with blue doors and windows.
Very nice place, location is very good (assuming you want to be around Perissa - and not Oia or Fira (!!!). Scooter and quad-bikes rental next to the hostel, tours also offered there. Only wi-fi is available around swimming pool and not in the rooms, which is quite disadvantage. Recommended.
I stayed here again, very nice room this time, working tv with remote control, nice staff as usual, but very average (!!!) breakfast - no rolls or cheese.
Mixed feelings, staff little bit hostile and I felt not welcome at all, but maybe it is the way if you stay in family-run hostel. Although nice lady (does not speak english well) and very good breakfast. Early morning wake up by housekeeping staff (or family member) with knocking the walls and finally visiting the room to ensure whether you ready to go (???).
Although no remote control for both tv and air-conditioning, it's nice, quiet place not far from the town and castle.
Reception quite ok, I did not use bar or restaurant, but it seemed average. Do not expect nice views on the ground floor, but quite ok if you like quiet place. Acceptable distance for centre.
Nice hotel, nice reception, location ok if you get there from main streets or beaches. Swimming pool average, I just saw it from the lift.
The best hostel I stayed in Luxor during my travel within Egypt. Close to train station. Very original (Australian) decoration and nice rooftop. Perfect air-condition and almost nice TV. I had shared bathroom, but only for my use. Great staff and very friendly. Clean and secure room. Recommended to take train station / airport pick-up. I took a taxi and SILLY taxi driver tried to take me to 3 different hostels before finally taking me to the Boomerang. Do not let them fool you. RECOMMENDED.

The best hostel (hotel actually) I stayed in Cairo during my travel within Egypt. Very close to main square (Midan) and 200m from Cairo Museum. Top panoramic views from 15th floor. Perfect air-condition and nice TV. I had private bathroom and no complains. Great staff and very friendly. Clean and quite secure room. I was frighten when someone grabbed my bag downstairs when waiting for the lift - but he was working for the hotel - happens everywhere in Egypt. Very cooperative staff. RECOMMENDED.
Staff was nice and even if I booked a single - I got a 4 bed dorm (but all for myself - no problem with that). Kitchen and bathroom nice. Location is not that bad - you walk to the center - buy many tourist attractions on the way - this is the essence of traveling. Cons: NO LIFT TO THE 5th FLOOR (high ceiling old mansion building) and COMPLETELY NO SOUNDPROOF WALLS - you can even hear whispering.
Location not the best, taxi / car is the best way to get there. There are also bus / tram stops but you need to walk little bit. Room (my was single) was very small (first impression is very claustrophobic). But very good and friendly staff and quite clean rooms. Two rooms in one flat, shared kitchen and bathroom between them. Not very soundproof walls. Recommended but without excitement.
Noisy and banging doors. Paid a lot of money for a night before next day meeting and could not sleep because every minute people were going to smoke cigarettes outside. Outrage. Not everyone comes to the hostels to have a party. Mental torture. NOT RECOMMENDED.
I came here very happy and left very disappointed with the staff. Overpriced place - not worth the money and not recommended. Although cleaning staff is very nice and friendly and they do their best but this is very old building.
Room not nice and the reception staff very aggressive and unfriendly. I regret I stayed there because of staff. Too expensive and very low standard. People around hostel smoking cigarettes outside and the staircase, causing all the smoke going into rooms. Not healthy, specially that I asked for the non-smoking room.
I stayed there many times. At the moment there is everything that traveller needs in hostel - including towels with shampoons, plates with cutlery in each room. I hope the prices will stay the same. Very close to Metro station and close to Kensington (most of London museums there). Recommended.
Terrible, unpleasant and unacceptable reception staff. Not recommended.

London School of Economics' student hall, available for tourist during summer. I quite enjoyed staying here at 9th floor, with amazing views of London. But not very good location, you need either use a bus or a taxi to get here, no metro station close to this place.
The place is too expensive for that kind of place. But good location and quite secure place.

Supposed to be satellite TV and balcony in every room. TV with ONLY 3 public spanish-only language and NO BALCONY. Single room in some kind of hotel extension and not in the main building. Receptionists busy flirting with guys from the opposite kebab shop. Recommended for couple of days.
Nice staff and nice, big rooms. Good location, close to bus station (if you decided to stay in San Antoni, and NOT in Eivissa of course).
Receptionist tries to make every check-in too personal and sometimes it has very negative result. Highly not recommended.
It is a large hotel, rather than a cheap hostel. Very good standards, mainly german-speaking, elderly couples stayed there during my stay, playing Bingo in the big restaurant every evening and browsing brochures with optional trips in the lobby. Very friendly, professional and helpful staff (in uniforms). Recommended.
During the low season there is no one at the reception - but this is not a problem. At least the main door to the hostel (hotel) should be closed automatically and not with key by every quest. Very kind and helpful staff (both lady and gentleman) and very nice rooms. Very recommended.
Guy at the reception left me with mixed feelings about this place and I cannot say I will ever come back to this hostel. Receptionist tries to make every check-in too personal and sometimes it has very negative result. He took my passport and left it overnight in pub - I got it 24h later. Made my stay in Ibiza complete hell. Highly not recommended.
Good place to stay for couple of days, satellite TV with many channels is an advantage, rooms may be too small and walls are not sound-proof, but staff and and some advise from reception is very helpful, even if some of them are simple adverts of local businesses. Maps are ridiculous but still useful. Recommended.
Good clean hostel, staff may be little bit too serious about their roles (particularly now, when it is top rated hostel) - but they are really nice, have knowledge about city. Perfect location, very friendly and home-like look. Only 2 Macs with internet - the only minus. Oh and one more thing...there should be someone to chill out tension between staff - it is passed to guests.
I have given this hostel Excellent (100%) for Character. Nice grandpa did not say a word, took payment + 10% Deposit (£5) already paid on hostelworld + did not give the change (£6) = very expensive hostel. But very good man in general - gave me nice old room, had a feeling it was haunted and ghosts were present. Room with balcony - great view, central location 300m to Hard Rock Cafe, etc. Recommended for single ghost hunters... rather not for couples or families.
My first hostel in Portugal and very good impression on me. Noisy from the street (but this was big plus / advantage for me - nice neon lights from the street, good audibility of the music venue from the opposite building and during my stay - celebration of thousand of Porto football fans on the streets and square nearby). Nice memories of Porto city. Location is very good also, staff doing their best, looked like having troubles with people from the street rather than with the guests.
