Very safe secure hostel with friendly helpful staff, cheap excellent meals. Close to Nairobi National Park, David Sheldrick Animal Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre. In-house Travel Bureau who organise safaries e.g. to Masai Mara at very reasonable costs. Highly recommend

Le Bamboo Guesthouse, Mahebourg, Mauritius
10.0
14th Dec 2014

This is a delightful place to stay in a private guesthouse.....the family are very gracious, friendly and helpful. They will pick you up from the airport and deliver you back for a small fee. Breakfast is included and you can also arrange for evening meals, for a small fee, made by the proprietor. The guesthouse is close to the centre of Mahebourg and situated on the river with great views, and importantly in summer, great breezes. I highly recommend this guesthouse.

Lovely little hostel right in the Old Town and close to everything. I loved Tallinn and wish I could have stayed longer. Didn't get to find the 'almost' 24 hr grocery shop, but there's a reasonable basement café just down the road, and closer to Town Hall square a cafe making the biggest pancakes ever. Don't forget to pop into Ill Draakon medieval cafe for a magical experience.

Great little hostel close to all the sights in the Old Town, and .a stones throw from the train and bus stations. Lena makes you all feel like a family rather than staying in a hostel....I was sad to leave.

Wonderful hostel so close to waterbus, St. Lucia train station, bus station and the Grand Canal , Great value for money, especially in Venice. In an atmospheric area away from the main tourist strip, close to the Jewish Quarter, with souvenirs, eats, etc. cheaper than central Venice.

Smart Place Gare du Nord, Paris, France

18th Sep 2014

Great location just down the road from Gare du Nord (train to Charles de Gaulle airport & the Channel train); also just a block from Anvers metro station, Sacre Coeur church, and Montmartre. Small but good value and a wee lift to save humping packs & cases up the stairs.

View Property Reply

A million thanks for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed the hostel's location near Gare du Nord, the Sacré Coeur Basilica, Moulin Rouge and the Montmartre District. The train station offers a lot of train connections to the main touristic sites of Paris. Regarding the lift, even though it's tiny it's quite handy and works perfectly fine. It means a lot to us that you had the impression of good value for money and we hope to see you again at Smartplace Paris on your next trip to Paris!

No clear indication of the hours for the bar or the restaurant, or of what was on offer food-wise. Came back to the hostel/hotel to eat on the Sunday evening at 6pm to find bar & restaurant closed and no food available. Required a trip back into Segovia to find food. Supermarket suggestion was no use, as it also was closed, being Sunday !!

Great hostel, right in centre of 'old city'; great staff, who greeted you whenever you appeared (a little touch that makes the solo, sometimes lonely, traveler feel less so. Hi Lucia, thanks for all your help, advice, and beautiful smile.

Great location...across the boulevarde and just around the corner from the road up to the old town; two mini-supermarkets down the street and one open until 11pm only a block away. Very helpful & friendly staff; bathrooms cleaned twice a day; breakfast basics, tea & coffee, oil & condiments for self-cooking all supplied;. And hot showers non-stop. 3 common areas plus kitchen & balcony off it. What more could a backpacker want????

The position is excellent and the staff friendly, but their booking system needs an overhaul to say the least. I booked into an 8-bed mixed dorm for 5 nights. The 2nd night at 1am I was requested to move but refused--9 in the room that night another different 9 the following night and 10 on the next night. Everyone I spoke to had moved dorms at least once during their stay, regardless of how far ahead they had booked or how short or long their stay!

The bar was great...lots of locals pop in for breakfast and/or a drink, which added to the atmosphere. The hostel was very clean and close to all the main attractions. However, the en suite for our 5-bed dorm was very small...couldn't sit straight on, on the toilet! And with the loo in the same room as the shower, not ideal with 5 trying to share it. Roof terrace was cool, but kitchen on very top floor also, with no supermarket close by, so didn't get used. Very clean, and friendly staff.

Very friendly and helpful staff; lots of free tours (for a tip) and activities on offer, many at a discount. Paella and sangria nights, bar open nights. Great location close to everything, with great leafy square and eateries at the end of the street. I extended my stay as Granada had lots to do and see....lively multicultural city with a great vibe!! Only one small complaint....one shower with only toilet in same room not enough for 6 sharing. But having own kitchen area incl. fridge was A1
