I chose this hostel because of good reviews as all other reasonably priced rooms near ExCeL were already taken. I needed a good night's rest, so I booked a private room (at an insanely high price), only to be greeted by a creaky bunk bed and nothing else in a tiny room. One wall bordered on a bathroom and I could hear everything, including the incredibly loud hand drier - no way to sleep in there. The bathroom was small with broken tiles on floor. Avoid the private room. Dorms seemed OK though.
This hostel is great for everyone who wants to meet new people on their travels - there are a lot of opportunities to socialise. Staff is really friendly and the location is ideal for trips to central London. However, the street this hostel is located on is a bit shady; the interior of the hostel shows heavy wear and feels grubby even though it's clean.

This is the second time I've stayed here in the past year because this really is a great hostel for when you're in transit and need a place to stay. The Wi-Fi is now free throughout the building, which was a pleasant surprise. They still give you a free welcome drink when you come in and clean linen for your bed, and the bar next to the reception is really nice. This is not really a hostel I'd use for a longer stay, but it's perfect for a night or two.
No free wi-fi, which was what bothered me most. The room was not much either. No towels were provided and the furniture was old, worn and pretty useless. The hallways and the common room are really clean and modern, but the room was a disappointment.
A very nice hostel, perfect if you are in transit and want a good night's sleep. It's right next to a metro station and easily accessible. In close vicinity is also a small fast food shop that sells the best pita I've ever eaten. I would gladly stay here again.
A nice enough hostel located very close to the Westbahnhof. I only stayed there for a night while in transit, and it served its purpose. I've stayed in better hostels, though; this one was pretty average. You need your own padlock for the lockers and wi-fi is only free in the common area (if you want it in your room, you have to pay for it). It really is located only a few minutes' walk from the station, though, so it's perfect for anyone who needs a night of sleep before moving on.
A great hostel, especially if you're in transit and just have to spend the night or two before you head on. The whole place is very clean and really looks more like a hotel. The rooms are nice and clean; I especially liked the bathrooms because they were just so much better than the bathrooms I'm used to seeing in hostels. The hostel is pretty far away from Frankfurt's more interesting districts, though, but it's right next to a S-Bahn station so it's not really a problem.
Hostel is very new and clean, but it was pretty empty which took some fun out of it. Must be pretty amazing in the high season however. The hostel was very safe, too - everything from elevator to rooms can only be operated with a key card.
Nice hostel, excellent location, very good for a short stay in Galway. Has free wi-fi and breakfast; rooms are a bit small and dim but if you don't plan to stay for more than a couple of days you should be fine.
Bathrooms are tiny but useful, hostel has A LOT of character and it has one of the best common rooms I've ever seen in a hostel (there are actually two,one of them has a TV and a Wii ...). Free breakfast was good and kitchen is always open so you can make your own meals. There is also an incredibly cute dog
Itaca is a really nice hostel! We were staying in a double room which included free breakfast and towels, and the location is just perfect, just off Las Ramblas. The only thing that bothered us was the lack of WiFi in the building (you had to go to the main building as there are two) but they installed it on the last day of our stay. I will definitely stay here again.
Heart of Amsterdam is a great hostel to stay at! Very clean and located in the red light district, it's the perfect hostel if you want to experience the city and have a place to sleep close at hand. I'd gladly stay at this hostel again.
