Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent view. Great beds. No internet for over a week...kept saying they would fix it, never did. Super overpriced meals in comparison to outside the hostel. Extortionate taxi service, again, in comparison to outside the hostel.

Great staff! Two problems though: not the best location (far from the touristy stuff), and the place was freezing! They had heaters, but didn't turn them on...economizing?

Hello xxxxx !! If we didn't tell you that the ac remote was on the locker, and if after being with us you think that "ramblas" are the center of the city, it means that we failed the comunication with you. We are really sorry, hope you can come back and enjoy all the rest of barcelona that does not have a pickpocket every 50mts, and overmore a warm room...:) hugs! V.

DC Lofty - Convention Center

Washington DC, USA

Not somewhere I'd go back to or ever dream of recommending. It's in a shady bit of town, looks like it's about to fall apart from the outside. They've got a shoes off policy, which would be great, except that the place isn't clean enough to go barefoot/socks in. There were hoards of ants in the kitchen when I woke up...spend an extra five bucks and go to the hostel up the street.

Northwest DC around Convention Center in downtown, is clearly not the shady bit of town. This somewhat puts a smile on my face, as I can only imagine what you would think of the SE and NE areas =). We do clean everyday, and as long as everyone follows (including yourself mister) no-shoe policy the mopping and the vacuuming do the job! Also, sorry about the ants, but with the windows open in the morning and someone throwing jam on the floor over night - well we're sort of asking for it =)

Old City Hostel Istanbul

The location was great. Security wasn't great, though. The door was always open, and random Turkish people would walk in and out freely. Some members of the staff were great, but one particular member of the staff was far too forward and sleazy with not only myself, but also a number of other single women staying in the hostel. Wasn't the cleanest place in the world, either. The sheets didn't fit the beds, so everyone ended up sleeping on the matresses, and the floor was sticky with beer and food mess. It's

Really nice place. Clean and organized. Located on kind of a weird street, but close enough to touristy stuff and local stuff.

They don't have normal keys...they give you watch things with chips in them that open your door and locker. Unfortunately, there were two computer thefts and one money theft during my stay. I doubt that would've happened if the hostel had lockers with places for individual padlocks. Technology... Great place to stay, though. Friendly, accommodating staff and fantastic location in relation to the important museums and plazas.

Nice place, cleaner than I expected. The staff is helpful and cheery, and the place has tapas tours, cantina crawls, walking tours, paella, sangria and mojito nights. The garden out back and terrace on the roof were great.
