Great hostel, lives up to its reputation. Nice location in the old town, close enough to the action but not the noise. There's a supermarket close by. Most nights there was a dinner you could sign up for 3€ and there were the usual things like pub crawls and tours that you could join. The staff were really friendly, knowledgable and helpful—especially Ben, what a legend! Dorm was cosy but completely adequate and the bunks were actually comfy

Sant Jordi Mambo Tango

Barcelona, Spain

Easy to get to, close to metro, supermarkets, atms and plenty of tapas bars. The 9 bed dorm was not enjoyable: it's next to reception so there's lots of noise, the bunks aren't comfortable, there's only 1 window, only 1 bright light that cannot be dimmed and only power point space to plug in 4 cables for the whole room. Also the cleaners would barge in around 10am each morning. The hostel did arrange activities most nights including food and going out to bars and (terrible commercial) clubs.

The Cat's Pajamas Hostel

Truly a wonderful hostel to stay at. The 6 bed dorm had plenty of space and it was great having the private toilet + bathroom in the room. Beds were comfy and had light and powerpoint beside them. The wifi wasn't so great from the 3rd floor unfortunately. Great kitchen facilities and a huge communal table and area in the kitchen for socialising. Use of the washing machine was 2Euro which wasn't too bad. Plenty of good bars/cafes/supermarkets/latenight kebabs and underground station closeby

Wombats City Hostel Munich

Munich, Germany

Basically across the road form the main station. There's an Aldi around the corner and plenty of kebab shops too. The breakfast is not worth it, but the bar is fantastic. Wifi was pretty bad from the dorm. The 8 bed dorm was quite large and clean plus it had it's own bathroom/toilet. Weirdly, there were no communal bathrooms so you'd always have to wait if yours was busy. Staff were friendly and helpful. No kitchen is a bit annoying. Overall it's pretty good value for money. Loads of Australians

Hi there! Thanks a lot! If you have any ideas how to improve our breakfast feel free to let us know. There are communal showers on the 1st floor actually. Just ask at reception for the key. :) And the kitchen problem. It IS a shame I know. Unfortunately it is chronic and there will be no solution until the world is changed. The matter of aching fact is that we`re not allowed to have a kitchen due to fire safety regulations. Check. We`re so sorry about that! Have some peanuts and take it easy!

Great dorm rooms—stayed in the 6 person and there was lots of space, windows and a good private bathroom. Wifi worked well all over the building. The staff were helpful. Nice to have a pool table and bar area. Always useful to have a kitchen, however there really weren't many plates/bowls/spoons etc and nothing in the way of oil/salt/pepper. Not too far from main station, but it is a decent walk. Didn't have the breakfast. Also it's true about the elevator being terrible.

The hostel is located pretty close to a train station. The 6 bed doom was huge! Large windows for lots of light, a comfy bunk and shower and toilet in the room was nice. The wifi was generally pretty good in the room and around the hostel. Having a kitchen is so useful and saves a lot of money, however there often weren't enough bowls etc. Not so much of a social atmosphere unfortunately, most people just did their own thing or were in large groups. Staff were helpful although a little obtuse

Alias Youthhostel

Antwerp, Belgium

Its located a short (maybe 15 minutes) walk from central station. There's a tram line close by that runs into the main square. A good supermarket is also very close. The bunks weren't that comfortable and there were no lockers in the room. Also be prepared to walk up a few flights of stairs with your luggage. The shower had great pressure and temperature. The free breakfast was reasonable but not really sufficient for a big day and the staff were very helpful with tips, suggestions and info.

Home Made Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
97%

Great location on the Pest side - close to bars, good restaurants, supermarket, attractions and public transport (tram + metro). Super helpful staff 24/7. Single beds are always great and these ones were very comfortable. 3 bathrooms meant there was never an issue. Not a party hostel, which is nice and anyway, Budapest nightlife is closeby so you have the best of both worlds. Only negative would be that 2000Ft / 7Euro for laundry was a little steep.

Greg & Tom Hostel

Easily one of the best hostels I have stayed at. The free breakfasts AND dinners (beer too!) are incredible (satisfying, healthy and varied) and a great way to save money. The hostel itself is super close to Kraków Central station. A very clean place and having single beds instead of bunks was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful for things like organising tours or advice. It is small (1 toilet, 2 showers each floor) but that never seemed to be much of an issue.

The hostel is located in an apartment block and it really felt more like a home since the staff don't stay 24/7 at the hostel (this was not a bad thing though). The staff were always super helpful and it was great to have breakfast included. During my stay I was 1 of only 2 people in a whole 6-person dorm, which was nice. Very clean and secure and close to nowy świat (a popular street with bars, clubs and food). Will definitely stay again.

Oslo Hostel Central

Very new and clean hostel only a short walk from Oslo S station and close to public transport, shopping area and supermarkets. Fantastic breakfast included: cereal, fruit, bread, meat, cheese, etc. Great facilities, such as laundry and iron, kitchen and fast wifi. Helpful staff. Housekeeping was a little too enthusiastic—knocked on the door at 09:45 to clean!

Considering the location, free breakfasts, and other free activities (pub crawl, wine and cheese night, trivia etc), this is great value for money. Facilities were clean and beds were comfortable. The internet connection was sometimes dodgy, but wasn't really that bad

Rooms were a little small and stuffy, but other than that it's hard to fault this place—especially for the great price.

The New York Loft Hostel

New York, USA
91%

Favourite thing about this place is the location: very close to an L train stop (takes you to Manhattan in 15 mins), good bars close by, and the Brooklyn Natural Foods corner store that has everything you could need (seemed to be open 24 hrs). Free breakfast is decent if you can get up for it (6-9am) but aside from that and the weekly BBQ there wasn't much in the way of social activities. Just means it's up to you to meet other people really. Courtyard/deck are great.

Khaosan Tokyo Samurai

Tokyo, Japan
69%

Having a hostel with many floors but not an elevator is frustrating (the staff did offer to help carry bags though). The ladders for top bunk were made inaccessible due to being positioned against a wall and a desk. Showers smelt a little funky. Thin walls make it especially loud when people decide to use a hair dryer at midnight (perhaps the hostel could limit hair dryer usage during reasonable sleep hours). Location was decent, but Khaosan Kabuki is far newer and superior.

Nagomi-Ryokan Yuu

Kyoto, Japan

Great hostel, tucked away on a lane among mainly small residences and workshops. Short walk to Kyoto station and easily walkable to Kawaramachi-dōri (although far enough away so it's not that busy or noisy). Facilities in the room were good, nice to have private bathroom. The Japanese breakfast was delicious and great value! My only issue was the size of our room: I'm convinced we (2 people) were given a 1 person room as there was not enough space for 2 rolled out futons and unpacked suitcases

Great bar and lounge area on 1F. Super helpful staff. Bedroom was not large (although that is in line with Japanese-style) but enough space. Bed was comfortable. Only frustration was that we could not use the elevator before 9AM and as we needed to check out early that meant lugging our suitcases down 4 floors. Still, would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic hostel with super friendly and helpful staff. Some nice things were: having breakfast included, an incredibly comfortable bed, free kung fu class and a quiet courtyard to relax away from the general madness of Beijing. Will definitely stay there again.

Very helpful staff and lots of information around the hostel. The bed (although very comfortable) in the double room covered most of the usable floorspace, would probably choose a Japanese-style tatami room next time. Washing machine didn't work very well. Close to Kyoto station, which is important. Close to good bus lines too.
