This is one sweet hostel - nice kitchen and dining / outdoor patio areas to mingle with other travelers, awesome room quarters with private lounge area to chill - it's like your very own apartment :) It's in a good location too, not far from Mont Royal and the Old Port, Notre Dam Ave, Victoria Square, the Biodome. Staff were excellent and security was good. Thumbs up!

Nice relaxed hostel in a great location - close to the Byward Market, National Gallery of Canada, Parliament buildings, Rideau Canal - all the cool stuff in Ottawa! Right next to major bus lines and the Metro supermarket as well. The rooms are cosy and the living room and kitchen area have a nice homely feel to them. Overall a good place to chill and explore Ottawa from.

5th Aug 2013

Nice little apartment turned into a hostel, perfect place to stay if your in New York for a quick visit. Location is great, staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was fantastic - a great place to stay if you are a solo traveler! Nice garden out back to chill and full access to net flix and cable TV on those days you don't want to go out. The kitchen however is very basic (no spatulas or cutting knives, chopping boards for cooking) and the gas stove very dodgy; it's best to go out for meals.

Cosy hostel in good central location in Washington D.C. Staff were friendly, the rooms lovely and quiet and there was a good overall atmosphere to the place. Less than a 15 min walk to everything (bus station, natural history museum, White House etc.) as well.

Beautiful hostel in a great location. Just 15 mins walk from down town Miami Beach, Miami Beach and well connected by buses to the city, South Beach etc. The facilities were top notch, almost hotel standard! Great pool, piano and breakfast. If you are looking to meet people however this is not the place! Most people are in large groups making it almost impossible to mix if you are a solo traveler like myself. A lot of the people staying there were also very young (15-18 yo).

Excellent hostel for meeting people! Great atmosphere and cool facilities (pool, jacuzzi, table tennis, pool table) at a super good price. Special thanks must go to Amanda for making me feel very welcome on my arrival :D Staff in general were always willing to help, take you out to places which was great. The rooms were comfortable with a tv and a sofa, fridge and lockers to store your valuables, and the location was good too being only 15 min walk to the shops, beach and eating places.

I have to come back to here and Portland in general! The place has such a good vibe. The hostel is in a great location, close to downtown, the river, places to eat, parks. The rooms are lovely and quiet, while the rest of the hostel has a great social atmosphere, a good place to meet other fellow travelers. It also has a fantastic beer garden out back which plays host to open mike nights and various hostel run events e.g. Movies on projector etc. The staff were great and the facilities top notch

Great hostel close to the city centre and water front. The place has a great kitchen and cooking facilities and some good areas to chill out (roof top and ground level patios, library room, tv room, games room with pool table). The atmosphere wasn't too bad although having a few more hostel run bbqs and keeping the roof patio open later wouldn't hurt. The rooms are cosy but could do with some air conditioning, especially during the summer months when it is warm and humid.

Great atmosphere at this hostel. The beaver bar is always busy making it a great place to meet fellow travelers. Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds cosy to sleep in. The hostel is in a great location close to downtown and is well connected by bus routes to the hot springs and various other parts of town. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

The hostel is in a good central location. It does not have cooking facilities however and lacks atmosphere most of the time. On leaving I left my cell phone at reception. Staff found it right away and put it in the lost and found for me to collect. When I came back to get it, it was gone...staff were the only ppl with access to the lost and found. The managers made little effort to help me find it. In short be careful with your valuables here, there is a thief amongst the staff, don't trust them

Hands down one of the best hostels I have visited on my travels! Friendly staff, fantastic location (right next to Creekside, 30 min stroll to Whistler Village, 5 min walk to Alta lake), great facilities (jacuzzi, tv room, patio, large rooms) and a magnificent kitchen with every utensil you need to cook a good feed. The rooms are lovely and quiet = good sleep, the place has a real wilderness cosy cabin feel to it. It was very quiet when I stayed which was great; party in town, sleep well at home

Super cool hostel in a great location, close to downtown, well connected by bus routes, and not to far a walk from the ocean. The bar was great with live music and good beer/food. A good atmosphere and a great place to stay in Victoria overall.

Excellent place to stay in beautiful Tofino, right on the water front for fantastic views, close to the town centre, right next to wharf where you can catch a tour to the hot springs, whale watching, lone pine hike. The staff were friendly and facilities were top notch (great kitchen, dining room, pool table room etc).

Fantastic hostel! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the pub crawl was awesome, the free dinners on Tuesday and Thursday were excellent and the proximity to the fish market, downtown Seattle, subway/buses and the EMP were ideal. When I come back to Seattle I'm staying here again for sure!

Very cool hostel in a great location, close to the city centre, Fishermans Wharf, Westfield shopping mall. Good atmosphere and great pub crawl nights (paper scissors rock tournament is a genius idea for a pub crawl!). A nice beer garden outside, well equipped kitchen and a lovely big lounge to relax were my highlights at this place. Staff were excellent as well :)

Probably the best hostel I have visited in all my travels across the globe. Excellent helpful staff, a great atmosphere for meeting new people (if you are a solo traveller this place is ideal), superb rooftop facilities and a cool bbq each week. Unfortunately I was robbed during my stay when a burglar broke in my locker and stole my valuables (laptop, money, cards etc.). The staff prompty installed video cameras afterward. Locks on each of the dorm doors however need to be installed I feel.

Not a bad hostel. Excellent helpful staff and good facilities (pool table, downstairs t.v., meals and drinks at the bar, wi-fi). Certainly not the place for a solo traveller however; most people arrive in pre-determined groups and so meeting new people is very difficult indeed in this hostel!

Good downtown location, near the main shopping district in BA. The staff were good and helpful (Fernanda in particular), they offer good day tours of the city and facilities aren't too bad in the common areas (TV, pool, movie room etc, cheap beers and water at reception). Unfortunately I was attacked by bed bugs during my stay (the staff however did say they would have the room fumigated to kill the bugs) and a merino wool top was stolen when i put it in for washing. Overall though an ok hostel.

Top place to stay in London, close to Shepherds Bush tube stations, Westfield Mall, pubs, restaurants and the central city in general. Good homely atmosphere in the place with a cozy pub and beer garden as well as a kitchen and living area to chill out in for those who want to watch TV. Beds are comfy and showers (a bunch of new ones have just been installed) are clean and always running hot. For those with laptops, free fast Wi-fi is available throughout the place. I'll be back!!

Pretty cool hostel, ideally located super close to the Edgware Road tube. Good pub downstairs and solid wi-fi throughout the place. Showers were excellent. The bed matresses were ok although a little uncomfortable. I was bitten by bed-bugs the first night of my stay, however the staff were very helpful in dealing with the issue, managing to find and kill the culprits. Overall an ok stay.

Another solid Astor Hostel in a good location, with friendly staff, great comfy beds, good showers, solid breakfast in the morning and a good chill out TV room for those that need a rest. The kitchen is smallish but not too bad and the rooms are very quiet for a good nights sleep.

Well located hostel, close to Edgware Road tube and central london in general. Great pub downstairs with lots going on including an excellent unplugged live music night on Thursday. Showers and beds were ok but the room was a little tight for space and there was painting being done on the wall right next to me during my stay, which didn't help my sleep (paint fumes). Staff were very friendly though and the place has a good atmosphere.

Good little hostel located in the heart of Shepherds Bush and only a short walk from tube stations, supermarkets, off licences, ethnic takeaway places and the Westfield Mall. Great little beer garden out the back, good pub downstairs and chill out living room upstairs. Staff are lovely and friendly, showers and beds are solid and Wi-Fi is good. Overall an excellent stay :)

Good little hostel in the Blue Mosque area of Istanbul, nice bedrooms and bathroom facilities, solid breakfast and friendly staff. Only real criticism is the lack of security - no lock for dorm room - its open most of the time which has the potential to be a bit dodgy. Overall a good hostel close to the city centre and attractions.

A solid hostel close to everything in Hammersmith - shopping centres, cocktail bars and the Thames walkway along the river (good place to have a run). Staff are lovely and friendly and rooms are well kept, the meals are pretty good in the bar and the hostel is well located - close to Shepherds Bush, Heathrow airport and the central city.

Excellent hostel this one. Staff were awesome, the place had a great vibe about it all the time, it was clean, quiet and had super cooking facilities! It's also in a good central location (just a few blocks from Gloucester Road Tube station) with the natural history and science museums, supermarkets, restaurants and Hyde Park right on it's doorstep.

Had a very good stay here. Staff were helpful, the chef and meals were great, breakfast was tasty (crosonts, fruit, coffees, hot chocolates and juice all provided), rooms were quiet and warm with individual lockers and bathrooms and showers were clean. The kitchen was very small with really only enough room for 1 person to cook at a time. This however made it super social :P It's a 5 min walk from the Willesden Green tube on the Jubilee line and there are food supplies close by. THumbs up!

2nd Dec 2010

Close to the Arsenal tube stop with an excellent bar downstairs, serving tasty, good priced and generously proportioned meals. Staff were helpful, the lockers good and the hostel nice and warm. The rooms however were cramped and the showers even tighter, with nowhere to put clothes and no privacy (anyone can come in to the bathroom at any time!). Also there is no soap in the toilets! Very unhygienic! TV only comes on when football is on and there is no kitchen to make own meals/drinks.

Not a bad stay this time. This place was however very cold with windows left wide open in the bathroom and toilets while it was snowing outside! Not ideal when you are ill!

Staff were friendly and helpful, beds weren't too bad and cooking facilities were top notch. The common room was a good place to hang out and watch movies with fellow travelers. Excellent continental breakfast is provided and the location is second to none in terms of its proximity to the city centre. The only average thing about this hostel is that the internet isn't free. Overall a good place to stay, I'd definitely stay again.

The most overpriced hostel in London. I was told the price advertised on Hostelworld is only for YHA members, even though there is no mention of this on the site - false advertising! I would have gone elsewhere had i known I would have to pay 3 pounds extra. No breakfast or internet is provided, beds are uncomfortable and hard to get into,the security is poor (some dorm doors were open 24/7), it's a long way from the city (especially when the tube is down) and there's no real atmosphere there.

Good fun hostel, with an excellent bar and TV area downstairs. They have a good selection of movies available to watch on the big screen HD TV's, you can buy pizza, have beers and play pool too in bar area. They also have a kitchen and common room upstairs. Wi-fi works most of the time and the staff are super cool. The bunk beds aren't too roomy but they do have a curtain for privacy. Showers are very good, and the location is ok, close to the underground and take out places. Very good overall

Excellent hostel in a good location, not 5 mins walk from Paddington Station and a half an hour from Oxford Street and the central city. Staff were excellent value and super friendly, the beds were comfy, the rooms, although not too big were nice and quiet at night (good for sleep) & the kitchen was a good size with all the utensils for cooking. To use the internet it does cost a few pounds though and the TV room could do with better seating. Overall though, I'd enjoyed my staff and will return

Not too bad a stay here. Location is pretty good, right in Temple Bar, the staff were friendly, security was ok and the kitchen good. On the downside, i turned up for breakfast at 9.30am and they had stopped serving, despite the fact it was supposed to be served from 7 - 10 am. Beds weren't that comfy and there wasn't much going in the place - everyone in the common room area seemed to be anti-social which made for a bad vibe. The internet (Wi-Fi) was very slow and did not work properly either.

Good hostel near the centre of Dublin; beds were reasonably comfy with a little tray under the bunks where you can store your belongings; room was a good size and had an ensuite which was handy. The best thing about this place though is the kitchen! It's pretty awesome - large with everything you need to cook up meals. Continental breakfast was good too, the staff were very friendly and there's a good bar next door - overall it's good place to stay :D

This hostel is in a good location (close to the Bus and Underground Stations). It has a good bar downstairs for those that wish to have a drink and the meals are tasty too. Drinks such as Bulmers Cider aren't cheap (I was charged 5 pounds 50 for a bottle) but there are good shot deals on spirits (2 pounds each). Beds are comfy and the curtain for each provides good privacy. The bathrooms were mint - spotless, modern & well kept. Breakfast was very good too (Continental that is). "I'll be back".

A nice hostel in a good location, close to shopping mall, Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace for those travelling and site-seeing. Staff were friendly and helpful and the place has heaps of character. Beds were extra comfy and the room was nice and big and uber quiet (I stayed in a 21 share) . As it is a smaller hostel, you are assured a good nights sleep here but you'll probably have to head elsewhere if you're looking for a party. I'll definitely come back when I need to chill out :)

Pretty good hostel overall :D facilities are very good: place to wash and dry clothes, excellent chill out room with Wifi and Internet Kiosks, good showers and toilets, great security around the clock and a good continental breakfast. Although the rooms aren't too big and a bit cramped in places, this hostel is a good one and in a handy location for those going on and/ or finishing Contiki tours etc (close to the tube and to Russell Square). Thumbs up!
