The hostel is actually a home-y, private, furnished apartment with room double-deck beds, and ideal for young, light and budget-conscious travelers / back-packers, staying only for a few days. The owner is very friendly and helpful for all your practical needs. It was even nice of her to do an extra effort of washing my clothes at no extra charge. The only downside is the building has no elevators, and the hostel is in the 5th floor. Also, it can be hard to find since it has no big sign outside.

The 4-Bed Mixed Dorm is too small for comfort. No personal lockers inside the rooms. Very inconvenient to rent extra lockers way downstairs if you are 6 floors up. One good thing there is the great party atmosphere in the bar lobby.
Not a party hostel... Please see my previous review on this hostel, I already did one. Same comments as before.
Not a party hostel. Just a quiet, chillax type of hostel. Maybe hard to meet new friends or other hostel guests, as there are limitations on social areas
Far from the city. You always need to take the ferry, to
Love the personal curtains, reading lights and large cage lockers underneath each bunker beds, which makes it secure for your stuff, and makes it possible for a good night's sleep. While, on the other hand, party atmosphere in social areas and bars downstairs, with large TVs and gaming area, which makes it easier to socialize and meet new people. Great hostel for budget travelers and back-packers. Helpful and friendly staff. Will definitely come back here whenever I'm in Berlin. Thanks!
Great Hostel in Amsterdam! Love the party atmosphere! Will go back here whenever I'm in Amsterdam. Thanks! Cheers!!! :D
Great Hostel by the Beach! Great, friendly, cool staff! Party atmosphere, but a very homey atmosphere as well! Will go back here whenever possible. Thanks! Cheers!!! :D
Simply the BEST HOSTEL by the BEACH in BARCELONA. Many thanks to the Hardworking, Honest, Friendly and Helpful Staff of AMISTAT Beach Hostel (IVI, DAVID, KELLY, JESSICA... did I forget anyone? :) ) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED HOSTEL! It's the BEST I have ever stayed at, compared to others. I Love the BIG and SECURE personal lockers, very environmental-friendly and energy efficient facilities, personal lights, kitchen, common areas for meeting new people,etc. See you next month. I'LL BE BACK with friends.
I love the big personal lockers they provide for each bed/ person. Security for my personal stuff/ bags is very important for me whenever I stay in a Mixed or Group Room with other people. I like that they also have personal reading lights for each person/ bed. Very convenient. However, I don't like their location---far from the city center and that you still need to take the Metro, which adds up to your daily costs. It's very inconvenient. But still, I recommend this BBK Good Hostel in Bilbao.

I'm not happy with the small lockers, sometimes with broken locks, on the 6-Bed mixed room in the NO NAME City Hostel. I have stayed in many hostels already around the world and I can compare. There are better hostels out there that have big, spacious lockers. Security for my personal stuff is important to me. If my single standard, medium size backpack or travel bag cannot fit in the locker, then it's not a good locker for me. I would prefer to stay in another hostel with big, spacious lockers.
I like their big personal lockers for each person/ bed. It's also a good place to party and rest. Their main central patio is a good cozy place to chill-out, read a book and to meet new people. Having a personal light for each bed and private curtains for each bed could have made it even better for them, if they had it though.
Their 8-Bed Mixed Room is kinda crowded if it is fully occupied, and their are no personal reading lights in their beds. It's quite dark and inconvenient if everybody is sleeping already and you come back late in the room. Also, small windows and that there is little ventilation in the room. All kinds of odors can be smelled from shoes while you are sleeping.
I don't like the fact that in their 4-Bed Mixed Room, there was no personal lockers provided for each person/ bed. It's kind of inconvenient to still go out of the room just to secure your bags and other personal stuff in their common locker area. Security for my personal stuff inside my room is very important for me. Other hostels are better, and can offer big spacious lockers for each person inside their rooms.
Good value for money if you just stay for a very short period of time, and you are on a very tight budget. You just have to adjust to their limited facilities. Don't expect much for a "cheap" price. Besides, their 8-Bed Mixed Room is quite small, can be congested, and has only a small window. Ventilation can be difficult, and all kinds of odor from shoes can be smelled while you sleep...
I'm not happy with the small lockers, and small ceilings on the bed, on the 8-Bed mixed room in the Flying Pig Hostel. I have stayed in many hostels already around the world and I can compare. There are better hostels out there that have big, spacious lockers. Security for my personal stuff is important to me. If my single standard, medium size backpack or travel bag cannot fit in the locker, then it's not a good locker for me. I would prefer to stay in another hostel with big, spacious lockers.
