Some members of the hotel staff do not speak the local language, portuguese, which is awkward. The bathroom was old and had a permanent, yet subtle bad smell, as if something was leaking or never drying. Room was clean enough, but there were a few (clean) napkins here and there. Price is fine if you check the other hotels in Algarve but certainly overpriced in the overall Portuguese market.

The hotel has a great pool with a funny heart shape. We had a couple of problems with the wifi and the key to open our room door, but staff showed attention to both, although sometimes we had a bit of trouble communication in english. It's within walkable distance to Kamari Beach, markets, restaurants and the bus stop that takes you elsewhere in Santorini.

Good value, decently located in between two metro stations and 10 min walk to a street filled with restaurants. Only real downside was the super unpractical showers that required you to undress in a somewhat common area.

My only real complain is that they should picture the dorm in the images. While I find no trouble, some may find annoying that the beds are actually mattresses lying on the floor. There is no sign pointing that the house is a hostel, which actually makes it more charming. And the patio in the interior is absolutely great. Breakfast could have a little more option (bread, egg and sugar bread), though. Like fruits or something. Way or another, it's a great value for money.

The staff was helpful and rooms were OK. There were some problems with the bathtub since the shower water was slightly stuck inside it's containing bathtub, thus making an undesirable pool on the feet. One of the rooms had an annoying noise of water drops and some subtle bad smell from the toilet. In this same room wifi wouldnt work due to low strength signal. All in all its great value for money, since it provides private rooms in a place so close to Passeig de Gracia.

Had a shared bathroom that was always perfectly clean. Room had decent clean linen lots of light, heater, TV and Radio. Bed was a bit inclined in the middle, like a shell deformation... But was ok. Although previously informed, the lack of even a simple kitchen is a shame. The location is excelent but, since its the party city of Madrid, be aware of possible noise during the night.

Shouldnt expect a fancy thing cause its not. But it was clean, and decent linen. Drawer kinda s****y, though. Lights burnt and had to use reading ones. Not a top location but decent and close to Paris ultra reliable metro system. Most of all, it was cheap. Excelente value for money in an expensive city like Paris.

I really liked all features of the hostel but there are 2 minor things to say: lounge and kitchen area will close at midnight so, if you have to do something on the internet it will have to be in your room. Room mates wont like it much, though. Second is that the locker is just a small box that hardly fitted my medium sized backpack. Aside for this, everything was really great and staff members were helpful and incredibly happy.

Cheesy zebra decoration. 'Good' cause you dont die sufocated and terrible acoustic isolation between the dorms. Showering area is dressing-room style and small. People on the hallway may see half naked ppl showering because door wont shut automatically. Fire alarm turned on without reason at night and staff couldn't turn it off for 45 min+.

As the name says, its not a a hostel. Its a low key hotel. The beds and bathroom were clean but one thing threw my cleanliness rating to the ground: room had cigarette smell. And thats something unforgivable, since if you sleep in a room like that the next morning it will be all over you. Lounge area doesnt exists, only a small and not attractive kitchen.

It's absolutely the nicest hostel I've ever been, regarding architecture and graphic signage. If you're an architecthure student or you simply appreciate decent buildings, get yourself booked here. Breakfast was great, living space also. Location is off-downtown but since Basel is not such a big city, had no issues with that. Can be reach by tram or walking from the train station. Only weird thing is that they dissassembled my bed WHILE I was still checked in.

Great hostel. Dont know about the breakfast since I left too early but they had pasta for dinner in the night I was there! For free. And it wasnt bad pasta at all. Room was quite, as was the bathroom. Lockers are very big and the dorm has an adequate size. Regarding its location... Its just across the street from the main train station. Since I had to get an early morning train, it was just beautiful.

Decent room/bed but light sign from outside restaurant on 'til midnight. Lockers ONLY outside the room. Bathrooms absolutely clean as never before seen! Breakfast had weird pay-per-item mode that was cheaper than a café but more expensive than it should be, in my opinion. Greatly located 5 min walk (with luggage and without hassle) from Koln Hauptbanhof.

The hotel is indeed a hotel and, though booked for a single private, they put me in a twin bed alone. Great, + space. Lady at the desk had a vague knowledge of english but was helpful, though she said I couldn't be able to make a tea in the middle of the night. The room is marked as an ensuite but it actually lacks the toilet. There is only a shower and a sink.

Hostels are for travelers and travelers are aliens that have to or want to contact mother-ship. That's why I get pissed of when I have to pay for WiFi, as in this hostel. It's not a luxury, it's a need. Like water and clean toilets.

When arriving in the hostel I had the impression of entering some kind of whorehouse. Maybe because of the colors, maybe because the front desk is a bar, whatever. The WiFi is free from 8 to 18, exactly the time when nobody is in the hostel. The room was absolutely small for 3 people (I was so glad the third roomate was never in the room, so there was an extra half square meter for me to move). Last but not least, the staff has the french "sympathy" stereotype stamped in their faces and words.

Staff was comprehensive, room was huge, new and with a balcony (!), free and decent WiFi and all that for a fair price. Also the rooms are named after famous composers which is, somehow, a gracious touch to the overall generic feeling of most hostels. The only problem is the distance from the metro but in the future this will be better (I saw that a new station is being built just one or two blocks away from it.)

Good place next to Roma Termini with free wifi, breakfast and 24/7 coffe machine. Also had partnership with a cheap pasta dinner so, if you're short on budget, be sure to get the closest as possible to a all-included with this hostel.

Ariel and the other members of the staff are terrific: polite, ethical and do everything they can to help you. There was some confusion because I booked for a double and got a whole 6 bed "private" dorm only for me and my girlfriend, but with no double bed. The room was so good, clean and well ventilated/lightned that it didn't bothered much. They have bikes for hire, but the U$5/hour are a bit too much for the not so well preserved bikes. Hostel surroundings are great for riding, though.

Good hostel. Stayed in a great & fairly priced double room suite. The staff is absolutely helpful, polite and acts properly (e.g.: the hostel attendant was determined in discovering who left dirty dishes in the kitchen). Cons: breakfast was a bit poor and they charge 2000 CLP for the rent of a decent sized towel. I rented a 1000 CLP small towel and, even though I've paid for that, there was hair in the towl.

The hostel itself and the staff (which seemed to me was just one attendant) are very disorganized. There's nobody to open the front door during the morning (you'll have to wait till 1 pm). Kitchen was very dirty, actually smelling bad. There's hot water but you have to turn the heater on outside the bulding. My room was a bit dirty and dark, with a terrible lamp. The only good thing is that they gave me a private room instead of a shared. Maybe that's a consequence of their own disorganization.

Definitely not an average hostel. It's actually an idiom school that serves Puerto Varas residents with a team of foreign teachers. The whole hostel was very clean, showers were hot (a must in P. Varas!) and room was cousy (besides the cold). It does not offers you a breakfast, but it's very easy to use the kitchen and there's always hot water and tea available. It does not seems like a place to meet people, regarding it's scholar configuration and the small quantitie of guests supported

Spent only 2 nights but those were more than enough to know Andes is a great hostel. It´s a big hostel, meaning it´s a great place to know other people. Bathrooms are fine, water runs hot, dorms have a decent view, good beds and big lockers. Would spent more nights there if there was the availability. The only dissapointment was the poor breakfast.
