Amsterdam Hostel Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands
8.3
6th Sep 2014

Amsterdam Hostel Centre is a tiny hostel with a B&B type feel. It's in a very central location just off the Leidseplein, surrounded by cheap touristy restaurants. After staying in some large informal hostels that felt like high schools, I actually quite liked it - it's minimal, clean, cheap, and the staff are nice. Main issue: there is no air con, so the windows have to be left open. This means you'll be kept awake by street noise until at least 3am most nights.

Stayokay Amsterdam Vondelpark, Amsterdam, Netherlands
7.1
3rd Sep 2014

Stayokay is a very large, sociable hostel with a somewhat clinical, 1960s college building feel to it. Breakfast was pretty good and the staff were great. Issues: no wifi except specifically near reception, rooms feel like they haven't been renovated in decades (yellowing), padlocks for lockers must be purchased not rented.. Overall the place felt 10-20% overpriced.

Hostel Uppelink Ghent, Gent, Belgium
10.0
1st Sep 2014

Uppelink Hostel is one of the most attractive hostels I've ever stayed in and located in the prettiest 500m² of Gent. It's in an historical building that was previously a restaurant (amongst other things). The staff were quite friendly and especially helpful when someone in the building stole my iPhone - they were able to check the CCTV and find the perpetrator! The only criticisms I can think of: (1) no air-conditioning, (2) lots of street noise, (3) poor wifi connection on ground floor.

Keystone House Kings Cross, London, England
8.3
23rd Feb 2013

Keystone's is in an excellent location right next to King's Cross, easy access to basically anywhere in London and just about walking distance from Camden or Soho (if the weather is pleasant). It is very clinical and brightly lit, so while it feels clean, it has no atmosphere or character, either. The morning breakfast is perfectly fine. My only complaint is that I had booked a room for 3 persons and on arrival one of the beds turned out to be a double, so two lads had to share a bed..

Hi there, Keystone indeed has a great central location and is easily accessible from anywhere in London or UK. It's always great to get good quality feedback like yours especially in regards to the character. We put a new sofa in the TV area to make guest's feel more homely ;) As for the triple room, I suggest next time you call to/when you book so we can allocate the room that has 3 single bed. Of course it's subject to availability.

Center Ramblas, Barcelona, Spain
5.0
8th Oct 2011

Good location, although there are many hostels in the area and a few more towards the east side of the Ramblas/Gothic quarter, which is better for night life. Staff did the bare minimum. Rooms didn't smell too great and if you're on a bunk bed it's very easy to bang your head on the ceiling. Free PC's are available but there's only 4 (with one of which broken) so you'll never get on one unless you queue for 20+ minutes. This is one of the cheapest hostels in the area, but for a reason.

Kabul Party Hostel Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain
7.7
5th Oct 2011

Excellent location and most rooms boast great views over the plaza. The staff were quite rude and unfriendly, making you feel like you were a burden on them. One guy organised events which was cool but he seemed only especially friendly towards young females (conveniently). A good hostel to meet people although the atmosphere is a bit adolescent.

BackHome Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
9.3
26th Jun 2011

Backhome felt clean and safe without feeling clinical. The rooms were spotless. The location is perfect and walking distance from Chinatown. Great cheap food is available all around the area. One problem I would mention is that in the rooms facing the road --and there may be only one or two rooms facing the road-- is that the traffic noise is quite high. Other than that, exceptional hostel experience.
