Great hostel, great atmosphere.... felt part of the family instantly. Hostel owner and staff are like one big family. Meal nights are awesome and quiz nights are a great laugh. Can't recommend this hostel enough...would stay again without a doubt.

Beautiful old building with lots of character however it was very very quiet. No music or any atmosphere at all. Staff were nice when you got to know them but at first was just an awkward check in with hardly any conversation. Good location and pancake breakfast.

Great location, right on the beach and on the doorstep of the farmers market. Great staff and friendly people staying long term in the hostel. In the process of renovating...is going to look great. Only things I would say were that the showers could do with more cleaning and the kitchen needs updating, other than that great hostel.

Thanks for staying, we are a fun hostel in a great location in North Beach, one block away from Chinatown and close to most attractions and public transportation. Hope to see you again in the future! All the best GT Staff

Basically just some dude's house. If you are looking for a bed and a half passable shower then this is the place for you. Bunk beds were ridiculously high (no ladder), showers were filthy. I only stayed here as only hostel available. Experienced travellers will be fine but very far out of town.

We provide everything a backpacker needs for 25/night. We appreciate your input, although it's far from the truth it's letting other backpackers and budget travelers know we are here for them when they need us. We are proud that we are the only Truly Affordable accommodation in the DFW metroplex catering to the BackPackers’ community for the past 9 years. We are very close to a public transport center which allows for an easy access to all major attractions in downtown Dallas or downtown Fort Worth as well as the DFW airport. BTW we gave a ride to you and to 6 other Australians to the Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, and then we dropped you off at the Stockyards for a night at the Rodeo and Billy Bobs Country Dancing Saloon. We heard everyone enjoyed and appreciated that but somehow it’s not mentioned in your comments.. All of our bunk beds have always had ladders and are easy to get in and out off. You had the option of taking a bottom bunk, seems like you chose not to.. Finally, cleanliness is always our priority. Showers are cleaned daily, if you had any issues you could have addressed them with a staff member and it will be taken care of immediately. Either way good luck with your travels and we hope you other comments remain a bit more on the positive side! Ivan Ivanov, Mgr Wild Wild West Backpackers' Guest House

HI - Austin

Austin, USA

Beautiful hotel on the edge of the river. Great staff, great location with cheap easy transport into the city. If you want a relaxing time in a chilled out hostel this is the place. Free pancakes for breakfast, great kitchen and huge tv room and chill out area. Great info about what to do in and around Austin. Didn't bother me but may bother others showers remind me of prison showers could do with updating but recommend this place to anyone.

Probably the dirtiest hostel I have ever stayed at! Dirty showers, dirty rooms, kitchen was poorly equipped and the staff were less than helpful! Although it is located next to the tram into the city the area is not safe to walk around day or night. Left 3 days early as felt unsafe and unhappy. Ruined my trip of new Orleans as didn't feel comfortable there in the slightest.

Brilliant location close to all attractions. Small yet comfy common areas however 16 bed dorm room can be a little hectic first thing in the morning....don't expect to be able to lie in! Love that the hostel controls to lights though means no unwanted lights on at 3am

The New York Loft Hostel

Good location, close to subway around 20 minutes into Manhattan. Breakfast amazing however could do with more bathrooms as queues every morning and the staff aren't very helpful...when I asked about a laundrette (as for some reason this massive hostel doesn't have one!!!) the women on reception didn't have a clue and told me she thought it was around a 20 minute walk when in fact there is one at the end of the road! Would stay here again however as a good hostel with good size rooms.

Great hostel, great location. Easy access to Banff town.... free bus pass is brilliant. Huge fully equipped kitchen and cheap drinks in the bar. Could do with more showers and a bigger lounge area but cannot fault the staff or the character of this place.
