Snuffel Backpacker Hostel

Bruges, Belgium
77%

This is a mixed hostel/bar aimed a bit more at the party backpacking crowd. I stayed in a female dorm and it was clean and comfy. Small but decent kitchen and the common areas were friendly, people interacted which was nice - the bar also provides boardgames. As others have said, the shower situation isn't exactly modern but not a biggie if you're an easygoing traveler. Fine for a couple nights, which is all you need in Bruges. Recommend the bike hire! It's nice cycling outside the town.

Most pleasant hostel, spacious rooms and enough space for people to either relax/party without bothering each other too much. Nice kitchen space, friendly vibe. Would recommend.

The Dictionary, Shoreditch

London, England

Very much a party hostel, especially on a weekend. The common areas aren't so great - very cramped kitchen/dining for the number of people using it, and the courtyard isn't so comfortable for hanging out. Could have been cleaner and have things like loo paper replaced/rubbish bins emptied more often. It is walkable to central London though and if you're into East London's art scene it's quite a good place to see that.

I stayed in a number of hostels in London whilst looking for work/a flat and this was easily the best. Super clean, comfortable, with a nice breakfast included and lots of space to hang out. If after a party hostel this isn't really it, but it's very recommendable for quieter travellers and those seeking a pleasant base. It's a ways out but there are transport links. Bed curtains are a nice touch, the 4-bed dorms are very pleasant and the large dorms surprisingly manageable (but bring earplugs).

Bath YMCA

Bath, England

I'm really can't recommend this hostel to other backpackers, it has a somewhat strange atmosphere with both weekend partygoers and people affiliated with the YMCA long-term. It doesn't have pleasant facilities for hanging out, there's no kitchen (to be fair they do state this) and the wifi was hopeless. The dorm bathrooms got saturated with water everywhere and I doubt the duvet covers had been washed for some time. The price was at the upper end for dorm accommodation - I'd try elsewhere.
