Old Town Hostel

Tbilisi, Georgia
100%

Good hostel is defined by great location near all main sights (check), friendly and helpful staff (check), is clean and have comfortable beds (check), but there is much more in this place than those things. Mix of staff, their local friends, long term visitors and fellow travellers made me to experience Tbilisi and local culture in way only long term residents could. Be ready to overstay for some time.

The location is perfect and hostel is clean. The staff might not be very friendly or knowledgable, but they always tried their best. There is just one toilet and bathroom, which might cause problems when the hostel is full (16 ppl).

This place is just amazing. Considerable small to know all ppl easily, well run, clean (I really mean CLEAN), free events every afternoon, staff is great and place feels so luxurious for being "just" hostel, heck they even make your bed every day. If they have free bed, dont look any longer.

It is more like hotel/hostel hybrid with majority of rooms being private, so it might be quite hard to meet other travellers from time to time. Other than that the place is amazing, it was open just few months ago so everything feels new, facilities are superb and staff is very nice. You also get free breakfast as well.

Well run bed factory with predictable level of service, good if you are group or maybe couple, not very good for solo travelers as there is no place to meet others, except of open to public bar downstairs. Internet is available only at the bar, cmon it is 2012, even cheap guesthouses in the middle of Cambodia offer it nowadays.

Thanks again for passing on your feedback - any additional Suggestions are greatly appreciated. Best to you and kind Regards from St. Christophers Berlin.

Hostel Mitte

Brno, Czech Republic

The place is quite ok, the price is quite high for Czech Republic, but there are very few other options in this city so you have no choice. The room are spacious and clean. The breakfast is better than traditional toast and jam. There are no window blinds so the room is really really bright in the morning, there are also too much noise coming from the coffee shop downstairs so you will not be able to sleep long. They should also invest little money for better pillows, current sux big time.

Dear David, thank you for your comment and raiting. Sorry about the noise from the coffee shop, they close at midnight and open from 8am so during this time there is busy. So as a kind of compensation we offer 10% discount for everything from the coffe shop. Regards Marketa

It is decent place, but nothing special. Receptionist was nice and helpful, but she keep being in her room all days longs so it feels like you disturbing her when you need something. The cleanliness is another problem, the floors are more or less clean, but when you look in bathroom around the sink you find a tons of rat excrements. In conclusion: the hostel feels laid back, but also very amateurish for price you have to pay.

Oh my god... I am very sorry to hear that. Actually I thought you are enjoying your stay, as you even wanted to extend for another two days. I really thought you appreciate all the information, our several small chats and that we stored your luggage for free. After check out I even offered to you to come over at any time when you need some more ideas where to go. I am very proud and happy of being there for our guests and providing them with all necessary and helpful information. So, I am very very sorry for giving you this feeling of not being welcome.

Typical big bed factory. Everything is well run, but very anonymous and lacking any character, not really good place to meet people. Superb showers, especially if you get a bit sick of all those wet toilets around asia. Internet is rather unreliable and you have to keep typing some random username and password.

I stayed here for five days, three in the dorm and then private room. Hostel is located in fairly posh area of Phnom Penh, which is safe and provide many bars and restaurant nearby. Hostel dorm rooms are very basic, but the beds are quite wide, private rooms are very nice. Internet is blazing fast and rock solid all day. Best part of this hostel is the staff which is super nice and helpful. Dont miss the restaurant, it is quite pricey but the food is superb.

This place is become kind of my home. I spent 30 nights during few visits past two months. The place is everything you can expect from hostel: clean, comfortable, well run with more then helpful staff. The only downside is that you get so spoiled to enjoy staying in other hostels. During many years of my travel I slept in lots and lots of places, but this is one of my favorite.

Plan to stay 2 nights, stayed 5. It is really nice place to just chill out and do nothing. Rooms are basic, but nothing to complain about. The best thing is there is some cake/cookies/tart all day provided for free. I stayed in 3 bedroom dorm and it can get very noisy in the morning, due to the street close by.

The Tour is another highlight of the stay, make sure you don't miss it.

Staff try to make this hostel really good, but they are still quite amateurish. It is good place for decent price, but be ready to find some roadblock. Do NOT buy the launch from the hostel. It costs 5EUR meat menu or 7EUR fish menu. I don't recommend 10 bed dorm room: the room is also use as luggage storage so you will be disturbed all the time by people coming in and out and is also used as a laundry room and staff make laundry even around midnight.

Dear sir, thank you kindly for your comments. Our 5 euro full menus (soup, salad and main meal included ) are approximately 1/3 or even ΒΌ of normal price in city of Kotor. It is decent meal with huge quantity - for ultimate gastronomic experience we recommend another restaurant where u pay 20 to 30 eur for full menu. 10 bed dorm is equipped with 2 brand new bathrooms and air-conditioning .We believe at 10 eur price for bed, fact that washing machine is within one of these bathrooms is not problem. We never wash after 10 PM - if some guests used it on their own without management knowledge in order to avoid payment, we sincerely apologize .
