This was the second time I have stayed at Kangaroo-Stop and it hadn't changed a bit. It's not super fancy, but who needs that when you have a comfortable bed, a well stocked kitchen and a comfy lounge room!
Was sold on the "best pasta in Rome!" It wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best! Don't be tricked! The friendliness of people working here leads you to overlook the lack of actual lockers (it's just a lockable chest of drawers) and the total of two bathrooms for maybe 20-30 people.
Best hostel I've stayed in in Paris, and I've stayed in 3 others. Not a single bed bug, friendly staff, fast Wifi, great location.
The only flaw was the fact that the notice that we needed to pay extra when we changed wasn't removed, and we had to argue that we had at 7am when we checked out, other than that it was perfect. Make sure you check out the city bike stands, it costs a euro to sign up, and then it's pretty much free, as long as you don't ride for more than an hour at a time! Well worth it!
Based on the reviews I thought it would be terrible, but it wasn't. It's about what you'd get for the same amount of money if you were staying in London. So don't be too put off by the bad reviews if you're used to somewhat budget accommodation.
It was quite quiet when I was there, but it made for a good sleep.
I wish all hostels were this great. I highly recommend it, if only for the helpful staff, but the hostel itself is wonderful.
Nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about. Just a good, basic hostel.
the lockers were rather flimsy, but were big enough to store everything. it's right between the old city centre and the jewish quarter, so really convenient to walk everywhere.
great hostel, man at the desk was really friendly, i think the bad reviews are based on his manner as a non-native English speaker.
It was pretty good, except when they didn't realise I'd paid, and charged my credit card for the first night, but that was merely an inconvenience because they quickly rectified it.
It was a bit of a walk to the old town, and there wasn't any cheap food close by when I arrived late sunday, but it's an exemplary hostel, for sure.
I only stayed one night, but weirdly you have to put a deposit to borrow some cooking gear, which is mighty inconvenient if you just want a cup of tea!
Wurzburg is a bit sleepy, but the hostel is great.
The drains of the showers were a bit smelly, but I'm sure that's more to do with the fact it's winter and there's not many people staying! It was a really nice, relaxed hostel, and the beds were comfy too! It's located within 10 minutes walk of just about anything you could possibly want to see in Weimar.
The kitchen was a kettle and a microwave, but the dorms were very clean, and it was an enjoyable stay.
The lockers in our room had no keys, so I had to put my valuables in the safe. It was kind of inconvenient to have to ask the staff any time I wanted to use my laptop, but apart from that, there was nothing else wrong with the hostel!
It is almost soul-less. Mostly groups or families stay there, and there's not much opportunity for people to get to know each other. However, the room was nice, and there were plenty of places to sit, even though there was no kitchen.
It is about a two hour walk from the city centre, or a 2.80€, 20min metro trip each way, so the bargain prices aren't such a bargain after all. The kitchen was well equipped, and it was a nice place to relax in the evenings, but it does lose points for its location.
Lockers are in the basement, instead of in the room, which is inconvenient. But the fact is that it's a very well priced hostel for its location: perfect if you're in transit for one night as I was.
Great kitchen, the dorm and toilets stunk, but it was really cheap. So if you don't mind an olfactory assault, don't worry.
The common room that wasn't the bar was a dimly lit area that wasn't very pleasant, and the cage under my bed wouldn't pull out because it was blocked by the adjacent bed, so it was very hard to get things in and out. Other than that it was fine.
I had a great time at the hostel, BUT the owner's dog bit me (unprovoked), and he didn't ask if I was alright, or apologise. The owner also treated his staff very poorly, and yelled at them in front of us. It was not pleasant. That being said, the staff were great, facilitating drinking games and taking us out on the weekend.
My bed wasn't very comfortable, but the kitchen was well stocked, and breakfast was good too. The guy who checked me in at night was incredibly friendly, and that was great.
It was about an hour's walk to any attraction, but it was nice to be able to wander down to the supermarket and pick up some cheap food.
The friendliest hostel you'd ever visit. Don't bother going anywhere else. They have free food or drink every night, the stuff are friendly and helpful as well.
A typical stark HI hostel. Pretty good facilities though and a great location. Not too far from the main bus/train station or the old town.
Beautifully decorated, sparkling clean, friendly hosts and overall a delightful experience. I highly recommend visiting.
The hostel was in a good position, but it was very dark, and just an apartment. But you get what you pay for.
Really great. Clean, comfortable and conveniently near the bus station. Without a doubt, I would stay here again, and I highly recommend it.
Great hostel, really comfy beds, cosy and clean. Friendly staff too. I highly recommend it.
My room stank of mould. There were noisy drunken boys who were annoying on the Saturday night. I was actually supposed at how bad the hostel was. There are many nicer hostels in Madrid. I recommend staying elsewhere.
I had a really great time in Granada, which was due to the friendliness of the staff. Not only are they polite and helpful, they took me out with them when they went out for beer and tapas, and offered me some of their lunch when I happened to be around the hostel at that time. I would highly recommend staying here. It's not a flashy hostel, but cosy, friendly and better than a hostel that you remain anonymous in.
Everything was great, the lockers are drawers under the bed which are massive and really easy to access stuff in. The only problem was there was only one bathroom for 12 people, and the shower and toilet were in the same room, leaving a long wait in the morning. The bathroom also smelled a bit mouldy.
Another great oasis hostel. Consistent quality chain.
Only one gas burner in the kitchen worked, there was no where to sit when eating food that you had prepared yourself, the heater in the room didn't work, the shower leaked all over the bathroom floor. I was disappointed.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in, from the very start. Not only did they sit down and show you exactly what I needed to know on a map, but they were kind enough to help me deal with the airport and get my luggage delivered. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
They were great, and the kitchen was equipped really well!
Don't come here if you are after a good night's sleep. Although the hostel says that they do their best to curb noise, the fact is that everyone is there to party, which is all well and good if you're just going to spend the next day on your tour bus sleeping it off, but when you have a hike to go on the next day, being woken up by each of the 8 people in your room as they come in is not welcomed.
Way out of the city. And buses only come every one or 2 hours on a Sunday. But the rooms were clean, but austere. Breakfast bread was slightly stale.
The showers were slightly weird in the big dorm. There was no locks on the doors. But everything else was ok.

No common room. People were hanging out in whatever possible space to use the free wifi. One couch isn't enough.
