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 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.

Hi there! Thank you for taking your time and writing this kind review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Salzburg despite the late arriving hour. Maybe you arrive at a better time next time you decide to visit Salzburg. Best wishes Your MEININGER Salzburg Team

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.

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.

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.

Big thanks for reviewing your stay, and yay for you loving our free breakkie, and our amiable and professional staff! If you happen to be around Birmingham again, why not book one of our private en-suites for more comfortable beds. Especially if you are travelling with a friend, this will only be a slight price difference than staying in a dormitory :)

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.

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.
