Louvre Youth Hostel

Paris, France

Not a great hostel. Only had to do one night waiting for a flight, but I wouldn't go back. The rooms and beds were run down, the showers weren't great, reading light didn't work in my bed, only one outlet by the door in a room for 10, wifi cost money, no lockers in room. The one-key system for the entire room is silly. And a 9:30 checkout is pretty early if the hostel is designed for young backpackers. However the location was incredible, right next to The Louvre and the breakfast was great.

As we pretend : an amazing location closed to LOUVRE MUSEUM, a full early free breakfast and a simple, basic, youth hostel where you will find just the necessary : open 24h non stop, bunk-beds, 5 floors, no lift, no kitchen, no bar, no alcohol, facilities to share on the floor, lockers for 2 €, internet since 0.80 €, or for free in our bar at the corner of the street,

Sant Jordi Sagrada Familia

Barcelona, Spain

Great hostel. I stayed here in 2011 and they have kept their standard high. Clean rooms, bathrooms and showers. Rooms a bit tight, but comfortable beds with reading light and power outlet. Lockers in fit big bags. Wi-fi worked in the room as well. Common area is large with seats and free computers. Kitchen facilities work well with 3 separate stove tops and a large oven. This place has everything you need in a hostel, but the location is a bit out of the way.

Fabrizzio Guesthouse

Madrid, Spain

Location was incredible, directly overlooking Plaza Mayor. Beds were clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were alright. One was better than the other, which was quite cramped. Kitchen was fine, we were able to cook a dinner for ourselves and the owner joined us for a glass of wine. Map was provided and the wi-fi worked well everywhere. Only suggestion would be to have security lockers. If not for the big bags than at least for things such as passports, laptops and camera.

Equity Point Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco

The most beautiful hostel I have ever stayed in. An incredible riad in the centre of the Medina with a pool, plenty of seating to relax and an amazing rooftop terrace with views of the city. Room was a bit tight in an 8 bed dorm and an ensuite. Mattresses were concave, but it was fine. Staff were helpful. Location was easy after you found your way there once. Directions on the hostel's website were great, just one main street and a u-turn. Would stay again for sure, nicer than a hotel.

Tangier Melting Pot Hostel

Tangier, Morocco

No other option in Tangier, but the hostel is fine. Location is difficult to find at first, as in any Medina, but once you find it (use the Hotel Continental as a landmark) you won't have any more problems. All the locals in the area are friendly, they simply just want 10-20 Durhams to show you to your destination or a tour of the Medina. You can say no. Hostel is a bit run down, but the staff were very nice, the roof terrace is beautiful and bathrooms/showers are clean enough. Good hostel.


Massive hostel with a lot of rooms. Too many beds in a room with only one en-suite bathroom. Roof terrace is beautiful with reasonably priced drinks. Hostel is very big, not ideal for solo or pair travelers. Ideal for large groups who want to party. In a very cool part of town and easy to walk to the cathedral and main streets. Not my favourite style of hostel, but a fine place to stay. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Beds were fine. Planned activities each night.

Garden House Hostel

Porto, Portugal

Fantastic hostel. Very comfortable and in a beautiful building. Beds are nice with reading lights and large lockers for bag storage. Bathrooms are clean with plenty of toilets and showers for the entire floor. Wi-fi worked in my room even though they said it was only in the lounge. Great common areas inside and in the garden to meet people. Kitchen facilities were fine, able to cook my own meals. Location is easy to locate and at most a 20 minute walk to wherever you need to go. Would go back

Five Elements Hostel Frankfurt

Frankfurt, Germany

Great hostel, one of my favourites in Europe. Rooms are clean and spacious with lockers for large bags. Bathrooms are separate and clean, but not enough showers and the one was overflowing. Lounge areas are fantastic with cheap pints and free pool and table football. Very easy to meet new people and wi-fi throughout the building worked well. Would definitely stay here again. Area of town wasn't as bad as people say. Sketchy people on the street but no one bothers you if you keep to yourself.

Yes! Lisbon Hostel

Lisbon, Portugal

The location was perfect making all areas of town easily walkable. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. They cooked 10 euro dinners every night with 3 drinks included, which is a fair deal and easy way to meet other people. Lounge area was comfortable.


I had an extremely positive experience at this hostel. The owner, Luis, was fantastic and very accommodating of my unique situation where I was waiting for a package to arrive. He has studied hostels around the world and created an experience that includes everything one needs to enjoy international travel. Rooftop terrace is beautiful and perfect for meeting other travelers. Cooking facilities, comfortable beds, lockers, etc. I plan on staying here again and would highly recommend for anyone.

High Street Hostel

Edinburgh, Scotland

Had a fantastic stay and was really impressed with the hostel. Only complaint I noticed when researching the hostel was no power outlets in the room, but there was one outlet in my room, one in the hall, and plenty available to leave behind the desk in reception. Definitely was not an issue. They cleaned the beds and replaced the sheets/pillows every day, even though I was staying 3 nights. Absolutely nothing wrong with this hostel. Would happily stay again and recommend to others.
