Overall a nice hostel, but room mates seemed to be older guys on business, many were loud and didn't use headphones at night. Took the staff a while to check me in and they couldn't work out how much Hostelworld had taken as a deposit. I booked this hostel because it said they offer arranged airport transport...but they don't, luckily there were some taxi around at 4am, was a bit hard exiting the property as they have many locks on the doors which I had to work out how to open! Good security!

Lovely hostel if you want to stay in a more peaceful, green area of Hangzhou. Pleasant atmosphere and a nice common area. The hostel is hidden behind the main road along a small walking street.

Good hostel to stay in. Bathroom was a bit small, but not really a major issue. Great location. Hostel has a comon room and an outside veranda to relax on.

Great guest house. Rooms are like small attached villas. Good staff who will tell you how to get around the city. Close to the airport (taxi no more than 150 ETB), and close to public transport to get to down town Addis. Highly reccomended. Wi-fi only available in the lounge/common room.

More of a party hostel, with a bar downstairs. Music was played at night. Showers could have been a bit more private. One down point was there were not enough sockets in the room for charging stuff. Overall not bad, but if you want somewhere more peaceful don't stay here.

View Property Reply

Dear guest, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you felt that this was a party hostel, but we are not a party hostel. We try to respect everyone that stays here but when you have numerous guests, there tends to be more noise. We do offer a private room for those wanting a quieter space and more privacy. However, we like to consider our hostel a place for people to relax, have fun and meet others from around the world. Thank you and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Tirana.

Convenient location if coming from Haneda Airport. Shower rooms were plenty. But as for many capsule hostels and hotels the rooms can smelly a bit sweaty with so many people in them, and the inside of the capsule was showing its age, air conditioning didn't work either, so felt a bit stuffy.

Room was cold, staff were unfriendly and not particularly helpful. No towels provided (even for a fee!), so bring your own, but saying that the bathroom was pretty dirty. Hostel building has a traditional feel though, but that's about the only good thing. Really do get what your pay for here.

Not a bad hostel, it was a bit hard to tell sometimes who was staff and who was a guest. Beds have individual curtain, which is needed in a room with so many beds. Clean and great location. Reccomended. One point is the shower room was one big room with no dividers but multiple showers, I'm not sure if the shower room is for individual use or shared use...

10 minutes walk from the metro, a little far out but still in a good location. Very Japanese style of bedroom, very nice and clean. Downside you need to pay 100 Yen for 5 minutes in the shower, so unless you rush you might want to find another hostel similaly priced with free shower facilities!

Excellent place to stay, close to the Old Town yet in a very peaceful part of town. The best staff I have ever encountered, helpful with everything from transportation to itineraries, and always smiling! Price included breakfast, free airport pick-up and an upgrade to a triple room. Would definitely visit again.

Good location and upon first sight a nice hostel, however room was very dirty (floor, beds and bedding). The bathrooms both had blockages and were especially dirty, the staff did nothing to try and resolve this upon being informed. Ok for a night or two if you need cheap accommodation in Guiyang, but there are sure to be better places available.

You can walk to the site from here in about 25 minutes down hill (longer uphill, it's steep!). Bathroom in room was small. Heating was barely working. There is a restaurant with all you can eat food for 6 JOD. Not a bad place for a few nights while saying in Petra.

Thank you dear for writing us review. Kindly note that each room has an electric heater to warm the room whenever you like, and we also serve boiled eggs and cheese for breakfast. We wish you told the receptionist about these notes, he could have helped you :) We hope you enjoyed your time in Jordan.

Cold room, no hot water, showers were not to be found. The decor was extremely outdated and it cost 7 euro for heating. Not a place I would reccommend for any more than one night.

View Property Reply

Dear guest, the toilet and the shower was opposite to your room. As I remember, I showed to you the room & the showers when you came. The shower is only 2 meters from your room. If this is difficult to remember, you have to accept my apologies. Hot Water is provided 24 hours per day, every day. About the heating, our policy is to keep very low the room price, so we do not include extra cost in the final price. Many guests are not used to heating. Athens is not a cold city like others. Winter is so calm. The style of the property is classic. The description of the property informs the customer what is going to be booked.

Very close to Ping Jiang road and other major attractions. All walkable in under 15minutes. Staff were friendly, they all seemed quite young all under 20. The room itself was good, however the bathroom has a glass wall around it with no curtains! So if there is more than than just yourself in the room its not the most convenient bathroom. The hostel looked as if it was an old building with concrete walls that have been decorated to make it look modern, quite nice.

Close to the zoo and close to a bus stop with regular buses to Xihu and other places around the city. The hostel is up a hill off of the main road and the taxi driver had a bit of a problem finding it. But with every taxi driver just ask him to call the hostels number on his phone and then you should get there. Rooms were nice and clean, but the bathroom needed some repair. The owners have 3 large dogs which were free to wonder and some birds. Recomended hostel.

By far the best place to stay in HK . Very close to all transportation links including boats, Metro and buses. Great staff who know what they are doing and know how to run a business. The hostel is located in Chungking mansions which doesn't always get good reviews, but to be honest there is nothing bad about the place. Rooms are fairly small but great value for money and free wi-fi is provided. If you stay here I reccomend you go to Khyber-Pass Mess Club for curry, Block E floor 7.

The staff couldn't find my booking because I told her my surname instead of my first name. Best if you tell then your full name. She was telling me that they had no rooms in the hotel at the price that I booked for. Good hotel for a night or two but quite 'sleazy' and rooms were not the cleanest. Locationwise it is great. Right next to the long distance bus station and the local bus station. Close to a few shopping centers, restaurants and a large supermarket.

Much better hotel than I thought it would be seeing as the price was fairly cheap. Close to the metro and a few bus stops within seconds of the hotel. Although the booking stated shared bathroom, I was given a private one which was great. Room amenities were what you would expect from a good hotel, tv, kettle etc.

A nice place to stay, and close enough to the city center to be able to walk. Staff didn't always seem to know what they were doing and had trouble understanding where we booked our room. Communal bathroom was fine, although our floor only had one shower so when it was free it was best to rush to shower at that moment to avoid having to wait! Room was clean and intact, but no air conditioning, which didn't matter too much since the summer weather in Kunming is quite cool.

A great location just across the street from the old town. If arriving by train the hostel is quite far from the station, best if you find a metered taxi. Only problem with the place was it got a bit loud at night with guests in the communal area, which is situated in the courtyard as you walk in.
