Overall a good hostel in a good location. Bathrooms had a bit of a bad smell and the room seemed to shake every time the underground train passed under the building!

Dear Guest, I appreciate your efforts for a description of the hostel where you staying, but I have to mention that the real distance from the center is about 10 minutes. I do not know which part of town you consider as center. No offense, but I can not leave incorrect information. Thank you for visiting. All the best.

Overall an ok hostel. Nice location and friendly staff. Stayed in the 17 bed room. There were some strange people in the room including a rowdy fisherman. Make your own beds. No padlock provided for the lockers and the shower was blocked with hair. If you haven't read if you do no have a YHI membership card you will be charged an extra 50 SEK.

Red Inn Cabana

In a good part of town, in close proximity to restaurants / Georgetown. Rooms were nice but could do with more sockets, however both toilets and showers need desperate repairing and cleaning. Staff not the happiest. Free breakfast but often not enough seats around the 2 tables.

Hostel provided 2 addresses on Hostelworld, both of which had no hostel. This was confirmed by neighbouring shops. Apparently it closed last year. Do not book this hostel.

Can't comment on this hostel. They sent me an e-mail 2 weeks before my stay to inform me that they have had something come up, but they were very helpful and did find another hostel for me and paid the excess in room price.

You need to go in to the apartment buidling to get to it, but not hard to find. In walking distance to attractions and night markets. Bathroom drains need a bit of mainance, but generally fine.

Great hostel, near a busy morning market and very close to the metro station. Nice place to relax downstairs. Highly recommended.

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...


Aizuya Inn

Tokyo, Japan

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.

In a nice part of town, no more than 15 minutes walk to the river side and Palace. Downside was there were numerous, prolonged power cuts #for the 3 days that I was there, not sure it this is a common happening or not.

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.

It really is a 'Retro' hostel! A bit run down and can be loud at night. Bathroom had a cigarettey odor. Staff were very informative and helped a a lot. Location is great, a couple of minutes walk to the Rynek. Good for one or two nights stay in Lviv.

16EUR Hostel

Tallinn, Estonia

Very close to the old town and easily accesable. Restaurants and supermarket nearby. Room very basic (bathroom, bed, chair and a TV), but for a night or two in Tallinn it's a good choice and value for money. They do have a swimming pool and sauna free to guests at certain times in the morning.


Come to Vilnius Hostel

Great hostel located a few mintes from the station and close to the old town. Good facilities (kitchen, bathroom, showers etc). Booked a 4 bed room, but because of low season had the room to myself! Owner Alex extremely helpful with all enquiries and a very bubbly charachter...She makes great pancakes for breakfast too! Would definately reccomend this hostel for people visiting Vilnius.

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.


Farah Hotel

Great location in downtown and near the Citadel and Roman Ampitheather. Room didn't have heating so very cold. Breakfast was bread and jam. Wifi was given to me for free but asked to pay 2 JOD on departure.

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.

Hotel Efesos

Athens, Greece
60%

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.

Owner Comment (Hide)
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.

In a great location off of Zhongshan Road, close to alot of attractions and only a 15 minute or so walk to the coast. Run by a family, so it had more of a household feel to it.

Suzhou Lohas Youth House

Suzhou, China
80%

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.


Hi Inn Taiyuan Street

Shenyang, China

I was at Shenyang North station, from there it is quite far, but from the city center it is in a good position with transport links nearby. Staff helpful with my enquires. The room was ensuite and fairly small. It looked more like an Ikea showroom but still very nice especially for the price!

Very close to the station and neat to where the airport bus departs from. Booked a bed in a 4 bed room, and only had other room mate. Clean and simple rooms, and clean shower rooms.


Emerald Hostel

Hangzhou, China
77%

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.


93%

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.


Xin He Hotel

Zhuhai, China
63%

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.


73%

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.


Buddy's Hostel

Guilin, China

Very near to a few of the cities sights, also very close to the city center which has alot of good eateries! Staff were very friendly and allowed us to have some of our friends join us in the communal area. Very modern, youthful design of hostel. Definately recommended!


63%

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.


87%

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.


Garden Inn

Lijiang, China
87%

A great little place if you want to stay somewhere that has the features of the houses in Lijiang's old town. It's about 10 minutes walk to the central square if you got at it with some speed. The staff were great and managed to get us some tours at much lower prices that we would have got if we had arranged them by ourselfs! Definately recommended!

Really helpful and friendly staff. Near a few main streets so getting a taxi is no problem at all. The room was clean and made up every day for us!
