Park Villa, London, England
9.1
7th Mar 2016

Really enjoyed my stay at Park Villa - staff were helpful and friendly. The location is convinient to Mile End tube which has lots of lines and connections to central London. The immediate area is also convinient with some food options and shops, and the Westfield isn't far either. The kitchen & lounges were small but cosy & that was made up for by the size of the rooms which were modern, very clean & comfortable. Liked all of the bed/room features. Lots of expats, but still a nice atmosphere.

The hostel has a good bar/common area and so felt atmospheric. I liked the style of the beds and the personal shelves, lamps and power points but the floor in the hostel seemed especially hard to keep clean and so made the place feel not so clean. The reception staff has really poor attitudes and were rude, the bar staff were friendlier.

Guilin Central Hostel, Guilin, China

This was by far my favourite hostel during my stay in China. The bar/common area is fresh and modern and the food and drink options were great. The staff were lovely, very professional (always using my name) and friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfortable (the style of the bunks is great, as are the lockers, power points, shelves and personal lights and curtins). The wifi was very reliable and the laundry was free! Fantastic location as well!

Great clean and comfortable hostel in a great location. Parts and aspects of the hostel feel a little dated/worn, but overall rooms and bathrooms are very good. I especially liked the individual shelves, lamps, power outlets and curtins! The common room was nice and relatively social, and the terrace was really lovely too. Staff were very sweet and helpful, and the wifi was solid!

This hostel is a great location with lovely staff and a relaxed, social atmosphere! The room was clean enough, however the bathroom being so small was hard to keep dry and therefore got a little smelly! Still I liked the individual lights and power outlets. Again nice and social hostel and all of the wonderful street eats along the alley were awesome!

The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Wifi was pretty spotty, but the other facilities (pool especially) were excellent! The staff were extremely welcoming and friendly :-) Some small improvements like having bins in the rooms (as well as the bathroom) would be great, and (what I realise are larger improvements like) having lockers and more power points would make it spot on!

This was our second stay recently at Travelers Home and it was just as great as the first! We stayed in a double room this time, which was clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are modern and super clean. Kitchen is great. And the staff were extremely understanding when our flight was delayed nearly a whole day - thanks so much! Location is perfect too!

It was our first time visiting Ukraine, and not knowing any Russian (for Kiev) we were quite nervous. Olga was helpful and tried to make us feel more at ease. The hostel (which is in an apartment building) is in a fantastic location to sights in Kiev, a supermarket and places to eat right nearby as well. The apartment and rooms at clean and tidy, and Olga has created a cosy atmosphere. Thank you for having us!

The hostel wasn't very busy during our stay but it was still a cosy atmosphere. Everything was clean and tidy and there are cool and quirky decorations throughout. It was a convenient location as well. Elvira couldn't have been more considerate and accommodating during our stay - I had injured myself in our previous stop and she always made sure I was comfortable and taking care of myself (which is nice when your away from home - thank you!).

This was our second stay at Vila Veselova, as the first stay it was very clean, tidy and has a comfortable and homey atmosphere. The bunk beds and storage are great, and the staff are nice and helpful. Everything in Ljubljana is so close, as is the hostel, but in a quiet and nice area.

Hostel Bovec, Bovec, Slovenia

20th Sep 2013

We originally booked 5 nights in Bovec but had a change of plan and the staff were accommodating and understanding providing a refund. During our stay there was also a big group of guests that were very rowdy but the staff also made an effort to try to calm them down and spoke to us about it all the next day, which we appreciated. As mentioned the security is lacking, however the bathrooms are new and clean, we just hope these teething problems work out because the hostel has potential.

The hostel was clean and tidy, but quite dated and in need of some updates here and there. Still the hostel is one of the most atmospheric I've been to recently, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was great in the design district but very central. As others have said the room key is odd, but works well enough.

Have stayed at this hostel on several occasions, and it's always clean, tidy and well equipped. The social aspect activities are great because you can be as social as you like or be left to your own devices without being disturbed. Always still manage to get a good sleep even in the bigger dorms - the lights off at a certain time is perfect!

The hostel was in a great area in SLO. It was because it was in this area that despite not having a key for the dorm, it still felt secure. The decor etc was a little dated. The kitchen was good, and the layout to the dining room made it easy to meet other travelers. However, while the staff were nice enough, there were a few occasions where one felt like it was the staff who lived there and that we the guests, were intruding.

The hostel buildings and furniture are a bit dated, but it's mostly tidy and clean and the location and lighthouse more than make up for it! Staff were friendly and helpful, Michael who was on in the afternoons/evenings, was particularly nice. Thanks!

While Akari was very clean some parts of it are in need of a bit of an update. The kitchen and common room while cosy, were a bit cramped. The staff were very friendly and helpful though - information on the area and what to do in Nagasaki was great!

I don't normally like it when people say this sort of thing, but I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this would have to be the best! The hostel is how I would like my house to be furnished, with lovely furniture and gorgeous knick knacks. It is so cleverly designed and laid out, the staff take such good care of it and its always emaculate. The information on Aso throughout is wonderful as is the location. The owners and help staff (Mari) are so, so lovely, and should be incredibly proud!

Liked the location, not the closest to the Old town, but it was a pleasant walk and I enjoyed retreating back to the old town at night. 26 bed female dorm worked quite well, was mostly pleased with comfort and cleanliness (expect some of the bins should have been changed more frequently in the bathroom). Some staff were indifferent at reception, the bar staff were mostly very nice though. The bar itself didn't have the greatest atmosphere though.

Overall the room was clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the belushis bar, and amenities offered - free breakfast was also great. Some front desk staff were mostly helpful and friendly, some were completely indifferent especially when it came to an incident where my wallet had thought to have been stolen within one of the hostel toilets. The bar staff were all very nice.

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at Helmers Inn. Greg was very organised regarding our arrival time at meeting us at the property, he was very friendly, helpful and gave us some great info on the neighborhood. Although not right in the centre of Amsterdam it was always a pleasant walk into the centre, but we mostly enjoyed being able to retreat back and the neighborhood was so nice as well. Our room was clean, cosy and very comfortable, and the bathroom and 'kitchen amenities were great too!
