Bad experience. Mustafa was at reception when we arrived at 1pm but that was the only time we saw him. He gave no info about the riad and no map. The riad is beautiful but the towels were wet, the room was freezing, the heater and internet didn't work, and there was nobody in the riad to ask for help. Mustafa was unwilling to give us anything for breakfast because we had a flight at 9am - not even a banana. If you have guests paying to stay, you need to be present and helpful. DO NOT recommend.
Little Big House has a spectacular atmosphere and incredibly helpful staff - we wish we could have stayed longer. We asked for a double and were given an entire apartment with a kitchen that had everything we needed to cook. The location is a little difficult if arriving at dark from the bus (stairs from the bus stop are poorly lit). But once you're there, you'll be happy you're in the Old City. Clean, organized and a great community feel. We'll be back!
Guven was an amazing hostel - delicious breakfast, very nice staff, clean, comfortable and with an incredible number of resources to help make the most of your time in Cappadocia. Mustafa came to pick us up at the bus station and was extremely helpful and insightful with our balloon ride (he's a pilot too!) and we reserved our ride knowing that the company we decided on was safe and reliable. Our only regret is not staying longer!
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were super clean, and the breakfast was delicious. The staff was very helpful and the location was perfect - 2 minutes walking to the Aya Sofya and Blue Mosque. Keep up the great work Avrasya!
This was our second stay at Udee and we were happy that it was exactly as we had left it. Unbelievably clean, extremely comfortable beds, lovely staff...it is welcome escape from the heat and noise of the city. We love the location since it's close to the weekend market and outside the touristy areas - you feel much more like a local. The only potential downside is if you're travelling alone, it's not a super social hostel. But for a couple or friends travelling together, it's perfect!!
Loud, late night music from the bar + early morning garbage trucks + stuffy rooms requiring open windows = no sleep. The apartment set up sounds great, but the facilities don't accommodate the needs of 30+ people. 2 toilets and 2 showers is simply not enough. The "extra" toilet in the stairwell is shared by multiple floors and is often occupied. The kitchen is tiny: a 4-burner stove, a full size fridge and mini-fridge for 30+ people?? We met people who'd had bedbug issues. Will not be returning.
We stayed at Oaklands for 10 days and quickly felt like it was 'home.' The staff were extremely helpful and had answers to all our questions for getting started with our Working Holiday visas. The kitchen facilities were fantastic and we always had burners available when we needed them. Fun community environment in a nice area of Auckland - we'll be back!
We were initially worried about being so far from the main center, but the location proved to be fantastic! Udee's in the heart of the 'real' Bangkok - there weren't any other tourists in sight! Amazing street food, cheap prices, and close to the Skytrain, airports, and train station. In the end, it's really well connected. The hostel was extremely clean and well-kept. The staff & resources were very helpful. It was peaceful & quiet and a welcome escape from the craziness of the city! Thank you!
The 4 guys that run this hostel are incredible and do just about everything to help make your stay memorable. Rajika is unavoidable, as are late-night conversations. Will definitely be back!! The only criticism is that the bathrooms in the 10-bed dorm need some sort of ventilation - it's hot & sticky. But I gladly overlooked the steamy bathroom for all the other perks that come with this hostel. Great work boys!!
I stayed in a double room with a shared bathroom. The air conditioning didn't work, and the only window in the room was a skylight. At 10pm the room was still blistering hot and we had no way to cool it down. The room and bathroom have slanted ceilings so you can't stand up straight while showering or when you're next to the bed. It was not comfortable and not worth 35 euro as you can find private accomodations (with a kitchen) for less. Staff was just okay, not very informative or helpful.
Fantastic hospitality and great facilities. Residence Rooms was very comfortable and I felt like I was at home. I LOVED the Tunnel Tour, it gave a very personal connection to the history of Sarajevo. The only down side is that it's on a small street which has numerous pubs - it's very loud outside at night until about 3am. If you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs, or just go join the crowd downstairs. All in all a fantastic hostel experience!!
The kitchen facilities were excellent, and it was great to be near the bus station so you can take day trips but it's a long walk to town, 25 minutes taking the short route. The staff was friendly and helpful with questions about Zadar, but Ness (owner) seemed like she needed a holiday. No complaints really other than than the price. This is not a 25€/night hostel. Compared to other cities in Croatia, which have much more to see and do, no hostel in Zadar should cost 25€ for a dorm bed.
