B&B Distrito Condesa

Mexico City, Mexico
29%

It's the 78th place I booked in HW and I haven't received so little value for my money yet. Location is ok, but the bath tub which is the shower was very old and distgustingly dirty. In the bathroom they painted over the tiles with a heavily smelling probably unhealthy varnish or so, which makes a headache. There was a lot of construction noise. No staff at all at night in Mexico City, Condesa is only "comparebly" safe. No window to the outside. A double for 85usd+18%tax? Heavily overpriced!!!

There was a used shaver and some hair in the bathroom of our private room. In Generall very nice hostel which makes party, but not too noisy so you can also sleep.

Very organised and clean place. The couple who are running the place are very helpfull. The hostel is not directly in Flores, you have to take a small boat over the lake to get there. So there is also more sound/noise of animals during the night. One can like or dislike it. It offers for sure a great view.

Hostel Quetzal

Cancun, Mexico
80%

There was no warm water available during the 4 days of my stay. Maybe that has been fixed by now. In Generall a verz nice hostel in which it is extremly easy to meet other people, because of the included breakfast and dinner, which offer rather small rations and the perfect chance to meet other travellers.

It's a nice small guesthouse with very nice and helpfull staff. It's a good option and gets the important things right, but nothing too special either.

NapPark Hostel at Khao San

Bangkok, Thailand
80%

in generall a nice place, near Khao San street, which is unfortunally 6km away from the next skytrain station. The hostel has very nice details, but some basics like hot water in the shower didn't work. The place is more expensive than the average Bangkok hostel,but also better . The toilet door doesn't cover the 10cm at the bottom and the 50cm on top. So if you want a real door at your toilett, that could be a problem for you.

Velkommen Backpackers

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

There were several things which I didn't like about that place: - the bathroom had a very bad smell - the room door was made out of glas, so there was a lot of light in the room at night - it was very noisy at night (room was on ground floor, same as the bar) - no small reading lights - towels were full of brown stains - place seems quite expensive - used toilett paper has to be thrown into a garbage, but that garbage doesn't get emptied every day the postivie thing: excellent location

I didn't like that place. The hostel is huge. On hostelworld they write that there were a parkting, but there isn't. The cleaning of the room changed only the bag of the garbage, the bathroom wasn't cleaned. The wifi is a quite a hassle, you need a 1 hour code and it was quite often difficult to log in.

Hello Peter, thank you for your rating. :) By now, for the missing lockers in this dorm, we offer all guests to give their valuables to the safe at the reception. But I hope on your next trip to Bremen, we will have lockers as well in the 6 bed dorm :) Save travelling Lucia Hoymann

The hostel is very noisy, bathroom facilities look "used" to put it friendly. Nevertheless it is good that there is a hostel in Aarhus. Bring your own sheets, if you can. Renting them will raise the price by 20%.

We had the double room, which is nice. It is a very relaxed place with very kind people. We went there by care and had lots of problems with finding the place. At the end we had to pay a taxi driver to drive ahead of us and show us the way, but he couldnt find the place either without calling the hostel, although we had google maps print outs.

From 2nd - 7th of April "RENOVATION" was taking place in the hostel, so Art-Hostel "APOLOGIES" to all guests who stayed in this period because of the overbooking we had to use the helping rooms for accommodation. We did the renovation of course so our guests can have better facilities and bigger comfort. The hostel in this period was also enlarged with 4 new high-class rooms, and new common area .

Greg & Tom Hostel

very nice hostel with very nice staff... a problem is that there are not enough bathrooms. There was always a long q in the morning and at night. My room was headed eastwards and the curtains neither dark nor big enough. So it was very difficult to sleep in the morning. Nevertheless it is a very good hostel!

in all aspects a very good hostel. The kitchen equipment is especially outstanding: It was the first time that I found such an expensive Tefal pan in a hostel.


The House Hostel

Riga, Latvia
67%

It is a small and cosy hostel without a lot of rules. It is a 20 minute walk from the central bus station outside of the old town. There are no lockers, which I didn't need, because I was the only guest of the hostel and that is the biggest con of the hostel: it is extremly quiet during the week. You can easily get bored, although the staff tried its best to entertain me.


Anker Hostel

The hostel is ok. There were only 4 lockers in my 6 bed dorm. One of them was brocken. There are better hostels in world, but Anker Hostel makes a fair and good offer.


Dublin City Bunkhouse

Dublin, Ireland
73%

The hostel is quite expensive. I paid for a weekend night 39€ in 8 bed dorm. I guess there are cheaper places in Dublin. The room was, including the bathroom, less than 20m² and the hostel took 312euros altogether for the 8 beds. A five star hotel charges probably less per m². I wouldn't recomend the 8 bed ensuites. There was always a long q for the bathroom every morning. Beyond that the hostel gets the important things right, the staff is nice and the breakfast good.

Hostel Estoril

I especially liked the bar on the roof top. A good combination of fun and sleeping hostel. There is a nice bar, but the partying is never too wild or noisy to stop or interrupt the sleep of the guests who want to rest. The staff are all very kind and helpfull. I only didn´t like the mattresses. I slept in three diferent ones and all had hollows from the previous guests.

Andes Hostel

Santiago, Chile

The hostel is more like a hotel which also has dorms. It is very clean and very well organized. It feels so comfortable, that there are a lot of people staying for longer periods (language courses etc.). I wouldn´t call it a party hostel. At night normaly the tv is running at maximum volume. The only thing I didn´t like there were the showers with unadjustable water temperature.


Kona Tau

The owner is an extremly nice guy!! I wouldn\'t have expected such a clean place. There are no lockers in the dorms. Ask for a key to the kitchen, if you have an early toor. I didn\'t know that and was standing in front of a locked kitchen.


YHA Mt Cook

YHA Te Anau

There are no lockers. The staff is very friendly. It was probably the best YHA I\'ve seen in NZ. There are a lot of families and couples in the hostel, so don\'t expect to meet a lot of people, if you\'re travelling on your own.


Tuatara Lodge

Invercargill, New Zealand
67%

The hostel is a bright spot in a depressing town. It is not a good place to stay, as most people are just stopping by here for a day or two. The internet prices are as high as in the internet cafes nearby. There are no free lockers and the kitchen is just unequipped. There is not even salt.


YHA Dunedin

Dunedin, New Zealand

There are no free lockers and not a lot of them. There is only one shower per floor. Besides a typical YHA: clean, excessive internet prices and conservative athmosphere


Base Christchurch

Christchurch, New Zealand
73%

Positive: the location couldn\'t be more central. In general it this hostel is ok. There is an incredible dirty and old carpet lying on the floor, which gives the place a dodgy athmosphere, but the bathrooms are clean, the beds are good and there are free lockers. I absolutly didn\'t like the kitchen, which is horribly equipped. There is not even one 50%-proper pan. This hostel is pretty big, so it is a bad choice for people, who prefer more smaller and more intimate hostels.


YHA Wellington City

Wellington, New Zealand
60%

There are no free lockers. My room was headed to the atrium and it is not possible to open the windows there completely. So it was extremely stuffy in the room. If that is the best hostel in Oceania, then the standard of the top hostels is in Oceania a lot lower than in Europe or Asia.


YHA Auckland International

Auckland, New Zealand
57%

The hostel has a very well equiped kitchen. The rest is ok. I don't like hostels which don't offer free lockers. The staff is not capable of calculating the right prices, ie reduce the 10% prepayment. I and a lot of others got wrong bills.


Beachouse

Coral Coast, Fiji

It is defiantly a good place. But if you want to swim in the sea, it is the wrong place. The sea is less than 1m deep for the first 200m and behind these 200m there are dangerous currents. It is a bit ridiculous why the boxes for the backpacks are not lockable. Some iPods were lost.


Sakura Hostel Asakusa

Tokyo, Japan

A good hostel. I prefer smaller hostels, but Sakura offers everything you need. You can use the computer offline for free and they offer breakfast. A good place to stay.


40%

A place for grandparents. It is clean, but they really charge you 1000Yen, if you miss the 10 o'clock check out by some minutes. The sign outside is in Japanese only. It is hard to meet people there. There are better hostels in Tokyo than these. I also stayed in Sakura and K's and these are better.

I stayed in three hostels in Tokyo. For me that's the best one.

The Korean system of bathroom is that the shower is directly above the toilet. So the toilet is constantly wet. The location is great, but some of the staff are quite repellent. It is not really a great hostel, but it offers everything you need, including free internet and washing.
