Pride of Paddington, London, England

7th Sep 2013

This is my go-to hostel in London, because it's affordable, superbly located for access to Paddington Station, and provides a complimentary full English breakfast. Definitely worth a visit.

Pfefferbett Hostel, Berlin, Germany
6.6
18th Aug 2012

Having stayed in five of Berlin's top hostels, I wasn't impressed by this one. Some of the staff were great, but when I first arrived during breakfast and bought a croissant, the guy working the cafe refused to heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds even though no one else was waiting for service. There's no guest kitchen here, and the atmosphere feels sterile. They could use some hooks in the rooms so people can hang up their towels. Location is central but hard to find.

This was an amazing little hostel. There are never more than a dozen or so people in the flat at once, so you get to know everyone. There are plenty of freebies (tea, wifi, internet, breakfast of assorted breads, fruit, and cheese). Reception hours are limited (8:30am-1pm), but the owner is always available via a phone in the hostel. Everything about this place feels unique and homey - even the furniture is handmade.

As far as London hostels go, this is a solid choice. It's a bit more expensive than most, but it's clean, safe, and next door to Paddington Station. There's a traditional English pub on the ground floor, and the price includes a free towel and toiletries if you pay a few pounds more for the "Girl's Sanctuary." The complimentary breakfast is fantastic, and you have your choice of full English breakfast, vegetarian breakfast, eggs and toast, etc. However, there's no elevator so don't travel heavy.

This is a great hostel in a wonderful location - the surrounding area is safe and right in the middle of all Athens' greatest sights. The staff was were extremely helpful, especially Walter, who always went out of his way to make guests feel welcome and answer any questions that might have about travel planning in Greece.

Spectacularly clean for Rome, this hostel has a prime location in a grand old bulding with spacious, airy dorms, large security lockers, and a bean bag-ladden common room.

I found this widely recommended hostel to be highly overrated. On the upside, it had a restaurant and a lot of freebies (wifi, tea, breakfast, internet). However, that did not compensate for its many shortcomings. The much lauded breakfast was just cereal and toast. The location was a long way from the center (10-15 minutes by tram, with a 10 minute uphill walk thereafter). Cleanliness standards seemed low (bathroom not cleaned during my 2-night stay, dishes always grimy, etc). No lockers.

Hostel One Paralelo, Barcelona, Spain

18th Apr 2012

One of the best hostels I've ever visited, and by far the best of five I tried in Barcelona. Dorms are clean with sturdy bunks, bedside reading lamps and power outlets, and good-sized lockers. However, the real standout feature of this hostel is the staff, who go out of their way to assist hostellers, whether searching for a bed for a walk-in when HostelOne is full or preparing the free nightly dinner over which guests bond.

Rossio Hostel, Lisbon, Portugal
9.7
3rd Apr 2012

This is a fantastic hostel! Having stayed at over a half-dozen hostels in Lisbon, I can definitely say this is one of the best. The location just off Rossio Square offers easy access to everything, and the dorms are spacious and clean. The staff is wonderful, especially Lydia, the lovely chef who's been with Rossio Hostel since it opened in 2007 and who greets guests each morning with the question "which would you prefer: scrambled eggs and toast or pancakes with chocolate?" Wonderful!!!

Durty Nellys Inn, Amsterdam, Netherlands
6.6
22nd Mar 2012

If you want to be right in the center of the old town with easy access to the Red Light District and Amsterdam Centraal, this place might do. However, it otherwise has few redeeming qualities. Rooms are poorly lite and painted a yellow-green color that takes on an increasingly sickly hue as day turns to night. The bathrooms are cramped (the toilet is so close to the shower that you have to sit sideways on it) and the shower drips continuously. Also, I was the only girl in a 6-bed mixed dorm.

More like a home than a hostel, this is one backpacker joint that really lives up to its reputation. A fully-equipped kitchen, well-tended garden, curtained bunks with plush comforters – what more could a hosteller ask for? Perhaps, loads of free spices, teas, coffee, a widescreen TV rigged with Nintendo, and an affectionately lazy housecat named Joop. Check, check, and check. This place is surprisingly intimate with just 40 beds, and it’s easy to make friends. Highly recommend!

Chicago Getaway Hostel, Chicago, USA

Aside from being well outside of downtown (10 minute walk + 10-15 minute train to city), this was a great place to stay. I was in an 8-bed female dorm with ensuite bathroom and was more than satisfied with the accommodations. The breakfast was average (standard fruit, cereal, and assorted breads and bagels), and they didn't have any city maps, but the wifi was quick, everything was clean, and it wasn't too noisy.
