Really great location, the best if I may say. Really nice and clean comfy as well. I have staied in 4 bed room ensuite, which was good, downside the toilet/ shower room was so tiny , you have to squeeze you self in. Bed was good . It has free WiFi in room and refrigerator and tv inside room.

This hostel was my best hostel ever as for the cleanness and comfortable beds. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hostel is sort of hotel rather than hostel, I only staied for one night and I was going to stay more but due to tight plans I couldn’t. The hostel only downsides are it’s a bit far from the city center and it’s lack of atmosphere. Other than that I would recommend this hostel. Finally, no wonder this hostel won a lot of prizes over the years.

I have booked it for night and I’m glad I did. My room was 6 bed mixed but oh boy what a filthy room it was cloths and random stuff are all the ground. I think the people who I shared the room with are living there. They have 24 hrs kitchen in the 2nd floor which is good. Staff are nice and really helpful. They have two types of toilet and showers one is showers by it self and other combined (shower/ toilet) which plus for me. I lid you have a car they have parking but it cost you NZ$25.

You have to be ready for marathon of stairs, it’s really something you have to consider if you are not in a good fit. Staff not so much. Room good . Bathroom and showers are not bad in some way they are cleanish.

Thanks for the review. Yes our lift is currently being replaced, our shiny new one will be ready very soon. Our staff are all more then happy to help guests with their luggage up and down the stairs though. We thoroughly clean and check all our facilities and rooms throughout the day to ensure their clean and tidy for all guests. Hopefully we can welcome you again in the future when our shiny lift is ready! Thanks again, The Attic Team :)

It’s well located latterly in the middle of everything you want to see. In front of the door there are tram stops, less than minute flinders station. The room was quite good clean and Comfy. Bathrooms are clean in most of the time. WiFi only in the reception/ kitchen area, you have to pay to have access if you want it in your room.

Nicely located. Really old old hostel, the carpet is older than me at least. There is only one showers room in the whole dorm as far as I know. Value for money fair staff really helpful. You have to rent your plates and cups for the breakfast for A$10 as a deposit. Bus stop right at the corner. Metro station 5mins walk. Elizabeth quay 10 mins walk. I would recommend this for friends.

Upper bunk it’s hanging in the sky. Clean and comfortable beds. I have rented a towel and it was really dirty. If you are looking for water hose in the restrooms no one has it. Though receptionist said that in the ground floor there’s one, but I didn’t check it out. Overall nice and not bad hostel.

Filthy restrooms. Disgusting and its only two for the whole floor !! And one of them is out of service!! Too expensive and not worth it. The only thing is cool in this hostel is the rooftop to watch sunset which unfortunately it's close 10~20 mins before the full sunsets. Not recommend this

Bonjour, We are very glad that you enjoyed the hostel. Our cleaning staff does every day a strict control in all areas of the hostel, but unfortunately there are sometimes people who don't keep the toilets clean when they use it. Anyway, we will forward your comment to the responsible departments for inquiry. Hope to see you sometime again soon. Alessandro & the GEN Team

Best hostel I've stayed in for my Europe trip. Good value nice beds it's like you are sleeping in your own room . Spacious rooms and bath. I booked for two nights ended up with staying for 4 nights . The only issue is location is kind far from the center of Prague it would take you approximately 20~30 mins to get their by tram. Uber is kind cheep in Prague so if you missed the last tram returning to hostel get an uber for around 2~4 euros. Definitely i would recommend and come again.

It's far from the central area you have to take a train. The train station its only 2 mins away from this hostel . You have to look up for the last train station is going back usually it's around 1:40 am is the last one. The reception has a transportation tickets. It's really clean and comfortable bed. They even give you a towel . Would recommend this to a one who will not have problems with going to the hotel early at night.

Dear Guest, We hope you enjoyed your time in Amsterdam. We are happy to hearyou enjoyed our clean rooms and comfortable beds. Whilst our hotel is not inside the canal ring of Amsterdam, we are located right next to Sloterdijk Station which provides transport links to all parts of the city. You are correct in stating that the trains do stop running during the night, but there is a night bus from Centraal Station that brings you right back to the hotel in around 15 minutes. We hope this did not detract from you enjoying Amsterdam and that you will stay with us again. Best, Your Meininger Team

Nice and clean hostel it's more like hotel rather than hostel acutely. A bit walking distance from the central area where is the people gather. Water in vending machines cost me €2 !!! Breakfast cost about €8 . I would recommend this hostel"hotel" for sure and I would come again in future.

First of all this hostel was my first that they applied Taxation on the balance this never happened to me before through HostelWorld.com. I made by mistake my reservation on the wrong day but they agreed to change to me. Rooms very clean and neat and its A/C rooms. Not much atmosphere feel it like hotel look alike.

1. There is a non spoken kinda of curfew, you've to be back before 11.30pm 2. Mosquitos were the worst I have come a cross of in all of Sri Lanka .. It's like monsters they suck you all night long . Me and one of dorm's mate went to sleep in the rooftop which is felt the same with good breeze. 3. The old man who works at reception was a good with advices and where to go and all that stuff. 4. There was a parking so you could park your Tuk Tuk. 5.Dorm was clean.

Hi M, Thanks for staying with us. Sorry about the curfew interpretation. Yes the gates are closed up at that time for the security of the guests who are inside the premise, but anyone coming in later just have to ring the bell and you are in .... As for mosquitos , we do provide mosquito nets on request. There is also a notice of this in all rooms. Thanks again! Dinesh

The most thing I hate in this hostel is the light off after certain time at night until something between 8-9 am no light at all u have to pee or shower in dark :( other than that is fantastic .. One of my recommend places to stay at Phily .. Enjoy !!
