I've stayed here before and I will certainly be staying again. This is a superb no frills hostel at an extremely reasonable price in a lovely and overlooked part of London. What's not to like? Highly recommended for anyone who likes something just a little different.

A great hostel, based in an old recycled pub. It's only a short walk from the city centre yet in a surprisingly quiet location. Facilities include a comfortable common room and a self catering kitchen. Recommend - I'll be back!

Marmota Hostel, Innsbruck, Austria
10.0
26th May 2018

Set on the outskirts of Innesbrook (though very easily reachable from the centre and the railway station by tram), the hostel is close to the start of numerous fabulous country walks. We were very pleased with our large en suite room, comfortable bed, excellent breakfast and the friendly, informative staff. We would definitely go again. Highly recommended.

Albergo Panorama, Bologna, Italy

25th May 2018

This is a fantastic place to stay, right in the heart of Old Bologna - and there was indeed a majestic panorama from the window of our large double room! It was very clean and provided one of the best continental breakfast I have eaten in my hostelling experiences. We are already planning to go back for a longer stay next year. Very highly recommended.

A fabulous little hotel in a very quiet street in the heart of Heraklion and very handy for the ferry, the town, the museums and the bus to Knossos. Friendly and informative staff. I am already planning a longer stay. Highly recommended.

SOHO, Athens, Greece

11th May 2018

This is a budget priced hostel. If this bothers you read no further. However there is much to commend and I loved it. An older couple we opted for a private twin and were very pleased with our large room - with a balcony, large bathroom, fridge, air conditioning and TV. Set in a busy cosmopolitan part of Athens, handy for the metro, Parthenon and other sites yet surprisingy quiet at night - with exellent and cheap food very nearby. Im planning to return. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

9th May 2018

A lovely place to stay, handy for both the railway and the many delights of cental Thessalonika. We opted for an on suite twin and were very pleased with our large room - with probably the most comfortable bed that I have had in a hostel! It was surprisingly quiet for such a central location too. We would definitely go back. Highly recommend.

Hostel Mostel, Sofia, Bulgaria

6th May 2018

A great hostel in a characterful old building. It's close to the city centre and its many attractions - though a bit of a trek from the railway station (you can't be close to both in Sofia!) but easily reachable from there by public transport. We opted for a private twin room, a couple of minutes walk away from the main hostel, and were very pleased. There's a friendly, helpful and informative staff too. Highly recommended.

A seemingly custom built, modern hostel, close to the railway station and most of Salzburg's many attractions. Excellent in every way. We had a large and comfortable double room. Cannot be faulted. Highly recommended.

Hotel Du Commerce, Paris, France

1st May 2018

Situated right at the heart of the left bank in a traditional Parisienne building, this hostel not only cannot be bettered for location but positively oozes Gallic character. Many of the city's best known landmarks and cheap food (by any standard but especially for Paris) are within easy walking distance. Friendly helpful staff, reasonable prices and quirky, interesting rooms all add to is charm. Highly recommended. We're going back!

The price clearly indicates this is a no frills basic hostel - and I loved it. The location is superb, in a quiet, leafy, residential area - the loudest sound in the early morning is birdsong! 100 metres away the Thames path offers stunning views of Greenwich across the river - and a pleasant 5 minute walk along this path leads to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel and the DLR. The building a reqisitioned Victorian commercial Hotel, which somehow survived the blitz, is full of character. I'll be back!

A great hostel in a good location, close to the market and a short walk or Metro ride from Vienna's many attractions. A a couple rather older than the average we opted for a private double and were delighted with our spacious modern room. Excellent and reasonably priced breakfasts. Highly recommended

Wow! As a couple somewhat older than the average we opted for a private double and were far from disappointed with our large, comfortable room. As for atmosphere it positively oozed the spirit of an earlier Prague and even of Kafka . Brilliant! Very highly recommended.

For location this hostel just cannot be bettered, situated right next to the Basilica (the bell is turned off at night) in the very heart of Budapest and offering absolutely fabulous views from the window. As a couple rather older than average we opted for a private double room - and got a wonderful appartment. Highly recommended.
