Latest reviews of Downtown Hostel Backpacker's:The location as well as the cleanliness of the hostel was very good.
However, I was surprised somewhat at the high price for the hostel. Having experienced hostels in various other countries, it seemed rather high. I was also surprised that some guests were free to carry on conversations in loud voices in the common areas long into the night and morning, to the detriment of sleeping guests.Elena from Canada on leisure wrote on 05.08.2010 More reviews...

Downtown Hostel Backpacker's Michael from United Kingdom on a leisure trip wrote on 20.04.2010 2010-04-20:Lounge furniture looked dirty, and suspect that fire precautions do not meet EU requirements. But this didn't stop me enjoying great atmosphere, and staff who went out of their way to make this old man feel welcome!3

Downtown Hostel Backpacker's Mark from UK wrote on 12.02.2008 2008-02-12:The cleanliness and description were accurate. Quality was at the lower end of the scale but this was no five star hotel and cost me £15 a night. Overall i was happy with my experience getting to meet new people and sleeping in a clean bed in an excellent location.3
