  • Barcelona is a blast and Kabul is a great starting point of the night! The staff is very friendly and host plenty of events for guests. The atmosphere and amount of travelers made it easy to make friends. The rooms were a bit tight but not unlike other bigger hostels. And great security lockers that fit you're entire bag!

  • Perfect spot, rooms are clean, big enough. The magnetic card opens floor, room and locker and you can charge your phone in the locker (perfect security). Staff is friendly and welcomming. Bathroom is clean, wild open, hot shower and bin in the girl toilets ;) Too bad that the roof top closes so early and the breakfast is kind of light. But I will recommand Kabul Hostel with any doubts!

  • The elevator to the 6th floor was a little uncooperative on the last day of our stay. The door wouldn't open.

  • Good free breakfast and dinner, great location, and great security lockers! Bar and pub crawl was a lot of fun too!!! Staff unknowledgable but nothing that ruined our plans, and it's probably the slowest check-in process ever, so don't make plans thinking it'll be a swift process! Other than that loved the stay!!

  • The location is great! And the staff as well. Unfortunatelly our room was pretty poor (no window or small lamp, very loud AC that leaked on my head during the night, no real air :-), I wouldn't recommend that for longer stay that one night (we slept at 5th floor at dorm for 6).

  • Great location, less than average hostel. It took almost two hours to check in. Two people were sitting behind the desk during the check in process, but only one was working. The other was just on the computer being cranky. The rooms were tiny and the bathrooms were in pretty poor condition. The mattresses were hard and AC didn't work one night. During check out, some people were given an extra thirty minutes and others were not. There wasn't much consistency between staff members. Party hostel.

  • This was one of our favorite hostels during our interrail in Europe! Perfect location and just an amazing atmosphere, we had a great time here much thanks to the pub crawl and the people living here!

  • Great hostel in a good location, not too far from everything. It's a definite party hostel but makes it easy to meet other travelers. The only down side was no kitchen. However, they do serve free dinner every night which was a plus. I would definitely stay here again.
