Hostel was not at the same location as reception; We felt unsafe in and around the hostel. No common room or kitchen yet shared bathrooms in a quiet and errie hallway. Not a hostel or a hotel. Felt very threatened. DO NOT STAY stayed June 2014

I walked into my room, at first I thought the red stuff on the wall was a mural, in fact it was some random girls period blood staining my bed and the wall which it was against. I turned to look at my fellow unfortunate travellers in their beds, they were dead. I tried to poke them to wake them... More

We booked a 2-bed room with shared bathroom for 2 nights. It was in an apartment that was 3 blocks away from the hotel's reception. For that price, the place was beyond expectation. Clean and neat room. 8 minutes walk to metro station and surrounded by restaurants and shops. Everything seemed secure.

When my friend & I arrived to Carlito's Way Hostel back in April of 2004 to start our European trip, we were greeted with open arms at the front desk. The staff was super friendly. We actually went out with a few of them and it was fun. They are there to make your stay enjoyable and easy as much... More

We went interrailing and booked all of our hostels/hotels in advance. As we were on a budget (whilst trying to find conveniently located places to stay) we didn't really expect that much from this but when we arrived we were more than pleasantly surprised! You have to check in the sister hotel but that wasn't a problem - they were... More

The staff at the sister hotel where you check in were so friendly and gave us great advice on where to visit. We were shown to our hostel and were pleasantly surprised by our room which was plenty big enough for the two of us. We felt happy leaving our things in the safe when we left the room and... More

When we first chose to book Carlito's way, we only expected our basic requirements to be met. However, the room which we were given simply blew us away. We were given a room on the 3rd floor but luckily the hotel has an elevator that made life much more comfortable. The room itself was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The... More

Very reasonable price and variable level of service and friendliness from the staff. You will be nickeled and dimed every chance they get at this hotel. But, it is clean and the bed is comfortable. It is located one block from the metro. My wife and I had a shared bathroom unit on the top floor. It was a small... More

My partner & I stayed here for one night (which we were gutted about once we'd seen the room!) and it was beautiful! We expected something small & dingey when we booked a 'hostel' & paid a more 'reasonable' price but were delighted when shown our HUGE room with a very large tv, & heaps of space to wander around....

Carlito's Way stands out as the nicest room I've stayed in ever. The standard double room in the hostel with shared bathroom sounds a little grim. In reality it is spacious, beautiful and with a reliable/cheery cleaning service. This is irrelevant to the extremely reasonable price. Though the reception is a small walk away, the service is quick and the... More
