Our first day at Hostel Smith was a roller-coaster ride of quality fluctuation. Vieille Ville is charming in most parts, but the hostel is located in a rather questionable multiplex--to enter, you have to buzz in and pass through a dark, sketchy hallway. This unfortunate first impression was quickly improved by the friendliness of the staff, who informed us that...

I travelled with my two sons and booked Hostel Smith due to the "family room". The family room is a couple of blocks from the main hostel and you are completely on your own. The room is old, shabby, sheets and bedding are from the 70s decade, you will not sleep well because the room is either stiflingly hot (with...

I've been staying at Hostel Smith. The stay here is really nice and the staff are great. Upon arriving I was greeted very warmly from the very first staff member I met Frank. He explained everything I had available and provided me with the password for the free internet access via my laptop or the hostel available laptops. He also...

Planned to stay 2 or 3 nights. Ended spending over a week here! Very relaxed and friendly place. Great management, friendly staff, good location, awesome price! It's not 5-star amenities, but look what you pay! People of all ages here and very much like a 'family' atmosphere - just join the conversation...! Owner is very helpful in giving directions, advise...

The only redeeming quality this place has is that it's close to everything. Other than that, it sucks. The beds are horrible, the bathrooms are worse. Security is lax to say the least and it's hot. They have no air conditioning, so you have the sleep with the window open. If you have the window open, you will not be...

As a hostel goes everything was supplied as expected. It's a really good price for what you get. Breakfast is toast and coffee which I was a little disappointed by. However this isn't so bad. The gentleman at reception is extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. All the service from the staff is friendly and enthusiastic. I lost my key. Luckily...

We stayed here one night in July 2011. Pros - Close to everything (but a bit far from the train station) . Cons - My sheets were wet and came with little curly hairs on them! It's obviously a party hostel, so if you want a good nights sleep don't stay here, but you should at least expect clean sheets....

We were booked in a 6 bed female dorm. We booked only for a night first coz were apprehensive of the place. But we reached and the place was nice. We had the dorm to ourselves but a girl came just for a night. The rest of the days it was like a private room for the two of us....
