  1. Going to Dublin Ireland , to take my daughter to school, leaving the end of August, returning after Labor Day. Not interested in a tour group. Since she will be staying for 4 years and I will be returning home alone, we would like to enjoy this trip alone. Open minded. Any suggsstions! We can stay between 7-10 days.

  3. As far as I see, this list is a bit poor…. for ex. in Berlin : room for 2, shower/toilets outside but very clean = less than 30 euros in Berlin city hotel (located on the subway ring); another one : 30 euro as well, for a room+shower+toilets+free wifi, in the funkturm hotel (near ICC)…. like this in 3 days you save one night !

    So, your “super cheapo” ones from 51$ = 41 euro are not that super cheapo !

  6. I have to add Singer 109 to the best hostels of Berlin. It was truly the best experience I’ve had. Nice and easygoing people, amazing light, large rooms (private bathroom), great bar downstairs and amazing breakfast.
