Great hostel with good atmosphere and good value for money. Staff were helpful and friendly. Free breakfast which goes on till whatever time you want it! Shame the twin room was bunkbeds but it was still fine.


Hostel Achalay has been like staying with family. The staff are incredible, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the location is great- only a few blocks from the centre of town. It is impecably clean, there are big lockers to keep your stuff, and rooms are far enough from the common area that sleep is achievable (and the beds are super comfy). There are computers available for use and wifi is everywhere. I would come back for sure, in fact, am having trouble leaving!


What a stay !! I highly recommend this hostel, the staff is awesome and you feel like a big family. Full of good advice and the area is beautiful. Must go !


The staff is really friendly and there is a great atmosphere in the hostel. I met some really cool people and will definitely recommend this hostel. There could be more bathrooms but this is a minor inconvenience. Pablo and the rest of the crew was excellent.

Staying at Hostel Achalay felt just list staying at home. What a great place to come back to at the end of a hike, or during the afternoon for a rest! The owner Pablo and all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Homemade breakfast is delicious, beds are super comfortable, and showers are great. The small size of the hostel also means that all the guests are very social. Would definitely recommend a stay here! Thanks for everything, Achalay!

We loved our double room with private bathroom, just perfect. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. We appreciated the freshly-baked bread and homemade jam. We highly recommend this hostel because of the staff, the location and facilities.

Thanks for your review! It was our pleassure to be your host... Happy Travelling :-)


Fantastic staff, extremely nice and helpful.


Very nice place and staff + very helpful. Definitely recommended.


The hostel is quiet and clean and staff are helpful. it is fairly central, if perhaps a couple of steep blocks up the hill so don't drink too much at night!. the kitchen was OK, although the ceiling leaked a little, a minor annoyance more than anything.
