Reina Madre Hostel, Buenos Aires, Argentina
8.6
5th Apr 2014

The Good: Three blocks from the Metro at either end; one block from a grocery store; Three levels and a terrace – I am a sucker for levels; Socks, the cat; close to downtown; good security; right next to an albuerge transitorio (look it up) if you are so inclined; Did I already say Socks, the cat?; and very friendly staff. Needs improvement: Quite a few homeless camped out on sidewalk in the front; A/C not really functioning; Can get noisy with late night revelry;

Hostel Pisa Tower, Pisa, Italy
9.4
29th Nov 2013

You can actually see the leaning tower of Pisa from out the front door - that's how close this place is to the center. Not to mention the high ceilings, the tiled floors, the cool lounge area, and of course the friendly staff. One drawback - shared bathroom - so you have to be patient and plan your toilette! But all in all, excellent location and well worth the money.

First, the good: Tight security - four locked doors, each with a key; Clean rooms; quiet location. Now the bad: Four locked doors, each with a separate key, which means you cannot checkout and leave the keys behind as directed; The check in office is a 20 minute walk from the rooms; there is no internet access in the rooms so if you are married to the net, this is not the place for you.

Bamber House, Auckland, New Zealand

28th Jun 2013

Beautiful house located in a lovely, residential location, with just about all the amenities (including kitchen facilities) that one could want. Friendly, helpful staff, and lovely location - just about a stones throw away from perhaps the best vista in Auckland - Mt. Eden. What more could one ask for?

YHA National Park Backpackers & Climbing Wall, Tongariro National Park, New Zealand

25th Jun 2013

The problem was not with the friendly and helpful staff, but rather the facility which shows distinct signs of disrepair - the smell of paint and turpentine (?) was overpowering in some areas. Fortunately, we spent most of our time at Tongariro!

View Property Reply

Sorry for the smell. One of our kitchens was closed for 2 weeks to sand down and varnish the 3 big tables in order to get rid of all the carvings that had accumulated on the table tops

Alice Lodge Backpackers, Alice Springs, Australia

15th Jun 2013

You know that stereotype of people congregating around a relaxed Aussie Barbie? Well, it's very real at the Alice Lodge Backpackers! Nice rooms, clean bathrooms, lovely back patio with (you guessed it) a functional Barbie, and a cool open space to hang out. Friendly staff and a short walk away from the city center made this an ideal stay.

Mariana's Petit Hotel, Guatemala City, Guatemala

13th Apr 2013

For an aviation fanatic like me, this home of a retired air force pilot felt like a home away from home. The home itself is lovely - marbled floors and clean rooms - and the staff were extremely helpful. We had a bit of difficulty locating the place since it is in a guarded air force residential area, but once there we enjoyed our stay.

By far, one of the best places I have stayed in during our Central America trip. We had a lovely room overlooking the lake. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean, and the working A/c was a godsend during the sweltering day and night. Excellent value.

Dos Molinos B&B, San Pedro Sula, Honduras

10th Apr 2013

If it were not for helpful next door neighbors, we would have walked right by the B&B - there are no signs to mark this parrot green B&B building. Once in, we we greeted by friendly staff, offered water, and shown to our room. Not much by way of location, but a nice place to spend the evening enroute to Flores, Guatemala. Added plus - free shuttle service to the bus station at 5 AM.

President House Hotel, Tegucigalpa, Honduras

9th Apr 2013

Set up on a swanky, exclusive hill up in the Tegucigalpa suburbs, this is a lovely place with the feel of a Spanish hacienda. We loved the large rooms, tiled bathrooms, and dining rooms. Our only concern was the time and effort it took to find the place - not very accessible.

Hospedaje Dodero, Liberia, Costa Rica
7.4
7th Apr 2013

Basic accommodations that are a bit hard to find - we had to trek back and forth several times from the bus station to find this one. Once there though, the staff were friendly and made us welcome. The room was extremely basic, with a small TV, ed, and oscillating fan which made it possible to sleep through the sweltering night.

We are always happy to email a map with directions if someone would like extra help finding us. We are only one block north of the bus station but sometimes it is not so easy to know which way is north after a few hours on a bus. ;-) Let us know if you need help. Happy travels!
