Wild Rover Cusco is very clean, well located and well staffed. Every room has an en suite, which is nice. The atmosphere at the bar isn't quite as good as other party hostels I have been at, though, and due to the layout there is a lot of noise from the bar in most bedrooms.
This hostel looks nice at a glance, but on closer inspection fails to impress. It has a large pool, and the bedrooms are bright and clean. However, (deranged parrot aside) the pool is filled with floating insects and does not seem to have a filter. There were also bed bugs in my room, I woke up after 5 hours with >100 bites. Go elsewhere.
Ah, the Wild Rover. Maybe the most fun hostel in South America? The food is top notch, the bar is loads of fun, and the managers are great guys. Beds are comfortable, there are events to keep you entertained every evening, and the receptionists are helpful too. I had a far better time here in la Paz than when I moved to Loki, and will be straight back if I ever return to the city.
Excellent hostel! Though it is not too far from the bus station, it is right on the outskirts of town - don't do what I did, and turn up at midnight without the map (which they send you after you book). The rooms were good, the hostel was nice and relaxed. Only downside is that the bar closes quite early, due to surrounding residents. The staff are extremely helpful, and you can book a trip to do any of the activities available in the town right from reception.
This hostel was very rough around the edges. The 10 bed dorm only had 5 lockers, 2 of which had been ripped off the hinges. The receptionist feigned ignorance and then let me put my valuables into the not-so-secure storage area. The kitchen is very small, and the bathroom had a broken lock, shower head ripped off the wall. The common area was nicely decorated, and the place had a reasonable atmosphere.
Amazing hostel! Great bar, the poolside area is nice, and the rooms are spacious and clean.
Nice hostel, decent food and free wine. However, a large amount of money got stolen from my bag when I left it out of my locker for a couple of hours one day, and given who was in the room, I think it could only have been one of the cleaning staff. Thus unfortunately I won't have great memories of this place.
I stayed here at a quiet time of year, so there wasn't much of an atmosphere in the common area. The hostel had clean, spacious rooms, and the food was pretty good too. Julia was an excellent host, and was very helpful whenever we wanted to book activities or get other information.
Spacious, clean hostel with the most comfortable beds in the world. There is a dinner provided every evening if you like, in the fun communal area out behind the main building. Gaston, the owner, was a lot of fun, and very helpful for getting information about the stuff to do locally. If you are visiting Puerto Madryn, you need to stay at Hi Patagonia!
Nice little hostel, they have surf boards for rental if you fancy taking the short walk down to the beach. They also arrange lessons on request.
Great little place. It was a quiet week when I stayed, so I can't comment on the usual atmosphere, but the owner was very accommodating and helpful. I also got a free room upgrade, which I was delighted with. The place is fairly centrally located, lots of restaurants/bars/other amenities close by.
Relaxed but fun hostel. I stayed here over a week and it'll definitely be my first choice if I return to Buenos Aires. There's a great roof terrace, spacious enough rooms, and the staff are all great. Federico was extremely knowledgeable, and knew absolutely everything that was going on in Buenos Aires. Stay in this hostel and find out about all of the cool spots!
Ahh, Milhouse. Less hostel, more strict institutionalised fun. The people it attracts tend to be very nice and sociable, though the in-house parties each evening have a very awkward-school-disco-with-pants-music feel to them. They have the awful squeaky metal bunks! The staff were quite helpful, and the recommended club nights were worth checking out. Though, it seemed a bit much that you get your wrist grabbed at the door after checking out so they can cut off your band. Or was that just me?
Pretty cool hostel, nice big rooms with high ceilings and lots of room to move around. The pool is also a nice touch, and the staff are very willing to help with queries. The only downside was the under bed lockers, they weren't very secure and could be accessed by simply moving a bed and going around the back.
Spacious rooms, high ceilings, polite staff. Great hostel, I'd come back!
Very clean place, with spacious bright rooms. The bar/pool area is gorgeous, though the breakfast is a bit lacking. The staff were very helpful, especially Lincon, even on the topic of non day trips. They were able to inform us about all the options of everything there was to do locally. This is definitely the best place to stay on the Brazilian side of the falls!
Nice hostel, if a little cramped. The staff were all very helpful, and the place is located in a very good spot in Vila Madelena, nice and close to lots of good bars and restaurants!
This is one of the coolest hostels I've stayed in! You feel like you've been welcomed into someone's sitting room. Great atmosphere, this place seems to attract a cool and laid-back crowd. The breakfast is by far the best I have seen, a gigantic long table filled with a huge selection of food. The nights when they put on a group dinner option were also all great. And check out the kayaking if you have the time!
There were no lockers in our room, we had to use ones next door in a sometimes-locked dorm. The hostel is at the back of the town (town is small enough that this doesn't really matter). The lady running the place was nice, but we did have to ask a few times before we got basics like pillows and covers sorted. There wasn't a breakfast included - though the hostel was a little cheaper, this made it a little unworthwhile.
Room was very cramped, 6 under-bed lockers facing each other in such a way that only one person could really be accessing theirs at a time. Receptionists were fairly disinterested in what was going on, it was a little disheartening to see how seldom they bothered to answer the phone. Dinners were excellent, but the cocktail bar was never opened.
This place was really big, with a constant stream of travellers checking in and out - maybe not the kind of place to meet other people. The bar's atmosphere was a little lacking. Rooms were very nice, bright and clean and had an en suite.

Clean, spacious room and in an ideal location.
Irina was a welcoming and helpful hostess, thanks for receiving us! The hostel is located very centrally - but can be a bit difficult to find initially, there isn't really a sign for it apart from "hostel" spraypainted in black on a wall outside. If you are coming up from Independence Square, and see an Adidas shop, you are almost there :)

The good: Roof bar is great, as is the ground floor computer/common area. The breakfast buffet is delicious and good value (40 per person for all you can eat). Location & facilities good. The bad: Rooms are a bit dark and dreary, could also do with a fresh lick of paint. The common areas are not properly washed, I wouldn't recommend walking around in your bare feet inside the hostel. Rooms are not made up during your stay, which means reception visits each time you run out of toilet paper.
