Small hostel away from the center of the village in what looks like the middle of an oasis. There's a cozy garden (hammock included!) that does miracles after a tiring day at Machu Picchu, the soundtrack of the little stream makes it perfect. Inside there are big beds, large lockers and a clean bathroom. Staff is helpful even though they don't speak English very well. There's not really anything wrong with this hostel, the only remark that I could give is that is was a bit dull during my stay.

Supertramp Hostel, Machu Picchu, Peru

The receptionist (I think his name was Pablo) must have broken the world record the longest check-in ever. I must have taken more than 30 minutes before he showed me my bed. Apart from that little mishap, Supertramp hostel was a good place to stay in this touristic village. Good vibe with some interesting people. Plus you can write on the wall, which always gets my support. Many (big) beds in small rooms and most lockers were broken. No place to keep your clothes dry in the shower cabin.

As many other people have written, this hostel is only good when you need to catch an early flight the next day. Dodgy area, so I didn't bother going out. I didn't meet any other travelers in the hostel simply because there were none. Very weird experience! Staff was nice and helpful and they arrange private transport to the airport which was convenient.

Motel like accommodation that is located right next to the bar. I stayed there on a Saturday so the music was full on until 2AM, meaning that I couldn't get to sleep until then, which was annoying since I had a plane to catch at 9AM. Apart from that, I wouldn't recommend this place for solo travelers who want to meet other people due to the lack of atmosphere and (decent) common room. Unique to this hostel is the free meal in the bar but you'll want to pay the extra $4 to get a decent sized meal

Hi, Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it. We just wanted to let you know that we do have common areas. In fact, we have a big social balcony with tables & couches and a nice TV rooms with a massive lounge. We have now put signs in the motel rooms to make sure all guests are aware of these features. Concerning the music from the bar, we notice all our guests about it on the Hostelworld website, in the confirmation email and again at check in on the registration card we make you sign. We are fully aware of the noise coming from the pub, hence why we make sure that all our guests know about it before hand. Still, we are truly sorry you had a bad night of sleep. Enjoy the rest of your travels :) The Jack Team

Extraordinary hostel, excellent for meeting other travelers. The staff made my stay in Cairns so much better! The vibe is really laid back and there even is a nice little pool in which you just can float and relax. I slept in a 3 bed dorm, it was snug but luckily there were no snorers! If you're in Cairns and you're backpacking, this is the place where you belong.

They should give these kind of places a different name. It is definitely not a hostel! There is no atmosphere at all so certainly not a good place to meet other travelers. Instead, it is a massive hotel near all other premium hotels. Beds are very shaky. Apart fro that, rooms are large and clean. Not recommended for solo travelers.

View Property Reply

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review Bounce Sydney. We appreciate all of your feedback. It's a shame to hear that you did not enjoy the atmosphere during your stay here. Usually we hear quite the opposite from our guests! We host a variety of weekly events in our communal areas including the rooftop terrace which is said to be a good place for meeting fellow travellers... In saying that, the atmosphere does cary (as in most places) due to circumstances such as weather & depending how busy we are so perhaps you had unlucky timing :( Sorry about that! Thanks again for your time and for your nice comments about our rooms. We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels in Aus. Cheers

Excellent little hostel. Great for solo travelers! Wifi isn't great which is a good thing because people talk to each other instead! The owner is really helpful. Facitilities and accommodation aren't super modern but more than good enough.

Not really a place for backpackers. During my stay I saw a few entire families, 2 schools and even a number of retired people. The rooftop terrace is simply boring, they could do so much more with it if they want to. Apart from the hotel like feel, this place is clean and location is excellent. Directions on how to get there could be better.

A quite large hostel that has everything you need. Great breakfast and the facilities are excellent, location is not perfect but it's a 15 minute walk to the center (take an hour if you want to go the Vasa museum by foot). The conditions weren't really there to encourage people to talk to each other and hang out, instead people in the rather uncosy (and way too large) common room were fiddling with their smart phones. Pity, this could've been a great hostel!

Excellent hostel in Ilha Grande's main village. Hidden away from the center of the village on a gentle slope, this hostel is very spacious and cozy with some comfortable hammocks! Staff isn't the greatest but this is compensated by its unique location and atmosphere. Dorms are very clean and the beds are fairly comfortable, breakfast is as you would expect in Brazil.

Location is excellent, right in the heart of the city nearby the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. Bathrooms and rooms are clean, albeit not very spacious. Rooftop bar is an asset with nicely decorated furniture. Breakfast is more than average. Once ranked the best hostel in the world, I wouldn't think that is still the case but it still is quite good, with an excellent value for money.

Family run hostel in Göreme inside an actual rock. Nice and small place with friendly personnel, gladly helping you out for activities such as balloon rides, ATV tours and bike rental. Good location (2min walk from the bus station) and good facilities. Rooms are inside the rock, which makes it refreshlingly cool.

The owner of the place was lovely (in a Turkish manner of course!) and very helpful. Location is excellent, within a 2 minute walk from the Sultahnamet tram station in the center of the city. Rooms were good with clean bathrooms, there were only too many people for only one bathroom (10:1). Rooftop lounge was relaxing with free tea 24/7.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. It's just amazing what they have to offer: spacious rooms, fantastic location, the nicest staff, clean bathrooms, many day trips, and it's all still relatively cheap. Although everything is practically the same in both wings, I prefer the east wing as the house in the east wing has a bit mroe character.

If I had to describe this hostel in one word, it would be RELAX. The staff is really nice and helpful (George is the man!), the location is excellent (5 minute walk to the big square) although it looks a bit dodgy with street dogs and gipsies occassionally walking by. There aren't many rooms in this hostel, which makes it interesting to meet other people. Dorms and bathrooms are very clean to Romanian standards. If you go to Bucharest, do not hesitate and go to the Doors hostel.

This is by far the worst hostel experience I've ever had. The name of this place is quite misleading: - It is not meant for backpackers - It is not a villa - It is certainly not a hostel The place is full of South-Koreans who barely speak English so meeting other people was pretty much impossible. The atmosphere wasn't good either.

Excellent location in the middle of the fanciest street of the city with a 'place-m'as-tu vu' spirit! Although there are many rooms in the hostel, the place on itself is quite small (few bathrooms either). Staff was not that friendly but helpful if you insisted. I would recommend going there for the facilities and the location but not so much for hanging out there.

Probably one of the best hostels in New York. Although situated in Queens, there is a subway 50m that has a good connection to Manhattan. 24/7 reception is a plus, (female) staff was friendly (but not the friendliness you get in European hostels). Rooms are small but you don't really want to stay in your hostel room in New York don't you? Bunk beds were quite wobbly, each movement from the guy above me felt like an earthquake. Bathroom in each room was very spacious and clean.

The female staff was friendly and gave suggestions for sightseeing in Boston. Although the location is horrible (the street could be the scene of a horror movie at night), there is a shuttle every 30 minutes to the subway station. The hostel advertises for having a bar but it isn't really. Although there were many people in the common room, everyone just sat there looking at their computer screen which made it a fairly dull place. Dorms were small (but sufficient), not enough bathrooms.

Not the place for backpackers, difficult to meet other travelers (because of the diversity of people: many hipsters and many middle-aged people).

Disregarding the high price, the hostel was nicely decorated in a cool building, the rooms were very spacious and the bathroom was very clean. I had expected a better breakfast.

I can understand why this hostel has received so many awards. Fantastic place to stay at: the staff is kind and multilingual. The bar is a very good place to meet other travelers and the bartender joined the conversations, which was really nice. I have stayed in both 6 bed dorms and 3 bed dorms (with my own balcony!!), and I felt very comfortable in both rooms. The only downside was that the 3 bed dorms didn't have its own bathroom. The shared bathroom didn't allow much privacy.

I wouldn't call this place a hostel, it's more like sharing an appartment with your sister - that does all your work - which is really nice. I immediately felt at home in this astonishing place. Can't get any better, apart from cooling the rooms during hot summer months. Besides that, myMOjOvie will probably be better than your own place.

A unique place to stay, just 20 meters from the Soca river. You shouldn't go there for the accomodation (cleanliness is something to work on). The personnel is very kind. Lots of activities too, although it's pretty expensive (consider others). Wheels are recommended, because this place is situated somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
