Great crew at the hostel!
One of the best hostels I've stayed in! pro: Great central location, big lockers, comfortable rooms and beds con: Wifi on ship not working (but in reception area off the ship) Some activities e.g. a pub crawl on a Saturday night, would be helpful for single travellers
Bad experience, so I moved after 2 nights. Positive: the location! Very good!! After one year travels the by far most unacceptable beds. The slightest movement and the room is filled with a loud squeaking noise. My 6bed dorm had a matrimonial bed for a couple - they should get a double room! Only 4 lockers for 6 people. No help at reception for e.g. information about the city etc, you are directed to the travel office who desperately try to sell you a tour. The place has no atmosphere.
Very nice and relaxing place a short walk from Cable Beach. Hammocks, nice pool, good bar with happy hour, large airconditioned rooms. To get to the city for party/food etc, you'll need a taxi or your own transportation, as the shuttle bus didn't run most of the time I was there. When booked through hostelworld, I got the room for a much cheaper price than what it would've cost at the hostel. I'd definitely go there again!
pro: very helpful staff, good location, lots of organized party possibilities! good organization at reception! con: hot rooms, wifi on ground floor only, unreliable airport shuttle (was 1 hour late), you have to wear a bracelet identifying you as a backpacker everywhere in B.A.
stayed for 3 nights, and would come back even though the hostel has some drawbacks. positive: funny and very friendly staff at reception, thank you!! free good Wifi (which you need to find any information)! Comfortable beds and good showers! negative: not a single word of English spoken, but conversation works through Google translate at reception computer; overpriced, e.g. the airport transfer service: metered taxi fare is 24, the hostel charges 50.
Stayed in single room for 1 week. Nice relaxing place 10min walk out of town center. Pro: Very comfortable large rooms, regular house with 4 rooms just used as hostel. Friendly staff. Neg: Internet connection too slow to open up any web page or download emails. Very low security (house and room always open).
Quiet and comfortable hostel in San Telmo. No meeting place except a few chairs and tables in front of reception (and a 12sqm room across reception). Don't go here if you travel by yourself, you won't meet other people. The "roof top terrace" is a small terrace on the top floor with a 2m view blocking fence around... Very good wifi around reception, little breakfast. Very relaxing place!
Great fun hostel with winetasting&BBQ, amazing staff took us to a local party 1,5hours out of Montevideo on Saturday night. Rooms very small, no aircon. Very good Wifi! => definitely will come back here!! Highly recommended!!! Only neg: very strict 2pm check-in policy (even if room ready and you arrive at 1:40pm, you'll have to wait to exactly 2pm) Otherwies very great staff!
Positiv: Good common area easy to meet people, good bar with happy hour, Wifi great! => recommended!! Neg: Unflexible staff (don't adhere to 24 hour cancellation policy, e.g. can't reduce your stay from e.g. 5 to 4 days once you've checked in), rooms very small and only small lockers. No power plugs in rooms, laundry overpriced (15EUR for 1 bag, even if only 1kg)
Nice, very quiet, relaxing hostel. No party! Large common sofa area, with kitchen on the 2nd floor like a gallery. Best showers in my 9months of travels! Poor security: dorms in remote aisle behind the kitchen, bathrooms on a different floor => long way through entire hostel between dorms and bathrooms => easy for fellow traveller thieves to know you are gone and be warned before you are back (had stuff stolen in dorm while 5min in the toilet downstairs). good wifi in entire hostel!
very good Wifi everywhere! good location 10min from center. room setup with open sink area (no door!) in the room not good => you'll wake up whenever someone brushes teeth, washes hands etc, very early (9:30am!) end of breakfast and checkout, only one key per room, and you'll get whatever key you want without questions => risk. Very expensive services, e.g. small laundry 45 Arg. pesos (>10 USD)
Friendly owner, very quiet B&B (no hostel type atmosphere), good WIFI!
Good Wifi! Extremly small room, extra charge for more than one shower/day, lights switched off at 12, no power plugs in room. But still a cosy place. Location ok, about 10min walk to center. Friendly owner. No breakfast.
positive: Very helpful and nice staff (esp Walter), great large room with lake view, large common and bar area, 10min walk to city center, good tour recommendations negative: WIFI not working, only 2 computers, dinner won't fill you but Highly recommended!
positive: very nice room with outside terrace, great parties together with other hostels, very friendly staff, good organization WIFI good (bar/recep only, not in room) intense selling of their own tours, weak other info 15min walk to town
positive: Good location: 10min walk to downtown, WIFI good, very friendly helpful staff its a quiet nice hostel, no party hostel. Warmly recommended!
The hostel is NOT close to Zona Rosa!! It's 8km by cab to Zona Rosa! Positive: Very friendly staff, WIFI good, close to supermarket, restaurants, Metro, nice rooftop. Not so good: No fun when I was there. Stayed for New Year's. No New Year's dinner etc in the hostel, bar closed, so went to city center to Pitstop hostel (New Year's dinner, nice pool, bar area etc) to meet others for New Year's eve. Nice if you are looking for quiet and far out from city center. Bad smell in bathroom (private room
Thank you Günther (owner, very helpful and friendly) for a very nice stay!! Highly recommended hostel, esp the BBQs! close to shopping area, bars etc, 15min from the center only negative: WIFI not working in common area, only at reception
good WIFI, large pool afterparties (when everything else is closed in town) Fridays&Saturdays 1am-3am
The hostel does not seem to be operating - it was all dark when I arrived at 6:30pm, the owner opened and was very surprised that I wanted to stay, despite me having the booking confirmation, they did not know about the booking, and did not let me in. So I had to find a different hostel. It is located in the only unsafe area of Huaraz
good WIFI, very helpful staff, thank you! Reliable airport pickup service.
great location! Had part my laundry stolen which I had handed in because laundry was lying openly around in the kitchen after it was ready. Wifi only in common area, but good speed.
Great fun, but one single bathroom (combined toilet+shower) too little, always occupied especially after a party night
