Worth every penny. I opted for a 4-bed dorm after a 18 hour bus and coming here for rest and relaxation was perfect. Staff are so friendly and pleased to help you in any way they can by arranging tours and shuttles. The place is so clean! Free cake in the afternoons. Each bed has its own curtains/ light/ fan/ charger. The common area is really nice. Not a party hostel but absolutely amazing if you are in need of a chilled vibe/ good nights sleep!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in in South America. The concept of the hostel is so cool and they've done a really good job with the upcycling! Lorenzo and his family are so welcoming and friendly. The breakfast is amazing too - the mango juice served at breakfast is delicious. The rooms are comfortable and the pool area is so nice for lazy days! Couldn't recommend this place any more. Only recommendations would be to get printed menus at the bar :) thanks for having us Lorenzo!

Hostal Rural, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

The hostel is cool in terms of how it is decorated but there is a lot to be improved on. The hostel is very noisy at night, and there is only one staff at reception. As everyone is trying to book tours this means trying to speak to someone at reception takes ages! Sometimes no running water. It is social and good for tours - tours are more expensive but you can negotiate them down if you find cheaper elsewhere. Generally a friendly atmosphere and in a good location.

You are going to this hostel for the experience of staying in a favela so don't expect comfort or luxury. What you should expect though is a unique experience which you will enjoy if you are open minded. The hostel is in a good location, close to Leme and Copacabana. There are restaurants around in Chapeu Mangueira which are some of the best in Rio. Pablo and Wilma are really welcoming and the common area is great with a lovely view, making it easy to meet people. Breakfast is also really good.

Good hostel, the happy hour is a great way to meet people. It doesn't have a kitchen though and restaurants in the area are very expensive so bear that in mind before booking. Rooms are cleaned daily, really good breakfast. The staff are generally helpful but they would not accommodate me by letting me cancel my last night which was a bit annoying because I was having to leave at 3am to go to the airport.

Really enjoyed my stay. Staff are so lovely and create a really warm and friendly environment for guests. Facilities are good - especially morning yoga and communal breakfast. Lots of additional facilities on offer too, good for solo travellers. Really cheap bar too making it go for socialising. Also they have Wild monkeys in the trees which you can feed at breakfast. I'd definitely recommend this place to others.

Cafe Hostel, Sao Paulo, Brazil

4th Feb 2017

Cafe Hostel is in a great location with lots of restaurants and bars near. The staff were really friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to try and help. They also had good suggestions of things to do. Atmosphere was a little empty at times making it maybe not the best place for solo travellers. I wouldn't say the breakfast is value for money, nor some of the bar prices. Facilities overall were good but wifi would occassionally cut due to storms. All in all, I would stay here again.

It was a great experience to stay in a capsule hotel, i would definitely recommend it to anyone! Great facilities, very modern and the capsule itself is quite a lot of space. The pillows are about as hard as a bag of rice. Towels and sleeping wear and toothbrush/paste included. The one thing which was a bit annoying was that your locker to put all your belongings on was on a different floor to the capsule, and the locker was quite narrow making it difficult to fit a big bag in.

The location is good, near to Tokyo station and a subway on the Keiyo line but in the financial district so not much to do around that area. Was a good hostel with good facilities. The owl at reception was a bit scary but all in all it was a good hostel.

This hostel is great, right in the centre of the action in Shinjuku. Rooms are nice and beds have curtains. Staff are friendly and do great coffee. Floors are seperated into male/ female so is good for showering and getting ready. All in all, a lovely place to hang out.

We met loads of people and had a really fun time here! It's a chain hostel so we knew what to expect. Okay breakfast. The staff were more interested in talking to each other than helping the guests. Cleanliness I'd say was fair, but not great. Good facilities - computers, wi-fi and a bar where we found ourselves most nights. If you want a social place to hang out this is great but quite cliquey also. Have stayed in better hostels in Rio - but overall it was good. Great location - Ipanema :)

The breakfast was AMAZING! :) One of the best in my time in Brazil. The hostel was a little tricky to find, but that being said, Jeri doesn't exactly have lots of road names and signs. The hostel room itself was very clean, and modern. Comfy beds. I don't remember the wi-fi being great but it didn't make a difference as Jeri is paradise! The staff were helpful but had limited English so at times it was difficult to ask questions, but they tried to the best of their ability so we appreciated it:)

24th Jun 2015

We only stayed here for one night, as we flew to Fortaleza so we could get the bus to Jeri the next morning. We arrived late at night, the hostel felt quite far from the airport. The location itself made us feel uncomfortable. Outside our window were lots of groups of people drinking or drunk and we didn't feel that safe. The room itself was minimal. As we only staying for one night the place was functional and gave us a place to rest for the night. I would not, however want to stay here longer!

The hostel was great - airport transfer would recommend for people whose first time it is in Rio! The staff were SO friendly and genuinely made the stay at the hostel so amazing. I was really sad to leave when I went! As were the other travellers in the hostel, as a lone female traveller I made lots of friends. Great socialising and outdoor space. Dorms themselves a little cramped but you're in Rio - you don't need to spend much time in room anyway. Hotel was less than 5 min walk from beach!

Only stayed here for a night but wish we stayed longer! Although the building is small, it is in a great location and right above a bar - good for partying! But if you're trying to sleep it would be a bit loud.

Location is about a 20 minute walk from the square - easy to do during the day but had to get taxis back at night. BBQ on Wednesday was good. Social place and cheap beer. Would recommend to a friend!

Would not stay here longer than three nights but it served its purpose. Good facilities near ie. tram to town and also bike shop next door. Next to a park ideal for lunch. Kitchen facilities were average - had no hob or oven. Other than that we enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam and would recommend the hostel otherwise.
