Marlon's House Puno

Puno, Peru

Really nice hostel - perfect if you're looking for somewhere peaceful where you can just chill out and watch a movie. The dorms are literally just hotel rooms with 4 beds in so you've got plenty of space. The en-suite bathroom is very clean and we found that the hot water was reasonably reliable. The kitchen area could be better though, there is a staff only kitchen downstairs which I think hostel guests should be able to use. Overall a good, clean hostel which is good value for money.

Wild Rover Backpackers

La Paz, Bolivia

Great party hostel in the centre of La Paz. Good bar and nice food available all day. The showers and toilets are cleaned very regularly too and the place has a nice vibe. However I found a few of the bar staff to be really rude and often they were too drunk at the end of the night and start shouting at guests to leave the bar. Overall though this is a great hostel for La Paz and I'd definitely recommend it for a couple of nights.

Pirwa Hostel La Paz

La Paz, Bolivia

We found this hostel to be fine for a couple of quiet nights in La Paz ahead of our Death Road trip. I'd recommend it if you want a good nights sleep(the beds are amazing) however there isn't too much else on offer. There wasn't really any atmosphere, there weren't enough power outlets in the dorms, the toilets constantly ran out of toilet paper and the hot water was pretty much non-existent. Overall not bad but there are definitely better places in La Paz for the same price.

The Beehive Sucre

Sucre, Bolivia

Beautiful hostel in the heart of Sucre. This place feels like a home away from home whilst travelling. The staff are lovely, the breakfast is amazing and the place itself is a beautiful building with a big garden (complete with hammocks) The fresh baked cakes and Pilates classes are also a huge bonus! Would definitely recommend :)

Hostal Los Salares

Tupiza, Bolivia

The hostel itself was nice, clean and good value for money. The tour was fantastic! Our guides were Jorge and Gloria who were excellent! Both were knowledgeable, friendly, safe and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the trip as much as possible. Gloria's food is also AMAZING!! Would definitely recommend! :)

7 Duendes

Salta, Argentina

Pretty average hostel. Quite clean. Staff are nice. No atmosphere.

Aji Verde Hostel San Pedro de Atacama

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Good hostel, fairly clean (for the desert)!) with a cool garden area with a ping pong table and hammocks! The hostel is really chilled too although I felt like there was a bit of a division between the guests and the people working there - I think the owner could probably do more to help with integration between guests and helpers. All in all though a good place to stay for a good price.

Hostal El Arbol

La Serena, Chile

Beautiful hostel, one of the best we've stayed at on our whole trip. The owner has created a lovely welcoming and relaxing environment. Exceptionally clean and excellent facilities. Breakfast is also very good - eggs, fruit, home-made jams etc. Perfect for travellers who would like to relax and feel at home for a couple of days. Thank you so much for a lovely stay :)

Casa Verde Limon

Valparaiso, Chile

Beautiful hostel in the heart of a beautiful city. The hostel is very clean (cleanest toilet and kitchen I've seen in S.A) and the kitchen is well equipped. It's excellent value for money too. The only one thing we found to be slightly annoying was the 11pm curfew, which the staff do implement strictly. I think this should be extended to at least midnight or an alternative common room area should be available. Despite this we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend :)

Lagares Hostel

Mendoza, Argentina

Excellent hostel! The staff are really friendly and helpful and they create a lovely, welcoming atmosphere for guests. Really clean, safe and all the facilities you need. Couldn't recommend this place more :)

The Ritz by Hostel Inn

Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Ritz is ok for what you pay, very basic. There is no wifi in the bedrooms and the kitchen is absolutely tiny making it impossible for you to cook for yourself. The breakfast is very basic (croissants and bread rolls only) The staff are ok. However Juan is excellent and he'll go out of his way to help you and make your stay more pleasant. The location is also excellent, very central. Overall, good if you're looking to save money- however you could probably find better places.

Welcome Surf Hostel

Ilha Grande, Brazil

This is a strange one. We enjoyed our stay at the hostel however the building infrastructure isn't to the best standard. My bed for example had nails sticking out next to it. The breakfast is ok although very basic compared to others we've had. The staff are very nice although it is clear that the hostel is just starting up so maybe there's room for improvement moving forward. Overall though a nice, cheaper alternative during your stay in Ilha Grande :)

Backpackers House Paraty

Paraty, Brazil

Really nice hostel! Excellent breakfast, clean, hot showers good facilities. The owner really goes out of his way to make everyone feel welcome at the hostel creating a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, he offers great food nights and extras that long-term travellers will appreciate.

America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Good hostel.

Tah! Hostel

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Good hostel.

Rio Soul Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Really enjoyed our stay at the Rio Soul. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The bathrooms (ladies) were the cleanest I've seen in South America. The location is good too - right next to the metro. Breakfast is good too! The only downsides would be the bedrooms are too cramped (no space for backpacks so you have to hike over them to get to your bed) and also the kitchen facilities weren't the best- you're probably better eating out in one of the restaurants nearby.

Mambembe Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

One of the best hostels we've came across on our travels, the perfect choice when heading to Rio! The hostel is safe, clean with a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere. The staff are excellent and always happy to help. Thanks for a great stay :)

Cambie Hostel - Gastown

Vancouver, Canada

Great hostel!!

Q4 Hotel

New York, USA

Really nice hostel. Clean and good location. The only thing I would change are the washroom facilities. Personally as a girl travelling alone, I didn't like having to take a shower in a tiny room with nowhere to put your things, with a door that you can't even close and you can pretty much see through the glass. Definitely needs to be changed. Apart from that would definitely recommend it.
