Great location just off Ocean Drive (unless you booked a private room, these can be in apartments elsewhere, but taxis are paid for). Staff are incredible and the atmosphere is fantastic. Free breakfast, lunch and dinner is incredible! I would definitely stay again.
To start - this hostel takes up 2 separate buildings opposite each other - my review is in relation to number 11. The location is excellent, very close to the zocalo, though the area feels pretty dead at night. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the free breakfast is good. Tours can be booked at the desk for those who can't be bothered to do them independently (and much more cheaply!). Maybe it was just the time I was there, but for such a large hostel it felt pretty empty and dull.
Great party hostel. Staff make sure everyone has a good time! Good location close to the bus terminal, supermarket, bus to hotel zone and cheap food market. Rooms are clean and comfortable. No complaints at all, would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Nice roof terrace and bar for meeting people, close to the bars and clubs. Wifi could be improved.
Decent place to stop a night or two while exploring the area. Non-Spanish speakers may have difficulty at reception.
Hostel is in a good location a few blocks from the main square, but for those in the dorm at the front of the hostel the bar across the road can get pretty noisy for anyone wanting an early night. Staff are helpful and loads of tours and transfers can be booked from reception. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.
The cheap headline rate doesn't count some cheeky extras like wifi access and lockers, so it ends up about the same as other, better-rated hostels during a short stay.
Nice large hostel with pool near to shopping mall with food court. Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff are very helpful. Perfect place for a stopover in Managua, would stay again.
Nice sociable hostel, close to town and tours available if you can't be bothered to do them independently. If you're going to Nicaragua from here, note that you do not need an expensive taxi to get to the bus stop as the hostel says - the super cheap local bus gets you there in ample time!
I felt that this hostel was great value for money compared to the other options in Monteverde. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the showers were hot. The staff were really friendly and the free breakfast was fantastic. It was possible to book all of the tours via the front desk, and the hostel is close to everything (because nothing in town is very far!). There is a little noise at night due to the locals' fondness for loud motorbikes, but I suspect this is a problem all over town.
The hostel is located between the old town centre and the bars on Media Luna. The rooms and beds are comfortable, but our dorm had little natural ventilation and it became intolerably hot once the AC was switched off - the TV room has AC on all day but it quickly fills up! The bar area was nice, and the kitchen was well equipped. Tours can be booked via the front desk. Overall I enjoyed my stay.
I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff are awesome and the courtyard pool and bar are fantastic. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hostel is close to the exito supermarket. They let you leave your bags there while you go visit Tayrona National Park or do the lost city trek. The restaurant makes great pizzas. This hostel was recommended to me by a friend and I would happily recommend to others.
The hostel is in a good location, close to the metro station and exito supermarket, and just a 10-15 minute walk from the bars and clubs. The hostel had a good atmosphere and nice communal areas. Tours can be booked via the front desk. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.
I had a great stay here. The hostel is located in a nice part of town, near bars and restaurants and supermarkets. The staff are really welcoming, and offer free salsa lessons. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the free breakfasts are good and varied. Well equipped kitchen. Would recommend to others.
The hostel is near the gold museum and the bars in la Candelaria. The bathrooms have been recently renovated, and the showers are nice :) It's a sociable hostel, and I enjoyed my stay here. Only downside is that it's sometimes difficult to communicate with the staff if your Spanish isn't up to scratch. Overall I would recommend to others.
I had a great stay here. The hostel has a really sociable vibe, helped by the wonderful staff. The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean. Close to all the main attractions in the old town, and the start point for the free walking tour. I was sad to leave!
Nice sociable hostel in a good location near the baths and town centre. Enjoyed my stay here, and would recommend to others.
The hostel is in a good location and is clean and comfortable, but what really makes the place is the staff - they were very helpful in pointing out all the local attractions and recommending agents for Galapagos trips. I had to leave early in the morning before breakfast, so they made me a breakfast to go :) Really nice guys, and I would completely recommend having them look after you while in Guayaquil.
Excellent hostel! Great location on the beach, plus a large pool and bar area. Staff were awesome and there is always a party going on. Food from the bar is nice. I had a great time here, and think you'd be mad to stay anywhere else!
Good sociable hostel. Rooms at the front can be a little noisy though, and could use more bathrooms.
I enjoyed my stay here. The dorms were comfortable, and I liked how each bed had a power socket for charging stuff. The hostel itself is huge and can feel a bit empty at times, and after staying at the Milhouse in BA was a little disappointed that the bar was always deserted. On the plus, the hostel is really close to the bars and clubs around the main square.
I had a great stay here! The bar and staff are amazing, and it's a great place to meet other travellers. The beds were comfortable and there was always hot water. Wifi was sometimes overwhelmed but this is a problem across Peru. Would recommend to others.
Good bar for meeting other travellers, always something going on. Beds were comfortable, but hot water supply was patchy. Close to the main square and possible to book tours through the hostel. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.
The only time I felt warm in Bolivia! Rooms were heated and comfortable, with hot water. Staff were friendly and mine tours can be arranged through them. Roof terrace has great views of the city and mountain. Enjoyed my stay here and would recommend to others.
This is a great place to meet other travellers and is close to the main square. They could do with a few more bathrooms though.
This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in! Pablo and Clarence go out of their way to make sure everyone has a great time - the nightly bonfires make for a very sociable hostel; perfect for solo travellers. The hostel is right in the middle of town, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Tours can be booked via the hostel and are the same price as going direct. It was hard to leave this place and I would happily recommend Hostel Rural to others.
The hostel is close to the town centre, and makes a good base for exploring. The rooms are clean and comfortable, though the place could do with more bathrooms. Lots of common areas and a well-equipped kitchen. The hostel had a good atmosphere when I was there. Oh, and they have a SNES.
A decent base to explore Valparaiso. Great location close to the funicular. Rooms were clean and comfortable, though the place could do with more showers. Common areas are large and kitchen is well-equipped. There wasn't much of an atmosphere when I stayed though this may have been due to the time of year.
The hostel was empty when I was there (for the last 2 days I was the only guest!) but it does have a large communal area. The staff can disappear for hours at a time, but are friendly and helpful. Easter Island is expensive, but I felt that the hostel was particularly so - I knew of others who were paying a lot less at other guest houses for a private room than I was paying for a dorm (this may have been due to it being winter). I did enjoy my stay though.
I had a great time here, and ended up staying longer than expected! The hostel is in the best location - round the corner from the bars and restaurants of Bellavista and close to the city centre. The staff are really nice, which helps contribute to the excellent atmosphere. The hostel is massive, and there are plenty of spaces to chill. Wifi works everywhere. Kitchen is well-equipped. Only downside is that the dorms can get a little cold at night, but duvets are provided. I would stay again.
The hot water supply in the showers was intermittent to say the least, but aside from that a decent base to explore Rio. Bar staff are cool, and breakfast is decent for South America.
The hostel has a good location close to the beach and the metro, however there was no atmosphere in the place at all - the large roof terrace, which would have made an amazing bar, was given over to a camping area (the bar was shoved into the basement). This, combined with the triple deck bunk beds, gave the impression that the hostel was just trying to cram in as many bodies as possible at the expense of the hostel experience. There were not enough bathrooms to cope either. I wouldn't stay agai
I enjoyed my stay here. The location is Central and you can book all of the various tours through the hostel. The breakfast was good by South American standards. Rooms and bathrooms were kept clean. My main criticism is that the lockers available for hire are small and cannot fit a tablet or laptop.
Good location on the beach, but the place was pretty dead when I was there and lacked atmosphere. The facilities are a bit tired, but the main problem is the lack of door on the main dorm, which allowed mosquitoes to flood in (and the hostel cats - I found them sleeping on my bed/clothes on several occasions, which I didn't mind, but it could have been problematic for someone with allergies). Nets provided didn't cover bottom bunks, and had holes (see cats) so I got eaten alive!
Not enough characters to praise this place! Best possible location. Amazing staff. Great atmosphere. Excellent food. Comfortable rooms. I wish I could have stayed longer, and will definitely be back; You'd be mad to stay anywhere else.
This is a great hostel. As per the other reviews it feels more like a boutique hotel. The dorms are spacious, and the beds are really comfortable. The pool and bar area are great, and the breakfast is good by South American standards. The staff are very friendly and helpful (definitely go for the home made pizza night!). The hostel itself is just round the corner from the bus station, from where you can easily get to both sides of the falls, and also close to the town centre. Stay here!
The hostel wasn't very busy when I was there, and there wasn't much of an atmosphere, but I'm sure it's fun around the pool and bar when busier. The hostel itself was clean and comfortable, and is close to the centre. If I was in asuncion again I'd stay here.
Wish I could have stayed here longer! The staff are amazing, and make sure that there is always something going on, day or night. As a result there is a great atmosphere at all times, even when the hostel isn't very busy. The hostel itself is clean and comfortable, and conveniently located halfway between the bus terminal and the city centre. I'd definitely stay again and would recommend to others.
When we went there at the end of the season the place was pretty empty, but I can imagine that when it's busier it has a good atmosphere, with a large open plan communal area with pool table. All of the facilities seem brand new (comfortable beds!) though more bathrooms would be ideal. The hostel is a short walk from the historic centre and makes a good base to explore Montevideo. I'd stay again if I was in town.

The hostel is walking distance from both the ferry/bus terminal and the town centre. The communal areas are good, though our dorm was a little on the small side. There's always someone at the desk who can help out, and even though we were there at the end of the season and the place was fairly empty there was still a good, chilled, atmosphere. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others.
I really enjoyed my stay here. It's a very sociable hostel and easy to meet people at the free wine happy hour. You can sort out a large number of tours via the hostel, and the staff are really helpful. Some of the facilities were a bit dated (my mattress had certainly seen better days!) but I noticed that they seem to be in the middle of a refurbishment so hopefully this won't be an issue going forward. I'd happily stay here again and would recommend the place to others.
The hostel makes a decent base to explore Salta and the surrounding area.
Great time staying here - good atmosphere and the (friendly) staff have tons of stuff organised day and night - fantastic if you're travelling alone. The dorms and bathrooms are kept to a high standard of cleanliness and the place is locked down like Fort Knox. Given the reputation as a party hostel they do a pretty good job of keeping things quiet late at night, but I'd probably not recommend staying unless you're planning on partying! I'd recommend to others and would stay again.
