Good location close to bus and train station. Staff are nice and helpful, and the bar downstairs is always lively. The bathroom in the room was always clean, though plugs by the beds and lockers would be a good addition. The guests are a bit of a mix - not all travellers - but all nice and I had no problem with this. I would stay again if I was in Cork.

We had a fantastic stay here! The hostel is in a great location in the centre, between all the main attractions. The rooms were well-equipped and comfortable, with big lockers and power outlets for each bed. The staff are amazing and make sure everyone has a great time. We would definitely stay again!

Large, lively hostel in the centre of town. Perhaps a little too large for solo travellers to get to know people easily. Although each room has a keycard lock system, lockers in the rooms, even small ones for valuables, would be nice. Not really enough bathrooms per floor, there was always a line. Overall a decent stay though.

Hostel is in a good location close to the centre, and had a great roof terrace for socialising with other travellers. Reception staff are nice but the barmaid is a little moody. Rooms are large and comfortable, but lockers would be nice. I would stay again.

Hostel is in a good location a short walk from the bus station and close to the lake and supermarket. Rooms are brand new, clean and comfortable, and each bed has a plug socket. Staff are really nice and helpful, and have negotiated discounts at local bars and restaurants for guests. I would stay again.

17th Aug 2015

Hostel is in a good location in the centre of the city. Rooms are fairly large and beds are comfortable. Although the hostel was full, it always felt empty and soulless, and it wasn't a great place to meet other travellers - so solo travellers may wish to stay somewhere smaller and more intimate.

Fun, sociable hostel in the centre of town with nightly events for socialising. Staff are friendly and helpful, and you can book tours to places like Niagara from reception. Only problem I had was that my mattress had seen better days and was a little uncomfortable, but I enjoyed my stay and would stay again.

1st Jul 2015

I had a fantastic time here, and lost count of how many days I extended my stay! Thank you to Guillermo and Daniel for being such amazing hosts! The hostel has an amazing roof terrace with great sunset views, a party atmosphere and is close to the beach and the bars. It's impossible to have a bad time here. Only improvement I can suggest is providing fans for the top bunks in the dorms as it can get a bit sweaty, but despite this I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Puerto Vallarta.

Hostel Hospedarte Chapultepec, Guadalajara, Mexico
7.4
30th Jun 2015

Hostel is in a nice neighbourhood close to the bars and restaurants, and a short bus ride to the attractions downtown. Hostel has a nice garden area, and plugs at each of the beds, but facilities felt a bit worn out and in need of updating. Lockers are provided, but someone had been robbed while I was there - while I don't think this was the hostels fault as the laptop had been left out, perhaps additional measures could be taken to prevent unauthorised access to the dorms. Would stay again.

Hi! Thanks for your comments! At Hospedarte Chapultepec we are always looking to improve so our guests can have the best experience. We are glad to hear that you had a good time staying with us. We already did some general upgradings to the hostel, including some changes at the dorms windows to ensure that this isoleted event never happens again. Hope to see you again at Hospedarte Chapultepec! - Hospedarte Chapultepec Manager

Hostel is in a good location a block or two from all the main attractions in Puebla. Rooms are clean, modern and comfortable, and breakfast was nice. Not many people staying when I was there, so it felt a bit dead. Overall I would stay again if I happened to be in Puebla.

31st Jan 2015

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.

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 bar area was nice, and the kitchen was well equipped. Tours can be booked via the front desk. Overall I enjoyed my stay.

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.

Hostal Rural, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

10th Jul 2014

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.

29th May 2014

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!

Unbelievable !! How can you write a comment like this when you stayed only one night at the hostel ? The hostel has 2 years so can´t be tyred. The hostel vibe is really nice , backpackers from all around the world all the time arrive to the hostel, this makes a beautiful atmosfhere. About the cat 3 months old we had, he is not here anymore because of you my friend. Please guys see other comments, this guy is so silly.

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.

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.
