Makako Chill Out Hostel

Cartagena, Colombia

For the price I paid, it was not the best place to stay. The music that they played in the common area didn't help with the atmosphere of the hostel. Not sure if it was necessary to blast club music in the common area until close to midnight when most people were trying to sleep or just relax in the lounge. Although it wasn't the hostel's fault, there was a club a few buildings away that was blasting music well after midnight. If you're looking for somewhere quiet, this is not the place to be.


Great place to stay. The rooftop terrace was the spot to be to socialize, relax, and cook a meal. It has a very well equpped kitchen!. There are many lounging areas spread out through the hostel so if the rooftop gets too hot during the afternoon, you can easily find another place to relax. The location of the hostel is idea as it is located in front of a sports complex with a pool, free gym, soccer and basketball courts. The downstairs shop has everything you need, cheap beers! Amazing!

Casa Miraflores

Cali, Colombia

As soon as i walked into the hostel, i knew i would really like this place. And i wasn't wrong. In the many years of traveling and staying in hostels through hostel world, i can't remember the last time I gave a 100% rating at a hostel. It had such a great vibe with such a relaxing atmosphere. Very clean rooms, amazing staff and volunteers members, very safe area with a neighborhood security guard walking around the streets at night. Now i have a reason to go back to Cali!!

Sunshine Quito Hostal

Quito, Ecuador

Great place to stay in Quito! Just a few minutes from the historic area and also very close to the trolebus bus stop hermano miguel. The central market is also a 5 min walk where you can get some really cheap food. The staff were really kind and helpful. But I wish there was a common area/lounge areas as everyone had to sit in the kitchen area if you didn't want to be in the room.

Mallki Hostel

Cuenca, Ecuador

Had an amazing time here during new year's eve. The hostel had an amazing atmosphere. The owner of the hostel was really nice and made sure we all had fun celebrating new year's eve. Lots of space to relax and meet everyone in the hostel. Really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely be back!

My Friend Hostel

Trujillo, Peru

Really atmosphere with really nice staff members.if I had more time I definitely would have tried the surf lessons!!


Very nice staff. Great facilities including the billiards and foosball tables. The common area was really spacious and a great place to meet other travelers. They even had a lockable charging station for phones and cameras etc. Overall i really enjoyed my stay! Breakfast had some really nice fruit juices as well!

Kurumi Hostel

Cusco, Peru

Great stay for your money. They will let you leave your bags at the hostel storage if you're going to machu Picchu and they also have personal safes to put your valuables inside.

The Adventure Brew Hostel

La Paz, Bolivia

A really good place to hang out with people at the bar. They have table tennis and billiards to keep you busy. The location is really good as it's about a 10 min walk from the bus station.

Traveler's Guesthouse

Sucre, Bolivia

The common area was really comfortable and relaxing. Great place to hang out and meet people in the hostel. The staff members are all friendly and will help you out as much as you need. Nice kitchen area too if you want to cook. But the central market is just a 10 min walk where you can get really cheap food.

Hostal Laskar

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Fairly close to the town center and very close to the marketplace. Even though there were many people staying at the hostel, there was really no atmosphere. Even though this place advertised a fire at night, they never made an effort to make a fire during the 2 nights I stayed there.

Hostel Cosmo Elqui Stage

La Serena, Chile

Had an awesome time. The rooftop patio is really relaxing. Nice place to lounge around and its the place to be at night to share drinks with everyone from the hostel. The atmosphere was great and met so many great people. The staff were really helpful. Many toilets and showers so didn´t have to wait for anything. The only problem was that the kitchen was prettyyy small.

Hostal Al Yaras

Elqui Valley, Chile

Probably the most relaxing stay I´ve had in South America. Although it is a bit away from the cities, this is the place to go if you want a few days to relax after all the traveling you´ve done. This hostel has a well shaded garden to relax and even a rooftop patio to look at the stars at night. Highly recommend this place if you want to relax and see around the rest of the Elqui Valley. Only 8km to Vicuna and an hour away from Pisco Elqui. Very easy to catch a bus to both and back.

Casa Fischer Hostal

Valparaiso, Chile

Hard to find when you first arrive in Valparaiso but once you get there you'll realize that it's actually conveniently located. It's close to the streets with the bars, walking tour, and the street to catch the buses. Common area is small but it's a great place to meet the people in your hostel! Seemed like there weren't enough lockers in the room or the keys were missing so I wasn't able to use the locker while I stayed there.

Nativa Hostel

Pucon, Chile

The staff here are really friendly and they will provide you with a lot of information on what you can do in Pucon. They are really interested to talk to you so I felt very welcomed. The location is less than a 3 min walk to the TurBus terminal and also have two major supermarkets less than a 100 meters in both directions so that was convenient. The dining table area could have been a bit cleaner, but other than that I can't complain about this place! Great stay!

Universal Traveller's Lodge Hostel

Bariloche, Argentina

There were a few volunteers working for the hostel while I was there and everyone was super nice and helpful. The owner is also really sociable and hospitable. when I told him that I had a problem with my bed, he immediately fixed the problem. The hostel seemed more like staying at a friends house than a hostel so it definitely had a relaxing atmosphere.

Lo De Trivi

El Chalten, Argentina

I had a great time here(3 nights). The atmosphere in the kitchen/common area was really good and made it fairly easy to strike up a conversation with the people around me. The staff were constantly cleaning and were on top of everything at the hostel. Although the hostel is on the opposite side of town from the bus station, the location is still very good because it is located near Laguna de los Tres and Laguna Torre tracks.

Te Anau Lakefront Backpackers

Te Anau, New Zealand

We stayed in the private room that had a common area shared by two other rooms. Because the other rooms were empty, it was like getting an apartment for ourselves. It was very clean and the kitchen in the common area had everything we needed for cooking our dinner.


Great value for the money. I wasn't sure what to expect as the rooms were 1000yen/night. But it ended up being a lot better than I thought. 3-4 beds per room and a shower in each room. The beds were a bit stiff, but again, its only 1000yen.... The staff was really nice and helpful. They were all very down to earth and enjoyed talking to the guests. The location of the guesthouse was fairly close to everything you wanted in Naha city(monorail station, food, beach, shopping, etc)


This place is the bomb. This is the only guesthouse that I've been to where I literally felt like I was relaxing at home or at my friend's house. The owner of the hostel, Hiroshi, was really chill and really went out of his way to make my experience in Himeji more memorable. He even offered to take me around the city in his car and took me to the fish cake factory up in the mountains. At night, he even set up an okonomiyaki party with the other guests. I definitely recommend this place!!

Kyoya Ryokan

Nagoya, Japan

I was blown away by this place. This is a place that could easily be priced a lot higher than it is. The place has its own hot bath that is open the entire night. Next to your bed, they even provide you with the Japanese yukata and a bunch of other things you might get at a Japanese style ryokan that you have to pay at least 5x more for a room. The staff was really nice and very helpful when it came to recommending places to go/eat. The location is really close to the Nagoya castle too!
