The Full Moon Backpackers

The corridor smelled truly awful. Bed mattress was rock hard. Pillows and duvets had a number of yellowy-orange stains. And, personally, I don't like brushing my teeth with warm water. Staff were alright, but a bit disorganised.

Hostal Aventureros

Bogota, Colombia
54%

A rather dingey hostel. The bed dorm we stayed in was very small with no window. The beds are not very comfortable. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired - the jam is horrible! But worst of all was the atmosphere, and the staff's rather cold and dismissive attitude. Then upon leaving they tried to over-charge us! We left after one night and went to stay in Chocolate Hostel which was 2 blocks away and much much nicer (well worth the extra US$2.50 more per night!)

Vibes Hostel

Quito, Ecuador
57%

The private double bedroom smelled bad. There is only one bathroom upstairs which is poorly laid out. The social areas are nice though. The older man and lady working there were very nice but other staff members were quite dismissive and one was utterly incompetent. Upon paying, she gave us change which was $5 short and then we asked to make a reservation in 4 days time which she confirmed, only to be told upon our arrival 4 day later that we didn't have a reservation and that all beds were full

after the bad smell in the double (which is a minisuite clean with a georgeous view of the mountains), the "dismissive and incompetent staff" and the change 5usd short , I am still wondering why you wanted to come back and stay here again ? just to make clear our staff is the best, good luck in your next hostel.

Ekeko Hostel

Lima, Peru

The hostel has a lovely homely feel and a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The kitchen is very spacious and although breakfast is simple, the bread and jam were delicious (unlike in many other hostels). The only downside was that there was no hot water in our ensuite bathroom - cold showers I'm afraid.

La Albahaca Hostel

Tilcara, Argentina
91%

La Albahaca was an absolutely lovely place to stay - so much so that we ended up extending our stay there! The facilities are all clean and functional and the staff are so unbelievably nice and helpful - they always prepare you breakfast (even if you're late getting up) and are quick to advise you on where to go and what to do. The best part of it, though, is how homey it feels and the music that the owners play and sing!

Hostel Mamut

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
83%

The hostel was very friendly and social with excellent staff. As well as being able to hire bikes at a great rate (better than most places in town), the tours that were offered were fantastic due to the brilliant tour guides that work for the hostel! My partner wasn't too keen on the idea of going on tours and being carted about with a bunch of strangers, but the tour guides made it feel nothing like that. The tours were really laid back (and hilarious!)

Hostal Licanantay

We felt right at home in this hostel. The staff were really friendly and there was a positive social atmosphere. Gonzalo, the hostel owner, was more like a host and made the hostel seemed really homely. The location was excellent, and the facilities were really clean, in my opinion. We had a great time!
