Santa Mix Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Very cosy and friendly. Small happy hostel so it gets a good vibe, can get to know everyone. Rooftop barbecues with the owner, view over Rio. Rooms a bit small, showers need cleaning a more often - once a day isn't good enough in a hostel! Lockers are metal and it's impossible to open and close them quietly. Could do with some more power points for charging. These are minor points though, overall very good and would stay here again.

Happy Buddha Boutique Hostel

Medellin, Colombia

Very modern and clean. More a boutique hotel than a hostel. Unfortunately a bit lacking in atmosphere, and the common areas a little empty. They've made such a good job of the private rooms... but the bathrooms... One had no vents, so you take a shower and your bedroom turns into a sauna, the other was tiny squeezed under the roof so you bang your head on a lethal edge. Hot water? If you're lucky. And the towel hook fell off and the toilet broke. Staff excellent, would stay again.
