El Labrador Hostel, Cusco, Peru

10th Apr 2016

Booked the double bed room, but on find finding it has an internal window onto the foyer asked if I could switch rooms. They moved me to the queen which had a skylight and looked nice enough so great, I thought. The queen is actually two singles horizontal and so creates a very very uncomfortable gap and ridge in the center. If your less the 5'8" could sleep across across the bed no problem tho... The only positive I had was they prepared (albeit a really ordinary) breakfast at 0515 for me.

The owner is a champ, super friendly and a genuinely good person. He can organise buses etc for you at cost and basically goes out of his way to help with whatever you need. Wifi is good, beds are good & average (stayed twice), really the only downfall is 2 showers and small fridge in the kitchen (but great breakfast provided) so best to shower the night before when getting ready for TdP. Anyhow if I'm back in town would stay again and so should you.

Location not bad, they hire bikes and they are good enough to get around but the place is a little pricey for what you get. Others I meet just arrived in town and found better down by the lake for less.

Only the 8 bed dorm has a window, the beds are pretty comfortable and a great local beer joint is on the corner nearby, but otherwise a pretty basic hostel. Likely to be empty tho in the off season....it was for me.

In Singapore good value, but Singapore its self is not good value. the roof top social area is really the only social area also as the reception / breakfast area is a not really suited to it. Otherwise very quite rooms from the street and good beds.

It's on Victoria Parade and all rooms face it, so loud, and not much by the way of common lounge/TV room other than 2 very small areas and the bar but otherwise clean, comfortable and for Melbourne well priced.

The first dorm I checked into was practically raining from the inside, with no fan ventilation including in the bathroom, so everything was damp. I changed rooms the next day and it was better (the bathroom fan worked at least). Location good and as part of Central Backpackers group also get the nightly free beer at the sister hostel down the road, but otherwise standard in terms of price and quality. Would I stay again, probably not immediately without first checking out alternatives.

This really is a home stay, the family live on the mezzanine half way up the stairs. They put effort into their guests and if numbers sufficient might even cook a meal for very good price. There tours also cheaper than on the street through an agency. For me the airport transfer with the husband on his 125cc Honda cruiser was good (scooters are not motorbikes!) - the price was fair and he could actually ride. Only negative is beds are in conjoined areas with no doors and only 1 bathroom.

21st Feb 2014

Really new so really clean. Typical (for Asia) hard beds and internal 4 bed dorms with glazed internal window let a bit too much light in at night, but nothing a curtain won't fix when the owners get time. It literally just opened during my stay. The owners have very good English and very friendly. Location great if you're spending a night before catching the train but for sights and beach you either need a Moto or hire a bike yourself (you can negotiate down to 100k VND/day).

Not a social/party hostel, but the best party street is 30s walk so it doesn't need to be, but far enough from the noise down a safe side alley to still be quite. The family staff are very helpful and friendly, and based solely on them I would recommend the place, but good location, clean and quite so would stay again.

7th Feb 2014

Short walk to all the main sites, and the staff are very friendly and helpful, although only one has a good grasp of English, the others grab him if he's not around tho so never had any problems. Only really downside is the internet was pretty much non-existent so had to use a connection from down the road. Otherwise clean with typical Laos (hard) beds and reasonable (for a hostel) breakfast included.

Typical Veng Vieng hostel, just a bed, although a unique one at that, sort of a tree house theme. Good value for the price and not far from the main social area.

You get what you pay for, cheap and a place to stay but not much else. Staff really friendly and helpful however and will point you in the direction of the sights. Free breakfast is also included, and we'll, it's eatable but for the overall price good value.

Great location and most comfortable beds in south East Asia for sure, although probably because the place is new and fit out still being completed. Once finished the number of bathroom facilities will probably be inadequate for the number of rooms tho, but until then worth a stay - just don't get the staff to organise any tours or travel, go out to the street and save yourself some money.

Great location and the staff can organise bus tickets, visas etc for you which seems to work pretty good. Meals and laundry slightly more than if you walk a little up the street but overall I would (and have since) stayed again.

If your a light sleeper the rooms on the Main Street with the best view are definitely not for you, even with the heavy curtain they aren't very loud. Stayed twice the first time shower was blocked but second was ok.

This is NOT a party hostel, but the rooms are great and the nightlife nearby is far better than the old-town (which incidentally is easily walking distance).

One of the best views available, good value for money and good breakfast although some attention to minor details about the hotel would be nice (more than one power outlet in a room, fixing the shower head )in my cave room to name a couple), but a good place to stay anyhow.

Great location, excellent staff but the rooms are very hot if it is hot outside and because of the location if you open a window they then become also very loud. Bring ear plugs if you visit in summer.
