The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The hostel is close to the centre but like any location in Ouro Preto, is a steep walk back.

The staff are very helpful and made every effort to assist me with my limited Portuguese. Breakfast is amazing and the buffet dinner selection and price cannot be beaten. Rooms are comfortable and clean.

Casa Mosaico Hostel, Santiago, Chile

26th May 2014

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Heldren recommended great eating locations and readily offered assistance. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was substantial. An issue with the lack of hot water was quickly addressed. Having stayed in other accommodation in Santiago on previous visits Casa Mosaico is well worth trying. Thank you to the staff.

Unfortunately this hostel is only a shadow of its advertised facilities. While breakfast was Ok, there is NO swimming pool, no restaurant, no bar, limited hours to use the kitchen and a charge to use it, a poor excuse for a common room. and the "tour desk" provided limited info for ONE option with a local 'guide' who while being a nice guy, has limited knowledge of the area. The 50R/- charged for transport to the airport is a blatant scam. Organise your own taxi.

I would like recommend Caravella, having stayed on three different occasions recently and having a private room, the cost was great for my budget, the location fantastic, and the staff went out of their way to ensure all my questions were answered and needs meetl. Well done

I found the lodge conmfortable and convenient to transport and within walking distance of many tourist attractions. The ladies shower upstairs had poor drainage and the floor became very wet and slippery using the shower over the bath was the better option. The plumbing associated with the basin in the room was very noisy.

While the rooms do not have windows and open onto a common area, it is a very pleasant and welcoming hostel. The staff are friendly and helpful and breakfast is simple but fresh and filling. The price is very reasonable and its location is walking distance to centro and Plaza Brazil.

This hotel was CLOSED leaving me stranded ans without accommodation or any ideas of where to go to find a hotel in a unfamilia city. Is there some way of you knowing when hotels that are advertised on HostelWorld close down. And how do i go about getting a refund on the deposit i paid? Thank you Frances Grant

The hostel did not accept that the deposit i paid when booking through hostel world was to come off my total account ...so yet again i had to pay the full amount.....(the same happened at New Orleans and San Antonio) meaning that my accommodation bills have been more that i had budgeted for, please email me at fgrant@ekit.com and explain what is meant when a booking is confirmed a fee of $2 plus 10% of the booking is deducted from my credit card.....where is the 10% deposit going....to hostel world or the hostel. I am very disappointed with the process and unless it is explained and an atttempt to rectify the situation is made i will not be using hostelworld to make any more reservations. Thank you.

Like my experience at New Orleans IH, this hostel initially did not want to recognise that i had paid a deposit when i booked with hostelworld. However i insisted and was eventuallly given the credit. The managment need to understand that they must recognise conditions of the service just as we, the customers have to.

This hostel would not recognise that i had already paid a deposit through my booking online with hostel world, and i had to pay the full amount. Hostels who take advantage of using your booking arrangements must accept the conditions, just as we, the customers, have to accept the booking conditons.
