El Curichal Hostel, Rurrenabaque, Bolivia
6.0
18th Aug 2013

Toilets didn't flush while I was here which was a shame. There was a huge group of young and annoying kids staying here as some sort of excursion which made the atmosphere pretty terrible. The staff cancelled the booking of a couple who arrived when I did to make way for these guys. When I came back after my jungle trip I had a reservation in a dorm, but was instead put in a private with two strangers. Weird. It seems reservations are just a suggestion for these guys?

Hotel Mitru, Tupiza, Bolivia

14th Jul 2013

Nice to have my own room after months of dormitories! The staff at the hotel were okay, but right next door at Tupiza tours (the same business I think?) they were a lot more helpful. Went on the four day Salar de Uyuni tour through them and it was great. The included breakfast was pretty nice as well.

La Covacha Hostel, Salta, Argentina

2nd Jul 2013

I loved Salta, and loved this hostel. Thanks Diego for helping with everything. The rooftop is great but gets a little cold at night, they are opening a new common room soon, which should be great! Only minor problem I had was that only one of the bathrooms could be locked.

Hostel Independencia, Mendoza, Argentina
8.3
29th Jun 2013

It's a pretty nice hostel, right near the main plaza. The staff were nice, but some were new so maybe not as knowledgeable as they could have been. The bathrooms were SUPER cold, not 100% clean either. This would be a great hostel in a lot of cities, but Mendoza has better (I liked Mora the best of the 3 I stayed in)

PataPata Hostel, Valparaiso, Chile

23rd Jun 2013

The location is great, in a safe and beautiful part of Valporaiso. I definitely recommend paying the extra for breakfast, the fresh smoothie and toastie is a great way to start the day and the lady who works in the mornings is super nice and helpful. Some of the facilities weren't so great, the water is either ice cold or scalding hot, the bunks are flimsy and shake all over the place and the kitchen only has one fork. These are all small problems though, would definitely stay again.

Great location, close to the metro and some nice things to see, close to shops, not too far from the markets etc. The place was pretty empty when I was there though, which made the atmosphere kind of strange.

Nice friendly place, in a good location in Bariloche. The big dining table was really nice, everyone ate breakfast and dinner together. The breakfast was amazing as well, homemade bread and jams - delicious! Staff were fun and helped organize anything you were looking for

Cruz del Sur Hostel, Ushuaia, Argentina

8th May 2013

Great location, Ushuaia is a great place to visit and this hostel is close to all the activities. Staff helped out with bookings and recommendations, but be prepared to speak some Spanish. The rules posted on every surface were a bit off putting and the staff hovered around way too closely at times.

On The Road Hostel, Buenos Aires, Argentina

29th Apr 2013

Lovely small hostel, felt like a family. The place is beautiful, but is definitely not in pristine condition if that's you're thing. It's located in a great spot in Palermo Hollywood, and not too far from the metro if you want to go elsewhere. I found that the wifi and hot water were both a bit temperamental, but the other aspects of the hostel more than made up for this. Special thanks to Juan P, Rafa and Felix.

The hostel has everything you need, but is really big and doesn't have too much character. i really enjoyed the asado on Friday night! San Telmo is a cool area with lots happening; it feels 'young' and 'arty' but doesn't feel safe if you are alone at night.

Although it looks a little out of the way on the map, Asakusa is a great area to stay in in Tokyo. K's House was a very friendly and welcoming hostel. Met nice people there, and the small lounge with kotatsu was great and cozy

Thank you very much for staying with us. Please visit us again in Winter to enjoy kotatsu : ) See you next time !

Had a fantastic stay in this hostel, which is in an amazing old but immaculately clean building. It is in a great area, surrounded by narrow streets and traditional buildings. The owner was very helpful, sorting me out with some bike maps when I mentioned I got lost on the way. The recommended restaurant was also great.

Great hostel. The location is great, really close to all the public transport links, which you will use a lot if you plan on exploring the temples and mountains. The staff were really helpful and friendly. I even got free bike hire for a day because I stayed there for four nights.

Thank you very much for your comment! Kyoto is definitely much more enjoyable when you bicycle around:) We hope you enjoyed your time here, and look forward to seeing you soon!

Hostel Base Point Osaka, Osaka, Japan

It was cheap but not good value. The rooms were so small I couldn't get out of my bed without falling into the curtains of the next bunk. They actually cut a corner out of my bed so that it could fit in the room. The lounge was so small that it was useless, same with the kitchen. Would not recommend it for a solo traveller, or anyone who wants to spend any time in the hostel. Have to give credit to the location though.

Perfect guesthouse. The house was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Location was good, close to the train/bus station and walking distance to nice restaurants and the sights in town. Best of all is the owner Miki is the nicest and most enthusiastic host around!

I found all the J-Hoppers to be really good hostels. They all had everything you would need, but still had some character of their own, unlike some other chains.

I got the "superior" capsule just because I wanted to make sure I got a tv. It turns out this actually gives you a little room surrounding your capsule, with a locker desk and chair. This was great for privacy, especially as I was staying for 4 nights. When I checked in the receptionist had very limited English, but we managed to get it done. May be a problem if you are hoping for reccomendations or directions. The included breakfast was quite nice.
