great location in a hutong and only a few minutes from a metro station. close to dongzhimen so easy access to airport via express train. room was clean and cleaned every day. i was only on a stop over so not enough time to check the action, but it sounded pretty live and fun and looked a good place for it. lots of information about stuff to do in town (not trying to sell you tours or anything like that). recommended.
Great hostel and really good fun. surprisingly big and clean for a party hostel. It was a bit unfortunate it didn't get a higher rating, because the last two days we were without electricity and it was 40 degrees outside, so it was like sleeping in an oven. however, clearly not the hostel's fault as the whole block was out. seems like the other new one is in a more built up road, less likely to cut out probably, so would recommend there in summer.
fine hostel, clean enough, tv internet etc. location is OK, close enough to the beach but still 7 or 8 blocks. it was quiet when we arrived but just before high season (10 Dec) so the whole town was quiet. would go again in high season. rooms a bit small and bathroom didnt drain particuarly well after shower but reasonable. dont think there are many decent hostels here tho and this is good enough so would recommend.
Feel bad giving a low rating as the people were nice. Room was stuffy. Hostel was empty tho most of town was. Booked activities which got cancelled two days in a row. No one showed and never called so we wasted two days waiting. Ok- not the hostels fault but the tour agency, but theyre working with these people and frankly it was unacceptable. Some of the workers dont speak any english so we just got no information. Ok its argentina but dont call it 'internacional hostel' then...
Sweet hostel. All the facilities are perfect, like a traveller has planned them to a T. Gaston is pretty jokes and knows everything you need to know about the tours and the town. Hard to pick between this and la tosca- both are equally good. Tip-snorkelling with sea lions is expensive but incredible. Do it.
Only stayed for one night but was impressed. Really cool vibe at the hostel. Owner knows his stuff re tours. Good cooking facilities and en suite shower in dorms. Nice big comfy beds. Cant remember a single con.
I mean it was liveable, but it wasnt pleasant. Its a trek up a hill far from the main throng. The security is poor, lockers all broken and front door left open - but i guess there is little crime in ushuaia. The underfloor heating made the room unbearably hot. The bed sheets didnt cover the length of the bed and s not hygienic really. The bathroom was smelly. Only good thing was breakfast was ok and wifi worked. Go elsewhere unless desparate.
Like being in some local family's house, doesnt feel like a hostel at all and only 3 rooms i think. But really comfortable big rooms, big living room with tv and good wifi. Recommended if you wna chill but no atmosphere.
Really nice cozy hostel, welcomed after serious trekking in the cold. Wifi and computer also good. Breakfast is v good and diy and eggs provided. Only issue was that we were kind of rudely kicked out at check out, not allowed to stay a couple hours to check in somewhere else which put a dampener on an otherwise nice hostel.
Great lay out, open plan chillout area with view of mountains and lake- stunning. The rooms are fine and clean and mostly ensuite i think. Only issue is that its away from the main throng, but still only a 10-15 min walk so no biggie. Definitely recommended.
Ok this isnt a fake review, super serious. This is the best hostel ever. Dorms are standard with standard lockers and the showers are average but hot. But there is fire to warm u when cold. There is a gorgeous dog. The staff are jokes and helpful. Location is fine, next to pullman buses so book them if poss. Wifi is decent. I honestly dont have one single complaint i can think of. Book in advance i you wna stay here as it books up quick.
Didnt stay the night in the end but hostel is close to town and te agencies. The hostel isnt an agency so you can get good information about the other agencies and location. He let me have a shower and it was seriously good. He also speaks english well. Dont know about the dorms but would recommend service
No complaints really. Only got to stay for one night and had to be up early so couldnt party but looked like a fun bar. Food is good and not so expensive. They were also fairly accommodating with leaving my bags to go on tours and let me chill for a day on return without paying to use facilities. But, its full of wannabes who just come to la paz to party for weeks and never check out what else is on offer. If thats your crowd then its your place.
Its a beautiful old colonial house and its seriously big/spacious with bar area and hangout chilout garden area in back. We booked a dorm (which looked spacious) and it was full so they gave us a 3 bed room. There is a rainforest shower so ask about it. Door has security code at night and its cheap. Two complaints: breakfast was rubbish and wifi barely worked, but i get the impression wifi is slow everywhere in sucre.
Dodgy area right next to the OLD bus station, which is now a shady den of who knows what. Theres a dodgy hotel next door with prostitutes coming out often, so maybe a brothel. Also heard bad reviews of ecological tours. We went with pantanal discovery (through Gil, recommended by our lonely planet and who operates from nacional hotel around the corner). The tour is more expensive but it seems to be a lot better though not been on ecological so cant confirm for sure.
Safe, clean, good breakfast. Its also good location near the beach and on the main copa road. Id recommend it if you wna stay in copacabana, but ipanema is safer, nicer and more modern.
You get what you pay for. It is super cheap and in a good location in ipanema. Fun hostel for partying as well. But the room was a bit grimy, the toilet didnt flush and most importanty, the lockers were useless. You could access someone elses compartment locker by pulling the middle compartment with little effort. So we didnt feel safe leaving our stuff there so we moved.
We were robbed by knife 20m from the hotel so the area is unsafe. The guy guessed the spot we were robbed at so its happened before and he didnt bother to tell us. He was then rude and confrontational and offered one pot noodle on credit only 'out of courtesy' but we could have no more (we would pay at check out) even though we had no cards or money on us. We moved the next day and were refused a discount of one night. Much safer to stay in ipanema/any other hostel. #worsthostelever
They got PES!!! Playstation, tv dvds, food nights for 20 real but food and caipis are actually unlimited. 2 problems. They rented us bikes for 25R which basically were total rubbish and we had to walk. Also got bitten by mozzies ALOT. Cos the rooms are hot and people leave the widows open. Aircon looked like it worked but wasnt on. You get a towel and the breakfast is pretty good, and lockers are safe/good.
Great fun party hostel. Good location really close to the metro. The music goes on late but not too late so its not really an issue. Hot showers, clean ish rooms, big lockers, good wifi, cable tv, ok kitchen. Only thing is you have to buy beers / alcohol at the hostel (6.50 reals for 600ml itapavia).
Really average hostel. Nice big rooms but the lockers didnt seem that secure. However the rooms are lockable unlike alot of dorms. Bathroom was small and ok but nothing special. Its not cheap but its in an expensive area so it is good value if you are looking to live in palermo
Nice hostel, rooms lockable by key and padlock for extra safety. Cable, good aircon nice bed and shower room was ok. Also has a balcony and table/chairs for a nice touch. Its quiet tho so not appropriate if youve come to party.
Its actually a pretty decent dorm. Beds are good, two showers and one toilet are fine. Share between 8 ppl but never seemed to be an issue. Good location 1 min walk from the action and 5 from the pier but quiet at night. My only complaint is that we were charged differently, between 300-350 baht. The aircon is very good depending on where youre sleeping. The ppl further away need it at 18, which is freezing if youre near the bed, so bring a jumper... Restaurant next door is the cheapest and good
Quite literally the perfect dorm room hostel. Ac worked really well plus fan. Beds were big and comfortable, had a big enough lockable chest for belongings, curtain to block out light / view from room. Bathroom was big and clean and had hot water. Water pressure not the best but good enough for SEA, provided soap and shampoo. Also there is a lift. Public transport links to both airports (29 bus to DM and rail to suc. Far from khaosan rd / party area (5km), so not ideal for party lovers.
Be warned that they accept bookings even when fully booked and might try and put you in the grottier hostel opposite. We complained and mr why not paid for us to stay in a more expensive and really nice 3 star hotel nearby. Nice bloke and really helpful an picked us up from the bus stop. His actual hostel seemed nice but cant confirm.
Quite near the royal palace and museum ie 5 min walk. But it was a bit far from the main throng, still only a 15min walk and its a nice walk along the river. The room was a bit damp but not unclean. Basic room. The tv has cable but fuzzy on most channels and cut off frequently. However, the aircon actually worked well and there was a decent fan aswell. One of the guys there also climbed on the roof to get my wallet which i dropped out the window...
The room was fine and clean. The aircon didnt work at all but the fan kept us cool enough at night (still annoying when you pay for aircon). There was a safe in the room and the tv has cable. However the room was very small (hardy any floor space outside the bed). Also its a tall thin building so there are a lot of rooms high up ie a LOT if stairs maybe 7 or 8 floors. Thats fine if you only intend on climbing them once a day but not if youre in and out a lot. Probably nicer hostels about but ok.
Run by a Kiwi. Only stayed one night but he was pretty clinical with directions, bus bookings and payment ie really helpful. The room was a bit damp but the fan is good enough. However for the price it is excellent value for money. Wifi didnt work in the room (but we were the furthest room). Wifi and computers (extra charge but cheap) in the reception. Also has a range of food at ok prices. Also the owner was just a really nice bloke in general. Recommend
Actually a really good hostel. The aircon was too cold, the tv had cable with a good picture, the bathroom was basically fine. The owner is also really helpful, you can rent mopeds and bikes from the hostel, they have a decent breakfast selection at $2 with good portions. The owner was also really funny. Although i was a bit concerned with how handsy he got! Its also less than 10 mins to the market, restaurant, bars etc. would recommend
We had the nicest room in the hotel for one night. It was the penthouse and had a huge balcony overlooking a mountain. Great huge room. Cant review the hostel in general cos not there long enough and not in the cheaper rooms. Would recommend that penthouse room for a treat tho and only about $15 pp. close to night market and bars.
Really basic hostel. Dorms were ok single beds only 5 in a room. Decent big bathroom. Also decent location 10 mins from bars pubs and in the old city. However was there in the summer and the room was really hot. 2 fans covering 5 people. And also there were lots of mozzies. However it was like $3 a night and it is acceptable if you want sth cheap
Facilities are fine. But there are no rooms. The beds are separated by plastic walls which dont reach the ceiling so you can everything that happens in the hostel all night.
Its not the liveliest hostel. However it is really really cheap even for a private room. And its basically clean and fine. Its more happening at the hanoi backpakers hostel but we just stayed here for half the price and went there in the evening for beers and had as much fun as if we were staying there.
Clean, friendly staff. Aircon and tv worked. No problems. About a 20 min walk from the station. Pretty good value for money.
