The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

Stayed here on and off for over a week in dorm and privates - has such a great location for getting to things like tayrona, Minca, and palomino and they will store your stuff which is awesome. Great staff, great facilities, very clean and with a kitchen located close to a huge supermarket so can save money cooking.

We stayed in nonAC dorm which was our bad - so hot and full of mosquitos. We go to bed early and are up early so the loud music right beside the dorm was a slight turnoff but the staff was nice and I think for more party oriented travellers it would be alright - not super clean mind you.

Arcadia Hostel

Medellin, Colombia

We stayed in the most expensive dorm and it was nice and new, however, the staff was quite disorganized when we arrived despite the fact that we had a reservation. Took us to the room but was not able to tell us if there were two free dorm beds as peoples stuff was everywhere and she just left us there until we just picked what we assumed were the two free beds (sheets weren't folded or anything so hard to tell if they had been cleaned). The hostel does have a cat(s) which leads to an odor

Owner Comment (Hide)
Argonauts is not the most expensive dorm, its a 8 bed dorm ensuit and very well equipped with big lockers, private lamps and shelves, electricity sockets in each bed.At the moment it costs 21000 pesos a bit more than 10US including coffee and pancakes as breakfast.We have put labels NOT to change beds without advising the reception first, unfortunately there are people who wont respect that creating this kind of problems..a free bed in this dorm should have new sheets and folded cover.

Stunning location that even though is 20 minute walk out of town is so worth it and doable - more difficult with all your stuff but we still did it. Close to coffee farms and had super clean facilities, great kitchen and a pretty good breakfast !

An okay hostel in huaraz. Owner was very nice, but the other staff were terrible. They would always be on the computer playing video games, and would look pissed if you tried to talk to them. Other then that it was good.

Traveler's Guesthouse

Sucre, Bolivia

only stayed here one night - facilities were average at best but it was very cheap and they did have a kitchen which we used to cook a very basic meal. Location is alright not in the centre of sucre but walkable, beside Simon Bolivar park which is kind of sketchy at night but we stayed in the hostel. Water was luke warm.

Very nice hostel with good facilities- nice bathrooms, kitchen, very nice lounge area and rooms were good and clean too. Were a lot of flies in the kitchen and in one area upstairs, just a result of having the windows open, not horrible thoughStaff was helpful planning although one man was a little pushy about doing certain tours. Overall though great place - let us leave our stuff there and use all the facilities before we caught a bus out. Walkable to everywhere of necessity including bus stop

Was a good hostel for the price, at only 30 real. Felt a little grimey, and bathroom was a bit far from rooms, but they were doing renovations. Would stay again because of the price, but not the best hostel in the world. Hue and the German guy were very helpful and nice.

Stayed a few nights at Iguanas in the loft. Even though it is isn't right by the bars you can still hear music until almost 5. Also every time someone walked the floors would shake and wake you up. First night I woke up with bed bug bites, which sucked. I guess you get what you pay for though (5 dollars a night for loft)
