This is the definition of Hostel! Great atmosphere, staff are your friends, clean, plenty of locker space, breakfast is the best i have had in all of south america. Felipe the owner is a real social character that gets all guests involved. Great place for meeting people, in the heart of lapa, half hour to get to copa and ipa beach, that includes walking and waiting.

More resort style then hostel but still a great place to stay. 2kms from main part of town but easy as to get too. Its off season now so it wasnt busy but u could imagine this place in the summer with its pool n more of a crowd and some great parties. Staff are friendly, beers are cheap and it has a great pool. Plus iguazu falls is fckn awesome!

Its a great location, security is great too, very clean. But its not milhouse, if you want party party go milhouse, this is still party-ish, but if you want to sleep you can actually manage to do it whenever you want, thats the plus. Staff are ok. Some friendly some not

Giving this 100% coz i love and enjoyed my stay here. Kye the manager has a real warm welcoming on arrival, bar staff and atmosphere are great. Really clean, the agua is totally calienttee for a nice shower. Clean and spacious. Only kind of downfall is the 'tour desk advisor' isnt exactly like what you'd get at milhouse in cusco, its more like asking a friend for this thoughts, the guy was really friendly tho, but defs not a travel advisor. Be back soon guys

Casa Bellavista Hostel

Overall a great place to stay, central, secure and the family living there are so supportive and helpful with all your needs. Breakfast is great too. Downside, if you have a room at the front, the sound in the alley way is ridiculously loud, and the wifi needs some serious maintenance. Not a real party vibe either if thats what u want.

Would defiantly come back here and defs recommend it. The staff r so damn helpful, warm friendly people, great atmosphere and vibe for meeting people. Only downfall is AC is only between 9pm-9am n Cartagena can get stinking hot, so this can be tough, but otherwise perfect, wifi great too. U got the party hostel across the road too, easy access n then u come back n sleep, also apparently staff at the media luna are terrible. Stay here

Its a good place given its got a pool and right across the road from the beach and diving centre's. But the action in aqaba is a 10minute drive to downtown. I wanted to be on the beach side so I chose this location, surrounded by other hotels. But if you want to be more in the city side with a range of restaurants and bars then book in the Centre of aqaba. Its good value for money and I got upgraded to a private room coz the dorm was booked out. Cant complain. Staff the most friendly

Its a great hostel for so many reasons, but not for other reasons. Its clean, big, hotel style, strong wifi, quite luxurious, brekky cheap and filling. Although its quite big open bar and common areas, not the easiest way to intimately meet ppl, and staff dont organise anything for gatherings on a social level, such as pub crawls, activity nights. It lacks that true hostel experience.

Only thing it lacked was lockers in the dorms, but otherwise fine. Do the camel safari n sleep under the stars! !

A bad start with the driver not showing up at the train station. The manager didnt charge me for this so it was quickly resolved. Enjoyed my time here n would come back. Friendly staff, strong wifi, right outside the taj mahal entrance n food at the restaurant was great. They even gave me a room when I checked out to wait in for my night train at no charge! Although its not a place easy to meet people

The staff here are fantastic and know how to run a business, always ensuring the customer is happy rather then most other indian business' that would do what they can to rip you off a dollar, rather then looking at it from a long term perspective. Id defiantly recommend this place n would go back. Locations great only a short walk from the river, wifis good, they offer free pick up from train station. Boat ride through the ganges river also offered, no pressure to buy anything.

An awesome hostel, although it is more then what you'd normally pay for a dorm room, you can't get better in Hong Kong. The 9 bed dorm is actually really spacious, you even have your private space on your bunk which includes a shutter. A kitchen to use, water and coffee all day, helpful staff. Good location. Modern and wifi on every single level. I would highly recommend this hostel and stay again!

The rooms were great, modern and clean, the bar was nice and served decent meals and decent prices. The location sucked a bit, in the middle of no where. Around 20mins from city central, staff weren't the best, they just weren't very friendly, they were helpful if u asked questions but they were just dull characters. Also weren't many travellers, don't know if that's because of the time of year/winter.
