Maddy is a lovely person and does a great thing here. It is nice to know that the money she makes from renting out the rooms goes to a good cause (cat food)! If you like cats, the number of cats is not overwhelming as she only lets out 10 or so at any one time. Our room was basic but clean, no curtains when we arrived but Maddy put some up that evening. the shared bathroom is one outside room with toilet (broken) and cold shower. Toilet bin not emptied the 2 days and nights we were there!
Nice sized kitchen, not allowed to cook meat in it but they are ok if you go and buy ready cooked and eat it in the hostel and there is a massive supermarket nearby. Pool is probably one of the dirtiest looking ones in a while, you couldn't see the feet of people standing in it! The air con was noisy but did it's job, from 9pm to 9am they turn it on by remote control.
Brilliant breakfast, cereals yogurt omelette bread jam coffee etc, comfy bed. Room got very hot and the ceiling fan was weak so didn't help at all. Clean bathrooms, the girls bathrooms were fine cubicles but my hubby wasn't impressed with a shower curtain instead of toilet doors in the mens! Great location right on the main square.
100% the best hostel you will stay in, they describe themselves and deserve to call it a hotel-hostel! Lovely and clean, great kitchen/dining area, lovely tv and sitting room with fire that they light when it's colder. The pool snd garden are well kept too. The place is soooo clean, and Boris the manager is the friendliest hostel worker we have met so far on our trip. We stayed here for 7 nights and were reluctant to leave still! Go to Cassis cafe whilst you are in town, yum!
Staff really friendly and a nice atmosphere with other guests chatting in the common patio area. Internet was really slow but this is a San Pedro wide problem, you are in the desert after all! Cute cat was fun to watch. Rooms clean but bathroom a bit dated (enamel chipping off the shower tray).
Good for a night before or after the salt flats tour. The electric went off a couple of times for a few minutes but nothing major. No internet is a bit annoying and internet in Uyuni is REALLY slow in the cafes too, just a warning!
Fantastic "hostel", more like a b&b though, owners were very helpful giving out map and info on where to visit. Wi-fi worked in the room. Bedrooms and en-suite were lovely and cosy, very clean too. Kitchen is fairly small but had everything you need in it. Definitely stay here, you will not be disappointed!
Great place, like a b&b, lovely twin room with plenty of space. Good toilet and shower rooms so never had to wait. They sell a few items on site that didn't even have a huge mark up on store prices, we managed to make ourselves the standard backpacker dinner of noodles without leaving the building! Location great as halfway between bus station and the tourist sites.
Lovely staff who replied to my email before arrival to help organise our homestay tour and onward bus journey. Rooms are big, our first room had a musty smell, but the room we stayed in after our homestay was lovely, more like a basic hotel. It's a bit far from the main square, but near a supermarket and good little kitchen to cook in
Lovely private room with en suite. Jesus is so helpful and great for booking tours at a low price, our Nazca lines flight was only $85 each, some paid $100! Bad points - Very small kitchen, and when the owner goes out, you cannot get into the hostel! We only had to wait 5 minutes each time though.
Emailed to book the transfer service and had response confirming it, instructions etc. Flight arrived at 11.30pm, after looking around for 1.5 hours for our transfer, tried to call hostel, number given didn't include dialling codes so couldn't get through. At 2am we decided to get a cab instead. Staff never apologised or mentioned the transfer. Staff also unhelpful generally, no maps of the area, always sitting with their back to you on reception etc. Cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Such great value for a private room. Lovely apartment with tvs in bedrooms with cable tv. Kitchen sufficient to cook in and not busy. Breakfast nice, the normal Argentina pastries, bread, dulce de leche, jams etc. Air con worked wonderfully in the small room. Bathrooms were clean and always hot water. In a nice area for bars and restaurants but a 15 minute walk to the metro so just be prepared. The cleaner also does a cheap laundry service that we used.
Great free wine hour means that there is a chance to socialise with the guests and also the owner. The kitchen is quite big, but usually busy. Twin room that we had was very small and hot, there was a toilet en suite which we were not expecting but it was very small. The room and bathroom were quite dirty but the communal areas were spotless. The bed sheets didn't fit the bed properly, quite annoying! Somebody stole our chocolate from the fridge! Great breakfast compared to others in Argentina.
Well this is a nice small hostel, but there is way too much noise. Every time the doorbell rings (usually at least every 5 minutes as you have to buzz to get in), you can hear it throughout the hostel. Also, you can hear the bars that are on the same street and they are open very late, good luck getting any sleep before 5am! If you are looking for somewhere to crash in between partying though, it's a great place, breakfast is served late so you can lie in. Pretty clean throughout.
Our favourite bedroom in a hostel so far, even though it was twin beds and we are a couple! Everything smelt so clean and fresh and nicely decorated with a lamp in the room. Air con could only be used 10pm to 10am, but there was also a ceiling fan you could use. Kitchen well equipped, nice external common area under cover. Didn't use the pool but a few guests did and it was clean. Breakfast ok, cereal on offer which made a nice change. Location is great for the bus station, very easy to find.
Good hostel with "full english" breakfast, well it was pretty good to be honest, sausages, eggs, beans and toast, plus fruit, tea, coffee, juice. You couldn't help yourself to more though but pretty big breakfast for a hostel! We had a small double private and nice to have aircon. Good common area both inside and out. Didn't get tomake use of the pool as it rained both days but it looked clean.
We booked a private double and were actually given a whole dorm room to ourselves with two single beds pushed together. Not exactly a problem, but the two beds were different heights/quality, so made it quite uncomfortable as a couple! The hostel is a bit of a DIY building added onto their original house. The breakfast was lovely though, and Amanda was so very helpful on things to see around the island and gave us maps, bus details etc.
This place is amazing. It's right near the beach, the staff are absolutely brilliant, really friendly and they join you on nights out so they become your friends. The rooms are arranged into houses with a couple of bathrooms in each house, and the cleaners come in 3 times per day to clean so it's immaculate. The rooms are slightly on the small side, but who cares when you know it's clean, you have your own plug and light by the bed etc. Dinner in the hostel for approximately R$20 per night brill
Lovely hostel and a great location in Vila Madalena. Sarah was very helpful and gave us 2 fantastic maps when we arrived, one for the local area and another for the whole city. Breakfast was fresh and standard for Brazil, but one of the better places we have been (eg sandwich toaster available for use). Kitchen was well stocked with a few nice new pots and pans. We were staying in a basic double room, it was clean and the only real bad thing was no window in the room.
Such a lovely clean hostel, and the owner was really friendly. The location is quite difficult to get to using public transport, especially having to carry your rucksack approx 1km down a dirt track - make sure you are wearing the right footwear! Not much to do in the area apart from the local beach.
