American Dream Hostel

New York, USA

I would definitely stay here again. Comfortable and clean. It's great value for money. The breakfast is really good. Great proximity to be able to walk to great bars. I'd rexcommend the taproom 307 around the corner. The area, gresty is a nice place to be

Yellow HouseHostel

Medellin, Colombia

The hostel is a 3 minute walk to the metro. It's really easy to get into town. The area is nice and there are shops and restaurants nearby. I'd recommend the diner at the petrol station! Vincent and his 2 dogs are very welcoming, breakfast is good. It's really clean and the Internet is good. Its good there are outdoor swimming pools nearby but you need trunks and a swimming cap. I'd recommend staying at yellow house

Colonial House Quito

Quito, Ecuador

The building is really nice. The breakfast is one of the best we've had in southamerica and certainly worth paying for. The staff are really helpful and the wifi is really good! It's a 7minute walk to the old town / plaza. The hostel is up a quiet road so you have to be careful if you are walking up there after dark

Marcilia Beach Bungalows

Mancora, Peru

Had a brilliant time with marcilia. He's a really friendly person and the most accommodating host we have experienced to date. He helped us find out about surfing and helped with our bus tickets. It's 5km from mancora but you're not missing out. Marcilia is a pro in the kitchen. try the alfredo. Really chilled and relaxed with just 3 bungalows.. A 2minute walk to a very quiet beach. A million times better than the beach closer to town. His 2 dogs are great with real character :) I'd recommend!!


I would highly recommend areiquipay. The staff are really helpful and friendly. It's easy to book tours and buses through them. The facilities are brilliant. Pool table, ping pong, massive tv, 2 kitchens. It's cleaned all the time and spotless for it. It's only 4 blocks from the plaza and security is more than excellent. I would definitely go back. 8-10 soles in a taxi from the bus station to the hostel. Make sure you've got the right address. LP is wrong

Hotel Utama

Copacabana, Bolivia

We emailed and were picked up from the bus which was nice. Only stayed 2 nights while visiting lake titicaca. It was easy to book through the hotel reception. The breakfast was good. The shower was freezing. We had cable TV in our room and the beds were really comfortable

Arica Unite

Arica, Chile

Jenny is lovely. The hostel is really clean and the kitchen is better than average. Breakfast was ok. The location is by the beach but a 15mims walk into town. We got a cheap taxi back at night. The wifi is good and we enjoyed our stay


Good for a night in uyuni. Nothing amazing but a bed to sleep in. No wifi. Close to the banks/restaurants

Jodanga Backpackers Hostel

Santa Cruz, Bolivia

A really nice hostel. Breakfast is really good and the staff are friendly. The kitchen is massive. The bar is great and cheap and the BBQ that was organised was great. I remember other reviews had said about "rules" everywhere but it's just normal hostel stuff that anyone would expect. I'd definitely recommend

Kariok Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The guy working evenings was really nice. The lobby area is considerably more modern than the room. The room was basic but you wouldn't want anything more. It was clean. It's a 5 min walk to the tube station is good. The kitchen facilities were good but the oven temperamental. The wifi doesn't work widespread which was particularly annoying. Breakfast was a good Brazilian breakfast. Information about rio wasnt very forthcoming

Discovery Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Excellent. Can't fault it. All staff speak English. Really good atmosphere. 2 mins to Gloria tube station. Can organise tours easily. Nice breakfast. Great kitchen. Cable tv. If you wanted to the staff went to a Friday night lapa street party. Much safer. They organised a night to a club while we were there. Obviously you don't have to but nice to have the option. Sad to stay in rio and have to change hostels because of availability. Would certainly recommend and stay there again! 10/10
