7th Jun 2016

I have stayed at this hostel several imes. It is always very clean and quiet. All of the receptionists are very friendly and helpful. They include breakfast in the room price. I wish there was a male only dorm but maybe there are not enough rooms for that. The staff will help you with onlward travel or tours. Very nice hostel. Excellent location.

Actually, I had to cancel my trip to Rome. I e-mailed the hostel in advance and they were very quick and polite in canceling my reservation with no charge. I plan a trip later and will book with them again.

Nice hostel in good location. Would be nice if there was a kitchen guests could use just to get hot water or fix something to eat. Or, at least put out a thermos of hot water that is always available for guest to make coffee or tea with. Very helpful staff.

Can't think of anything that was not good. Don't like taking shoes off to enter, but that's just me. I find it annoying, but a lot of places in Asia do that. Enjoyed the stay in the 4-bed dorm. Comfortable and quiet. Showers clean and location great. Good front desk staff. Thanks for a good place in Siem Reap at a good price!

Viejamar Surf Hostel, Puerto Lopez, Ecuador

15th Aug 2014

Had a great time here. Stayed longer than I booked. The place is right on the beach and out of the noisy town or Puerto Lopez. Rodrigo, the owner, has built the hostel himself through the years. He gives surf lessons (which I missed) and even took us into town one night to buy a bus ticket. He is fun to be around and very helpful. He cooked a bbq dinner for all of us one night. His staff is great including the two volunteer staff, Silvia and Heidi. Good breakfast and nice atmosphere.

Nothing to find fault with here for me. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Good information for where to go and what to see. I liked staying here in the Old Town part of Quito. I stayed i the 6 bed dorm. Very good value for the money. Coffee and tea all day long. Breakfast and dinner are very good and at a good price. It's a young crowd and always something going on but you can also sleep at a reasonable hour. Well run hostel.

Nice hostel. The place is well designed. The bathrooms are separated for men and women and have enough toilets and showers available. Kept clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Location is right at the old market, very good. I stayed in the dorm room and most nights the lights were on until midnight or later and people talking. Time for room lights out and quiet should be enforced. Each bed has own light that could be kept on. Lockers large but not secure. Could pull door open after locked.

Nice door room and easy to sleep here. The breakfast was good. You could order from several choices. Coffee and tea all day. The location was good, also. Met some nice backpackers there. I took a two day trip to Bromo but had already paid for the bed for the night. They just moved the payment to the next night when I would be back, saving me paying for the night I would be away. Very helpful. Not all hostels will work with you this way. Lockers were provided for your valuables.

The owner makes the place work! Howard enjoys his hostel and the guests there. He takes anyone that wishes to go on a bike ride in the evenings and then to a local place to eat. Great location and good place to stay in Malaka. I had a fan room and stayed comfortable without air. I am not a person that likes air-con, though, so it might be different with someone else. The room only locked with the room key, no hasp to add your own lock and no lockers is why I gave the security as good.

Clean hostel and good lockers in the dorm room for each bed. The pool and bar area downstairs is good for those wishing to meet other backpackers. The balcony areas are roomy and nice but the street traffic is noisy. However, the room I was in on the 3rd floor was always quiet for sleeping. Very well run hostel.
