Bedbunkers Hostel #1

Kuta, Indonesia
77%

Very clean and nice hostel, very helpful and friendly staff. Set away from the centre of Kuta, so if you're not after that 'Magaluf' vibe, this is a good place to stay until you move on. On the downside, it is very tiny and consequently quite cramped. The three-storey bunk beds are ridiculously high and there isn't very much space in the dorms for backpacks etc. A decent place to stay for a night or two before moving on or going to the airport.

Big Hostel

Sydney, Australia
83%

Nice hostel, friendly helpful staff. Big open kitchen area and communal tables & sofas etc. The only downside I found to this hostel was it seemed to be mainly full of people staying long-term, looking for work or working in Sydney. Not the hostels fault but it did lack a bit of atmosphere because of this and the long-term people tended to stay in their own groups - made it more difficult and less fun to meet other 'travelers' in the hostel. Still a good place to be based in Sydney.

Hi Victoria, I totally agree, winter means we let guests stay longer term to work in the cold season and when it gets a bit quiet in Sydney- it does change the dynamics a little in these months and summer shows fresh waves of people daily- not sure how to combat this for off peak season but I thank you for the feedback as we do discuss guest feedback on a regular basis :) regards Hellen (general manager)

Great place for a night or two when just arriving or going back to the airport. A much cheaper alternative to Smugglers Cove, but that place is still just a few doors down if you want the restaurant or internet etc. Very friendly, helpful staff and great to have a personal pick up from the airport!

Nomads Fat Camel Hostel

Auckland, New Zealand
83%

Not a bad hostel for city centre Auckland. Really friendly, helpful staff & liked the layout of the apartment style rooms. The evening meal is a nice extra but it seems like a lot to upgrade for 8 dollars (with a drink) when at the Nomads in Wellington you can upgrade for just 2 dollars! The only thing that lets this place down is the bar - it could be full of backpackers in the evening but instead they play random, thumping music at dinner time and it just gets worse from then on.

Really lovely hostel, not too far from the center of Santiago, can easily walk into the main area. Really helpful, friendly staff, clean rooms and super-big comfy beds! Great kitchen and cooking facilities and a lovely lounge / communal area for chilling out and socialising. Would stay here again!

I ended up not staying at this hostel. After many months of dorm rooms I wanted a couple of nights break with a room to myself so I could spread out and sort out my things. I booked two nights in a private room and arrived on the day to check in. The reception staff told me they hadn´t looked at the reservations and so didn´t have the room I had booked available. I would have to stay in a 3 bed dorm for the first night and then move to the private room the next day. I went back to Kokopelli...

Nice, welcoming hostel. Booking was moved back twice with no notice (by me) due to the roadblocks in Bolivia and the hostel fine about it, no penalty charges or problems. Small but nice, good social area for meeting other travellers, kitchen facilities could be better but Puno is full of good places to eat and is really just a place to pass through. Would stay here again if I came back this way.

Hotel Utama

Copacabana, Bolivia
77%

Nice hotel - decided to have a couple of nights with my own room rather than a hostel. Nice enough but for the price you can get a cheaper room at Colonial hostel in the centre of Copacabana with a tv too (which Utama didn't have). Beware, the hotel closes it's doors at 11pm - can{t get in or out and they don't tell you this when you arrive!! (Not uncommon for Copacabana though, many do this - although there is at least one in town that has 24 hour access).

Loki Backpackers La Paz

Excellent hostel, spacious rooms, lively bar, breakfast until 1pm, nice food and free tea all day. Helpful staff, but the most disorganised booking/check-in system ever! Make sure you tell them when you will arrive or you risk losing your booking! I arrived in the morning and told them I was here, then went on a city tour and when I got back my booking was gone! They were helpful and did fit me in and aside from this it was a really great hostel. Would definitely stay here again.

Hostal Cruz de Popayan

Sucre, Bolivia
80%

Nice, if a little soul-less hostel, altho I only stayed 1 night so might just be that. Spacious rooms, memoryfoam beds (not recommemnded if you dont like a soft mattress!) clean & hot showers. Reception staff didnt speak English, but all the notices are in English. 2 negatives - communal areas are surrounded by the rooms, so if people sit out talking late, you can hear them pretty clearly in the rooms. Also, rooms could do with some proper curtains! Can see straight in when the lights are on!

Slightly odd hostel - didn´t see many other guests except at breakfast, feels like there just happen to be rooms at the restaurant! Simple accommodation, small, clean rooms and hot showers. Wifi didn´t work at all, but this seems to be common across Bolivia. Staff do not speak English, so brush up your Spanish to stay here! The owner speaks a little English and all the staff are really helpful despite the language barrier. They organised a mine tour from the hostel and booked a taxi to Sucre

Hostel is right in the centre of Uyuni, close to tour offices and the bus station. Really friendly and helpful English speaking staff, huge comfortable beds and clean bathrooms with hot water. Common room with tv and a really cool bar joined on that serves excellent fresh pizza - perfect after 3 days in the desert and salt flats. Would definitely stay here again if passing through Uyuni!

Backpackers San Pedro

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
83%

This hostel is a short walk from the town centre but it´s such a small place that this is not much of an issue. The map they send you on booking is really useful. Really nice English speaking receptionist, very helpful for any questions or issues. Good working wifi, comfortable beds and keys for the dorms and the outer door. No breakfast, but I guess most people would miss it anyway as the tours leave at some very early times. There are two little shops just around the corner and a nice kitchen

Sol Huasi

Salta, Argentina
89%

Nice friendly hostel, staff are really helpful and there is a 24 hour reception if you arrive in the middle of the night, as I did. It´s worth knowing, that the doors are locked overnight and you have to buzz to get in - the buzzer is on the outer doorframe, not next to the inner door - which I found just as I was having visions of spending the night on the doorstep! Excellent location right next to the main square. Sociable hostel, but also quiet if you are getting up early for tours.

Sabatico Travelers Hostel

Really nice hostel. Friendly, English speaking staff, really helpful. Good location, just off the main avenue, can walk to most places but not far from bus routes and the metro. Clean rooms and bathrooms - not many showers for son may people but I never had a problem getting one. Lots of info on tours and things to do. Nice kitchen to use and good breakfast.

Rayuela Hostel Boutique

Buenos Aires, Argentina
71%

No real major complaints about this hostel, staff are helpful and hostel is clean. Rooms are a bit stuffy, no real ventilation. Only two bathrooms for so many people can be a bit of a problem if you're in a hurry to leave. No one on reception from 10 until 8, so if you need a taxi early or anything it can be difficult. Nice location to reach places but at night can be a bit dodgy of you are walking back or arrive late at night. If you do arrive late let them know so they will be there.

Ukelele Hostel

Really nice, clean hostel in a beautiful old building. Reception staff were very helpful and spoke good English. Lots of room in the dorms - like having your own bedroom compared to some hostels that cram you in! A fairly quiet hostel, not much going on, although I only stayed for one night, so that might have just been a quiet day!

Great hostel, especially if you are looking for somewhere out of the city. Right on the bus routes though, so easy to get everywhere. Staff are amazing and go out of their way to help you, it's more like staying in a family home than a hostel. Loved this place!

Really nice hostel, very helpful and friendly staff. Nice communal area with tv an computer, although can get a bit cosy if there a few people around! Would have been nice to have some fruit or maybe some cheese at breakfast - mostly sweet things and biscuits. Great hostel though, would stay here again.

Paraty Beach Hostel

Great social little hostel, in a Greg location. The owner, Gus, will do anything to help you out. Smaller dorms are quite cramped, too many beds in a small room! Go for the big dorm - you get more space and the lockers are all in that room. Nice open communal area and great all you can eat BBQs in the evening.

Mata Virgem Hostel

Ilha Grande, Brazil
43%

When I arrived the hostel had clearly taken more bookings than they had rooms. This happened to 4 other people on the same day as me and many more that arrived in the next few days. They eventually founds us a room but crammed us all in together, despite the fact that some peopl had booked a private room. Wouldn't stay here unless there was no where else - if you just want a bed then fine but for the prices they charge it's pretty ridiculous.

Discovery Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Possibly the best backpacker hostel I have ever stayed in, certainly the friendliest. As soon as I arrived Enrique and the team made me feel very welcome, took the time to show me personally around the hostel, as they do with every new guest. Really nicely laid out, very clean and new looking and with possibly the most comfortable bunks ever! Real traveller-family feel to the hostel, I was travelling alone and felt like part of the group in no time at all. Great breakfast and lovely kitchen.
