Posada la Gordita

Leon, Nicaragua

Monica was the most fantastic host, cooking us the most delicious breakfast both mornings and treating us to iced coffee during the day. The place itself isn't finished and our room was a little dingy but it was great value for money and would definitely stay here again!

thank you for the review! We are still waiting on ordered artwork, and some furnishings to complete the place, I hope the hospitality and atmosphere of the house made up for what is lacking. I hope you come back again and see how we are improving every day!

Great hosel in an awesome spot and with great facilities! Free pancake breakfast and all day coffee was a big bonus!

Drop Bear Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

We ended up staying for over a week, the place was so relaxing that we found it hard to leave- there is an awesome tv room and swimming pool! Gabriel who runs the joint is great, gave us a wonderful tour of the house and told us about the history of the area. He is full of good advice about places to visit around the area too! Only downside- bedrooms and bathrooms not very clean!


The hostel was fine for what we paid for it. The showers were mostly warm, the bathrooms mostly clean (although never any toilet paper), rooms were average but comfortable enough although they were below freezing so if you plan on staying here pack your thermal undies and hand warmers. Also beware of the lady that serves breakfast, her reception is even colder than the room itself!

Villa Melgar

Arequipa, Peru

The hostel was very clean but I would day it's more of a hotel than a hostel as there were no common facilities and we ate breakfast on a tray in our room. Breakfast was ordinary, just bread and jam, and the room was really unfinished with cables for a tv but no tv, no lamps above the beds and no hooks for hanging towels. Very basic rooms! Staff were wonderful though, there is one guy who speaks English really well and is so helpful. If it weren't for him, the hostel would be below average.

Hostal Cruz de Popayan

Sucre, Bolivia

The room itself was very large and very clean although we had an ensuite which didn't have a shower curtain so water went everywhere and it became quite smelly. The staff were incredibly rude and unhelpful. We were wanting to stay for a few weeks and learn Spanish but we decided to go elsewhere because they were so unfriendly. Also, breakfast was very ordinary. Two bread rolls and a teaspoon of jam per person. Do the maths- it's not quite enough. And don't even bother asking for more!


Our room was large and the bed was comfortable, just what we needed after a tour of the salt flats! The bathroom was quite new, very clean and the showers were super hot. Breakfast was the only let down, a very basic meal of one bread roll with jam and tea and coffee.

Nature Hostel

Pucon, Chile

Gina who runs the hostel is an absolute gem, she was so kind and welcoming and we felt right at home. We were only planning on staying for 3 nights but ended up staying for 10!! Loved it!


Cordoba, Argentina

Nice, clean hostel with friendly, informative staff. Location was not great though and we didn't love Cordoba itself but it was good to see anyway and we felt very comfortable staying here during our trip!

Hostel Kalifornia

Rosario, Argentina

It was ok but not very clean and tidy and very noisy. There was a loud doorbell that went off all night!
