Phuket Hostel

Phuket, Thailand

You get what you pay for. We got a very hot and noisy private room. The hostel is far from everything, and between two noisy roads. As this is not a tourist part of town, there are next to no taxis or tuk tuks. I asked reception where I could hail a taxi, and she told me she will order one for me for 300 baht. I said no thanks as the ride should only cost 100 to where I was going. She then refused to tell me where I could hail a taxi. We ended up walking down the road and a nice lady helped us.

Great hostel. Definitely the best on Isla Mujeres and alot of fun. Only problem was the wifi was terrible. Beyond bad. All day and night and I stayed there a week and tried it on both routers all over the hostel. I used wifi in other places around the island it they were perfect.

Bad bathrooms in my dorm. Missing a sink. No toilet paper. TO use the shower you need to press a button, but it only lasts like 2 seconds, so you have to press the button every 2 seconds.

Mexico City Hostel

Mexico City, Mexico

Huge hostel and clean and modern. I had one big problem though. This hostel has ZERO atmosphere. There is no bar (they have ample space on the roof for one), and its so big it does not promote meeting other travellers. Every night the TV room is the only place to meet other people, but everyone is generally bored out of their minds and on their cellphones and not talking. No music, no bar, nothing. I had to go around the corner to another hostel to meet other people.

Great vibe and excellent staff. I think they were in the process of cleaning the place up. However i could not give a better review as the bathrooms were terrible and often dirty. Also the hostel is like 15minutes walk from the beaches. Definitely fun and friendly though!

Jungle Party Hostal

Antigua, Guatemala
54%

Very bad internet, was not working for most of my stay, and they turn it off between 6-10pm every day with the excuse 'buy a drink at the bar'. My bed was a mattress on the floor in the 20 person dorm. It's hot and noisy and everyone is sleeping on mattresses on the floor. Seems to be 1 locker between 2 which is not ideal for solo travelers. 3 tiny toilets and 3 showers with no shelves for soap for the whole hostel. As a long term traveler, I have to say that this was a bad hostel. Staff good

The staff were very friendly here. We went out almost every night with some of them. The hostel is in a great location very near Copacabana beach. Had a few midnight swims. Would definitely recommend staying near the beach rather than in Lapa area.

Pura Vida Hostel

Tamarindo, Costa Rica
91%

Good hostel. Has a nice central area with lots of tables, hammocks and chairs to socialize. Has two kitchens, a ping pong table that doubles for flipcup and beerpong and friendly, helpful staff. Only thing lacking was toilets out of the dorm rooms (each dorm has a private toilet), and each night we had to turn out the lights in the common area by 11pm. Overall a great hostel and i made many friends here. If i was heading back to tamarindo, pura vida would def be my #1 choice.
