Hostal Moai, Montanita, Ecuador
10.0
29th Jul 2017

Rarely does a hostal feel like a home, but Moai is a really special place. We extended three times because it's so friendly, welcoming, and fun. Montañita can be a bit crazy, and Moai is perfect: 50m from the beach and just removed from the loudness of town. Downstairs (near my third favorite hammock) it's wonderfully social. Everyone is talking, playing guitar or cards, while the staff and volunteers chat and pour cocktails. Up on the terrace is a quiet place to relax. Thanks for everything! xo

Great location, comfortable rooms, hot showers (almost all the time) and fast laundry for 1.50/ kg. The common space is small, covered with a fireplace, but it's open air. With the unpredictable weather in Baños it would have been nice to have a comfortable indoor space to retreat to when it rains, but you won't find that here. Overall nice and met our needs.

Hostal La Posada Colonial, Quito, Ecuador

21st Jul 2017

The location, near La Ronda, is nice. Some people might prefer the area around Mariscal Sucre more but it depends on what you're looking for. The hostal itself is a beautiful old building with a great view from the terrace. Not a social place, but nice for our stay.

Everyone there is so friendly and helpful. The breakfast is huge. They go out of their way to take care of you. Perfect location, nice atmosphere. Only issue is that the bathrooms are limited, which was evident in the morning but seemed fine other times. Warm water was nice.

Jesús is wonderful. He's incredibly helpful, knowledgeable about the town, tours, buses, restaurants - you name it. There were some minor mishaps during our stay, outside of anyone's control, but he went above and beyond to take care of it.

Perfect location near tons of bars and restaurants. Fun bar that makes it easy to meet people without being a party hostel. The showers are really nice. There are no lockers in the rooms though, but they do offer plastic lockers in the shared bathrooms.

The location is perfect, the square outside is full of life every evening. Though the kitchen is small and they would benefit from an additional bathroom, I would definitely recommend this hostel and this neighborhood.

Playa del Ritmo, Santa Marta, Colombia

If you're just looking for beach access this is your place. The beach is perfect, good food and drinks, but the problem is it's very isolated. It's like the all inclusive resort of hostels. It's a five minute walk to a 20 minute bus (or 10 minute taxi) to downtown Santa Marta, or you can walk along the beach to more expensive hotels. Overall the beach is the real attraction for this place. If you want more than the ocean, get a place in Santa Marta. If you want quiet waterfront, then stay here.

Hi, its good to know that you enjoyed our food, drinks and our Beach, about the location we are in a very exclusive area in Santa Marta for that reason you cannot find a lot of things around, but malls and supermarkets are 5 to 8 minutes from the hostel, you can take a bus or a taxi also we are Close to the highway there everyone can easly transport to averywhere in Santa Marta. Thank you for share your opinion with us and we send you the best energy for the rest of your travel.

Great hostel with a really wonderful staff. They go out of their way to make it easy for guests to enjoy a beach day even after checking out. I'd give it a perfect score but I found my 8 bed mixed dorm to be a little cramped. Overall, I highly recommend this hostel.

This hostel is so much fun and the facilities are gorgeous. I stayed here for a few days before and after the full moon party and I would highly recommend it. The pool and bar area right on the beach leads to some really stunning views. We had a blast here getting ready for the fmp with everyone getting painted and drinking. More than anything the staff is what really makes this place wonderful, especially Paul. They went above and beyond to help out and make sure everything was perfect.

Very nice facilities here, really clean and modern and in a perfect location in Sukhumvit. Not a party hostel, but you're in Bangkok so a party isn't too hard to find.

You won't find any social atmosphere here. The shower in my room was also positioned in such a way that you had to stand/sit on the toilet to take a shower. That said it is in a fantastic location and the staff were friendly and helpful.

First and foremost: Stay in Sukhumvit if you're traveling to Bangkok. The location is perfect, tons to explore in the area and a short walk from both the skytrain and the subway. The hostel is fantastic. There's a bar and common area where you can always find people drinking and socializing. They gave me a self-guided one day walking tour itinerary and I highly recommend it. Take the ferry in the nearby canal and it's an experience in itself. And street food. Loved this place.

It was so much fun to stay at Fata Morgana. I'll miss Cool Guy and Suzie (two members of the K-9 greeting committee) and the other animals and donkeys hanging out within the grounds. I definitely recommend this hostel.

Overall a beautifully designed hostel with a wonderful staff. Full disclosure: they don't have a Jacuzzi anymore. It's frustrating to expect something listed in their description and to not have it exist. Knew that was too good to be true. I'd stay somewhere cheaper next time.
