Other people really seemed to like this hostel. Me on the other hand, not so much of a fan... I have been to nicer hostels in better locations closer to the central part of San Telmo. The showers I didn't like... There was no place to change and there was always water on the floor of the toilets. There is a library which is cool. Staff were helpful enough. Bunk beds were comfortable with ladders for the top bunk.

La Lechuza Hostel Rosario

Rosario, Argentina
77%

I liked this hostel, I recommend it. The owner is very sociable and likes to joke with guests. The female staff member who welcomed me to the hostel was also very friendly. The beds were comfortable, but if you want a bit more room, I recommend not staying in the larger mixed dorm. When I stayed in this hostel there was big conference happening in Rosario, so there was no beds available for the weekend, but the staff left me hanging by saying there was a bed for me when in fact there was not

La Covacha Hostel

Salta, Argentina

Great owner and staff, and a very homely hostel. I recommend this hostel. But be warned, top bunks have no ladders (which makes it hard to get up), 4 lockers for a 6 room dorm, and the showers are not so straight forward - if the hot water doesn't come out, try playing with the shower head.

I went to this hostel in down season, and it was crowded with a good atmosphere. The dorms were comfortable. Big kitchen. It was not too far from the city centre. They organise tours. I recommend this hostel.

I really like this hostel! It is clean and I met a lot of nice people here. The only downside is that the staff seem to change a lot and they never know who you are, and also they don't organize events in the hostel. But the staff are helpful, and now all the answers to your questions. Also if you're a girl, don't stay in room 13 on the top bunk, its noisy. And the sheets never stay on the bed, which really annoys me. But all in all, I recommend hostel on location, cleanliness and for meeting p

Macanudo Hostel

This hostel is great! Its is new and clean, with lots of space. The owners have really thought out how they want to hostel to be, I.e the dorms are very spacious with big bunk beds, and lockers under the beds. There still a few bits that need improving, I.e. the hostel has no sign out the front yet, but the owners are working on it. I really recommend this place! Especially because it is clean.

This hostel is popular, people were very social. The owners are very friendly. But for some reason I got bites all over me when I stayed in this hostel, but I was the only one. But it made my experience there not so enjoyable. But I recommend this hostel as I was the only person who had this problem, the hostel is clean.

Tas D'Viaje Hostel

Punta del Este, Uruguay

This hostel would be really cool in high season but I was there in low season and it was very quiet. The location is great, right on the peninsular near the beach. The hostel has bikes and other things for rent which is fun. The lounge room facilities were good, with lounges and a TV. The shower facilities and dorms were pretty ordinary to me, but no worse then other hostels. Overall I would recommend this hostel.

Caballo Loco Hostel

Montevideo, Uruguay

This hostel was nice and comfortable. It wasn't really like what it said in the reviews though. I didn't meet a lot of people and the environment was a bit boring (but not the hostels fault). The male staff members were helpful, but the female staff weren't very friendly to me. The facilities at this hostel are nice, lots of places to sit and big kitchen. There were a lack of power points though. Overall a good hotel, I recommend it.

The staff were nice, spoke Engkish, and were helpful. The dorm was pretty small and had no space for my bag, but I am used to this. There is fruit at breakfast if you get in early. The bathroom facilities were good, and the hostel was generally clean.

Freedom Hostel - MG

I loved "Mamma" and "Pappa", the owners of the hostel. They make staying in their hostel an unforgetable experience! Breakfast was good and the dorms were comfortable. I will also never forget my welcome! Before I was checked it, I was invited next door to try the best cachaca I have ever tasted. And on my second day they booked me in for a free tour with a neighbouring hostel! The only complaint I have is there are only two showers, but I loved the place so much it didn't matter.

Vila Madalena Hostel

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Generally this is a nice hostel. It has some nice features... A common area with TV, big shower, and a bar open to the public with imported beer. Also its in a nice area. However I recommend not staying in the 12 room dorm if you want peace. It was noisy with people coming and going at all hours, shuffling around in their lockers, and dropping things in the middle of the night. The smaller dorms upstairs looked more comfortable and had the lockers outside, which is probably less noisy.

As you know If you pay a little more you can stay in the 8 bed dorm. Look like your points doesn't correspond with your staying. You told us all the time we are your best hostel have you ever been. Thanks for all comments!

Geckos Hostel

The cheaper dorms don't have aircon, so don't book them when a heatwave is going on, its unbearable. Although they did swap me in to an air conditioned room when I requested at no extra charge, however the air con was very loud. The location was good, but its in a residential area so we had to be quiet after 10pm.

Hi NIcole.This has been the hottest summer of the century in Brasil, so it is hot everywhere there is not AC.We have 2 more AC dorms.You could tell me that it was to noisy for you, i would have moved to an other one.Please, be informed that keep silence after 10 pm is not an hostel rule, but a brazilian law that has to be respeceted every where and in every hostel.Here everybody has a lot of fun in our pool and out door area till 10 pm, then goes to one of the many nice bars or clubs of the area

Casa Azul Hostel

This hostel was nice, the staff friendly and the bar downstairs very cool. They don't lie when they say this hostel is well known... When I spoke to locals and they asked where I was staying, and I said a hostel, they automatically asked "CasaAzul?" When I was there it was rather quiet and very hot! But the rooms are rather cosy and bed comfortable, and there is a nice kitchen and shared area upstairs.

This hostel was comfortable and had a great location. The staff were average. I was dissapointed to leave when they did not have any vacancy on the weekend as it was a nice place to stay. They provide lockers and give you keys to access the building.

Hostel Campo Grande

Campo Grande, Brazil

Don't stay in this "hostel" (its really a hotel from the stone ages and lost its HI membership). It may seem ok from a distance, I.e. good breakfast and pool, but my room was horrid. It was hot inside, there was no toilet paper, the tap in my bathroom didn't work (and nothing was done about it), and I suspect there were flees or bed bugs, because I had them jumping all over me after I left! The hotel is in a bad area and their tours have a bad rep in Campo Grande.

The location is fantastic and the property beautiful, but the room was cramped, there was no ladder for the top bunk, and they only provided a blanket and not a sheet for the bed. Also there was no locker to secure my important processions. The staff were friendly and helped when they could, but sometimes were unhelpful when it came to providing information about tours and activities to do at the falls. Breakfast was great.

This is my second time in this hostel, and it's still great. Its the location and the people that make this place. Its right on the beautiful Barra da Logao, and there is always something to do (at least when I was there in Spring). Its a very social hostel and I went out every night I was there and made lots of friends. Its a guaranteed good time.
