A good functional hostel to stay for a couple of nights. Close to the city centre, night markets, bars and restaurants. The beds were comfy and air-conned during the night but the rooms (I stayed in an 8-person dorm) were tiny so that it was quite tricky to get anything out of the bag when you were alone. Impossible with seven other people in the room.
A young friendly hostel. Very close to the night markets and the town centre. Lots of young travellers hanging out here.
It is a great hostel and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone. When I stayed there it had just opened and it didn't have any communal areas to chill, but the guys in the hostel were working very hard to create a cozy cafe downstairs. I imagine it will be finished very soon and it will look fantastic. All staff very friendly.
Kamin Bird is a good hostel to stay in Bangkok that provides excellent value for money. It is conveniently located approx 10 minutes walk from a tube station. The rooms are clean and air-conditioned with comfortable beds and free towels changed daily. The owners Ying and herJapanese husband are fantastically helpful. Within a walking distance there are shops and eating places serving affordable and tasty thai meals.
A had a fabulous week at The Art Beach, and Camila and Mariana were fantastic hosts. The location is perfect for surfers, about 10 minutes walk from the best surfing beach in Buzios. The high street with shops and cafes and other beaches are also easy to get to by a mini bus which departs about 100 yards from the hostel, every minute or so throughout the day and night.
The hostel is right on the Copacabana beach within a walking distance to Ipanema. The staff were fantastic - super helpful. I would happily stay there again.
It was a fantastic hostel, the best I stayed in South America. Full of character, with log fires in the communal area as well as the bedroom. The owner was super helpful. I would happily stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
I enjoyed my stay at Mamatierra. The staff are friendly and helpful, and speak English. The breakfast is delicious and you can make yourself tea, coffee or hot chocolate throughout the day. There are also good cooking facilities and a fridge for those who wish to cook. The rooms are nice and clean with a nice sunny patio. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the high street and it is safe to walk after dark.
I was very happy with this hostel. I stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. It was very clean and the staff were extremely helpful. I was able to leave some of my luggage for a few days when I did a trip to the Galapagos. The hostel is located equal distance from the old town, which is lovely, and the new bit of Quito. I will add that my room was overlooking a fairly busy road.
