Resort alike. Nice green hostel with a good swimming pool and within 1 minute from the beach (where you can't swim due to its strong currents). It is really about relaxing at the hostel here and to some stuff in its surroundings (like tubing or watching flamengos). Town itself is not that special and it ain't a party hostel either. But for a good chill out, the place to be.

La Tortuga Hostel

Taganga, Colombia
86%

Rooftop terrace gives an amazing view over the town, the bay and the surrounding hills. Staff is friendly and is able yo help you in case of questions. However, I had to attend them to the 10 percent HW payments. The six-dorm is a bit small and gets hot during the night. According to other guests, this is the only room with this problem. Backgarden is nice as well and the two turtles living there are cute. Good atmosphere.

The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

Poolside chilling at this hostel gives you a break from travelling. Staff is funny and friendly. Hostel looks good, beer is cold and the restaurant serves good food at decent prices. Room was nothing special, but did the trick. Hostel has a proximity to Tayrona park and Santa Marta, but latter is not really worth visiting.

Hostel Sue Candelaria

Bogota, Colombia
86%

We stayed four nights. Staff helped us out with questions and problems we had. Room was spacious and clean. First night we stayed at a private which turned out to be an apartment a few blocks down from the hostel. Bar at the hostel is good, although they hold to the firm South-American believe that louder music is better music. However, no problems if you decide to turn down the volume a bit. Breakfast is decent and definitely above South-American hostel standard.

Colombian Hostel

Cali, Colombia
100%

Absolute winner in our 8-month South-America trip. Mauricio, his sister and other staff are the textbook example of hospitality and friendliness. Mauricio took us to his football match and the nightlife. Rooms are very clean, breakfast is good and varies every day. Rooftop terrace is nice, with a beautiful wall painting which is used to explain the city to guests. Mauricio creates an atmosphere that turns suicidals into what the French call bon vivants.

Beautiful location in the city centre. Rooms are spacious, beds ok and bathroom is fine. Well-equipped kitchen, a nice TV-area and a nice relax area. Staff is willing to help you around and the map they provide is useful.

Just stayed there for one night, but hostel does the deal. Good wifi, cold beer, good beds and a friendly staff. Nice if you want to have a relaxed stay in Quito


Hostel Nucapacha

Guayaquil, Ecuador

Just stayed one night as it is located close to the airport. Hostel seems to be located in an upscale area. Facilities and pool looked good, staff was nice, shower one of the best in six months travelling. Only point of improvement would be airconditioning instead of ventilators


Hostal Hogar Cuencano

Cuenca, Ecuador

Nice hostel with friendly owner. At the time of our visit it was quiet both in hostel and the (beautiful) city. Located centrally. One remarkable thing about the hostel is that taps fool you all the time as they close the contrary to what humanity is used to.

Loki Backpackers La Paz

La Paz, Bolivia
86%

Partyhostel packed which is particular popular among Israeli travellers. Rooftop at seventh floor offers a nice view on a part of La Paz, food is good and the private rooms are clean and spacious. Staff was helpful although the fact that it is a backpackers factory makes it a bit unpersonal. Bar is more like a discotheque than a nice bar for a beer and a chat. If you want the latter its Irish-run competitor might be more your thing.


La Covacha Hostel

Salta, Argentina
94%

We had a good stay at this place. The owner, Diego, is a really friendly guy who is capable of making the best asado (bbq) you will have in Argentina. The rooftop terrace is excellent, showers are hot and clean, kitchen is well-equipped. You can walk to the busstation and city centre (although cabs are a cheap alternative).


Hostel Estacion Mendoza

Mendoza, Argentina
63%

Hostel will do for a stopover, but Mendoza has probably better places to offer. When we arrived staff seemed to be uninterested, later one of the guys informed on request about nightlife but tried to push an expensive pubcrawl tour. Rooms and swimming pool were not that clean. Breakfast was really basic like in most hostels in Argentina. Beds were not that comfortable either. Close to busstation but requires a 10 to 15 minute walk to the nightlife area.


Hostal Jacaranda & Home

Valparaiso, Chile
86%

If you're looking for a clean, quiet place with good beds to stay: this is your place. If you're looking for a place with a more social atmosphere, you should look elsewhere. Hostel was really clean, kitchen had nearly everything (with the exception of a lighter). Staff was friendly, but it was not always clear if and where they were present. All major attractions are within a walking distance.


La Casa Roja

Santiago, Chile
83%

Lovely hostel which offers you barstools in the swimming pool. An absolute must :).The hostel is located in the bohemian area Barrio Brazil.The hostel's kitchen is very well-equiped, the bar well-stocked and the swimming pool is clean. They have an own indoor bar and organize several parties/dinners per week. It is very big, so you have to make effort to get into touch with other people. One of those rare places in South America where you can throw toilet paper in the toilet (HAPPY EUROPEAN)


13 Lunas Hostel

Chiloe, Chile

Really nice hostel. The staff was really helpful and organized a nice bring-your-own asado. The vibe is good, but not a noisy party hostel. Location is really convenient as well as it is opposite to the bus station and just a few blocks away from supermarkets. Kitchen is well-equipped and breakfast is decent. Would definitily recommend to stay at this place!


Hostel Keoken

Punta Arenas, Chile

Refurbishing of the hostel was nearly completed when we visited. Place is light, clean and close to the center of Punta Arenas. Staff is friendly and breakfast is decent. Beds are really good, although we booked a double and got two singles.


Hostal de la Laguna

Ushuaia, Argentina
94%

The woman who works in the place is really sweet. It seems that she works 24 hours without losing energy or her smile. She even woke up at 4 at night to be sure that we wouldn't miss the cab. The place is clean, rooms are comfy and the breakfast is good. Only minor negative point might be that the hostel is a 25 minute walk out of the center, but if you don't like walking there is not much sense to be in Ushuaia anyway. Basic understanding of Spanish might be useful in this hostel.

Bom Fim Hostel

Porto Alegre, Brazil
83%

We booked a double bed private in advance, but the hostel didn't know anything about our booking. Private rooms were full so we were offered an empty six-person dorm at a fair discount. Hostel staff was really friendly in getting us around. Hostel is clean, breakfast was basic. There is also a bar that offers some pizza's at reasonable prices, but didn't try it. City center is a 30 minute walk.


Adventure Hostel Paraty

Paraty, Brazil
77%

Nice, clean and quiet hostel in walking distance from the bus terminal and city center. Hostel is small, so for meeting people and partying it is maybe not the best option. Make sure you get the key from the outside door as well. We were locked out after a big night and the owner was not pleased when we knocked the door (although they told us the hostel was open 24 hours). Definately the most competitive priced hostel in Party.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comment. We will apologize for the inconvenience of the keys. We have already solved the problem of the keys, we buy a new lock with a key for each guest to make most secure our hostel.

Second Home Hostel

Istanbul, Turkey
77%

Second Home Hostel is located in the heart of the touristic Sultanahmet area, on a five minute walk to Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. Rooms were clean, breakfast was okay, the staff was helpful and speaks English. Hostel is located at a somewhat noise street. If your prefer the night life and good restaurants over being close to touristic stuff, I would recomment to reside at the northern part of the golden horn in Beyoglu.
