Stayed in a private room, which was more than spacious. The facilities, beds, etc. are great and new. The staff is nice and helpful. During my time at the hostel, there hadn't been many people around in the evening, which was kind of pitty. But all in all a good hostel, though it seems to be a calmer one.
Unfortunately just stayed three nights, but really liked the hostel and had a good time there. Juan and his girlfriend are great and they do an awesome job. Really, thank you guys. It's a bit of a walk to the main centre but that's totally manageable. Beside, the hostel is clean and comfy. Also met some fun people there. One thing, Juan, think of mirrors in the bathrooms. Not a problem though, but kind of not typical. ;)
Great Hostel in Poblado. The location is awesome close to parque lleras, where the nightlife takes place. The hostel is pretty new and clean. The staff is awesome, helped me with all my questions. The hostel also has a bar which isn't too busy, but okay to get to know some of the people staying at the hostel. So met some cool people there. Definitely recommend the hostel.
Just stayed one night for Machu Picchu, like most of the people there. Therefore the hostel is perfect. They offer early basic breakfast, which is appreciated before going to Machu Picchu. The rooftop bar is quite nice, but obviously not busy because everybody wants to get up early, but for a beer before going to bed a really good choice. They also store your belongings if you want to. Rooms are clean and beds comfy but unfortunately in our room the shower was cold.
Pariwana is a good choice to stay in Cusco. It's clean, great facilities, comfy beds, lockers with power plugs, restaurant and a great location near the main plaza. I also could leave my backpack there, while staying one night in Aguas Calientes. Unfortunately it's a bit too big for good socializing, because people don't gather that much together, just too many options. Still it's not impossible to get to know other travelers there.
Stayed there for new years eve and it was awesome. I really liked Wildrover, it has a good atmosphere. One of the best things is the patio with the pool to relax and hang around. The hostel got a good size concerning the socializing aspect, and especially in the small bar during the evening parties it is easy to get to know people. Staff is great, beds are comfy, all in all clean, wouldn't stay in another hostel in Arequipa.
Pariwana is well located in Miraflores, one of the best areas in Lima. The hostel offers everything you need, from comfy beds, clean bathrooms to a restaurant and bar. They also have a travel agency and the staff is nice and knowledgeable. It lacked a bit of the social atmosphere when I was there, but that's usually a bit of a problem of big hostels, although it is not as big as the one in Cusco. But all in all definitely a good joice.
Stayed 4 nights in Sabatico and had a really good time there. They aranged a Christmas BBQ for us which was great and perfect to meet people. Met some great people there with whom I had a really good time. Liked it, that there was not just the younger crowd around. Location is good, in walking distance to San Telmo. The facilities are great, comfy beds, kitchen and rooftop terrace. But best of, is the staff. Thanks to Mercedes for helping me with my postcards. :)
Stayed 4 nights and had a good time at the hostel. Met some great people there with whom it was fun going out. The hostel is perfectly located for nightlife and the bus station. The whole area is very safe. The beds are comfy and all in all the hostel is clean. Unfortunately there are no locals working at the hostel who could provide you with the best informations about the city and what's going on. But would definitely stay there again.
Mango Chill is kind of a special place with a real chilled out atmosphere, where you like to hang around. Stayed in the 16 bed dorm which wasn't too bad although that many people sleep inside. Bathrooms are a bit run down and could need a bit improvement. The staff is really kind and they provide you with all the information about the falls, really awesome. Had a good time there and enjoyed the atmosphere and having some beers with other travellers at the pool.
Just stayed 2 nights in Milhouse. The rooms offer lockers, are big enough and clean, so nothing to complain. The hostel is located in the central, so a lot of places are in walkable distance except Palermo, where you should take the metro. Generally I felt safe. It is a big hostel though and during my stay it lacked a bit of the social atmosphere, maybe because all the parties had been in the Hipo. All in all not a bad joice, but I think more for younger travelers.
Great hostel near everything. Easy to get there by metro from port and airport. Rooms are really new, spacious, clean with air con and lockers. Really good beds as well. Bathrooms are new and clean. Therefore a great hostel. During my stay the common area wasn't used that much so not that easy to meet people, but had great roommates and went out with them. They offered a pub crawl as well, but this definitely needs a bit of improvement. All in all I really enjoyed my stay there.
Good location in Parikia the main town on Paros. Just 5-10 minutes walk from the port. Stayed in a 5 bed dorm with bathroom ensuite. The rooms were nice and clean and with two little terraces. Unfortunately we were not allowed to use the rooftop terrace which seemed to be nice. Met some people there but all in all not that a social hostel at least when I was there. But okay to relax and close to the beaches. All restaurants and bars in Parikia are in walking distance.
Really cheap hostel with 8 euros for a dorm bed. Good to have calm nights because there is no real nightlife around in Perissa. Close to the beach though. Rooms are spacious and clean. Stayed in a 10 bed dorm with shared bathrooms. The shared bathrooms could need a bit improvement but had been clean as well. AC was appreciated. Can't expect more for the money. If you want to stay in a calmer region of Santorini and pay less for your bed, then the hostel is a good choice.
May stay at Francesco's was awesome. The location is perfect, just 2 minutes away from where all the nightlife takes part. During day just take the bus to the beach or stay at the pool area, easy. The staff is beyond, it feels like family, Maria and Elisabeth help you with everything. Just for the hostel did I came back to Ios. Great bar area, where everybody meets before going out, so easy to meet people. Thanks to Francesco's my stay in Ios was a blast and so ended up with 7 nights in total.
Stayed 3 nights at Athens Backpackers. The location of the hostel is good and it is easy to get there. Rooms are basic but do their job and provide lockers, beds are a bit squeaky. Bathrooms could be newer but are generally clean like all of the hostel. But best of the all is definitely the rooftop bar with a great view at the Akropolis. In the evening a lot of people hang around there and it is easy to meet up with other travelers and having a good time together.
Stayed just one night for a stopover. But it was a nice stay. The rooms are spacious with lockers and a light as well as a power point at the bed. Bathrooms ensuite and on the floor. Best of all is the location at the Rocks, this area is the best in Sydney. Have been in Sydney before but hanging around at this area in the evening is great though not that cheap like the hostel as well. Unfortunately I can't say anything about the social aspect of the hostel.
Gilligan's is definitely the party-hostel in Cairns. The bar is the party place to go in Cairns, therefore if you want to go out, you're right at this place. There, you can meet locals as well as backpackers from other hostels. The hostel itself is good as well, nice clean rooms with bathroom ensuite and lockers for your valuables. Although the bar is right next to the hostel the rooms are quiet. But like all big hostels, it is not that social like a small one. Still a good place to stay.
Stayed in a 8 bed deluxe room, which had a bathroom ensuite. The rooms are spacious, clean and with air con. Therefore a very good hostel. Unfortunately you have to pay deposit for everything in the kitchen, so nut just the cutlery, but also for pans, pots and knifes, which is anoying. The hostel has its own bar, which isn't very cheap, therefore not many people did hang around there. Because of the bar, you're not allowed to byo and it is like there is no real common area to meet people.
Relaxed and chilled out atmosphere. The hostel is clean and rooms are basic but unfortunately without AC. But nice common area outside to hang around and meet some people. But definitely not a party hostel.
Stayed two nights in City Backpackers and it was okay. Clean hostel though nothing special. Can't say anything about socialising in the hostel, because I was in Brisbane to meet friends and therefore to me it was just a bed to sleep. But still it is clean, rooms have AC, though they are nothing special at least spacious. Easy to get there from bus station.
A good hostel with a great atmosphere. Great common area where you meet a lot of people, especially in the evening. Had a really good time there and therefore extended my stay from 3 to 5 nights, but still could have stayed longer. All in all the hostel is clean and there is not much you really could complain about. The only thing is, that they have no air conditioning and kind of typically no lockers. The staff is really friendly and booked my surflessons for me. Which was great.
A very good hostel, but not that cheap. Spacious rooms with air conditioning and huge lockers with power plugs, perfect. Very clean as well and easy to get there. Had a good atmosphere at the common area, so easy to meet people. Mixed age of people, when I was there, which was really good. The only complaint, no free wifi.
A good hostel right in the CBD, so relatively easy to get there. The rooms are spacious and clean, especially the beds are really good and have lockers. Free wifi in the common area. But at least when I was there, just very young people seemed to stay in the hostel, so some older ones would have been cool to go out with. In general few activities in the hostel. All in all a fair hostel to stay in, but due to socialising and the very young people I would choose another one next time.
We stayed for 3 nights in a double room. The room was spacious and clean with bathroom ensuite. So nothing to complain and perfect for couples, in a kind of way like a Hotel. The location is perfect, easy to get there and everything in walking distance. So if you look for a calmer hostel, to be on your own, this hostel is perfect. But of course therefore it is not that a social hostel, where you meet a lot of people to go partying.
Stayed 5 nights in Way Histel and had a really good time there. Met cool people there and with them it was a lot of fun. There are different activities in the hostel especially in the evening like Tapas-Tour or of course Pubcrawls. The hostel is clean and very good located. There is a big commen area to hang around. The thing with the lockers is true, i was glad that my padlock worked for this kind of locker, but I had two with me and fortunately one did work.
Had a really good time in Granada and the Oasis. Was supposed to stay 3 nights and ended up with 5. Met great people there and had an amazing time. The tour with Mickey was great, we had so much fun. All in all I can recommend this hostel to everyone, it is clean and good located and as I said some cool activities. Unfortunately the rooms don't have an air conditioning and also the lockers are a bit small. But otherwise nothing to complain.
The hostel is okay to stay in Cadiz and have a bed. It is clean and therefore nothing to complain. But there are too few bathrooms and also no air conditioning in the rooms, which makes it sometimes hard to sleep. My bed squeaked everytime when I moved around. I missed the good atmosphere of other hostels. But as I said before, if you want a bed, calm nights and stay at the beach all day in Cadiz this hostel is fine, but don't expect much more.
Had a good time in the oasis palace and therefore stayed one night longer than planed. The roof terrace is great to hang around and relax, exactly what I needed. The room in which I stayed was big und had my preferred lockers under the bed, where you can put really all your stuff in it. The hostel was clean and all in all I can really recommend it to everyone. The walking-tours offered by the hostel are great, but the pubcrawl wasn't really good. But Seville offers many places to go out.
Great location near downtown area. The rooms are not too big, so sometimes it is a bit difficult with the stuff of all the people. But everything is clean and rooms have got air conditioning, which is great. The free dinner is just great, nearly everbody took part and you got to know all the people. Perfect when you travel alone, because after dinner people go out together. The staff is amazing, they help you with everything, e.g. booked the sagrada familia for me... Had a good time there.
My stay at the Yes Hostel was awesome. The location is great everything in downtown in walking distance. The hostel is super clean, I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and it was that spacious. Free breakfast and for 10 € you can also get an awesome dinner every evening. Great to get to know people! Also a lot of activities like pubcrawls and walking tours. The tour to Sintra was amazing, thank you Luis. But best of all is definitely the staff, thank you guys for the great time in Lisbon.
It was a great time in the oasis. Very clean hostel with a lot of activities. We went out every evening and had a lot of fun. I can definitely recommend this hostel. The Lockers under the bed are big enough to pack your backpack in. Breakfast for 3€, perfect. If you want to meet people and have a good time, stay at the oasis.
