Base Camp Antigua

Antigua, Guatemala

Good hostel with nice helpful staff, rooms are also nice and bathrooms do the job. Showers a bit average but the breakfast made up for it with yummy eggs beans etc. A nice chilled hostel.

Pariwana Hostel Cusco

Cusco, Peru

One of the best hostels we've stayed at during 4 months around SA. Good Atmosphere, good partying (if you want it) quiet enough around the hostel to sleep and food in the bar is really good. Only downsides are the provided breakfast which is pretty pathetic for a big hostel like this - bread, jam and coffee. No juice/fruit etc. The other thing would be the check in/out staff - noone seems to want to do the check outs and on 3 occasions we were told to come back in 15min. ping pong makes it ok

Kantaya Hostel

Puno, Peru

Some staff were nice, but some very rude. Breakfast was not stocked up and when asked if we could have some juice, we had to ask 3 times and after 20min she came and filled up half the jug. Hairs in the shower as if it was never cleaned and no atmosphere. Beds were uncomfy but on a plus side the internet was good!

Hostel Encantadas Ecologic

Ilha do Mel, Brazil

This place is pretty average, internet didn't work, kitchen is very small and pokey and the owner doesn't speak much English. No breakfast but the owner did cut up some fruit for us one day randomly. Not bad, just not great.


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A nice hostel in a good location. Staff didn't have the best English and weren't the friendliest we've had on our trip. Kitchen is excellent and rooftop area is a nice touch. Not a bad place, but lacking atmosphere. Breakfast is good with fresh juice that you crush yourself and the standard breads/hams etc.

Barra Beach Club Oceanfront Hostel

Florianopolis, Brazil

This place would have to be up there with the best hostels we have stayed at. Great atmosphere, excellent kitchen and asado, free cocktail everynight, monkeys in the trees and a beach about a 1 min walk away! Only problem there is no surf here, you need to catch the bus around to Mole, but they do have boards and heaps of other things to take at no cost - bat & balls/ soccer balls etc. A MUST STAY hostel!

Hi Adam! Thanks for your really nice review. We are happy you enjoyed your time here! About your comment that there is no surf here. Every year dozens of beaches close to surfing on the island of Florianopolis , due to a strict fishing season that starts the 15th of May till the 1st of July. Barra da lagoa is one of those beaches. Barra gets great surf for beginners and intermediate surfers. This is why we have 15 surfboards of various types for everyone to use. Thanks again and take care, Jim

Mango Chill

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

A great hostel located really close to the bus station. The manager Manu and his staff are super friendly and will help you organise a perfect day at the falls telling you everything you need to know. The town is nice to walk around and I would recommend staying here instead of on the Brazilian side. No kitchen is probably the only negative thing, but there is a great Mexican place down the road on the same side as the bus station which is super cheap and super nice. Hostel also does great food!

Eco Pampa Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Great hostel in a really good location. The managers are really friendly and will help you with anything you need. A great place in BA to stay! Only negative thing is the kitchen is very small (located under a stairwell) and no pans have handles, no utensils etc. I burnt myself a number of times trying to take pots off the stove as there is not even a tea towel in there. So as long as you don't mind the average kitchen, its a good place!

Hostel Mora Mendoza

Mendoza, Argentina

Not a bad hostel, but rooms are VERY dated, lockers are very average and hardly lock, and the bunk beds are creaky and small. Of course, the breakfast is awesome and the staff are good, there is a good Asado out the back for your use and the hostel runs lots of good tours. They just need to update the rooms. Bathrooms are a bit small and dirty and are in need of a renovation.... Surprised at the high rating this place gets...

Hostal del Centro Santa Cruz

Santa Cruz, Chile

A great place to stay, clean rooms and right in town, with an easy walk form the bus station. You can walk to a beautiful winery which enjoyed more than Mendoza, Argentina! Owner is great, speaks good English and is there to help you in every way! More like a BnB than a hostel, thanks again.


Really enjoyed the Hostel itself, but the location wasn't the best. Stayed in the private double room which was a good size and good value for money. Private en suite (located across from the room) was good and clean with updated fittings. Staff were friendly and relaxed, only some spoke english. Ended up staying at the sister hostel in Pichilemu (Punta De Lobos) which was absolutely amazing, a must go to for every backpacker! Check it out!

Venice Beach Hostel

Los Angeles, USA

Not a great hostel, but in a good location for Venice Beach. Rooms are a bit average, nothing worth talking about. Breakfast was good, with Waffles. Wifi a bit dodgy too. Prob wouldn't stay here again, but an okay place.
