Margouya Patagonia

Puerto Varas, Chile

I visited Puerto Varas in winter and this place was very clean, comfortable and the staff was so helpful. They made sure I had everything I needed. Gave me a lot of advice on the best places to go. The bedroom was great and cosy. Super hot showers. Very cosy living room. Loved the feel of the place, felt like home.

Gonow Family Backpacker

Brisbane, Australia

Great place to stay. We were there for 3 nights but the place is full of people staying long term. Wifi available everywhere in rooms and in the common areas. Good facilities although could do with a little more working space in the kitchen.

Other Side Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The owner is by far the best thing about the place. Brian is super helpful and proactive in making sure we had a good time. He is extremely knowledgeable. The downside was the space and cleanliness. It would not have been hard to keep the place a little cleaner in the kitchen and bathroom. The bedrooms were quite hot even with the fans. One bathroom for the whole place.

El Misti Hostel Rio

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The hostel is very handy to the beach, shops and restaurants. Clean, good beds, great kitchen. The main area is a bit crammed but good to relax in and meet people.

Buddha Hostel Medellin

Medellin, Colombia

The hostel is well situated but we never knew as the staff was unhelpful. When we asked for advice they were lovely but did not share much information. We ended up moving to Poblado were we felt less isolated. Shame as the hostel had a nice vibe, a good kitchen and social areas. Showers did not have much pressure and were a little hit and miss on the hot water.

Puriwasi Lima

Lima, Peru

Great location in Miraflores close to bars and restaurants. But in a quiet street so no traffic noise. Clean, hot showers, good bed. Staff is super helpful. Best if the 3 hostels I stayed in Lima.


Great hostel in a great location to visit the city center but not if you want to party in Miraflores. Only downside was the really bad smell in the girls bathroom and the noise on the street as it is on a main boulevard. But atmosphere is good, clean, comfortable beds, hot showers.


Good hostel with nice comfy atmosphere. Quite busy but adds to the charm. Good beds, loved the cosy feel with the light, shelves and plugs for each bed. Don't forget to bring a big padlock as the lockers don't work with small ones.


Good security. Close to restaurants and bars in Miraflores. Staff very nice and helpful. Main area ok. Bathroom were clean but ladies toilets did not have lid. Both showers were hot but had doors that did not close and you could not change in the bathroom as showers too small and bathroom main door did not close either.

Banana's Adventure

Huacachina, Peru

Great hostel. Hard to fault. Nice atmosphere. Note the bar only serves the BBQ in the evening so if you want something else you have to eat out.


Great place two blocks away from the main square. Clean. Lovely staff very helpful. Huge locker in the room but only 2. Lovely breakfast. Shower don't have much power but they are hot.

Chepatagonia Hostel

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

Lovely hostel and staff. Very friendly and helpful. We did indeed see whales from the balcony! It was an amazing experience.
