Karamba Hostel, Valparaiso, Chile
8.6
27th Mar 2016

This is a very chilled-hostel, in a good area on he wonderful Cerro Algre. The staff are good, the rooms are lovely and the place is nice -with also a water-filter in the kitchen. The only strange thing is that 2 things (toilet-bag & towel) disappeared from me which is not the hostel's responsibility, but must have been taken from an opportunistic (and slightly desperate) guest!

Andes Hostel, Santiago, Chile
8.6
24th Mar 2016

Andes is a nice hotel: it is kind of well-organised but informal... They have a very wholesome breakfast of toast, eggs (as much as you take, perhaps!), cereal (all good, although the coffee is instant! and the juice is over-sweet!). The position is cool and nice, just opposite Belles Artes, and the rooms are good with good-size lockers and a window (

Kombi Hostel, Santiago, Chile
8.6
21st Mar 2016

Kombi Hostel is a nice, informal. kid-of party hostel: the staff - and some of these are moving-on soon, being travellers themselves, are sound (esp. Oscar); and the place is spacious enough: the kitchen is also good. There is also a nice terrace. The only problem for me (but apparently not for others) were the showers: extreme hot to very cold (and that is colder than the outside temperatures) both times I used them. Also the wifi is sometimes un-usable...

531 Hostel, Cordoba, Argentina
8.3
5th Mar 2016

The hostel is a good one: particularly the staff –they are lovely are v.personable, responsive & professional (informal, but on-the-ball, and communicative) The kitchen is good, the rooms are fine (I only know the dormitories)....and the hostel's arrangement encourages socialising amongst its clientele (there's a lovely lounge round the corner) The only slight negatives are that the breakfast could have a little more choice, and the door does not say hostel anywhere on it - which was confusing

9.4
14th Feb 2016

Hostel Eco Pampa is Sound: the staff are lovely, professional & accommodate themselves to help with requests.The hostel itself encourages socialising in its air-conditioned front,large room... The breakfast is good, with more variety & quality than most hostels; there are many showers/toilets/bathrooms; there is a nice terrace, with a beautiful herb garden, and a lovely 2.5 X 2.5 square of grass just a few steps up from it... There are recycling bins... The kitchen just needs a bit of work...

Hostel Suites Florida, Buenos Aires, Argentina
9.4
26th Jan 2016

This is a sound hostel: the staff are very good -(including the cleaning staff), and have a very good manner. The hostel is very chilled and is a nice place to reside in for a few days. Certainly recommendable :) It is a pity that there is little enticement for the guests to go up to the roof terrace - for it is very nice...Because, normally, everyone gathers on the ground patio place for smoking cigarettes, playing music, drinking and using the laptop with the possibility of socialising

30th Dec 2015

This hostel is a good, quality one: principally, it's the attitude & the industry of the staff (esp. Monica,Julieta,Nacho E.& Mariano): they deal with oneself & one's questions with patience,understanding & a naturalness – like it is how they are as people, rather than it being an ‘act’/ just being ‘professional’... day or night;- they will solve problems immediately without any complaint. Also, there is a good breakfast, a nice terrace, filtered water available, good rooms and enough space

Pocitos Hostel, Montevideo, Uruguay
9.4
4th Dec 2015

Este es un hostal bueno (genial): el lugar es acogedor, relajado, informal, limpio, con un buen ambiente. El personal es muy bueno ... Ellos tienen un buen equilibrio entre dejar que la gente juega la música en la noche, pero detenerlo en un momento determinado para aquellos dormir ... Un buen lugar cuando es tranquilo o cuando se rellena ... Deberías ir a visitar :)

Este albergue es muy buena... Los últimos 2-3 días ha sido como vivir en casa de un amigo: tiene este 'sentido'. El personal es genial, amable y atento - sin ser demasiado formal, y es limpia, con buenas duchas, buenos desayunos... y por el momento, parece atraer a gente de Brasil!

Caballos Locos is a good, sound hostel: the facilities, rooms, kitchen, bathrooms (great showers)... are good, secure, spacious... The staff are cool, friendly, helpful and professional... The place has a lot of light (e.g. in the common-room area)... There is quite a nice area outside... It is worth going to, for sure :)

This hostel has a very nice, beautiful, subtle, clean feel... It is not noisy, and one can relax in the garden (-with a pool), or n one's room. Mike, , the guy who runs it (I think that's his name), seems a very nice chap. I had a deep knd of feeling of not wanting to leave when I had to...

Hostel Rio Playa, Playa del Carmen, Mexico
8.3
11th Mar 2014

This hostel has lovely staff. The place is very nice. There is a swimming pool and a bar with generally good atmosphere. The only drawback is that the music from opposite goes on til about 1.30 am. Also, maybe anther fridge would be good for the food s STUFFED IN the fridges, and it is almost impossible to find your bags and food, which sounds petty maybe, but is frustrating when you are craving the food you have bought but cannot find it. In general, it is a very nice and likable hostal

Although this was the Ecopackes I stayed in - and there was no problem, etc. the Ecopackers in Cuzco was exceptional. The staff are so professional and can look after your bags when you haven't even stayed there (although I stayed at this one in Agua Calientes)

4th Sep 2013

I particularly enjoyed my time at this hostel... Not only because of the luck of meeting some lovely people here, but also due to the general attitude and friendliness of the staff (some are multi-lingual = very useful/appreciated), and the general zany, 60's-kitsch deliberate ambience and decor of the place is likable... I didn't notice too much noise -even though it encourages group pub-crawl The kitchen and recycling facilities are also very good and appreciated...

Ostello San Frediano, Lucca, Italy
8.0
4th Sep 2013

I don't mean to be too harsh on the atmosphere side of things; it was just a little quiet and hard to meet-bond with people, apart from at breakfast... This might be something to do with Lucca itself, which -though while beautiful and 'Toscanan', is relatively quiet at night (apart from the Sat night scooter rides!) The building is certainly impressive, with various artworks/photos along the ample walls... It is very lavish and certainly has the grandeur' of a certain kind of quality-hotel...

Hostel Pisa, Pisa, Italy
4.9
27th Aug 2013

Having arrived there, my first Ostello in Pisa, tired from the flight, etc. the young man almost told me off that I 'should have read everything', for I was charged an extra 15-20 (over 40's!)! & then 'humoured' me about the sort of purse I had. My room had no inside lock, & the bathroom light didn't work (for a shower,one pays 6 Euros more!). The decor was very lifeless, However, the cleaning staff however were friendly, the other 20-something 'hostellers' were cool & the Wifi worked!
