This is a basic hostel but comfortable and a great location a short walk from the beach. They have two kitchens, free BBQ and lounge area. Comfortable beds and newly refurbished toilets/showers. Perfect for a short stay in this small coastal town.

A hostel on top of a bar and bottelo, what more could you want! Great location, simple but free breakfast, wifi throughout for a reasonable fee, or pop to one of the many free wifi hotspots around the city. Fun bar with lots of sports playing from around the world. Comfortable but nothing plush. Basic facilities but a good kitchen. Good place to meet other travellers. No lift so keoos you fit. Old building (by Auz standards) byt has character. Good city centre hostel

Space Hotel, Melbourne, Australia

1st Mar 2016

Space is an enormous hostel complete with a small cinema, roof terrace and giant kitchen. It is very clean (toilets are cleaned 5 times a day!) and is very secure. It has a bar attached which is open in the evenings. Downsides are the sheer size doesn't lend itself well to a typical hostel vibe so it's a challenge to meet people. The wifi is only free on the reception area, everywhere else you have to pay a whopping A$20 for a week, which I think is extortinate. Also no brekky options at all.

Belford Hostel, Edinburgh, Scotland

This is a unique hostel (built inside a church) in a pretty good location in Edinburgh. The rooms are a reasonable size and I found them warm and the beds comfortable. The hallways were very cold though as the ceilings in the church are so high and the communal areas was a bit cold. The hostel is a bit rough around the edges but overall I liked the style. The breakfast was lacking! The woman on reception on 15th November was exceptionally rude and unpleasant. I felt sorry for guests arriving!

Our room was fully booked, so they upgraded us to a private for free which was very nice of them. Staff are friendly, hot showers and a cheap, decent fry up.

Breakfast is excellent, great spread. Triple bunks. Wifi is very poor, pool still being built and very small. Staff were friendly. Location is good as next to the bus station but lots of hostels on the beach which is better

Excellent hostel in an unbeatable location next to the beach with a fantastic panoramic view. Decent breakdown and the dinners in the evening (R$18-20) are fantastic. Free surfing stuff to take out. It's a distance from the bus station but totally worth it. Deserves it's place as one of the best hostels in Brazil

Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Excellent bar that gets very busy at night but their's a roof terrace open only to guests to escape the crowds. Comfy beds. Wifi ok. Kitchen was average but they were renovating. Only issue was breakfast as they didn't bother to keep it stocked so there's nothing left by 930 and it's only until 10. Easy to fix. Very good stay here

Very good location near the beach and next to bus station. Good wifi, OK breakfast. Visited in the low season so it was very quiet and seemed to be a lot of the staffs friends hanging around getting stoned. They have triple bunks with little space to store your bags in the room. Would be good in the summer, brew their own beer which is good. Overall good but not great.

This is a very basic hostel but fine if you're only staying one night as most do. No plugs in the rooms and cold showers. Had wifi but slow. They have bread and jam from 6am which is good if you have an early bus

This is a party hostel, those looking for a relaxing stay go somewhere else. Average by standards in Peru, met some great people but 3 nights out of 5 disrupted by people mating in my dorm room. Staff weren't bothered. Doubt I would stay again

The staff here are excellent, very friendly, very helpful and really understand travelers and their needs. Great social activities and the hostel had a really good vibe. The beds are reasonable and everything you can possibly think of has been thought of and they have a label for it. They have a great set up with the lights in the dorm though which stops people turning them on in the middle of the night. All round really great hostel that I would highly recommend to any traveler

The social area is very good, however as it's next door it is used all that much so could do with knocking a hole in the wall. The hostel is very clean, good location as Brooklyn is cool and metro just up the road. However do not be deceived by the 'private rooms'. They may be private or prying eyes but you can hear absolutely everything from every room due to the walls which don't go to the ceiling like a toilet cubicle. Wasn't the quiet nights I've ever had but on the plus the pillows are good
