great location and nice rooms with really comfortable beds, even on the top bunk. unfortunately our dorm had ensuite bathrooms which had a bit of an issue with the ventilator which caused a damp problem on some days. i'd recommend to try and get a room with no ensuite bathroom and this hostel would be perfect for a stay in hongkong

Decent hostel with very comfortable beds, good location and free kayaks, surfboards and shuttle bus. Only thing that's missing is a washing line to hang wet clothes after the beach

This is a nice chilled out hostel to stay for a few days, comfortable dorms, decent communal areas and decent sized pool. Only thing that lets it down is the kitchen size and layout are so awkward that it becomes difficult as soon as there are 3 people in the kitchen. Stay there but try and avoid cooking

Unfortunately the whole place was quite dirty when we stayed, corridors smelt of puke and sweat, room was very messy (granted that is highly driven by occupants), bathrooms and kitchen were dirty (the latter seemed to be suffering from perpetual puddles in multiple areas). The bedroom had small lockers for valuables but half of these were broken. The crowd is young and the hostel massive but having stayed in similar places i know it's not impossible to maintain basic cleanliness. Probably worth

Dear Silvia, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us, I apologise if you found the hostel "messy" even if it was as a result of other guests in your room. We do put a lot of effort into keeping the hostel clean and go through each room every day to keep them tidy. I apologise that the stay did not meet your expectations, I hope you enjoy the rest of your travels in Australia. Kind regards, Sam B

This is a stop gap hostel for people travelling through Auckland airport. As such it has no atmosphere but the place is clean and facilities are basic but adequate to stay one night, if staying longer or to visit Auckland I'd recommend to stay downtown

Large hostel but broken out across 3 houses which makes it more homely. Clean with good facilities, only negative is that its a bit of a walk to CBD (approx 10 mins)

Nicely located in middle of hokitika. Functional and has all facilities needed for a stopover but probably not a place i would stay longer term as lacking in atmosphere a bit possibly due to it being located above a giant jade store

Hi Silvia Thank you for your review. Yes we are located above the Jade Factory but we are a separate Business, We find that our customers have a great time in general and hang out and talk about their travels and experiences. Mountain Jade Backpackers

Good location in Aucklands university area, good base to explore Auckland from Hostel is clean and has decent facilities. It is broken into a series of self contained apartments which can make socialising a bit difficult for anybody looking to meet people.

location best hostel breakfast in Brasil, more choice than I have seen in any other hostel great little bar where barman Paul makes mean caipirinhas - crammed common area and dorms - has a roof terrace where it was possible to hang wet clothes from the beach when I stayed previously, however this has now been locked which results in everybody having to hang their wet beach clothes over beds in rooms not great

Great location, around in the room) good breakfast ~rooms are decent albeit crammed (I'd prefer dorms with more than 4 beds in favor of being able to turn - not much of a hostel atmosphere/ opportunity to meet people - restricted access to kitchen making it difficult to cook yourself - staff members don't seem to communicate you were constantly sent from one person to the next to get questions answered or had all staff members ask you the same questions

Nice hostel less than 5 mins walk to the el poblano bar area, but far enough away from the noise if unwanted. Hostel dorms are clean, only thing that is lacking a bit is security - it's easy to get to the dorms from restaurant/bar area which is open to public, a gate inbetween would be great. location value for money bar downstairs - dorm area not secured from public (dorms can be locked though and each bed has a locker) - could use a few more bathrooms when busy

Great hostel with great staff and great facilities: kitchen, loads of places indoors and outdoors to relax. We had a great welcome from the staff amd very helpful. Just bare in mind that it is very popular and therefore really busy. People party late and also leave early for Colca canyon excursions so not a quiet place to sleep.

Approx 20 mins walks from bus terminal in a good location rooms face away from the road which makes it quiet to sleep. Hostel had just opened and new facilities were being added every day, I'd expect this hostel to become better by the day. breakfast - including amazing pancakes happy hour lockers fit backpacks - wifi connection was poor and only worked in common areas - few common areas (looked like more were being added) - little storage space in kitchen

Rancho grande was being renovated so we were in the hotel next door. Whilst it was a nice surprise to have a hotel room the excitement soon went when we realised the bedsheets in the room we were given were used despite the room having just been made up and the kitchen was quite dirty. Shame as the place would otherwise have been ok

Spent 3 nights at Cruz del Sur. Hostel is very busy and a bit crowded but that makes part of an amazing atmosphere. Staff is fantastic, Ana gave awesome advice on trips based on time/budget and other places travellers have already seen in Patagonia. Would stay here again, highly recommended for single travellers who will find other likeminded people. + atmosphere + staff + sink to handwash clothes - common areas are quite small but contribute to atmo - internet only works in common areas
