Surfing Donkey Hostel

San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua

A nice place with a cool atmosphere to meet people. Expensive but you are paying for the pool and social vibe. Needs breakfast included for the price as possible to get private rooms for less money elsewhere in town.

Really lovely hostel in Wicker Park area of Chicago. Away from the main sites but on the blue line so they are easily accessible. The atmosphere and price makes it a good alternative to the one hostel in downtown (HI). Staff were excellent, especially Meg who was friendly Nd helpful and always had a smile on her face. Recommended.

Freehand Chicago

Chicago, USA

Lovely place and in a fantastic location for a good price, HOWEVER it is a hotel not a hostel. As such it is all but impossible to meet people. There is no area to hang out, watch TV, play pool etc. Just a crummy breakfast room open at breakfast time. OK for a night or two to do the downtown region, but you will most likely be alone for your stay unless you luck out in the room.

Hotel Patio de La Cruz

A nice enough place but a little out of the centre of the old city. Air con did not work but was fixed. Hot tub on roof was not working and there were no computers to use. Small but nice enough breakfast. OK place but a little expensive for what it was.

One Day Hostel

Cartagena, Colombia

Air con only on from 8 or 9 pm every night. Ridiculous. Room had no fans and windows did not fully open. Litterally impossible to stay in without the AC. I was sweating buckets. Made hostel not great as could not chill in room after hot sweaty day outside. Common area tiny and not overly comfortable - metal chairs not sofas etc.

Amazing staff and lovely hostel with areas to hangout and talk to other guests. TV with cable and films available too. Loved it. Price is reasonable too. Downsides are basic breakfast and wifi that does not really reach the bedrooms. But in any case recommended!

Condor's House

A nice friendly small hostel. Basic breakfast. Poor wifi (doesn't reach bedrooms and not super quick, but OK). Only two showers and the bathrooms were dirty. But super cheap for Miraflores so you really cannot complain for the price.

Nice new place with awesome owners and nice staff. No computers to use, but had my own anyway. Bed average comfort and only one pillow and blanket - but was able to get more from empty beds. Plenty of electrical sockets and great wifi.

Nature Hostel

Pucon, Chile

A nice hostel with nice staff. I would recommend it. Downsides: Only 2 showers and 3 toilets for 17 guests, but this never proved a problem. TV had rubbish picture and very limited channels. No games or DVDs. There was an old computer but it did not seem for guest use. Liked: Nice (if very small) breakfast. Good free WiFi. Nice owners. Reasonable price (for area). Towel included in price. Bit like a home than a hostel - nice.

Plaza de Armas Hostel

Santiago, Chile
77%

I would stay here again as it is cheap & in a great location. The negatives for me: Male showers are not cleaned often and smell BAD! I have travelled SE Asia for 11 months and stayed in some crappy hostels that were dirtier by far, but it really bothered me here and is a major let down for a nice place. 10 bed dorm is roomy but has no fans or AC and the window is tiny and does not open to the outside (just a hallway). In the afternoons and evenings this during summer this makes it a sauna.

A good cheap option on Rapa Nui. Atmosphere was only poor because there was only one other person there apart from me. I would stay here again as Rapa Nui is expensive and this is as cheap as it gets bar camping.

An OK place. Free WiFi but limited to 250mb. Basic breakfast - but at least you got one. Location was average but that's because the CBD is still closed so it affects all hostels.

Nomads Byron Bay

Byron Bay, Australia
77%

A nice place in a good location. Only let down by: 1: having no free breakfast (though not many in BB had either) 2: the fact anyone could walk right inside during the day without staying there (security at night much better). 3: the lock on our door not working so anyone could get in. 4: No backpack size lockers in the room. Harsh to give it average value - for BB it is quite good, but I felt giving it good value was too generous. That said I would deffo stay there again.
