This hostel was one of the nicest along the east coast. You have loads of space in the kitchen and a nice garden. The only downside was that our doubleroom could be opened with any key and we didn't have any lockers inside. But as Mission Beach is so small you don't really worry about that. They have free tours and walks to spot wildlife every day. It was just great!
We could lock our room but it opened without a key. (You just had to turn the lock with your thumb.) And as it was a double room there were no lockers. Otherwise the hostel was brilliant. Clean and spacious kitchen, nice showers and toilets - and the staff was especially helpfull and nice.
The rooms weren't locked as nobody locks the sliding doors plus there were no lockers. The biggest problem about the atmosphere was the boss always speaks harsh and loud. So even if you're at the other end of the room you hear what he says (or complains about).
The rooms are airconditioned and clean. (The tents probably aren't.) The communal kitchen is small and rather dirty. As it is located 50m from the Greyhound bus stop and the Fraser Island pickup stop (the same) and close to the beach it could hardly have a better location.
The rooms are basically just open and don't have any lockers. The kitchen is cleaned daily but our co-inhabitants were quite messy and it was dirty 15 minutes after cleaning. The same held for the bathroom. As there are many kitchens and too few pans it is common to go to different kitchens to get a pan. The pans available are not good either. And one shower/toilet combination for two rooms is typically just not enough if half of the inhabitants are women.
It's confusing that you have to get your own cuttlary at the reception for a depot and that they don't tell you that on check-in (maybe they just forgot for us). But the good thing about this arrangement is that you're sure your plates are clean ;) The kitchen and reception is closed quite long in the morning to catch the first Greyhound bus. Really nice pool!
You pay a deposit for everything and even need to give a credit card as security if you leave early. (It's not a problem, just cumbersome.) If you leave early (e.g. 7am Greyhound) the kitchen opening hours might lock your things in the fridge. The next store is 3 walking minutes away.
My girlfriend got bites all over the body after staying here for one night (Though I did not). The kitchen wasn't clean at all and the stove wasn't good either.
The hostel is everything you want: clean, tidy, well organized and the staff is friendly. A trip to the city center costs you 1.90 NZ$ one way though as it lies a little south. But we're happy to pay that price for such a great hostel. The only bad thing you could say about it is that there are too many information stickers all over the place.
The hostel is a little bit hidden. You need to get good directions or have a taxi that brings you there and tells you how to find it. (Basically where you need to go up.) Otherwise it's a cosy little hostel that's adjacent to the artist's neighborhood and only a 5 minute walk from a nice viewing point and the center.
It's not in the center of the city but you can still walk there. The walk from the bus stop to the hostel is about 5 to 9 blocks (depending on which stop you arrive at). The hostel itself is tidy, nice and clean. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was nice (eggs, bread, jam and fruits).
The hostel itself is great. Clean rooms, big common area and everything you're looking for. Sadly they lost/mangled our return reservation (after Machu Picchu) so we didn't get our original room back. A missing reservation can be quite frustrating at 11pm if you rose at 4am. Furthermort the BBQ was supposed to start at 8:30pm, started at 9pm and had a long queue until about 10pm (which is when we finally got our meal).
The location is great as it is located 5 walking minutes from the terminal. You can walk to the city center as well. Our shower curtain was a little bit short and the bathroom had a slight smell. But otherwise it's a nice and good hostel.
The hostel is more of a hotel in the way that all rooms are privates. They are nice, large and clean. Breakfast is perfect - with scrambled eggs and good bread.
The BBQ night was great and we met a lot of people there. The rooms are a little bit small so you have to see where you put your stuff but otherwise it's really nice. The common areas are comfortable, nice and large.
Even though the hostel advertizes itself as having airconditioning it only offers it in private rooms. This is quite a thing during the hot months. But otherwise it's a nice place to stay.
We only stayed one night. It's very close to the bus station. They even let us stay all day in the lobby and shower after check-out.
Really close to the bus station. The building is getting older which you can see everywhere. Matresses are getting (too) old as well. But it's a good starting point for your visit to the Iguazu Falls. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
We stayed for four nights and had fun every evening. The staff was very helpful and had new ideas to complement ours. The hostel is rather small (15 beds) and you get to know each other easily. Except for the steep road up to the place it's just perfect and we would recommend it to everyone.
It's located quite close to the waterfront in the center. For breakfast you can chose between two menus and there are no free seconds (you can buy them though). So if you are the hungry type it might not be enough. Otherwise it's a nice little hostel.
The jacuzzi on the top floor really makes the atmosphere and makes watching the sunset even more enjoying. As the hostel is located near the bus station allows for quick arrival and departure. So perfect if you just do a stopover from/to the airport. We don't know whether the location is good to acutally see Cancún. The Hostel is on a busy street and during the night it was very loud even with closed windows. Also we could easily hear the people in the next room.
The hostel is located at the northern end of the town on the road to the beach (which is > 3km though). There is a supermarket just around the corner. You are not allowed to cook meat in the kitchen (vegetarian cooking only). If you're not a vegetarian this might get cumbersome if you stay a little longer. The Bathrooms were cleaned once a day, which didn't prevent the shower from starting to smell from bad water though. The staff was helpful and gave us maps, directions and tipps.
Located near the center of Campeche the hostel is quite new and clean. The rooms are not 5 bed mixed dorms though. There would be space for fourteen people. But we don't know whether they fill the rooms or not (we were 6 in the room).
The rooms are quite small. But that's what you get for the perfect location at the Zocalo. The staff and especially the director is very helpful and gives good advice. The breakfast on the top floor terrace is tasty and the view breathtaking. There is also entertainment such as walking tours and salsa nights. We can warmly recommend the barbecue even though it starts quite late. A travel angency is right next to the reception area.
