Hostal Los Salares

Tupiza, Bolivia

stayed in the double ensuite. The beds are ok. The patio is nice and Sunny. Breakfast is different every day. The staff is very helpfull. We did the Salar tour (4 days) with them and it was the best we could have hoped for! Santos is a very good driver and a pleasant guide. The food on the tour was amazing! Would definitely recommend going with this organisation!

Rusty-k Hostal

Cafayate, Argentina

stayed 1 night in 4 bedroom dorm. Beds are ok. The big patio is a nice place to relax. The staff is friendly and it is close to the small center of Cafayate.

La Posada de Don Simon

Salta, Argentina

stayed for 2 nights in twin bed room. The hostel is not that cosy and smells like incence (wierook) the whole time. The rooms are very basic but ok. The kitchen is very small and underequipped. The breakfast is nice but not much. (good coffee)) The staff is nice and helpfull. We loved the siamese cat Lola.


Mendoza, Argentina

stayed 2 nights in double room. Our private bathroom smelled a bit like gas and we had some trouble with the water supply for the shower. Apart from that we liked our stay. There is a big kitchen and a great garden with a clean swimming pool. The hostel is close to the bus terminal but a bit out of the centre.

Hostal El Arbol

La Serena, Chile

stayed for 2 nights in the 8 bedroom dorm. The dorm is quite small and the beds make a lot of noise, it smelled a bit humid as well. The hostel has a nice patio where you can socialise. The kitchen is small. The staff is very friendly and helps you arrrange anything you would like. The breakfast is very nice with fresh fruit juice. It's close to the center but a walk away form the beach.

Hostal Po

Valparaiso, Chile

stayed for 3 nights in a 6-bedroom dorm. the hostel is very beautiful thanks to the many wall paintings. the beds in the dorm were very comfy as well. We would say that this place has a lot of potential but it's not quite coming out yet. Exept for the great host Paul, all the other staff members don't make any effort towards making this hostel a nice place to stay. The breakfast is poor and is mostly served on a small table with leftovers from the night before. The kitchen is small and dirty.

El Gallo con Tacos

Santiago, Chile

Stayed for 3 nights in one of the prettiest double rooms of our trip so far. We loved the big patio with the waterfall and the huge breakfast with llots of fruits and daily surprises as pancakes, vegetable omelet, guacamole, etc... The hosts were super friendly and made our stay very pleasant. Bit out of the center but very close to the subway and bus station.

Chili Kiwi Lakefront

Pucon, Chile

Only stayed here for 1 night because it was fully booked. The staff was very nice and they gave us lots of information about the to do's in and around Pucon. We enjoyed the comfy beds with individual reading lights. We climbed the volcano and went to the hot springs with them and it was great! They are a bit out of the centre but they have a great view over the lake and the volcano. Great garden!

Margouya Patagonia

Puerto Varas, Chile

We stayed in Margouya for 3 nights (2 in dorm, 1 in double) and we absolutely LOVED the spacious beds. With the amazing blankets you almost feel as if you're sleeping in a cloud. The staff was very friendly and arranged us with a kajak and rafting tour. Both of the trips were fun and well organised. The only downside is the fact that they don't serve breakfast, but the discount voucher for a breakfast place nearby is a good solution.

La Casona de Odile

El Bolson, Argentina

We we're planning to stay in La Casona for 4 nights only. Ten minutes after arriving we decided to stay for 7 nights and still we we're sad to leave after a fabulous week. La Casona is a little piece of Paradise. The hostel is cosy and charming, the garden is absolutely stunning and the staff is like a family. We had the chance of celebrating new year's with them and we couldn't have imagined a better place. They create a heartwarming atmosphere and therefore it is a great place to relax!

Rancho Grande Hostel

El Chalten, Argentina

The Lonely Planet describes this hostel as a backpackers factory and that is exactly how it felt. It's a very big hostel that is actually also a restaurant. Therefore it lacks charm. The kitchen is really small and underequipped. The staff was not really friendly. We we're there in high season and the price is high if you consider that breakfast is not included and you have to pay for the computers. It does have a good location as it is nearby the beginning of the Fitz Roy trek.

America del Sur Hostel

El Calafate, Argentina

This hostel has a really nice common room with a great view on the lake. The breakfast is really nice and includes hot chocolat, cereals, juice, cake, toasts etc... The staff was helpfull but a bit arrogant. The dorms we're ok but a bit small for 4 peaople with large backpacks.

La Posta Hostel and Apart

Ushuaia, Argentina

We stayed for 4 nights in the 6 bed-dorm and sometimes the room had an undefinable smell. The staff was really nice and helpfull! The breakfast only includes medialunas and coffee/ tea which is nice for people who like medialunas like us :-). It's a 30 minute walk from the centre, you can take a bus or hitchhike. (good: they have two kitchens! bad: the bathroom is not attached to the room)

Hi Patagonia Hostel Puerto Madryn

Puerto Madryn, Argentina

Staff helps with aranging tours. Nice kitchen that is well equipped or enjoy one of Gaston's barbeques. Good athmosphere in the garden or at the dining table. Breakfast is ok but very sweet. Don't rent the bikes.

Backpackers House Paraty

Paraty, Brazil

We had an amazing stay at this hostel where you immediately feel at home. Pablo is the best host you can get and if you're able to do the Waterfall Tour with him, then you definitely should! We can also recommend his dinners (BBQ, pizza and loads of Caiprinhas) and off course his amazing and endless breakfast! Definitely the best choice if you stay in Paraty!
