A really nice place. We stayed a total of 5 nights, spending one night in their sister hostel around the corner (slightly bigger). Both modern, really clean dorms, fresh sheets, towels and clean bathrooms. Breakfast is toast with spreads, piece of fruit, tea or coffee, which is decent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is good, just a 5mins walk from the MRT at Farrer St and a short walk into the heart of Little India, which has a great atmosphere, lots of people, great food.

A nice hostel in a good location not far from Plaza Chile, so a 5 mins walk to Plaza Independencia. An OK room with bunks instead of beds, with a locker. Really nice communal areas, with a decent kitchen and nice garden area. Not the right time of year to use the small pool though! The breakfast was OK. Needed to buzz to get in/out rather than having own key and had to pay $10ARS to store our rucksack - both a bit annoying. Otherwise, a decent place.

A good hostel in a lovely old building with lots of character. The communal areas are nice, TV area, upstairs sitting area, dining area, kitchen and patio. The bedroom was really big with a huge bed and a little balcony. The bathrooms were clean. The breakfast was decent too. It's a little more expensive and the location is a 10mins walk from the metro stop at Uni Catolica (easy access to the centre), but it's a decent area and not too far from Bellavista, Santa Lucia hill, with shops & bars.

A really nice hostel, next to the Victoria lift, with easy access to the downtown/port area and up to the various hills for great views. Bars, restaurants, shops etc. all really close too. Had a big private room with shared bathroom, which was clean and had hot water. Communal areas were very nice (if a little small) and the kitchen was well equipped. Overall a good bet in a fantastic city.

Good location. A big hostel with big shared spaces (kitchen, dining room, roof terrace) with big rooms. Had ensuite in the private. Breakfast was fine, with drinks, fruit, bread etc. it was clean and functional. Staff were OK, but not overly friendly or helpful. A decent place for a night or two to visit the town and mine.

A really nice place in a convenient location just up the hill from the main square. The family and staff were really friendly and helpful. For some reason they didn't want two guys sharing a private room, so they gave us a room each instead for the same price! This was fine. Both ensuite too. Breakfast was good (drinks, juice or yoghurt, bread & jam). There is also a kitchen available for guests. The house is very pretty, with a courtyard and terrace to get a lovely view of the city.

A good hostel in a convenient location, easy to walk around town and get to the port. The staff were helpful, booking bus tickets, ordering taxis and takeout pizza! The private rooms were really nice. They kept our bags for us when we went island hopping. The breakfast was average. Overall a good bet.

Nice hostel, clean, friendly staff & helpful, great room with ensuite & a hot shower & an extra heater if needed. Breakfast was good. Great TV area where you can choose from a vast choice of DVDs. Location in San Blas is great, with many local restaurants at great prices (much cheaper than the main tourist places), as well as shops & cafes. Only a short walk down to the main square. Bit more hotel feel than hostel, and no kitchen. A nice quiet place to spend the week visiting the sites.

Great location on the cliff top just behind the church. Easy access to the beach and town, with lots of shops & food places. We had a private room. Not sure what the dorms were like. Nice layout with a terrace running along the private rooms, with a hammock, and garden with dining area. Room had mosquito net and ensuite. Breakfast was decent, fruit, bread with cheese & ham, cake etc. Friendly staff. Had a laundry service too. Kitchen seemed ok, but we didn't use it. A decent place.

Probably the best place we've stayed in so far in S.America. The house is lovely, the staff very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is great, the kitchen equiped, the lounge a great chill out space. We slept really well in single beds with fans. There's the magnificent view from the roof terrace with hammocks and the team are involved as volunteers with the Julio Ontoni favela project. It's really nice to get up into the hills from the busy and hot city and you travel with the locals too.

Great location on the beach. Nice outdoor areas. Lovely breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Kitchen OK. Downside is the dorms are really big with few fans, so really hot. Bathrooms are really small. And often there was no water! Not great. Seems to be a peak season issue in Paraty, but a problem all the same.

Great staff; Gustavo is really helpful, a nice fun friendly atmosphere. A bit expensive with 5 day min booking, as it was new year. Great time. Hostel is nicely set out, with a bar, gardens, pool. Location is half way between the beach and shops, so you always have to walk a few kms, but the bus stop is really close, so good for visiting other parts of the island. Breakfast was good. It's very hot in the dorms, with only a fan. Would benefit from mosquito nets. Small lockers for personal items.

We stayed here for 3 nights over Christmas. The location is great, just a few blocks from the main streets and the bus terminal, so easy to organise trips to the falls & onward journeys, and find food. It was nice to have a pool to cool down, and the kiosk/bar was very handy. The kitchen is nice & big. We had a private double with ensuite, which was OK, but very bare (no pictures, cupboard or hooks to hang anything). The staff were generally friendly and informative. A decent place.

A nice, clean hotel-hostel with friendly staff. Breakfast was also provided nice and early, which allowed us to catch our early bus departure. A good place for a short stay. We had a four bed dorm to ourselves. The bathroom was tiny though!

9th Dec 2013

Huge potential, great location, but significant service gaps. No kitchen (you have to use the other El Diablo hostel, whose kitchen is also tiny and unclean). Not even a toaster for use at breakfast. The bar and restaurant were both closed. These only seem to open for peak season (i.e from Xmas onwards), but they don't tell you this. Overall our double private room was nice, but nowhere to put your luggage or valuables. It could have been cleaner and we expected a view but were at the back.

Very small 6-bed dorm, very hot despite fans, and access through another dorm. Lack of storage space. Staff were friendly and helpful though. Communal areas are nice, with a balcony and roof terrace too. Able to hire bikes for the day, which was great to get to the beach. Kitchen and wifi were fine and the shared bathrooms were fine too. Location is good for old town, but it's very quiet with not much to see, and most activity is in the new town / at the beach.

Great location, nice common areas, pretty building, and friendly staff. The problem was we stayed in the 4 bed dorm, which is at the front of the hostel facing the road. Between the dogs barking, the cars, the birds that sound like car alarms (yes it's true!), and worst of all, the other guests who sat outside talking until the early hours just below the dorm window, this made for the worst 2 nights sleep we'd had in two months! And the staff said nothing. Do NOT book this dorm!

Overall a nice hostel, with a big common space and good kitchen facilities. It's a shame the bathrooms are on the ground-floor though. Also, the dorms are extremely hot in the morning due to the underfloor heating. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but maybe a little too keen to speak in English instead of Spanish; it makes it hard to improve!

Rancho Grande Hostel, El Chalten, Argentina

27th Nov 2013

The hostel is big, with a big mezzanine lounge area. It's the opposite side of town to the station. There is a restaurant. Dorms are decent with storage and the shared bathrooms were good. There was usually hot water. The place is kept clean with daily bed lining changes. Breakfast was not included (but this seemed to depend on how you booked), and this is not uncommon for El Chalten. The wifi is very poor, but again, this is common for all of El Chalten. The kitchen is small with no utensils.
