Hostal Rural, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

8th Feb 2016

When I arrived at the hostel in the late afternoon, I was greeted by three men who all worked at the hostel. They were all noticeably high. As a solo female traveler, it just made me uncomfortable given that they were in charge of running the hostel but obviously not taking their job very professionally or seriously. I spent little time at the hostel because I was on tours and honestly just felt uncomfortable around the staff there. One positive is the hostel does have a great location.

Hostel has an awesome location right next to Patio Bellavista. There are countless bars and restaurants in walking distance from the hostel. The subway/metro is just a 5 minutes walk and the stop is on Line 1. The Parque Forestal is right across the river and a great place for walking. It was easy to get everywhere from the hostal. Hostal was super clean and the roof top balcony is awesome. You can see Cerro San Cristobal and all the way to the Costanero Center. Overall, loved my stay!

After 4 nights in the jungle, it was great to have a clean and air conditioned room. The hostel is right off the main plaza and two blocks from the Malecon. Great location, but still quiet.

Hostel is located on a quite stretch of beach, but it is quick and easy to get into Puerto Lopez. The communal kitchen is awesome and well stocked with pots and pans. Laying by the pool or by the ocean makes for a relaxing weekend. Only downside is that the dorm rooms had only one small fan and the room smelled super musty.

Great location in the Candelario neighborhood. You can easily walk to restaurants and the main plazas. Staff are friendly and provide great city advice. Hostel is quiet and has a very chill vibe.

The Meeting Point Hostel, Barranquilla, Colombia

Dorm rooms are pretty basic, but have aircon and a private bathroom. The family who owns the hostel are very kind. They live on the property and make you feel completely at home. They definitely are what make the hostel. The owner speaks good English and was excited to share suggestions about what to see and do around Barranquilla. Hostel is located in a quiet neighborhood, but there are a few basic restaurants in walking distance.

The Dreamer Hostel, Santa Marta, Colombia

Hostel has a great vibe. There are lots of common areas to meet people and a full kitchen to use. Hostel is located outside of the city, which actually makes it easier to get to. You can catch buses to Tayrona just two blocks from the hostel which is super convenient. There is a mall walking distance from the hostel also with a grocery store and ATMs. Overall great experience.

El Viajero Cartagena Hostel, Cartagena, Colombia

The hostel is quite large, so service is pretty impersonal. At night, it is incredibly loud. The main socializing area is in the center courtyard which is where all the rooms are, so at night you hear everything that is going on outside. The hostel also has so many guests that the water runs out frequently. It is not uncommon to lose water in the middle of your shower and then you just have to wait 10-15 minutes covered in soap for more water to be pumped into the tanks.

Great little hostel up on a hill over Minca. The walk up the steps with a full pack is quite a killer, but the view from the hostel is amazing. They are building some new facilities, and their newest dorm room is basically an open air tree house, which is awesome. Hostel has a great community vibe where everyone eats meals together at a big table. Great place to meet people and just relax in a hammock. Minca is a small town so you can get everywhere pretty quickly from the hostel.

The Dreamer, Palomino, Colombia

2nd Feb 2014

By far the best place I stayed in Colombia. Staff are amazing and everyone knows your name by the end of the first day. The kitchen serves delicious, reasonably priced food. The pasta carbonera was amazing. The grounds are beautiful with a pool right in the middle. The beach at Palomino is empty which is amazing. You can walk down and claim your own private piece of sand and just relax.

Divanga Bed & Breakfast, Taganga, Colombia

1st Feb 2014

The hostel is beautiful and set around a pool, but most of the rooms are private rooms so it is not necessarily the best place to meet people. Hostel is also located quite a few blocks from the heart of Taganga. It does not take long to walk, but at night it definitely is not the safest to walk to on your own.
