Really great hostel, found it amazing for solo travellers because of amazing common area - the terrace. Everyone just hangs there and drinks wine. Also the staff are absolutely beautiful.

Pretty good hostel, great price. Location wasn't that central but easily accessible by three metro lines. it's one of those giant chain hostels so can be a bit impersonal and soulless - probably better for groups than solo travellers. Bar downstairs is a big win though.

Amazing amazing hostel! Big enough that you could meet a bunch of other people but small enough that it felt very personal and everyone knew each other. Loved it, one of my favourite hostels in Europe! Great location and staff and vibe. One little suggestion - change the video in the kitchen! Or turn that screen off, because the repeat ad drove everyone crazy. Other than that, totally perfect experience.

Could be a hit or miss - there's no common area for everyone so if you don't like the people in your room it'll be hard to meet people. That being said, I met great people and had a good time. Definitely good recommendation for groups considering how cheap it is for Cinque Terre. Good location and wifi was good in our apartment!

Great priced hostel, I found it a little lacking in atmosphere as the common area isn't too conducive to sitting around having a chat. But for the cheap price, I'd stay here again.

One of my favourite ever hostels! Such amazing people and staff. For me, it's too far away from Florence to make a regular journey in but the people here were extremely friendly and mostly solo travellers who want to have a chat. Loved it. The most stunning view of the city at sunset as well.

Unfortunately I would not recommend for solo travelers! The only communal area is the laundromat which was kind of odd and the dorm rooms can be small - hard to meet new people. However, for couples or groups I imagine it would be good value for money in a decent location.

Nice enough hostel in a great location. Unfortunately was a bit low on atmosphere for my liking and I found some of the staff members very dismissive. Would recommend for groups but atmosphere doesn't make it the best for making friends for solo travellers.

Hi thre. Thanks for your voting. We are sorry that the hostel was low on atmosphere during your stay... It is usually a really good place to find people and make friends. We hope you enjoyed Tossa anyway, and wish you the best for the rest of your trip.

Mixed feelings! Showers were great, beds were fine and there was good facilities and the wifi was reliable. Definitely found it too far away from the action and certain staff members acted like it was a huge chore to help you out.

Hostel Mundo Maya, Cancun, Mexico

Unfortunately this place just had no atmosphere and was falling apart. We also paid extra to have a private room but the wall wasn't connected to the roof so it was really noisy. No AC or fans. The owners didn't speak English (not a bad thing, just unusual in Cancun). would not room end.

Favourite hostel in Mexico!! The atmosphere was amazing, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Puerto Escondido is the coolest little beach town and I would highly recommend this hostel for your stay. Also seems like a good place to try and find work for a couple of weeks.

A fun little hostel that's small enough so that you get to know most of the people in the hostel! Breakfast is better than a lot I had in South America. Showers are hot and beds are super comfortable. Very cheap for this area of Buenos Aires.

Maybe my favourite hostel in South America! The staff really went well beyond what was required and did everything they could to get you to the best things in Florianopolis. Breakfast was AMAZING, huge selection of stuff. Beds were very comfortable and rooms quite spacious. The hostel has lots of things for hire, bikes, kayaks, body boards etc.

It's good to get a hostel quite cheap close to Copacabana but for what I paid I was entirely unimpressed. Just quite dirty, the beds were awful and mouldy and I'd hate to be someone who got stuck on the top of a triple bunk bed! The place smelt quite musty and the bathrooms were very dirty and there weren't enough! Great location though, and good breakfast.

definitely less wild than its cusco and la paz counterparts but a good atmosphere none the less. always had stuff going on during the days. bit of a party hostel but not so overwhelmingly that you can't just chill out somewhere.
