Sotz Hostel

Panajachel, Guatemala

Ants all over the room, cold showers when the water worked. Breakfast is just a egg sandwich with cold coffee and no milk. Staff wasn't around on the second day to help, but when they were they were helpful. WiFi stopped working after first day. Overall the place is very overpriced. They had 3 dogs roaming around, so not a place for those that do not like dogs.

Theatre International Hostel

More run down than the pictures suggest, but ok for spending a night before moving on elsewhere. Very helpful staff.

Nola Jazz House

New Orleans, USA

Great place in a good location. Staff are really friendly and helpful and rooms and facilities are good. The atmosphere here was great with a good group of other travelers. Location is good with the streetcars just outside and frequent to go to the French Quarter or anywhere else. Would definitely stay here again.


Met some great people here and had a great time, didn't want to leave. The hostel itself is ok and location is a bit out of the way, but the atmosphere more than made up for it. Enjoyed my stay here.

Only stayed here 1 night, but enjoyed the stay. They had a pub crawl organized with free drinks in the hostel beforehand and this was a great way to meet other people. The location is good and the rooms are clean. Would definitely recommend.

Nice hostel with plenty of organized activities.

HI - Boston Hostel

Good free breakfast, location and staff. Activities advertised by hostel did not always go ahead which was a bit annoying but there were plenty of activities planned each day. Good friendly place to meet people and excellent rooms.


Location not great as quite a few stops out of downtown, but the staff are very friendly and helpful. And other travelers there are friendly as well.

Great place to stay and meet people in the bar downstairs. Staff friendly and helpful and activities organized for each day. Only pain is no plug points by each bed.

Nice little hostel with good facilities. Friendly staff and other fellow travelers. Great value for money. Has a homely vibe to it.


Great place, in a good location. Easy to meet other people in the bar downstairs and quite a few activities organized by the hostel. Rooms are a little cramped.
