I only spent one night at this hostel, but there wasn't much of a fun atmosphere. The rooms are clean and nice, but lookers are outside the rooms. The hostel is pretty open, so it is very cold at night.

It was hard to find following the directions. The hostel is ok, but checking in was confusion since the 'staff' didn't know what to do. The hostel needs a common area.

I loved staying in Tchaikovsky Hostel. It's a small hostel, great to make new friends and rest after a visit to the beautiful city of Split. The facilities are excellent, the bathrooms very clean, and the rooms are spacious. Maja and Filip were great host, always helpful and available to have a nice conversation. I highly recommend this place when you visit Split.

The guy in the reception was nice and helpful. Some rooms do not have air conditioning, and the ceiling fan was too slow, which made it very hard to sleep at night. Tel Aviv is very hot at night and opening the windows didn't help, because of all the noise from the street.

This is a great option if you want to stay near the beach in Ipanema. Some rooms have a lot of space and nice lockers. Not too many bathrooms. Compared to other Rio hostels security is not too tight.

Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. We are glad to hear you liked our location and staff, during high season things get a bit crazy. The house is full and our staff is very busy with work and don't really have enough time to socialize with each guest. Now we have improved this and we have spoken to the old staff to have a better customer care. We hope to see you again! Best regards, Cabanacopa

This location has modeled itself after the venerable Loki, but falls short in some key areas. The bar, unfortunately, was deserted our entire time there, and the people there generally kept to themselves--even in the common room. Otherwise, it serves its function as a hostel, and has an unbeatable location in the tranquil Plaza San Francisco, two small blocks from the Plaza de Armas.

LOKI Backpacker Hostel, Cusco, Peru

2nd Aug 2009

Careful: if you don\'t speak Spanish, the staff at the reception may very well be making fun of you! Unfortuately for them, we look gringo but are Spanish-speakers!! Many places to lock your valuables, but thefts still seem common. Caters to an Anglophone clientele (pub trivia, smoky bar, etc.), to the point where communicating in Spanish is futile. Also, if your train to Machu Picchu is early, good luck getting a good night\'s sleep. As such, it warrants its rep. as Cuzco\'s true party hostel.

Thanks for the feedback Francisco. Regarding reception staff this was a real shame to read from a co-managers point of view as we work hard to make reception a welcoming friendly place. We have since addressed this problem with all hostel staff to avoid this happening in the future. Since we are a large and popular hostel, we take security very seriously and do provide more than sufficient lockers for all guests to use however there are a select few guests who chose not to use these which is unfortunate. Once again thanks for your feedback. Thanks Jesse

It is hard to find by taxi. It's not as close to the center of Miraflores as other hostels for the same price/same type/more fun. The staff is helpful but the rooms were a little dingy!

Less of a hostel than a guesthouse, so it\'s not the best place to meet other travelers, but otherwise this is probably the best place I\'ve stayed in S. America! Very clean, comfortable, and close to the center of town.

I recommend this hostel, the staff was excellent, very helpfull giving information about places to visit and how to find your way around the city. This is a quiet place, with a very friendly atmosphere. The location is good, between the downtown area and Copacabana or Ipanema beach, but you cannot walk to those beaches.
