A great place to stay in Cordoba. The hostel feels cosy and since it is not very big, it is easy to connect with other travellers. The rooms are clean, with nice furniture and some of them have access to the balcony overlooking the street. The staff are very helpful. Good location within walking distance to Plaza San Martin.

A nice hostel, close to the airport, very helpful staff. The taxi service is expensive, but during the day (not at night!), going back to the airport you can take mototaxi for 5 soles to a street close to the airport. Also, it is easy, cheap and quite fast to get to Miraflores, Barranco or the center by taking a micro to Thomas Valle station and then Metropolitano. Metropolitano is now the fastest way of going around Lima. Ask the very nice hostel crew and they will tell you the details.

An excellent hostel, very clean, with good facilities, comfortable beds and reliable, hot showers. Good location in Arequipa, close to the main square, but on a quiet street and close to a supermarket. A choice of scrambled eggs or a banana pancake for breakfast. Well-equipped kitchen. Helpful, friendly, and very service-minded English-speaking crew, especially Leila. :) I stayed for three days first and then came back twice.

Very helpful staff, clean facilities, comfortable beds, an excellent hostel overall. Some reviewers seem to be concerned about the location (was safer than expected for me), but in reality the hostel is just on the edge of Tenderloin; there are some homeless people outside, but they seem to be in their own world(s). If you follow the route from the subway provided by the hostel, you should be OK. On a different note, breakfast is nice but it could do with some fruit (it's California, after all).

It's a very comfortable hostel, with excellent breakfast (paid extra) with delicious coffee, though it's considerably more expensive that other hostels in the area. The owner is very friendly and helpful but note that she is also the only English-speaking person in the house, so if she happens not to be around, it's difficult to arrange tours or get information. There is one computer for the guests to use; WIFI didn't work when I was there.

A brand new hostel in a good location. Excellent breakfast and good value meals in the cafe. Fast WI FI. It felt pretty secure inside. Some reviewers report overflooding showers, but that wasn't part of my experience; I saw staff cleaning the showers even late in the evening. You have to pay for luggage storage (if I recally correctly, 5 EUR for a large suitcase per day), but it is a very big hostel and it might have been difficult to keep track of all bags.

A well-run hostel right in the centre of Sucre. Some of the guests seem to be students of the Spanish school located on site. Fast wifi, but only in the courtyard and not in the rooms.

I really liked the hostel, in particular the very helpful and friendly staff. They offer tasty meals, which are reasonably priced. The locations is a short walk to the old town and really close to the bus station. There is an excellent travel agency on site (Kanoo Tours), which offers good advice and can help you book tours in Bolivia.

The location seems good only if you want to stay near the airport. It is a pity, as otherwise, the place has a lot of potential (I saw ads for trips around the area), the staff are really friendly and most of them speak good English, the place is clean, you get a towel and a soap from them. They offer airport pick-up and drop-off, which was swift and reliable in my case, but as some other reviewers have pointed out, it is rather expensive in relation to the very short distance covered.

The cycling tour down the Swartberg pass excellent - you are given a detailed map and can visit the Cango Caves and ride an ostrich on the way back (note that it's a long tour, but it's really worth it). The furniture in the rooms a little old, but it's not a problem at all given how well and professionally run this place is.

It's difficult to find more interesting and historical location in Johannesburg area than Soweto. Bike tours are excellent, and their guides informative. I was there last winter and there were frequent electricity failures (not the hostel's fault, it's a problem in Soweto during cold days, when a lot of people use electric heaters). The airport pick-up worked fine, though it is rather expensive. On the other hand, they offer a free drop-off to the BazBus stop in Johannesburg.

A large hostel in a good location, very close to the main train station. Very tasty and filling breakfast. As many others also point out, it would be a good idea to have lockers in dorms; now you can only rent them in the reception. In any case, the hostel is very good value for money, also considering the free pasta dinner they offer at 8 P.M. (you need to sign up for it first, but usually there is some left if you arrive later).

An excellent, clean, and cosy hostel in a good part of Quito. The area seems much more interesting than Mariscal (which I found very boring), and most of all, it is considerably safer. Clean dorms, enough bathrooms, very knowledgeable staff. No free breakfast, but that's not an issue at all, you can get cheap and tasty breakfast for about $2 in many restaurants down the street.

A nice hostel with good crew in a safe location. Stay here if you want to be able to walk freely around the area in the evening, do shopping, and if you don't mind taking Transmillenio or taxis to La Candaleria or other places (it takes some time). However, if you want to be right in the center and if you don't mind spending your evenings inside a hostel (or taking taxis everywhere after in the evening), stay in La Candaleria.

Possibly the best hostel to stay in Oslo, although quite far from the center of the town. Note that the hostel recommends taking a direct bus from Gardermoen airport to get there. It is much cheaper though to take a regular (not the Flytoget) train to Oslo and then change trains and get off at Grefsen (88 NOK).

A large hostel in a good location. WIFI was very slow when I was there, breakfast below average. One of the most expensive hostels I've been to in the USA (and I've been to quite a lot of them). Some interior looks a little bit shabby, but it could be so because the building is quite old. This will soon be a thing of the past, as it moves to a new place in China Town (closer to Downtown, but in a less secure area).

Good location close to Victoria station, some dorms are rather cramped, the house is very old.

The hostel might be a little hard to find, but once you are there, it is pleasant enough. Located in an old building, the rooms may get cold in winter.

The location is quite a walk from the railway station, but the place is OK; the staff are friendly, and there is a lot of food offered for free. Utrecht is a beautiful city, and Holland is a great country with excellent public transportation (something that all Europeans miss so much in the USA).
