Perfect hostel - amazing staff who remember your name (no matter how long your backpack has been hiding in their store room). Clean decent sized pool. Great location to go into tayrona, palomino, costeno or taganga. Awesome Italian food as the owners are from there! Good party without being bresa-loca wild

Hostel Masaya Santa Marta

Amazing rooftop pool, comfy beds with curtains. Lush design that looks like a boutique hotel. Only downside is that the atmosphere is lacking - everyone who wants to socialise walks down the road to bresa loca. The staff don't do anything to help change this.

La Tortuga Hostel

Not my style of hostel - young drunk English kids & music blaring through the whole hostel until 6am. May be another travellers paradise with a pool & big bar. Paying 26,000 I expect a seat on the toilet.

El Viajero Cartagena Hostel

Cartagena, Colombia

Lacking in a bit of atmosphere & very moody staff. Facilities & location great plus good wifi. The fact they don't have proper lockers & instead have small (very loud & beepy) safes in the room is annoying as they need to be used at all hours.

Dreamkapture Hostal

Guayaquil, Ecuador

A few hiccups here - they had lost our booking even though we were communicating about potential galapagos tours. They also failed to mention that it was not possible to book flights or research tours on Sundays which mean we booked a more expensive flight online to leave on Monday. A lot of cruises leave on Monday so good to get to the island Friday or Saturday to book.

Kokopelli is just ok. The atmosphere was pretty flat when I was there. I went to Loki (not my scene people wise but amazing facilities) and then checked into misfits which is just simple beach huts just at the edge of town ... My version of paradise

My second kokopelli & while I liked paracas more this as a solid option in cusco. They do great discounts around town. It you want to take advantage of the 10pc discount at other kokopelli locations don't ask the staff to call through as we have had two reservations lost that way now. Email only.

I was surprised by how comforting pie dra was after seeing fairly scathing reviews of all the hostels in town. Warm comfy beds and hot showers were my two key wishes coming off the salt flats and both were present. Bolivia-slow internet was present and a pretty average breaky were the only downsides.

Only stayed here one night before meeting friends at Lao. This one is a little more party with lots and lots of activities for guests to meet people. I personally preferred the chilled out vibe at Lao but would happily stay at either again

Destino26

Montevideo, Uruguay
91%

A great hostel with all the facilities but a few factors mean the atmosphere falls short. My dorm room over 3 days had myself, a 60 European man and a Spanish speaking mum and her 7-8 year old kid which I've never seen in a hostel before! The tv in the centre of the one inside hangout area meant most people stuck to siting silently on wifi so not to disturb the tv watchers. Maybe it would be amazing at other times!

Te definition of relaxation. Hammocks galore, chilled out but very friendly staff and owner plus a good availability of activities if you want. As a converted house the facilities are functional but basic bit I promise once you eat their asado that won't matter! Book ahead in high season

Zing

absolutely crazy manager seemed to wake up up screaming at an unsuspecting backpacker who dared to whisper in the corridor after 10pm. He kicked out more people at 3am than I can count. I had a private room with ensuite to kept to myself (as I used to live in Sydney and just wanted a private place to crash at night while I was recovering from jetlag), and it was a big room with everything I needed.

Owner Comment (Hide)
The night manager is employed to keep the hostel quiet at night for the benefit of all residents.We would and have not kicked out ANYONE (this year) at 3am! We pride ourselves on having a quiet hostel as this is what most people want.

What a beautiful place! There seems to be a lot of long-termers here, which makes it a very family, homely environment. Somehow my bookings was lost, but they managed to find us a place to stay with no hassles.
