Corcovado Rio Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The hostel has a beautiful courtyard/pool area. The rooms have small lockers for your things. It's in a quiet location and has a great bus depot to connect to the rest of the city just a few minutes walk away. Breakfast is decent, and is good value for money, when it's not Carnival prices. The owner is nice and helpful. The bathrooms could be cleaned more often. A good hostel overall and I definitely recommend.

Willy Fogg Hostel

Montevideo, Uruguay

Fun, colourful hostel. There's nice lounging areas and a rooftop terrace to hang out on. The rooms are spacious enough and have lockable cubbies. The staff are great and accommodating. The guy who cleans the bathroom works around the clock making sure things are clean. Breakfast is OK, and the kitchen could be better to cook in. All in all a great place to stay and I definitely recommend.

Hostel Colonia

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay

Great location. The building has a nice courtyard to hang out in. There's no lockers for your things in the room, however they have little lockable cubbies behind reception. The staff seem good, but didn't have much interaction. The kitchen was decent to cook in. Breakfast was really good. Decent value for money.

El Guembe Hostel House

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

Nice dorms, awesome to have a quiet air conditioner in the room! Good breakfast, okay kitchen, good location.

Alvear Hostel

Cordoba, Argentina

Set in a beautiful and spacious building, it's a family run hostel. The staff are nice and helpful. The dorms are spacious and have lockers for your belongings. Decent kitchen to cook in. Only disappointing thing is breakfast, which could be improved greatly by switching to real bread, not the sugar infused packaged biscuit bread. That would be a start, but just my opinion. Other than that, it's a decent hostel with a good location to the rest of the city. Would recommend staying.

Art Factory Palermo

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Colourful hostel with great lounge areas. The staff were nice and friendly. Breakfast was great! The bunk beds were put together well and very comfy. The kitchen was tiny to cook in with more than one other person. All in all, a great place, with a great location. Highly recommend.

Pax Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Decent location, being just a couple minutes walk to the heart of San Telmo. There's a nice bar area in the downstairs to hang out in. The staff were good and helpful. The showers were fantastic, and breakfast was good too. The downsides were the bunk beds seem old and really shaky, and the kitchen is not very well stocked at all. However, it's a cheap place to stay and it does the job.

Patagonia House

Punta Arenas, Chile

Stayed for a week at this hostel. The staff are really great, extremely helpful at organising tours. The bathrooms are new and always clean. The internet was extremely fast. The kitchen was big and well equipped. Only a few minutes walk to the centre of town. Definitely recommend.

Cruz del Sur Hostel

Ushuaia, Argentina

Booked for 1 night, but ended up staying for a week here. It's a colourful, family run hostel with a good atmosphere. The staff were fantastic, the breakfasts were great, and the bathrooms were extremely clean. The only downside is a tiny kitchen. Would absolutely recommend staying here.

La Camorra Hostel

El Bolson, Argentina

The owner was extremely nice, he had greeted us with a beer and a pizza. (Best welcoming ever) However they couldn't find our booking, and another couples' booking the day after. It seems to be a bit of an issue there. The kitchen was good to cook in. The rooms were clean. It's a bit of a walk to town, but there's two big supermarkets close by. Not a spectacular hostel, but not an awful one either.

Universal Traveller's Lodge Hostel

Bariloche, Argentina

Probably the warmest hostel in S.A. prefect for those cold windy days. The owner and the rest of the staff are amazing. They were incredibly helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was good and featured homemade bread. The 6 bed dorm was spacious and the rooms are carpeted and extremely clean, which gives it a home feel to it. The heated pool is an absolute plus. Can't say enough great things, loved staying here.


Great and colourful hostel. Staff were wonderful, and the breakfast was filling. I especially loved the big beds and the drapes covering them when you're sleeping in the dorm rooms for a little privacy. Just a few minutes walk to the either of the different metro lines. Would definitely recommend this place.

Mendoza Backpackers

Mendoza, Argentina

The breakfasts are the highlight here. The kitchen is in a desperate need of supplies making it nearly impossible to cook. Some of the rooms are really tiny, so bit of the luck lf the draw. The staff are helpful, and the rooftop bar is nice. Overall, it's good for what you pay.

Casa Volante Hostal

Valparaiso, Chile

We stayed here because of the great reviews, and this place lived up to it. Most helpful staff I've come across. Great fruit bowl you can help yourself to all day long. Bathrooms were spotless and the showers were hot. Just a phenomenal hostel. Can't recommend enough. Plus REAL coffee and tea available throughout the day too.

Backpackers San Pedro

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Rarely in S.A. do I come across 1 good kitchen in a hostel, but this place has 2 well stocked kitchens for use. The nightly campfires really adds to the atmosphere. The staff were great, and if you like cats, this is your place. One suggestion is to add a sign on the road for people looking for the hostel as it can be a bit tricky to find as there aren't labelled street names where the hostel is. Definitely recommend staying there.

7 Patas Hostel

Sucre, Bolivia

Nothing but great things to say about this place. Had one of the best kitchens I've used in the past 5 months in South America. Definitely recommend.

HI-Onkel.Inn 1886

La Paz, Bolivia

A bit expensive, but ok relatively compared to the rest of La Paz accommodations. Clean and have a solid breakfast included.

Kantaya Hostel

Puno, Peru

Had a great time there. Staff was friendly and helpful. There's a good breakfast in the morning too.

Ukukus Hostel

Cusco, Peru

The staff that work there are great, extremely helpful.

Supertramp Hostel

Machu Picchu, Peru

Staff were great, the rooftop bar is good, and the bathrooms were mostly always clean. The breakfast is timed out for those leaving to Manchu Picchu in the wee hours in the morning, which is major plus. It's a bit pricey, but what isn't in Aguas Calientes, so it's ok in comparison.

Atawkama Hostel

Cusco, Peru

Solid hostel. Nice courtyard, decent breakfast, and good wifi, along with hot showers. I'd definitely recommend it.

Ekeko Hostel

Lima, Peru

The staff that work there were extremely nice and helpful. We arrived at the hostel off the night bus at 6am and they allowed us to check into the room. There's a modest kitchen to cook in and a simple continental breakfast included. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Hotel San José

Piura, Peru

Very clean hostel! Good breakfast in the morning. Best of all was the staff there. They were extremely helping and incredibly nice. I highly recommend staying there if you find yourself in Piura.

Hostal Yakumama

Cuenca, Ecuador

Clean facilities, great location, and nice staff too. Good value for money, and would stay there again

Iguana Backpackers

Montanita, Ecuador

It has a great location and great atmosphere. The security is not the best. Our room had a hole in the window for anyone on the street to come in through. There's a locker in the room, but it's not big enough to hold big travel backpacks. I found the fact there was no way to close the door unless it's locked, to be rather annoying, because there's no door handle, which means if you don't have diligent roommates, your door is open to everyone. If you've come to party, it's your place for it.

Dreamkapture Hostal

Guayaquil, Ecuador

Staff was great. Loved the pool! Breakfast was of good value too. Would definitely stay there again.

Hostal D' Mathias

Banos, Ecuador

Very new and extremely clean hostel. The family that runs it are incredibly nice and helpful. Would easily return there. Would recommend to anyone staying in Baños.

Vibes Hostel

Quito, Ecuador

Good hostel for what it is. Staff was great. Great location if you want a place in La Marissa. It's definitely a party hostel, so if that's you, its prefect.

La Casa de Cecilia

Mindo, Ecuador

Many of the rooms are set in their two newer cabins which were really clean and tidy. The staff was helpful for booking tours. Enjoyed staying there, plus a great location next to the chocolate tours place.

Colonial House Quito

Quito, Ecuador

Great hostel! I'd recommend to anyone looking for a great place in Old Town
