Great hostel with great staff. I would recommend Pura Vida hostel to anyone staying in Vama. The location was perfect.

Quite a good hostel with nice staff and a good location. They let us leave our bags before check-in and after check out. The reason for the lower grade on facilities is because while we were eating our food we noticed it was warm and told them the fridge was broken. They said it had just been off for 24 hours (they had forgotten to turn it on again after cleaning it). We ended up having to throw away a lot of our food.
Jasmina was very nice and we enjoyed her tour. When we picked the hostel it said there were lockers online, but that was not the case. Also, she said she would bring us breakfast in the morning, but when she finally came she said she would take us out instead, and then she was 4 marks short when the bill came so we had to pay 4 marks. We would not have gone out for coffee and bread, would have just eaten it in the hostel if we had known we would have to pay for it at the cafe. Good location.
Very good hostel but make sure you bring ear plugs. The bar is very noisy until late on weekend nights. Good location.
Great hostel in a beautiful location. Lots of information available about hikes in the Tatras and other activities. The staff were all great and went out of their way to make our stay a great one!

overall very good hostel, great value. i would stay there again.
decent hostel but the bar is not really what they make it seem to be. it is the size of a closet, a few blocks away and has a strange/confusing system of paying that no one at the bar understood. the deals were not as good as we were lead to believe, but the hostel was itself was fine.
great hostel, favorite in Japan. very clean and helpful staff.
I would stay here again-clean hostel, good common areas
overall good hostel-very clean and good kitchen/facilities-brewed coffee too!
Not a bad hostel while staying there, however the only hostel I have stayed in in Argentina or anywhere else in the world that made us leave the building at checkout. We were out of the room with plenty of time to spare, but were told we could not sit in the kitchen and eat our lunch because we had already checked out. they sent us out in the rain with our bags to wait until our ride left late in the afternoon. Ridiculous.
overall a good hostel, however, I didn't like that you could smoke inside which made the sitting area not very pleasant for non smokers. Also, the music is on pretty loud all the time and one of the staff members tends to yell and sing so if you are looking for that, it is good for you, but if you want some calm once in a while good luck.Good points were that the staff is friendly and totally willing to help you with whatever it is that you might need.The place is nice too, clean and organized
Another hostel that claimed it had things but it didn't. we left in the middle of our stay because we wanted a fun place for christmas and it did not have a working bar or wifi like it claimed. the kitchen is also the size of a closet and you have to check out dishes and pay a deposit. huge pain.
A great place to stay if you want to relax outside of the city. the staff are helpful and arranged a cheap and awesome bbq for everyone-however be ready to walk the 16km round trip if you want to go to Uspallata (or you can catch a bus a couple times per day). Overall a really nice place-I would recommend it.
well, it is not too bad for the price, but it definitely does not really have everything it offers on hostelworld-there is no pool, no internet other than wifi, no restaurant, it does sell some overpriced drinks but it took us half an hour to get someone to sell us one-meanwhile you are not permitted to bring your own. Other than not having half the stuff it claims, and being overall mediocre, it is alright, but I would not stay there again.
great hostel, good breakfast, I would stay again for sure.
the staff were very nice and helpful, it was kind of a strange place however. It used to be a kindergarden and you can tell. There are cartoons painted all over every possible surface and some of the bathrooms (sinks, showers) are miniature. Overall a decent place to stay.
A great value for the money, especially because you can eat all your meals there for free-A nice place but because they have so much food that people cook themselves the kitchen can be a bit of a zoo and a mess, and there are no lockers. Nice patio however and an overall nice place. I would stay again.
The hostel was great, clean and secure. The staff was very nice as well and brought us cakes and other treats on many occasions. I'd definately stay here again.
