The hostel had a great atmosphere and it was easy to meet other interesting travellers. viviania and reuben who worked at the hostel were super friendly & helpful. the night/weekend girl was a different story. She didnt do much except hang out with her boyfriend. she did call us a taxi to the airport. the taxi driver that she called insisted on 40,000 when 25,000 is the going rate. We didnt pay it but the taxi driver claimed that she was the one who suggested that price. so just beware.
We spent two very hot, crowded and loud nights at this hostel. the fans in our room didnt work properly. what little common areas there were, were taken over by a group of 10 loud and rude aussies. staff made no attempt to control this group who partied until 2 am both nights, even though they claim to have a quiet after 11.00 rule. when we left staff was reminding us that we had to check out in an hour. we couldnt get out of there fast enough, moved to sheck hostel across the street.
Puebla is a beautiful city definitely worth a visit. The hostel was in a gorgeous building, we found it clean, there is a good kitchen, showers had hot water and the dorm beds were comfortable. The location is very close to the zocalo and other historical attractions. Continental breAkfast is ample including cereal, toast, coffee and tea. Staff was helpful.
We stayed in the 8 bed dorm room. While we had a good stay, the room was hot and there were a lot of mosquitos at night, there were no fans. The location didnt have many tiendas, restaurants... Around. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast was varied and good. The showers were very good and there was always hot water.
We enjoyed our stay at villa mango as it is a beautiful home close to carrizalillo beach (10 mins), the market (7mins) and nice restaurants. It is about a 25 minute walk to the centre of town/zicatela beach or a 7 peso collectivo ride. We like walking and exploring, so for us this wasnt a big deal. There is a great hostess and the hostel has a good atomsphere. We were there right after semana santa so it was a bit quieter but still fun.
We didn't have any problems with hot water like other reviewers have mentioned. Our room was great, very comfortable matress and lots of blankets for the cold nights. Amazing location, well equipped kitchen and great internet.
We enjoyed our stay here. the staff is great! Raul helped us with tours, shuttles, advice... The other staff members are equally helpful. Antigua is not a cheap city, the hostel is great value for money and includes breakfast. the kitchen is decent and the shower was hot. Our private room was basic/dated but we were comfortable. We will stay there again if we return to antigua.
Outstanding stay, a lot of attention to detail. We booked 3 nights, stayed week and would have stayed longer if we had more time. There are 2 kitchens that are the best equipped we have seen in 3 years of hostel travel.this is not a party hostel more a place to relax and feel at home.
I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to stay here but if you cross the border and want A break, The beach and facilities are great. Staff was pretty uninterested, they said that didn't have our reservation,didn't give us any info...there is a book with info by the menus that is helpful. Food is average, there are cheap options if you look for them and other restaurants on the beach. Extremely quiet at night. Not really a backpacker place.
We had a reservation for 3 nights but only stayed one night. We booked the dorm and the travelers on the bunk below were extremely inconsiderate, two people sharing a bed and a puppy that cried all night, who put the fan onto only themselves. The dorm was extremely hot. The owners were nice and did ask the couple to leave but we had already found another hostel. It was too bad because we were looking forward to using the kitchen there.
We loved the lake it was beautiful and relaxing. The rooms here are basic, so I would recommend the dorm because it has a better view and the other rooms did not seem worth the price. There is no kitchen here and the restaurant/bar are over priced. The food is pretty bland and seems to have sat around. The public beach had cheaper beer and fresher food.
The vibe is the only thing missing from this hostel. It has great amenities breakfast, pool, kitchen and coffee. But most travelers were on their phone...the whole time. More like a hotel than a hostel.
we liked the place, staff was friendly and the pool was amazing.it is the most reasonable place we found to stay in iquitos with a pool. the location is a far from the main square but the walk seemed safe. a motto drive is only about s/3. there werent any tiendas around which we found inconvenient. the place could definitely use a coat of paint. we met people but there isnt much atmosphere but iquitos is place where most people just stay a couple of nights to bookend a jungle adventure.
Dorms are new and comfortable. We didnt use the kitchen but it looked basic. The pool was amazing! Great spot on the beach where you can sit and watch dolphins play.
The only complaint i have is the pool was closed for the first day we were there(due to a lack of water in the area). we had stayed here before and koko has improved. we liked it last time but the foreign volunteers were brutal. It seems that koko is under new management and they actually expect them to work and do a good job.breakfast is way more organized, not first come first serve in the bar area. you actually get eggs, juice, coffee or tea.the double ensuite room is really nice! recommended
the owners were very nice. I know they are trying to improve the hotel but it is definitely in a transitional phase and might be ahead of them. There was basically no water for most of our stay. Some rooms have been redone and are better than others, we ended up in newer rooms because they had more water ( a trickle). There was scafolding up by our intial rooms and windows didn't lock. The rooftop is pretty dated, lights don't work... You need to take cabs to most places
Felix is very nice, He let us have our room at 5am. The hotel is located on the main square. Our room was very bright and clean. We had a great view of tthe park. Therew is a nice roof top patio. We had hot water the whole time we were there. This has more of a hotel atomsphere than a hostel atomsphere. Laundry was expensive.
The rooms here were very basic and we had no hot water. The common areas of the hostel were good. Olon is a nice beach. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Our first night the owner was nice enough to give us a ride into town.
The beds were really comfortable here. The facilities were very nice. The walk to get here is not far and it is a great view and is very quiet. Breakfast was good.
This hostel is very nice and bright. The rooms are big, comfortable and they actually had a rack on the wall to hang stuff. Bathrooms were really nice and always lots of hot water. The atomsphere at the hostel over christmas was really fun. Loved the all day coffee.
We got here later than expected after a 31 hour bus ride. We were hoping to get a beer and small snack but nothing was open in the neighborhhood. It was 10 at night but it was also saturday even the sol mall was closed. The hostel is closer to the airport than the bus station. Rooms are basic. The owner was nice.i think that i would look for something closer to more bars and restaurants.
Great alternative to staying in miraflores! We liked the location because it was closer to the linea bus station and the airport. They let us check in at 6 am even though the normal check in was 3 pm. The building is really nicely done and the showers were really good. it can be a bit noisey in the hostel, things echo and the hostel is above other commercial spaces.
The location is a bit out of town but it is close to the start of alot of the hikes and the companies pick you up. We walked into town one day and it took about 25 minutes. It is well worth it to stay here as the owners are very accommodating and friendly. For example, we arrived at 6.00 am and got our room with free breakfast and one night we got home later than is normal from a day hike and marujas husband was outside waiting for us because he was so worried about us. They made dinner for us
it was an uninviting vibe in the hostel, it was similar to staying at a great aunts place where you feel you have to be really quiet and not touch anything.so the atomsphere is definitely lacking. The lady who cleaned the hostel was really strange and kept getting mad at us for using the bathroom. she told us to use another bathroom and then got mad us when we used that bathroom and told us to use another one.
The hostel was nice. The common areas are big and the furniture is comfortable. Our room which was a double ensuite was new. the door was thin and there was an open area for ventilation. This wouldn't have been a problem except that they do not enforce their rules about being quiet after 11pm, allowing guests to party from 1-3am. Our room was basically in the smoking area so it was loud/smoky. We were fine with this because we want people to have fun but it wasn't possible for us to block noise
The staff here was really nice. They gave us a huge room that had a lot of character. We loved eating breakfast on the roof top. The beds were comfy and the showers were nice and hot. The hostel is quiet and peaceful. The hostel is an older place and is quite dated, some of the furniture could be replaced but we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.
The staff was extremely helpful especially eduardo. He made us breakfast which was simple but very tasty.We loved the location in the San blas area, close to bars and restaurants. The hostel has a basic Peruvian style. The beds were really comfortable with real duvets and about three blankets. The only criticism is that the common areas were a bit chilly.
The service at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The location at the 4 corners is great, lots of bars, restaurants.... Without having to walk up hill. The room was nice and spacious, we had really nice hot showers and our room had strong enough internet signal to Skype. There weren't alot of common spaces and we barely saw any other travelers, so I wouldn't recommend the provenzal for people who are looking to meet up with other travelers. Breakfast was fine,brought our own fruit/peanutbutter
We liked the homey feel of this hostel. It was clean, spacious and Ricardo was super helpful. The kitchen was nice and the hostel is close to the central market so it is easy to buy great things to make. When the weather is nice the upstairs patios are great spots to relax. We thought that the beds were not comfortable and the directions to the hostel were hard to follow because Sucre doesn't have a lot of street signs.
It is a nice place to stay, a lot of common spaces. Water came into our room when it rained but there was a table where we could put our packs so they did not get wet. The pool area is really nice.
Our room and shower were extremely nice and clean at this hostel. It is located about a 15 minute walk from the central plaza. We had read reviews about this and had decided to stay here anyway because we like walking but , it isn't an amazing neighborhood so we ended up taking cabs home at night. If we had to do it again, we would want to stay closer to the center.
Casa arbol was a little gem. It is very close to the main square but on a quiet street with a nice courtyard. Nadine is super nice and accommodating. Cayafate is a great town.we wished that we had more time to spend in cafayate at casa arbol.
We stayed over Christmas and had a great time. It is a big hostel but there are a lot of common spaces to relax or meet other people. The pool is really small but it was so hot that it was a nice to have. Free use of the the washing machine was really helpful. The hostel is located about 15 minutes walk from the main square. The staff was really helpful.
Mike was really helpful when we first arrived and had great suggestions about the city. We. Loved his enthusiasm and friendliness. We loved the pool room which is where we stayed, it had a lot of character. The kitchen and dining room were really nice. En
We felt that this hostel was very average and were surprised by its very high rating. It is located near furniture stores and hardware stores in the city. The common areas were very cramped and we were never really able to use the kitchen because it was so crowded. The kitchen was kind of dated and gross anyway.
the hotel was fine but it wasn't stand out. even though the hotel is only 200 meters from town we were urged to take a taxi at night. i think that it would have just been easier to stay in town.
Very nice room, not huge but nice... especially the shower and comfortable bed. It was brand new, in a great location and had a nice roof top patio.
