Meridian Court Hotel

We were greeted at reception with a fruit juice and total efficiency which was great after our long trip. We did have an issue with the shower which was looked at immediately and as they could not fix it we were given a new room. Really impressed by the service

La Tosca Hostel

Puerto Madryn, Argentina
100%

This was an excellent hostel. The staff were friendly (to be greeted by name over the intercom at 6.30am after a very long bus trip was great) and helpful with informtion about the local area and trips to take. They did not push the trips but gave options and the tour company they used were fabulous too. The hostel is very clean and well laid out. Large lockers with lock for your things, easy to walk to supermarkets, banks etc. Staff listened and noted feedbac too. Would highly recommend

Backpackers House Paraty

Paraty, Brazil

When we stayed the owner was away so maybe its different when he's there but it didn't look like the bathrooms (which were tiny) were cleaned at all while we were there. It wasn't nice as a lot of people were sharing one bathroom. The bin in our room wasn't emptied either. Rooms were tiny and there is one central locker which made getting your stuff difficult as you had to find a staff memeber (not always around). Good location next to bus station. Good place to meet travellers. Cramped hostel.

Overnativa Green Hostel

Ilha Grande, Brazil

Christina was fabulous and the dinners she cooked were amazing - a definite must if you stay here. Great value for money. Bit of confusion on availability - some people had to move out or change rooms when there were beds available. Make sure you check with Christina to be sure. Quiet location close to the beach not far from facilities or the nightly island party but far away enough to get some sleep. Rooms a little small but the same around the island. Lockers available and good breakfast.

Arenal Backpackers Resort

La Fortuna, Costa Rica
69%

Quite noisy hostel with music from the bar and then club acreoss the street, but very clean. Didn't like that they left windows wide open after cleaning your room so anyone could get in your room. Limited air con with no control so froze at night, too hot in day. Only one guy on reception who was very helpful and friendly but they need more staff as it was busy. Food overpriced in cafe and no kitchen or fridge but not far from cheaper options. Overall OK hostel to stay in.

Good clean option not to far from the centre. A little noisy but I had a room near the front desk! Very basic breakfast but very helpful staff. Hostel security was good but no lockers in the room.

Purple Palms was a fantastic place to stay - the staff are so friendly and helpful - its like staying a friends house. The remote controlled TV in my room was the icing on the cake.
