The hostel has great clean rooms, the staff is friendly and the location is perfect. The breakfast is definitely a plus. My only complaint would be about the noise, as from the rooms you can hear loud and clear every sound from the inner patio. The staff should enforce some kind of quiet hours. When we were there some guests kept talking and making loud noises well after midnight.
The rooms are small but nice and clean. The air conditioning in the room is a necessity in the warm season: Merida can get horribly hot. The wifi works mainly in the common area, where it can be hard to stay when it's hot outside. The location is fine, next to the bus station but far away from everything else. Going back at night doesn't feel completely safe though. The breakfast is nice but not as big as we hoped. It doesn't fill you up until lunch.
We got a double room with shared bathroom. The common areas are very clean and they work all day to keep them tidy. The roof terrace is perfect to relax. We didn't try the jacuzzi but it looked pretty nice too. The location is great if you're just getting to Cancun or leaving town, and there's plenty of restaurants and eateries nearby. A bit less convenient if you're planning to spend time at the beach, in which case you'll have to take a bus. Good breakfast. We'd definitely return.
Cheap hostel, good location and free wifi. The hostel's parking is a joke (two parking spots). The kitchen is tiny and rathern worn out but it works fine, if you avoid peak hours. Actually the whole place looks rather old and worn out, but it's ok for a night or two. The main drawback is the number of long-term guests. It feels like staying at someone's house, with all their friends hanging around: it's hard to fit in.
Nice rooms, noisy hostel. The location is good, very close to transport hubs and interesting neighborhouds. Very convenient steak restaurant deals nearby.
Great position and clean. The staff is super friendly, they organize evening activities with the guests every day. The common area is very nice, and so are the rooms upstairs. Perhaps the rooms could use some air conditioning, since a fan is not enough for Melaka's heat and the rooms tend to get quite hot during the day. Fortunately you can stay in the common room, much cooler. Some rooms overlook the common area, which can be noisy at night, depending on the other guests' activities.
We spent five nights at this hotel, and ended up feeling a bit sorry to leave. The owner is a lovely person and makes you feel comfortable all the time. It's a short walk to city center (about 15 min) but the area is packed wih guesthouses and a few restaurants so you won't have to go downtown if you don't feel like it. Make sure to rent a bycicle, it's a great way to visit the Angkor park.
We had troubles finding the Guesthouse as it is quite far from the town center, its location is not indicated anywhere and their google map was wrong. The owner is very friendly and the restaurant area is nice, but the room wasn't exactly clean and the shared bathrooms were filthy. Both toilets broke the night we were there, which made for an unpleasant surprise the following day. Even with free transfer to the border, we would still recommend to find a place closer to the center.

Anonymous building. Rooms have concrete floor. Third floor is hot as hell during day and night. We would look for other alternatives in Chiang Mai rather than coming back here.
A great hostel with a friendly owner. The garden is just fantastic to chill after a hot Chiang Mai day. The rooms on the upper floor can get very hot during the day and the fan can't help much about it. At night the room is cool. Located in a quiet part of downtown, all is easily accessible on foot. We liked it so much that we are going there again in a few days.
Right next to Khaosan road, so great position but definitely not quiet (which is why we chose it, based on previous reviews), at least not our room: noise from the street, aircon engine, water pump and fellow guests will keep you company all the time. Barely any English spoken by staff. Room with fan is small and very hot.
Great position and very friendly owner. Be sure to follow his advice about small local restaurant.
Good value if you have a JR Pass since it's a short walk from a JR statiion. Shops and restaurants nearby. The walls are rather thin, and you can easily hear conversations in other rooms. The room next to the entrance can be especially annoying in this sense. Next time we would ask for a different room.
Eve's guesthouse is a few minutes walk from the central station, within walking distance from... everything! The breakfast is excellent and the place is rather quiet. Staff was helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay here again!
We only stayed there for one night. It's great for the price you pay. Staff is nice, double room and bathrooms were clean, and subway station is just a few meters away. Walls are thin... bring your earplugs.
Just go there, and stay as long as you can. The guys are simply great, the atmosphere is wonderful... and don't miss their "asado"!! A few blocks from the bus station and close to the centre. We hope to go there again!
We spent only one night, so can't properly judge the place. It's in a quiet residential area, maybe a little far from the "interesting" places. The double room was ok. Next time we would probably look for a place closer to the action... or to the subway.
We really loved this small family-run hostel. Paulina y Cristobal will make you feel at home, and help you in any possible way (with a lot of information about Torres del Paine). Some good bars and restaurants around the hostel, and the whole town just a few steps away. We would definitely stay there again.
It's a bit out of the centre, but Calafate is a small town so it's just a matter of minutes. The atmosphere is great, with a huge lounge and common dinners. We stayed in a dorm with private bathroom. Would stay there again.
One of the best hostels we stayed in Argentina. The owners are friendly and helpful, especially to arrange tours in the area: they book the tour for you and give you early-breakfast if needed. We'd stay there again.
Close to the town center, a few blocks from everything you might need. The double was actually a small apartment, with ensuite bathroom and kitchen. The staff was very welcoming and helpful, but they tend to try to sell you their tours - you can get better prices at the bus station. It would have been perfect, if it wasn\'t for a few HUGE cockroaches (4cm!!) that decided to \"share\" the room with us... this is probably a common \"feature\" in this region.
We only spent there one night. It is easy to reach the hostel by bus from the Retiro station, and there are lots of bars and restaurants within a walking distance. Hostel itself is OK, although the double room is way too small and was kind of dirty. Staff was helpful and really friendly.
We arrived 9.30pm to find out that the owner \"forgot\" our reservation and already gave away our room. We were offered a few uncomfortable sofas in a Morrocan lounge for almost the same price. We had to accept it considering the hour and the location (outskirts of medina). There is ONLY ONE shared bathroom, small, filthy and with extremely low ceiling: the \'shower\' is actually a hole in the ground. Apart from this breakfast was OK and the girl working there was nice.
Lovely and clean pension in a spectacular position. This is not a hostel (so no common rooms) nor a b&b (no breakfast) but it is a perfect place to spend your days in San Sebastian: clean, quiet and in a great location.
