Lovely place to stay. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Rooms are big and comfortable with good beds. Bathrooms are large and with good showers. There is a great terrace to hang out. It is located around 5 minutes from the medina and around the same from the bus stop and grand taxi stand. Breakfasts are good. Highly recommend.
Great rias. Joe and his brother are warm and welcoming hosts and very informative about the few quirks of the place (such as getting the temp in the shower just right). The rooms are thoughtfully painted and decorated and the roof terrace is amazing, could hang out there for days! I also have to say they keep the place very very clean. As with many place little hard to find at first but after that very easy to navigate, about 5-10m walk to the plaza.
Really enjoyed our stay here. Very good setup with friendly and informative staff, good sized dorm rooms each with its own bathroom and good spaces to hang out including a terrace. It's about a 10 min walk to medina It is a bit of a young persons hostel and probably a bit of a challenge getting to sleep before midnight. Rooms could do with new pillows and additional lockers.
Great Riad for the price range. Very close to the square but also very quiet. Staff a very friendly, welcoming and helpful (note: only the guy who works nights speaks English). We ended up staying a couple of times, both occasions in doubles. Found room 3 the better of the two, bit smaller but a bit quieter during the day (the other was room 4). Good basic breakfast included.
Excellent hostel just outside Penzance (about 15 minutes walking). It is in a beautiful old manor house, set up taking perfect advantage of the building with crisp and clean spaces. Rooms are big and airy and beds very comfortable with nice touches such as a personal reading light and powerpoint along with normal things such as big lockers. Has one of the best set up hostel kitchens we have come across. Only two dowsides - the bathroom to person ratio could be better and late check in time (4pm)
Great hostel. Rooms (even 16 bed dorm) were spacious with nice personal touches. Nice classic bar area - great hot chocolates and a reasonable breakfast (costs extra). Recommend the boat from the airport as probably the best way into the city (and probably cheaper in the end). The only issue is that it is not on the main island so if you are here for a couple of days buy a daily/weekly travel card for water bus,
My second stay and here and just as good as the first. It may seem a little out of town but numerous transport options including the train, metro and numerous buses nearby it is not a problem. Not to mention the area as some of the best nightlife anyway. The hostel is kept very clean and the guys are constantly doing it up and adding improvements. Fantastic stay would highly recommend
Really liked it here. Large spacious hostel with comfortable and warm beds, nice hot and powerful showers, good sized guest kitchen along with a reaonably priced priced privately provided meals. Had decent internet and a good tv room with good selection of films. Stagf were very friendly and helpful - english spoken. The only slight thing is that to access some dorms you have to go in via another room - did not bother me much.

Good hostel. Good location between transport options, a supermarket and the party scene of el pablado but in a quiet neighbourhood. The hostel itself has reasonable sized dorms (although gcould do with underbed lockers/storage), good common areas and a big and well equiped kitchen and ok internet. Staff are very friendly and helpful and both spanish and english is spoken.
Decent hostel in a very central location. Dorms are spacious and with electronic lockers and underbed lockers plenty of room for valuables and large bags. Staff are very helpful. I find the music a bit loud and repetitious at times but was generally quiet after midnight. The air conditioning was either a godsend or an annoyance cant make up my mind but cartagena is pretty hot so probably the former. Good social areas, ok kitchen and ok wifi (although on my second stint did not work well)
Great Hostel with a great friendly vibe from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. The staff do a wonderful job of making sure the hostel lives up to its name and does feel like a community. I loved the group dinners fantastic idea. The rooms are comfortable although can experience stop street noise at times and there are a couple of good hang out areas as well as a good sized kitchen. Close to the old city and transport links which makes it ideal.
I ended staying 9 nights both in a single and a double. Great little set up. Rooms are set around a central attruim which lets lots of natural light into the common spaces and also as a couple of nice outdoor spaces. Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable and the dorm has its own large bathroom and is extremely clean with firndly staff. The downsides are that is a bit noisy due to it being on a busy road (ask for an internal room) and also is about a 20 minute walk to town (but it is flat)
Really nice place right in the centre of town. Good large spaces to hang out in and meet others and a decent sized kitchen and a small but atmospheric attic to watch movies in. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were ok and when i showered only managed Luke warm water Ut thats my only complaint.
Really good place. Bit of a party atmosphere, but even when I was there over Friday and Satruday night everyone goes out between 12-1 so after that it is extremely quiet, but could be a bit noisy if you want to sleep before then on the weekends at least. Good open spaces with reasonable sized dorms and with numerous lockers (albiet in the main common area), but kitchen was a little small maybe if your planning on cooking. Staff were extremely helpful, even though I only spoke little english.
Good hostel with large spaces and some of the largest dorms I have stayed in. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location could not be much better for the price. Similar setup to the other El Viajeros which is great if your staying in different locations.
It was my second time at this hostel on my return to BA and feel very comfortable almost like going home. The space, the vibe the Juans the staff a good value. The location is perfect and so very safe and the perfect area to stay in when in BA.. Thanks On the Road foe making the stay so comfortable.

Great setup. Dorms are normal size not large but roomy enough with under bed lockers and each has a large bathroom. Has a large dinning space / lounge and a good sized kitchen and is near enough to both beaches and the bus terminal.
Stayed in both a double and a dorm while i was here. Both are excellent value for money. Overall a good place in a reasonable location close to both beaches and the bus station. Staff were friendly and helpful. Kitchen was a good size compared to other hostels i have stayed at recently.
This time around stayed in a double and loved it. They may seem expendive initally for a hostel but are actually pretty good value for money with nice thoughtful touches more like a good b
It is a bit of surf hostel but a good one. You are made to very welcome from the moment you get there regardless of how busy it is (we were slightly off season but the first couple of nights the place seemed full) and I think that is its biggest selling feature. Dorms are well dorms maybe a bit dark but comfortable/roomy. Facilities were good, although fixing the stove so more gas comes out would be helpful and a through clean would do the place lots of good (its not dirty though). Will be back
Good hostel, with two good sized kitchens, good chill out areas and massive bedrooms in a great location in the old town. Staff were friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be the dorm we were in (6 bed, think room 6?) is really to small for 6 beds and truely feels like your on top of each other though fine for a couple of days i suppose
A really. Ice place. The dorm room was massive however the one we were in seemed to be the main access point into the rest of the accommodation so could be a. It noisy with people coming and going. Excellent location about a 50 meters from the bus terminal and helpful and friendly staff. It also has a pool which was. Ice to chill out by and in, kitchen was maybe a little small if everyone was cooking at once. Ut generally ok.
Awesome place. Small and intimate where you can actually get to know everyone and the owners and staff make you feel part of the family. Has a great chilled and safe atmosphere in fantastic location near transport as well as some excellent bars and restaurants. Rooms are large although if a light sleeper may want to request one away from the street front and good kitchen and over all very clean (Juan is always cleaning!!!!). We both really regretted leaving but will be back.
A good hostel that could benefit greatly from a little TLC but still more than reasonable and certainly good value for the price. Staff were friendly. Beds were comfortable and warm and the rooms are quite large with good sized lockers.
Really enjoyed it here, probably one of my favourite hostels in argentina. Has a real good setup with lots of space. Rooms (Dorms) each seem to have their own bathroom and are a reasonable size with good sized lockers and comfortable and warm beds. The real saviour is the nice outdoor area to chill in. Only complaint is could do with a bit more bits and peices in the kitchen - utencil wise.
Overall a good hostel with a good setup. Dorm Rooms were large and airy with good beds. There was a decent sized living space and good sozed kitchen and dining space. The location is also decent about 6 blocks from the main plaza and near the north market
Overall the place is great value for money. For me it was just lacking an overall atmosphere and in some ways just felt more like a hotel but they may have just been our experience. It has a large living area, helpful and friendly staff and dorms are spacious. The kitchen is quite tiny and would be nice to have a few extra blankets on the beds. It could benefit from a little touch up here and there but overall is good.
Awesome set up. Nice roomy and warm dorms with very comfy beds. Loved thr breakfast. It is a bit out of town but very worth it and there is a regular enough bus and overall the set up makes it worth it. The people that run the place ate amazing.
A delightful place to stay. It is like a little farm homestead out of town in beautiful lush green surroundings. Stayed in both a private and the dorms and both were good - spacious with nice thoughtful tastes. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Really good setup, wonderful welcoming atmosphere and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in a dorm and was quit spacious also had a large lounge space to hang out and well located close to town.
Wonderful. Set in a beautiful old house with big massive spaces . Dorms are comfortable and large has a nice relaxing lounge and a big kitchen. Staff are fab. Highly recommend!
Highly recommend. Nice place right on the water. Good size bedrooms with lots of natural light. Kitchen ,maybe a bit small if the place is full and everyone wants to use it but that is it. Staff are very friendly and helpful and was really sad to leave
Really fantastic hostel. The beds were so comfortable that looked forward to foing to bed everynif and it was hard to get up the next morning. Had a great friendly atmosphere, good large spaces including a large and well equiped kitchen and right by the bus station. The only downside I can think off is being next to the bus station could be a bit noisy if your a light sleeper - maybe
Overall an ok hostel that is getting a little run down - or maybe it has always been that way, I liked it though. It was in a reasonable location had everything you would expect a hostel to have along with friendly and helpful staff and was certainly the chepest. Maybe if you were staying longer you could feel different but certainly for 1-2 nights it was fine
Fantastic hostel. Extremely helpful staff, wonderful atmosphere large dorms with plenty of space and large lockers and a large kitchen area - you even get towels which is a nice touch for a hostel. My only complaint if you can call it that is that the dorms get a little hot as a result of the underfloor heating - so make sure you leave the window open.
We ended up only staying a 1 night but was overall good place to stay. As many other reviews have pointed out there are a number of rules posted but if you are a contentious traveller you will barely notice. The staff are a little direct which some could find rude, but otherwise very helpful and informative. Rooms were cosy and warm with lockers under each set of beds. We liked the little outdoor den where there was wifi. Only complaint was kitchen was too small for the amount of guests
A fantastic hostel. . It is slightly uphill from the bus station but less than a 10 minute walk - but you get the benefit of fantastic views over the town and lake. Staff are extremely helpful, rooms and beds were comfortable and good common areas to just hang out and overall very clean. Recommend their bbq good fun. There is a large supermarket nearby.
Its more a hotel with dorms wthan a hostal which has its costs and benefits. It does not quite get the traveller vibe of a normal hostel but you get nice big rooms, each with a seperate shower, bathroom and washsink along with enormous lockers and also large common spaces. The kitchen does not have any utencils and was a bit dirty a few of the days we were there but thats more other travlellers. The staff ere also very helpful and if you take cal-tur bus you can get dropped at the hostel.
Very nice place to stay. Dorm was spacious and beds were warm and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly. There is a reasonable sized common area and the kitchen is big enough for 2 to cook at. It is very entrally located.
Dont come here if your planning on leaving its just too hard. Its a wonderfully set up hostel with great staff and a great overall friendly vibe. You can book your activities through them (we did horse riding and hydrospeeding - both of which were good) but others seemed to rave about the other activities also. I would highly suggest partaking in the bbq if your there when your having one. We stayed in both the tent and 8 door dorm both of which were good
A good place to stay. The dorm we stayed in (5 bed) was a little cramped but the four door beds looked a bit more roomy. Overall there was a lot of room in the common area to chill out and the bathrooms were also large (although some of the showers onky had cold water). It also had a nice relaxed surfer vibe about it and was quite central.
A great place run by Christen who was extremely friendly and full great advice and help. We stayed in two different dorms and have to say the one by the window is nicer but both are good. There is a reasonable size kitchen to cook and a great provided breakfast with best variety we have had including amazing jams. We were extremely sad to leave great excuse to come back.
Absoultely awesome place, wonderful setup , location and staff. Breat breakfasts with actual variety, showers were always hot, wifi worked and the over place was tidy and clean. My only small complaint is the dorms could be bigger but are about average for what i have stayed in but can be little hatd with big rucksacks, they do have god sized lockers in the rooms though.
I reAlly enjoyed our stay here. It a well setup and friendly place to stay with a great atmosphere and staff that make you feel right at home. The only downside is that its a bit out of town around a 10-12 minute walk but thats good atleast we got some exercise.
This was a great find and one of our favourite hostels in bolivia. Like many hostels set in a old colonial house right near the main plaza but not too far a walk from the bus stop. The house itself is back from the plaza which makes it alot quieter. It has clean bathrooms and kitchen hot water (really hot water a nice bonus) and the living area was really lovely. The dorm was comfortable and there are lockers (outside the room). The owners were extremely helpful and friendly.
A old colonial house near the plaza. Its a bit run down but they are obviously slowly doing it up but still in its current state has a nice warm feel to it. The dorms were a little squashed but very comfortable and warm with lots of blankets. The wifi was ok but could only use around the reception and the water for showers were cold when went to use them. It has a very nice tv room if you want to chill out and watch some movies
We didnt actually end up staying (we wanted a bigger kitchen). The hostel itself is new and maybe a little disorganised, well felt that way, but otherwise looked fantastic. Its about three blocks from the main plaza, has a real nice resturant/ cafe and always has lots of things happening there. We both wish the hostel the best of luck as im sure it will be a great success
Had a really fantastic stay (infact ended up staying twice) and the staff were very helpful. The second time i was quite sick and managed to get a bed straight away which was awesome
Was a good hostel about a ten to fifteen walk to the plaza. Staff maybe initially a little bit pushy about island tours etc but maybe just trying to hard to be informative (it more or less the same cost doing a tour or independently). The dorm (mixed) was big and roomy and beds were comfortable if not a little soft for me. Overall good facilities and plenty of place just to chill out including hammocks on the roof and was clean.
An excellent place, only slight downfall was being up a hill ( but then it did have lovely views over the city). Staff we extremely helpful, positive and friendly. Free Breakfast was normal Peruvian fare but they also had a range of cheap paid options which were fantastic. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay
Absolutely fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay here. It has a fantastic vibe and atmosphere and wonderful staff. Oh and its clean, maybe too clean! It has more facilities than you can think off and a great place to stop and relax for a few days. Awesome awesome awesome we are so sad to be leaving
W stayed in a double and found the hostel was basic but very good. Staff were extremely helpful and the biggest plus of the place. We booked our flight over the nazca lines through the hostel and it was great (and same price as everywhere else). Good location central but not on main plaza so not too noisy. Its also possible to walk to the bus station but if you have luggage recommend catching a taxi (should be 3 soles)
We both had a great stay. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable of how to get to places around the city. Hostel was in a good location and very clean and well maintained. Stayed in a room on the roof which was good but could be a bit noisy for light sleepers but its not overly a noisy hostel.
Spent a wonderful 10 days here, great and friendly set up - basic (just a bed) but very pleasant. Very good location only 5 minutes walk back to main village and 20 minutes to what I thought was the best beach on Koh Chang althought bit of a drive (close to an hour) from the pier
