The staff here are excellent. They were always more than happy to help book tours and transfers and always go above and beyond. The hostel was a bit quiet as it seems they host a lot of school trips. The location was awesome and very close to the main square so you can walk everywhere.

Hostal Antiguo

Medellin, Colombia

Great hostel. A little sanctuary in the middle of the city. From the Airport: Outside the terminal turn right and head to the end of the taxi rank to find signs for the bus service or the white buses themselves. They head all the way to Hotel Nutibara which is then 4 blocks from the hostel. From the City Center: Head to the street behind Hotel Nutibara where the buses leave approx. every 15mins starting from 3:30am with the last bus service leaving at 9pm and take about 50mins to and from.

Hostel is in a good location and the staff are helpful. Good vibe to make new friends and party with. The only issue was the WiFi, they need to invest in better WiFi equipment that can handle multiple simultaneous connections and also give better coverage to all areas of the hostel. The aircon was great to have at night!

This Hostel is brand new (July 2014). It is basically an ex 3 star Hotel that is now a Hostel. In fact they day I arrived it had the old Hotel name still up and the next day it had the New Che Lagarto signage. Great location near the bus terminal and restaurants. Very friendly and helpful staff. They just need to make filtered water easily available on the main and 1st floors.

This is the most fun hostel in Byron for the general backpacker. The staff are super friendly and organise a lot of interactive events. The layout and atmosphere of the hostel makes it the easiest in town to make new friends to explore Byron with, which is especially good if travelling alone or in pairs. It is less than 100m from the two major backpacker nightclubs, supermarket, cinema, bus terminal and cheap restaurants. Fast wifi when less than 3 ppl use it. They just need aircon in rooms.

Excellent hostel that my friend recommended to me and now I am doing the same for you. Located very close to the subway (Makes it easy to transfer from the Airport). They offer guided tours from reception everyday which make seeing Mexico City a lot of fun. Met lots of cool ppl from all over the world. Dinner is included and was tasty. It was a party hostel for sure, but was also very quiet when I was in bed for a day from bad street food.

I decided to stay at this hostel again due to my wonderful first experience. The second time around was exactly what I expected nothing less than perfect service and a fine stay. The best thing about this time is that I got a bus to Montreal and the bus terminal is next door, I also walked there to get a cheap $16 bus to the airport one morning so it is very convenient.

This was an awesome hostel. We stayed there for Halloween. From the moment we got there the hostel was celebrating in full swing. The atmosphere made the best impression of any hostel ive been to. They then put on a free meat loaf dinner and had pumpkins for us to carve out jackolanterns. They organised a lot of activities for the night and the staff provided some of the best customer service I have ever had. Highly recommended to party or just relax.

This is the funnest hostel in the area. The staff know how to party and show you a good time. They offer free breakfast, lunch and dinner which means you can use your money on other fun staff. I moved to another hostel but I wish I had of stayed here my whole visit.

I had a lot of fun at this hostel. It is located about a 5 min walk over the river from the Central Metro Station. (Not central station). Security is good and the staff are excellent, they even took us out one night. Your not meant to drink alcohol there, but I managed a few beers. The communal area allows you to easily meet new friends. Comic fans will love the artistic graffiti on the walls and in the toilets. Good eating spots and supermarkets just down the road. Enjoy.


Copenhagen Airport Hostel

The Hostel offers modern facilities, free internet and is clean overall. There was a minor leaking problem but nothing major. I found it to be convenient with a 10-15 min walk from the airport. The closest Metro station is also located at the airport and you just use the free shuttle to get to the other side near the hostel. If you don\'t mind learning and using the metro system it is very easy to get into and out of town (20mins) and the metro runs all night fri-sat for going clubbing.
