Good location with friendly staff. No secure luggage storage and the kitchen a bit messy but we only stayed for 1 night and enjoyed it here.

Short taxi ride away from the bus station (take black taxis!) Roberto and Bryan are so welcoming and really looked after us...free bottle of beer on arrival :) Organised our early morning taxi to the airport. Room basic but clean and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone staying for a few days in Arica.

Hostal Sol de Oro, Arequipa, Peru

4th Feb 2014

Friendly, cosy little hostel just 5 minutes from Plaza de Armas. Not the nicest area, but the hostel is very secure and the staff go to a lot of trouble to make sure they know who comes in and out at any time of day (even for tours picking up at 3am!). We booked tours and onward travel from here with no issues, all staff speak reasonable English which made a big difference. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the TV was great on tired evenings. The games room also has all you need!

25th Jan 2014

This was our home away from home in Peru. We spent four days here before our Inca trek and were delighted they had room for us when we came back to recover! The hostel is on a safe stretch close to the main square, right beside Jacks and Paddys and lots of other nice restaurants, pubs, shops etc. The staff were great and room service were very patient when we needed more time to sleep in the mornings. The room was basic but very spacious and with an ensuite. Free breakfast and coca tea! Do it!

Jailhouse Accommodation Christchurch, Christchurch, New Zealand
9.7
19th Jan 2014

We were glad we chose this place on our second pass through Christchurch. It can be a difficult place to get around as it is very spread out but we had a nice centre here with some restaurants, pubs etc around. The hostel itself is top-class, staff are welcoming and everything follows a jailhouse theme but the rooms are more comfortable and facilities better than you'd expect! Would recommend.

Pleasant, helpful staff and good location to enjoy Queenstown. A pieceful and clean, well-run place...except for a few guests! Great place to relax and have fun, lots of good humour around the place. Close to the centre of town, we were busy while we were in Queenstown so this place was perfect. Would recommend.

We only had one night and staff made sure we made the most of it, with lots of suggestions and helpful advice. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Location was good, a short walk from the bus station and close to the Polynesian Spa - would recommend a visit. Quiet spot, perfect for relaxing or venturing into town. Would recommend.

Hostel is located on the outskirts of town and up a few intimidating hills! Not to be confused with other YHA around the corner! Within walking distance to bus station and major attractions such as Skytower etc.Room was small but comfortable and hostel seems quiet. Breakfast available for a few dollars. Kitchen is big and always clean. Nice staff.

Good hostel in a good location. Comfortable room, but quite noisy - comes across as a party hostel. Normally perfect given it is a backpacker hostel just didn't suit us as we arrived in the morning after a long flight! Staff are nice and try to make the most of your stay. Close to the train station so it's easy to get around.

Lovely big rooms in a great location. Place is spotless. Staff were friendly and welcoming. They helped us organise trips and transfers and made sure we made the most of our four day stay in Chiang Mai. Don't think we would have seen half as much if it wasn't for the encouragement from the main receptionist, a lovely woman who would see you off in the morning and welcome you back at night, whatever the time of night. Great guesthouse and good value for money. Would recommend to everyone.

Stayed here because it was the cheapest bed i could find. the hostel is ok and in a good location. Alot of the people staying there seemed to be long termers or working there and were kinda rude. the staff at reception are excellent and very helpful. no atmosphere but its fine if you're looking for a cheap place to sleep.
