Thanks Quisto for organising the Kruger tour, for checking afterwards and forwarding our comment, and for everything else we needed - you are a wonderful host. Not sure why the dog still went after me barking after two days, but at least she was quiet at night... Lovely hostel, good restaurant on the same grounds, recommended.

Thank you so much (again!) Alison and Cor (and the guy who organised the braai wood!) for your help and the lovely conversations about anything and everything. Many thanks to Sandra as well for the excellent Kruger Park tour, she is an absolutely brilliant and enthusiastic guide - and provides yummieyummie home-made muffins for breakfast. Diverse wildlife right within the hostel premises (birds, mainly) and right next to it (zebras on the road). Highly recommended!

Location is not on the beach, but in town (which is not far from the beach, though). Staff is very helpful (tour booking, laundry service, information, etc.), they did not speak English very well, but tried everything they can to make our stay as comfortable as possible (and that it was). No wifi, but internet access on local computers (30 ZAR/ h), there is plenty of free wifi in town at restaurants, cafés, etc. Beware of hippos after dark!

No safe off-street parking around (we left our car right across the street from the hostel, and it was ok - or we were lucky - as long as you do not leave anything inside), no safe walking after sunset in the area, the area is quite noisy at night (music from hostel and traffic on streets. We were happy to leave Durban asap. Free wifi, though, to mention something positive.

The beach is right across the street, we saw a couple of dolphins pass by during our breakfast on the lookout sofa. No wifi, the kitchen does not contain a lot of things (some cutlery, mugs, pots). Off-street parking on beach promenade with security guide - not too good a place to hang out after sunset, though (inside the hostel grounds and the pub next door it's no problem at all).

Matt is a wonderful host and a great cook - the dogs contribute to the good atmosphere. Plus, you get discounts for lots of interesting sights and tours nearby. Really nice hostel, go get some olives, fresh bread and honey at the olive shop across the road and/ or some delicious Belgian chocolate next door.

Situated in a quiet neighbourhood 10 min walk from Kaosarn Road. Coin operated laundry facilities (washer/ dryer), helpful staff, an on-site travel agent for day and other trips (pick-up included), cold beverages and free wifi. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others

Nice and clean place, helpful staff, in house bar and bbq. They charge for luggage storage, even though it's only for one night. Would stay there again.

Nice and clean hostel next to the night market. We had a comfortable double room with ensuite bathroom for a very good price, would definitely return.

If you don't mind squeaking mattresses and loud music, this is the place to be - otherwise ask for a double room, and you'll be far away from the music (and the internet as well, unfortunately). Best place to stay when coming from or going to the airport, taking the bus to or arriving from the Caribbean or Arenal Volcano, as it's walking distance. Would recommend the hostel!

Absolutely nice hostel pretty much on the beach - you can hear the waves at night. The host Calixto is lovely,, friendly, helpful and always up for a chat. We got a 4 bed room for the price of a double room, which was great. Breakfast is tasty (fruit and toast or pancakes), and Tortuguero was a highlight. We stayed for one night longer than planned. Recommendation: Book a canoe tour with Mauricio (Rainforest Life Tours), he's the best with his fast and furious-race canoe. Highly recommended.

Another hostel with squeaking mattresses in the dorm - which is fine, as long as you don't have drunk Latvians jumping onto their beds in the middle of the night *hmpf*. Did the Cerro Chato hike(-way through hell) and the jungle canopy tour, which is highly recommended. Theoretically, you see the volcano from the hostel - most of the time, you see the cloud covering the volcano... but you can enjoy that view from the lovely pool while having a drink! Could be worse... Would highly recommend.

Nice hostel with a large garden. Alonso picked us up from the airport and even stopped at a supermarket and an ATM on the way to the hostel, which was very helpful. Breakfast was tasty as well. You can hear the planes from the nearby San José airport, but we were so tired, we didn't even notice at night. Would recommend.

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Tone on Lex. The staff is helpful and friendly, there's free tea and coffee all day long, and breakfast is free as well - you just have to get up in the morning... Located perfectly for visits to Central Park or the museums or to take the metro downtown. I'll definitely stay there again on my next NYC visit and highly recommend this hostel. Oh, and they definitely speak Spanish - I spoke more Spanish than English. :-) - Regine from Heidelberg, Germany
