Cool dogs are always good to have in a hostel. Although they say newly remodelled, I think this only applies to the bathrooms - they're pretty nice. The rest of the place has an authentic 70s vibe to it. I've tried a few places in Bogotá - La Pinta is not a bad choice
Nice simple hostel
I think this place would like to be a party hostel, but something is missing. Live (loud) music on Friday/Saturday - you can't escape it. Breakfast is ordinary, but they have a great kitchen and a good but expensive supermarket around the corner. Staff are very enthusiastic, but not really much atmosphere. I'm going back to Bogotá this week and will be finding somewhere else to stay
Had the deluxe room on the top floor. Lots of space, including kitchenette, dining area, big hammock. Would have been better if you could actually cook in the kitchenette. No atmosphere. A little music over breakfast would have been nice
Calling yourself a boutique "design" hostel is a recipe for disappointment. Newly decorated, the place certainly looks better than most. Toilet paper holders OUTSIDE the toilets just pisses me off. As do showers where you can't hang your towel. The worst is the breakfast they charge you extra for, but don't tell you this until you checkout. You can't even make your own because they close the kitchen in the mornings! Combined with a location in the middle of nowhere (the view is nice), I'd avoid
A lovely oasis on the edge of Máncora. Nice bungalows set in beautiful gardens. Breakfast, showers, wifi are all good. The pool is a bonus
Apparently this is a party hostel? I spent an hour at reception waiting to be checked in - this is normal because the staff are slow, they're computers are slower and they spend most of their time dealing with drunk gringos moaning the wifi doesn't work (it never works). You will also meet the drunk gringos - one guy told me about his trip to Queenstown where he and his mate had a joint. It was a good joint. I was fascinated. If you're as interesting as this guy, you should stay at Loki.
A great hostel one block from Parque Kennedy in Miraflores. Good common areas, nice rooms, loads of Americans
Nice hostel, nothing exceptional. Free pisco sours one evening. I've stayed in three hostels in Cusco, none were great, but this was the best.
Apart from the seventies decor and bathrooms that could do with an update, this place is great. Common areas are great with lots of hammocks outside, pool table and the biggest tele in South America. Seriously, it's HUGE!!! Great base to enjoy Arequipa
The place seems to have really bad reviews and I don't know why. One review says it's closed which isn't true. On the downside, they had no record of my reservation - not a problem and not unusual in Bolivia. They also have no internet and are 20 minutes walk from the centre - perfect to get away and the walk along the lakefront is very nice. The room is one of the nicest I've had in South America and breakfast is pretty good too. Check out tripadvisor or hostelbookers for more balanced reviews
Good location, good wifi, good showers, zero atmosphere
Wifi didn't work, otherwise a very average place to stay. Functional.
This is a beautiful hostel. The dorm is clean and very spacious. Nice garden to hang out in (with the cutest puppy in the world!!!). Breakfasts are good, but the kitchen isn't the best. Decent wifi and funky art on the walls. A bit expensive for Bolivia, but great if you can afford it.
They had no record of my reservation when I showed up and the dorm was full... Same problem for a couple of others that showed up at the same time - put us all in a private room, so it was OK, but then had to move to the dorm the next night. They need more showers for the guests. Breakfast is basic but the bread is very tasty. Nice common areas. This place has a lot of potential and I hesitate to say it is probably too cheap - they should put the price up and invest in additional bathrooms!
I've stayed here before (in October) but only 1 night impressions were much better that time. The staff seemed nice but disinterested. Breakfast was basic, but OK - when they could be bothered putting anything out. Kitchen is rubbish. Location is good, just a block from the main plaza. They are supposed to have a party vibe, maybe I wasn't 'feeling' it...
Central location between the bus terminal, beach and town centre. Great kitchen, fantistic showers and hammocks too! It is a little quiet, but that´s Encarnicion for you...
I only stayed here for the pool. Great pool!
Good place to take a break from things. A few km from the towns of La Paloma and La Padrera, this is a little out of the way, but that means you get a great beach almost to yourself. Or you can just relax and watch the waves from the roof terrace. German and Camila are the sweetest couple that run the place and will take of anything you need
Clean and modern. Great to have AC in the rooms during summer, although it does leak and leave water over the floor. Not as sociable as many other hostels
Would be better with AC and a few more showers. Old building with lots of character. Bar and roof terrace great to socialise
The hostel is miles from town. If you're traveling to Ushuaia, book ahed as good options are limited
I only stayed here because I booked last minute and everything else was full. That said, it is nice enough and Sylvia is very helpful
Good place to chill before after your trekking
Good place to chill before/after trekking Torres
The showers belong in a prison and the guards, I mean the staff, are all miserable. Otherwise, this place is fine but you can probably find better.
The staff are really friendly and full of enthusiasm - very welcoming. It is a little far from the centre of town, but you should be used to walking now, right? Right?
Wow - this place is a gem! Met several people that raved about this place before I arrived and was ready to be disappointed, but wasn't. It is a little far out from the town, but so what. Huge grounds with hammocks and places to hang out. River running through the back of the property with a small beach to swim (not too cold in January). Cosy bar where you can also get dinner that ranges from OK to excellent. Lots of games for when it rains. Staff are great. Book ahead and don't miss out!
Not too far from the bus terminal, big common area with a bar, pool table and garden, but not too much else to recommend. The 'asado' was a choripan - meh. About 2km from the centre of town and anything interesting. Wifi was painfully slow. Beds and showers below par. My room at the front was a little noisy. There are much better hostels in Bariloche, but book ahead in peak season!!!
Spacious rooms, friendly staff. I've tried a few hostels in Puerto Varas and this is the one I recommend to others...
Nice place with great views and it is good to stay in a Palafito, but not sure it's worth paying 30% more than other hostels. Showers alternate between scalding and freezing. Walls are very thin, so there is almost no privacy. The recycling system just confused me until I realised that nobody bothered to separate their rubbish. Would recommend if they weren't so expensive
Big, bright, comfy house with loads of space and great views from the terrace.
Every hostel should have its own duck! Nice place and highly commended for its efforts to be sustainable. They need to fix the front door rather than complaining when it slams itself shut behing guests. Would go back, except there isn't much to do in Valdivia itself...
Great location by the lake and just off the main road. Friendly dog. Nice.
Lovely hostel that feels more like a home. Staff and owners are very sweet. Stayed for New Years when the price is jacked up 3-400%, so can't give good marks on value for money, but every hostel in valpo does that. Have recommended and would happily return
Located in the middle if the bars and restaurants of Bellavista - the only downside was noise from the streets. Great common areas with a BBQ on the roof terrace and table football in the lounge. Wifi only works in the common areas, but that's not the end of the world. Is it???
Central location, right across the road from the metro. Good common area with a bar and pool table, although most people hanging out there were engrossed with their phones and laptops.
Nice big garden and big kitchen. Maybe a smaller garden would be a little more sociable? Have to mark them down on security because I had some stuff stolen from my locker in my room - could have happened anywhere, I guess, but many other hostels have security cameras...
This place is fine. Big place, not much atmosphere, but nothing to complain about.
One of the worst hostels I've used! Rooms are dark and very stuffy. Had to sleep with the door open - ok if you don't care about security. There are no lockers Staff were ok until they told me the 75 pesos per night I paid on arrival was wrong and I had to pay 150 because I booked through hostelworld! The sign at reception said 75 and others in my dorm paid 75... I left the next day even though I paid for 3 nights and they refused a refund. Everyone else left at the same time... Stay away!
Reception area is a little dark. The room was facing the street so quite noisy. Needs a few more showers. Breakfast was better than most and the staff were quite helpful. Overall, this place was OK, but I've stayed in a other hostels in BsAs that were better...
Nice hostel, friendly and helpful staff/owners, good mix of Brazilians and gringos.
