Hostel Estoril

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Very helpful staff I had lost my ATM card and they helped me to purchase a phone card to call the bank. The breakfast is good there are eggs. A tv you can put USB in to watch your own movies

Barra Guest Hostel

Salvador, Brazil

This hostel is great. Barra is a nice area . The atmosphere is great - the staff are super friendly, Olivia is really helpful. The owner is lovely and genuinely cares for her guests. They sometimes organise nights out. Alfonso makes great free caipirinhas every night. The breakfast is amazing- you must try Suzannas Spanish omlette .. It fills me for the rest of the day. Only one street from the beach. Reccomend

Big Fish Las Palmas Hostel

Gran Canaria, Spain

Its nice and clean and perfect location near the beach and transport. The bedding is really comfortable and warm. Gets a bit noisy in the front room on weekends as a small bar is across the road, so bring earplugs or join the party! Free tea and coffee and cooking oil/herbs included. Definitely recommend.


good location near local bars and market, 10min walk from beach, 5 min bus to central bus station, stayed for 2 weeks, felt like family, good place to meet people, pub crawl, and there is a cute dog, would return!

Casa d'Alagoa

Faro, Portugal

The staff were helpful it is a good location, there are no lockers, or fans in the room I was in. Also the room I was in was on the street front and the cars were very loud all night, take earplugs in case you get the front room. Other than that it was very nice and clean and light and airy. Good atmosphere.

Port Macquarie Backpackers

overall fine for cheap central short stay. free pool table, common room, cheap bar. remember to take ur swipe key for every person in your room, security wont let u in after hours with just one key between you. elevators smell. breakfast only bread and milk and ends 9.30.


great to meet people and great help from staff


the staff were very friendly and helpful however it smelt like sewerage and there were homeless people living outside so everytime u walk in or out u feel guilty

Emma, We are located in the very center of the Historic neighborhood "El Carmen" , if you checked a little bit before you came you will know that is the most important part of Valencia, about the homeless people outside, it´s one man that always seats there (at the entrance of La Lonja) he´s not living there (like you said), he likes to seat there only to listen to his radio in the afternoons (and I know this because I talked to him several times) it´s that one harmless man that made you give us such a low rating......mhhh, I think you should travel more !
