a nice chill hostel for 1 night. i liked the free breakfast in the bar which is a nice room with a patio overlooking cusco rooftops. i liked the hammocks in the lobby. the wifi doesn't work in the rooms but only the common areas. they don't give out keys so you have to go to the front desk to get into your room everytime but i had no issues with that system and only stayed one night. the fokes at the front desk also helped me get a cab to the airport for only 15 soles.

i don't know why i decided to spend 3 nights here. there really isn't anything to do in aguas calientes and it's a big overpriced tourist trap. i would do 2 nights here max. the hostel was decent but nothing fancy. i had a private room that was really small. the wifi doesn't work in the rooms but the staff were really kind and helpful. they always helped me when i had questions and also helped me print my machu picchu ticket.

it's a huge hostel with so many people and staff. it felt impersonal but the rooms were clean and nice. the free breakfast was nice as well and the location is excellent. the wifi doesn't work in the rooms. there's no bathroom in the rooms so you have to walk to the shared bathrooms but that wasn't an issue for me.

this hostel was nice. nothing fancy and the staff were nice. the wifi works in the rooms which is nice. i liked the outdoor common area. the only thing i didn't like was the shower where barely any water came out and didn't feel cleansing or refreshing.

I loved this hostel! Probably one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. I wish they had a 24 hour reception and better signage to find the location but it's such a nice, warm and welcoming place. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They have their own map of Tainan to help visitors get around and find local food and landmarks. I appreciated the special and personal touches they added. The property was clean and it felt good to be there. Great place and I also loved Tainan!

This was probably the worst Hostel International I've ever stayed at. It wasn't horrible- it just wasn't as new or clean as any other of their hostels in the US. My stays at the HI hostel in Chicago and San Francisco were much better. There's just something missing from this location. There are common areas but it feels totally devoid of any ambiance or personality. It also felt like the type of place no matter how much you cleaned it wouldn't ever feel clean. Probably needs a redesign.

I've stayed at this hostel before. The location is definitely my favorite part of it. It's comfortable and the staff were able to accommodate me though my travel plans changed last minute on a very busy weekend. I appreciate that a lot and it made my trip, stay and experience enjoyable.

I had a pleasant stay on the island. The woman who runs the hostel is nice and respectful but she isn`t always around the property. Even during the posted office hour times there may or may not be someone there to help you. It's true- no one really cleans but I`ve been in hostels that are more disgusting. The guests are awesome and create a chill laid back atomsphere to enjoy. The hostel doesn`t really organize any socials or outings so your experience is what you make it.

Glad you enjoyed your time here. Yes, office times are different in winter as it's colder and flight schedules are different. Kitchen was cleaned at night and bathrooms in the morning, but when the hostel is full and no one cleans up after themselves, we get it. We did try to organise events,but everyone was too worried about spending money, so we just put up on our daily board the events happening around the island. Hopefully if you ever stay with us again, we'll have a more active crowd.

Great location. The staff are okay. Not the friendliest or most enthusiastic people ever but that's fine. The only thing I really disliked was that the key I received to get into my room did not work. I had to carry all my luggage up and down the stairs 2 or 3 times to keep going down to fix my key so I could get into the room. The staff gave me attitude which I did not appreciate. Don't they understand the whole reason fokes pay for the hostel is to have access to the room?

i had a great stay at this hostel! the amenities are okay but you get what you pay for. the vibe and atmosphere is what makes this hostel so great! it is obvious that the staff works hard to create a fun party scene for everyone to experience south beach. i love all the pub crawls and club outings with the hostel crew. they also provide meals included in your stay which helps out a lot when you are traveling on a budget. highly recommended!

I often stay here when I come visit South Beach. It's good value for what you get but no frills. I went on one of their pub crawls//club outings for the first time on this visit and I wasn't too impressed. I would recommend staying elsewhere if you want more of a fun and party atmosphere and opportunities to meet and connect with people.

Thank you for your review. Most of our guests enjoy having VIP entrance to some of the best clubs in South Beach. Perhaps the club was having an off night? Unfortunately we have no control over that. We try to create a fun party atmosphere in our lobby with our full bar and 4 large screen TVs and projector. We are always open to suggestions to make our hostel more fun though! Thank you for being our guest!

HIGHLY recommended! my stay at island time made my trip to PR very special. there is an amazing staff of thoughtful, fun and kind people who work hard to ensure visitors not only have a pleasant stay at the hostel but the whole island. the amenities (wifi!) are great and the staff was accommodating to any questions or concerns i had. i preferred the santurce location over the other hostels in old san juan. if you consider yourself to be a traveler and not a tourist, this is the place for you!

this is very much a hostel if you are a tourist wanting to do tourist things, link up with people to do tourist things and walk around old san juan. if you want to see some real puerto rican culture and life or even go to the beach the location is a bit out of the way. i would recommend perhaps looking for something in the conado or santurce area if you are looking for the latter. the hostel itself is bare bones: the staff just check you in and out and there`s no interaction otherwise.

Old San Juan is a great city that is walkable and its among the favorite places for locals to go out for night time because its safety; Trust me I am a local. Condado Is only resorts and Santurce; Miramar is a more reality of social problems of Puerto Rico. Which you dont necessary have to live in it to experience. There is no shame in being a tourist. OSJ has history - Its safe w/ many family business. Dont discredit us because you rather be in the rough part of town for the same price.

this was the first hostel i stayed at when i first arrived to taipei. it`s in a good location pretty close and central to quite a few things. the staff is friendly and love how they offer free breakfast. it is basic but it is still something welcoming and kind. this hostel is very clean and there's a lot of natural light. there is no elevator just stairs for those with big luggages. i felt safe and overall good experience!
