Ostinatto Hostel, Buenos Aires, Argentina
9.1
9th Mar 2016

This is basically an Art Deco structure in what is the mainly late 19th/early 20th quarter of San Telmo. The staff are unfailingly helpful. They do try to keep the noise down by shutting off the lift(elevator) at night but it would be nice to have less noise drifting up from the ground floor. Otherwise I had all the comforts that one could require from Room 50, almost a mini-suite at the top of the building.

Thank you so much for your kind review! we're glad that you find our hostel suitable for your needs. Hope to see you again! Ostinatto Staff

Happy House Hostel, Santiago, Chile
8.9
5th Mar 2016

A remarkable late 19th/early 20th century former mansion in the hugely atmospheric Barrio Brasil. I was willing to forgive them for the bilious orange paint because of the grandly high ceiling in room 12. The staff are excellent. Most of the building is sealed off from the noise of the bar but unfortunately not from the footsteps upstairs or the dustmen (garbage men) at midnight outside. Otherwise a very pleasant stay and I would gladly come again.

Hostal Jacaranda & Home, Valparaiso, Chile
8.6
2nd Mar 2016

The main building has the typical Valparaiso architecture. For some reason the management asked me to stay in the Home part of the Hostel & Home. It was comfortable and pleasant but I still had a hankering for the shabby chic of the main building.

Backpacker`s Hostel Iquique, Iquique, Chile

21st Feb 2016

A bit noisy and my room had a low ceiling and no fan, which would have been useful in the heat of February. Don't try to use the kitchen in peak hours or you will trip over a lot of people. The desk staff are average at best but the bar staff are good and if asked, will play almost any music you want (they even found some John Lee Hooker for me!)

A friendly hostel in my favourite district of Buenos Aires. Don't miss the asado on Tuesdays. They play a good choice of music in the common area---Erykah Badu among others! The staff are quite good at ensuring that noise in the patio should finish at midnight.

A cut---well, more like 2 or 3 cuts---above the average backpacker hostel, well managed and very comfortable. The manager dealt very well with my complaint about street noise and I realise this is just an occupational hazard in a place that likes to party. One day they may invest in new TVs for the rooms but otherwise a pleasant stay.

Having stayed last year at the Hospedaje Casco Viejo in a windowless room, I asked them for a room with a window this time. I didn't hold my breath but on my arrival, they directed me to the Panamericana to a room with a brilliant view of Plaza Herrera. So thanks for that---the Panamericana is a no-nonsense hostel with clean, very spacious rooms and a nice roof terrace, excellent value for money in this atmospheric part of Panama City.

Having stayed here a month before, I was glad to return. The location is convenient for the Red Fort although this crowded part of Old Delhi could easily put people off. The hotel is clean snd comfortable with helpful, efficient staff. The only drawback is that the marble passages make internal noises carry but on the plus side, there is no street noise.

The building is shabby and could badly do with some TLC but it's clean enough. The private rooms are spacious but the shared areas get crowded. Bad news: people arriving off night buses from 3 a.m. onwards making no attempt to be quiet. Good news: the hostel's trump card is its location in the heart of the atmospheric Casco Viejo, and with so little choice of venues in this neighbourhood it's worth thinking about staying here.

OK without being exceptional and the staff are friendly. It helps if you like reggae. because they play it a lot. Thursday is a good day to be there because they do a barbecue in the evening. On other nights, try one of the local eateries, which are much cheaper than those downtown and you´ll probably be the only gringo there. Also, don´t forget the mosquito repellent.

A wonderful traditional house about 100 years old, superbly restored. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and if you don't mind spending a bit more than at the average hostel, this place should not be missed. If arriving by taxi, ask the driver to phone the guest house because it's a bit hard to find. Puntarenas is a fascinating, unpretentious town with a lively atmosphere and well worth a stay as a change from the usual beach resorts.

I have stayed at two other hostels in Buenos Aires, but the Sandanzas combines with friendliness of one with the comfort of the other. Lying in a quiet part of San Telmo, it is convenient for my favourite area of the city as well as near the commercial centre. The layout, with a patio and a balcony, makes it a good place to meet other travellers.

Very pleasant owners (they are Argentine, so Spanish is fine if you don´t speak Portuguese). A nice relaxing place. N.B. if arriving from Fortaleza with Redençao bus company, check on pick-up locations in Fortaleza. After I got on at the rodviaria, the bus went round the houses and didn´t finally get out of the city for over an hour (they didn´t bother to say at the ticket office that I could have got on at Mereiles where I was staying). Otherwise Jeri is fine even for non-windsurfers.

The couple who run this pousada are very frindly Argentinians, so if you don�t speak Portuguese, Spanish will do. It has a beautiful garden with plentiful bird life, and the rooms are immaculate (pick your own hammock). The only thing to beware of is the departure point of the local buses, which can be errratic. But as for the pousada itself, it was the best out of 10 in which I have stayed on this Brazilian trip, and I wish the owners every success with it.
