Renata (the owner) is super nice (and not hard to look at ;-) ). So is Anahi. Carlos went above and beyond with his advice/service. Hmmm... Carlos and Renata might want to go on a date... Only downside was, there were not a lot of guests during my stay.
Good Hostel with big rooms. Nice facilities and activities for every day in the week. city center can be reached in a 10 min walk. good happy hour. Bar area is being cleared at 12. then people can only drink in the front or go out. I do not give a good rating for security, as everybody can go into every room.Big lockers are provided though. Salsa instructor (he is good) should go a slower pace. He covers a lot for 15 min. too fast for people without salsa background.
Daisy, the owner oft the hostel looks super hot. So the rest of the girls behind the counter. very nice pool table and a big common room. A nice bar with Marcela. A supermarket is 100 m from the hostel. poblado Station is about a 15 min walk. Really enjoyed my stay here.
They have a nice bar and helpful stuff. Location not directly in the center, however everything can be reached easily. Overall very solid.
Helpful stuff, good location within Sofia. The room got too cold, as the central heating unit just turns on at 10 and it can take a bit until it is getting warm. Free breakfast and dinner. If you are on a budget, this is a really nice feature.
Just stayed for one night. Hostel is a little alternative. It is the house of the hostel owners. If you are ok with this, you will have a good time. Free breakfast with organic food included.
Petia (girl behind the reception) is super hot!
Alberto (one of his many names is a great tourguide)! Hostel had a great atmosphere. 5 min walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.
The Way Hostel is all about the location. In the centre of everything. The staff is great, good common room and kitchen. The hostel has a great atmosphere. Daily pub-crawls (same 4 bars in different sequence) and events are organized. The kitchen is the gathering point every night. They do not have a breakfast. However there are two supermarkets within 2 min walk. Biggest downside is probably that the hostel is really loud. Rooms on 1st floor are between street and kitchen. So no sleep ;-) ...
Hostel with a great location. Good breakfast. Safes on the ground floor are too small to fit e.g. an Ipad, so give it to the staff. Didn't have too much interaction with the staff. Great tours. Good kitchen. The common area is a little bit lacking. However there are 1000 bars around. If you go to ra pub-crawl, you can use the same wristband the next evening, so don't thow it away. What is a little bit weird is that the last person in the room has to return the key to the reception...
A few nice bars in walkable distance. Overall not great, but ok.
Really nice hostel! Every room has a locker (per bed) and a (small) fridge. Laundry service available. Nice bar. Friendly staff who give great advice on what to do and who are joining going out (if they don't work) and show you around. Finally Miriam must be the prettiest girl who ever worked in a hostel!
Mama's Home is a very good hostel. Especially the breakfast is awesome. Met a lot of great people there. They usually played good music. I give a very good rating of 80, as there was not a single "AHA" moment I had there.
Had a 4 week long vacation in Guatemala/Mexico and stayed in total in 12 diff. towns/hostels. There was not a single failure, however the YAK was the best overall during this trip. Reasons: 1) 24h bar. 2) Really great (young) international staff who really like their jobs. I showed up short term and they assembled a bed for me. Girls behind the counter look very decent. 3) The location is 2 blocks from the beach and 1 block from the major party area. Super markets and restaurants are close by.
Overall a very nice hostel in the heart of the town. Can definitely imagine staying there again.
Overall a very good hostel. It was a little big quiet compared of the size of the hostel.
Very nicely located opposite of a huge market in the city centre of antigua. Terrace with bar and grill (great burgers). Great value for the money and the highlight is the staff (super helpful). Paola is hot!
La Coperacha is a very good hostel. Dont really understand why there werent more people there when I visited.
NovoHostal was my first stop in Guatemala. Supe nice lady (daughter of the owner?) took about an hour to explain me all the nice spots in Guatemala. Really super friendly. Very close to the airport. Opposite of a military base., so you might potentially be woken up very early. Overall almost like a hotel with nice owners.
Shauna is awesome! Shawn is cool.
Big rooms with bathroom. Very clean. Good location near subway station. Friendly staff. Breakfast buffet in restaurant next to the hostel. Pretty big, so not as "cozy" as smaller hostels. Wifi not on the room (lobby or bar). I definitely recommend to stay at this hostel.
Rafael and Luiz really tried everything to make our stay as nice as possible. Beside from the staff, the biggest pluses are that from Badal station you walk less than 5 min to the Hostel. Further there is 50m next to the hostel a Supermarket in case you want to cook (or want to buy something to drink :-) ). I can certainly recommend to stay in this hostel. Btw... Barcelona is really simply awesome!
