HI AmazĂ´nia

Belem, Brazil

My impression of HI hostels continue to get worse. Not even to have a map. A breakfast that was only good for us tourists to bond over making fun of it, and at a fairly expensive nightly rate. Also, an absurd extra charge for SAME DAY luggage storage. And make sure you dont lie down on the couch, even if no one else is around, thats only for sitting

Good social hotel. With internet, pool table, bar, tvs and outdoor area, you dont even need to leave the hostel to have a good time in Lima.

I havestayed at hostels. This place had the best "vibe" Ive ever enjoyed at a hostel. There is even a seperate after 11:30 area to chill in, so people can party all night wihtout disturbing those who wanted to sleep.

The staff is the most knowledgeable and informative staff you will run across, they provide city maps and review all the points of interest with you when you check in. They also have filtered water, which saved me a lot of money on bottled water


Rio Soul Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
80%

I found the staff extrememly helpful with advice, directions and helping out to find services. The location was walking distance to Sugar Loaf Mountain, and a cheap cab ride or easy bus and metro access to the main beaches and other attractions The breakfast was nice The rooms were divided into two sections of the hostel, so as many people that stayed there I thought it lacked a good social scene. Despite a large common area with tv, music, tables and kitchen use Internet is for a charge


Hostel Galeria 13

Salvador, Brazil

Good = Great social aspect. common room & tables outside, large breakfast selection, and free drinks for an hour in the evenings. Very near the happening area of Pelhourinho, and walking distance to the busses Bad = Guests were told they werent allowed to use the pool while I was there, then why have a pool?

Owner Comment (Hide)
Even though not many of us are luckiy enough to have a pool at home i would imagine we can appreciate they need cleaning.This requires a product that makes the particles fall to the bottom ,if the pool is open 24hours a day that is impossible.We normally close the pool from 0100 till 0900 in the morning i think that is reasonable and most people comprehend that. so i do have to wonder what this guest was expecting during the one day stay .Pumps do blow up but not whilst this guest was here so very strange comment.Why not ask why the pool was closed instead of writing a review as if we close it willy nilly.

You couldnt wake up to a more beautiful morning, sit out, eat your free breakfast, and look at gorgeous scenery in all directions. The showers had hot water, there was internet, tv room and movies, and hammocks. Also a very nice kitchen. It is a short, and safe walk to town, a longer walk to the plantations, but a jeep comes by everyhour at a reasonable taxi rate. TV in bedroom used plug that would not work in outlets, no converter available. Shouldnt be advertised as feature of my room

Al Sharq Hotel

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
60%

Good - price, as cheap as you can find. Even though its 15km outside Dubai, its only a 20 minute walk to bus stop and only a $7AED cost to Dubai or $25AED to Abu Dhabi. The guy who worked the morning was very nice and helpful Bad - it took complaints after the first AND third shower before I stopped getting frezzing showers. The night clerk gave me half a phone message, and the part he left out cost me 2.5 hours of time and money. Airport transfer returning to the airport, in a smelly car


Kuldeep Friends Hostel

New Delhi, India

Good - location was easy to find with directions from New Delhi train station. Hot water during every shower (a rarity in INdia). Lowest price in Delhi Bad - I didnt feel welcomed when I came in, and felt I was being asked many questions that were not their business

good - plenty of available internets, close to Khoa San Road, reasonable priced bad - tour prices overpriced this was actually a repeat stay at this hostel, so it was good enough to bring me back


NapPark Hostel at Khao San

Bangkok, Thailand
77%

good - location. good common area, with dvds available to watch. 5 computers with internet available for usage. allow early and late check ins to store luggage and hang out bad - prices of tours are overpriced and not clear about real costs. when other fees are expected to be paid on the tours, that is not explained at time of purchase. when i bought a bus ticket on the street because it was 200B cheaper, they told me it was an unsafer bus where people will go through my things- untrue


Las Vegas Hostel

Las Vegas, USA
74%

First of all bus from airport is $2, not $1.75 as hostelworld says (I had exact change). Hostel is about 8 blocks from the Freemont Experience, and buses are very accessible. The lockers in the room were big. Provides 24 security, kitchen, pancakes for breakfast, pool table (although a bad surface), internet (for a fee), and there is a pool. I used there shuttle service for a ride to the airport. The shuttle service didnt pick me up, and the taxi cost me over $30, as opposed to the 9.


Hostel Toruma

San Jose, Costa Rica

The location is tough. I went walking around at night, and could not find my way back because there are no street signs. But I guess that would be the case for anywhere. Be careful. I was told walking at night would be unsafe, but I never felt I was in danger. The man at the desk was very friendly and helpful.

location is near metro to get anywhere. the guy who works the night is awesome. the price is great for what you get. the negatives were that the rooms were hot and muggy, there was a blanket but no sheet. and the showers were small, and there was little chance of not soaking the whole bathroom floor


Sandy Hostel

location was the bigget plus, walking distance from train station, walking distance to colliseum. it was on the top floor so a lot of stairs to get there. the biggest negative was that the communal showers had very little water pressure
