Venice Beach Hostel

Los Angeles, USA
74%

Hostel is in a great location and is kept clean with good cooking facilities. At the time of booking it was advertised that evening meals were offered for $1 a night however when we arrived we were told that they weren't offering these meals without an apology! There was also a HUGE tax added to the price which wasn't made clear when booking of about 25%! Definitely not worth the money unfortunately.

The Venice Beach Hostel

Los Angeles, USA
80%

Staff were all really friendly and helpful and kitchen had great facilities with really good breakfast. Bathrooms were clean with good showers and we didn't have any issues in waiting for them but I can see how that could be a problem. There were quite a few mattresses on the floor where people had to sleep on which I wouldn't be happy about!! Location isn't bad but the address on hostel world is wrong which meant we spent an hour walking around trying to find it! Not signposted at all...

Can't really expect much more from a $5 a night hostel! Very basic which is no problem but the whole place was pretty filthy, especially the bathrooms! Wifi was ok and the owner was actually nice and helpful but wouldn't stay here again!

Really fun hostel!! Great staff with a great bar and outside chill area in a really good location. Rooms and bathrooms were all generally clean with good showers. Outdoor gate which requires a key makes the rooms really safe and huge lockers for every person!

Mancora, Peru

Overall good hostel with really nice pool in good location. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food served there was good value for money. Only downside was that the rooms were so hot at night without any aircon and a couple of times we lost water supply to our bathroom.

Rooms were kept clean and staff were helpful. Bathroom was sometimes a bit dirty due to the number of people using it. Really good breakfast and a bar which has a gorgeous view of the whole city. Hostel is located 5 minutes from the main square where you can find everything you need. If you are looking for a party hostel then this isn't the place but you can definitely get a good nights sleep!

Pirwa Hostel La Paz

La Paz, Bolivia

Clean and friendly hostel with really helpful staff - we had problems getting out of the city but they helped us out with bus tickets and made sure there was room for us for or more night. Comfy beds and secure lockers in reception for valuables. Basic breakfast but really good bar area with ping pong table and great BBQ on one evening. Location is only a 10 minute walk from the markets/bars/restuarants and just around the corner from the bus station.

Hostal Talar

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
89%

Best thing about this hostel was the staff - Alejandro in particular was really helpful throughout our stay giving advice on what to do in San Pedro and also on our salt flats trip (even if we didn't go with their conpany!). Great cooking facilities and common area with wifi and a ping pong table. Hostel was kept clean, tidy and secure and although it was a bit further out of town you are only looking at a 10 minute walk maximum.

La Posada de Don Simon

Salta, Argentina
89%

We could only stay in this property for one night due to availability but the owner sorted another room out for us just around the corner which was really helpful. We tried to get breakfast 10 minutes before it finished but there was no food left, would be worth not leaving it so late! Hostel had a BBQ that they let us use which was a really great night and rooms/bathrooms were kept clean.

Modern and clean hostel with a really great atmosphere. Bar downstairs is always busy but not loud in the bedrooms either. Staff were really helpful and organised nights are on pretty much every night. Good breakfast too, only downfall is that the cooking facilities are very basic!

Hostel was set in a really good location right on the beach with a great beach bar that was always busy in the evenings. Lots of options for breakfast and the cooking facilities were better than most places we have stayed! Clean rooms/bathrooms which had lockers and keys for each room. Most importantly, really helpful as friendly staff to help us plan our stay, especially Larissa. Altogether great hostel!

HI Holandes

Ilha Grande, Brazil

All rooms were very clean with comfy beds and with everything you may need. Great breakfast with loads to choose from, with limited cooking facilities but sufficient for making basic dinners. Location is a little out of the centre but only 10 minutes walk max and the hostel is set in really nice and quiet surroundings. Wifi not great but worked on and off - no worse than anywhere else is South America! Staff really helpful too.
