Hostel Dos Monos South, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

26th Jul 2017

I love this hostel! The staff are fantastic and the vibe is really nice. The hostel booked out, so they happily organised a bed for my friend and I at the North hostel and even paid for us to get a cab down there. I moved here from Selina because I found it was hard being a solo traveller there, and it definitely was the right decision.

Selina Santa Teresa, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

25th Jul 2017

Selina is an amazing hostel, with great staff and hard to beat prices. Unfortunately it seems like this attracts a different crowd of travellers than what you would usually expect at a hostel. I found it really hard to be a solo traveller there as most people were sticking to themselves, so I ended up moving. The yoga classes are fantastic - Sabrina is a beautiful teacher.

Fauna Luxury Hostel, San Jose, Costa Rica

24th Jul 2017

Fauna is more of a hotel than a hostel, there's pros and cons depending on what you're looking for. If you're hoping to meet people or check out the city, then this is not the place for you. However if you're just in transit and looking for a place to crash before your next stop, then fauna is great. The staff are very sweet and helpful, and the free yoga class is absolutely amazing. The dorms are very clean and comfortable.

Bunkyard Hostels, Colombo, Sri Lanka
10.0
11th Jan 2017

I had an absolutely fantastic time staying at bunkyard! It's actually the nicest hostel I've ever stayed at - very cool, with very comfy beds. The staff are so friendly and helpful, I cannot thank them enough for all the information they gave me. Only problem is the area has a lot of one way streets and tuk tuk drivers often say they know where the location is.. but they don't. I got lost quite a few times.

The staff that run this hostel are so lovely and made me feel welcome. It's really only a small guesthouse, so don't expect a typical established hostel. Great quiet location, and delicious breakfast provided every morning

Absolutely stunning hostel, amazing reception staff and great location. Only downfall is there very inefficient system of having to pay at reception and then get a receipt to give to the bar or restaurant. Such a waste of paper and bad for the environment! One of the bar staff spent way too much time talking to people and not enough time serving... It took me 20 mins to get my drink after I ordered it because he kept chatting away to other people at the bar.

Nice hostel, great spot and great facilities, however the hostel bar means that heaps of people go there to party and it kind of ruins the vibe of the hostel

Jam Hostel Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

23rd Jul 2014

Lovely hostel in great area - away from all the tourist traps, but only a short metro ride or walk away from everything. Day staff were amazing but the night staff were a bit rude, I was in a 6 bed dorm talking with everyone in my room at 1am and we were told to be quiet or we would be kicked out. I understand you need to keep the noise down, but come on its still a hostel! Perfect for anyone who wants to escape the party hostel atmosphere but still travel on a budget.

We are very glad that you had a good time at jam hostel. We are sorry for the inconvenience you experienced that night, but sometimes it is a little hard to find an exact balance between the volume of conversations and the guests’ rest. Hope to see you soon again!!

Location, common area and breakfast were all excellent. However, I found the staff to be quite rude at times and the dorms could definitely use an update considering how much they charge. The sheets were stained and ripped beyond what is acceptable in a hostel. I'm not usually too fussed by this but for the price I paid it was pretty poor form.

Decent hostel run by lovely staff, who made the stay worthwhile. Location is only average due how long it can take on the bus to copa, lapa etc. But in terms of security I never felt unsafe. The neighbourhood is really interesting and has a lot to offer, there is even a subway near by! The breakfast at the hostel is excellent, the only bad thing about the hostel is the occasional bad smells.. but if you're a backpacker you should be used to that by now ;)

Not a bad place if you're only staying a couple of nights. The reception staff are really helpful but the cleaning lady is really grumpy! Definately worth the little money you pay!
