Hostel Kokopelli

Lima, Peru

Anyone can enter the hostel´s bar at night, showing ID, which is not safe because dorms are not locked. The reception staff is friendly while the bar staff can be random because they are travellers. Not possible to chill there because there is no living area, just the open aired bar which is freezing cold. 2 days in a row with no hot shower and dodgy wifi, this is not serious in a city like Lima in winter. "Smoking" is allowed in the bar wich is a major breakdown for me.

This hostel claims to be a party hostel with a bar closing at 1am... well. The staff is mostly travelers and some don't care. The wifi was not working at all and the shower pressure was ridiculous. Besides, the hostel location is very good, 2 min from the beach and has a nice swimming pool.

Hi and thanks for the feedback. Our wifi actually works great throughout the whole house including the terrace but the problem was with your computer configuration, as you had connected to a network with the same name your computer in the past it was not configured correctly to connect with it which can be fixed easily! Sorry if the hot water was random for you, we try to replace the gas before it runs out and we also have a back-up electric shower. Regards, Matt

This is not a party hostel but a chilled and quiet small hostel, so you know what you are looking for. It is located 5 minutes from the subway Floresta, which is convenient to visit the city; and 3 blocks from the supermarket. The kitchen is truly workable, the showers had hot water, the wifi is working and the included breakfast is good and served by the owner every morning.

This hostel is very good to chill. Nice swimming pool, hammocks around and friendly staff. Location is ok even if not in the center, buses for Tayrona or the center pass nearby. The kitchen could be better, fire is very low. It is little pricy in high season but so as all the hostels in Santa Marta. I will definitely come back.

This hostel is very good for the price. Dorms are spacious, confortables and cleans. Breakast is good. The kitchen is fully workable and the staff is helpful and friendly. It is not a party hostel but more a quiet hostel with long term students or workers living in it which can be or not a good point depending on what you are looking for.

3Dogs Hostel

The good points are the location and the people living in it which gives a nice atmosphere to the place. The staff is awful , mostly people working for free bed and not caring about their job or helping travelers. Their reservation system is terrible, they asked me twice to pay more than expected on hostelworld and I had to prove it showing the email confirmation : unprofessionalism. Very few light on the 10 beds dorm and lack of tools for the kitchen. Breakfast is average.

Hi There Globetrotter, Thanks for taking the time to review us. We're sorry you didnt have a positive experience with our staff, even awful, we do take time and effort in training our staff. We do care for our clients and will make even more sure to show it. We started with a new reservation system in the weekend you arrived -5 of august 2012. All was new for management and staff. Now 3 weeks later it works even better than the old one. We apologize for not making clear that it was a new system. Safe travels.

This is a family and friend run hostel just opponned 6 months ago, it was an old industrial bakery before. It's very well located in la ciudad vieja, with all the main places on walkable distance and with a supermarked on the same street. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the kitchen is fully workable and the chilling area very good. It's a good value for Montevideo even if it's not perfect; shower pressure is quite weak and they should change the lockers on the biggest dorm downstairs.

Very good hostel with a lovely rooftop where the barbecue can be used freely everyday. The staff is really nice. The bathrooms are not the best part and need some improvement though. If you have a good crew to have a asado and chill and the rooftop at night, this is a winner.

You can't beat this hostel for the price ! It's a small hostel, with a lot of character, situated in a spotless street near all the cheap pubs and the mains areas. The living/dinning "area" is small, and that's the point, it's impossible not socialize with people, big plus imo. They are not strict with the rules and that makes a big difference too, especially in such a living city like Valpo. No cleanliness issue for me, good breakfast and friendly staff. The kitchen is a bit small but workable.

How such a hostel can exist ? The price is super high for this hostel, you have way better for cheaper in the center of Valparaiso. They lie about most of the services they provide, i.e no breakfast included ! It's situated just at the border of the big highway of the city, far away from everything, so noisy as hell and very dirty. The rooms are a joke, bad insulation to cold and very dangerous home made wooden staircase. Owner charged me full price, didn't take into account the 10% paid online.

Very quiet and chilled hostel. Decoration is awesome, even in the bathroom. Very good and well equiped kitchen. Good breakfast. The location is not ideal, but you have the subway and a supermarket nearby. The staff is very friendly and helpful (the girls working in this hostel should smile a little bit more). The bathroom setup is curious and original, you can´t take your shower and change you in a total intimacy. Nice open-air patio area to chill and eat in summer.

Don't get the high rating, it's just a honest hostel for the price. The setup of the hostel is not good, there is not really a living room to socialize with people, you are mostly going to socialize in the kitchen when people are making their food. The breakfast is taken till 10h30 and you are literally kicked out of the kitchen at this hour by the cleaning lady !! And she will make sure you wash your dishes properly, making comments if necessary; what a stress !

Hi Serge, As it says at the door of the kitchen, breakfast is until 10 am. The cleaning lady has to make sure everything is clean for the lunch time, that's why at 10:30 she asked you to leave the kitchen for a while. If you have the possibility to return to Santiago, i invite you to come back to our hostel, we have 2 terraces and an full equiped tv room, i will personaly make sure you can spend time with other passengers there. Take Care! Take Care!

They take very good care of tour groups coming from el calafate with a expensive tour package paid. If you are a backpacker, look elsewhere : bad beds, kitchen ridiculously small with no tools, staff at the reception preferring to chat on msn instead of answering my questions, forbidden to eat in the dining room (it's reserved for the "tour" clients), for bus to road 40 they give you informations about "chalten tour" the hostel agency but they don't tell others exist. Worth value for money ever.

This hostel is old and small but has a lot of character, good showers, good location and descent breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bar (which is also the reception !) is right in front of the entrance, that makes the bar a mandatory passage to go to your room, hard not having some beers or meeting people. Very good vibe at the bar all day and night. However, cleanliness can be improved and there are not enough tools in the kitchen.

Milhouse Avenue

It's a party hostel so you should know what to expect. I slept quite well each night in a dorm on the first floor, just above the party area; so no noise issue. Very clean rooms and bathrooms, good breakfast, efficient staff. Pre-Disco parties are correct and finish at 2am for the sleepers; drinks prices at the bar are very reasonable. The restaurant closes too early for my taste (before 9pm) and only sells salty stuff. The 10h30am deadline for the breakfast is not enough for a party hostel.
