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.
Good hostel for the price. The kitchen is fully workable and the location is 5 minutes from the central market to buy cheap products and food. Big living room with video projector. Showers are hot, wifi is dodgy. Staff is friendly and helpful.
Nice hostel with a lot of character in the historical center. A pity for the dodgy wifi and the random hot shower.
One of the best value for money hostel I have ever been. Great location, awesome kitchen and facilities, chilled.
Very good hostel, awesome staff, clean, quiet, great kitchen and facilities.
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.
Location is very good to visit the main spots of the historical city. Staff is helpful and the breakfast is good. Bathrooms were dirty all the time and the wifi was very dodgy. No laudry service is a killer for me, especially in a hot city like Cartagena !
This is a party hostel so you know what to expect. Nice building and good location in the historical center. Small but workable kitchen , nice swimming pool and rooftop. The staff working at the reception is not very friendly and the bathroom were wet all the time.
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.
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.
Very good hostel for the price with a very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast is very good.
Very good hostel located in a quiet street in Botafogo district. You have all the accomodations and transports nearby, the dorms are spacious, the kitchen is very well equiped, breakfast is very good and hostel is clean. The staff is very friendly, warm and profesional. Very good value for money.
Well located hostel in Santa Teresa district, near Lapa district. The staff is friendly but just one guy who doesn't speak english can give you tips and directions in Rio. Hostel is clean and breakfast is good. Only complaint is that you don't have a kitchen to cook.
Spotless hostel in the center of San Telmo. It is a fair hostel for the price but the kitchen is not really workable and the wifi is dodgy.
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.
Dirty cheap, no kitchen but good value for the price.
Not a lot of offer in Asuncion for hostels but this one is well located to visit the main monuments, quite clean and dirty cheap.
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.
Honest party hostel but a little pricey. Location is a little bit far from the center. The kitchen is ridiculously small. They offer good touristic package deals. Staff is nice.
Very good hostel for the price and the location. Location is ideal to visit the cerros nearby and the city. Very clean facilities all day. Very good breakfast with fresh fruits. One bathroom only for all the hostel so you have to wait often to use it.
Dirty cheap, best value for money in Valpo. No check-in/out deadline ! Muy buena onda in the living room all nights. You need to ask before to have hot water in the shower but it´s working.
Nice hostel in the center of Bellavista. Spotless location to party and to visit the city. Nice open-air patios to chill out or to eat in summer. Plenty of bathrooms to use with hot shower. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but OK. Muy buena onda when the hostel is packed. Very good value for money in Bellavista.
Location is excellent to visit the city. Friendly staff, good kitchen and good breakfast. They should improve the shower facilities, not always hot shower.
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 !
Chilled hostel, clean, with a good kitchen. Nice common area and nice pool in the garden to relax after a day hike. A little bit far away the main street, beds could be better, no laundry service and no breakfast for this price is a shame.
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 is a small hostel with a calm and quiet atmosphere. Everything is clean, great furnished kitchen and good breakfast.
Good hostel for the price. Excellent staff, always helpful. Location is 5 min walking from the main street. Breakfast could be better but it's OK. Bad point : no lockers on the rooms !
Good hostel to chill out. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast with fresh cakes and pies.
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.
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.
Showers are a joke of cleanliness. The dorm just in front of the desk where I was is very noisy (incredible street noise, from people entering the hostel all night, and the TV room nearby). I did not find the staff friendly at all. Breakfast was correct.
well placed hostel in barranco, very helpful staff, clean
