Pariwana Hostel Cusco

Cusco, Peru
94%

The main points are this: probably the best beds you'll get in South America - warm duvets, two pillows and comfortable beds; The bar has decent food and pretty reasonably priced, wifi is plentiful, and a travel desk. The staff are pretty helpful with any questions you need to ask. My only problem was I asked the travel desk for a trek that wasn't really popular and they got in someone from outside. The trek was fantastic, however the guide not so much. Do you research before booking.

Cafe Hostel is a pretty new hostel close to the metro in Vila Madalena. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Faciltiies are standard across the board for a hostel. The beds are fine and comfy. And the showers are pretty good. Overall a good value for money hostel.

eHostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
94%

Its a brand new spanking hostel (opened at the end of 2012). The beds here are freaking sweet and comfy (apart from the 3 tiered bunks - try to get the bottom two if you can). The facilities are good - showers and bathroom are fine. Though the bathrooms can get quite busy of a morning. It is quite a cozy hostel. The staff are really what makes this place. They will go above and beyond to make sure you have a ripper stay. Its the reason I kept coming back each time to Rio.

Hostel Estoril

Buenos Aires, Argentina

A homely hostel. It has decent beds and facilities. All that you expect from a hostel. The breakfast is a bit better than most Argentine Hostels. The only real downside was it wasn't really that 'social'.

Hostel Kokopelli

Lima, Peru
66%

The hostel is ok. It had vegemite at breakfast (thank you to whoever left that) and helpful staff. The location is great (only a few blocks from good eateries and Parque Kennedy), the downside to this is that Calle Berlin has a tonne of bars that pump music late into the even and into early morning too. However, the internet is shoddy (drops in and out. Or sometimes not at all) and the showers were cold.

Hola We had some issues with the internet indeed but I think we have now found the problem which our online security cameras system was creating IP conflicts and it is now fixed, at least it has been working the last 3 days perfectly. We never have problems with the showers unless it was a half hour interval on where we didn't realize we ran out of gas and had to change the gas tank, sorry if it happened to you. I will still look into it so it doesn't happen again. Cheers,

The rooms are a bit of a ramshackle bunch. Its not the best place to stay on the island. But it could be worse. The breakfast is decent and the owner/manager is always willing to help out.

Hostel e Pousada Tirol

Jericoacoara, Brazil
86%

A friendly hostel with great staff. The dorms were ok and the beds were decent. Breakfast was alright. The social atmosphere here was its selling point. Its got a great social vibe. The hammocks are great. The only downfall were that for the first few nights there was no door on the room (flies/mosquitoes could fly in freely - quite annoying at night). But that was rectified. And the big dorm bathrooms shower had no hot water.

La em Casa Hostel

Ouro Preto, Brazil

A great little hostel which would be excellent except that it was lacking some social atmosphere - but thats probably due to not many people staying there. Beds were great, facilities were great, breakfast was great and its right on Pra├ža Tiradentes!

Its got a prime location near Paulista and staff are ok. But the facilities on offer are pretty poor. The male shower was out of order for a few days leaving everyone in the hostel to use the 2 female showers. A strange smell also ran over the hostel on afternoons. It wasn't the cleanest place (yes hostels aren't always spick and span but this wasn't clean that much). The kitchen facilities were woeful.

It wasn't a bad hostel at all. It was clean and central. It was just a lacking in the social side with very little socialising and no real room to socialise in.

A cosy and good hostel. Rooms were clean and tidy with security lockers. Staff were amazing and extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast is better than most hostels in Italy.


Seven Hostel

Sorrento, Italy
90%

A great hostel with clean rooms and bathrooms. Not quite in Sorrento. But has to be one of the better hostels I have stayed at. Bit lacking in the fact that there is no Kitchen to use. Apart from that its a great hostel, be aware that they do allow families, school groups and the 'older' generation to book in. Also if you stay here try the chicken at Da Peppino!


Legends

Rome, Italy
70%

An ok hostel, nothing fancy. No real common room makes it uncomfortable to chill out and meet travellers. The pasta parties help with the budget and save cooking up your own meal. The location is great - its right near the main train station. But it takes a fair while to walk or get to anywhere else from the hostel. Its clean and comfortable. It does the trick.


PLUS Florence

Florence, Italy
77%

A large hostel, very good in amenities, though lacking a kitchen. Rooms and beds were comfortable. Sadly you were unable to bring any drinks to the terrace but had to buy them from the bar. Location was good - five minutes from the station and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout.


Goat Hostel

Budapest, Hungary
97%

A fun and sociable hostel. The staff are great and extremely friendly. It is a small hostel, so you get to know the other people quite well. Its location is superb, and its not far to get anywhere from the hostel. I guess the only downside to the hostel is the kitchen, which is small, but you can still make a hearty meal in it. I would definitely recommend it.


Lazin Hostel

Novi Sad, Serbia
67%

A good location, right off the main pedestrian street in Novi Sad. The staff was friendly and was really helpful with any questions. The hostel was a bit empty, end of season I think, so it wasn't as fun as previous experiences. But it is a decent hostel that is a bargain for your dollar.


Manga hostel

A pretty great hostel in Belgrade. The place is friendly and easy to socialize with people. The breakfast in the morning is decent and you are always offered some turkish coffee throughout the day. The staff are friendly and inviting. Would definitely stay here again.


Hostel Marko Polo

Sarajevo, Bosnia And Herzegovina
33%

I booked here for 2 nights, as it was the only place available, and only stayed for 1 night. BAD mistake to be honest. We were taken away from the hostel to a house 20 minutes from town. I booked a dorm room, but got a double room that cost more! The manager, Niki, is a pathological liar. By far one of the worst places I have stayed in Europe. Your better off going somewhere else..heck the streets would be better.


Hostel Magdalena-Lena

Mostar, Bosnia And Herzegovina
93%

This was more like a guesthouse. Lena and Magdalena take comfort in looking after you. Whether that be offering you a coffee in the morning or offering food when you get in late at night. The rooms are clean and tidy, and it is locted only about 2 minutes from the train/bus station, whilst the bridge is only 15 minutes away. Definitely a great place to go.


Dubrovnik Backpackers Club

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Apart from the location (about 15 minutes from the old town by bus), this place is not too bad. Its a very social place to stay with clean decent rooms - although somewhat pricey. The family that run the hostel are very friendly and knowledgeable and will make you very welcome.
