A pretty good spot. Security was fairly good (buzzer door and lockers for bags). Showers were good albeit a bit lacking for the amount of people there but its not too bad. The staff were friendly and helpful with any questions that needed answering. Its not far from Parque Kennedy or the Via Espresa bus.

Harmonia, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

18th Feb 2015

Well, Harmonia is a great little hostel. Its extremely homey and has all the facilities that every hostel has these days. The location is superb, a block from the main street of Ipanema and Metro station, whilst the beach is an extra 2 blocks away. What makes this an excellent hostel are Chris and Saskia. They are a wealth of information and are a joy to chill out and hang out with.

Zbra Hostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

10th Feb 2015

Its a good hostel. Its fairly pricey for what you get (you are really paying for the 'neighbourhood'). Most things were good. The security was a bit lax - there was no locked door at the front (a simple sliding door) - so anyone could get in. The lockers provided have keys - but my key was a little sketchy and would only work 50% of the time.

All round good hostel. Beds are comfy and showers are hot. Theres a kitchen with all the utensils. Staff are always easy to talk to and with great recommendations. The only downfall is the lack of breakfast....that would make it much better.

Zicatela Beach Hostel, Pipa, Brazil
7.4
3rd Feb 2015

The hostel isn't bad. It's in a prime location near the surf beach of Pipa. Breakfast was good and the beds fine. A few gripes: the locker they gave me with key...well it didn't lock. The other gripes were more of guests there who decide to turn lights on at 1am at night and be rude to sleeping guests.

Thank you for your review. We have many lockers availables for our guests, so if one is not working, you should just let us know and we can give you another one.

Jeri Hostel Arte, Jericoacoara, Brazil
8.3
23rd Jan 2015

A pretty good hostel. Its a bit far from the 'center'. But by far, its more like a 5 minute walk - not far for Jeri. Breakfast in the morning was top notch. And the owners were quite knowledgeable. The only downside was one bathroom for each dorm - it created a bit of a traffic jam in the morning/evening trying to get a shower.

Rodolfo runs a great little hostel. It is quite small (that is 2 rooms). But what you lack with size, you get a great cosy experience. Some top rules make it easy to socialise - like breakfast in the morning with everyone and no wifi between 8-10 to create a more social atmosphere. Rodolfo, helped in any way he could - ordering food, talking to the bus company and organising rides to Jericoacoara or Atins. An excellent place to base yourself to visit Lençois Maranhenses.

A good hostel, it's close to the center but also up a big hill. The hostel is nice and staff are good. It wasn't very social though

Hi, we're happy that liked our hostel. During this season, we all were a little bit tired because of the new year and the preparation for the carnival, thats why we didn´t organize any parties ou barbecues. sometimes depends on our guests start a barbecue or a walk in bars.

Pariwana Hostel Cusco, Cusco, Peru

28th Feb 2014

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.

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.

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'.

4th May 2012

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.

View Property Reply

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.

29th Feb 2012

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.

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 Praça 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
