Excellent hostel,centrally located in cusco. Very hot showers (give them a few seconds to warm up..!) lockers, super comfy beds and the fastest wifi I have had in South America. The definitive plus of this hostel is its friendly and helpful English speaking staff who make your stay an absolute pleasure. Also had luggage storage for you to go off on your trek and come back to it. Definitely recommend for your stay in beautiful cusco!

everyone warned me i would fall in love in argentina.... i think they werent expecting it to be a hostel though! This hostel, and bariloche are both amazing. This location, is second to none.... i could simply have just sat in the living room, on the balcony, or even in bed as the views from there were spectacular... all day forever, Great staff, lovely atmosphere, nice bigdouble kitchen, amazing breakfast and lovely staff to help you any hour of the day. this is the ONLY place to stay!

excellent hostel! Great location ) although up a hill, if arriving after a long bus ride with a big bag... taxi is recommended... the subsequent wañls down and up are fine!). Great staff, comfoy beds, AMAZING hot showers, and right next to the supermarket. Lockers... but only big enough for small items is the only downfall... although this hostel feels so safe you needn´t worry. The asado nights are incredible!!!! highly recommend

Hostel Suites Obelisco

Buenos Aires, Argentina
94%

Excellent hostel located on one of the main streets in buenos aires. Very big rooms, with comfortable beds and lockers big enought to fit even my massive backpack. Decent enough breakfasts, plus cooking facilities. A few of the staff didnt really know buenos aires so well, which is a bit of a downfall if you are working in a arge hostel like this... its always good to have timps and information available for travellers. However the staff were always nice and friendly.

Timbo Posada

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

Great hostel, located right next to the bus stop and the city centre. Only downside is no lockers for bags, but overall seemed very safe (but you never can be sure!) Not alot of an atmosphere... But that's because people are generally off exploring the falls I think! I would definitely recommend and stay here again. Try the helado ( ice cream) a few door down... Amazing!

Backpackers House Paraty

Paraty, Brazil

I loved this hostel! Close to the bus stop, and a very short walk to town + next to a supermarket. Great vibe, and definitely felt like a home rather than a hostel especially with the shared meals each night. Definitely recommend this hostel for anyone staying in paraty, the owner is a wrath of local and Argentinian knowledge and this excellent hostel is definitely his making!

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Great hostel in copacabana! Definite plus about this place are the people there, voth the travellers and th staff are amongst the nicest, friendliest and helpful people I have met on my very extensive travels. No lockers for your bags is the only fault I could possible find, but everyone staying becomes your friend and this is not a trouble. I had read many reviews and a few complaints on beds which baffles me... They have no problems! Oh, and wifi connection is excellent ;) Recommend!!

It's hard to fault this hostel... Actually i cant. It is up a hill on the way to the castle, but it's worth the walk from the tram which is only slightly bad with a bag on the way up, the rest of the time is most fine! It says 12 bed dorm, but I was split into smaller rooms but still very comunal in the common room.alsways exceptionally clean, staff and lodgers were always friendly and lockers big enough to fit large backpacks. I really loved this hostel. And have no hesitation recommending!

Excellent value for money... Especially as includes breakfast!a few minutes walk from the square... Not a massive deal. Near to the ha station which is a plus! No chance of early check in, even if beds are free we found! Best thing about the hostel is the exceptionally plentiful and hot showers. A dream come true for travellers. Definitely recommend :)

Montmartre Hostel

Belgrade, Serbia
97%

One of the best hostels I have stayed around the world. Feels more like a home than a hostel, very clean and the staff are so helpful they become more like friends I was there over summer, and many of the beds were taken up by students, which means there weren't so many travellers to meet, which is the only small downside. I would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone heading to Belgrade however!

I am surprised this hostel is so highly rated. There are only 3 bathrooms between all the guests, wasn't particularly clean and a bit of a walk to the main town. The staff were really friendly and helpful, but apart from that nothing special. Also lockers are quite small and don't fit backpacks, only valuables.

Great hostel close to train and bus station and a short walk to town. Good staff always around and willing to help. Was a little warm in summer, and only 2 bathrooms which is a definite downside for a fully booked hostel.

Backpackers BCN Casanova

Barcelona, Spain

Pros: Good hostel, just 10 minutes walk to las rambles. A good communal area and kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and in-house laundry. Excellent security, and lockers big enough to fit big packs Cons: It was quite hot when I was there and at nights was a bit difficult to sleep, even though there was air conditioning, it apparently couldn't be turned down to a cooler temperature, and we couldn't open the window due to outside noise.

I can't say any greater things about this hostel, it absolutely is the place to stay in San Sebastián! Close to the beach and the town, friendly staff, great facilities and cleaned often enough that you hardly realise people are walking sand in and out every 5 minutes. An awesome communal area filled with people from around the world to meet and chat to... And I won't even start on the pub crawls which are an absolute must do! This place definitely feels more like a home than a hostel.

Pros: Good hostel located in the medina in Marrakech. Great and very helpful staff who are always around to offer information and local knowledge Cons: it was VERY hot in this hostel.

Pros: hostel is quite close to the centre, a direct metro to the city centre. Curtains around beds, and rooms cleaned thoroughly daily, and big lockers to fit backpacks! Also the bar underneath is good for food and drinks :) Cons: quite expensive,,, it is Paris I guess! No communal area or kitchen (other than the bar downstairs) so quite hard to meet people, especially as people in your room will generally be out and about exploring Paris most of the day! Still, a great hostel for Paris

such a antastic hostel! a little out of the centre of the city( 15 mins walk), but nice to be awayfrom the hustle bustle and see belgrade as you wander in to town. Met some really lovely people, and even nicer staff who were only ever to help with anything! Would definitely recommend


Apartments & rooms Stella

Dubrovnik, Croatia

as other reviews previously stated, a little out of town, and alot of stairs!! about 10 - 15 minutes to town, and a little more going back up (especially if its 36 degrees as when we were there!) fantastic apartments though. lovely owners, clean and very tidy. Probably more suited to those looking for som peace, as no common room. however these is a common kichen with all usual household facilities. would definitely recommend and stay again ( if happy to walk 500 stairs..no exageration)


Beach Hostel

Split, Croatia

this hostel was as the description says, a little out of town, but right next to the beach, restaurants and bars..all positives! stayed here only one night, but happened to be exceptionally hot!! werent able to leave windows open during the day to let air in, and so the night time was painful and not alot of sleep. also no kitchen ( as description states) but perhaps some more cuttelery / glasses / plates would be good (though we stayed there in the first few weeks, could have changed!)
