Cuenca, Ecuador

Really friendly staff, comfy beds and great kitchen. Only complaint is that the hot water was a little unreliable during our stay.

The Secret Garden Cotopaxi

Cotopaxi National Park, Ecuador

While there were things I loved about here such as location and tranquility, the volunteers I did not. The local staff were great and our guide when we did the Cotopaxi glacier hike was awesome (Carlos), however the volunteers were such a let down. One complained a lot and the guy who took us on the Pachachoa hike didn't so much guide us but walk 1k ahead of everyone and give sarcastic responses when asked questions. Food was also a let down on occasion (especially lunches). Beds were comfy.


Guayaquil, Ecuador

Definitely not worth the price and misleading description. We stayed here on two separate occasions,first in the private shared bathroom, second stay in the dorm. The private room was full of bugs, the light didn't work (had a dim lamp) and I very uncomfortable bed (can feel the springs). The dorm room fan didn't work, the window didn't meet the wall (full of Mosquitos), no curtains. This night, a staff member was in reception drinking loudly with a friend until 5am. Didn't sleep at all!

A massive place with comfy beds, a pool and a kitchen to cook in. This was a good place to relax and was quiet (although this would potentially change if the hostel had more people). Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The free pancake breakfast was watered down batter which you needed to cook yourself. I am all for the cooking for yourself, but the batter looked very unappealing! Don't actually think it would have made pancakes.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for your comments and for staying. Our pancake mix is freshly made every evening, resting in fridge overnight so it is easy to make pancakes the next day. However you find that it is rather a crepe mix as we cater for European tastes. (85 % of our guests are from Western Europe!)

Pink's Bungalows

Koh Phangan, Thailand

You get what you pay for. Don't go expecting lush accomodation, but the location is good and was really ideal for New Years (best thing about this place is they didn't drastically increase their price around this time). Really close to the 7/11 which you will learn to love!
