Mi Viejo Hostel

Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay
86%

The hostel's in a great spot, very close to the port and bus station and not far from the old town. The atmosphere in the hostel was a bit weird when I was there, but that may have just been the people there that day. A good place none the less.

Dolce Vita Hostel

I really enjoyed my stay here and stayed longer than expected because of that. You can easily reach the hostel from the bus station (one short bus ride) and can walk into the old city in about 15 mins. The hostel is a beautiful old building, very spacious, with lots of great places to kick back and relax. Staff were also excellent. Highly recommended.

Great spot. The location is superb, just off the main street and a short walk into the lovely historic centre. Thw staff were helpful and friendly and my bed was comfy. The warm fireplace was very welcome in the chilly Uruguayan winter.

Bonarda Bon Hostel

Rosario, Argentina

This hostel is about as perfect as any you will ever find, and Rosario is a lovely city to while away a few days in. The hostel is on one of the central historic boulevards, with a charming park down the middle of it and not too much traffic. You can easily walk to the river, the park or the centre. Inside the hostel is clean, bright, with great facilities and helpful staff- a wonderful place.

Other Side Hostel

Really enjoyed my stay here. The location (not too far from the metro, a five minute bus hop from the Rodoviaria) is good, being more central you can feel a bit less like a tourist and wander into the centre or into Lapa, lovely. The staff were absolutely terrific- with proper advice and daily guides of the things going on that day you felt like you were part of the place. Lovely spot.

Discovery Hostel

I liked it here, a lovely place in a great part of town. Santa Theresa (the local neighbourhood) is a treat that needs to be explored. The hotel is a stone's throw from the subway and not too far of a walk into the city or to the beach. The staff were tremendous, top notch! The nine bed dorm was a bit cramped, but at the same time I had three good sleeps, which is all you can really ask for. Recommended!

Terrific place, I'd stay there again in a second. It was November when I visited, so only a few people were there, but I imagine in the summer it must be brilliant. Right between the train/bus station and town, easy walks to both. Top stuff.

Nice place, more of a hotel (with dorms) than a traditional boots and all hostel, but I liked it there. It was very quiet as it was November, but you'd expect that really. Takes a good 20-30 minutes to walk into town (slightly less for the station), but catching the bus is simple and the bus stop is right outside the door.

Not a bad place. Right next to the subway station- from there it's ten minutes into the centre of the town (on the subway). The bathroom situation's been commented on, If you need to extend to the weekend book in advance or there's a chance the locals coming for some Milan clubbing will have filled up the place.

One of the most unique places I have ever stayed- in a good way. Giovanni is a character you won't forget. He'll give you the grand tour on his computer, make delicious food for every hostel inhabitant and lead songs for everyone else to join in with. memories to treasure, you'd be mad to stay anywhere else in Naples. It's Giovanni's world and we just live in it.

Absolutely wonderful place. Just a few painless stops away from the station by bus, then the hostel is a couple of minutes walk from the town centre, the main post office, a shopping mall with a cinema and everything else. Special word about the hostel owner, he becomes more of a friend than a stuffy old bloke in a hostel, I really enjoyed talking with him and he helped in every way possible. Stay here if you come to Novi Sad!

Choose this hostel, you won't regret it.

Better than the rating. It's more a pension than a hostel, so not much of an atmosphere, but the facilities are fine, the rooms are decent and it's a stone's throw from the train station (yet only a ten minute walk into town), so I'd happily stay here again despite there probably be more charismatic hostels elsewhere in Sighisoara.

Bucharest is a bit of a spread out city but the hostel's location is great, 10 min walk from Gara de Nord station and 15 from the Historic Centre or Romana of Victorei Squares. The facilities are excellent (one of the bathrooms is huge!) and there's plenty of spots to rest, relax and chill out- even a hammock. But best of all are the superb staff. Melania and Chris are as good as any hostel staff as you'll ever meet. Incredibly helpful, always smiling and always willing to have a chat. Yay!

Retro Moldova Hostel

Chisinau, Moldova

The bunker is genuinely magnificent. Sadly there were others sleeping down there when I stayed, but I gather usually it is less busy and the bunker can be used more as a hangout area. The hostel is a short walk from the centre of town which is superb. My only real complaint was that because the hostel is reasonably cramped if anyone is having even a normal conversation the noise wakes everyone else up...and by the same token, if you are having a normal chat you're the one doing the waking.

Terrific place, staying with Luba, a grandma, in her house. She rents out the two bedrooms and makes breakfast in the morning. She doesn't speak any English but is very caring and sweet and helps as much as she can. Her grandaughter is on the other end of the phone speaking English fluently to help out if need be. Nearby the apartment (on the fifth floor) is a supermarket, restaurants and it's just a ten minute bus trip across the road into town. Recommended!

Still, that gave me the run of the place. Every cloud...
