Equity Point Marrakech

Marrakech, Morocco
69%

The hostel is fine, but not great. The Barna Equity Point is much better, but then that one is expensive. The beds were large and comfortable, with huge ceelings in the rooms, but the bathroom was so tiny! That said, there was great water pressure and hot water in the shower. The breakfast had lots to offer, but eveything was of poor quality. Do not buy the hostel water under any circumstance, it is more than twice the price of anywhere else in Morocco, even the desert village we went to!

Funky Fes

Fez, Morocco

A brilliant hostel. Large lockers in the bedrooms. Lage, comfortable beds, but no creels, which would be dangerous to fall from the top bunk bed if you turn in your sleep a lot. The bathroom was huge, with a giant shower, with hot water and decent pressure. The breakfast was fine, with bread, butter and coffee. We did the Walking Tour and the Volubilis Day Trip, and both were great. I highly recommend Voubilis. We spent one night in the double room, and it was so lovely! Again, highly recommend!

A really nice hostel, super clean bedrooms and bathrooms, nice staff. Location brilliant, only 5 to 10 minutes walk to the city centre, HMS Great Brittan, and the University, lots of restaurants and bars. The bar on the boat behind the hostel is really good! No breakfast included.

The kitchen was a little messy. The bedrooms were clean, but rather bare. The lockers are very small. The girl was not very friendly when we were checking in, but maybe we caught her at at bad time because she and the rest of the staff were very helpful for the rest of the stay. The computers are very expensive to use. The common room is a little small, but good for meeting people. The showers are down in the basement, which means three flights of stairs in a towel, which is a little awkward!

Astor Hyde Park

London, England

A perfect hostel for a night in London. The location is great, near two tube lines, Imperal College, The Royal Albert Hall, and Hyde Park. The bathrooms are quite clean, and the bedrooms very clean. There is a free breakfast, but it is rather basic. The common room is quite large and comfortable. The showers are hot and strong. The computers are expensive to use the internet on. The staff are very friendly. Try to ask for a room near the ground floor, it's a long way up to the top!

Hostal La Casa de Felipe

Taganga, Colombia

Not a very clean hostel. There are cockroaches everywhere! Besides that... the bedroom was very nice, comfortable beds, lockers which are a bit small. The bathroom was clean, and the shower fine, but it was next to the kitchen, so that was very loud, and sometimes smelled bad! Also nobody likes cockroaches in the shower/ bathroom/ bed/ kitchen etc... The kitchen is a little small, and not very well equipped, but it does the job. I recommend going into the city to Exito to do food shopping.

The Dreamer Hostel

Santa Marta, Colombia

The swimming pool is lovely. The kitchen is well equipped, but a little small. It is open air though so it is not too hot. The first bedroom was a 4-person which was far too small and hot, we switched to a 6-person room which was much cooler, and much bigger, with far more space per person. The bathrooms were clean, and showers fine. There are two computers with free internet. There is a large shopping centre nearby which is very handy. Octopus Dive centre were great and very friendly.

The hostel is very hot! Especially the kitchen. But the air condition in the bedrooms is very good, so it is cool at night. The bathrooms and showers are fine. The kitchen is not well equipped, but is large. The staff were not very friendly. The location is brilliant, only a few minutes to walk to the old town, and shops. There is a free breakfast, but it is very basic. The computers with internet are very slow, but they are free.

The hostel is quite nice. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and the staff are good in general. The kitchen is very new and well equipped, but it was not very clean. There were many ants running around! Likewise, that bathrooms were not very clean, but I imagine that it is very hard to keep one bathroom to so many people clean. I think they need another bathroom. The patio outside is lovely, and the Jacuzzi is a lot of fun andrelaxing! There are two computers with free internet. No lockers!

This was, without a doubt, the nicest hostel we stayed in for six months in South America! The staff are just so nice. The hostel is very small and cosy, so you meet all the other guests. The breakfast is super, and as much as you can eat! The is free great coffee all the time. The hostel is really pretty. The bathrooms are very clean, and the showers too, which are nice and hot. The location is in the very centre of the old part of town, and easy to walk to most of the main sights.

A lovely hostel in Manizales. Realistically it won't win hostel-of-the-year, as there was nothing outstanding, but it's a perfect place to stay a night and go on a coffee tour; The breakfast is great, eggs, toast and coffee; The bathroom is spotless and with a large hot shower that has great pressure; The bedroom large and spacious with big beds, though they are a little hard; The location did not seem very safe to us, as we were followed back to the hostel at night by people begging.

Bauhouse Hostel & Bar

This is a good hostel, but I think it needs a little more time to fully develop. There was still rooms being done up while we were there. The bedroom is sorta weird, on two levels, but it is huge, and means that everyone has loads of space, a bed-side locker as well as a large valuables locker. But the beds are very skinny! Though they are comfortable. The breakfast is really good, with great coffee and eggs! The kitchen is equiped very vell. They need to get a computer for guests to use though.

This is an excellent hostel, in a perfect location right on the oasis. The cleaning staff manage to keep the place spotless somehow, I don´t know how they do it, considering the amount of sand that everyone is constantly dragging in. The bathrooms are comunal, clean. The staff will make you a brilliant deal if you stay an extra night and go Sandboarding, they threw it in for almost nothing. The bar serves great food and drinks, and the pool is lovely. There is no breakfast which is a real shame.

This is the least good of the three Wild Rover hostels, but it is still a very good hostel, and it is probably that it is so new and needs more time. Compared to the average hostel it's great, but I can't help but to compare it to the other two Wild Rover hostels. The breakfast is the usual bread, coffee etc. The bathrooms are comunal, there are loads of them and they are absolutely spotless. The location is brilliant with nice views from the terrace. The staff are not as good as the other ones.

Another very nice Wild Rover hostel. The front door is constantly watched for security. The hostel has a central location, and is only three blocks from the Main Square. The bar staff are mostly Irish, the reception staff very helpful, the kitchen staff make excellent food, and the cleaning staff keep the place spotless. However the bathrooms are not as clean as the other Wild Rover hostels, since they are ensuite, so they don´t get cleaned as often. Breakfast is the usual bread and coffee etc.

This is a nice hostel, with big comfortable beds, hot showers. The bathrooms and rooms were pretty clean. The breakfast is standard bread, butter, jam and tea or coffee. The common area is nice, and movies are put on in the evenings. There are two computers that you can use. There is no kitchen, which is a pity. The staff were very friendly, but some of the guests were not very nice. Though I imagine that this was just a coincidence, since it was only one couple it seemed.

This is a really nice hostel, but make sure to ask for a room near the ground floor, and not on the 5th floor like we were! The breakfast is very good, a proper contentinal breakfast with some ham, fruit, yogurt, juices, tea and coffee, and bread, butter and jams. The rooms are nice, comfortable beds, and a clean bathroom, but the water was not hot in the shower. There are computers on the ground floor, and more on the 5th floor where theres another common room. Theres also free tea and coffe.

This is a really nice hotel, definitely the nicest place that we stayed in in Bolivia, but also the most expensive. The breakfast is served, and is pancakes, eggs, tea, coffee and juices, and bread, butter and jams. The bedrooms are large, really nice, comfortable beds, and clean bathrooms with hot showers. The is a computer that you can use, and the owner will mind your rucksack while you stay a night on Isla del Sol. You can also book Isla del Sol tours here, and bus tickets.

This is a nice hostel, and looking around at the others in Rurrenabaque, the best value for what you get. The rooms are confortable, with hot showers. It has great common room. The breakfast is not very good, as the coffee is terrible, and the bread is all salty. Also, the lack of an open kitchen is bad. Finally, dispite the staff cleaning what seems like constantly, there is mud everywhere all the time, which makes its way into your room. But this is the case everywhere in Rurrenabaque!

The kitchen is huge and well equiped. The garden area is giant, and would be lovely in sunny weather. Unfortunately the crazy girl with the baby ruins the atmosphere!

This is probably the worst hostel that we´ve stayed in in South America. The hostel staff were useless, and when we asked a question she suggested checking the Lonely Planet Book would be a better idea. There is no kitchen and no tv or computer for guests to use. The breakfast is standard bread and coffee, definitely not the "Best Breakfast in Sucre". It was also the most expensive place we´ve been in Bolivia. Finally the girls bathrooms were filthy, and no good showers anywhere.

Breakfast is a nice buffet, with bread, butter, jams, cereals, yoghurt, eggs, fruit, and teas and coffee. There is no kitchen for guests to use however, since it is a hotel. There is a common room with a tv and a computer. The pool is pretty clean, and quite big. Very nice to lie out by. East to find.

The bathroom was pretty clean, but didn't smell too good. The showers were hot and good. The kitchen was quite small and not well equiped. The hostel overall was rather warm, and the common room was nice with a tv. But there is no computer to use. Breakfast was standard bread, butter, jams and coffee. Right on the main square.

The hostel staff are lovely. They had a party one night we were there, the music had finished by midnight so there is no worry about it being too loud. The rooms are nice with big comfortable beds and lots of blankets, but they are a little cold and unsecure without a lock or key. The front door of the hostel was left open often especially the party night with many strangers coming in and out which was not safe. The kitchen is small and not very clean. Chefs food tasty.

The hostel is really nice, and the staff are lovely. Since the hostel wasn´t very full the guy upgradded us to a double room for the same price as the dorm rooms. He also let us have breakfast when we arrived early in the morning. This was without a doubt the best value hostel we´ve stayed in. The bathrooms were nice and bright, and clean in the mornings, but unfortunately some other guests didn´t respect them, but that is not the fault of the hostel.
