21st May 2013

New hostel that's only waiting for more customers to take off big time. Nicely located close to Bocagrande. 10 min. walk tot supermarkets. < 5 to the nearest beach. The staff is amazingly helpful, bed's are great and everything's (very) clean. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Stayed here early May. Salsa classes and good breakfast included are great plusses. Beds are nice and overall cleanliness is not bad. Apart from that: if the building ain't finished, don't open the hostel. Cold showers, noisy constructionworkers and clogged toilets don't improve the experience. Location is not very good and the staff seemed more interested in watching footballlivestreams and writing fake HW-reviews (>90% just couldn't be true) then in helping (or responding to) paying customers.

Hostal Atacama Tatai's, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

8th Mar 2013

With in mind San Pedro is in the middle of the desert this hostel offers good value for money. No more, no less. Nice, clean beds, nice courtyard, no lock(er)s and the kitchen is a little too small to be used by the staff at rush hour.

Kitchen cleaning during rush hour is a nono. Besides that: I don't like longstayhostels. I like travellershostels. Good enough for an overnight stay though.

Definitely worth the 10 minute walk from downtown Q'town. You sleep in a cabin with it's own facilities which get you into contact with fellow travellers very easily and makes that everyone feels responsible for the state of the cabin. I'd recommend the YHA, but when that's full, this is a great second for the non-party-hostel-lovers like me.

Seems like a great partyhostel. Not my cup of tea. Nevertheless: it's clean, facilities are great, location is great (downtown Q'town), it's cheap, what more do you want?

16th Jan 2013

Awesome place to sleep! It's in the middle of the jungle. Obviously this means facilities are not top notch compared to innercity designhostels, but that didn't bother me one second. I'd definitely recommend people to spend at least one night here when visiting Cairns/Daintree/Cape Trib.

Great value for money. Tae Sun is a great help and a good guy. I came back twice after overnight trips to GBR & Cape Trib. The free meal at Woodshed is a nice extra (don't expect haute quisine, but good enough for a stomach on a budget).

Very expensive longstayhostel. Didn't like it. They charge for everything. Which would be ok if they'd live up to standards. They don't.

Hurray for Howard and his great hostel!! He really puts effort in creating the greatest atmosphere. And it works. Apart from that: overall standard is just good. Clean and spacious with a nice rooftopterrace.

I'll remember this one. Will definitely come back here. Either as a backpacker or as a grown-up-tourist. Lovely place, kind staff, clean, great food, best value for money.
