i really enjoyed the firestation. lots of social space, the building has character and the staff were all really helpful. it felt like living in a shared house rather than just a dorm...which was nice. the only major problem (which staff did try to sort) was the fridge which kept freezing our food), but reception were attentive when we mentioned it and tried to bring in someone to fix it. i would recommend this hostel especially if you are planning to be in freo for a while

Venture Hostel, London, England

the hostel seemed to be in turmoil which was regularly played out on the guests. one night at 2am i was frogmarched out of my room and told to pack, while everybody else was trying to sleep because i was 'in someone else's bed' which then showed up to be a large error on their behalf. rules and regulations were rammed down our throats the minute we arrived but the staff were not briefed to pass on messages between day or night or computer. within 4 days my booking was messed up daily

Hostal Los Yutzos, Tena, Ecuador
7.4
4th Mar 2012

The hostal was nice. a very pleasant place to stay and nice for a break in the amazon in a town but with trees and river surrounding. the problem was that the staff tried to overcharge me- i had to show them written confirmation of my booking. After that they made me pay an extra 12% in tax, not mentioned in my booking. They would not waiver this and i feel that customers need to know about this ESPECIALLY as i did not receive this charge in other hostels in Ecuador.

estimated customer in the hotel description clearly says that 22% tax is not included, it is a pleasure to work for you in the best way, best regards

Yaxkin Hostel, Palenque, Mexico

Had great time at Yaxkin. In fact am going back there because everyone is so friendly & the vision of the place to become a unique eco-healing hostel is wonderful. At the moment they are trying to expand the hostel to be able to include more visitors & therapists for eco-residencies so one part of the hostel was a bit of a building site. They are working hard to complete as quickly as possible, but there are always space & accommodating staff close at hand, & soon, even better facilities!
