The building itself has good security with two gates but luggage room wasn't secure with any random person having access to it and there were no lockers in reception for valuables. Showers were inconsistent and often had cold water. For a hostel of its size it was understaffed with usually only one person at the desk. Sometimes it took ten minutes to be served because other guests were booking buses/tours.

Pariwana Hostel Cusco

Cusco, Peru

This is a large hostel with a great bar/restaurant, but it can be noisy at night. There was always a shower or computer free and the lockers have power points inside - bonus for charging those valuable electronics! The reception is usually busy but only due to number of people coming and going. Beds were huge and super comfy, with lots of room in the dorm and big lockers for each bed. Info centre is a let down, book your ongoing bus ticket at the station...

Arthy's Guesthouse

La Paz, Bolivia

This hostel only has private rooms which suited us being a couple not out to party (on this occasion). Very close to bus station, witches market, tour agencies etc. Breakfast is 10 BOB extra for toast and coffee. Staff were excellent, very helpful and they stored our bags while we went to the Amazon.

Kia Ora! (Thank you in Maori.)

KulturBerlin Sucre

Sucre, Bolivia

We stayed in a double room and didn't want to leave. The room had rustic charm and felt like a home not a hostel. No kitchen for guests to use but with a cheap cafe/restaurant on site it was not an issue for a short stay. We spent loads of time in the restaurant drinking, especially the cocktails during happy hour. It's not a party atmosphere, very chilled with lovely colonial courtyards and a garden to relax in.


Cordoba, Argentina

Had an awesome pool table room and a lounge with projector. We arrived early in the morning and were able to sit down and watch a movie before checking in at midday. The owner was really friendly and even introduced us to mate tea which he shared with us. He explained the concept of the hostel name mate is the same as the tea - about friends. This place is slightly older so even though it was cleaned daily it still had the slightly dirty/worn look. Kitchen could be more well equipped.

Marcopolo Inn Iguazu

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

The hostel is directly opposite the bus station so if you catch the bus from the border you will be dropped directly in front of the hostel - no lugging bags half way across a city! Also, the bus to the falls leaves from outside the same bus station. The staff are really friendly and the bar has a good atmosphere with reasonable drink prices. Happy hour (seems to be never ending!) caiparinhas are 2 for 30 pesos. The pool would be great in summer as would the outdoor areas.

Hostel Manga Rosa

Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

Best BBQ even after 3 weeks in Brazil! Have to catch two buses to falls and Argentinian border but it is very close to the Itaipu dam and the owners always give you good directions.

Paraty Beach Hostel

Paraty, Brazil

It was raining for the days we stayed at the hostel so this put a "dampener" on our experience. If the weather is good this would be a fantastic place to stay.

Sorry I would love to know how to change the weather but that is just impossible. Hope you come back one day with good weather ..

HI Holandes

Ilha Grande, Brazil

This hostel was a piece of paradise on a tropical island. Marcella was extremely friendly and helpful, she even helped us book our bus tickets to Campo Grande. Her colleague was constantly baking fresh cakes which were provided with coffee in the evening and with our delicious breakfast. She also made amazing caipirinhas. It's not a party place and it was lovely relaxing in the hammocks or in our own chalet which was a steal at 40 $R per person per night. The dorm rooms also looked lovely.

Walk On The Beach Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The location is excellent with a short walk to Copacabana and buses to other parts of the city. Staff are amazing, really friendly and helpful but we found out events through word of mouth rather than advertised in the hostel. Rio is a party city and lots of the people in the hostel go out partying together so if this is your thing it's a great place to stay.

Hayarkon 48 Hostel

Tel Aviv, Israel

We had a fantastic time - great staff, cheap beers and even participated in (and won!) a shabbat masterchef competition.


Shower had one setting - scalding hot and the smell coming from the drains wasn't pleasant! Overall a good hostel with all the required facilities and good atmosphere.

Casa Consell

Barcelona, Spain

A small bed and breakfast type of hostel, good location and nice facilities. My only complaint is that it is very noisy in the rooms, every sound from the common area can be heard even if people are making an effort to be quiet.


This hostel is huge with hundreds of people coming through and as a result is slightly impersonal and doesn't have a lot of character. However all facilities are excellent (except you have to pay for using the desktop internet stations, wifi is free) and there is a bar where lots of people go to drink and party


Poprad, Slovakia

When booking please be aware that there is a separate hostel room that is part of a hotel/motel so to get into this part you need to book into the dorm room. We booked a three bed private room and subsequently were booked into the hotel/motel section and didn't have access (until we asked) to the hostel facilities such as the kitchen and fridge. Breakfast is not included - it costs 5euro. The staff did not know much about the area and they didn't have maps etc ready for us.


Great location, right next to the old town and 10 min walk to the beach. breakfast wasn't very good, and bit of a mess being served in the bar area. Paella made by Fabio was great though and he even gives a lesson as he is making it.


The seafood paella is amazing, and the 'free' walking tour by Aric really great - different and exicitn- well worth the tip... Overall a good hostel in a good location with lots of activities. Although I did get locked in the bathroom!

The Garden Backpacker

Seville, Spain

A great breakfast and common areas. Staff were very helpful and there were lots of activities everyday. Toilets and showers were a bit strange as the windows opened out into the central area so people could hear you in the loo!


We stayed here as part of a tour package so didn't choose the hostel. Overall, I wouldnt recommend it or stay there again but wasn't the worst place I have been to thats for sure. It was nice and new with air con, (very important when it hits 47 degrees celsius!) and had a washing maching and dryer. A good location in the old town, walkable distance to most places (catch tram to beach). Each person had their own locker and breakfast is provided (average) however there were lots of downsides.
