I love this place. I stayed there the second time and it is the perfect place to stay while in Rio. Hot shower, clean comfy beds, nice helpful staff.

The receptionist forgot to order my taxi in the morning - had to catch one on the street, which was okay. Worst mattress I have ever slept in, but apart from that a good place to stay.

I was really sick while I stayed in Puno. Luz cared for me a lot and I am very thankful for that. I was really lucky to stay there. It is a good place to stay while in Puno. Close to the Plaza de Armas.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in during this Peru trip. It gets a bit loud during the night as people like to party in the garden. Nevertheless, great place

The location is great to experience Nazca. I had a dorm to myself what was also great. unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding regarding the tours. taking the flight tours is great, but the so-called group tour was a rip-off. maybe it is better to book a group tour in a professional tourist office

I would not stay in the single room as it is very cold, moist and there are a lot of insects, but apart from that a good place to stay.

CaipiHostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
6.0
7th Jul 2013

I arrived late night and when I wanted to get a bite, the streets were filled with homeless people and prostitutes. Wet rooms were not clean. Apparently a lot of locals stay at this hostel to party, so it is loud until the morning. due to the fact that walls and windows are so thin you need earplugs to sleep. (hostel must be aware of this as they already offer them.) conclusio: if you do not mind sleeping with earplugs, having no kitchent and a bit shady audience, here you got a cheap option

Hi there. Lapa is undergoing a big change and it getting better everyday. It is not a fancy neighborhood, and we like to believe that you will get the real experience. Despite the feeling(this is not Oslo), we are in front of the Central Police Station, and there is no real concern regarding security. We do get a lot of Brazilians from times to times, but this is a good thing, after all your traveling here :) Please understand that one night is not enough to fully experience the CaipiLife.

It is a very quiet place to stay at. - No parties, but the absolute plus is the location as you can go easily by bus to the airport and all the attractions.

I absolutely loved it there. I felt safe and they offer a lot of information. Airport pick-up is 85 BRL not 70 BRL, but apart from that I could not point out any negative aspects. Great place to stay with nice atmosphere. :-)

The staff of the hostel was really great. While I was there, there weren't a lot of people. So I had a dorm for myself and they didn't try to put other people in. They tried to help you where they can and give useful information. I would recommend to get the airport transfer as the hostel might be difficult to find in the beginning. For women traveling alone I would recommend taking a taxi for 2 eur from the big place to the hostel at night. During the day no problem. Great stay!!

The hotel itself is great and the staff is very very helpful. However, I booked three tours at Saigon Mini. - Two tours were a waste of time. The tour guides spoke barely English and had such rough accents that they could not be understood. - Cu Chi and the guide "Chi" were awesome.

It was difficult to find. The staff was rather annoyed that they had to stop playing video games and stop watching TV. Not a really warm atmosphere. Rooms are smelly and do not have windows. Not the best choice for the price. No safe! Had to leave everything in the room.

I had a great time in the Ninja. The staff is great and help you in a lot of ways. The location is really great if you have a Japan Rail Pass. I met nice people to have fun with there. If you want to go out every night it is too far from the action and taxis are really really expensive. (Except you party until 5am, then the public transport operates again) Take a capsule. It is an experience!
