Big hostel in the historical center of this beautiful city. The size of this hostel makes it less cosy then a lot of smaller hostels in South-America, although the facilities are fine. Hammock - Bed ratio could have been higher. There where only 2 hammocks for the 30 (!) dorms they have. The heat on the Caribean cost actually requires a swimming pool, which this hostel does not have.
Great hostel to chill out. Beer is cheap and kitchen is great to cook your own meal. Supermarket is near. If you can arrange to be here on a Sunday, make sure you subscribe for the BBQ. Most of the staff members speak English very well. They can help you with the greatest tips to get around the city. Rooms are spacious and clean.
This hostel is out of town, but the walk from the center to the hostel is very nice. The view from the garden is beautiful. A downer from this hostel is that it is nog very clean, so if you are alergic to dust, prepare for a lot of sneezing. You pay extra for breakfast, but then you will get a breakfast that gives you enough calories for the rest of the day until diner. Stock of beer was not present when we arrived after a long trip :(. Nice plus: you get a handmade bracelet when leaving :)
Nice place, all facilities are there. Not really a hostel-atmosphere. Breakfast is more than you would normally expect for included breakfasts in South-America. Very centrally located, everything is walkable.
This place makes you feel you are in a resort in Bali. Very nice garden with swiming pool. Decent breakfast. Hammocks in front of the lodges are not that good, although the idea of having a hammock in front of your house is very nice. The setting does not really creating situations for socializing, although a super social hostel with parties every night is to be found next door. Nice detail: you are not in the middle of the nice of the party-strip, but the village is small enough to walk everyth
Nice little hostel in the nicest neighbourhood of Lima. Very nice owner who can give you all the tips for bars and restaurants in Barranco. Cheap beers and bottles of water are sold. Beds are decent, breakfast is ok. Kitchen could be a little bit better equiped. There was for example only one fork available.
This was a disappointment after our nice experience with Che Legarto in Brasil. We have never seen the bar open, except for breakfast but that is not the time that backpackers are usually in their social mood. Nobody socialiced, everyone was sitting behind the computers (which had indeed a very strong internetconnection. Wifi was very strong, one of the few hostels in Peru that can actually handle a video conversation. Staff was very friendly.
We booked for 5 days and stayed 10. In this lovely city where backpackers tend to stick, KulturBerlin is a very nice basis. The courtyard invites all guests to socialise, activities are organised every night and the Spanish school that is recommended by the hostel is very good. If you want to be a little bit outside of the noise at night, make sure you book a room that is situated next to the second yard. The social chats that take place in the first, can last for hours. Best of both worlds!
Security was worst ever seen in a hostel! There were no lockers. Hostel attached to a pub. Anyone can walk in and go to the rooms. When we mentioned this, the staff answered that nothing has ever happened before so that we should not complain. Staff was not helpful at all and was chilling out with friends. We had to put our sheets on our beds ourselves. Bar only opens from 9pm.
The kitchen is good, the backgarden is atmospheric at night (with fireplace, hammocks and bbq) and lockers are big enough. However, we had to move rooms after two nights because of the possible presence of scabies. They cleaned the infected room immediately, but still a bit uncomfortable. There is no seperate toilet as both toilets are in a bathroom. If two persons shower no one can go to toilet. Staff is friendly, but does not speak English.
Nice social hostel with lovely backgarden. Every night one of the staff members takes the hostel guests into town for dancing and drinks. Beds, showers and wifi are ok. The sweet Argentinean breakfast is good and not limited to an early hour. Santiago, one of the hostel owners, took us to a match of his favorite football team (Talleres) and his favorite choripan place (best chori in Argentina!). Not an official hostel activity, but when you get the chance join Santiago!
This hostel breaths socialness. Staff is very friendly and will inform you about all the activities that Pucon and its surroundings have to offer.They organized a very nice hamburger night which ended in a big night out. Beds are really comfy and you can easily get all your stuff in the big lockers. Living room is cosy, comfortable garden to relax after a day full of activities.This place is only a no-go if you' re afraid of being social.Big up for the Dutch twins, Ally from Cally and Negra.
Probably best hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff is tremendously friendly, organizes various trips per day and they serve a cheap delicious meal! Food was better than we got in many Brazilian restaurants. It is comfortable that your orders at the bar will be put on your bill. However, I have to warn you: due to the fun you will have here, you will order more (beers) than you planned. So keep some cash for paying the bill when checking out!
The rooftop terrace has an amazing view over the city as a consequence it is a bit far away from Lapa and the beaches. Breakfast is very good (lot of fruit, fresh cakes and juices). Although rooftop terrace is suitable for an afternoon drink staff didn't put an effort in getting together guests. They were acting like a group of friends that was not open to guests, with the exception of Natalia, the girl who manages the hostel. She is very nice. All staff played some nice music after all.
We have never endeavoured such a lovely, chearful and helpful host before! Sándor was absolutely the best host possible! He helped us with finding our way in Budapest and was always prepared to help us with additional things. The appartments were very clean, and situated in a nice and central part of the city. We will definately come back!
