Girassol Hostel

Sao Paulo, Brazil
63%

This was one of the most expensive hostels we've stayed in in 17 months and was a real disappointment. The room and bathroom were fine but there was always a wait for the bathroom. The wifi was really weak or not working. The breakfast was terrible. One day it just wasn't put out and the other days there was just empty pots of jam and flat fried bits of chewy dough. The directions on here were useless so we got lost finding it.

Curitiba Backpackers Hostel

Curitiba, Brazil
71%

This place was fine, room and bathrooms were clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful with information. The kitchen wasn't great and not very well equipped. Breakfast was okay with sandwiches and fruit. Location good near a huge hypermarket and the Oscar Neimar museum. In general I would've given Curitiba a miss though - bit boring.

GreenHouse Hostel

Florianopolis, Brazil
80%

The room and bathroom was average hostel standard but the staff here really seem to know what travellers are looking for. They had a useful leaflet with all the bus lines and great advice including hand-drawn maps of how to find trail-heads. They did a great BBQ one night and provided free pasta and veg for everyone on another night which was great and we have never experienced that before in a hostel. Only annoying thing was there was always a wait for the bathroom. Good location.

Hostel Park Iguazu

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina
80%

A double room was much more expensive than a twin room so we booked a twin and it was bunk beds in a pretty small room. We decided to stick with the budget choice as we are long-term travellers but if you are on holiday - go for the double! Big kitchen but lacking in some equipment. Great massive pool. Great location near the bus station. The room was cleaned each day.

Hostel La Comunidad

Rosario, Argentina

All in all a very average hostel. Not bad but not great. The kitchen was fairly well equipped but extremely hot! Big supermarket very close. Bed was comfy. Showers were okay but just with a curtain in the shared bathrooms. Probably could have given the whole of Rosario a miss.

The Ritz by Hostel Inn

Buenos Aires, Argentina
89%

This was great value for BA. We had private en-suite room with aircon and TV for 250 a night and I couldn't find anything similar elsewhere. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. Kitchen was too small for more than 1 person to cook at a time but lots of cheap places to eat nearby. Great location, very easy to get metro to/from bus station. The 'blue dolar' really makes BA a very affordable city even on a backpacker budget.

Chimbas

16mts travelling and this was one of the best hostels we've stayed in. Well looked after place with huge kitchen, nice swimming pool, very clean throughout and helpful staff. The country was in the middle of a heatwave so our fan room was still a bit stuffy and the wifi was very patchy when we were there but the computers were always connected. A little out of town but the walk in was fine and we preferred having a short walk from the bus station with our bags.

Hostel One way

Pucon, Chile
77%

We realy enjoyed our stay here. Stayed over Christmas and the owners were really friendly and made an effort to get to know the guests and organized a bg BBQ on Cristmas Eve which was a lovely way to spend it. The room was fairly standard and comfortable. The kitchen is decent. There was a problem with the plumbing while we were there so the showers were fairly awful. We just wanted to relax but kept getting told about all the things we were missing out on in the area which we werent bothered by

Casa Verde Limon

Valparaiso, Chile
83%

Very cool feel to the hostel with a quirky layout, huge bright atrium, large room with high ceiling and a tv with lots of channels. The kitchen was well equipped. Location of the bathrooms through the kitchen was a bit weird. Great location of hostel close to everything. Very friendly and informative staff. Fine in summer but imagine it would be freezing in winter.

Landay Hostel

Santiago, Chile
80%

Although this is the most expensive hostel we've stayed in in 16months travelling, this is Chile so we just had to suck it up. As such it was fine. I had booked a double bed but was given twin beds and the room was clean but a bit small. Bathroom was clean and wifi very good. The kitchen was really well equipped which helped keep food prices town. Good location between the museums and the centre.

Sol Atacama Hostel

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

We had the private room and it was clean and comfortable. Andres was helpful with information and had good rates on tours. The kitchen was terrible. The bathrooms were clean. The shower went cold after 2 mins each time I used it but it was so hot Outside i didn't mind too much. Wifi went on and off but worked the majority of the time. It was the cheapest place we could find to book in advance and as such it was fine for us.

Comfy, large and clean rooms. Bathrooms were a bit pokey and always had soaking wet floors after anyone had a shower. Breakfast was great. The Colca Canyon tour we booked through them was good value. There wasn't always someone to answer the door and the kitchen wasn't very well equipped but okay for simple noodles or something easy.

Tayta Wasi Hostel

Cusco, Peru

Stayed before and after the inca trail and it was lovely to have a comfortable bed (two pillows!) private bathroom with a great hot shower and a tv to relax in. Breakfast was good and kitchen well-equipped for cooking. The walk from town was fine except we got caught in torrential rain once. The family that run the place are exceptionally sweet and helpful and always smiling. The only thing I wouldn't recommend was the laundry. Didn't smell like detergent was used and came back damp.

The man that runs this place couldn't be more helpful and the tours were well priced and organised. The main problem we had was the thin walls in the wooden cabins meaning that the incredibly loud events at the museum next door and the incredibly loud Australian students nextdoor who were up talking nonsense at 6am meant that I didn't sleep very well although I'm usually a heavy sleeper. Unfortunately the shower was also freezing the one time I used it. A shame as the man was so friendly.

Good location, walkable from Linea terminal and close to supermarket and shops. Easy walk into old town. Fairly comfortable room and the camp-style shared showers were really hot and strong. Double the price of everywhere else in Peru so far but that's because it's Lima. Would recommend.

Yellow HouseHostel

Medellin, Colombia

Really lovely atmosphere. Perfect location for us as we wanted to go to a football match and it's walking distance to the stadium and felt safe to walk back at night after the game. Good food options nearby and easy access to metro. Great shower. Friendly owner with some interesting views on Colombia - and the universe! Great breakfast. Not in the party area but that was fine for us.

GM Granada Hostel

Granada, Nicaragua
86%

Nice place, large rooms and clean bathrooms. The kitchen was great and well-equipped. Great pool and communal areas and it looks as if these will be developed further. The only issue with the accommodation was that on the second day the shower upstairs was just a dribble so it was difficult to wash my hair. Although this wasn't the hostel's fault we had (labelled) stuff stolen from the fridge twice - really annoying! and had a scorpion in our room so make sure you shake out your clothes!

Staff were really friendly and helpful. Beautiful courtyard. Room was fine although my one comment would be that the pillows were very thin so I got a bad neck. I would recommend this place.

Thanks for choosing us! You just needed to ask for an extra pillow :) We will take care about it anyway.

Suzie's Guesthouse and Hostel KL

Safe and clean with good kichen facilities (microwave, hot water etc) so can keep costs down on food. On one afternoon we were resting and I was bitten by bedbugs. We informed the staff and they moved us to another room and sprayed the one we were in so hopefully they're on top of the problem

Villa Pink House

Da Lat, Vietnam

Massive room with bonus of a little balcony. Good size bathroom. Hot water in morning and evening. The staff were great, incredibly friendly and with a brilliant sense of fun.the Secret Tour was the best thing we did in 3 weeks in Vietnam. So many tours claim to show you authentic Vietnamese life but end up taking you around sites set up specifically for tourists with a shop at the end. The Secret Tour is totally and refreshingly different and we learnt so much whilst cheeky Mr Rot made us laugh

In addition to all the great reviews of this place it was quite simply the best budget hotel we stayed at in nearly 4 weeks in Vietnam. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, great location. Nice clean and comfortable rooms. I've stayed in much worse hotels for much more!

Can't add much to the good reviews of this place.Fantastic hostel. Stayed in far worse hotels for a much higher price. Really helpful and friendly staff. Great filling breakfast. Tours and onward tickets made so easy to book and sort out. Would recommend to anyone.

Micro Hotel

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Very Micro - not possible for two people to do anything like getting changed at the same time. Very difficult to find and inside a dodgy looking building. However well located for exploring HK and very clean and well presented inside with very clever ways of attaching anything you might need to the wall (even a hair dryer!)

Rooms are fairly standard but it is the most sociable place in Anjuna so great is you want to meet other travellers and Sebastiana is super helpful with any questions.
