Positives: Great rooftop terrace and an unbeatable location. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and the rooftop pancakes for breakfast were great! Negatives: The private rooms are basic, bathrooms were smelly, random hot water and pressure during a shower and no shower curtains which means water all over the floor.

We have 2 types of private rooms,Basic Double Bed Private and Standard Double Bed Private, the basic is cheaper because the room is small but comfortable with everything you need, the Standard private room are brand new with great view to the volcanoes, big windows and very quiet . we are working the curtains bathrooms for all this better.Thanks

Eco Pampa Hostel, Buenos Aires, Argentina

We loved this hostel. We stayed in 3 hostels in BA and this was our favourite by far. Mainly due to it being in Palermo, the coolest area of the city. It had a great social vibe, awesome staff, a cool bar tender, awesome roof top terrace and decent kitchen. We had a private room which was fine. Wifi was excellent and the layout of the hostel made it super social. If you want to experience the coolest area of BA where the locals hang out and not feel so much like a tourist, stay here

We had a private room. It was on the first floor and it constantly stank of cigarettes as it was next to the smoking area, but quiet. They know how to throw a party though. Location wasn't great as its dead on the weekend and always a 10 minute walk to anywhere. Staff were great. It is a party hostel so keep that in mind

Book it if you like a clean, great value, comfy and well organised hostel where you can get some good sleep. Also great if you don't have a lot of time in Buenos Aires due to its location and organisation/information. We found the atmosphere a bit stale however. We had a private room with ensuite. Really nice room. hotel quality with cable TV, comfy bed, black out curtains and air con. Staff were helpful with helping book bus tickets

Loads of construction going on in and around this hostel at the time we stayed. It was smaller than I had imagined with a main courtyard for socialising. The hostel had plenty of activities organised for each night of the week and the free walking tours offered by Freddie are awesome. They offer vegemite on toast for breakfast but comes without butter?

Location whilst not in the centre of town, it's excellent for getting out to tayrona and minca which is what you want. Santa Marta is dodgy. Big shopping mall a couple of blocks away. Probably one of the best breakfasts I've come across in a hostel. Private rooms are as good as a hotel. Staff were amazing. Great vibe here. Loved it

Primaluna Beach Hostel, Palomino, Colombia

15th Aug 2016

We found this place super expensive for what it is but maybe that is just Palomino? Food was expensive, even more than what we were paying in Tayrona national park. No aircon but we found we didn't need it. The hostel had a great vibe with happy hour every evening and was really social. Nice pool and great pizzas.

Well located near to Plaza Trinidad which is a hive of activity at night. less than 10 mins walk to old town. Getsamani is a better area to stay than the old town. Massive, quiet, secure private room, great air con and breakfast. friendly staff but no English spoken. The hostel is tiny and has nothing happening. not a great place if looking for a social atmosphere

Dory was awesome. He offers free bikes to loan and is full of recommendations for the area. You should re open the bar though ;) cheers Dory.

Thanks, for choosing to stay with us and for the excellent review and rating, it is most appreciated. Thanks for appreciating the free bikes and our recommendations for the area. As explained we have decided not to open the bar any more so the guests can have a good and quite sleep at night :-) Cheers, Dory

Great hostel situated in a nice and quiet area of Delhi. Great if you want to stay away from the hectic city centre. They cook lunch and dinner everyday for 100Rs and it's delicious. Staff were amazing and ensured that I had the best stay. Thanks guys. Met some cool people here. Recommend!

We had a private room with ensuite. It was clean, comfortable with a brilliant shower. Only complaint is that it was on the 5th floor with no elevator. You could not position a hostel in better location than this one. Every night the hostel organises events to get all guests to mix with everyone. They are cheap, fun, cultural and boozey which makes for a great hostel experience

Voted 2nd best hostel in Asia and it's easy to see why. If you don't plan on getting yourself stupidly drunk every night, book a dorm on the first floor. Hover your mouse over the room types when booking and it will give you a description including which floor your dorm will be on. Absolutely loved the cabin/cubical beds and the mattress was more comfortable than mine at home

I've stayed in loads of hostels over the world, I've even managed a backpackers in London for 12 months and I can honestly say that this hostel is my favourite. Awesome staff who interact with the guests, host party nights, encourage socialising etc. the type of people that this hostel attracts is also what makes it. If you can, go for one of the private rooms. it's totally worth it. I can not say enough good things about this place. thanks to the frendz staff. Much love from the rasta man :)
