Jazz on the Park-Hostel

New York, USA

Staff are cool, and pretty good value/location for NY. Facilities could be improved a bit - e.g. a kitchen, and beds that aren't so small and noisy!

B Hotel & Hostel

New York, USA

The window in my room was only yards away from a raised subway line, with trains running through the night. This made it really noisy - I hardly slept for 2 nights, even using earplugs. I think the other rooms would've been loud too. A shame because I liked the place otherwise - nicely and newly refurbished, with good facilities, and pretty good value.

HI - Boston Hostel

Boston, USA

This is a really excellent hostel, really good facilities, very clean and new. Was also impressed they had a staff member giving guidance on a morning, and leading some free events. Only negative comment was I thought it was a bit cheeky to charge for luggage storage which most places offer free, on top of what is quite an expensive nightly rate.


Mont-Tremblant, Canada

Really cool place, staff were really nice, and lots of great touches - free canoes, an outside fire every night, and a free pool table!

Canadiana Backpackers Inn

Toronto, Canada

Really nice hostel, friendly staff, and lots of useful facilities. Could improve the breakfast and the free computers though.

CabanaCopa Hostel

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

I liked some parts of this hostel - it had a nice bar & atmosphere, and they put some activities on. Some things let it down though - e.g. couldn't pay on card for 2 nights on arrival, (despite what the info says - it has to be over a certain amount - i.e. 3 nights), the staff made me go get cash out. The beds weren't very clean, and smelled unpleasant. And one night the water stopped working in the whole hostel, so couldn't wash/shower/cook.

Klein Hostel

Foz do Iguacu, Brazil

Nice place, staff were very nice. Well situated for the bus terminal but very out of the way. Was very quiet when I was there, almost empty.

Marcopolo Inn Iguazu

Puerto Iguazu, Argentina

Nice place, very well situated for the bus terminal, and helpful staff. Would be nice to have more points in the rooms (there was only one).

Milhouse Hipo

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Really liked this hostel - lots going on, and a nice atmosphere. Would expect some power sockets in the rooms (there were none). And I wish more hostels would put in good bunk beds - not the flimsy ones here that shake every time you move.

Pax Hostel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Nice enough hostel, and the staff were friendly. Could benefit from some better beds, power points in the rooms, and maybe an organised an organised bar crawl or something.

Hostel Suites Mendoza

Mendoza, Argentina

Nice enough place. Was a bit dead when I was there though. Liked the lockers and power points in the rooms, but would benefit from some better beds (had the standard flimsy small ones).

La Chimba Hostel

Santiago, Chile

Really big, rambling building, with lots of shared spaces, and really good facilities. The beds were also big and comfortable.

Backpackers San Pedro

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Decent place, with a nice outdoor area. A bit futher out of town than some places though. And the rooms were a bit cramped - I had trouble getting into my top bunk bed, as the ceilings were so low.

Hostal Rural

San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

Really good place - close to the center of San Pedro, friendly atmosphere, and bonfires at night.

Gringo's Rincon Hostel

Sucre, Bolivia

Great place - one of the most sociable places I've stayed, with everyone eating together on the terrace. The owner was really friendly and helpful.

The Adventure Brew Hostel

La Paz, Bolivia

This was a decent enough hostel - nice that they did food, and the onsite travel agent was useful. The rooms were very cold when I was there though (not heated at all in winter), and I there are places in La Paz with better atmosphere, and closer to the attractions.

The Secret Garden Quito

Quito, Ecuador

I loved this hostel - really friendly atmosphere - the roof terrace serves dinner and drinks every night, which is a great space for people to socialise. I went out to the Secret Garden Cotopaxi sister hostel, which is amazing. The tour company downstairs is also very good.
