Only slept a night there, so my review is kind of simple, sorry. Dorm and showers a little crowded but they were clean and that’s good. Nice breakfast, enough food for having a good meal. Location is excellent since subway station is very near on Avenida Paulista. There’s also a supermarket just in front of the hostel.
Hostel cleanliness and security are excellent and the neighborhood is nice and safe! However, I wouldn’t come back here. It’s a party hostel, so if you want to sleep on Saturday, forget it! Parties are inside the hostel and music is played too loud even after midnight. Female staff is neither nice nor friendly. 8-beds dorm is very crowded and there isn’t enough space. Laundry is very expensive, around 13USD for less than 4 kg, more expensive than the bed in dorm actually, and it’s not on time.
When every member of the staff call you by YOUR NAME, you realized this is a hostel where things are done in order to satisfy guests. The best staff I met while travelling across Colombia. CONGRATULATIONS! Amazing breakfast: even if you pay for it (8.500 COP), it’s worthy since you can have all you want. What I didn’t like was being assigned a non-AC dorm; I booked by Hostelworld and it seems there’s no way for choosing dorms with aircon. It’s very hard to sleep without AC in a 4-beds dorm.
A little expensive, but you must consider Cartagena is not a cheap city. Breakfast is included in the price, I think, but that’s not a problem since you have different cereals, juice, bread and tropical fruits. The reception staff I met was a little unfriendly; however, the kitchen lady was so friendly, I realized not everyone is grumpy. Dorms with AC are amazing for sleeping. Beautiful patios. You’ll have plenty of space in this hostel. I recommend it!
I felt at home here! The hostel facilities (such as computers) could improve a little, but the best thing is the staff. Reception guys and girls, kitchen lady and everyone else is very friendly, as most “paisas” are, and you feel very good. Location is very good since is not far away from a subway station and a supermarket: you can take a subway and buy everything you need without any problem. I enjoyed my stay there!
Something you must know if you’re visiting San Agustín is that you’ll have to walk a lot, but going up and down the hills will give you stunning views. Casa de Nelly isn’t far away from neither town nor the main archeological park, but it’s true you’ve to walk and sometimes is tiring. I slept in single room shown on the 7th picture and it was amazing! The garden and house details are so pretty. Dinner isn’t included (12.000 COP) but it’s so delicious. There are interesting books for reading.
Nice hostel not too far away from the bus station and downtown. I booked two nights, but I only spent one there due to personal reasons, so I didn’t take advantage of all the facilities neither the excursions and activities they organize. However, I have no complaints.
Location in La Candelaria is excellent if you want to visit downtown. I slept three nights in a dorm. Positive points: Price and location are excellent in Bogotá; nice and comfortable patios; security at night. Negative points: lockers are TOO small in dorms and there was only a socket in a four-people dorm! Showers are small too and there is no place for hanging your stuff (there’s a hook indeed, but inside and everything gets wet when taking a shower). Wi-fi not available in most of the areas.
Unfortunately, only spend two nights here. This hostel is amazing: comfortable dorms, very clean, excellent location and amazing staff, to say nothing of all the facilities. I regret not having taken pictures wearing some of the Japanese costumes at the reception. I chose Khaosan Kabuki because it was awarded the best hostel in Japan and now I can see why. Little details from the staff make you feel very comfortable. If coming back to Tokyo next year I’ll stay at Khaosan Tokyo Kabuki for sure!
Great hostel! Very easy to arrive there from Tokyo Station on my first night in the city. One of the best I slept in Japan. Clean dorms, however, curtains for beds are needed (as seems to be common in other hostels in Japan) especially when other guests arrive late and turn on the lights. Loved the common room – even if most of the guests don’t interact with each other due to their tablets or smartphones, facilities provided by the hostel are amazing.
Loved the futon-like beds in dorms. Unfortunatelly, I only spend one night there and left very early in the morning towards Nikko.
I did FEEL AT HOME at Sumica Guesthouse! Kumiko-san and Satô-san are the best hosts I found in Japan and they made me feel at home. Their house is just a couple of minutes from the train stations and the bus stop, so you won’t find a better location in Nikko. In my opinion, the best guesthouse in Japan due to their familiar atmosphere: Kumiko-san and Satô-san are so kind and have excellent recommendations for their guests: Nikko, Chuzenji-ko, onsens and restaurants... Thanks for everything!
Guesthouse Mikuniya is THE BEST guesthouse I stayed in Japan. Everything was perfect! Terazawa-san is an excellent host and his house is very pretty and amazing! A complete kitchen with free food for breakfast, a huge nice common room, beautiful Japanese style dorms, a beautiful garden; origami and calligraphy lessons at night and even a present for me when I checked out. I did love everything! I enjoyed a lot my stay there. Arigatou gozaimashita!
I loved the Japanese style TV-common room on the second floor! Very clean and comfortable. I only spend a night in Hiroshima, but my stay at Hana Hostel was perfect. There was even sake tasting! Tomo-san was so nice and explained me about sake.
Great location since Osaka station is not far away (it’s possible to go there by train or walking). Great staff, friendly and helpful. Dorms are big enough and clean, bathrooms too. When I arrived, there was an international party on the common room and guests could meet each other (the only one I had while in Japan). Many restaurants on the Fukushima area. J-Hoppers is a good choice if staying in Osaka. However, maybe a new computer for guests’ use will be a little improvement.
Even if I only spend two nights in Kyoto, I must say Hana Hostel is amazing! I enjoyed my stay there since you have everything you need when travelling. The rooms are very comfortable and clean; every space inside the hostel (bathrooms, common room) is so clean. Great location, less than five minutes from Kyoto station, so you can take a train or a bus easily. I have no complains and I recommend this hostel.
After flying almost 19h and travelling 2.5h by bullet train from Tokyo, I slept my 1st night in Japan here; I must say it was the best choice for starting my trip across the country. Nara is an amazing city and Guesthouse Naramachi has an atmosphere that make you feel as if you were living in a traditional Japanese house: shoes off, dorms on the 2nd floor, picturesque façade. Shunju & Kumiko are excellent guests with good advice for you. Bikes for rent are the best way for exploring Nara!
A nice place near downtown – less than 15 minutes walking – so there is always movement on the streets and that could be an inconvenient if you’re looking for a peaceful place. However, that gives you the experience to know a real Lima, not only the touristic districts such as Miraflores or Barranco. Bathrooms and dorms are big enough, but they’re a little dusty. Breakfast is very basic but that’s normal in Peru. The Parque de la Reserva is very near – don’t miss its amazing fountains.
Nice and clean dorm and bathroom. Good breackfast (not included but not expensive). There’s only one computer, but it works very well (finally a computer with Windows 8 in Peru!). Wi-fi only in the living room. You’ll receive a key in order to leave and enter the house whenever you want – that’s very useful if you’re taking a tour and coming back late. If you’re visiting Huaraz (and the Cordillera Blanca), you’ll use the hostel just for sleeping. Not a party hostel even if there’s a bar.
The cleanest bathrooms in a hostel I saw in Peru! However, that isn’t the only good thing about Nasca Lodge. The owner, Maribel, is very friendly and efficient in helping you during your stay. I arrived early in the morning and a taxi sent by her was waiting for me. In addition, she arranged a flight for me on that very day, so I didn’t have to wait too much for seeing the Nazca Lines. Even if the street seems unsafe or dirty, don’t be afraid: Nasca Lodge is a good place for staying.
Not a hostel, but a REAL WONDERFUL PALACE if compared with other Peruvian hostels. It’s the perfect place for staying! You’ll find EVERYTHING here: TV, videogames, books, laundry service, a complete kitchen, computers, wi-fi, tours, hammocks, a very kind and friendly staff, excellent location,… anyway, EVERYTHING! I do regret just staying there one night. In addition, Arequipa is a beautiful city, one of the most pretty cities in Peru. I loved the time I spent there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Do not book in this hostel. There are better places in Puno. Dorms are TOO crowded – there is not enough space for backpacks. Staff guys are nice, but the owner’s attitude sucks. During my last day, there was only boiling water in the showers! Just imagine; you cannot take a shower unless you like having the skin burnt. Even if I paid less for this problem, I would not come back. Only slept there two nights, but it was the worse hostel during my travel around Peru.
The hostel is expensive if you compare prices once you are on the island. The family that runs the place is very nice, but that does not justify such prices. No water for taking a shower, since there are no pipes on the island. The house is clean and the single room has an amazing view of the Titicaca lake and the Royal Mountains. You must consider that visiting the island is for trekking only – do not expect to find fun or bars here.
A free t-shirt when checking in! Awesome! Beautiful building! Dorms are a little crowded yes, but you’re not spending the whole day inside if you’re in Cuzco… unless you’re suffering “soroche” due to the lack of enough oxygen and need to rest a couple of days. There are enough bathrooms with 24/7 hot water, for sure. Breakfast is very simple (as happens in almost all Peruvian hostels). Wi-fi is not very good inside dorms.
My first night in Peru after a long flight and I didn’t sleep well due to the noisy party outside my dorm, even if it was midnight. Bring your own ear plugs. If I omitted this little noisy problem, I would say I enjoy the hostel. Actually, its staff is extremely friendly (especially Stef) and they make you feel at home. Dorms are big enough and bathrooms very clean. Not an excellent breakfast, I would say, but it’s Peru. Bikes for rent are an excellent idea for exploring Miraflores.
The cleanest hostel I've ever been in Mexico! I’d booked 2 nights and when I saw my room (a 14-bed dorm), I decided to stay for a week! If you’re travelling alone, don’t hesitate to choose a dorm: they are wide enough and you’ll meet people. Excellent location, especially if you’re partying in Zona Rosa, the main gay area of Mexico City. An amazing gay friendly hostel! Unfortunately, there’s a lack of services such as breakfast and laundry, but you’ll find lots of places for eating not far awa
One of the best hostels I've ever been in Mexico! I did love the colourful of the walls! Rooms are clean and confortable and the yard is amazing! It's not far away from downtown, so don't be worry about location. Unfortunately, I only spent one night and couldn't enjoy the hostel and its facilities a little more. The staff (Silvia) is friendly and helpful. However, it's a little weird nobody is on the reception most of the time. I went out and when arrived at 2am, I had to look for my own key!

I could say it's the best hostel in São Paulo! Great welcome, friendly staff (I’m talking about Sarah), amazing decorate and an excellent location near bars, restaurants and places for enjoying nightlife.
Good location, the only good thing to mention. Hostel bathroom was dirty. The breakfast "included" seems a joke; it would be better buy something on dowtown. The staff isn't friendly: they invited us to a Forró dance school and when we arrived there, they didn't pay attention to us.
Do not trust the staff for booking jungle tours. Before my arrival they told me my tour would include swimming with dolphins, and I asked them several times if everything was OK. When I arrived to Manaus, the responsible for the tour told me there was a mistake made by José Fortes (the hostel guy) and I didn't have the experience with dolphins.
A nice hostel, very near the beaches (Barra). However, it's far away from downtown, so it isn’t a good option if you’re interested in history and want to visit places such as Pelourinho and Salvador’s churches. On the other hand, if you want to spend your visit on the beach, Hostel Porto Salvador is one of the best options. Rooms are amazing and everything is clean! The staff is nice and helpful, especially Juan. You can even do the laundry here spending a little money.
Amazing location! You can enjoy Pelourinho from the window. I can’t imagine a better location if you’re visiting Salvador in order to feel as if you were in the 17th century walking around all those amazing churches and colorful houses. However, the hostel itself is simple and crowded, and I must say I had a LITTLE big problem during my stay: BEDBUGS! I know the hostel can’t verify every bed after a guest’s departure, but bedbugs say a lot about the hostel’s cleanliness. Bring insect repellent!
Excellent staff! They’re so friendly and helpful – Erika and Felipe do know how to do their job! Congratulations! She helped us to arrange an amazing trip to Porto de Galinhas! The hostel is very near a supermarket, so you can buy food and other stuff easily. The only thing I could complain is the air conditioner – it doesn’t work very well and you cannot sleep due to the heat (even if it was winter!).
Nice room: four beds and a bathroom. However, too much noisy due to the buses and cars on the avenue. The hotel is located near the bus station, so you can walk and arrive there in least than five minutes.
Too far away from the bus station and instructions aren’t clear, so you can get lost in Ouro Preto! The best way for arriving is to take a taxi! We were four people and booked a 4-beds room. The room was very small and crowded and its door didn’t close – there wasn’t even a key! It seemed to me a lack of security. Reception staff doesn’t give any information about the city. On the other hand, breakfast is very good; there’s a very kind lady who bakes different breads and cakes at the moment.
An excellent hostel for partying! Lots of bars in the neighborhood so you can party every night! Nightlife is amazing in Rio! If you’re young and want to party, this hostel is the best option! However, the building is very crowded and there’s a lack of privacy – too many people in a small place, especially in dorms. Talking about tourist attractions, buses for the Corcovado, the Sugarloaf and the beaches pass very near thus you mustn’t walk a lot for finding a bus stop.
Great place for summer! Unfortunately, I went on winter and it was too cold and rainy. It's cheap and easy to go to the Brazilian Waterfalls by bus or by taxi. The staff help us to organize our visit to the Argentinian side, and it was not as expensive as I'd thought. The hostel offers lunch and dinner (R$ 15 for a all-you-can-eat buffet) which is delicious. However, the restaurant is a little small and you must wait for having a table.
Viajei quase um mês pelo Brasil e este foi O MELHOR HOSTEL de todos os que conheci. Realmente senti que eu estava em casa! Para começar, o pessoal é ótimo: Felipe foi muito atencioso, desde a nossa chegada na madrugada e Marlene é uma excelente anfitriã. As instalações da casa são ótimas: camas e banheiros limpos, e uma cozinha que adorei. Ótimo café da manhã! Tivemos até churrasco no domingo com música ao vivo! Não posso me queixar de nada! Se voltar a Curitiba, com certeza ficarei aqui!
The first hostel I slept in Brazil and unfortunately I had a bad impression thanks to Rodrigo – the day shift guy. We arrived after a long flight and he almost ignored us – during the check-in he was explaining everything to Juliane and he didn’t pay attention to us. He only asked us for our passports. I found this very unfriendly. I think Juliane was kind of trainee, but I think guests are first! However, I cannot complain about TÚLIO and DANIEL, who were TOO helpful and friendly with us.
A very nice place. The staff is very kind and friendly. Very good breakfast and dinner. However, the internet service isn't good enough: there are three computers but two of them don't work.
Excellent location: Zona Rosa is a very safe place and there's fun everywhere. Talking about the hostel, I have to complain about shower: there's not enough hot water and that's not nice if you want to take a bath early in the morning.
Auberge sympa! J'ai bien aimé le petit déjeuner à la terrasse. La salle de bains à l'intérieur des chambres est excellent, car on n'a pas besoin de sortir comme dans autres auberges. La seule chose que j'ai pas aimée c'est qu'une nuit la musique du bar était très forte, même s'il était 23h; si on est au 3è étage, on ne peut pas dormir comme ça!
Almost everything is excellent... the staff is very nice (Otto is very kind and friendy), good breakfast, confortable rooms and a nice atmosphere since the arrival. I cannot complain about that. However, toilets seem always DIRTY! Guests aren't used to flush the toilet, so they look always yellow due to all the urine. That's so disgusting! I suppose that doesn't happen in women's bathroom.
Pas la meilleure auberge de la ville, car elle n'est pas très propre, et il manque un peu d'illumination dans le chambres. Cependant, elle se trouve bien placée pour sortir à faire la fête le soir: Zona Rosa est un quartier très sûr et il y a plein de bars.
I was lucky to find a place in this hostel: I can say it's one of the best in Paris. Rooms are clean, confortable and you there's wi-fi, although there are some problems if you're staying on the 6th floor. Montmartre is a nice place; you can go out and find different things to do. The staff is helpful, but they could be a little more friendly. It's Paris, after all. The only bad item I can mention is the elevator: too narrow! If you have many lugage, it's difficult to use it!
It was my 2nd camping in my life and it was better than the 1st one. Tends are clean and confortable, even if I was bitten by insects (ants, bedbugs, I don't know) while sleeping. It's true the camping is a little far away from Venise, but it's easy to arrive by bus (from 6h to 23h), and there's nothing to do in Venise early morning. If you're travelling alone, the camping could seem a little boring; you cannot make new friends, because most of the visitors are families.
Giovanni is an excellent host: he explained a lot of things about Naples that helped me during my three-days visit. He's very kind with all the guests since our arrival! Naples is not as dangerous as many people thought. I spend two days there and thanks to Giovanni advice I enjoyed the downtown. Have lunch at Gino Sorvillo: best pizzas ever. If you visit Naples, you MUST go to Ercolano and Pompei, and climb the Mount Vesuvius which aren't far away.
L'auberge se trouve dans deux bâtiments différents: l'accueil est à la adresse donnée et les chambres dans un autre. Elles sont très propres et confortables; on reçoit ses clés donc on a plus besoin de passer à l'accueil que pour payer quand on quitte l'auberge. C'est pour ça qu'il y a pas d'activités collectives ou salle commune. Ce que je n'ai pas aimé c'est le personnel: ils m'ont demandé 5€ comme caution pour la clé mais à la fin ils ont "oublié" m'en rendre.
It's a camping, you must have that in mind. I stayed five nights and it's a little bit cold; sleeping is not confortable so. The emplacement is almost excellent: you have the best views of Florence near by (Piazza Michel Angelo); however the stairs for going up are a bad point (you can take the bus, but you have to wait too long). What I didn't like was the personnel; they lost my ID and I almost lost my train to Rome because they didn't find it... fortunatelly it appeared, but I must hurry up.
An excellent hostel in Prague! It could be a hotel! Prices are very good and is not fay away from downtown. I DID love breakfast! You can take as much as you can. And everything was delicious!
It is not a hostel, but one of the best hotels I've ever been! And the price is excellent! I have never thought rooms were like that, with kitchen inside (even with fridge!), a huge bathroom and everything so clean! I loved! I regret have stayed there just for a night. And the breakfast is excellent, you feel like at home.
I had thought it would be a nice place because it's not too old. However, the place is one of the last places in Lisbon I would recommend. There's no kitchen (there is one, but there are nothing, such as dishes or pans, for preparing meals). Rooms are for 4 people, but you don't have your own key; they are open for all the travellers! And the staff is so unfriendly it seems you're not paying money but asking for everytthing free: I did hate those guys (just remember the name of one: Nino)
If you're booking a hostel in Lisbon, the Yes! Hostel is a must! The best hostel I've ever been: everything is clean, rooms are so confortable and safe (I loved the bracelets) and dinner is so good I really miss Isabel's soup and cold fish! Isabel is an excellent cooker. Liv, Franco and Sofia are so friendly and enthusiastic since your arrival, so you can feel as if Yes! Hostel were your home in Lisbon.
Excellent place! I DO recomend it! Excellent place (main downtown street), excellent rooms anf excellent staff. "Petiscos night, I loved it!
I satyed just a night in Lagos Youth Hostel: the place is very nice. I was surprised when I arrived, because I had thought something different. Rooms are clean and comfortable; however, they're a little dark. Full of information about Lagos and near places such as Cabo São Vicente and Sagres.
The hostel isn't bad at all, but it could be a little more cleaner. Rooms seem dirty when you enter, so do the bathrooms. Th kitchen is nice and it's always clean, I liked that. The staff is very nice; the Italian girl is so kind.
La MEILLEURE auberge au Portugal!!! Excellent endroit au centre-ville, près de tout, chambres hyper-propres, excellente ambiance! Le dîner à 21h lui donne une atmosphère très agréable et il est possible de faire nouvelles connaissances. Le personnel (Liv, Franco, Sofia et Isabel) savent vraiment faire son métier.
The best place for the begining of my travel across Portugal. The staff DO help visitors with all the informations and create a nice atmosphere amongst travellers. Felipe himself talk to every visitor. When I arrived, I was a little worried about being in a room for 10 people; however, after a couple of days you can make new friends. The breakfast is almost excellent, because you can take what you want: jam, cheese, bread,... The kitchen is excellent, clean and with everything you can need.
Une excellente auberge! J'ai bien aimé tout. Le personnel est très sympa et les chambres si propres. Et elle n'est que a quelques minutes à pied du Vieux Port.
