    I enjoyed my short stay at Billie's Backpacker Hostel. Billie was an excellent host, and she and her sons run and maintain the hostel in top condition. Billie even offered to serve me some breakfast after noticing that the cafe down the street was closed for the holiday weekend.

    Pase una excelente estadía donde Billie. El hostel es como una casa de la abuela, ameno, lindo, con el ambiente perfecto para conocer amigos y hacer planes juntos. La acomodación no es igual a la reserva, es según disponibilidad de camas pero eso también lo hace chevere y divertido. En febrero el transporte público fue gratis pero limitado, pasa cada hora el bus entonces se debe planear actividades con tiempo Excelente hostel, nada comparada a grandes ciudades

    One of the best Hostels I have been to … great vibes of travelers alike .. Dee and other people at the hostel 😊 Billie is great … She is so kind , flexible & understanding when it’s coming to unpredictable things getting happening in the trip .. she provided a contact for a taxi as the Uber n Lyft doesn’t function that saved me during this trip & her smile & kindness just makes you feel home with the cute dog sugar ❤️ Thanks for hosting me & looking forward to come back when I get a chance ..

    Billie is a kind host but this hostel is unfortunately insanely overrated. Security was a joke, Cleanliness questionable, and I came back at 3AM after chasing the aurora to find someone sleeping in my bed. All Billie could say was metaphorically oops and that I had nowhere to sleep that night, so I left and went to the airport...
