5th Dec 2017

The hostel has a very nice interior design, which gives you an immediate "home feeling". Close to a big avenue with shops and restaurants. Staff is friendly and helps out with recommendations. Shower areas were clean and had hot showers. Wifi worked perfectly, breakfast was available at a cost. Dormitories were spacious enough and had lockers. I would defo stay again in the future!

Hostel is well-located and gets quite busy. Breakfast is good, but WiFi is terrible. Rooms have lockers, curtains and enough plugs. Some of the staff are very friendly

I stayed twice at Minka and loved it! The staff and volunteers are very friendly and help you with whatever you need. You can buy a wide range of breakfast at the hostel (prepared in front of you). Location is good, rooms have big lockers and are clean. Showers were always warm and clean. Only downside was the kitchen, but eating out is so cheap you shouldn't be cooking ;) Would defo stay again + recommend!!

I absolutely loved this hostel! The beds are comfy, have a lot of warm sheets/heating and some dorm rooms even have a bathroom. There are big lockers with padlocks in the rooms, Breakfast was not included, but provided at a certain cost. Free tea, Colombian coffee for a small price. The whole hostel is built with huge wooden walls, it has a fire place, excellent location, all the cooking utensils you need. Staff is friendly and super helpful. Best place in Puerto Varas, hands down

This hostel is in the middle of the city centre and has all you can wish for. The staff is super helpful and friendly, atmosphere is nice, they cook vegetarian dishes every night at a small cost. You can cook in the evening from 8PM (before veggie food is cooked), showers are hot and bedrooms are comfy. Electrical plugs can be used with (almost) every type of electrical equipment without adapter. Would go back for sure!

Location is perfect for bus arrivals and getting around. Kitchen has most of the stuff you look for. Rooms are ok and beds are comfy with a lot of sheets/heater in the room. There are big lockers under the bed. Showers were not always hot, which was the only downside

25th Jul 2017

This is definitely a most-go to in Buenos Aires! Very home-like atmosphere with amazingly friendly staff. There are weekly activities like a delicious asado (BBQ) which helps creating a family vibe. The place has a good kitchen, music instruments to use, lockers in and outside the rooms, includes breakfast (with freshly baked cake) at flexible times and has 2 bathrooms. Location is central and close to buses/main road/subte. One of the best hostels on my world trip

The hostel is at walking distance from the bus station, super convenient! It has a pool table, ping pong table and a nice bar with affordable and good food. Every night there's a free beer! Rooms are spacious enough (we stayed in 8, but was only half full) and have lockers. Showers are warm and clean. Breakfast includes pancakes (be fast, because there's hungry people who take half of the tray ;)). Would defo recommend!

5th Jul 2017

This hostel is on walking distance from Plaza del Armas. It's cosy, staff is friendly and it has a nice (breakfast) bar and hot showers. We stayed in an 8-dorm and 10-dorm, 8 is obviously more spacious. We liked the lockers (some were big enough to fit a big backpack in). Don't try cooking here yourself, there are no kitchen utensils at all! Would recommend it for sure :)

We loved this place since it was in the middle of nowhere. Very friendly Belgian owners! Food was amazing, a lot of stuff to do in neighbourhood (cacao, coffee plantage, hikes). We stayed longer and enjoyed the nice pool. Check out was the only downside, it took super long because of a lack of math skills at reception. Staff doesnt speak english it owners do. Recommend it for sure!

The hostel is more expensive compared to its neighbours, but it makes up for it with its atmosphere. They organize different activities at night, have a nice swimming pool, offer yoga classes etc. Close to the beach, dorms are alright and have lockers. Food is very good and breakfast is a nice buffet. Staff is amazing and remembers everybody's name, big heads up!!

Hostel is very close to a big Exito supermarket (5 min walk) and close to restaurant/bar area. Staff is friendly and always keen to help out. On my 2nd stay now and hostel is always calm without an overload on people. They offer laundry at 8,000 pesos/kg, have some bar food and it has rain showers. Good place to relax after/before Lost City track! We booked in for a 3rd stay already :)

This hostel has the laid back vibe I was looking for. It looks nice, has a rooftop bar where we also had a BBQ. Rooms are locked with a keycard, there's a small kitchen, facilities are good and location couldn't be better. Definately worth staying!

We stayed at this place for 2 nights and loved it! Location is perfect (5min walk to the lake), staff was friendly and the beer is cheap. Showers were nicely hot, open kitchen with heaps of free stuff to use (coffee, spices, etc.). We had a 4 bed dorm, which was ideal size, with view on the lake and it had lockers under the bed. Would definately recommend it if you're going to Taupo!
