Three young Americans studying in Rome set off for a weekend trip when they run into a beautiful model from one of their art classes. Also on her way to an exotic destination, the gorgeous European invites the coeds to come along, assuring them they will be able to relax and rejuvenate. Will the girls find the oasis they are looking for? Or are they poised to become victims for hire, pawns in the fantasies of the sick and privileged from around the world who secretly travel here to savor more grisly pursuits?

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Roth's dark humor and lacerating view of human weakness sometimes suggest George Romero; what he lacks is Romero's stubborn belief in personal morality."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"The movie is almost totally devoid of suspense, which is one of the marks of a true exploitation film. Why waste time with a bunch of false scares and tension, when you can go straight to the pain and suffering?"
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Gory torture bloodbath checks in for another stay."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Filmmaker Eli Roth tries to enliven the formula, but this sequel loses the grim surprise of the original without adding much new in terms of plotting or gory set pieces."
‑ Tim Grierson, Screendaily
"Roth não é apenas um sujeito doente e repulsivo, mas também um picareta sem talento que usa seus filmes para torturar o espectador como num de seus "albergues"."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Both nubile females and alpha-male douche bags are on the receiving end of pain (that's supposed to nullify accusations of misogyny, is it?), but really, we're all the victims here."
‑ David Fear, Time Out New York
"There's a keen intelligence behind all that gleeful degradation and it pays off in a finish that's at once ironic, satirical, and perversely satisfying."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"There are some grisly deaths gore hounds would approve of, but the focus is more on the motives of the murderous pervs and the inner workings of the snuff corporation."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"This second film definitely shows Roth's absolute courage as a director. He didn't pull any punches with this follow up."
‑ Lucius Gore, ESplatter
"In the end, one comes to the conclusion that Roth, like his mentor Quentin Tarantino, is someone who is very good at talking the talk but can't quite bring himself to walk the walk and himself make the kind of film his own are parasitic upon."
‑ Keith H. Brown, Eye for Film
"Eli Roth's Hostel: Part II is an authentic real-world creep show -- better, if anything, than its predecessor."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Hostel: Part II offers more hard-core horror and an even more outspoken message [than the first]."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Poseur callousness all the way"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The lasting effect of all three of Eli Roth's films is a certain kind of Grand Guignol "Punk'D", in which the "mark" is not only embarrassed, he's also cut to pieces."
‑ Brian Holcomb, Beyond Hollywood
"Roth's satire of fright junkie male castration fears and feminist castration fantasies, mandates that you're going to have to have your cock and eat it too, whether consumed live during elegant dining to the sound of opera, or by killer canine pets."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
