Dirtiest festiest hostel i have stayed in during our full 4 months trip in South America. Bed stains and dirty bandaid found in bed. Wet sheets and a mix up with out beds - female staff member was very rude and not helpful AT ALL! Very dirty shower that was not cleaned & dusty and dirty rooms with mould infested showers and beds. The other reviews are very deceiving thus why we stayed here and left after one night. The only good thing was the Russian guy working who was very nice and apologetic

Hi thank you for your review. Sorry, the moody nightshift girl doesn't work with us anymore. Bathrooms are cleaned twice per day, but as they are shared bathrooms, their cleanliness depends largely on the person that used the bathroom right before you did. We've had a good and long look at the reported mold infestations, but weren't able to identify anything worthy of your total-faillure-mark on our Cleanliness. We hope your experience in this marvelous city was good overall. Happy trails!


Stayed here 1 night mid-September. Basic hostel compared to others we've stayed in around South America. Seemed to be more staff staying than guests, they were hanging out in the reception area where the tv was. Double room with single bed bunk up top was clean.

Hi there thank you for your review. We're proud to offer the basics that a hostel needs at a reasonable price in this huge city. There are a bunch of boutique-esque hostels within a 1km radius of 3Dogs hostel, but yeah, you pay that higher price. We're sorry to hear you weren't able to mingle with our otherwise enthusiastic staff. They are travelers like yourself, and are generally into meeting new people. Perhaps if you'd given friendship another day :-) Happy trails
