Very nice hostel! Great location so close to the busstation and a short walk from the centrum place. Very clean. Nice garden. Sweet owner with his white shadow ;) (the dog) Although the kitchen was a bit small for the number of people, because many of us cooked; but than can change from group to group ofcourse! The Wifi is only working in the kitchen and in the other not so nice room in the front. But we will recommend!


Good for meeting people. Staff were not exactly helpful when I had some questions about the city/buses. They did not explain anything about the hostel either. I met some nice people, so I had a nice stay. Wifi is really not working well. Breakfast was not very good. Showers had hot water, bathrooms were ok. Beds were fine. Rooms were a bit small, but ok. There was a lot of space to sit outside and they had a tv room for watching movies, which was nice.


Cheap and walking distance from bus station and to the centre. Breakfast is pretty standard and not too glamorous - cornflakes, bread and jam - good showers i reckon. Nice staff, v chill.


The blankets had holes in them. The staff had no idea what to recomend us. The breakfast was very minimal and there was only one bathroom in the whole hostel. Overall it was very basic and I would not recomend to anyone. Location good

We have four bathrooms in the hostel, all of them with shower, hot water 24 hours, and if you need a towel, you get one for free. Our "minimal" breakfast, that is included in our minimal price, includes coffee, tea, mate, korn flakes, milk, bread, butter and jam all of it unlimited. Maybe there are old blankets, but if you ask the staff to change them, there is no problem. If anyone reads our average comments, they'll find out this is all malicious lies.


My stay at this hostel was lovely. The staff were nice, the hostel was clean! The location was just right (close to the bus station, supermarkets etc and only a short distance to local attractions. The rooms were cosy, they even had heating! Bathrooms and kitchen were always clean, breakfast was modest as to be expected. Tours could be easily organised through this hostel, just a pity about the rain!


This is a proper authentic old school hostel. Close to the main square. There's nothing wrong with this hostel. Nice stay


Thank you for the kindest receptionist who helped me to find a dentist , much as gracias !


Super close to the bus stop, great kitchen and outdoor areas. Good vibe. Good value for the price.


Helpful manager, and absolutely lovely breakfast:) Very much a family-feel.


Great atmosphere, nice people! Breakfast is typical Argentinian.

I liked this place, when it is raining, there is a bit of a water on the ground due to bad drainage, staff were good. I met lots of nice people


Quite a tired hostel, there are nicer ones in close proximity.


great location, beds comfortable, good breakfast. internet unreliable though and you cannot get good signal everywhere. also kitchen small for the number of people accommodated.


We really enjoyed our stay at this hostel. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Never a shortage of hot water! The atmosphere is great, we met some lovely people. The computers work well and the wifi is fine at the front of the property. The kitchen is missing a few utensils but that is not exactly a big problem! The bus station and town centre are a short walk away and the park is beautiful. Take the cable car to the top of the hill for a view over all of Salta..wow!!


Great hostel. Lovely staff and atmosphere. The lack of air conditioning makes it almost impossible to sleep at night. Extremely hot. Other than that- great.


This hostel is amazing. You are so friendly and helpful! Just a few things could be better: 1. Soap by the sinks in all the bathrooms -maybe towels too? 2. A locker for every bed in the dorms Thank you for a very nice stay at your hostel


great location. near to bus terminal. room a bit stuffy, we left the window open when we sleep. with the breeze from outside and the fan in the room, we have no problem sleeping. nevertheless, for the amount of money we pay for the 4-mixed dorm bed, it is value for money.


Withing great walking distance of the bus station. Not located in the downtown area, but within a walking distance. Not a party hostel, but friendly and chill atmosphere. Partners with great tour company. Helpful staff.


I really loved this hostel. All questions are answered immediately and if you need help you'll get it. Beds and breakfast are good. Perfect location in between bus terminal and city centre. You'll love it too.


Nice hostel. Nö air condotion
