Had a good time at this hostel. The tour to Cachi definitely is one of my worldwide highlights. It has a kitchen but the there is good cheap (for Argentina) street food just one block away. Beds and bathrooms are kept nice and clean. The staff allowed me to check in early got an overnight bus from Cordoba so not having to wait around was a positive. Security is not so good (no keys for dorm rooms) but the lockers are big enough to store your backpack securely. Would definitely stay again


Really nice place to chill out! Big garden out the back! Rooms are clean if just a little small! Kitchen is well equipped and loads of room! Breakfast is decent; cereal, bread, Jams with tea and coffee! wifi decent!


Chilled atmosphere and nice garden, decent but very basic hostel. There are lots of mosquitos in the rooms by the garden as there's no aircon, the beds aren't amazing but ok and the breakfast is just bread and butter. The showers are the best thing as they have very hot water. Good for a short stay.


It is walking distance from bus terminal. Big park is nearby. Small garden behind the hostel is good to chill out in the evening. Toilets are always seem to be occupied. There is only two plug sockets in the room. It will be good to have more plug sockets to charge electrical devices.


Proximity to the town centre isn't great, but it's fairly close to the bus station which is what I wanted.


Fantastic location, the ladies on reception were super helpful and the place was clean and tidy. Great outdoor areas to chill and have a few drinks. They serve coffee in the morning which is great. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a relaxing place in amongst the craziness of Salta.

A lovely hostel with a large kitchen and two cozy outdoor areas, which are great places to hang out and meet fellow travelers. The hostel is constantly being cleaned and is thus up to high cleanliness standards. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful but spoke little English. Located a 10-15 minute walk from the central square and bus station, and around the corner from a large supermarket. The only thing that was missing was a nice indoor area to relax in if it rains.


It's 15 min to the center and 5 min to the terminal. Salta city center doesnt have a lots of attractions, everything is around the city so be close to the terminal is better option. Staff is excellent. They helped us for our future trips. We had a problem with the bus we arrived there next day and they didn't change us for the day we lost. When we arrived they let us have a breakfast and had early Check in. After Check out they let us use showers and kitchen also. Definitely recommended!


Nice hostel. Very chill and laid back. Staff were nice, kitchen is great but can get crowded quickly if more than 2-3 cooking. Location is fine, supermarket nearby and easy 10 min walk to main square and bus terminal. Rooms were hot and only one fan that really didn't help much. Would recommend and would stay there again.


This is a great hostel! Owners are nice, everything is clean and location is great. I'd booked three nights but decided to go on a roadtrip after one night. Without any arguing at all, the owners let me go on the roadtrip and move my two extra nights to after coming back. Definitely worth a stay!


Great hostel. Friendly, caring staff. Relaxed spot


Staff is friendly and knowledgable, will go out of their way to help you plan adventures but don't try to sell you anything. The hostel has lots of chill, open communal space, creating a positive vibe conducive to meeting other travelers. Near the bus station, ten minutes walk from the plaza, around the corner from the supermarket.


Really cosy hostel! Nice atmosphere for meeting new people!


It was love on the second sight. It looks a bit rough in the first moment, but as soon you unpack your stuff and get to know the staff it´s actually pretty good. Breakfast at 6.30am was really cool as all the tours start at 7am. Nice garden to have a drink or two if all the guys come back from their tours. Close to the station and the city. Big thank you to Sylvia, Jose and the new guy! :)


We wanted a quick and cheap stay and we got it. Beds were comfortable enough but a bit small, like most beds in argentinean hostels. There's no airco, only fans on the ceiling. Bathrooms were very basic.


Really nice hostel - quiet, close to the bus, good breakfast. They give you towels too, which I like. The staff recommended some really good restaurants. Also, I met some good people here. Enjoyed my stay and would certainly return!


Great hostel ideally located. Stayed two nights. Nice communal kitchen where you meet new people. Staff were excellent.


Good: The staff was very helpful and friendly. The hostel was cleaned regularly, it was obviously a priority and was very nice to see that. The back patio/grill area was great to hang out in, whether grilling on the asado or just relaxing in the enclosed patio/TV area. Good atmosphere. Bad: The only bad things were the beds. The pillows were very thin, way too thin. We stayed in two different rooms and in both rooms the beds were very creaky/noisy. The smallest movement produced a loud so


Walkable to both bus station and main square so it was nice to not pay for taxis. Comfy beds, big lockers, hot showers. Wifi in common rooms as far as we could tell. Breakfast was typical Argentina bread buffet and some cereal, do your own dishes. Nice outside areas and little sauna type area.


I stayed there just for one night. It was perfect because it's just 5 minutes walk to the busterminal. Nice rooms and great kitchen. Very nice staff that booked a bus ticket for me.
