Located within walking distance of a nimber of the main areas this hostel was fine for our short stay in Buenos Aires. We had room keys and lockers and the main hostel door is opened by staff so the place was really secure. There is a supermarket nearby though the kitchen was dirty so expect to wash everything before you use it. Good common areas though.


We were treated well and very much enjoyed our stay. Many thanks!


Helpful staff, nice hostel, kitchen a bit basic and not sooo very well equipped, but all essentials there.

Great location a few blocks from some of Cordoba's main sights, but this place really lacks atmosphere, which is odd as it has large communal spaces, including a roof deck and a pool table. Not great in terms of cleanliness - the bathrooms always seemed to have dirty water on the floor - and the kitchen really could do with more plates, cutlery, pans etc. Fine for a night or two, but nothing longer than that.


Great hostel and staff, but what was that framed portrait of Muhammad Ali glowering over Sonny Liston doing on the wall? I've only been beaten up once in my life but it's not something I care to remember. I didn't appreciate seeing that image before going to sleep and the first thing in the morning! Otherwise, great hostel.


We booked for 3 nights, stayed for 6 in the end. Excellent location, friendly staff. And a awesome rooftop terrace! Highly recommend


Hostel with Central Location in Cordoba. Stayed one Night in Way from Mendoza to Buenos Aires. Could check in early, but the booked bathroom ensuite the 4 bed dorm was also shared with the 6 bed dorm next door. No problem as hostel was quite empty. Kitchen could need a refurbishment, had to put a kettle on the stove for every Cup of tea. Breakfast Basic, roof terrace nice.


Altough the staff is supersweet, the place itself is not. Breakfast is horrible and the loungesection not very comfy. Due to high ceilings very noisy. Perhaps summer on the terrace is great but in winter it is empty boring and cold
