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

Breakfast was ridiculous, there wasn't toilet paper and much noise early in the morning as there'someone having breakfast. I don't recommand you this hostel, even it's really neat to the city center.

Had a great stay here. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice environment, very comfortable. Good access to the shopping area and a short walk to new cordoba for bars and restaurants. Would recommend to all


We stayed in this hostel with three friends and we really enjoyed it. The hostel was clean and the service was really good. We got good help from the desk in regards to our questions about what there was to do. The staff was very friendly! The atmosphere in the hostel was very nice! Also the roof terrace was nice. We stayed here for a few days and we had a very good time! Would definitively recommend it!

Alvear in Cordobá is definitely to recommend! First of all, it is a beatiful location, big living/chilling areas, room (we had a 4 dorm) was big enough, every one had a locker incl. locks! It was clean and well organised. Kitchen we can not judge but made a good impression. There are at least two rooms on the street side and as in every city in a center located hostel...there can be some traffic;). There are more rooms more in the back. In a nutshell: book it, you for sure make a good choice!


Nice enough hostel. It was very quiet when we were there. There was also some people staying there long term with children. Everyone was nice though. Cool roof garden with a bbq. Kitchen was ok. No complaints really. The hostel was beautiful inside. Good wifi. Let us sit about all day on our check-out day as we had a bus late that evening; which was very helpful.


This hostel is overrated. The PC internet connection was down and no attempt was made to fix it. We left a meal in the fridge for our lunch which was thrown out without any warning, no sign to say food would be chucked. The receptionist regularly left the desk to smoke meaning we could not get let out. Breakfast had dry toasts not even fresh bread - worst in 8 weeks. Toilet bins unemptied while floors washed excessively Location is its only plus point but there are plenty others centrally.
