Impressed by the cleanliness of the hostel and helpfulness of staff. Good walking tours to orientate myself to the city and to meet people.

Its one of the best hostels I have stayed at all over the world and definitely the best in South America. The rooms and facilities where of a hotel standard and the common areas are fantastic. The BBQ on Friday night was a fantastic feed and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

excellent hostel, this hostel is clean, modern, safe, comparable to modern places like Milhouse but has friendlier and more helpful staff and has WiFi albeit intermittent in the rooms. the hostel is still quite social but does not always party 24/7 which is a good thing! The location is a little further south than the main Centre but walking distances to major attractions and places of interest is not a problem. san Telmo is a nice area anyway. had lots of fun there, the staff are awesome!!!!

The staff were very welcoming and helpful in America del Sur. I also did a walking tour and our guide was lovely. As the hostel is big, it is sometimes hard to meet other travellers, however, the walking tours do help. Rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is very good.

I don't think I've ever met more helpful staff. They were so friendly and helpful, even looking up information to help with my application for a Brazilian visa. The hostel is more like a hotel, so it lacks charm, but I had a very nice stay.

Really helpful front desk and staff. Nice TV room and computers downstairs, has drinks available for purchase. A supermarket is directly opposite the front door. Nice place, just the atmosphere wasn't great, probably because most of the party people were in Brazil for the world cup at the time!

Great hostel in a cool area (San Telmo) not the most central but near the amazing sunday market and 5 min walk from a Subte station. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff! The vibe is great for those looking to avoid the intense party atmosphere/only socialising with other travellers vibe of Milhouse, but still easy to meet people with a relaxed free breakfast. Crowd definitely 21-30 as opposed to gap year. Comfy rooms with a modern chain-hotel feel to them. I'd recommend this place!

The staff there was really awesome, giving us fundamental tips how to embrace ourselfs in adventures in buenos aires, always receptive. The room that we stayed maybe have some licking issues, but they are really good, warm and has the best shower ever.

Too noisy after 1 am due to structure and layout of rooms in the hostel. Staff very friendly and spoke good English! Not worth the rate charged per single room as its the same cost as a 4 star hotel downtown!!

Great hostel located in the San Telmo area of Buenos Aires. The facilities were clean and proper, breakfast included, decent price, and the staff was incredibly helpful for everything. The common areas are spacious and welcoming for good conversation. I couldn't ask for any more from a hostel.

Staff are extremely helpful. Very nice hostel with great atmosphere. Not too loud but not boring. Breakfast included and 10% discount in their El Caladate hostel if you book through them. If you're in Buenos Aires make sure to go to La Bamba del Tiempo on a monday night. It's a drymming show and it's so much fun!

This hostel is well located near a lot of bars and restaurants, it is very clean, it offers dissent free breakfast and organizes a lot of activities. Girls working at the front desk are very professional and kind. Only negative thing would be very tall and narrow bunk beds. Overall this is a good place for the money you pay and I would stay here again.

Everything is great here. Modern facilities, almost like a hotel if you do not share the room. Close to sight seing places. I would stay here again. One thing to note is that the sink in the room, your fellow travellers could see you brushing your teeth lol That does not bother me though.

What a place! Elevators, hotel-style accommodation, wonderful helpful staff, good breakfast, nice social area downstairs for WC games and using the computer. And not a party hostel. This is a close to perfection for a hostel as it gets.

A good hostel with helpful and friendly staff. This Location is great for the San Telmo bars and awesome parrillas nearby. One thing can I suggest that simple details such as toilet door locks and shower heads should be repaired this is basic stuff. Also the internet reception is very intermittent on the ground level, the basement common room seems the only reliable area. Other than that, perfect, thank you!
