Very nice location. All dependencies very clean. Good breakfast. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The common areas provides a good place to the interaction between the travelers. Only a suggestion to increase the security, is to include some kind of identification tag for luggage that the travelers usually keep at the "luggage storage room", when arrives before the check in time and after the check out. Only to ensure that the travelers are taking only your own luggage.

This hostel was exactly what we needed during our stay in buenos aires. The hostel was extremely welcoming and the staff helpful. The place is very modern and well lit. Location is impeccable in the heart of San Telmo. Last but really not least, the shower was amazingly good - water came out in full force and was the perfect way to end every day.

Was staying for 3 nights. After the first night the electricity went down and also there were no water for more 24 hours. The manager was only able to offer 20% off even thought we couldn't use any of the promised facilities.

Hello Nofar!!!...I am so sorry for the problem with the electricity . Unfortunately it was out of our control ( it was an electriciyi supplier problem )...And we are even more so sorry because you couldn’t experience what really our hostel is, as you can also read in other reviews. I would love for you to come stay with us next time you come to Buenos Aires. So sorry again and hope to see you see you soon”

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen facilities were good as long as you didn't hit a busy period as it wasn't very big. Great TV room & access to Internet. Overall very happy with stay.

Overall good experience. Pros: friendly staff who helped me with logistics etc, clean building and rooms, location ok close to some of the sights. Cons: location in bit of a less than impressive neighborhood, limited food options within a few block radius

The staff here were incredible!! After my partner and I had our passports stolen the staff were so understanding and allowed us to stay in the same room for our entire 3 week stay. The facilities are awesome and breakfast is the best we have had in South America. I can't compliment the staff high enough.

Nice central location and walkable access to main sights, with great walking tours organised from the hostel. Staff were helpful, the kitchen was really good. Breakfast was standard and there was a surprising number of families and older couples. Had a relaxed atmosphere, but not far from more upbeat places!
