High quality hostel but very big so not socially conducive to great mingling! Vast range of ages for sure. Decent breakfast. Quite helpful staff. The 'free walk about tour' is not free but still worth it!

The Internet was not working for three days while we had our stay. It kept going in and out, but mostly out. There were a few rude workers at the front. When we asked for a taxi to the port, the front desk did not tell us or the driver the address and we ended up going to the wrong location and almost missing our boat. Also they bought the wrong tickets for our boat ride cutting into our time in Colonia from 6 hours to 3.5 hours. There was a mystery bug in our dorm mates bed while he was sleepin

Great hostel, would definitely recommend. Good location in san telmo, really helpful & friendly staff, and a great place to meet people. Rooms, bathrooms & common areas always clean. Great chill out couch downstairs. Kitchen a bit old. It's a little loud at night but it's a hostel!

Very clean, friendly staff, lots of activities for travellers. The neighborhood could be a bit sketch at night but security was good. The Bambi market out front sells wine for the equivalent of 2-3 USD!!!! The parilla around the corner is good too!

Pretty good hostel, but a little bland and homogenous. I'm sure there are cheaper more interesting hostels in BA.

Nice enough hostel, in a good location, staff could do with having more knowledge, communal areas not that comfortable.

Good hostel with good facilities. Key cards for 4 bed dorms and full backpack sized lockers. Great ensuite bathroom/shower. Good, busy social atmosphere. Breakfast could have been better (cereal, bread/toast and spreads - no fruit, eggs etc.) given the high price.

The staff is great, they enjoy working there and it shows. I had to leave because they were booked (my fault for not booking a longer stay in advance) but they still let me sign up for tours while I was staying in an apartment. Great vibe, highly recommend.

Cool atmosphere in the hostel really sociable. The dorms are spacious and clean. Toilet and shower are separate in the rooms which is good and they are really clean. Great to have such a big mirror and a hairdryer! Drinks in the hostel are expensive but you can take your own in. Nice big sofa and chill out area in the basement. Staff were really nice and helpful. Breakfast was good! Kitchen was a bit grubby and only one oven worked. Had a great welcome and goodbye by Pedro and Leon.

This was the best hostel I´ve stayed in in my nine months of traveling. All the staff were fantastic and went way beyond what they needed to do to make sure you were having a great stay. Nico was extremely helpful to us and recomended some fantastic places we would never have found on our own, he really made an effort to help us with everything we needed. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. Thanks America Del Sur!

Such a great hostel. Couldn't have found a better fit and met better people. We created a close knit group and remained together even when someone of us had left the hostel. Facilities are great - something to do/see/try each day. BBQ on Friday!!! Love the back-patio to sit and hang with new friends. Thanks all.

Theo straff are very helpful and the dorms are clean and have a shower each. The hostel is located quite close to the historic district of San Telmo. Had a great stay!

Joining the club of those raving about this hostel - it is fantastic! Firstly, the staff are super friendly and helpful - I got robbed just before arriving at the hostel and was visibly shaken up, they looked after me and offered to help with the police and translation (thank you so much!). The activities were great too and the atmosphere was fantastic - I met so many people out in their garden, just chilling - excellent! The rooms were a bit of a luxury too, I would definitely recommend!

The staff were so helpful (apart from when they misbooked our bus tickets for the wrong day) and friendly. The breakfast was decent, a good selection of cereal, juices, coffee and toast. The hostel was very clean with the extra bonus of staff making our beds each day. I would highly recommend this hostel!
