Very good hostel, great value for money, I definitely recommend!


It is the best hostel I have ever stayed in.


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.


Good hostel.


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 location, good wifi, helpful staff.


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.


Large hostel, good breakfast, clean rooms. Some staff were knowledgable and helpful others not so much. good location.
