Dirty, noisy and staff not so friendly, as said. There is certainly better hostels in BA.
The staff here were the best - we stayed here again on our return to BA. Great location and excellent info to explore the city. Rooms were good size and clean etc. The private bathroom wasn't great though - preferred sharing the better one. Breakfast pretty good - they'll even cook you eggs so it's not just bread.
It is located in San Telmo which is perfect as you can get everywhere. We were there at Winter time and the hostel was quite quiet. It wasn't easy getting in touch with others- especially Latin American people preferred spending time with each other. High season starts in September. The hostel itself offers many opportunities (BBQ, free city tour,pub crawl... etc) which are fun. The kitchen isn't well equipped. Breakfast was ok. (juice,bread,jelly,coffee,tea,scrambled eggs,cornflakes)
Amazing staff! Everybody was so nice and so helpful, they all recommended the best and coolest activities.
The good- great breakfast (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, juice) with scrambled egg and you just need to ask the kitchen staff. Nice and quiet but provides activities upstairs like BBQ, tango lessons etc. The only thing I didn't like very much was the staff, I asked them a few questions like the ferry to Uruguay etc and I feel like the staff aren't informative enough because I had a few problems with the website and the area where the hostel is, they don't know much like cost of laundry etc.
