The room was clean and fun but the kitchen was already very durty, it was the same for the bathroom --> durty but it isn t the false of the personnel but of the client ... The room was cleaning ! Our room was at the first, just the stairs and we couldńt sleep with te other Who did a party ! And i think if You sleep at bar floor You gave to do party . The positif, the décoration was really great and location was good.


As our first hostel on our South American adventure it was a great place to get a feel for Buenos Aires. Helpful staff and a lot of events and hostel gatherings to help get to know the city and other people at the hostel. The art work is amazing!


Everything was perfect. Staff pleasant and extremely helpful


The staff was very helpful an oasis of English speaking people. The location looks ghetto with graffiti every where but that is the city in a nut shell. I seamed safe with single women walking the street in the dark seemingly without fear. But that is more comment on t the city than the Art Factory.

Excellent hostel: friendly staff, lovely decor and clean. Although the breakfast provision is exceptionally good, the kitchen facilities for making your own food are terrible. It would be a perfect hostel if the kitchen was better equipped and a little more spacious.


Very friendly staff, nice terrace, well located!

Awesome hostel! Covered in some unreal street art by artists from around the world! Really adds character to the place! Right across the street is a fruit and veggie market and a laundry facility - very convienant! The only down fall was some of the staff were not overly friendly or interested in helping us. But I would still stay here again!

Art Factory is definitely a hostel I´d recommend. It´s well worth the 90 pesos a dorm costs per night. The staff - especially Adrian - is really nice and helpful. Breakfast is awesome and the location is so good. Close to subway, bus and walking distance to a lot of cool places in BA. Not the average party hostel, but it´s got a cool vibe and some pretty amazing artwork all over the hostel. Would definitely stay here again!
