Pro's, Good location, very helpful staff, good wifi, nice roof terrace area to chill out Con's Tiny kitchen so if you want to cook its very difficult. Big hostel so bathrooms are used heavily at peak times and can get pretty messy (despite regular cleaning from hostel staff


Good vibes, friendly staff. Not the quietest but lots of fun activities and bar on the roof.

Well its a party hostel and its really big. If you re NOT looking for decent sleep but for people to party, you might like the place.


Awesome place with really funky graffiti all over the walls. The bar was a good place to meet people and the staff are all knowledgeable and helpful. We stayed in the private room and it was big enough to spread out a bit. Ugi's (pizza) was the best recommendation for cheap food ever. Would defiantly recommend.


If you are backpacking traveling, Good enough. Is not so well located since there are a lot more hostels closer to center or Obelisc.


We stayed for one night at the Art Factory and would recommend it. Helpful staff, great location and good value for money.


It was ok....the location was good...walking distance to tourist areas and the security to get in the buiding was great but our dorm door wouldn't lock. The ladies toilets broke down. I felt the place needed some maintenance, and brightening up both in facilities and staff.


I loved staying here. Great atmosphere, but also quiet and chilled out. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful.
