Beautiful building and well decorated. The rooms were clean - very comfortable bed. Can have scrambled eggs for breakfast too! Lovely terrace with and bar and hammocks. Staff not very engaging and when we arrived no one showed us around or even to our room. We overhead other guests beig told where to go in the city etc the atmosphere in the evenings was average. Staff didn't do much to get involved to ensure guests were having fun. Was quiet but maybe that's to do with guests at the time?

A decent hostel in san telmo district. Staff were friendly and patiently answered my noob questions about buenos aires. They were also knowledgeable about a walking tour that was cancelled suggesting a different one for me to do, people from another hostel weren't similarly informed. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, which was a nice touch, but otherwise fairly standard fare. Would recommend this plac, has a good hostel vibe going.

Great hostel, staff were really helpful and the terrace was a highlight. Get an A/C room, far too hot without

I'm in need of a manual wheelchair and traveling with a friend who is assisting me. The art factory hostel is not what you would call a wheelchair friendly location at all (i.e. many stairs, rooms and breakfast/bar on different levels). But the staff helped us in every possible way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

Overall the best hostel we've stayed in BsAs. Comfy beds, several chillout spaces good location and staff. Cons: kitchen is pretty basic and the breakfast lady wanted to leave at 11 and wouldn't let us finish our brekkie even tho the time is 8 to 11.The art at the hostel is pretty cool and the rooftop bar a winner!

Great atmosphere, great staff and great people in general. No matter at which time or what we wanted to know: at any time there was a friendly guy at the reception who had answers for everything - where to go out, where to buy something to eat, which bus we need to take,... -> great job! It's a pity that the terrace remains closed from 23h & some of the activities that are written on the board in the entrance can't be taking place no longer. But thumbs up for all the activites they still offer!

Great staff, especially the bartender). Nice common rooms, good breakfast (with eggs!). Rooftopterrace is very nice, paintings on the walls are amazing. Kitchen is tiny. Room without airco is killing. Bathrooms are not always clean, especially in mornings.

A pretty cool hostel. Nice communal areas. The bathrooms are a little small and can get messy due to their layout. The dorm room was also a little cramped and hot. Very friendly and helpful staff. More than willing to answer any and all questions. Had a really good time here.

Art factory has a great rooftop balcony/bar and common areas so its easy to meet people from everywhere, 24 hour reception, the staff are all great, friendly, helpful with what to do in BA. The breakfast is pretty good, its a standard cereal/toast/coffee with scrambled eggs. My dorm had air conditioning, lockers, comfy beds. Wifi is good but they also have 3 computers to use. The bathrooms are a bit on the rough side but they were always clean. Location is good in the heart of San Telmo
