Staff was very friendly, especially the guy who is at the reception in the morning (I didn't ask his name). Breakfast is fine and the whole hostel was very clean. Very comfy and clean beds and hot showers. If your room isnt the one close to the bar, you'll have a good night of sleep, otherwise, get ready for all the noise that comes from the bar. The kitchen is very small considering how big the hostel is. There werent enough pans and plates for everybody to cook. But I'd stay with them again


Good hostel in a good location. Breakfast was pretty good too.


This is a great hostel, good location, nice staff and I met some really cool people there. The only thing that caused me bother was the toilet situation: there is 1 large bathroom on the 1st floor and some other cubicles. Luckily, I never had to use the cubicles, as the big bathroom was always available, but I imagine your stuff would get soaked if you tried to take a shower in them. Also toilets were really cramped, kinda dirty too. No big complaints, I enjoyed the hostel and had a great time!


Awesome hostel, in the wonderful San Telmo neighborhood (imo a much better area to stay than El Centro or Recoleta) Beautiful and spacious old building, nice beds and super friendly staff. They serve eggs with breakfast if you ask. Staff puts on a lot of good events, and there is a great rooftop terrace to chill on. Fantastic atmosphere, would definitely stay again.


we stayed in the double room with the cow painting and it was very damp and smelled alot, the shower was held together by a plastic bag!!!! the room was very big and was fine other then the damp. You had a small heater which helped as its a big old building and gets cold at night. The staff were lovely, the bar was nice and had a good vibe and you could not hear the noise although other guests arriving home was extremely noisy it echo somethinh on every night and you could not hear the noise
