nice enough, no real atmosphere, kitchen was small and dirty.


Stayed here for a week, loved the place! Matt and Jorge are great guys, very friendly and have plenty of good recommendations. Jorges weekly asado is a must. Will recommend anyone coming to BA to stay here!


Very good location. Staff helps with everything you need.


Lovely hostel! Good vibes and nice chill areas. Great kitchen so could do lots of cooking while we were there. Just everything you want in a hostel, Gracias!!


A good hostel in a good location. The staff were nice and helpful. The only issue was we were in room 5 and it was very hot.


Private room 4 was not fit for letting. Curtain was very dirty & when you examined pillows they were disguisting.Staff were friendly when they engagwd with you but they were more concerned in doing their own work on the computer. There were little or no glasses in the bar. The showers and breakfast were ok.

I'm really sorry to hear this guest didn't have a great time with us. Most of our guests love our staff, our location and our hostel! By the time you read this, all beds and rooms with have new pillows - they were due to be delivered in November but there was a delay. The curtain in that room will also be sent for cleaning and glasses bought. I would encourage any guest who has an issue while staying with us to come talk to us at the time; we'll do our best to fix it!!


The hostel is perfectly located in Palermo Viejo which is the best neighbourhood for bars/clubs and also has some really great boutiques and beautiful streets. The hostel itself is ok. The staff were helpful and friendly but the furnishings are looking a little tired and there was no air-conditioning. I was particularly disappointed that the hostel didn't organise anything for Christmas despite me staying on 24th and 25th December.
