Booked for one night in 4bed dorm. Stayed for three. We did 2tours while here&breakfast from 6am is a major plus. It's only bread but very welcome at that hour. Place is in serious need of a lick of paint perhaps a full renovation as mentioned in other reviews. Wifi works well in common areas. Had pizza here one night. It was nice and cheap. We enjoyed our stay here but we weren't in the hostel much of the time. Staff are friendly and helpful


We booked this hostel as it said it was 10 mins walking from the bus station and we were coming off a 18hr bus ride. It was much further then 10 mins and not very close to the center. Staff wasn't very friendly when we arrived. We passed so many hostels on the way to get to this one closer to the center. Wouldn't stay here again.


Good value for your money. Only one key per room so you have to leave the key to the receptionist every time you leave the room. The hostel was a 10-15 min walk to the main square. Breakfast wasn't very filling, but at least it's free (little pieces of baguette, butter and jam). Apart from that, the staff was friendly, the kitchen was well equipped, the pool is great, there's a huge backyard and a bar. They also organize cool activities for the guests (BBQ, parties).


Pleasant stay, rooms were fine with hot water showers but not very sound proof. Reception was helpful and gives a nap but was disappointed that there was no one there when checking out (early morning, but was assured there would be someone there).


the hostel was an old building, nedds a good paintwork, no air conditioner (it was necessary, in january it is really hot in salta) kitchen was dirty, my bathroom had spider webs on the roof, the shower and the bathroom pipes did not have any water on the last two days of our stay. 9 blocks away from the city centre. i would not mind paying a little more, but recieve a better service. i would NOT reccomend at all this hostel.

The hostel is not really central but the location is ok; we enjoyed a lot the nights in the comunal area (they do barbecues,pizza,pastas at really cheap prices). Nice to met people and have fun! the bathrooms and rooms are not really good cause the hostel is a little bit old and not renovated. I recommend it for the ambient but if you want excellent facilities and rooms maybe is not the right place!
