Backpackers Salta was recommended to me by a friend in Buenos Aires...the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the facilities and rooms are generally good/clean. The showers are hot but the breakfast is just bread and drinks...not the best. Cooked a good dinner for us all every night and the fellow people staying made the atmosphere much better. All round a good place but if you want a busier atmosphere maybe try Backpackers Suites Salta.
The wardrobe was poor, had nos shelves or space for clothes. Bathroom os tiny and few light. Kitchen is small for 3 people cooking at the same time. Outside park is great. Wi fi and computer are slow.
Nice and cheap. Some staff were excellent (notable mention to Alejandra on reception) - most helpful and friendly. Other staff seemed somewhat disinterested. It was pretty quiet when I was there, so didn't meet too many people, so the atmosphere was a little flat. Travel agency attached to the hostel was handy, but I had a minor disagreement with them when a day-tour was aborted midway thru due to weather. Minor quibble.
The best part are the towels, big and fresh.. and the staff are reasonably friendly, thats about it. Just a typical party (noisy) hostel. Long walk from the centre with not much around it, no shops nearby. We'd stayed at a better hostel but had to unfortunately change due to availability. Funniest is a sign saying they serve the best breakfast.. Nope, just bread and coffee/tea and sugary juice. Could say a few more complaints... Meh.
The location is a bit of a walk from the main plaza, but it's a great place to meet other backpackers. Breakfast is nothing to write home about.
Really good hostel. Lovely and friendly staff who were willing to help at any hour of the day. Really enjoyed staying here. Would definately recommend to anyone travelling to Salta.

The staff was actually weird.. the guy that welcomed us after 2 hours did not remember that we were waiting for the room, and the women at breakfast one morning told us that they would have washed the mugs and the they after they told the opposite! the bathroom was very old and the dorms on the groundfloor a bit dark; the swimming pool had no water; btw, the nice idea is to organize dinners in the garden!
