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!


The advantage is the pool and the staff. It was a good hostel a couple of years ago but it is pretty dirty. If you don't mind like us, you'll say it's ok but you could do better.


Too much far avay from city center and Terminal bus. Staff gangster. The bed room was occupied due to it was booked for a hald day by another customer..! I waited during several hours in the reception where in addition it was a big mess due a lot of check out of other customers from Israel also unsatisfied !! Police was called and came to this hostel etc etc.. The kitchen was really repugnant.




very nice hostel, staff very helpful. had a great party in the bar but i never made breakfast once!


Takes a little walk from the hostel to the city center. Nice staff, kept it really clean but can really use new paint etc. Does not really look great anymore. Nice tours amd rooms. But showering with a total wet bathroom is not really my thing. And we also had only one charge point in our room..


This is a good hostel but it's main issues are lack of decent fans in the rooms and its location. The staff are nice and it has a great pool / bar area. The bathroom could definitely have been cleaner though.


this hostel was recommended by some friends of mine and i really have to say IT'S worth it to stay at backpackers hostel they offer every night menues for dinner, which are delicious, the rooms are very clean and the hostel is a place 'home away from home'. especially the staff is very very friendly and helpfull!!! the perfect place to relax, explore the city, book activities and especially meet new people. i'm 100% satisfied with this comfy hostel. miri (germany)


Lively, friendly hostel with good facilities. We moved here from another hostel in Salta and were very glad we did. Only downside was the bathrooms, which were very basic and limited. One shower had a glass door opening directly onto a courtyard where people were sitting - it didn´t feel very private! Garden, living room, bar, and pool area great to sit and relax in. It was a bit of a walk to get into town, but only 15 minutes or so. Limited power sockets in the bedrooms.
