We booked a private room with en suite and we're given a fully contained unit that could easily sleep a large group all to ourselves so that was great. Breakfast is great. Bread/ toast, cereal and eggs that you are free to cook your own way. Areas could do with a big clean up every now and then. Great staff that are always around.

Facility run down so doesnt feel clean. Very old shaky metal bunks! Staff helpful Bedside lights lockers in dorms Wafer thin pillows, Build solid wood bunkbeds with room underneath for backpacks. Invest in new pillows Buy more towels sp you can give them out at check in Improve the breakfast with brown bread, eggs, fruit, real fruit juice, butter. Have a quiet time from 11pm to 8am this includes the breakfast morning staff who have very loud voices.

Potential to be a really good hostel. Excellent atmosphere - one or two staff members who have the attitude to try to make it work for you. Unfortunately we also experienced one staff member who cooked in the common area, taking up all the space and failing to wash up afterwards. Also he had little interest in helping the people staying there. All in all, a good stay but it would have been much better if they knew about the area. Also, parties often happen til late, so bear this in mind!

Very nice and helpful staff. Nice common area and good breakfast (includes even eggs and cereals). Rooms are basic but clean and bright. Location is awesome, right in the centre with a market, shops and supermarkets being close by

We had the 'supersuite' room but actually it was not very clean.. it needed a profound cleaning service.. instead it seemed they just change the sheets and clean the bathroom..! Also the common spaces are not very clean. Btw, nice staff and helpfull and complete list of services!

Gal is a gem. A very much up front buisness man who runs a cool operation. He seems to be able to partake in three or four converations and questions at the same time in a variety of languages and not miss a beat......................

Staff were friendly and helped out with all enquiries and even took us out to the club. Hostel however is pretty small and furniture in communal area wasn't that great. Not a great atmosphere. Overall good value for money though.

I had a great time in this hostel. The staff was very helpful, friendly and made my stay to one of the best I had till now in Argentina. Especially Juliana and Valel are very nice and have a smile the whole day. Everybody who is searching for a hostel in a quiet, but central place with BBQ Evenings, Tours, nice staff is here right. I recommend it . both thumbs up from me!!!

I´ve really enjoyed the tipical argentinian Barbecue with a wine on a friday night, and after, free entrance to the night club next door. The place is very well located and the house is really big and antique. Saludos to Gal (the owner) and all the Excellent Staff.

I loved this hostel, the room was great and good value. There was a really friendly feel about the place and this was partly due to the owner who is an exceptional host. He seemed to work around the clock and was always on hand for recommendations of things to do, places to eat, bus routes etc. Another benefit was eggs for breakfast which could be cooked up in whatever style you wanted them. This is one of my favourite hostels of my trip so far.

Upon arrival we were basically given an entire apartment just for the two of us, so that was nice. Not particularly clean though, and atmosphere in common áreas was lousy; people wouldnt even say hello. Breakfast was ok, location is great.

Pretty good hostel , really nice location too.. Helpful staff and clean too .. Only two things which were a let down and one was actually a pain in the bum ..:) 1- wifi is a hit n a miss .. Comes n goes 2- it will be so nice if they didn't provide sandpaper as toilet paper :) It's a bit rough for the soft parts !!! Apart from that .. All good

Really friendly hostel which was very relaxed about letting you treat it as your own. I was welcomed to breakfast when I showed up before check'in and the staff were really helpful in helping me organise a day trip from Cordoba. Great location, nice rooms, and hot showers.

i dont understand why I can not join a dormitory as a single traveller. I had to rent a double room and pay for all of the room not just for the cama. In other hostals this was never the case.

Sorry but is your mistake not ours, you could have say that you want to change to dormitory and we could have move you. Since you reserve a twin room for yourself of course you charge for the room, if you want dormitory next time reserve a dormitory and not private room.
