We stayed 3 nights in the hostel and we enjoyed every second of it. It has a great location right in the middle of the main street in the city. The owners and the staff members are very nice and kind and they were always happy to help in any case we needed. Highly recommended !


Really enjoyed my stay here! Staff was really friendly and helpful. They have a nice common area that has AC and a fantastic rooftop! Only downside was cold showers. I would definitely stay again though.


Baluch Backpackers Hostel is an excellent hostel, the best that I've ever stayed at! The staff are brilliant!! They are all very friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful. They made me feel very welcome. The rooms are immaculate. The beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are sparkling clean. It has a great atmosphere, with regular parties. I loved staying at Baluch and I will definitely be back!! Thank you to all staff at Baluch for an awesome stay

Top notch hostel run by 3 cool guys who go out of their way to make your stay... eventful. There's friendly and relaxed atmosphere about the place. Guests and locals gather on the terrace most evenings to party before hitting the clubs so you have the chance to meet local students and practice your Spanish, etc... If its R


Great location (5 minute walk to central plaza). The staff are great -friendly and helpful, and there's a good atmosphere in the hostel. The hostel is clean, and there are lockers in the rooms. The rooftop terrace is great (though the pool is just a small plastic tub). Wifi was a bit unreliable, but when it works it's very fast. The four-person rooms are very small. Bathrooms are clean but very small. Top bunk of bed was very shaky. Breakfast is very light, but eggs provided if you want to cook.


Nice terrace upstairs ! The area is cool during the day time and alive but a bit far from all the good bars and clubs. But cab is not that expensive. The staff is cool and the hostel ok.


A mixed experience here. Location is great, staff friendly, breakfast ok (although no vegemite as advertised :() and bathrooms were pretty clean. Wifi was a bit hit and miss during our stay. Main issue was the location of the private rooms, right next to the roof terrace (a great space by the way) where there was partying and blaring music each night until 3am. It was like the speakers were in our room, and sleep was impossible. We aren't bothered by a bit of noise, but this was unbearable!


Nice hostel, but the breakfast is not as good as avertised ("best breakfast in town" - I doubt it, it's only bred, jam and Nescafe), nor is the so-called pool (it's not an actual pool, it's rather a small plastic thing). Also, the hostel advertises at the reception that they book buses for you, which they actually don't (and just keep advertising it despite it's inaccurate). the beds are old and not very comfy. Besides these shortcomings, it's still a good place and I'd go there again.


we don't recommend this hostel. we found it dirty and messy


The hostel plays LOUD music until very late at night. Mi first night the music went until 4 am. Other nights until 3 am (INCLUDING WEEKDAYS). Hardly slept at all due to all the noise.


Good mix of relaxing and party atmosphere. Staff are friendly and helpful. Cleaner is hilarious.


Nice staff, good lockers in the room. Not that much common area inside, nice roof terrace but it gets really hot. Small kitchen, almost nothing for breakfast. Room next to the reception, so a little bit noisy.


Run by an Australian and a local, the hostel has got great vibes and attracts an international, well-travelled crowd. The crew regularly organizes events, such as amazing rooftop azados and get-togethers that also exert a great pull on the Cordoba student community. If you are looking for a fun and friendly place, Baluch is the place to be. Very much enjoyed my stay there.


It was very loud during the night, impossible to sleep. I came the for the weekend - Monday it was better. If you like to have party, you should go to this hostel. If you like to sleep, better think of other options. Stuff really very, very nice and helpful.


Great stuff,Sabrina is lovely!


really enjoyed staying in Baluch hostel. friendly staff and provide helpful information about cordoba. Wifi works great and location is awesome as well. highly recommand this hostel in Cordoba. Enjoy Cordoba


Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice hostel.


Very nice hostel you should definitely go there, they have from everything including all the information you want, helping staff, kitchen, breakfast till noon, 2 computers, tv, nice balconies, placed well, good Asado, nice rooftop.. Have fun:)


Really enjoyed the atmosphere in the hostel had planned on staying 3 nights but stayed for 6. The facilities are great the beds are some of the best, the roof top is a great place to hang out or cook an asado with your friends, cool events like language swap nights allow you to meet locals and get an insight into what is a great city, also a lot to do just out side of the town (we spent a lazy day by the lake).


An inexpensive hostel for a private room, well located and with many common areas, morning staff very helpful. Clenliness average, kitchen could of been better equipped, breakfast basics and no vegimite as stated, private room located near terrace where guests and people from outside the hostel were able to party till 3am.
