Perfect location, staff very helpful, rooms very nice and kitchen was great.


The guests were definitely male dominated when we went, but security was good so I wasn't that worried about it. the male staff dude was also really helpful about telling us stuff to do and just being a generally friendly dude. Overall, while it isn't the cheapest in south america standards, Caballo loco was probably one of the nicer hostels I have stayed at. It was really clean, and had a beautiful mural of a indigenous man smoking a pipe and the smoke turning into a horse. Def recommend

Great Hostel! Owners and staff are fantastic. Common room is huge and great for meeting others. Location is awesome as well.


Overall a good place to stay. We were only there for two nights but had everything required with nice open communal area and helpful staff. Met some great people. The only real gripe was the low number of showers/toilets for, at times, quite a number of people staying there, plus being a little cold at times though we were in winter. Staff helped us out booking onward buses which was great, good breakfast and kitchen facilities.


What a fantastic hostel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. And the atmosphere of the hostel was great. It's set up in a way that makes it easy meet fellow travelers and make new friends. Thanks for a great experience!


The caballo loco was great!! The staff was so helpful with ideas of where to go and what to do, and they spoke excellent English (convenient for me since my Spanish is so-so). It felt very safe and the breakfast was plentiful

Beautiful building with wonderful facilities. The two guys that work there are also great and helpful!


Male staff very friendly, female not so much. Good position (next to plaza cagancha) and clean dorm rooms. Atmosphere wasn't fantastic, the hostel mostly seemed empty.
