If you are looking for fun, that's the hostel you should stay at! Great staff, good accommodations. Nice location (walkind distance from Puerto Madero), but there's an issue with cleanliness.

Although the location was good, the other aspects were quite disappointing. The hostel may be a very well known hostel in south america, however it didn't have basic conditions to have a good stay: 1) there were cockroachs, both in the public spaces and in the bedroom, 2) we couldn't buy any drinks in the hostel, except for beer and only before midnight, 3) we couldn't sit at the tables after midnight and 4) the staff was not helpful to give us tips about the city. Defintely I'd not recommend it

Old biodling, the dorm didnt have fan or aircon, VERY HOT at night, couldnt sleep. Kitchen was awful. Private room much better, but costs a lot more, obviously. Staff is nice and internet is ok.

Zero customer service. No air in the room, one fan in a room of 12 people. Cockroaches in the bathrooms, no electricity or running water for few days. Promised us a discount but that never happened. Manager was unavailable for the whole time. Shocked that a chain can have such a different kind of facilities and staff. Paraty and Florianópolis che lagartos were amazing.

staff were great, has lovely garden area shaded by a large tree canopy. Only downside had no lockers to charge laptop or phone, and the dorm room I had with ensuite also had a slight moldy smell to it. On Sundays also the area seems a little risky outside the hostel, you get the feeling to watch your back in the street as so few people around other than dodgy strangers loitering in the streets. However felt perfectly safe inside the hostel. Is more popular place with Chileans .

Our stay at Che Lagarto was amazing! If you are looking for a hostel which will allow you to meet people from all walks of life, this is the place for you. The breakfast was plentiful. And the evenings were full of fun with music, drinks and a very addictive game involving coins and a frogs mouth. Santiago made sure we had a wonderful time and we hope to return at the end of our trip around South America. All of the other receptionists were also nice and helpful. Thanks guys!

There were cockroaches everywhere. Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom... So gross. Breakfast was good. Wifi didn't work in room and didn't allow video or picture upload. A huge upset since the Che we stayed in Iticare was fantastic.

The hostel is in a great spot in San telmo and the staff are friendly. However some of the advice they gave wasn't always correct. We also had our food stolen regularly from the fridges during our stay.

do not expect something crazy(in terms of quality of the bed or shower), but the atmosphere is great and if you are not a high maintenance person this is the best you can get for your money I would think

Not much going on here, but ok if you want to get your head down. We stayed for one night and moved to Milhouse for a party! Breakfast was ok. Showers were great and hot. Wifi ok. Door to the balcony in the room wouldn't shut so had to wedge our bag against it.

I was a bit disappointed given this is a Che Lagarto. Some lockers did not worked or there were not enough so I had to use the ones on another floor. My bunkbed did not have a ladder and it was annoying getting to my bed, at least the bed was comfortable.The place looks run down. The staff was welcoming. Location is ok, close to the obelisk but not lively and a bit scary to walk alone that street at night. At least the place was clean. On the plus side they did offer cool activities

Good place but kitchen facilities were average. Hot water kettle didn't work. Staff members were amazing. They were really friendly and helpful. Location is about 10-15 minutes walk from the main terminal which I thought was bit far, but not sure if there are many hostel right next to the bus terminal. Breakfast was good but not the best: cereals, bread, fruits and cakes.

This hostel has so much potential, the main common area needs more comfy chairs/sofas/beanbags to hang out. The rooms need heaters as they are damp and cold. The kitchen needs a new cooker and new pans untensils, better opening hours it's shut over lunch!?! The one positive was that i arrived unwell before check in and the lady on reception got me a bed early. The breakfast is also pretty good. It's a shame because it's so clean it just needs some changes making it has a good location as well.
