Staff was nice but not very good at English and did not seem to know a lot about the tours the hostel provided. Hostel had a lot of activities and made it possible to eat dinner there a couple of times which was fairly cheap. It is located a bit from the "city" and it takes about 15 minutes to walk. Otherwise really nice location with an excellent view. All of the beds made a lot of noise eveytime one would move, so you woke up everytime someone turned over.
At check-in, despite being told the room was ready, we were unable to receive clean bedding and we (there were two of us) were only able to receive 1 key card. The beds looked unclean. When the bedding arrived, it wasn't the cleanest. Breakfast was good and varied. Good atmosphere and warm water in the shower. Plug sockets were temperamental. View of the harbour was lovely. All 6 lockers were in a 3x2 tower meaning two people needed to be quite tall!
Pro - great location with amazing views Con - reception and bar staff were always very unhappy (the complete opposite to staff in other Che Lagarto hostels we've stayed in). Wifi rarely worked. Breakfast was average.
beautiful location. wake up every morning to the best view for breakfast. close to the parties at the Aquarius bar. bathrooms are in the dorm rooms en suite style which gets pretty smelly and dirty in the big room (I stayed in an 8 person dorm). really fun place to stay. super nice hostel. big lockers for all your stuff. wifi didn't work but who cares you're on a beautiful island. all in all a great place to stay. lots of info about things to do.
Hostel was dirty (the kitchen was disgusting) and I saw a large rat near the kitchen area. Cockroaches all over the beautiful deck. There wasn't even any soap in the tiny overheated kitchen and barely any utensils (all of which was dirty - but then there was nothing to clean them with!) Staff were not particularly friendly or helpful (apparently asking for some soap to clean up after ourselves is strange..and what I thought was strange was that they had none!) There was no wifi at all.
Perfect location with an ocean view terrace, run by 98 percent argentinians, average breakfast, freindly staff. For flushing the toilet you need to wait 15 minutes :) a nice place, we would definately come back some day.
The hostel was nice, but absolutely disgusting (especially the bathrooms, private or common). In the dormitory, if you have to sleep on the upstair bed, the temperature is bearly handable. It was also very expensive but the problem is you don't have so many other choices on the island.
