I had a good time in this hostel.


We had a great time! Cheap bar and awesome people to hang around with. We had to send a package to Israel and the staff kept helping us with the papers and one of the girls even offered to send the package for us! Thx Gisele, Dani and Nick for an awesome weekend!

Excellent location and tons of cool people to meet! Although the owner kept getting angry at us for partying in the hostel between midnight and 2am (why would you put a bar in your hostel if you didn't want people to drink and party there?) Also, there were some unhappy neighbors above the patio randomly dumping cold water on us when we were hanging out outside after hours, in an attempt to bring the noise down. Even so, I had a good experience there over all : )


We were well treated and enjoyed our stay. Many thanks!


Nice hostel! Open atmosphere for meeting people. Breakfast is little sweet but fine. Not to far walking from the beach and supermarket. Although the best beaches are a little outside of mar del plata, but easily to reach with a bus. Had a four bed dorm with fine beds


It was off season, so I can't tell anything about the atmosphere at the hostel. There were not that many guests that day. I can tell thought, that the rooms need power sockets. There was only one and it was used by the TV and another one in the toilet. In addition, the shower was not my kind of thing, although it had hot water. It just splashed over everything in the toilet. Apart from it, I had a pleasant stay. Beware,rooms have no A/C
