Pros: great location (restaurants, supermarkets, public transport, walking distance to Palermo and main sights of Recoleta), great staff who speak English and Spanish fluently, very safe, good kitchen facilities (kitchen is small but usable), some rooms have balconies, clean, spacious rooms Cons: mattress was quite thin in our double room, traffic was noisy when the doors to our balcony were open, simple breakfast Overall a great hostel, would recommend without hesitation and would stay again

It was hard to tell who was working at the time. Really friendly staff and they were giving a lot of good advices. No points for the breakfast.

This is an unusual hostel - on arrival it seems quite strange and after a few days it becomes very familial and community-based. It encourages you to meet the others guests; there's a bar on the terrace upstairs which is fantastic, breakfast is in the small TV room so you meet a lot of your hostelmates there, and some of the staff sleep at the hostel so you learn quickly to stop asking the typical traveller questions like 'how long are you in Buenos Aires for?' I'd recommend this place.

Pretty nice, relaxed hostel. Great location. Staff were all friendly. This hostel has most of what you need, but it is no frills, just basic rooms, beds you can sleep in, basic bathrooms (please fix all the water leaks), basic kitchen. The patio is nice and can get a bit lively in the evening on weekends, with music and drinks. Not super clean but not to bad. It's a hostel not a hotel, come with an open mind and you can have a good stay for a good price.

Such a great place to stay - nice outdoor areas (courtyard and front step) for fraternizing, clean comfortable beds, and beautiful building. The staff was so kind and fed us lentil soup right after we arrived from a long day of travel. If on a budget (or not?), would definitely recommend this place, especially if interested in staying closer to central Montevideo and the Tres Cruces station.

Nice hostel I can recomend with friendly 24 hours staff, close to shops, train and bus station. The room was a bit noisy and no TV and WIFI did only work outside the room. The breakfast was just tea, coffee, bread and jam. The kitchen was quite small but usefull. One TV for all. It's on 2. floor, so with heavy luggage a challenge.
