Definitely a budget option. It's initially quite quaint, but insidiously riddled with problems. The power went out several times. The bathrooms are old and have no separation between the toilet, sink and shower. One of the showers broke down and the other was near impossible to use. There was no warm water only freezing and scalding temps. After 2 nights of not being able to shower, I cut my stay short and booked a hotel. Would not recommend unless you literally just want a roof over your head.

1. There´s NO WIFI in the rooms 2. There´s only 1 mini freezer for the entire hostel and no kitchen so if you are planning to cook this is not your option 3. Bathrooms are pretty gross.... you kind of need to take a shower on top of the toilet like in India .....

No common space so the entrance is the reception and the dining room and the meeting room. The rooms open in the entrance so it's a little bit noisy even in the middle of the night. Bathroom are really small. Breakfast is only bread with butter and marmelade in the tv room. Good location in Recoleta and staff were nice but not really helpful.

The building is quite old and it looks like a squat. I must admit I liked it, but some people might find it dirty. Staff and long-term hosts are very nice. The terrace is good to enjoy some calm (since bedrooms on Marcelo T Alvear are quite noisy), but don't forget mosquito repellent :) Breakfast is pretty basic (bread, dulce de leche, jam and butter).

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.
