The 3 bed room on the top floor (aka the storage room) was horrible. It was way up on the 4th floor of a building which has double storey floors. It was a tiny 3x3m room which held 3 beds (1 bunk and 1 normal). There was almost no walking space between beds. What's worse is that the room is super hot and a loud fan. And if that is not bad enough, it's only window is right above the bar which stays open till 3-4am each night so you will definitely not get a good night sleep. AVOID THIS ROOM.
Good athmosphere with the bar upstairs. Very friendly and helpful staff. The cleanliness of the beds is however not perfect. The showever is in the same room as the toilet and cannot be closed off with a curtain. Bad soundproof for the rooms close to the entrance. Though overall good value for money.
This place is great - a beautiful old building with great open spaces for getting to know other travelers, a lovely patio, generous breakfast and best of all an amazing, helpful staff. It's in a safe neighborhood and very convenient to many things you'll want to see as well as buses and subway. On the weekends they have really good bands on the patio - instant fun, great pizza and atmosphere. I've stayed in a lot of hostels in BA - now I'll never go anywhere else! You won't be disappointed!
I've had an excellent stay. Especially the staff was very helpful! Too bad I couldn't receive the WiFi signal in my room.
Really great place, staff are helpful and friendly, the vibe is awesome. Both locals and travellers from all over, live music on weekends. Facilities are basic and bathrooms a bit awkward but thats not a big issue.
I was only planning on staying at El Sol for a couple of nights, but because of the incredible staff, accomodations, and congenial atmosphere (especially at the upstairs bar), I ended up staying for nearly a month! El Sol is an incredible hostal in the ideal location in Buenos Aires. I highly recommend it to every traveler I´ve seen since in South America!

The room where we stayed was particularly old. There was no lock on the door and the beds were in bad shape. The lockers had no keys nor could we use locks on them as there was no support for it.
