Spent five days in this hostel while traveling through Buenos Aires and had a great time! The staff is really friendly and knowledgeable about things going on in the city. The location is great - walkable to the Teatro Colon, Plaza de Mayo, Obelisk and very near the Subte if you wanted to go farther out. Not sure if the hostel responsible but definitely attracts a fun group of people - as a solo traveler met tons of people to have dinner with nightly and wander the city.

I stayed there for a week and it really felt like family! The staff is really nice and helpful, and it is located in a safe neigbourhood, halfway beetween the center and Palermo where you can party by night! I was in the 6 beds dorm and we had private lockers. The breakfast is fine (croissants, bread and some sweet stuff), and you can also cook you own meals in the kitchen. The bathrooms were large and fine, and the water hot (almost) all the time! Would definitely recommand.


The staff were friendly but the hostel is terrible value for money, very worn out rooms, stained mattresses, I'll fitting sheets, the included breakfast is terrible. Very expensive for what you get.
