We absolutely loved our stay! The location above all was perfect, nestled in the bohemian neighbourhood with everything at a stones throw. The staff were amazing, so helpful and kind, and the hot showers were a gift after a long day of exploring the city! Check out el gato Gris, really close by, for some of the best cuisine around!

The rooms were not confortable and were very cold, the sheets were dirty, and we even had to buy soap and rent towels. The breakfast wasn't included and the portions were really small. The reception's staff didn't make a good atention, instead of that, the ladies who made the breakfast were very polite and friendly.

Very nice hostel in a great location, but staff could have been a bit more friendly, and the atmosphere was a bit dull. Other than that great facilities, and a comfortable stay for a few nights.
Cheap hostel so the rooms are fine for the money. One thing that definitely made our experience poor was the staff. One in particular was spectacularly unhelpful. Unfortunately we were mugged at knife point one night during our stay and she was very unhelpful in helping us sort it out. She didn't even seem sympathetic after what was obviously quite a traumatic experience. Shame as the hostel is well located for exploring the city so if the staff improved we would go back as it is good value.
Good location. Proximity to many restaurants and bars in la Candaleria. Gets a bit cold at night, bring sweaters and sweatpants. Shower runs out of hot water fast, so shower early morning or at night.
Staff were very friendly...the only issue was that the shower was cold
Nice tidy hostel, bars and restaurants very close. Cheap breakfast available in the morning. Nice area to have a drink. Good wifi. Only downside was the kids making lots of noise in the hallway outside the rooms at 6.30am, not ideal...
Great hostel. Near city center and mont margarite. The staff is really friendly Daniel and the girl at front desk in mornings even on saturday morning she had a big smile on her face!! Good wifi! Recomendado!!!
Great location in the middle of Candelaria and warm rooms but there is no atmosphere in the common area (It would help if they played some music or something!). Also, the showers don't live up to the hype!
We extended our stay with the guy working at the front desk for two nights and hesaid everything was good to go. A day latter we arrive back at the hostel at 7pm on a Saturday night to find all of our personal belongings put in trash bags and thrown in the laundry room. The staff was very rude and said our room had been double booked and we had to leave. Several of our personal items including my girlfriends reading glasses were missing. I do not recommend staying at this hostel.
This hostel had everything that I needed - security, comfort, a kitchen, snacks and beer, computers with internet and wifi. The front desk staff were polite and attentive and assisted me by providing directions, insights, and arranging for my taxi at 4:30 in the morning (as well as reassuring me as to what the correct price would be). I highly recommend staying here because it has everything that you need and is a bargain. The lockers are even adequately sized to accomodate a large suitcase.
