I had a great time at the hotel, very well located, near the subway lines, buses and metrobus, you can move more easily through the city. The guys in the administration were always friendly and ready to help at any time. It has free wifi, but rarely was a little slow or connection was lost, but it was not horrible, very good overall. the atmosphere is very quiet, I had a private double room, and I'm happy with my choice. I would totally recommend.

very friendly staff which gave good advice what to see and where to eat


We had a twin bedroom with a glass door to our ensuite bathroom that did not leave too much privacy... The breakfast area as well as the whole hostel could have been cleaner. Further, the hostel was quite far away from the centre which was not too bad but made the price seem quite high. The staff was nice though. It's okay if you don't expect too much.

Other people really seemed to like this hostel. Me on the other hand, not so much of a fan... I have been to nicer hostels in better locations closer to the central part of San Telmo. The showers I didn't like... There was no place to change and there was always water on the floor of the toilets. There is a library which is cool. Staff were helpful enough. Bunk beds were comfortable with ladders for the top bunk.


Nice peaple, nice atmosphere for a good price. The rooms are quite small but clean. The staff is very helpful and the hostel is only a 20 minute walk to the nice area of San Thelmo. For a few days Gardenhouse is really recommandable. I guess in summer (we've been there in winter) it's still nicer, because they have a big terrasse where they do barbecue together.

The Cleanliness of the common areas were ok, but our private bathroom wasn't clean enough. And the shower also was not good. (hot but little water)
