nice hostel in great proximity to town center and bus stop.
ok hostel. Facilities were old and staff not that helpful. They didnt speak English. Breakfast was ok. Location was good.
The private double room was spacious and in excellent condition. The garden looked fantastic but we were only there for one rainy night! The place was very quiet which suited us after a long day at the falls. The staff were friendly and helped us with our airport transfer. Note that they charge for A/C between 10am and 10pm which could be an issue for anyone planning spend time in the room during the day. Overall this was a good place for quick stop over visiting the falls.
It's an old building, but that's the beauty of Recoleta. Plenty of life in the neighborhood, but not enough noise to prevent you from sleeping. There was a concert on the upstairs patio, a simple bar with a pizza oven, and pleasant guests of various ages including some from Argentina.
About 5-10min from the bus station, Staff was really friendly, explaining a lot about the National Park and answering questions. Rooms are supposed to be locked and keys dropped at the reception. It was a nice spot to hang out after the national park in the pool and meeting nice people
Great hostel, amazing garden! Hammocks, pool, vegetation and flowers all around, it was beautiful! The room are extremely clean and the staff is helpful. I would definitely recommend it! Oh and the breakfast is great. ;)
Only Stead here for one night. Rooms nice and with AC.Hostel has a Pool and the breakfast was really good, Eggs, Bread, Cakes, Cereal, Tea, Coffee and Juices. Close to town centre and only a few blocked away from the Bus station
The standard double room we had was very nice and spacious. A short walk from the bus terminal and a lovely swimming pool. Only negative was the kitchen facilities which were basic and very small which made cooking difficult as very little work top space to prepare. Would still recommend for a short stay to visit the falls.
My stay at the hostel was very good: at the reception they gave me a lot of information about the town and activities to do around, the room was comfortable and clean (good for the 5 people staying), and breakfast was sufficient (bread, eggs, fruits, coffee, milk, cereal, juice). What I liked the most was the help offered by the receptionists at all time.

Lovely garden, small pool to help cool down after visiting the falls. Good breakfast in the morning. Kitchen could do with more cooking facilities.
The place has nice gardens which attract mosquitos. Nice social areas which get noisy and crowded because the WiFI doesn't work in the bedrooms. They blame Argentinian server which is a lie. Breakfast is very low standards when you think this is the tropic and they offer sour oranges, stale bread and coffee. Tiny rooms. Squeeze a family of 4 in a tiny room. Hard matresses. Noisy until guest go to sleep. And sorry not good to have guests making love at 2 am in the social area. Not cool!

Really quaint, relaxing hostel. The backyard garden is beautiful and the hostel itself provides everything you look for in a hostel. Bathrooms were clean, staff was friendly, overall great stay, would recommend
My husband and I arrived two days early, but there was no room for us so the owners very kindly called around the local hostels until they found a private room for a similar price. This was very helpful as it was 10.30pm and we were tired and new to the town. It's a five minute walk to the bus station, but it's located in a quieter part of town. The hostel has a beautiful garden, and is very peaceful. It was very quiet at night. The breakfast included fruit. The rooms are clean and cheerful.
Part of the staff was amazing and part of it was ok. The facilities and location are great, and I really recommend staying in this hostel.

Fantastic place, really nice swimming pool and garden. Breakfast was one of the best we had in Argentina. Good atmosphere, very friendly and helpfull staff.
Really nice, quiet hostel with a great backyard and open-air kitchen. Staff was very helpful. Relaxing atmosphere - would stay there again!
Very good, helpful management at the hostel. Nice, tranquil place.
Lovely breakfast,nice pool and seating area.It would have been nice to have wifi at the kitchen area instead of having to go to the reception. Everything else good and staff helpful
The hotel was good enough but silly little things like the breakfast not being fresh, as it was cooked early. Signs to say the tv was only allowed to be. Turned on during 7am and 12pm otherwise they would charge. The AC not allowed to be turned on during times when it would be needed most. They also said that's at iguanid they don't take card for the adventure rides. He was wrong as guessing he wanted a sale himself.
Convenient location - 3 blocks from omnibus terminal, walking distance from 3 frontiers. Room and bathrooms were cleaned daily. Was able to check-in the morning after a 20 hour bus ride. Perfect place to chill out and be surrounded by nature after a big day either by the pool or in the hammock.
