Good location (15' walking to the centre) and low price for BA. The dorm is spacious with big lockers for everyone. Enough bathrooms and showers (good water-pressure and hot water) provided. Breakfast is on the basic side but ok. Staff is helpful and friendly. Wifi rather on the slow side, but stable. A/C in the dorm works on and off. The atmosphere is a bit lacking. Nevertheless a good place if you visit BA and don't expect a place with a lot of soul.


Strange atmosphere... Very nice facilities, very clean however savings are made at the wrong place. The hostel seams to be short in cash, we have been asked 3 times a day for payment, even though they told us in the beginning that it was ok to pay at chek-out.


Located just a couple blocks away from the busy street av de Mayo, it's easy to access multiple bus routes but also a nice quiet neighborhood. Close to several grocery stores with a clean kitchen should you choose to prepare your own meals. San Telmo is close & great to visit the market on the weekend. Basic breakfast with cereal and bread. Arrabal is not much of a party hostel so maybe book elsewhere if that's what you are looking for. I loved the mellow vibe and stayed longer than planned


Excellent stay thank you hostel arrabal !!!


Clean place in a decent location. Close to Buses & Metro!


Good hostel. Nothing amazing, but nothing to complain about either. The lady who checked us in was lovely and helpful. One guy who does the night shift is a bit scattered though. I don't think he is a morning person, breakfast was always set up late and don't bother asking him a question in the morning. Close to San Thelmo, the bus stop, metro, supermarket and walking distance to the micro centre and la Boca. Good chill out area but not much of a party atmosphere. Really close to bars though


I was amazed with the cleanliness of this Hostel. I definitely recommend it and its staff. Thanks!
