Most helpfull staff so far! They can answer all your questions.


Loved that place. I´m coming back.


Really wonderful staff & very clean bathrooms!


very nice and helpful staff


Good hostel, helpful staff especially the Chinese guy... Breakfast ok! Good wifi, nice big, clean bathrooms, plugs at every bed. Nice big pool table! Thankyou for a nice stay!


Hostel is in a great location but felt dirty and the beds never really got cleaned. The facilities are extremely dirty, especially the kitchen. Free breakfast, internet works fine. Staff was nice but it was really loud during the night so I couldn’t sleep as well as all roommates from my dorm, but the receptionist did nothing to stop shouts, so it was extremely loud till 2-3am.


-Everything was fine, but San Telmo is not the best place for girls at night.


Had a nice stay at the hostel, the neighborhood is not the best, but central and close to public transportation. Staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms as such are nothing special, but for the price really ok. Nice common area with pool table, kitchen, and awesome music ;)


I booked into a single private room and it wasnt cleaned the whole time I was there. Night shift person unprofessional, smoking whatever and drinking all night. Day shift guy SO DAMN HELPFUL ! He was the saving grace. Noisy on some nights. Breakfast missing key ingredients on some days, like milk, and as is typical for argentina, was very sweet. But kitchen ok, able to cook if you wanted


I really recommend this hostel: It is very comfortable and the staff is very helpful! The atmosphere is good and the breakfast is ok.


Great hostel and staff, great atmosphere and well organised. Location is close to Centro and lots of tourist spots, but is definitely not the most beautiful to stay. The price was awesome, veeery cheap for a good hostel! Too bad there weren't many people at the hostel, but that's not their fault ;)

Good location in San Telmo district, just off Av.9th July. Staff very informative an helpful with great English spoken. Security good. Rooms basic but clean. Couldn't open any window for ventilation which made room a little 'musty' to say the least! Bathrooms and toilets clean though cumbersome design, one wrong move and you'll get clothes wet! Big amount of comfy social space downstairs. Breakfast very basic. It's not the loudest or most in-your-face hostel but it suits most characters and I wo


Met lots of wonderful people here!
