Great hostel with central location just a short walk from the subte station Independencia away. Clean rooms and bathrooms with enough space, comfortable beds, helpful staff and all for a low price. They also have a nice common area to hang out and play billiard. Breakfast is really basic and could be improved. I would definitely stay here again when I come back to Buenos Aires!
Cleanliness is not a priority at this hostel. The majority of the bathroom stalls are missing toilet paper. The floors and counter tops are grimy as well. They do not empty the trash cans everyday and there are fleas in the back patio area. The biggest thing is that they should be cleaning the hostel once a week but also taking out the trash and cleaning the bathrooms every day!

While it's extremely cheap to stay in the dorms, it shows in the general griminess of the place. The cooking area is tiny, wayy too small for a hostel of it's size. And the bathrooms/kitchen aren't cleaned daily and they dont take the trash out every day either. It's a pretty disgusting hostel to stay in. Personally, the one must in a hostel: cleaning bathrooms/kitchen/trash out thoroughly every day. TP was always lacking, beds are old, and breakfast is cereal/bread.
Great hostel to stay at. Staff were friendly and welcoming. This hostel is situated in a vibrant nightlife part of town and staff were willing to assist where needed.
The value for money is very good. The hostel is simple, and you don´t pay much. The beds are comfy. When I went, there was no many people, so I couldn´t meet anyone. Anyway, I would stay in it again, because the price is good.
We enjoyed our stay here. Nice lounge area, large kitchen facilities, pool table, basic but clean rooms. We were here for the New Year's Eve party, which was a lot of fun. If you happen to be there when they're is holding a bbq, get in on it! The owner is a grilling pro and a great host.

It was an easy walk to the subte and many area restaurants. Be careful at night, though.
Rooms are spacious and have metal lockers. The floor of my room was quite dirty when I arrived and was not cleaned until two days later. But everything else was cleaned regularly so maybe that was an exception. The staff was really helpful and it was nice to have two little patios. The comunal area was really comfy anyway!
