Really chill hostel, clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff. This is the place to return when I visit Buenos Aires again.


Really great hostel in terms of cleanliness, location, security, comfort, facilities. The only thing that it's lacking is atmosphere - the guests hardly interacted with eachother, only within their groups of friends. As a single traveller, that's a big of a dissapointment. However it could just be due to the guests who were there when I was there.


It was so great to come back to the hostel on a hot afternoon to an air conditioned common area. It certainly helped to promote social interaction. The staff were friendly and always helpful, and worked to ensure the hostel was kept clean. I think it would be nice if the rooms were kept just a little bit cooler at night, but I would definitely stay here again!


The staff is very helpful, but two of them speak English very poorly. Awesome breakfast!


My gf and I stayed here and I don't normally write reviews but I thought this place deserved it. Very safe area with an easy walk to subway and shops. Toilets & bathrooms I saw getting cleaned every day. The staff were very friendly and always willing to help. They seemed to care about the place a lot and I think the owner of this establishment should be proud of his staff.


The guy who works there (looks like Japanese) is really kind and knows anything about Buenos Aires. He helped me a lot.


A pretty nice hostel to stay in, is in a great location and the facilities were pretty great too.


This was a nice relaxed hostel and one that felt very comfortable. The staff were really good and helpful. A massive especially big thanks to Ignacio. He was really helpful and friendly and gave a lot of great information. A big thanks to all the other staff too. Sometimes it's the people that make the hostel great. Thanks for a being home for a few days guys :) .


Cosy Hostel with a "like-home" atmosphere! Staff really helpful and good prices for dorms!


This became our home in Buenos Aires. We had planned on staying for a very short time (1 or 2 nights) and ended up staying for nearly 2 weeks. The staff we so so helpful and kind. The location was great - in Montserrat, super close to San Telmo with endless restaurants, bars, cafes - a very vibrant neighbourhood. Very spacious, the showers were good, they turned the A/C on for us at night, the kitchen could have been cleaner but overall it is such a lovely place.


A really good hostel, one of the best I've been to in South America. The price is one of the lowest you can find. If you are looking for a party hostel that is defiantly not the place. However, if you come as a group you can boost things up and enjoy the potantial of the place - there is a big screen tv, nice sofas area, huge kitchen and great pool table. One big downside is that they turn off the AC between 11am-11-pm, which is significant at BA heat. Marcio at the front desk is great!
