This is probably one of the most awful hostels in Argentina. Everything is dirty, old and smelly. When we asked if breakfast was included, we got an answer like this ´yeah, I can make some eggs or something´ The staff was obviously under influence of weed all the time. The kitchen was so dirty that we just went to the bakery every morning. We didn´t want to know how the breakfast looked like. Avoid


The problems start when you squeeze through the front door, it looks like an abandoned house that people are squatting in. Guy checking us in was drinking & smoking and seemed very confused about our reservation, we were eventually led to our room which was FILTHY & smelly. Sheets were unusable, dirty & stained. Bathrooms are disgusting and I doubt they have ever been cleaned. Hot sweaty uncomfortable nights sleep & I was out of there first thing. Shame because the place has potential. Avoid

I've stayed in over 200 hostels in my life and this had to be the dirtiest, stickiest, and grungiest one yet! Avoid it if you can!!!


The toilets and the kitchen was not in a good shape, the room was okei, and the atmosphere were fine. We found what we were looking for, a place to stay while trying to learn spanish near san telmo.

Is little to midle hostel with a really nice enviroment, amazing people and excellent staff (always helpfull), just in the middle of San telmo, one of the turistic areas of bnos aires. Perfect place if you like to party and if you prefer little places in wich you're able to now the other guests and meke friends. Cons: Not the best facilities and beds. And a little dirty (But cheap) Probably good place if you're going to stay less than a week
