"We offer free shuttle service from the airport. Our contact information will be in your booking confirmation email." this information is not enough on hostelworld.com (Map & Directions), get more information after you have booked, this free shuttle after at 06 pm there should, give details before making booking, for me was not enough, because I landed in the airport at 7:40 pm, per mail I received response that may still make a reservation for the free shuttle.


wow this hostel is so so good. Breakfast has bread and spreads but also fruit and yoghurt, huge rooms with high ceilings and fantastic bathrooms. Great wi-fi, lots of computers to use, great book exchange, enormous common area, a DVD room, small kitchen is the only downside. Great wi-fi, lots of help from staff if you need it for booking things. I cannot commend this hostel enough AND a 11am check-out! Spot on - all for a great price. We stayed here twice, and love it!


There's no denying that this is the best location for a hostel and the staff were very friendly. However the lack of AC in the rooms on a humid day makes sleeping very hard. Also the hostel is full of Brazilians or anti-social Apple lovers so very unlikely to meet people. On the plus side they have a pool table.


Super staff, great location in the center, near the subway. Would stay there again.


I will not recommend this hostel to my friend because you have lots of other choice actually. No wifi in room, very noise room because it just locate at the busy road exactly, poor kitchen facility, only 2 toilet n bathroom for the whole floor ppl, toilet n bathroom facilities with some broken and not very clean. The only good things are the location and they got a stupid lift for my suit-case. ( they hv 4 floor)


as always great staff,they always amaze me,have been staying here for the last 5 years,every time I come to Buenos aires I stay here


Cleanliness: The found an entire pack of nuddles under the bed that seamed to be since ever. It was not possible to read the expiration date so lang it was here! Facilities: Internet & Breakfastbuffet are excellent, the citytour also, but one kitchen is not enough for a so big hostel. Even more if the knifes and spoons have to be search over two or three floors.


Wifi didn't really work, but there are some computers you can use. The staff at the reception desk partly wasn't really friendly. Apart from that, great location, breakfast was ok/good. Very good value for money.


Really nice social area with a decent pool table as well. Really good location as well. Stay here if you want a chilled atmosphere but want to be close to nightlife as well


very friendly and helpful staff

Almost everyone that stays here is from brazil so it was hard yo communicate with them. The street is very loud at night, although the location is the best.

Very big hostel. Quite impersonal and too few staff at the front desk so always long line ups. Lots of activities but they charge more than they actually cost. It's about making money. A fan in the hot rooms would be good. Windows open mean being eaten by mosquitos through the night. Location is right in the city and it's close to the metro. Probably wouldnt stay here again but it did the job for a bed and roof over our head.


My favorite part of the hostel was the lounge area and the staff. The lounge is very chill with a pool table and music system. Very easy to meet friends. The staff were awesome and always helpful. My room was facing the Main Street and very loud due to traffic and such. It was also quite hot and just had a tiny fan in the room. We never plugged it in because there was only one outlet in the room and our phones took priority. Good location near Florida St.

Really nice staff, who were helpful with lost stuff. Cool old building and nice vibe. Basic breakfast but good bathroom and dorm, old lift slightly annoying as people kept leaving door open. Pretty good location for Central downtown.


This hostel has great sized dorms!However, there is no bar or party scene in this hostel which is a shame. Staff were pretty helpful for the most part. Value for money here with clean and spacious rooms, you'll just have to eat, drink and party elsewhere. Not enough bathrooms though!!


I must have been there at the wrong time as it was full of spanish and portuguese speaking travellers. It could be a good place if either I could speak spanish or others there speak english.


Staff was VERY helpful in suggesting and booking activites, specifically, a tango show and bus tour of the city. We were able to leave our luggage in secure storage while taking the next day's bus tour in the morning, and until we left for the airport that afternoon. Beds were comfy, bathroom was shared with only one other room, so easy to use. Breakfast was ample and included cereal and yogurt in addition to juice and breads and butter and jam. Room had a floor fan and reading lights.


My second time there. It`s very good. :)


Stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. Spacious and airy room, but noisy from the dorm next door. Staff were generally helpful, you can book tickets and hostels from here but it will be slightly more expensive (eg hostel in Iguazu $US5 per person more expensive than just booking via internet). Felt a bit pressured to book lots of other bus tickets when we just wanted to get a bus ticket to Iguazu, for me it is just better to be flexible and book as you go.

Well, this is a tough nut to crack. Although the hostel seems very pretty, well-organised and espècially well-located at first there are a few downsides to it. First, its not a hostel with a common clientele. Big families, expats and backpackers all find a place to sleep here. Second, wifi is provided, but only in the common area. Staff is a bit grumpy and most importantly, BEDBUGS!! So, would not reccommend! Had a nice roommate though, stared at him for ages in the shower.
