We spent 3 days at another hostel first and then moved to Salta Por Siempre. The building is very nice; it's a big hostel, well decorated, good facilities with a great book exchange, laundry, etc. However, we were really disappointed in the staff and the amount of information they gave. We had to ask for maps, wifi password, etc. One guy stopped by to ask for a tour and they just handed him a flyer without explaining it. Also, it's a 15 minute walk to the main square, restaurants, etc.
Good things... clean room and bathroom, nice hot chocolate at breakfast, excellent wifi (several routers), allowed us to use bedroom lockers passed check-out (but Prob cz hostel was quiet). Bad things... kitchen dirty, electricity cut out so no light in room for 4hours, pingpong ball was like a concrete ball, told us wrong time for start of tour so woke up hour n half earlier than needed to. Overall wouldn't recommend, probably better hostels out there for your stay in salta.
Had a nice stay at hostel Salta. Breakfast was basic but the kitchen was large and allowed groups to cook at once. The asaldo was amazing! I stayed in a 3 bed room with ensuite which was lovely. Staff only spoke a little English but that was ok. The walk to the main square was only 10 mins.
Salta por Siempre is a gem of a hostel (especially for the price). Large, open garden patio for hanging out. Awesome cactus garden. Breakfast is standard Argentine bread and jam, but your coffee is made to order. The staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful. Even got to help prepare the Saturday night asado and learned some new recipes. Only gripe is that you have to squeege the bathroom floors after each shower, but otherwise a wonderful choice.
Loved this hostel. Staff really helpful, gave lots of info on tours, using public transport, sights to see etc. Rooms were cleaned daily, fresh towels daily too! Lots of social areas Their BBQ is amazing. Not just tasty, juicy meat.... they grill/BBQ so many vegetables. Best meal I had in ages :-) go hungry.
The hostel is 15 minutes walk from the bus stop, not 10. And it is about a 10 minute walk to the center square, not 5 blocks. There is plenty of restaurants and stores within a block or two. The hostel has a big communal area with a bar, usually people there eating/ drinking/ hanging out. The staff are not great, many don't speak English and are not very helpful. They don't know answers to many questions and make no effort to find out. Breakfast is bread and tea.
This hostel was adequate for one night's stay but I wouldn't have stayed more nights. They have a good book exchange, very friendly staff and a nice courtyard to socialise in. The kitchen facilities were not very good as we struggled to even make pasta with what they had, and the decor and general look of the place is dated and drab. The stay was ok and I felt safe.
Good hostel: clean, and lovely shared spaces. Big patio and indoor dining area/bar. Asado on Saturdays and Weds is great. Coffee prepared for you individually at breakfast is a nice touch, though the rest being just bread and jam is a little disappointing (though very common in Argentina). Hot powerful showers. Rooms and decor a little shabby but all round a solid choice in Salta.
Basic hostel with a lovely garden area. Only 10/15 minutes walk to the city centre. The barbecue on Saterday evening was really good and a great way to meet other people.
This is a big hostel with about 30 rooms (I'm saying this because I think it makes a difference regarding the atmosphere). Towels and sheets are changed every day, which is not very ecological. Half of the lockers in my room could not be locked.
Best assado I have ever had. Great atmosphere, very chilled and friendly. Nice place with friendly helpful staff, they don't speak great English but they're patient and happy with hand signals
Only stayed one night but it was asado night which was awesome - good food and company. The hostel is a bit of a trek from the centre. Our room smelled musty despite the window being open all the time.
Best hostel ever!!! Justo- the guy at the desk is a babe- takes you to his fave bars/clubs etc. The Asado is an amazing steak and 3 course meal - wicked outdoors bar bit which is very sociable! Kitchen isn't great- utensils are a bit gross to use but the general atmosphere and hospitality makes up for it. Breakfast is your standard bread affair which seems common in argentina but got a very decent coffee which I was happy with. If you want a fun or chill time you'd be a fool not to stay here!
This is a very cute hostel but it's a little far from the city center and restaurants. Staff was very unhelpful when it came to helping us plan what kind of activities to do while in Salta. They couldn't give us any suggestions which was a bit frustrating. And the Internet hardly worked most of the time. Also had some problems sleeping due to the fact that people were playing guitar and singing from about 2:30am till 4am. On the positive side they have good coffee and a nice garden.
We had a great time at the hostel, they upgraded our room for free when there were none of the one we booked available. There was a great atmosphere and social area. They also put on a great bbq meal. Great experience.
Had a night few nights stay here. It had a hotel like feel although. Enjoyed having my own double bed in a room of four. Kitchen had decent facilities and equipment for cooking.
This place is actually called "Salta por siempre". We came in late and booked this so we would have a place to go. We ended up being so extremely comfortable here that we stayed 5 nights total. Why? Thr beds were comfortable, the service was awesome with great driving and visitation advice, the breakfast is the same as most places.. Bread.. But the made to order coffee was outstanding. We liked it a ton, and would go back any time.
