The staff were lovely and our actual room was fine. However there was a serious mosiquito issue which needs to be addressed. The communal area and shared bathrooms were riddled and there was no clear indication that there was any attempt to help the matter. Location was also a little bit too far out of town - easily a 20 minute walk.

is a bit far from the bus terminal, about 15 -20min with backpack. nice patio, helpful staff, laundry is a bit expensive tho. left early so didn't have breakfast. tiny bathroom in 6 bed dorm, but was clean.
Overall I was happy with my stay. I liked the BBQ and the staff was excellent. The room was very hot as there was no aircon, but in the second room I stayed in there was - so much better. The pillows are very uncomfortable! Way too high.
This hostel had a great vibe going on in the outdoor area. Friendly and helpful staff. Empanadas from the bar were great too. The dorms were clean and tidy and although the location was a walk to the centre it was definitely worth it.
A very welcoming hostel with great hot shower and a nice breakfast. Our double room was clean and comfortable and the hostel has good indoor and outdoor areas to sit and relax or chat with other travellers. It is worth staying on a aWed or Saturday for the BBQ, very tasty & great value. It's a bit of a walk to the main square but the area is safe so it's no problem. The facilities are good, bar, kitchen, wifi etc, overall an excellent hostel. Not a party hostel but a good social vibe.
We didn't know before arriving that they have a bar and sell *delicious* empanadas every night. If you get there tired after a long bus, just go down to the bar for empanadas for dinner. Also, we really enjoyed their grill that they have on Wednesdays and Sundays; costs 80 pesos and includes more food than anyone could hope to eat... the only bad part of that for us was that we didn't actually start eating until 10PM... a bit later than we are used to. Staff was really helpful.
staff really friendly but the lady on the front desk doesn't really speak English...aside from this though all staff went out of their way to help! good bar facilities and nice clean rooms with ensuites. I would definitely recommend!
Very pleased with the hostel. Nice room with nice beds. Everything we required for a short stopover in Salta.
It is a nice enough hostel but was let down by indifferent staff who gave no info or made you feel welcome. The set up is good with lots of outdoor communal space..if your staying in summer! It was freezing cold and very little warm/covered space to sit without hiding in your room. I'd a little walk from the main town but didn't feel unsafe at all..wouldn't mind hoing back when Warmer to see if it deserves a better score!
Nice enough place, great staff but way too noisy. Loud music until midnight every night ( even though there was no one to listen to it!) apart from Friday night when it went on until 4.00am. Sleep was hard to come by here.
I can see why this place gets great reviews and so many of them. Very clean rooms, bathrooms and communal areas. Great bar / lounge / outdoor area. And Victor the barman / chef / all round great guy certainly helps make the place what it is. Don't let the 10-15 min walk to the square put you off at all. 1) It's a nice walk and 2) it's good to get some exercise. Reception staff are also fantastic. In fact everybody was more than happy to help. Best hostel yet!!!
Pros: Great, friendly staff, especially Victor, who is a legend (and makes great empanadas); good size lockers; generally clean despite it being a dusty town Cons: The ensuite in my room wasn't that good, but you can always use the shared bathroom; 15mins walk from city centre Other notes: BBQ on Wed/Sat but only if there are enough people Overall: Great place with awesome staff
We had a room next to reception and they could get quite loud. Bit of a walk to the centre.
I liked Salta Por Siempre! The staff is helpful -they tell you even where to take your broken shoes to be mended. The place is pleasant, and the food they make for special asado is more than worhwhile. The only problem? Despite heating, rooms are a bit too cold.
The hostel was lovely and clean with a great communal patio and the receptionists were all very helpful! There was one lady in paticular whose knowledge of local tours and bus times was wonderful. Thank you so much!
Staff were very helpful and most can communicate some english. Bathrooms clean, but shower leaked everywhere as there was no edge to the shower. Location was a bit further from main area but walkable. Doesn't feel unsafe at night, but is definitely less busy than other areas, so know where you are heading if you go out at night.
Nice, warm, with good facilities. Only drawback: a bit further away from the main square than many other hostels, but Salta is relatively small, so this should not be an issue. Excellent staff, and even good lattes from a real espresso machine for the breakfast :-)
The staff was unbelievably friendly, from the moment I checked in to my very last goodbye. I couldn't have asked for a better way to end my trip.

This is a great hostel with clean, comfortable rooms and friendly and helpful staff. There are several attractive areas for relaxing in, especially the lovely courtyard. Best of all, the dorms have nice ensuite bathrooms which seems to be a rarity in hostels.
