Not a bad hostel. We had a private room, comfortable, had a good heater, shower over the toilet with no lip to stop water spreading. Common garden area looked nice but not usable in cold weather. If you want to do laundry, go around the corner - the hostel charges per item but the nearby place charges ~40 pesos for a load and delivers back to the hostel!
A nice quiet stay in Salta. good facilities. Family friendly, easy access to town
Had a great stay, staff were extremely helpful and friendly with tips of things to do and places to go and eat in the city. Booked a dorm room but kindly gave us a private room which was a great surprise after a 24 hour journey!!!
Hostel was good, but I've stayed in better. It was clean and the staff were sweet and as helpful as they could be. Pros - strong wifi, showers hot, cleaned regular, only a 10 min walk to the square and BBQ that happens on a weds and Saturday. Cons - nowhere really to "hang" out other than the dinning room, so it was not comfy, which made it hard to meet people. Other than that it is a good hostel to stay if you are already in a group.
The BBQ night was fantastic - the meat was soooo delicious and we loved the empanadas! The location means it is a bit of a walk (maybe 10-15mins) to the square but we found this pleasant. The room was a reasonable size. Shower pressure and heat is consistent- as other have mentioned the set up is a bit inconvenient and the whole bathroom gets soaked. The staff were very friendly, especially one lady who always greeted us with a smile. Overall good value for money.
Room was old but comfortable, was unorganized and unsure of what beds were actualy free. Barbeque was delicious and so much food just a little expensive. worst part of hostel was being told the wifi would be working in 30mins but it hadnt worked in 3 days at least
Hostel Salta was a decent place to stay. Approximately a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The staff recommended some decent nearby restaurants to us and were otherwise helpful during our stay. The hostel was undergoing some work which meant wifi and access to computers was restricted but this wasn't a huge issue. The breakfast was basic but decent, and there is a bar and nice garden to socialise in/order drinks in. The rooms are basic and quite cold but we enjoyed our stay overall!
Outstandingly helpful staff, cool bar and lounge area, amazing hostal in general (totally worth the 2 additional blocks from the centre compared to the closest option).
Average hostel. The matras is really bad. Would not recommend this hostel.
very nice hostel...good common area with table tennis, tv and table football... rooms basic...
A great hostel. Staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Weren't too many people there when we stayed but I could see the place having a great vibe with a few more guests. Great facilities with a top kitchen. Definitely recommend.
Staff were nice, smiley, but also slow. The showers were above the toilet style, which got the bathrooms wet and the floors hardly dried. Several computers to use but only one worked. Internet was functional. Sunday BBQ was really delicious and it attracted a good crowd. Security was excellent except for no lock on the bag storage.

Although my first impressions of the hostel weren't good - I had to wait in the cluttered computer room until I could go to my room (I arrived at 7am), I loved the pretty courtyard with the plants, vines, cacti and ornamental bird cage and the way the rooms and kitchen and dining area were set out. There was a nice chilled atmosphere at the hostel and I met some nice people there. On the bad side - The computers were very old, slow and only one could be used with any degree of confidence.

Decent hostel with excellent garden area & weekly BBQ is excellent. A bit far away from the centre of town. I booked a single private which was a great deal. It is more of a chilled out hostel, though possibly more lively at the weekend. Wi-fi was patchy but this is South America. Probably the best place in Salta if you want to relax, if you want to party it's probably better to stay in the centre (or the loki) IMO
Plus points- We stayed in a private ensuite which was spacious and bright. Hot showers and decent wifi. Staff are lovely, kitchen is good
Great hostel, great atmosphere and really good for meeting new people, loved the asado night!!! A bit far from center but defenetly walkable.
Decent indoor and outdoor communal area. Asado put on by the staff is both delicious (I say this as a foodie) and also a great way of meeting other guests. Big lockers in rooms, en suite is okay. Beds not all that comfortable and you don't get a personal plug socket. Also only one key per dorm room so a little frustrating having to ask for it and hand it back in regularly. All in all a decent stay and the positives outweigh the negatives!
It's a nice hostel with very nice, friendly and helpful staff. It's a bit outside the centre (10-15 minutes walk) and therefore very quiet. My room was clean. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. The wifi was not very stable, but better than nothing :-)
Location is a bit out of the main area but easy to walk to, room is nice, bed is fine, bathroom is small but works, garden area is nice, kitchen is good but serious lack of silverware esp spoons, lounge and bar good, some problems with noise on some nights and some mornings, but generally fine, some wifi issues but plug-in access is available in the computer room
After a few difficulties with getting the room I had booked online when checking in, I did eventually enjoy my 3 nights here. Whilst the advertised BBQ never materialised, there was a good atmosphere and rooms were clean and comfy. The kitchen was a bit squashed and wifi was hit and miss, but I liked the location being away from the centre and it's walking distance from both here and the bus station - most people had moved here from other hostels which maybe says something.
