I don't understand the 'amazing' reviews for this place. The rooms and facilities are not clean. The tours they organise for you are however good value for money.


A very nice, and clean hostel. The owners are incredibly nice, happy, and helpful. While the breakfast was the standard Argentinian bread and dulce de leche, the coffee was excellent! The owners ask your morning coffee/tea preference each day and bring it to your table. Not really a place to socialize and meet other people, but if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing, clean hostel - this is the place! Good location, only a few blocks from the main square.


Nice little place with excellent bathrooms, plenty of hot water. Breakfast is pretty uninspiring and beds are super small but overall not a bad place


We did not have a great experience in this hostel. We had a private room with a bathroom, but when people used the public bathroom we could hear EVERYTHING. There is no real common area, other than outside area (too cold in winter) and breakfast is below average.


The beds were comfy and the room nice although they all look onto a large hallway so they aren't particularly private. The hostel is in a good location and is a good price. Kitchen is limited but works and we didn't have a problem cooking dinner in it. Breakfast is small but ok-I think one big bread roll would be better than the cold toast and small croissant. They charge 30A pesos to leave your bags there- seems a bit harsh, surely they could make this free!? They did for us!


The nicest people we have met in South America. Genuinely warm, friendly and very helpful.

Thank you for your opinion, it is easy to be all that you say, with passengers as friendly as you.


We enjoyed our stay very much. Keep up the good work!
