Loved staying in this hostel for a few nights whilst in Salta, even extended our stay by one night because we were so comfortable. Would definitely come back here again. The rooms were clean and had charging points and a wardrobe. Showers were nice and warm and clean, small cooking area worked just fine. Also included was breakfast which was just right. The owners are very friendly and Lola the cat made for great entertainment.

We could only stay in this property for one night due to availability but the owner sorted another room out for us just around the corner which was really helpful. We tried to get breakfast 10 minutes before it finished but there was no food left, would be worth not leaving it so late! Hostel had a BBQ that they let us use which was a really great night and rooms/bathrooms were kept clean.

I really liked this hostel. The owners were extremely helpful, open & honest and kept everything running smoothly. Breakfast included good coffee and media lunas, and while on the small side it is the typical breakfast of the locals so no complaints there. The only downside for me was that the rooms have no external windows due to the architecture of the street so can be a bit stuffy.

Didn't feel that secure with a public cafe close to the rooms. The bathrooms were small and the water from the shower covers the whole floor. Breakfast was nice but small, just pastries and coffee. Staff were nice though and is situated pretty much in the centre.

stayed for 2 nights in twin bed room. The hostel is not that cosy and smells like incence (wierook) the whole time. The rooms are very basic but ok. The kitchen is very small and underequipped. The breakfast is nice but not much. (good coffee)) The staff is nice and helpfull. We loved the siamese cat Lola.

As a couple we stayed in a twin room thinking it would be two singles we could push together but turned out it was bunk beds which we were unaware of. The owners are lovely friendly people who made us feel very welcome - but they don't speak English. Kitchen was disappointing as there was no fridge or oven (just hob), although it was all kept very clean. This isn't much of a social hostel as there's lack of seating but good enough if you just want a comfy bed.

Good hostel. Offer several tours for a good price. They even serve breakfast outside of the hours. Friendly staff. Kitchen is small but it was enough because there not so many rooms. Location is perfect only a few blocks from the centre.
