I was there with my mother, the place was secure, clean, confortable; pretty.... We really had a good time there. People and responsible were very friendly and welcoming. Good Place to stay!


Amazing experience, nice owners always willing to help you. Perfect place to stay while you book some tours. Not a party hostel tough.

Very good hostel. I stayed for one night, and it was perfect. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. Only improvement could be to have some private lockers for valuables. Overall very good hostel, I'd highly recommend it.


Peaceful, clean, and cheap place: the minimal dream of the bagpacker!


The hostal is nearby the center. It is managed very well by the owners Liliana and Ruben. They are really very friendly and helpful in everything. The cleanless in the hostel (rooms, toilets and showers) are more than excellent. The breakfast is typical for Argentina, so it is a little bit small for Europeans. We definitely recommend this hostal.


Very nice hostel, friendly and helpful staff, good location. Things to improve: breakfast could be bigger (but still is very tasty) + you need to pay for luggage storage after check-out - we saw it for the first time during our stay in South America...


This hostel was good - we we're just there for one night, but it was fine as a stop over hostel.


Great anf friendly host. Will ensure you had a good stay and give advice on the surrounding. Though kitchen was bit small but have all things you needed. Lastly, you definitelty should not miss their house cat Lola, very gental and lovely!


Pity there were no windows in the room, but that is not a reason not to choose this hostel. Very nice owners and staff, very helpful. Highlight was the cat Lola, always happy to cuddle with you ;-)


the hotel is very central, clean and cosy, good shower and godd breakfast. the hosts Liliana and Ruben were so sweet and friendly which made the stay even better. the cat Lola was a plus :)


Nice place in the city center. Great Staff and a nice cat. Small private room and there is few privacy.


We were greeted on arrival by the lady who runs the hostel and her unpleasant scowl. We were then given the tour which consisted of showing us the 'facilities' which included a kitchen, amusingly described as a cocinita, where you'd struggle to prepare a glass of water; the communal space which is occupied 24/7 by the aforementioned Mrs. Scowl and her grumpy hostel staff; and the bathrooms and showers, both accessed by going through the outdoor courtyard. Great when it gets to -12c at night!

Owner Comment (Hide)
We can only guess that your unhappiness was caused by you having reserved 2 days wanted to pay for only 1. According to the HW policies we have rights to charge our guests for the whole duration of the booking or, of course you could look for other accomodations around the town. You chose the first option and then all started to seem "grumpy" to you. What a way to travel around the world!!! And it is never -12c in Salta... ever... Have an excellent journey, guys!!!


Very nice hostel - lovely owners that were really accommodating and helpful! Everything was always really clean and proper. We felt no inconvenience at the fact that we had to share the bathroom as all was kept clean all the time.
