Very nice and friendly staff. Good Location. Good to meet new people. Very safe for a Hostel. Facilities are not that good - however that's the only negativ point. The atmosphere is excellent. Totally to recommend!

It is exactly what I expected for the price I paid, so no complaints. Some of the staff were really nice and helpful, but some just ignore you.


I think the price worth staying. In the beggining I really didn't like the smell of the bathroom but later I got used and all the strangers that were host there made everything get better. The atmosphere is really good cause it's a youth hostel so there were many beautiful people from all over the world. If I go to buenos aires again of course I am gonna stay at lime again. But I think thy could reform a little bit the space...

Good hostel. Good common area and breakfast. The bathrooms got very very gross by the day and some didn't have toilet paper refilled for like half a day. Also the hostel was filled with a school group so it was harder to meet people.


Very dirty bathrooms !


Great breakfast (tea/coffee, croissants, cereal, apple), especially the strong coffee! The bathrooms could be cleaner, floor mats would maybe limit water on the floor after showers. Otherwise this is a good value for money hostel, centrally located.


It's 60 pesos a night, go figure. Staff are nice once you get to know them, and it's an excellent spot. Otherwise bathrooms are in all honesty shocking, and it feels cold. You get a hot shower WiFi a kitchen and a bed to sleep in, if you're not fussy save your money and stay here for sure


The worst hostel so far!..that's out of 20 stayed in all over South America. Dark, dingey, stank of cigarette smoke with the 'fine to smoke inside' policy, nothing like the pictures. We cancelled our 3rd night it was that bad; given a twin room rather than double, freezing room with broken heater, curtain broken, stubbed out cigs left in there from previous people, horrendous toilet/showers with broken non flushing bogs, usually full of human excrement... Complete and utter dive of a place!


Super cheap, great location. Way too dirty for our liking. Basic breakfast. And its strangely dark in the whole place. They do have a pool table and a full bar.


Not bad but not great either, but hey, you get what you pay for


For the price this is a decent place to stay. It's not the cleanest but it's not dirty either. Well located in a fairly central area. The atmosphere was a bit dead.


We found dirty toilets. We could not sleep because people are drinking, talking and listening to loud music.

The crew was much worse than my first stay in 2011. It seemed that if you are not friend of them you can't get what you want. The bathrooms were terrible, no paper or towels. Disappointing.
