This is an excellent hostel and I would strongly recommend staying here - the staff are very helpful with directions, bus tickets and they got me a ticket to see Boca Juniors tickets with 24 hours notice. Breakfast is good and there is a good backpacker atmosphere, helped by the bar being available. The only improvement could be the wifi signal which isn't great, but other than that it's a very good hostel.

Clean and Spacious - but no charging points in rooms and few people, so very little atmosphere. Loved the Yoga classes and staff are helpful - good location for San Telmo and City Centre

Great hostel, friendly staff, tonnes of activities during the week. Nice rooms with big lockers. Good location, within walking distance of many attractions. Would highly recommend this hostel to anyone, can't really find a negative thing to say about the place.

Would be better with AC and a few more showers. Old building with lots of character. Bar and roof terrace great to socialise

Fairly average hostel, there is no AC so pray you get rooms with windows (only 2 out of 6 on a floor has them), only two showers and two toilets pèr floor. But the staff is really nice and if you have any problems they will help you, they will also help you find things in the city, the hostel has lockers to charge your electronics, good location, very clean, friendly atmosphere.

A Hostel OK. Staff very good. A little big and busy. Communal toilets shared by several rooms. In my room there was a couple who "slept" in a single bed practically naked, and apparently there was no rule to prohibit them. Besides this minor annoyance, the rest was good.

The visit was in every way pleasant. Only the sheets were a bit dirty and there was a huge spider web above my bed which didn't go well with my arachnofobia :D

Quite simply the best hostel I have stayed at........FANTASTIC staff, beautiful old building with a modern interior. In a great neighbourhood in terms of good food and drink options and plenty of intersting cultural things to do and see. FREE Spanish lesson was fantastic also. Really had a wonderful time here, as it was such a nice place to relax and unwind after taking in the best of Buenos Aires.

Very friendly staff and a lovely clean hostel, however wifi does not work in the bedrooms and a lack of plug sockets!

This location is great if you are there for the Sunday market. There are also some restaurants around but besides that, there's not that much. The hostel itself was fun with a lot of backpackers, but the organization system for the rooms was a mess. We had to change rooms twice while we were there and we were only there for a week. The kitchen set up was okay if there aren't a lot of people, but at breakfast it got crowded and sometimes standing room only. The bar in th place was kind of lame.

Found the rooms needed a refurbishment. Was moved rooms at little notice aswell. Otherwise was a really good social place to stay. Lots of freebies such as free Spanish class on Monday and tango class on Saturday. Barbeque evening on the terrace was also good for social and food experience. Staff were useful for information about going to football matches aswell. Lots of places to eat and drink nearby aswell. Is a couple of blocks from the metro aswell.

If you don't make it to breakfast right away, you may as well just forget it and bring your own. There won't be any left and the staff doesn't refill it. Other than that the hostel has great views and good amenities and extra activities.

Very good location, if coming from the airport, it a hour transfer on the public bus. Hostel is large with many floors, but there is a loft, staff were really helpful. Very good facilities. Glad we booked this hostel, we have stayed in over 45 on our trip so far and this rates in the top 10 for sure.

Nice friendly hostel. Plenty of space and nice airy room. (32). The showers were a bit doge, would be good to get a bit more hot water flowing, but otherwise no complaints at all.
