Starting out with all of the good points, the hostel is a humble place, but it has a great location. It's only 2 blocks away from the subway station and from a main avenue where all of the bus stops are. I loved to chill in the bar, the beers are cheap and I met a lot of nice people in there. The staff is great, if you stay there for a little longer, they will make you feel like home, like you have a family. The positive outweighs the negative in every way. Hope you have a great stay.

We thought the staff were very helpful and given the run down nature of the hostel itself, did a marvellous job. WE LOVED THE GUITAR CONCERTS AT THE FRONT DESK AND THE OBVIOUS WARMTH AMONG THE STAFF. sADLY THE TOILETS AND BATHROOMS ARE IN GREAT NEED OF UPDATING.

Had a lot of noise in the room, the room and the bathroom were very dirty. i don't liked the hostel. Not recommend.


This is probably a good place to stay when it's cold, there wasn't much air in the rooms. The downstairs bar was very stuffy, it needs a proper air conditioner Staff were friendly


Good hostel for the money, clean kitchen, average bathrooms but good water pressure. Just not much atmosphere. The twin room we had didn't have a fan or a real sort of window so it was quite hot. Its also on the edge of San Telmo so not and feels a bit dodgy at night. We moved after two nights closer to the centre of San Telmo (worth paying the extra money)

Pros: Cool staff Cons: We went and the air conditioning was broken. Was so so so hot in the rooms, we stayed on the bottom floor and it was like a dungeon. Had a strong smell of sewerage - booked for 2 nights but had to leave after 1. Not recommended


they always organize things to do for dinner time and it's a great way to meet people and enjoy the place


Great spot, awesome staff. Thanks!
