Internet connection doesn't work inside the room. The shower inside the private room has leaks, so the bathroom turns into a mess.

The location and facilities were great, as well as the activities and staff. One staff member gave us a great pizzeria recommendation (the best in the city!) and even drew us a map so we knew how to walk there. That was so helpful! The breakfast was great, the wifi was pretty stable, and I really loved the atmosphere of the common areas. The only negative was that the shower in our private double room was not clean. But the common area showers were so I used that instead.

The lock on our room didn't work so make sure you use the lockers provided. The roof top bar was good, creating a good social atmosphere. The baggage storage can be a bit of a mission with having to climb over bags to get at yours.

We ended up staying four nights at this hostel. It was good value for money and was probably the cleanest hostel we have stayed at so far in South America. The staff and in particular Joao from Portugal were great. Pretty chilled out hostel with a laid back vibe.

Nice place, the roof terrace is a great place to hang out in the evenings or to have breakfast, and there's also a cosy common area inside. Helpful staff, snd hostel events such as maté tasting and roof bbq make it easy to meet people. The area is good for many of the tourist sites but doesn't feel especially safe to wander round alone at night. It is also very noisy outside at the weekends (or was when I was there anyway), so might not be the best place for getting a good night's sleep!

My stay at this hostel was very positive! Great location, close to Obelisco. The staff was a little under par however, there wasn’t much communication between them, some were new and had no idea what was going on, or some were downright rude. However, the hostel offers some great activities like tango and Spanish lessons as well as mate and asado. The room was nice and clean, plenty of storage in lockers. Not many outlets though. Breakfast was very good! Great place for meeting other travelers!

Great location close to the Subt and clubs. Would be a good place to stay in the week so you can travel around BA using public transport.

Lovely building- full of character. Beautiful lift and staircase. Roof top area which is peaceful. Showers are clean, wifi is good. We met friendly travellers. Draw back was our room was at the front and next to the night club so a bit of boom boom throughout the night. (Us finishing our night at 3:30 was a bit early for BA. Bunks were a bit wobbly but good matresses and clean beds that were made up nicely.

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable, good location. I enjoyed the free tango and Spanish classes. It is noisy on Friday and Saturday nights because of the night club next door, but quiet the rest of the time.
