We had a really nice double bed room with our own bathroom. It was very clean. The breakfast was good with bread, marmelade, dulce the leche, juice, milk, cereals, coffee, tea and some fruits. The kitchen is big, but there are not that much dishes and some of them are old/broken. We can highly recommend this hostel.

Big well driven hostel. I had a deluxe single room which was awesome. Private bathroom with a tub, king size bed and AC that didn't leak. Thats a first in Argenina for me! Staff were available a professional. Common areas were fine and breakfast until 10:30 was a plus. A hair in the soup: Had no adapter to make the sockets compatible with european devices. Come on guys! I bet 30 % are from Europe so it cannot come a surprise! I bought at a nearby store (14 AR) one and gave it to them.

Great hostel! Very cheap and good experiences both times I went there. Internet worked very well, and bathrooms are actual rooms with privacy. Bedrooms all seemed quiet and utilized for sleeping only because the common area is gigantic and attractive for people to hang out in. Breakfast was so-so, but beyond that one of the best hostels I've ever been to! A

Based on stay in double with private bathroom. Nice place, good location for exploring San Telmo and La Boca.

The vibe in the hostel wasn't great. The staff were quite unfriendly and they made no effort to be polite. The bathrooms weren't cleaned very often and there was no toilet roll which was really annoying!! I'd recommend staying in Palermo, it is a gorgeous location!

Puerto Limon is a gem in the rough. Though situated in a fairly rough area, the hostel is quite beautiful and has wonderful amenities. It is gated and requires buzzer entry, which provides a great sense of security, and maintains a great atmosphere of residents and staff personnel. The only issue I ran into was lack of soap in the bathrooms; this wasn't a huge deal, but definitely be sure to bring your own. Overall, a fantastic stay!

Great hostel in the heart of shabby chic San Telmo, with (for the most part) friendly staff, a great atmosphere, decent breakfast, excellent kitchen, and dorms which are comfy if a little cramped. The lovely rear courtyard is an excellent place to hang, especially when the staff do one of their evening BBQs. Only whinges would be some of the staff are very moody and rude, and that the toilets get a little dirty near the end of the day. Other than that, this is a fine place to stay.

Good hostel for the one night I stayed in. Clean and well located, 5 minutes from the metro station.

It's a 5-minute walk to a metro station and there is a spacious and cozy common area. There is even a yard where you can drink till late hours, however, if you're after a long flight and your room happens to have a window facing the yard (= people are drinking just a few metres from the window), you probably do not appreciate it. Of course, you can get up and tell off a bunch of drunk people, but I'd say that the staff should take care of this... Anyway, all in all it's a good value for money.

Loved this hostel. Booked a private room for three people and felt like we were in a hotel. Bonus points to the staff for helping us arrange an airport transfer and letting us keep our bags there (and nap on their couch!) until 3 in the morning the next day. Shout out to Lucho for taking us to a great parrilla del barrio our first night in BA. This was one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at, and definitely an unforgettable experience.

Cons: Wifi does not work other than in common area. Breakfast is cornflakes, milk, orange punch, white bread, coffee and tea. Not sure if towels and sheets are cleaned as various hairs are seen. mosquitoes and old mosquitoes carcasses on room walls. Pros: in good area san telmo. good location for Florida money exchange and local eateries and Sunday market. 10 min to subway. Hostel map well made.
