I stayed in a private double with ensuite. The private rooms are at the back of a communal courtyard which affords lots of privacy (maybe less so in the warmer months when people might be outside). The hostel is in good condition worth large, pleasant communal areas and good facilities. Staff are polite but not overly friendly or helpful. Breakfast is terrible - coffee, bread and spreads only...


Kitchen equipment was quite limited. Bathrooms were a bit grubby and very humid due to the abscense of any ventilation. Staff were however nice and the atmosphere was very dependant on who else is staying. I really like San Telmo as a location.


Loved our stay in Puerto Limon. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and nice outdoor area. Rooms and bathrooms are basic but clean. Would definitely recommend the weekly BBQ. Breakfast is basic, but for the price you really can't complain.

Nice chilled out hostel in good location of San Telmo. Very good security. Loud construction work going on next door at moment but that is only temporary and not there fault. Internet is hopeless, really hard to connect, but once ur connected it's fine. Overall a good hostel and would return.


Really good hostel, so confy! Large dorm and big lock. The location is perfect and really nice staff. Highly recommended!


The hostel is more for party-people, not my style. There is music all day and night long, what can be a problem when you are trying to sleep. But I didn´t have problems, it was okay. It had air conditioner in my room, what was good (I could close the window to avoid the music). The breakfast is very simple. It´s very close to the San Telmo fair on sunday, but a little bit far from other atractions.


Great staff, good breakfast, nice lounge area. Only downsides are its a bit out of the way on the edge of San Telmo and it felt a little bit sketchier of an area.


Not much to complain about, except for the noise from the construction work from the neighbours. They started at 7 am and woke up the whole hostel. The hostel manager told us that it would last for 2 more months so if you book à room here you should check out when the renovation stops. Otherwise, great hostel!


Good valued hostel, kitchen was excellent. A little noisy if you get a room facing Chacabuco, otherwise no complaints.


Excellent hostel. Good atmosphere, great staff, fun time.


Very nice hostel with good social atmosphere. Place was very clean with big kitchen and plenty of space to cook. Good location, only short walk to shops and restaurants in the area. Cheap laundry service and returned the same day. Average breakfast. Showers have good pressure and are hot.


Very chill hostel in San Telmo area. Breakfast is simple with bread, butter, jams, coffee, tea, and juice. The common areas include an indoor and outdoor space, and the staff are helpful and accommodating; they let us keep our things in the room way past checkout because we had a late departing bus. Great vibes here, and lots of cool repurposed things. Definitely recommended


Not a party hostel, but has a good sized common space with a little garden. Friendly staff and felt very secure. Good beds and comfy pillows. Can recommend it.
