THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. The breakfast is amazing. Eggs and crepes made to order 7 to 10 AM. its a small enough hostel to make good friends. Wine happy hour for an hour. The staff is super friendly, they go to great lengths to help you out. (Gracias, Guillermo!) The security is top notch. Locked away bags and buzz you in all day. Excursions booked through the hostel. Free laundry service. Basically.. just stay here. I cant recommend it enough.


Nice place to relax. Student atmosphere as opposed to backpacker. Pool was empty. Realky nice/friendly staff.

Hello, I do not know in which hostel did you stay because we do not have a pool. This is not a a party hostel but it keeps its sociable side with daily free activities like mate classes, spanish lessons and wine tasting; We also offer bbq and empanadas cooking class to meet the other guests. Thanks for your comment, Punto Urbano Staff


Bunk beds were of very poor quality compared to other hostels of same price, Sheets etc poor, ended up sleeping on top of the bed.

Hi, Thanks for your review, All the bunk beds are pretty new. We changed all of them a month ago. I am sorry you didnt notice it. Regards, Punto Urbano Staff


very good welcome, great staff, breakfeast awsome (pancakes, medialunes, fries eggs, ...), a pacefull patio, good atmosphere, 3 blocks from the main square, a lot of tours and activities organized (spanish lessons free, free wine, bike tours, ...)


Very nice place and very central. Showers could use some fixing, but it's good value for money


On an upside: This is the best hostel breakfast I've ever had. You can chose from different way to prepare eggs to pancakes with dulce de leche. On a downside: The showers and toilets are often combined, so doesn't feel that clean. Many rooms are loud and too warm, no ACs, only fans... finally some plugs and lockers are broken and this can be annoying for the logistics purposes.


We did a trip through Argentina for 3 weeks and this was the most expensive and however the worst hostel we had. We had a room with a double bed right next to the reception. We could here every world spoken in the commun room and especially the door bell the hole night. The room was dirty, sticky and hat a strange smell. Direct next to our window there was the washing machine of the hostel which was working for the hole night! Breakfast was good. Stuff did their work but without fun and pleasure


Very quiet hostel. Staff were'nt very helpful with booking tours or providing us with information about the area. Great breakfast though and handy to have a washing machine to use.


We reserved a private twin room (bunk beds). The bathroom was tiny, dirty and smelled on occasion. The beds were ok for bunk style, but the sheets/blanket were lacking. The rest of the hostel was awesome: free wine at 8:00pm, great staff, clean common areas, etc.


Really impressive - fantastic breakfast! Great location and friendly staff - free wine helps make a great atmosphere too!


Hostel staff are really helpfull! also put on an awesome bbq. Big area out back for socialising!


Lovely little hostel, basic but has everything you need. Pretty little garden, and with the free wine we met some lovely people. The showers are basic and odd as in with the toilet but clean enough and hot water. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.


Clean, cool backyard, awesome breakfast (get the crepes with dulce de leche) but the beds are a bit small and feel dangerous on the top bunk. Also a decently far walk to the main square compared to other hostels in town.


I enjoyed my stay here, the only downside was the traffic noise in the 8 bed dorm. Free washing, great breakfast, free wine, and extremely helpful staff

Hola, We had a serious problem on the pipes that was hard to solve, but we already did it. We have hot and cold water 24/7. Regards Punto urbano staff


Breakfast so far the best in South America. Met really nice people in the hostel. I stayed in the girls dorm. They could renovate the toilets and bathrooms. When I stayed there at some point half of the toilets was not working at some point. Quiet annoying. Garden is great.

We are working on the toilets. Thanks for your review Punto Urbano Staff


Four bed dorm was pretty hot. There was a fan but it looked like the only way to plug it in was to drape the cord over the person in the bottom bunk.

Thank you for your review. We have already solved this issue. Thank you very much for letting us know. Regards Punto Urbano Staff


Very good hostel with nice people and helpful staff. The breakfast is amazing (pancakes, omelets, media lunas, bread, cereals and more). The backyard is cozy and the atmosphere really good. Even though many people stay here, the rooms are quiet and you get a good Night sleep. It would be stupid not to stay here! :-)

Amazing breakfast! Would go here just for that. Walking distance to the centre. Nice patio and helpful staff. Showers ok but not always with hot water. Overall good experience, would definitely come back.
