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.

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.
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
good place…ins many activity...
The breakfast is amazing!! Also the free wine every night from 8 till 9. Nice commen room oitside. The only thing there came only warm water outside the tap and the bathrooms upstairs didnt flush. Overall realy good hostel!!
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.
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.
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.

Really nice hostel! There are lots of bathrooms so I never had to wait - I totally appreciated that! But bathrooms are all really worn out (but really clean though!). In fact, cleanliness of the whole hostel was really good. Matresses are really worn out, too. Breakfast is awesome, there are omelettes and pancakes! That´s actually the best hostel breakfast I´ve ever had.
Not great first impressions but the place grows on you. The kitchen/garden area is nice and communal and the breakfast is great. Some of the toilets/showers could do with a bit of a fix up and the rooms onto the road can be a bit noisy, but you're not crammed into them. Free wine of an evening a nice touch
Punto Urbana was great. The breakfast was amazing and they offered free wine at happy hour! Really nice courtyard and the staff were friendly. The only bad thing is that the rooms are super hot. If you are on the bottom bunk you do not get any benefit from the ceiling fan!
