Had a great time, no problems at all.


I arrived at 5am on my arrival day and they've told me I can't wait in the living room, I had to go outside and come back about 10am. Then when cancelled my reserve I had to pay for days I didnt use plus the fee for hostel.com because they say I had to pay it! The worst service ever, I dont recommend this place. I paid for having my lugagge 1 day 80%of the rate I was expected and they've told me it was a favour becAuse I should have paid the whole amount! Don't go!

This hostel is just great ! There's no flaw in this hostel. Lovely living room with balcony, super helpful and well-considered staff (When I find some information like how to get to the fluvial terminal etc., I could get a very helpful information in detail from the counter and it was just as he said !) and cleanly maintained restroom in abundance etc. I was fully satisfied with this hostel !


Staff were very helpful apart from the night porter. It got very noisy a couple of nights that we stayed, yet he did nothing about it. I had to go out and ask people who were shouting and laughing directly outside 4 rooms to quiet down myself. The bedding smelt dusty and was very old and dated. A young staff sat at reception looked up a flight of stairs and up my girlfriends skirt - even after she noticed and got eye contact he continued. Awkward for her after that. Breakfast poor.

Fine hostel near Palermo, Recoletta and Downtown.


Way too many stairs, but overall it was good.


Really enjoyed our stay, ended up extending! Place was spotless, breakfast wasn't just bread an jam like every other South American hostel so that was nice :) staff were really helpful and location felt really safe an was reachable by subway! Definately be back here, thankyou xxx


This was a really comfortable hostel close to the Pueyrreddon and Aguerro Subte stations. You can easily walk to most of Recoleta (the cemetery, etc.) and parts of Palermo (the Alto Palermo mall, etc.). The hostel itself is like a giant house. It's basic, but clean and safe. The breakfast was simple, but good and the staff are super friendly and helpful.
