Very nice staff, ambiance and location.


74%

Positives: - Central location, really close to Metro & busses. - large rooms with lockers & room for big bags. - staff are friendly and helpful (a mixture of backpackers and locals). Negatives: - Common area & kitchen areas are loud small & cramped and this was low season without a full hostel. Nowhere else to chill (with wifi). - "Bar" serves beer & opens at 8 but apart from that isn't really a bar. Overall, a really cheap hostel for BA and you pay for the location not the experience.

Only stayed here one night but the atmosphere was awesome and the hostel has a great area to chill out in or have a drink at night - wish we could have stayed a few more nights. On the less positive side, the kitchen is quite small and the showers were in more or less open connection to the toilet (only separated by a shower curtain).

Over all a very nice hostel with friendly staff that would do anything to help you. Good location downtown BA, with walking distance to almost everything. The dorms were nice and so were the bathrooms. Breakfast is ok, not very much food but that's how it is everywhere here. Would definately recomend this place, if you're lucky you might catch a live show in the evenings :)

The best hostel! The rooms were clean, comfortable and had the coolest artwork, the wifi was fast, the showers were hot and powerful, very well equipped kitchen and a really good social area with a great chilled vibe plus a cool terrace. The best thing though was the staff! All so nice and fun with perfect English and couldn't do enough to help. Will definitely stay again!

Good place to relax,internet free,excellent location. You can take a taxi,bus or metro near from hostel. Some tourist attractions are near and you can go on foot. For those who like go out at night,drink some beer and listen to rock/metal there are several pubs around the hostel, some of them with free access. Sometimes the water for take a shower was cold, it was the only thing I didn't like...

A nice place if you have to stay for only one or two nights. Very (very!) simple, my room didn't even had a closet; it was only the bed, a little rack and a fan. The bathrooms were also ok, average. It's located right next to the National Congress and lots of subway stations - be careful at night, not a friendly neighbourhood. Great staff, helped us a lot. It seems like a party hostel. Don't expect much from the breakfast. Check-in only after 13hrs. We paid a reasonable price, so, worth it.

Lovely helpful staff but hostel needs soundproofing, curtains that work and its seems that most of the people staying there actually work there. Location is good

A good hostel for the price. Location is just perfect but atmosphere is wird (for geek only) and personal not really thoughful. We had an issue with our passeport but had no compassion.

This is a party hostel. We did not know that when we booked our stay here. When we came in the evening the girl in the reception was drinking shots with the guests. Next day we came home at 3:30 pm and the staff was playing beer-pong in the living room drunk. The small living room contains three chairs, three tables (if not used for beer-pong), a bar and a tv with couches. And the wifi does not work in the dorms. The kitchen is tiny and the staff are using it so do not count on cooking.

For anyone planning to stay in one place for an extended time, work and potentially study Spanish, I highly recommend BA and this hostel. Even as a short termer I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Great, relaxed and friendly vibe. Strong wifi. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Standard and decent breakfast that ran til late. Helpful and friendly (albeit mostly inexperienced) staff who were willing to search for answers they didn't know; Habib is wonderful, knows all the answers and holds the place together.

Excellent location. Very helpful and friendly staff! We arrived very early and staff still allowed us to have breakfast! Often had some entertainment in the evenings of music playing etc. Bar cheap too considering its in the hostel! Only comment would be the showers they aren't very private as you can see each other as the wall doesn't reach high enough.

The good: perfect location, walking distance of main attractions, subway and restaurants. Wonderful terrace and free bottled cold water. Nice breakfast, with great bread (very rare in Buenos Aires). The bad: bad bathrooms, room looks like a cell (just a bed, a fan and a small table), EXTREMELY noisy from other guest partying until 5am. Had to turn on the fan just to counter the party noise with a more regular noise so I could sleep. Wouldn't stay there another night just because it's too noisy.
