Overall I liked Viejo Telmo and appreciated that it wasn't another soulless commercial hostel filled with international backpackers. That said, travelers should be aware that things may not go perfectly smoothly. When we arrived they had no record of our reservation and wanted to send us to another hotel until we produced confirmation email with deposit. They found us a different room at the same price. Staff were laid back and nice. No internet in rooms and breakfast was pretty mediocre.
We arrived late and they forgot our reservation. the guy at the reception was not really helpful. In the end he found an other hotel for us and he promised us that it will be the same price and the prepayment will be considered. When we arrived at the new place nothing was like promised. The owner of the new hotel tried to speak with Viejo Telmo, but they didn't want to give us our money back. Just the next day when we went there we got finally our money back. So it was not a nice experience!!!
