It's a beautiful house, with typical porteño style. Very cosy - rooms have air condicioting and heating, and the showers are really good. The beds are also very confortable. Complete breakfast, with medialunas, breads, dulce de leche, coffee, fruits, cereals... They change dolars for pesos (1 USD = 10 pesos , actual currency is 8). The location is very good, almost on the corner of 9 de Julio, where you can find subway and bus stations, taxis and walk for a few minutes do get to Av de Mayo.

Even though the room was fairly good, the external facilities were untid;, especially the kitchen, which was a real mess. There was food - such as an opened bag of cereal that was used for breakfast - left all around it, out of the refrigerator and even on THE FLOOR! Staff is quite friendly, but the whole disorganisation really annoyed me.
Good hostel in general. No one spoke fluent English but luckily there was a guy who spoke Portuguese. :) En-suite was good and clean - could have more daylight, but good anyway. Breakfast, though, could be better - no fruit, and nobody in charge refilling the things which finished - either you had to go and TRY to find things yourself, because they were not easy to find or just adapt your breakfast without the things. This was quite bad in my opinion. But in general, it was a good hostel.
