The dorm beds are SO comfortable and the breakfast is wonderful. There weren't lockers available in the dorm room -- I didn't like leaving all my valuables so available.


The French man who runs the hostel is great. He works hard to make people feel comfortable and accommodated in his hostel. His breakfasts are excellent and his attitude is too. The hostel is a ways away from the center of town but metro access is close and easy, so if your looking for an alternative to the hostels in the center of town this is a great one.

Very relaxing hostel. Breakfast is great. Near a metro stop so it is easy to get around. Overall great hostel


Great place to stay! My girlfriend and I booked for 2 nights and ended up staying another. Loved this place, not a party Hostel, very small but feels like your home. awesome breakfast, great security locked gate 24/7, best shower I've had in 10 months travelling and god knows how many hostels. Vincent the owner is a really nice, helped us out a lot and called us a taxi to head off etc. He also has 2 huge sooky dogs who love people. everything was great


The hostel is in a quiet and safe neighborhood in walking distance to the metro, so it's easy to get around. The owner, Vincent, is very friendly and accomodating, and the hostel is clean and pleasant. Definitely a good value. I would certainly stay there again.


Really nice hostel. Location in Floresta is a more authentic way to experience the city than Poblado. Safe and just moments from metro, a grocery store, and local restaurants. Staff were amazing, and they have 2 (very) friendly dogs. My only real complaint is that there are no lockers, but the front gate remains locked and it's a small hostel.


Great place run by a very helpful French owner who was most helpful. Location is in a residential area and very middle class upscale neighbours. Possibly the best breakfast on the hostel circuit.


Yellowhouse was great. Vincent was very helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Very nice hostel. I recommend it for travelers with a tight budget The 6 bed dorm is affordable( 20 000 per night) , very clean. Beds are comfortable. Nights are quiet. The place is really nice, quiet and enables travelers to rest far from the party nights. The included breakfast is really good, and tasty ( eggs, coffee, juce, fresh fruits, toasts with butter and jam) . The owner is french and helpful. The neighboorhood is nice, lots of cheap restaurants and the metro is close


The owner is super nice, very helpful, the breakfast is really yummy and included, but wouldn't go back because it's very (very!) quite ...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Sad to see a so low rating,Nov is low season,means less people and a quieter space,Reviews in july for example explain the exact opposite and people can complain about the noise.Most of hostels in the city propose bars,wimming pools....what we do is smaller and more simple ,and it is true that we love to keep the place quiet.I think the reviews and the descritions expose very well the atmosphere of the house according to anyone's expectations,anyway thanks for the comment it is always useful
