Terrible service! Upon arrival we asked for a late check-out on the day of departure. This was 5 € per person, but the guy at the front desk said we could pay for one person since we already had paid for an extra bed (we were five people paying for a six bed dorm). On our last day a guy from the reception came yelling on our door and threw us out of our room since we had not paid for a late check-out. We tried to explain but were accused of lying! We had to pay but could NOT return to the room.

We were placed in a separate part of the hostel, just a few blocks away. Therefore we don't know what the main building is like. Our room was better than expected and we have little to complain about. The only thing is that the person at the front desk recommended a restaurant called Sphinx which turned out to be part of a larger restaurant chain serving bad food. So don't ask the staff for advice! Go to Browarmia instead. Great food, very low prices.

Great location, nice common areas, low prices! The rooms are very small, so don't plan on spending any time there during the day. The hot water facilities could also be much better (as most places in Africa). We were lucky to be three friends travelling together, but if you want to get to know other travelers I think you might have some difficulties at this hostel. At least during our stay, a lot of the guests seemed to be permanent guests and spent their time sitting in the wifi-area.

We enjoyed our stay at this hostel. Both room and common areas were nice. During our stay there were two guys making the food. You should definitely try to avoid the biggest of them!! He was probably the most impolite and least service minded person we met during our three weeks stay in the US (except from at the border control).

If you're traveling on a budget, this is the perfect place to stay in Chicago. The hostel is clean and its location couldn't be any better.

The hostel has an excellent location. What I missed was Wi-Fi in the room I stayed, and also outlets where I could plug my phone. These were all hidden behind other beds. This caused me to spend an unnecessary amount of time in the reception area. There was also no ventilation in the dorm, where I think 18 people slept. If the windows were closed during the nights (which some people wanted to keep the noise out) the air inside got extremely bad.

Great staff and good location. The common areas are among the best I've seen in a hostel, perfect to relax in after a long day of sightseeing. The Wi-Fi, which quite often dropped out and required a new log-in, was the only thing that wasn't good enough. This has never been a problem anywhere else, meaning my phone wasn't the problem. If the computers had been free to use this would have been a small issue not even worth mentioning.

The hostel has a great location close to everything! When I stayed there, the bathrooms belonging to the dorm could have been a bit cleaner.

The hostel is located in a quiet neighborhood close to the metro and the beach. The bathrooms were very clean, but the room was a bit filthy and also very small compared to how many beds there were. The mattresses had a plastic cover under the sheets, which made it a bit uncomfortable during the nights.

Thank you for staying with us and for writing a review. Our cleaners clean the room once daily, but if someone is sleeping they can't clean as well. Sorry if that was the case. Most of the plastic cover have been removed, but they are there for hygienic reasons and now be put another layer below so it won't disturb. We hope to see you again! Best regards, CabanaCopa

On arrival the staff did what they had to do, and nothing more. There was no introduction, so we had to ask for every small detail that we wondered about. We stayed in a small room where the beds occupied all the space. When having a shower the whole bathroom floor and a part of the floor under the beds became completely wet. The location is great though.

We would definitely recommend everybody to choose this hostel! The staff is very helpful, and on arrival we got a detailed introduction to what we could do in Buenos Aires. The best thing about the hostel is the rooftop terrace where you can have a drink while enjoying the view. Good breakfast!
