We absolutely loved staying at mate! The rooms were spacious and the private double room was like staying in a hotel. The hostel was clean and comfortable with an extremely nice lounge area but it could get a bit cold. The best bit about it was the staff.. Javier was great, and his enthusiasm really made things easy. Also, the staff were extremely laid back about checking out and luggage storage. Make sure that if you stay here to go to Alta Gracia. The staff can help.
Nice helpful staff, extremely chilled out and laid back feeling and a really safe location. Great patio area and a warm, homely feel to the kitchen and lounge. The bathrooms were great. Rooms are spacious enough. The only real criticism is that the beds are pretty uncomfortable, at least in the twin rooms. Overall a good stay.
Really good, safe location with cheap restaurants and bars nearby. However the hostel itself was cold... Although this wouldn´t be a problem in the warmer months. The beds were ok, and the rooms themselves were extremely spacious, with really high ceilings and it gave the rooms a nice feel. The staff are really helpful, common areas are lacking, but the terrace is very cool.
