    This hostel has a really cool vibe and staff, and it's close to good restaurants, bars, and the market at San Telmo. The facilities are very clean, however, we never had hot water for showers.

    My boyfriend and I spent a few nights in the hostel, we booked a private room with double bed but got two single beds that were put together. Besides that, the room was nice and clean, staff was friendly and some more helpful than others. A dining area seems to be missing but there is a rooftop terrace with bar which is probably really nice in the summer.

    We stayed in the triple room, it was large enough but quite noisy as the noise echoed through the hallways. The curtain covering the door was almost see-through so there was little privacy. Otherwise the facility was clean, bathroom was alright the showers are hotter upstairs. Breakfast was offered for an extra price. There is a small fruit market across the road and supermarket and laundry a few blocks away The staff were helpful and answered all our questions. Booking activities was easy

    Hostel had a great atmosphere, bar area was good and they had a live band on whilst we were there. Plenty of space in the hostel and the value is really good. Breakfast was good too. If you want to read what we would recommend doing whilst there, then visit our blog

    My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights. Nice no frills hostel, the staff were friendly for the most part but not overly helpful. A word of warning - the kitchen facilities are not good. There are no plates or mugs to eat from, just a few cups. We asked for two plates to eat our dinner from and were told that they don't have any (even though they serve breakfast and pizzas upstairs) so we had to eat straight from the pan. Bar upstairs is not great -Wouldn't stay again for the price we paid.

    The staff in this hostel were very nice which made up for the uncleanliness inside. The kitchen facilities were disgusting - the smell that came from the kitchen was awful and it looked unwell. Me and my friend couldn’t cook or leave food in the fridge, every time we went into the kitchen we had to hold our breathes. However the kitchen was cleaned in the morning by the cleaning staff but somehow it always ended up in a mess and the smell never faded! Also no air conditioning in the rooms!!!!!

    Staff were rude and shown a total lack of hospitality. From the very beginning all what they were concerned about was squeezing our wallets as much as possible. Hostel seems to be cheap when booked, but when you add all the unexpected charges, it is very expensive. Zaira in particular was maybe the worst receptionist I've ever dealt with.

    It was a mess. I’ve paíd two nights from 15th to 17th without staying. I was in Chile and i have a problem with my flight Due to that I arrived to Buenos Aires on 16th at night when I arrived to the Hostel I realized That my private room was relocated to some one else but they charge me two night without staying. I felt extremely cheated and of course dont like the bussiness that they do with my money. I was stranded in Buenos Aires at night. It was a bullshit
