    Staff was amazing! They helped us a lot and were also really nice to hang out with. It was a bit quite, but that was due to low season. Facilities were nice. Only thing that could have been better was the food available. Except for that: perfect!

    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

    I only stayed a couple of nights in this hostel - the terrace is nice and the building is cool. There’s a good terrace and good location. The rooms were quite dark, the WiFi worked in reception/ the social areas but not very well in the bedrooms and the showers in the upstairs bathroom were all cold. The security to get into the building is good but the lockers in the rooms are tiny. The staff were friendly.

    It was good for the price, but it was nothing special. The main problem was that the staff did not seem to know what was going. Basic questions such as how much does breakfast cost, where is my room located, do you accept credit cards were unable to be answered. Everyone that worked there did not seem to know what was going on . There seemed to be a lot of activities you could do, but none were free. Hostel is good if you do not want to spend time there and want a cheap place. Not a "fun" hostel

    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
