    Very friendly staff! The rooms were the cleanest we’ve seen at any hostel in Argentina so far. Rooms were quiet at night, so you could go to sleep early if you wanted to. Overall, highly recommended!

    Cool hostel, well located and had all the facilities. The rooms were very loud though, creeky doors and thin walls didn't help with a good night's sleep. Overall it was a great hostel though.

    Pros: Helpful staff, clean hostel, comfy beds and spacious dorms. Can book buses through the hostel which is great (bus station is outside the city), and multiple day trips too. Lots of nice areas to socialise/chill, although not much socialising was going on when we were there. Cons: Can’t use the kitchen for breakfast (only after 12pm) - you have to pay for breakfast if you want any. The shower leaked into the whole bathroom so the floor was soaking.

    Definitely wasn’t my favourite hostel. The Rooms are a bit too crammed, the heat was always on at night- no need for it. I Didn’t get much sleep when I stayed there, the doors, beds were all creaky so there would always be noise. That being said the breakfast in the morning was fast and the staff were very helpful and kind.

    It was so hot! They have the heating on the whole time even in the dorm room with 8 people in and only a tiny window which made it really hard to sleep. The room itself was ok, 2 lots of toilets and showers which is good. The staff were nice and gave a good recommendation for dinner. But I wouldn’t stay again because of the heating unfortunately.

    Super medewerkers die helpen, meedenken en advies geven zonder daar zelf baat bij te hebben. De achtpersoonskamer was viezig, zonder grote kluisjes (dus backpacks moesten onder het bed) en als laatst geen slot op de deur. We zijn na een nacht geswitched naar een privé kamer. Deze was netjes, schoon en erg fijn!
