    Friendly, old world charm, convenient. Close to Subtle (subway), buses & Plaza de Mayo. Enjoyed talking with other travelers in the beautiful atrium. I stayed in a private room with bathroom twice in October. First room (303) charming window pane door opened to a street although noisy in early morning Considered changing locations upon my return but returned for the location, helpful staff & welcoming atmosphere. Next room 405 was quieter with a window facing another direction.

    Beautiful hostel with very helpful and friendly staff! The main areas we really nice and clean with lovely plants everywhere and we really enjoyed the roof terrace. The rooms were okay but there weren’t any plugs near the beds only two high up above the wardrobes and one in the bathroom. The only downfall was that sound travels but I guess that will happen in any hostel. Would definitely stay again!

    The hostel was set in a beautiful old building. Didn’t feel like the cleanest hostel, beds, bathroom and kitchen could do with a bit of cleaning but we loved loved loved the yoga on the rooftop everyday. The activies everyday were great for free and the vibe and atmosphere of the place was calm and cool. Would definitely recommend to people wanting to relax whilst in Buenos Aires.

    The hostel staff are amazing very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere there is nothing special about people was not really socializing during my time there. The only negative point goes to the cleaness situation they really need to improve this.

    Overall I liked the hostel, unfortunately I cant give a good rating because my friend and I got locked out of the building and were left stranded in the street at 1am. I went down the street to the milhouse hostel and hung out with the people there to bide the time but when we finally were able to get into the building at 5am we were worn out and still had to check out at 11 the next morning. Cant recommend this hostel after that.
