    Staff are awesome, welcoming and helpful with anything you needed. Rooftop bar is an awesome place to chill, epic views of the city. Location by main road and easy to walk to San Telmo or the Plaza de mayo etc... Only complaint is that the wifi didn't reach the 3rd floor. Amazing hostel one to stay in for any amount of time spent in BA.

    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!

    Nice place in a historic building very centrally located. Negative: Checkin at 14:00 but cklening staff arrives on or after that time so you have to wait even longer until they are finished. My girls dorm: VERY noisy. Window to street could not be properly closed, traffic starts very early and busses are very noisy. Bathroom: toilet seat has been loose for 3 month, remained unfixed. Light too dim to do anything. Door could not be locked. Empty bottles not removed for weeks. No trashcan in room.

    Very average. A lotta flyers of activities but nobody really knows if it would happen or not; Frontdesk ppl don't really care if they could help me with various things; Facilities are average. Came with LonelyPlanet recommendation, left with disappointment.

    It's got a cool vibe. Great rooftop. Staff were a little clicky and it's the one of the few places I've ever had clothes go missing. All in all though it's not a bad place to stay. The bunks could do with an upgrade. They do organise loads of things to do.

    A pretty old place in need of a revamp. Bathrooms are old and mouldy and beds uncomfortable with old stained sheets. WiFi didn’t work when I was there. Only one accessible outlet in the whole room which was in the bathroom.

    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.
