Nice place, helpful staff. Though, some itens could bring more comfort like good fans, doors that close well and more attention paid to noisy people. Several services available but some are expensive (bike rent for example). I recomand it though.

....I don't think id stay at any of their other hostels either. This hostel didn't blow me away at all - which is what I was expecting from the reviews I'd read. It has the potential to be much better. Room 1 is so loud you will find it almost impossible to sleep, we ended up at 2am requesting we... More

I really recommend this hostel. It's too spacey, there's a garden with birds inside of it , the staff is super helpful and lovely and the night always is a great party in front of the garden area. Breakfast is good and fair. The only thing I guess it's a problem is when you want to sleep "earlier" (about 11pm... More

Great atmosphere, good installations, great location. Personal were very prepared. I would go to a private dorm with my gf but when we booked we didn't know she was pregnant, so we thought about canceling the booking because the city is very hot, so that they offered us another dorm with air conditioning with no additional cost. Unfortunately we couldn't... More

We had a nice stay at the hostel and the crew was really friendly and helpful. We were lucky we weren't sleeping adjacent to the garden because there was something going on every night. This made our stay definitely much more pleasant, keep this in mind. The lockers under the bed where spacious enough to store both our backpack and... More

This hostel is in a great location, near bus stops to both Tres Cruces and the airport. The staff were very helpful from the moment I walked in – note that you might need to interrupt them from their private conversations at the front desk to help you, but they WILL help you ;-) Great open plan, airy and plentiful...

The Viajero is a nice place with a good travellers' vibe. However, I opted for a double-room and got No.2, which must be - I would hope - the worst they have to offer: It felt like sleeping on the street, getting all the noise from outside, while also getting a fair share of the reception area's noise. Plus at... More

Unfortunately our stay here ended up being a bit poor. Our first night was fine and we received a fairly friendly welcome, and were then left to our own devices. Unfortunately on the second night there was a birthday party at the hostel that continued until after 3am at a noise level that was bordering on the ridiculous. Worse, the... More
