Stayed here for four nights. About 15 minutes walk from the main centre so it was very good location. I liked the bathrooms which were spacious, modern and clean. The social areas were also nice and comfortable. A few things which I didn't like was the fact we arrived at 7am after a night bus and we pretty much got... More

Awesome hostel. The staff is super feiendly. The night staff was extremely helpful in sugesting things to do while we were in Buenos Aires. Unlike other reviews we found the night staff member extremely helpful because we had arranged for him to call a taxi for us at 6 am the night prior to our departure. But our alarm didn't... More

We had a great experience at this hostel. The showers, dorms, kitchen and wifi were all very good. Given the weather in BA at the time (which was very cold) everyone was in the one area which made it quite cramped and very, very loud. In better weather more people would be outside and this would be eased. The wifi... More

Good location in San Telmo district, just off Av.9th July. Staff very informative an helpful with great English spoken. Security good. Rooms basic but clean. Couldn't open any window for ventilation which made room a little 'musty' to say the least! Bathrooms and toilets clean though cumbersome design, one wrong move and you'll get clothes wet! Big amount of comfy... More

This hostel was oké, but not awesome. Let's start with the good things: the staff is very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is included and there is always warm water. Quiet rooms, good night rest. All this for a reasonable price. What I liked less: The internet doesn't work in all rooms, you have to go to the communal area... More

Comfortable, clean rooms and great staff who provide useful tips on the city and can help with bookings. Avoid if you're a light sleeper, although it's not exactly a party hostel but there are always people up late downstairs. Breakfast is basic, but does the job. Good location with metro and buses to all parts of the city nearby -... More

The location is really central, easy to get the cheap bus 8 from the airport ( just need to look out for salta street, or Julie 9 is the main road parallel to salta). The staff are very helpful and friendly and the hostel had a good atmosphere

In my 43 countries I have visited, I would put this little hostel in my top 5 easily. Nothing special as in gimmicks but extremely friendly and knowledgable staff, always wiling to hp with ALL matters. This isn't a party hostel as in what many others strive to be but the hostel is there to have a good time over... More

Great hostel with central location and very close to subway line which connects to everywhere. Very clean and comfy beds. Sheets smelled amazing. Staff were helpful and all other guests were good fun and nice. Sad to leave. We wanted to extend but booked out. Only £5 a night which is ridiculously good for BA and the quality of the... More

No complaints about here. 80 pesos for a dorm is very fair for buenos aires. Spacious rooms and big lockers. Plenty of bathrooms and very clean. Hot water was reliable. Kitchen and breakfast were decent. Pool table and lounge area. 24hour helpful staff. Located in a cheap and central place in walking distance to san telmo and close to a... More
