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

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

You cant do better for $27! Try to get a room on the first level because the internet doesnt work in the rooms on the top level. I got a private room and bath on the first level (103) for $27 and it was as good as it gets. Hot water, AC, fast internet, friendly staff. I will definitely be... More

Hostel is very clean, staff are very friendly, and we had a very comfortable stay! Only one problem and that was the location. Very central which was awesome however it is not on a main road and as two girls, we did not feel very safe walking to or from the hostel at night! Definitely recommend staying here, just keep...

Great people. They organized asado for NYE. Good location, friendly and very useful staff. I have to say that due to heat wave I was on an airbnb room that suddently run out of electricity and water. So I checked into Hostel Arrabal and got a private room with A/C, which was life saver. They guys at reception are extremely... More
