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

Very good place for Americans to stay. The staff is accommodating, and I only ran into one member who didn't speak great English. It made it easier asking for directions, and area activities. I'm not typical a fan of hostels but I would recommend this for a budget traveler

This hostel is by far the cheapest and best I've one across. The staff speak Spanish and English very well and are incredibly helpful. They are very accommodating and will even make phone calls for you to book tours or shows. The people who stay here are really chill and you never have problems sleeping since all noise is very...

I stayed here for 10 days in a single room in January. The 2 best things about this hostel are the staff and the price. The staff really go out of their way to provide services over and beyond what I would expect at a hostel and were very patient with my stuttering Spanish. I had a great room -... More

I was recently in buenos aires and stayed at this hostel. I felt that the people at the hostel were friendly and inclusive. The breakfast is very generous compared to other hostels. But above everything the staff were incredibly supportive when my camera was unfortunately stolen. In truth without Marcio, one of the staff, I really don't know what I... More

Yes, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and, yes, the hostel attracts a nice crowd of friendly, but not crazy travelers. Having said that, I was somewhat disappointed by this hostel given its Trip Advisor ranking. First, the location is safe and adequate (a few blocks from the Independencia Subte station and a few blocks further from lively San... More

I have stayed more than 2 weeks in Arrabal and if you are looking for a clean and well located hostal with a sociable athmosphere, I can strongly recommend this place. Special thanks go to the team around Mariana y Marcio who have been always incredibly friendly and helpful.
