We stayed in Puerto Limon for one night in a private room with an ensuite on a high floor. First of all the hostel is in a great location and feels safe. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. They did their best to answer all of our questions and were really helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and... More

I stayed here for almost a week and it was great. The loction is pretty central, but off the beaten path so very quiet. The decor and atmosphere of the hostel are really nice and very inviting. The staff is pretty nice, breakfast is basic, but good, and my room was really nice. I was in a double private on... More

Great location and friendly staff! Excellent place for meeting people, but not so much if you want to get lots of sleep as it can get very noisey! Really enjoyed our stay here, everyone one was really nice and it's a good place to get in some Spanish practice. The staff really appreciate you trying no matter how terrible you... More

We spent one week in Puerto Limon hostel in San Telmo, it was the best decision we made in our trip on Argentina. The hostel is really chill and cool. The staff is friendly and the roommates were alsa great people. Don't miss this place.

No guarantee of internet, doesnt work more than it does work. Because of the way this place is designed if there are people awake enjoying themselves you will not be able to sleep. The sheets/towels/pillows smell like old mouldy rags and the room smells like bleach?? It is not worth the price. Should come with an age warning; 21 and... More

Very friendly, English speaking and nice crowd.. I love the neighborhood, it is colorful and pretty safe, walking distance from the Antique fair and the weekly Tango dancing, Milonga. Easy access to the metro and buses, to great restaurants and and activities. The kitchen is not very clean, the atmosphere is lovely. Nice lounge and large back yard. The price... More

The front of the hostel currently is covered with scaffolding. The main area has a really cool feel and is like a renovated warehouse type situation. Our room was a fairly standard triple, however the toilet leaked out the back when flushed. We didn't notice this for ages because there was no water for hours after we checked in due... More

Hostel had a nice public area to drink or eat something. Staff was friendly and willing to help. However, our room (double, private bathroom) was not clean at all. Bathroom had fungus all over the place and even made a hole in the ceiling that leaked when it was raining. Breakfast was poor.
