This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in and so cheap! Nice customer service reps who were very helpful and called me a cab when I checked out. The room was clean and private with only 4 beds and out own bathroom and shower. The complimentary breakfast was more than just powdered coffee and stale bread. I really... More

The hostel/hotel is very well located as you are close to Puerto Madero and other attractions from Buenos Aires as Obelisco and Casa Rosada, it is also easy to get to La Boca, Palermo and Recoleta. The environment at the hostel is simply friendly and it has a nice pool and great facilities.

Awesome time in Buenos Aires. I went alone and met great people from all over. My only tiny criticism was the breakfast was way too sweet, some variety would be good. Otherwise a very happy camper and will definitely go again my travels take me to Buenos Aires.

Very cool staffs, comfortable room and it's too nice walk around the hostel, have a lot of things to do! Have a young appearance but can receive a family very well as happened with mine! The breakfast is a little bit poor, but enough!

I only spent a night at the hotel and it's a good place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful and I was able to chill at the hostel until my friend arrived at 9pm. Breakfast is acceptable. It could have been cleaner but all is forgiven when you know that you are within minutes from good restaurants and the... More

The hotel was great, it was as it was shown in pictures, the people who work there were nice and kind, and help us with a lot of doubts that we had. Everything was clean, and in the hotel was a nice place with pool, games, and tv. For the other side, we have troubles trying to sleep, because as... More

Great Hostel, Very gentle staff, clean apartaments. I reserved a private room and I cant tell about security. The location its very interesting, few blocks to "feira de San Telmo" and 20 min to "Casa Rosada".
