4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Stayed in this hostel for over a week. I chose it because it seemed less party attitude than some other hostel choices, I was right. Highly recommended if you enjoy your own space or having quiet chats and meeting nice folks. Breakfast lacks variety but appreciated for what it was. Seemed like less English speaking travellers were here than any... More

We can recommend this hostel. The rooms and beds are cheap. The hostel is located in San Telmo, but near to Constitution (an area which should be avoided at night). The staff is very friendly and helpful and some of them speak English. Nice roof terrace and a fully equipped but not so clean kitchen. The rooms are good but... More

The garden and common areas are nice, those were the bits we liked. In general though the whole place is in desperate need of maintenance. You can tell they haven't put any of the profit they make back into up keep for sometime. For instance the piping in the bathroom up stairs was exposed and the bathroom sink was running... More

This was a perfect hostel. Not to big, not to little. Very easy to get interaction with other travellers. The people who are staying here are not the average lets-go-to-south-america-and-party-and-drink-very-cheap, but more the kind of people where you can have a good conversation with. The staff in the hostel is very kind and very helpful. Location is perfect, because it... More

Really enjoyed my stay at garden. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and linen was changed regularly. Also a great location being so close to San Telmo and right on a Subte line. Highly recommend.
