The breakfast is really yummy and located centrally near the obelisk. highly recommended! I traveled here way back in the day (Jan 2012) and I had to... More

50 peso deposit for the sheets but well worth it! Huge place with very friendly staff, a bar and bartender! Great place to be social (see name of hostel) and meet people. Not ideal for families or kids. There was some construction on the street just outside my dorm room which was noisy in the AM but the hostel can't... More

good position, very close to the obelisco and the metro station, very clean and full of good atmosphere. a bit noisy but not more than you would normally expect from a hostel. loved the free breakfast with dulce de leche and fresh orange juice, and the small balcony where I had breakfast every morning. If I went back to BsAs,... More

This was the biggest hostel I stayed in while in South America and is the place where I met the most people and made the best friends. Breakfast was DELICIOUS! Dorms were clean and well ventilated. Storage with locks as well. Showers were basic but good, TV area and the Tango lessons downstairs were awesome. FANTASTIC location, close to everything.

Hostel is in a good location and is pretty clean. Breakfast is OK but is pretty basic. Annoying thing is having to register to use the internet, then constantly having to sign in again and again in the middle of using it. Staff could have a better knowledge of things to do in the city.

few metters from the obelisco, with Carrefour shop in the next door, and very close from the subway. The break fast was a little poor, but had a dellicius "Dolce de Lecche" that I loved. Good price, that aceept payments in USD, € and BRL.

We've been staying at ideal social several times so we can make a pretty accurate review of the place. Great location, clean for the price you pay, and nice and friendly cleaning staff are the main positive points. Moreover they do make prices with get south or others promotional vouchers. So why such a bad rating? The staff... Not friendly... More
