I have spent 3 nights in that hostel. First of all I booked online to buy the membershipcard but the hostel was ¨out of stock¨ so I paid full price and was told to go to another HI hostel to buy the card. Then the people barely speak english and wont try to slow down so you can understand when... More

1. The reception staff is amazingly helpful, efficient, and friendly. They really care about the hostel and the visitors. They do not mind getting involved with a million details of running a hostel, or with any travel problem or question any visitor might have . I interacted mostly with very professional Lucas and very cool Juanito (who are both completely... More

We had a double room (105 with wifi!) with bathroom on the ground floor, in the open area. This area is quite charming and we didn't have major problems with noise. This room had no windows, but the ceiling was high and it didin't bother us. The hostel itself is far from the street so it is pretty calm and... More

Hi Recoleta Hostel is in a superb location and offers lovely rooms and very friendly staff. The barrio of Recoleta is well known for shopping and ritzy things of which I found many. Not exactly a bargain neighborhood but well worth a look around. Also there are plenty of bus routes for getting around to the other parts of the... More

Very nice! -- As long as you are not a pampered princess. Most of the staff are warm and welcoming. Those that weren't, did not speak English but they still would smile and nod. I experienced this when I returned from a wedding celebration at 5am. Probably more related to the time of day than anything else. The cleaning ladies... More

This hostel is not waou for sure and the hygiene is not perfect but this is a good value for money (235$ per night for private room). And the area is very safe and you are close from the famous recoleta cemetery.

On my second trip to Buenos Aires I decided to stay in Recoleta purely because of the area, nothing else. The hostel was in Feb 2012 quite dirty in the common areas of reception/courtyard had cockroaches lying around/kitchen. Aside the cockroaches, the courtyard area is nice place to chill. The dorm room was for 14 or 16 from memory and... More
