The staff and services provided in the hostel were second to none. The rooms were large, spacious, cool and cleaned each day. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and catered to your every need. The area itself is very safe, I would definitely recommend this hostel.

I can't say enough about the incredible staff and environment. I met the most amazing people from all over the world whom are now considered family. The staff does a great job engaging guests prompting unity amongst travelers from all over the world. I love this company and will continue using Che lagarto as my 1st choice in hostels.

Nice people, but I did not like this place, The hotel is really noisy, the rooms are very close to each other which means it is noisy.There are better options out there, also with higher prices, the rooms are dirty with bad odors. Don't go to this hostel!

Really nice hostel with an amazing environment, nice staff and great rooms. It is a really nice place to stay in BA! Good internet and amazing garden where you can chill and enjoy the hot nights! It was a really good experience to be in Che lagarto!

We arrived on December 27th when it was crazy hot in Buenos Aires. No shared dorms had AC so it was almost unbearable to sleep or even stay inside. The bathrooms were always dirty and the beds and matresses were really old. The bar doesn't have anyone working in it and the TV "room" has only a old couch for... More

We stayed in Che Lagarto for a total of 3 nights and shared the room with 10 other people. Pros: Breakfast was pretty good. Good location. Friendly and nice staff. Cons: Music is pretty loud at night and it was very warm in the room so we had to keep the windows open, or else you have to use a... More

Everything about this hostel is average. Cleanness, staff, breakfast, location, beds. Dorms are really big and not cozy at all. There is definitely not enough bathrooms for such a big hostel and it would be nice if lockers were in better condition but for the price it is ok I guess.

This hostel was not as good as Che Lagarto in Santiago. We had problems with our booking (not our fault), then the receptionist made a mistake when taking our payment ( this was sorted the next morning). Not that clean, our towels and bed linen were dirty, not that comfortable and reception area very noisy. Our room was not smelly... More

It's a nice place overall if you don't spend much time in your room. I initially got a good room - it did't smell bad, it had big windows, but then i switched and the other room smelled really bad. It doesn't have only two small windows and one of them doesn't open.. The staff was very nice - good... More

We stayed in Che Lagarto Hostel for 4 nights during our time in buenos aires. The first impression of the hostel was fine. Though we had some trouble with our reservation (not due to our fault) we quickly got our rooms and the breakfast there was great! But the rooms themselves where smelly and dirty, and the bathrooms were a... More
