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

Definately not worth stopping here , the beds and bathrooms could do with a good overhaul , make sure you have your own sheets and pillow cases as the ones there are disgusting. A couple of the staff were helpful but it seemed like to much hard work fot the others to assist in anything.

The Che Lagarto Hostels are always nice to stay at. The one in buenos Aires is very clean and the staff is very friendly. Really good hostel and i do recommend it. Big rooms which have enough space to move around in and lockers in the hallway for all your stuff. Big company with hostels throughout south america but always... More

we booked a private room here after a bad experience in another hostel, and we came to a nice, clean room without working airconditioning. We liked staying here but the downside was that the staff failed to book us a taxi so we could take the bus to Córdoba Even though we asked them 3 times if it was allright.... More

I liked so much to stay at Che Lagarto in Buenos Aires. So clean, friendly. Close to Avenida 9 julho and Subte. Good rooms and service. If you want to go to Buenos Aires, rest and enjoy amazing times in Che Lagarto (:

The two stars I have is for friendly and really helpful staffs, they helped me book tours/dinner/airport transit. But the rest of other things were lame. Bedroom and bathroom were not clean at all, without air-conditioner in the room, I was suffering through the night, and the tan does not seem to be enough. Very loud at night, and there... More

i guess the crowd in each hostel changes but the hostel seemed boring when i was there. not much happening and not much character. possible because it is newish. But it is clean and well run and in a good location.
