The bathroom was quite dirty.In the morning they cleaned and that was the only time of the day I could have a shower, otherwise later was a disaster. We decided to book it for the high rates, but I cannot believe how they get it!!!!For sure I won't be back and would never recommend it!!!!!

We're very disappointed that our hostel was not as clean as expected. We have people cleaning in the mornings and in the afternoons. Sometimes what happens is that people use the shower and they make a mess because they don't use the curtain properly so the floor gets wet a lot. For us the most important thing is to have... More

This is a well located hostel, with a nice atmosphere. The staff is always willing to help. Per USD 10 you get a great breakfast, comfortable mattress and good location. The cleaning is good, We always saw someone cleaning the floors and bathrooms. Choose the dorms upstairs, they have balcony and are very spacious

This was by far the worst hostel we've stayed during our trip and we (and every other guest we spoke to) could not believe that this hostel reviewed such high ratings. Actually this hostel is the reason why we started reviewing hostels! The dorm we stayed in was at ground level next to the reception. There was music, light illuminating... More

I've spent 3 weeks there. First in this room 1 and after a week I came back from Saint Paul in the romm number 5. Until this moment everything was so fine! Great STAFF, well located, and clean. The thing is, after a week in a room, they offered me a dorm. I don't use to do dorms because I... More

the hostel has absolutely no atmosphere and is really boring and depressing. the breakfast is extremely basic and the rooms are very very noisy especially if youŕe staying near reception. Do not go here especially if youre a solo traveller as you will not meet any one. Perhaps it might be suitable for people looking for some peace, quite and... More

Nice enough place, staff were great, room was a good size location right in San Telmo. Have to say its noisy but, super noisy. Wooden floors throughout, and the common areas aren't really separate from the rooms so it's noisy. Door slamming seems to go on all night and then begins at 6am. With loud conversations and all the rest.... More

The hotel is nicely located in San Telmo, close to the metro and a few blocks from Plaza Dorrego. It's an old house which causes the hotel to be extremely noisy. It surprises me this isn't mentioned in many other reviews. You can hear people talk, screaming, have sex, cleaning, everything. During the night it's quite quiet but the noise... More

I stayed in the Hostel Inn for 5 nights in a female dorm and overall I enjoyed my stay. The staff at the front desk are very freindly and helpful, they called the port for me when I had an issue with my ferry ticket which I really appreciated. The bathrooms are cleaned every day and the breakfast is basic... More
