One of the below average hostels in Buenos Aires. The location of the hostel ist great, but that's basically it. The rooms are old and not so clean. Our room was also very dark. The staff is OK but not great. We switched to another hostel after one night; so we can not say much about the vibe of the... More

I spent one night there in a double room. Bathrooms were clean even if quite wet because of the showers. My room was ok, nice people at reception. The hostel is well located in the hearth of san telmo. For the price it's a good deal in buenos aires.

The staff are very friendly and helpful but the hostel is not at all well looked after. There are dirty, smelly floor mops pushed in every corner, the bathrooms are not cleaned very often and the kitchen is ridiculously small. The dorms are not clean- dust piled up under and on top of lockers in the room. But the summon... More

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

Hi guys, We are sorry that you didn´t have a pleasant stay in our hostel. As the receptionist tried to explain, we have different types of rooms for different types of travelers. Some are for people wanting to meet other people, others are for the quiet solitude types. If you had said something in the middle ot the night, we... 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
