My wife and I have been on the road for over 3 months with 3 kids. We regularly book in hostels and are not picky on lodgings. But we left Hostel Sol after one night. It is not a place you want to go to, unless your only criteria is low costs. The place looks nice on pictures but don't... More

Next to the Subway(1 block) and close enough to the bus station(2/3 blocks). The owner is very nice, the only problem was that they only clean the room when you leave, so in the end the room was a mess.

This was the first place we stayed in Buenos Aires before eventually moving to BA Soho Rooms in Palermo. The overall impression we got on this place is that it's geared more towards younger people looking for a party environment. There are tons of people there at all times, day and night. Definitely not quiet, but could be good if... More

Nice stay in this Hostel. If you are looking for a bed and maybe found some companion for a city tour this might be the hostel. From Bus station you just need to catch a bus directly to the door. Very easy to get around by bus and staff can help you with general tips. The accommodation is nice for... More

It is good value for the money - I only payed 40 Argentine pesos for a dorm. Despite that it is clean and it is nicely decorated with a lot of light, high ceilings, a good kitchen and a nice patio. The breakfast is bad: they serve Danish and coffee. The location is fine. It is central but at the... More

Inexpensive compared to other hostels in BA, but it's cold, noisy at night, and in a fairly unsafe neighborhood. The breakfast was decent, and the showers were hot, but nothing was very clean or comfortable.

Hostel is very easy to find. After reaching the gate and ringing a few minutes we got access to enter the building. The owner sitting at the reception desk hadn’t noticed for about half an hour that we want to check-in and kept talking on the phone. If don't care about details like toiled cleaned maniana (everyday maniana?) ;) it... More

Hello everybody!!! I've stayed at the Hostel Sol last September. Just can say that I wish I could stay longer. Economic and party hostel. The staff - I mean Johnny - is amazing! Great hospitality. The social area is huge, it makes easier to meet people. The bathrooms and the cleaning are not that amazing. But good enough. At all... More

We arrived late and after travelling all day we were looking forward to get some sleep. Unfortunately, the other guest (a group of 10-15 Argentines) decided to have a party till around 4am. No actions were taken by management even though we asked them to keep a bit quiet (even with earplugs we could hear the screaming, singing and shouting).... More
