The hostel is well located, but accommodations are not good in first floor. One of the bathrooms discharge did not work the other day and did not warm water. There isn't wi-fi in the bedrrom. Worth paying a little more to stay in Florida.

First stop in South American 6 month trip, and was very impressed with the place, very clean, very friendly hostel staff. Very much recommend the walking tours the hostel puts on for free. However, it wasn't till I left it came to my attention that my malaria tablets were stole (which makes some parts of my trip difficult)...I can only... More

This hostel is so so good. Breakfast has bread and spreads but also fruit and yoghurt, huge rooms with high ceilings and fantastic bathrooms. Great wi-fi, lots of computers to use, great book exchange, enormous common area, a DVD room, small kitchen is the only downside. Great wi-fi, lots of help from staff if you need it for booking things.... More

Stayed here for the second time and would recommend this place. Good hostel option right in the middle of town on Av Corrientes. Staff are always friendly and Julietta was particularly so. Everyone speaks good English. Breakfast a bit average but rooms are clean and they have a left luggage room too. Recommended.

We stayed in a twin room which was spacious and clean. The shared bathrooms were clean part of the time. The breakfast was clinically good - similar to elsewhere in Argentina. What was disappointing is the level of friendliness and hospitality on hype front desk. We stayed with the hostel three separate times during our stay as we used it... More

There is no air conditioning or wifi in the rooms. We were there during a heat spell and we only had on fan between 6 people. Many of the other travelers were staying there for several weeks at a time and originate from somewhere else in South America. The kitchens are terrible. Wifi is only in the common room, which...

I stayed in the hostel for 2 weeks over summer in December, incidentally the hottest it has been in 43 years. While I certainly wasn't expecting to be pampered, I surely wasn't prepared to be in 35 deg C weather without at least a fan. That was the case in the first few days. When I approached the staff they... More

Stayed in a 6 person dorm for 4 nights. Bunk beds are shaky and unstable and you wake up every time when you bunk bed partner is moving. Beds do not have any railings on them. Sheets on the beds are too short and very slippery, you end up sleeping on bare mattress during the night. Lockers in rooms are... More

Me and my girlfriens spent 6 nights there. The staff is great, they helped us with everything we needed. We stayed in a private room and the bathroom was right in front of it, and was always clean and tidy. They offer breakfast and sell beer and other drinks. You can walk from there to all the atractions in the... More

This hostel offers nothing to rave about, we stayed 5 nights and the toilet was "out of order" for 3 of those nights, so we had to use the one on another floor which was annoying. The breakfast was decent although we only woke up in time once for it. If you are traveling solo this is probably not the... More
