Great location a few blocks from some of Cordoba's main sights, but this place really lacks atmosphere, which is odd as it has large communal spaces, including a roof deck and a pool table. Not great in terms of cleanliness - the bathrooms always seemed to have dirty water on the floor - and the kitchen really could do with... More

Went here because it was suggested in the lonely planet book. it's in a pretty central location and looks pretty good when you first get there - open communal space etc. one of the workers knew English which was helpful, and he was happy to help us. We did get robbed though. Both my partner and myself had hundreds of... More

We had a private room with ensuite. The room was comfortable and the shower was hot. Location of the hostal is... More

This hostel has: a pool table, large rooms (we were in private double), cool roof terrace, decent location. It doesn't have: great staff (one member was sleeping on the floor and lazing around, only got up when bell rang, not helpful), a decent breakfast (has those strange coffee tea bag things instead of real coffee, very basic), a clean kitchen,...

I stayed 2 nights in this hostel, in a single room with shared bathroom. I found the bathroom so so. You couldn't lock the door and on the toilet there was never toilet paper. But the staff was very friendly and easy going. I found it a bit a minus that it looked like there were more people staying in... More

It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk here from the bus station and is relatively easy to find, although it's easy to walk past the door! The hostel is located upstairs on a busy street so rooms at the front are noisy. It's also only a 5 minute walk to the main plaza too and there's a small supermarket next... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the 6 person dorm, it was adequate for a short stay. The facilities were pretty good, good sized lockers, plenty of space in the dorm, lots of communal space (kitchen, tv room) and a nice big patio upstairs. Staff were friendly and it was a good location, 20 minutes walk to the bus station and... More

This is a good hostel, as good as you'll find in SA I'd say..what makes a good hostel here?..no nonsense, clean bed, clean shower, staff who work, and possibly a little bit of breakfast... Eating cereal with a teaspoon, no mugs for a tea, being asked every morning, "James, checkout?"..small potatoes... Real cable TV, freshly painted walls, fan in the... More

Having stayed for two weeks straight I can honestly say that this is a great hostel. The atmosphere is nice, the people are friendly and helpful, it's kept very clean, and to top it all off it's cheap. The six bed dorms at the front can get a bit of noise from the street. I stayed at the big 10... More
