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

The place is beautiful, high ceilings, a pool table, an amazing spot the do some BBQ on the roof. The kitchen is one of the cleanests I've seen during my travels. Due to the extremely hot weather that has been, the stuff brought some fans to the rooms

Guys, this is one of the best hostels I've been to during my trip. The best thing is the stuff, they are very kind and very helpful, you can communicate everything with them easily. It's located in a historical building, so it's a very interesting ambient. And it's very clean. Most of the rooms have it's own bathroon, just two... More

Central location, and I got a private room with bathroom at a very decent price for Argentina. Staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was frosties and two tiny pieces of bread; and the building is a bit worse for wear - my windows didn't close, and the door handle was falling off.

Safe and central location, walking distance to everything. The central sitting patio bear resemblence to a luxurious colonial building, but rooms are basic and bulk beds put close toghether. Breakfast very basic but included in price, which is good. Hostel staff from Buenos Aires recommended this hostel, and you can do MUCH worse in Cordoba. I would stay here again... More
