I ended up at Alvear almost by accident and was glad for it . I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom which was small but comfortable and clean . The staff were really nice, the kitchen facilities were perfectly adequate , wi fi was good by local standards and the cost was excellent (A$150 for the room) .... More

Lots of room for improvement at this hostel, starting with the bathrooms, which are primitive and soooo passe! The staff are friendly and accommodating, but there are intimidating notices "forbidding" (poor choice of word for me!) various activities, mostly common sense (no smoking), but the interdiction on bringing any kind of drink in from outside the premise is purely to...

Liked: Really nice and helpful staff, the style of the building is really nice and we had a nice room with a small balcony, Very good location. Disliked: Kitchen and bathrooms were not really clean and you are not allowed to bring ANY drinks from outside the hostel which is a little annoying

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 stayed here for just one night en route to BA. The staff were really friendly and spoke english. They were really nice and let us check in at 7 in the morning after we arrived by night bus. 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
