We spent 3 nights in this hostel, it was very hot in Menoza at the time and the pool and garden area was very pleasant at days end. The young guy on the front desk was super helpful and had great local knowledge. It was a little noisy as it is close to the freeway, also it was around 2ks... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Hostel Chimbas February 2013. Staff were excellent and really looked after you. The garden is a great place to chill in. They provided very good kitchen facilities. Breakfast was pastries and coffee.

The young guy who runs it is really friendly and helpful, and this is probably the cleanest hostel we've been to in Argentina. The garden's excellent too. However, be warned, you're not allowed to use the cooking facilities and they lock the kitchen after they've made breakfast. You still have access to a fridge and microwave but you expect more...

This hostel has a tranquilo atmosphere among guests and is not a party hostel. With space inside and out to read or surf the internet on their reliable wifi, it is spacious and quiet. It lacks comfy furniture to curl up but tables and chairs abound in the large dining rom and back patio surrounded by gardens. The wifi reaches... More

Chimbas excels in cleanliness, number of bathrooms, quiet space, huge kitchen; it's a charming home turned into hostel and the space is comfortable. The refrigerator is quite small and difficult for storing food. It is difficult to locate staff for help, especially for opening the gate to let guests in and out. The major downside is the customer service. Aside... More

Had a lovely stay here in a double room w/ shared bathroom - but bathrooms were always free and spotlessly clean. Everyone here is lovely and so helpful and welcoming. There is a huge kitchen diner and the place is warm and homely. Location is outside of town, but lots of buses in or its a short walk. Being near... More

We had a really comfortable stay at Chimbas. The guys running the show are really helpful and attentative. The house is beautiful and cleaned regularly throughout the day. Ideally situated next to the bus station and a 10 minute bus ride to the central district. You can book all sorts of trips from the hostel which are reasonably price. We... More

My husband and I spent a week here relaxing after travelling extensively through South America. It’s a lovely place with a great kitchen and dining room area – it’s not a party hostel. Our room was clean, had a decent fan and the shower was hot. Although the toilet bin wasn’t changed daily as stated. Wifi is accessible everywhere including... More
