Hostel is located in the heart of the nightclub strip. Staff was friendly and bathrooms were clean. Back courtyard is great for chilling on the grass during the day. Don't expect to get a lot of sleep here, but we met a lot of really nice peeps from all over Argentina.

This a brilliant hostel for people who either don't need or want sleep, or anybody that enjoys spending prolonged periods in the dark. On offer is a 4 bed cave, complete with an extractor fan to the beer store for the bar above, in place of any windows. If that's not your cup of tea then why not try the... More

The hostel is in a great area (restaurants and bars everywhere outside your front door) and the supermarket is about 10 minutes walk away. - There is a gym a few doors away from the hostel with a day pass for 50 pesos - There is a meat shop over the road with good prices and also has wood for...

Recommended place! Nice rooms, very nice garden with a nice pool, and very nice staff. The hostel is located just in the middle of the restaurant-area with a fantastic variety of bars places to eat and enjoy. However, the hot water was more or less absent.

Damajuana is the place to be if you're in for meeting new people. It's located on a mainstreet full of bars and restaurants (it has its own downstairs, which make it a bit noisy). I spend pretty nice time there, very convenient location and reasonable price! There I met a person whose advises were extremely helpful when I was in... More

Hot water and good wifi, friendly staff who helped with tours (I did bikes and wine, had a great time!), and good location on street with lots of restaurants and bars and within walking distance of the centre. The barbecue on the Friday night was also a nice way to meet other people in the hostel. BUT I could not... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Really glad to know you enjoyed our bbq, tours and the hostel atmosphere in general.

After hearing good things about this hostel from friends that had stayed here previously and from reading the mostly positive reviews I was expecting good things from Damajuana but it didn't live up to expectations. The dorm was like a cell in the basement with windows that looked on to the street which meant it was very noisey...the locals also... More

The amazing swimming pool is the standout feature here, and the gorgeous gardens have lots of grass to lay about and soak up the sun (and let's be honest, when you're so close to the vineyards and amongst the bars, it's nice to have a hostel you can hang out at while you recover from the inevitable hangovers). Lots of... More
