I stayed at the hostel for one night as I missed my connecting bus. The staff are nice enough but the hostel is very dirty. I'm pretty sure my bed had bed bugs, and the bathrooms were unclean. If you are there just for the night then maybe it will be okay.

Overall this hostel is a definite average with a pretty central location in the city. Our room with two twin beds was clean and small, the bathrooms were semi cleaned, the breakfast was a typical Argentina style set up with bread, jam, and coffee. The hostel is only about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus station and a 5-10... More

We have stayed in quite some hostels all over the world, but this was the first one where the only reception we got was "here is your room". We had to ask for bed covers, breakfast or other facilities, including bathrooms, maps of the city, etc... Perhaps we entered at the wrong moment, but we have never seen such an... More

We stayed here for one night. We booked a private room without bathroom wich was good, but very small. But value for money compared to a private room with private bathroom. Good matresses and a clean room. Good shower with hot water. The kitchen and fridge were not clean and breakfast was poor, even for Argentinian standards. The jacuzzi (mentioned... More

As compared to other hostels this is a pretty nice place. Private rooms are available and bunks and privates are inexpensive. During the time I was there the staff spoke English. The place has a friendly sitting area in the front and a nice terrace plus hot tub on the roof. On the other hand, there's no air, and San... More

We stayed various days at this hostel, located near by the city center in the City of San Juan. According to their homepage, this place looked nice and the price was ok. We did get the discount "get south" is promoting. But : The beds are not in good conditions, various of them are fixed badly, doesnt seem to be... More

Two reasons two stay here - cheap private rooms and a nice terass. Otherwise go elsewhere. People that are not guests come and go. Dirty and very unorganized hostel.

we booked two nights at the bed and breakfast. It isn't a bed and breakfast, there is no breakfast, only in the hostel 7 blocks away. no facilities to make hot water or something. A bunkbed and normal bed in a small room, very very cold shower, like a dependance, we don't liked it

We have booked for two nights at San Juan Hostel the 24/25 of february but we stayed only one night because it is impossible sleeping very noisy, no rules in this hostel, people play music, scream, speak at loud voice and all night the bell ring. We have a room without window, so small and not so clean. The manager... More

After two and half months of South America, one of the worst hostels. Rooms without any comfort (bed is two mattresses atop of each other, no other furniture, no bedside table, no hooks for hanging anything, only one working electrical outlet), and the suspicion runs high that the wool blankets have not (ever?) been washed and the bites one of...
