Great place for young people who don't care about comfort. The place is clean but old. Showers and toilets are in a good state. One can play pool and hang out in some kind of huge livingroom. Moreover one can book all the excursions around salta directly at the hostel. Small breakfast is included!

Woke up around midnight to a hostel staff member going through my friend's backpack with my friend's cash in his hand. Fortunately, I think I startled him and he put it back. He was also living in our room! No lockers in the rooms. He was the only staff member working at the time, but we later informed the management.

Best value in Salta! Nice place. Rooms are nice, the toilets are clean and the staff is really friendly. The hostel is in the city center, near all the attractions, bars and bus stop. If you get to Salta and they approach you when you get off the bus... Don't hesitate! It is the best place you can go!

Although rate is very cheap I was expecting a basic but adequate service according to the web site marketing . Don`t trust them, it`s nonsense ! Place has no maintenance neither much cleaning. Bathrooms without toilet paper and there were no napkins at breakfast. Worst of all, it was so cold that you have to stay with coat inside, because... More

Not the best place to stay if you would like to relax and get a good nights sleep while traveling. Cheesy 90s music playing until late at night which forces other people to scream to each other. People smoke "inside" (place doesn't have a real roof so its not technically inside i guess, but still is very annoying).

we arrived at the hostel very late, it was okay. Bed was uncomfortable and the lines were dirty! Bathroom was okay. Breakfast was very basic. Staff was nice and computers and internet worked well. When we arrived with the cab the taxi driver had no change, so we asked at the hostel if they had smaller money, so we could... More

What I did like about this was that the staff were nice and friendly. What I didn't like was everything else. My room had huge glass windows and a glass door that provided zero sound barrier which is great when the staff don't stop pumping out music from the office til after midnight and start again some days at 7.30...

Staff was nice and helpful, location was good. Breakfast was complete, with yogurt, fruits and cereal beside basics. The kitchen and bathroom facilities and the beds could be better. But there was hot water. SMOKING should be limitted to open areas like the patio, instead to the whole hostel. Still Salta is to be visited in 2D/1N, and move on... More

This hostal is simply very good. The entrance and public spaces are attractive and the service is good (in English also). The only let down was the basic breakfast (bread and coffee again!) and perhaps our room was a little dark. Our room was also next to the public area where the staff like to watch tv until 1am or...
