We came to this hostel because of the good reviews we read here, but in my humble opinion this place looks good only in the photos. we had to take the private room cause the mixed dorms looked so messy and dirty. ( woman dorms and privates looked nice though), toilets and showers were dirty, but the worst part was... More

We are a cuple in our thirties, we came after a long trip expecting to nap a little, we took the private room and 50 minutes after we paid (first time ever we where asked to pay in advance in arg) a ping pong table materialized in the patio rigth ourside our room. Needless to say napping was imposible. So... More

This is a great place to spend your siestas in Salta. When the midday heat makes walking the streets unbearable it's nice to have a shaded and colourful homestead to pull up a hammock and relax. The staff are great and really helpful, especially the owner Damien. I'll add that he has an awesome music collection if you like indie... More

I have been travelling in Argentina during 2 months, went to a lot of cities and stayed at the best reviewed hostels. And I have to say that my favorite hostel in Argentina is la Prisamata. It has everything: a good location in a good city, good furnitures, hammocks, delicious asados, and every single member of the staff is friendly... More

Prisamata es like a home away from home for me. The first time I visited, I planned to stay maybe 3 days. 3 days turned into 2 weeks. My second visit, I knew better. I booked ahead for 2 weeks. Prisamata is the kind of hostel where you feel like you have gotten back together with old friends, even if... More

We agree with all comments about the good quality of this place, in terms of location, value and atmosphere. That being said, though, one must know that after checking out at 12pm, one is asked to pay 25 pesos per person. After already paying 60 pesos for leaving our luggage in the premises for a few days, we felt like... More

I spent 3 nights at Prisamata. The hostel staff are very friendly, home cooked meals were fantastic, location is great (short walk into the centre & right near all the bars & restaurants), the chill out area is lovely (complete with hammocks & bean bags) & the kitchen bore some resemblance to a family home kitchen with everyone hanging out...

We stayed here for three nights in April; one night in a twin room and two nights in a dorm. Pros: Staff are welcoming and friendly, particularly Damian. Chill out areas are great; hammock, bean bags, fairy lights and cool music. Big communal kitchen. The staff offer cheap communal meals most nights. We had bangers and mash which was yummy.... More

This hostel really is a gem. We stayed for a week and used the hostel as a base to do the excursions around Salta. Damian's made the place feel super friendly and cool. The staff are uber friendly and helpful, the best we've encountered while in Argentina. They threw a big party for my bday which was a lovely touch.... More

Excellent hostel - one of the best I ever stayed at: The spacious common area makes it easy to get in touch with other travelers and the staff is absolutely wonder- and helpful. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean, the big kitchen is fully equipped and almost every night the staff provides delicious meals at low-cost. There are hammacks... More
