We're a couple travelers. We got to the hostel according to recommendations from the web and reservation two months in advance. The room rises as 3 star hotel room. When we arrived, we very disappointed because we got a dark basement room, dirty, smelled of mold. There was no closet in the room and we were asked to pay in... More

We are not quite sure why this hostel was rated so highly because our experience wasn't so great. We were put in one of the basement rooms which was dark, damp and stinky. The bathroom was not clean at all and there was no soap. The "breakfast" is not really a breakfast but rather some stale buns and jam. Having... More

Living room area has a fireplace and TV and always frequented by a traveller strumming a guitar (sometimes til 3am - they didn't enforce the midnight no noise... More

I stayed here for three nights, booking through hostelworld.com and paying ARS130/night for a bed in a 8-bed mixed dormitory, although I actually ended up in a 6-bed mixed dormitory. My ratings and comments are taking into consideration the different expectations I have for this kind of accommodation; I am not rating this on the same scale as I would... More

Good location but very basic. Very noisy and crowded. Bathroom to people ratio is not good so be prepared to wait. Breakfast was very poor - not sure why they bother putting out stale bread and sicky sweet orange cordial. Ok for a night but not more.

Based on the reviews we were expecting this hostel to be great, but it was disappointing. The staff were pretty good, although some didn't speak any English. The ones who did though were helpful. The facilities were pretty good, it had a well stocked kitchen and the TV/communal area was nice to hang out in. The main issue with this... More

The hostel feels like home. Lucas helped us a lot, and gave us good advices.. We really recommend on it! When we wanted to rent a car and we couldn't find anything available, Lucas helped us and did lots of phone calls and found us a rental agency and helped us with the navigation! Also BBQ night was awesome!
