“Left the next day”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2006

I was going to stay several nights here, but I ended up not liking the place. It won an award in one of the Buenos Aires newspapers for being the best hostel in town, so I booked it. The prices are low, but it's just not very nice. Most of the windows face a busy street, so you can't have the windows open at night if you want to sleep. I was there in summer, so I was sweltering in my bed as there is no air conditioning. There are 2 private rooms and the rest are bunk beds for sharing with other travelers. The bathroom really needed to be re-done. The hosts were very nice and I wish I had liked it better here. There are better choices.

Gardenadmin, Manager at Garden House Hostel, responded to this review, May 10, 2010
This is a very unusual review to our hostel. Our building features 8 PRIVATE ROOMS and 2 SHARED DORMS. Each one has a window, but only 2 of the private rooms has a window facing to the street. We do have some air conditioned rooms but they have a different price because they mean an additional cost for us. However, every room has a ceiling fan and a heater and internet service and a very plentiful breakfast are included on the price.
Our staff is a very caring group of people who would change anybody's room if the guest is not comfortable or satisfyed with its own and our clean rooms and bathrooms are usually mentioned in other reviews.
