“friendly, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2009

i stayed here for a month in january and a few days at the end of my trip in april. it was clean, with friendly and helpful staff. location was great - recoleta is a nice and lively area, as well as being safe to walk around in at night. the small-ish size of the hostel made it very conducive to meeting other people there.

only down side was that because of the location it could be a bit noisy at night, especially in high season (jan and feb) - people stay out late in BA!!

the 5 bed dorms have cupboards etc so more storage space for your things if you are staying longer.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2009

The staff made us feel very welcome. The highlight was a guitar/sing along session on the roof top deck. We wanted to go to bed because we had an early night, but it was so much fun that we stayed up all night. Luckily we still made our flight in the morning. Thank you to all the staff who made us feel so welcome.
