“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I stayed her in Salta for 4 nights and really enjoyed myself, with a good mix of people staying her from all over the place. The plus points are 1) very helpful/tri-lingual staff 2) LOCATION 3) PRICE. The only down side is that the hostel itself lacks character and is a little shabby in areas. Overall a great stay and would recommend to anyone!

The place is clean and you will find all you need here ! The hostel is very well located, close from the center with all the shops close by. All the people working here is really friendly and will help you a lot whatever you need : you can trust Rosa, she is a very good person with a huge heart ;)
I spent 2 nights there and I had a lot of fun cooking with the staff and going out with them !!! Be careful with Fernet !!

I stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed myself. Staff are good, loads of information about things to do... Rooms were clean and spacious, toilets and bathrooms are clean, t.v. room a big plus BUT breakfast is poor. Location for me seemed pretty ideal so would recommend to fellow travellers x x x

I had so much fun at this hostel. The people who work there are really nice and we ended up having an asado at the hostel which was a lot of fun and gave us the opportunity to meet everyone else staying there while eat amazing food. The place was very comfortable and clean. Would definitely recommend.

This is place is clean and very decently priced. But the best part is the people that work there. They are amazing. They will take you out and you will have the greatest time. They genuinely like to hang out with foreigners and get to know you. You will get passes to get into clubs for free. We went out and bought meat with them and then they made this great BBQ. I would recommend this place to anyone.

There are bed bugs in the dorms, the breakfast is stale bread with coffee or tea, the kitchen is very dirty, the showers are over the toilets and the bathroom doors don´t even close properly. Internet is available but very slow, so better to go to an internet cafe. The Spanish guy at reception is incredibly unfriendly and rude. The only good thing about this place are Eva and Rosa, the other two girls at reception, and the location is great. But I definatly do not recommend this hostel!

We just stayed in the Ferienhaus Hostel in Salta for two nights.
The hostel is clean, nice staff and very near to the center of the nice city.
we stayed in a 4 bed dorm but we had luck and during our stay nobody else came into our room.
The only problem we had was that during our stay a large sport-club group stayed in the hostel. This group thought that they don't have to be quiet at night and in the morning and were not really considerate about the other people in the hostel. So before midnight it was not possible to sleep and also in the morning after 7:30 we didn't sleep anymore.
But for sure this was not the fault of the Hostel or its staff.
Maybe the only thing was that even after we complained at the staff they didn't say a word to one of the loud people, so it was the same shouting and stamping on the next day again!
But in general this hostel is a good place to stay, make sure that there is no large group during your stay :-)
