This hostel is firstly really hard to book, we had to ring when we arrived in Argentina as they dont take bookings by email. I cant say it was really worth the effort! Yes, it has amazing views, they really are incredible. However, the rooms are not the best. We stayed in a double room which was quite dingy - the carpet was pretty threadbare and stained and the walls would really benefit from a lick of paint. What seemed strange was there was a padlock on the wardrobe - dont know why but I never saw that before. The bathrooms were fine, not as clean as I hoped though. The staff are okay, friendly enough. Ive stayed in a lot of hostels and this wasnt the best. If you want an incredible view or to meet other backpackers then I would recommend this hostel but it could really benefit from some upgrading. It has so much potential.
