We stayed here one night and were happy to leave the next day. Most of the toilets weren't working and it was generally very dirty everywhere. There were people yelling and screaming, and music playing until 3am or so. Made for a horrible night of sleep. No matter what room you have, the noise just echoes up. But if that's...

The hostel itself was okay. We only stayed here a couple of nights though. Breakfast wasn't great but it did the trick. The staff were useful when trying to sort things out and could answer our questions. The kitchen was fine. A few times I had to wait to use the toilet and bigger lockers would be an improvement.

I originally booked a week or so, and just kept extending and extending. The location is perfect, close to so many great parks and public transit lines. And its small size makes it easy to meet people -- and everyone there is really the best. Miss you guys!!

We were here with new years eve. They organized a big dinner in the hostel, it was amazing. People are very friendly and willing to help you with whatever you need. The hostel can use a renovation with the Baños, because a lot of toilet doors are broken or the seats are lose. Also there can be a better air...

I stayed at Don King hostel for a week and really enjoyed my time here. The atmosphere is chilled but fun, and they play great music. The beds are comfortable and the shower is always hot with lots of water pressure. There is a fully stocked kitchen and the breakfast is delicious - croissants, brown and white toast, cereal, coffee...

The hostel location is quite good near metro, bus, and shopping center. The beds were not very comfortable very soft. Air conditioning worked better downstairs compared to the room upstairs. Although it is quite noisy downstairs music played till 3am. Breakfast very simple bread for toast with coffee and tea. Wifi only worked intermittently. The price was right for what...

Good location, nearby market, metro and bus stop, parks... If you want is posible to take a free bike about 2 minutes from the hostel. Great staff prepared to indicate places to go and absolutely helpful. Option for those looking for quality and good price.

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
