If you are contemplating going to Tucuman - don't. There is nothing to do in this very hick town. We were led astray by the Lonely Planet who said there were various different things to do here that either never existed or no longer exist. But if you do stilt want to go then this hostel is good. It's location... More

We stayed with a friend one night here. We had a great breakfast and the vibe of the place was really nice. As I remember it wasn't a party-like place, so one can get a good rest before some intense days. One can chill out with tv, ping-pong and computers. I'd definitely stay there again if visiting San Miguel de... More

Great location. Close to the main square (4 streets away while most other hostels are really far!). Nice breakfast with tortillas (!!) and cereal. Nice and informative staff (: There are great asado nights and great vibe with local music. You can also rent bikes here to get around the city (: and the wifi is strong! Recommended!

Me and boyfriend stayed in a 10-bed dorm and we loved it! It was low season,so only us and a couple of other travellers in the big room. Lockers are available in the room,bring your lock. Downside was that it was room 1, the one facing the street which was quite loud in the morning. Additionally there is no A/C,... More

Backpackers Tucuman is a friendly place located in an old, beautiful building. There are several patios and comfortable common areas, while the dorms have high ceilings and lots of space. What makes it stand out from the bunch, however, is the extensive use of colours of all kinds, which creates a welcoming atmosphere

Backpackers Tucuman is from my opinion the perfect hostel for backpackers : Really clean, big individual bathrooms, some extra shower cabins, beautiful decoration, nice commun area in the backyard, and daily deals at the bar! Besides that, the location could hardly be better (few blocks from the Plaza Principal), And two big "plus" : They offer paragliding tours (What a... More

Ok for a one night stop over but I would have found somewhere else if we'd booked another night. We paid 70 pesos pp for 8 bed dorm. Rooms were grubby. Lockers not secure. Beds were not made, we were given 'clean' sheets to make up beds ourselves. Pillows hard and uncomfortable. Bunks were very high, wooden, poorly made and... More

Hostel in desparate need of a revamp, bathrooms are very old and falling apart. Dorm rooms are a good size. Lockers are useless - made of chipboard and the ones in our dorm had either broken locks or sides falling off them. State of the lockers sums up the whole place - looks like it used to be an ok...
