“terrible bedroom”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The double bedroom has 2 walls poorly made of drywall, that allows the noise of one 6 bed rooms comes inside the wall like the other people are sleeping in the same bed as you.

A group checked-in at 3:30 a.m. making a lot of noise and hitting doors, but the owners didn't do anything about it.

The mattress is terrible and made my boybriend complain of back pain during the whole trip.
We switched sides and I couldn't get to sleep (the crazy girl screaming at 2 a.m. had some participation in this process).

There is only ONE shower to share with around 20 people and is super dirty!

The milk served on the breakfast was a little weird on the second day and I had to throw it away.

I wouldn't stay there again.

Good points:
The staff is kind and helps you with tips. The man on the front desk offers trips to present the city for a good price.
They gave us the tip to take the bus DM1 to get to the airport, which costs around 2 dolars.
They have 2 bikes to rent.
The hostel is located 200m from the Punta Carretas Mall and 1km from the Pocitos Beach.

Dear, I really regret the bad experience at our facility.
We already take action on the case. Rearranged our shared room.
We take precautions with the other marked points.
My apologies.
I am at your service.
