We stayed in the suites and while the room was big and clean, the bathroom had several constant drips from faucets onto the floor so it was always wet. We got no service during our stay so we had to ask for toilet paper several times and attempt to clean up the water on the bathroom floor with a dirty mop.
The kitchen was poorly equipped that we had difficulty making a meal. The complimentary breakfast in the morning at the suites offered only bread and medialunas our first day. The coffee was awful and when we tried the tea, the hot water had brown things floating in it. We went out for breakfast from then on. I know they eventually added hard boiled eggs to the breakfast but we were done.
The staff, while not rude in any way, was not friendly and did not make any kind of effort to make us feel welcome. When we did ask a question about a tour they had posted on the bulletin board they simply said they didn't know and didn't offer any help.
The hostel was always cold, and it being winter when we traveled, it was not a welcoming escape from the chill outdoors.
We stayed in other hostels in Buenos Aires that were much nicer and equal the price. We wouldn't stay here again.
