We weren´t looking for noisy parties and so while it is likely to be ok value for dorms and those looking for a party we didn´t enjoy it and we certainly dont´recommend the double room. We paid quite a lot (they asked for cash in advance - it was $1400 in total) and we didn´t sleep well for 3 of 4 nights.
1 Fantastic location in trendy Palermo
2 New and clean (although maybe not for long)
3 Hot showers
1 Double room was SO hot and stuffy. No ac which you really do need in the summer heat in BA. The window for the double room opened out into the small courtyard so no breeze and people walking right past it to go to the roof terrace (at ALL hours of the night) so not much privacy.
2 Really noisy if there are lots of people about and it was full when we were there (high season). They had a stag do of Argentinians staying who were up every night until 2am and then made loads more noise on returning at 6am.
3 Can only drink alcohol bought in the hostel and as they are making so much money from this they are happy to let people drink and make noise throughout the night. When we asked when it would be quieter so we could sleep they said this is how a hostel is.
4 Common areas was sometimes over run by the owners and staff´s own friends so we sometimes felt uncomfortable being down there. And too hot in our room to hang out there + the internet did not work well in the room
5 Info on what to do in BA was not very forthcoming. No tours or map offered but they did book us a taxi and were helpful when we asked for anything.
Oh and it was a pretty pathetic attempt at a breakfast!
Found the vibe a little unfriendly and generally not a great place to hang out - in fact one of the worst hostel experiences in over 2 months travelling.
