This hostel is in Buenos Aires. One of the greatest cities in the world.
Large groups of children stay in this hostel so if you don't want kids running around knocking on your door randomly don't stay here.
Bathrooms are pretty filthy and only get cleaned once a day. Bad for a hostel that is the size it is.
Toilets don't always have loo paper in them.
There are no locks on any of the toilet doors. Or doors in some cases!
The handle fell off our dorm room door. We told them about it and it took them 3 days to do anything.
Plug adapters don't stay in a lot of the sockets.
The kitchen is a disgrace. There are hardly any utensils to cook with. We had to go out and buy some plates.
They also organised a day out (through another company) to watch Argentina v Bolivia where they promised us pizza and beers. We got one can of beer and no food all day and paid £50 each for standing tickets plus a coach there and back. Total rip off for what we got. The hostel offered to buy us a pizza the next day at noon after we had just eaten. They should have given us the 100 pesos (£15) back which was their cut for the booking fee... But they didn't.
If one of the million kids staying there is not playing games on one of the computers in reception, be aware that the wire connections are loose and there is a chance it will randomly shut down.
How this hostel has so many good ratings on trip advisor we'll never know.
For a little bit extra money and if they have availability, stay at Circus Hostel which is on the same road. Book well in advance though they get full pretty quickly which is why we ended up at Tango.
