“Could be better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2010

This was the first hostel I have ever stayed at so I have waited 2 months before reviewing it so I could make a comparison. It was recommended by someone who had happily stayed there for 5 weeks. It is well located for the centre of town but a little noisy with the windows open, no aircon. 3 shared female showers for the whole place but not a problem. It felt a little scruffy, I did see a bedbug on my sheet one morning, not sure if they tackled the problem but I did see them spray the bed frame in parts but she said it was for mosquitoes!! It was a very friendly hostel, I met some very nice people there. Staff were quite helpful. Breakfast is basic, bread and medialunes (croissants) . On returning to BA I stayed at Florida Suites around the corner which has better facilities, en suite bathrooms, more modern but due to size, a less intimate environment but I preferred it for the cleanliness factor. The staff do not remake the beds so dorms feel messy. Overall an OK place, a so so recommendation especially since I saw a lot worse in Palermo when I was searching for a different location.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2009

We've stayed for 2 nights and had to move to a more peaceful location. The location is great, right in the center, but at 45USD per night for ensuite double room, its not such a good value for money. The rooms are simple, with a small window on the roof. Also, the rooms that we had, communicated with the one next door through an open space near the ceiling, so we could hear them very well. There are a lot of noises from the street and also, the guests become active and loud after midnight.
The staff was helpful and friendly, it could work fine for beds in the dorms which are cheaper, and if you do not mind the noise.

I stayed in a private room (double bed) for 2 nights and it was great. The location is very good, the room was clean and comfortable, the staff was helpful. The only complain is: there's only one common computer, so obviously it's never available.

I found 06 on Hemispherehostels.com. Last time(Brazil) I had had success, and hoped that we would have as much luck in Buenos aires as we'd had in Rio. Showers didnt work and when they did they dribbled out cold water. Toilets are dirty and cramped..The cleaner didnt enter the room in 3/4 days.
Neigborhood .The staff , after any complain, were really rude!!
Dont go near it!!
