I stayed here for my first night in BA and that was enough. I researched so much on hostels/B&B's prior to the trip looking for good place in good location. Having completed a 14+ hour flight to BA, was hoping for good rest in good hostel. Although it looked clean, the accommodation is very old and has musty smell. Was told upon check in that they were having a party that night with "strict" policy to end party at 2am. I've stayed in plenty of hostels and 2am seems rather late for a quiet time policy, but appreciated forewarning at the time. HOWEVER, Not only was "strict" policy not enforced until 3am, but people were exceptionally loud, screaming, and smoking. Cigarette smoke definitely got into my room. Thought of turning on the fan in my room so I could breathe, but then saw it was coated in a super thick layer of dust and grime (Did not want that blowing my way). The breakfast was a joke with stale bread and juice. I had asked for change for 100 pesos the next morning upon check out to which was told they didn't have any which was a lie as since they just had a party the previous night until 3am where I'm sure heaps of drunken guests unloaded heaps of pesos. When I asked to buy a water and paid with my 100 peso bill, they magically had change.
Definitely not for me and not for anyone looking for a decent sleep or good accommodation. While I'm not against parties, they should have kept their word and enforced what was claimed to be a strict quiet time policy to be respectful to those wanting sleep. I know I wasn't the only one bothered because after the massive crowd moved their party to the bars, another traveller came out to comment on their loss of sleep. It's the perfect place for someone looking for a major party and no other expectations!
