Aldea Hostel Cordoba
Ranked #9 of 194 Specialty Lodging in Cordoba
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The staff was nice and helpful, but the whole place was filled with kids. At first when I checked in I had to actually double check if I'm in a right place, cause for a moment there I thought that I have mistakenly came to the kindergarten. It was hard to relax with kids playing and running around, so for that reason I had to go through a hassle of cutting my stay there short and moving to another hostel.

Couldn't recommend a better hostel! Initially, I had only planned to stay in Cordoba briefly. I ended up staying for a month and this hostel was a large part of why I chose to stay longer. Great atmosphere. Comfortable balance of privacy and social gathering. Great kitchen: fully functional with plenty of space. Courtyard located in the center of the property was a great place to hang with new friends. Rooftop terrace is a great place to get sun and relax, con parilla where asados (BBQs) where common (2-3x per week). Staff was very friendly and made the experience that much better, always willing to help and socialize with new guests.

Room Tip: Has quieter rooms (dorms and solos) located in the rear of the property that are great. Or for a mo...

It's my first time to stay at hostel, and my Spanish is very poor. But it's very nice experience and I would like to recommend to everyone especially those come to Cordoba for Argentine Tango, because it's a perfect location to go to most of Milongas.

Pros:
Location to the city center; good wi-fi; cheap in-house laundry service; good prices; reception desk staff are extremely helpful with travel & tour information and booking.

Cons:
This place can house a lot of guests, and therefore is crowded and noisy; kitchen is under-equipped for the large number of guests and the utensils need a refresh; computers are old and slow; I dislike the hostel's policy denying you from bringing your own alcoholic beverages, thus forcing you to buy from the hostel's bar.

Stayed at the Aldea for one night and would basically sum it up as OK. Very busy, slightly noisy and not the cleanest. Dorm mattresses definitely could have been cleaner and at least have a liner on them. Saying that, in a good location, great value and good social scene. Definitely worse places to stay in Cordoba, but better ones too.

Breakfast is practically non-existing: there are stone hard bread rolls. And that's it. No jam, not even butter, no cereal, no juice.
The showers get very wet and dirty once you use it, and they only get cleaned in the morning.
Only 2 toilets for many many people.
This hostel seems to attract many Israelis, who aren't the most social and fun people to meet, so it gets boring. No activities are planned in the hostel.
One night, during the week, the bar decided to turn it into a disco until 2am, which meant you couldn't sleep at all.
Overall, this has been the worst hostel I ever stayed at.

Muchas gracias por dejar tu comentario, siempre nos sirve para mejorar nuestro servicio. Lamentamos mucho que hayas tenido una mala experiencia en nuestro hostel. Trabajamos constantemente para mejorar nuestro servicio. El desayuno cambio cambió notablemente, servimos: café, te, mate cocido y chocolate con pan casero hecho el mismo día acompañado de manteca, dulce de leche, mermelada y jugo de naranja, siendo los huéspedes además atendido por el personal de Aldea Hostel. Personal especializado en atención, limpieza y mantenimiento se asegura cada día que la experiencia de nuestros huéspedes sea la mejor. Los baños han sido remodelados totalmente y reequipados. Hoy somos muy estrictos con el personal que trabaja en Aldea quienes están en constante formación para mejor siempre la calidad en Aldea Hostel.
Te invitamos a que nos visites nuevamente si vuelves a Córdoba y puedas corroborar los cambios.

We were originally looking for a different hostel but since it wasn't obvious we decided to stay here for 2 nights. We would have stayed a third night but we saw a sign for a party starting at 9pm and thought better of it - the place was packed. The staff were friendly and we were shown a number of rooms, settling on a private double room at the back of the property. The bathroom was clean, the room spacious however, one of the windows didn't lock - but the hostel was secure enough anyway. It was a little noisy since the windows overlooked the internal courtyard. Wifi worked well and breakfast was simple. The kitchen was well equipped and the dining area pleasant. Another guest coughing her lungs up over the kitchen sink and drying dishes was a little off-putting.
