Reviewed January 18, 2012

Pretty much the cheapest hostel in Salta and good facilities. Large kitchen and reasonably priced beer.

The two girls on the front desk are very friendly and helpful.

However, the place is old and run down. Rooms are small and mattresses well worn. There is no room for your backpacks so the dorms are cluttered.

Bathrooms are tiny and have that gross feel about them, shower time felt like a chore.

Even though the staff clean the place the age of the building gives it that dirty feel.

Location is do-able, a hike from the main bus stop though but not that far from the main square.

We found alot of accommodation in salta was booked up so we took a chance on this place which had no reviews. Our room was basically in / right beside the dining area. So it was very noisy especially at night, it was mainly locals staying there- actually at times it felt we were in a big family home. That said the staff especially the two ladies at the front desk were very pleasant and extremely helpful - just bring earplugs.
