The hosteria is out of town on the hill overlooking the main town, but in a part of ever-expanding town where the paved roads haven't quite reached but no detriment to the hostel and don't let that deter you if you don't mind a walk - it however may be off-putting for some when you might have to walk the distance in the rain. It's a little walk into town but it's under the kilometre. I found reception friendly, helpful and accommodating - always giving us our messages such as pick-up times etc. for the next day. Rooms are smallish but comfortable - some glasses or cups or even a chair in the room would be nice. Bed was very comfortable and the bonus for us is having the quietness at night without traffic and/or people noises echoing up to your room from the streets. Sheets a little on the thin side but as with all the linen always very clean and fresh smelling.
A good Argentinian breakfast - bonus for me was the croissants were fresh - crispy and soft inside and not cold and hard as they were in some larger hotels. A very nice fruit salad - others I've had from larger hotels were either made too far in advance and the fruit was browning or they supplemented the fresh with too much tinned.
We would definitely stay here again for the quietness and comfortable beds. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed them all.
