This was by far the worst place and worst experience in all of my South American travels. I booked them on hostel bookers and was glad to find a cheap place in Palermo that had 7 consecutive nights I could stay there in the same room. I was there in August 2013, and couldnt find any other hostel with those...

Seem this hostel has bad reviews but I'm glad I saw this after I stayed there. I found it by coincidence after arriving in Palermo without having booked anything and it was a great stay for 5 days. The staff were really helpful when I needed something and the place was always kept clean and the beds were surprisingly comfortable....

I booked this hostel because I saw it advertised in the South American Explorers newsletter and assumed they endorsed it -- should have known it was a bad idea when they charged the full cost upfront via Western Union. I really couldn't find another good option in Palermo offering a triple room for a decent price, but I wish I'd...

***DO NOT STAY HERE.*** The ONLY good thing about this hostel is the location. From the moment we walked in the door, the whole experience at SoHostel was horrible. They charged us 25% more than the advertised price, then yelled at us when we tried to discuss the discrepency. We asked for a private quad room, and got a room...

I was here just one night, I can say that the room was clean, the building has full potential but has not been properly refurnished so it looks old and without maintenance. At least our room was very dark. I checked other hostels in the neighborhood and you can find best quality for the same price.

I was disappointed by my stay at Sohostel. It was loud, the noise echoed through the building and through the doors, and there was loud partying that went on until 2:30am. The rooms and facilities are rundown, if clean. I left after the first night, and did not receive a reimbursement for the additional three nights I had paid for.

I stayed in this hostel for several nights and then a friend and I PAID to store our luggage there while we were traveling to Uruguay for four days. First, I could not agree more with the previous reviews--the hostel is unclean, the staffers are unfriendly, and the hostel claims to have air conditioning and televisions in the private rooms,...

We stayed here for only 2 nights as I simply could not stand the dirt any longer. I fully expect Hostels to be a bit dirty and noisey but this was a true exception. The toilet paper dustbin was overflowing with stained toilet tissue which had not been emptied in weeks the floors were just filth and the used condom...

How do I describe this hostel without using expletives? Dirty, noisy, uncomfortable and miserable. We booked it as it was recommended in the rough guide. We were asked for a 50% deposit paid through werstern union (which costs a significant percentage). They tried to charge more per night than advertised on their website and did not suggest the promotion which...

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
