Stayed for one night in a ten bed room. Not worth the price (140arg). Staff was nice and plesant. Very poorly maintaind. Toilets don't flush, doors don't lock and only one shower out of two works properly. Part of the bunk beds are not high enough and the person in the bed below has very little room. Mattresses are old... More

Stayed one night here. It's nice for travellers on a budget. Hosts went out of their way. Wifi is pretty fast. Most beds are bunks. It's good to book out entire room if travelling with a group. Walking distance to bus station.

I stayed at the hostel for one night as I missed my connecting bus. The staff are nice enough but the hostel is very dirty. I'm pretty sure my bed had bed bugs, and the bathrooms were unclean. If you are there just for the night then maybe it will be okay.

Overall this hostel is a definite average with a pretty central location in the city. Our room with two twin beds was clean and small, the bathrooms were semi cleaned, the breakfast was a typical Argentina style set up with bread, jam, and coffee. The hostel is only about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus station and a 5-10... More

We have stayed in quite some hostels all over the world, but this was the first one where the only reception we got was "here is your room". We had to ask for bed covers, breakfast or other facilities, including bathrooms, maps of the city, etc... Perhaps we entered at the wrong moment, but we have never seen such an... More

We stayed here for one night. We booked a private room without bathroom wich was good, but very small. But value for money compared to a private room with private bathroom. Good matresses and a clean room. Good shower with hot water. The kitchen and fridge were not clean and breakfast was poor, even for Argentinian standards. The jacuzzi (mentioned... More

As compared to other hostels this is a pretty nice place. Private rooms are available and bunks and privates are inexpensive. During the time I was there the staff spoke English. The place has a friendly sitting area in the front and a nice terrace plus hot tub on the roof. On the other hand, there's no air, and San... More

Two reasons two stay here - cheap private rooms and a nice terass. Otherwise go elsewhere. People that are not guests come and go. Dirty and very unorganized hostel.
