I booked this hostel online and selected a double room private bathroom for 2 nights. However, on arriving at the hostel I was told that the room I had selected was now occupied and that I would have to switch rooms halfway through my stay. This meant that although I was booked in for 2 nights I had to wake...

We got here quite late and wanted to check in without prior reservation. They did not have any availabilities which is totally fine of course. As it was quite late and there was a festival in town which caused many of the hostels to be full, we kindly asked whether we could use their phone to call one other hostel...

We spent three nights in this hostel (two in a double room, one in the dormitory). The hostel is really clean and warm. The owners are really gentle and helpful with turistic informations: they even called the security service to have information about the Jama pass in our place. The water of showers are always warm. The only ammelioration could...

The staff here are great, very welcoming and friendly. Our room was a twin (there wasn't a double available) which was a reasonable size and clean. It has a very small internal window facing out into the corridor so can be a bit dark. Breakfast is served individually and includes tea/coffee/hot chocolate, juice and a basket of toast / pastries....

I think this hotel is a good option for people just passing through traveling on a low budget. It is clean and the communal areas like the patio are very nice. There is also an area for cooking. The only thing I didn't like was our private bathroom. It was clean but a little dank with dry rot on the...

Thank you for your opinion, we just wanted to clarify that the Hostel has hot water 24 hours, maybe you're wrong on tap.

The couple that run this place will make you feel at home as soon as you arrive and can provide good info on things to do in Salta. A few blocks from the main square and close to the market, a supermarket and a laundry. Rooms are basic, but clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast is standard for Argentina, but served...

This is great value for those on a budget - it is well located,rooms are clean, there is consistent hot water and the owners are a very sweet and helpful couple. Prices are low so of course things are more basic (eg decor, breakfast etc) but having stayed there in a private double room for 2 nights and I was...

We regret that you did not understand the meaning of “check out”. It is very simple: you either leave the hostel or exercise other options: store your luggage with us, use bathrooms/kitchen etc. There are posters all over the hostel that list those options with their corresponding costs. We sometimes extend the courtesy of not charging our guests for some...

Very clean & friendly hostel run by husband & wife team. It is in a convenient location close to the centre of town. They offer a variety of very good local tours at a discounted price Extremely good value for money & one of the best hostels we stayed at in Argentina. No complaints whatsoever.
