This hostel is terrible disgusting and everything arround. The people there are really nice and most of them are living hete for a long time. Apart from that is is dirty the bathrooms are half broken and sometimes the power of the light and wifi is off. It happend two times during my one night stay. Also the area is not very save.
I would suggest you bring your money somewhere else!

A well located hostel in Recoleta. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Happy to answer all questions.
We stayed in a 3 bed room. Very noisy as we were there Friday and Saturday night and our room was located right beside the bar upstairs. Loud music and a lot of people shouting into late late hours. Rooms downstairs would have probably been quieter. 2 nights of very little sleep though in the room we were in. Breakfast basic - bread rolls, coffee, tea.

El Sol Hostel is one of the coolest hangout spots in Recoleta. It's located conveniently close to bus/metro stops, and within walking distance to a lot of tourist spots. The building is gorgeous with very tall ceilings.

The hostel has a bar upstairs with basic drinks including famous Argentinian fernet, all for much lower price than in other places. Here you end up meeting people from all over the world, some of them with interesting and crazy story about their travels. Also some local bands play there occasionally and sometimes the hostel throws parties on weekends. I stayed in El Sol only for one night, but came back to the bar countless times.

Because of nice and friendly staff, the entire atmosphere of the hostel is very relaxed and chill. Very low prices are also a big plus.

I know where to come back next time I'm in Buenos Aires!

Room Tip: Check out the bar at the terrace!

Friendly and well informed staff, good location within easy walking distance to most of the touristy parts of town.

Good value for money, clean, showers work well. Kitchen feels a little small but didn't have to wait more than ten minutes to use the cooker. Plenty of equipment. Supermarket, grocery and butcher located just round the corner.

Standard hostel breakfast but good coffee. Nice bar area located on the top floor serving beer, wine and pizza after 7.30pm.

One thing to note - the 8 bed dorm is located on the top floor near the bar. It is actually 2 x 4 bed dorms. If you need to sleep early, these dorms are not for you.

Would definitely stay here again. Did I mention that they have real coffee at breakfast.
