Stayed for one night in the 8-bed dorm. There are no lockers, shelves or whatsoever, the walls are covered with mold and you sink deeply into the mattress which makes a good night's sleep hard... There is an A/C though which is a plus. The bathroom looks like it hasn't been cleaned in months and the water pressure is really...

This hostel was very disappointing. After travelling 5 months through South America it was the worst ever. We arrived late in our double room and immediately noticed that the private bathroom hasn't been cleaned at all. There were hair lying around everywhere an the toilet left traces of many last visitors...it was disgusting. I went to the owner and asked...

Very dirty, run down, with apathetic staff. Breakfast was a small pile of burnt toast and 5 teabags for 7 people... everyone went out and bought their own food. We went to La Rioja for one night for the sole purpose of doing the Vientos del Señor. Initially the staff seemed very knowledgeable about explaining how to get there. However,...

I'll be real here -- this place is spartan / rustic, but it got the job done. Like others have said, the owners really make this place. The sweetest older couple ever. They are always happy to help you with whatever you need. Would definitely stay here again. Right in the center of town, and you can actually sleep at...

What makes this hostel great is the family running it. Helping wherever they can and make you feel home. My bed was a little hard but that's all I have to complain. Baths are clean, breakfast is ok (try the juice!), internet was speedy. Last but not least: The price is unbeatable. So yeah, treat yourself with some nice days...

W had a lovely stay at this hostel. The decorations are all very funky and it has a very relaxed atmosphere. The night was quiet and and restful. We took a non-air conditioned room and it was not very expensive, but at the height of summer an air conditioned room would make the night bearable. The location is great, just...

Very nice place to stay for a couple of days and see Talampaya and Ischigualasto national parks. Close from the center place, restaurants and shopping area. Not much to see in the city itself but amazing national parks!

This hostel looks like any other hostel, but what sets it apart is the lovely women who run it. They are so nice and helpful and are genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay in La Rioja. The hostel is big, pretty clean (could use a little deep cleaning in the bathrooms), and decorated very uniquely. Prices are average for...

The rooms were too hot, with cockroaches and a dirty kitchen. Although we were told we could keep our luggage at the hostel and take a shower the day after our stay (before taking the night bus), they wanted 20 pesos per person for the shower and 8 pesos for keeping the bags. We have never experienced anything like this...
