Don't get me wrong, the hostel itself is not that bad and the guy behind the reception was actually very helpfull, but I will give it a horrible evaluation. It is the first time in my life I will do so and here is why. I stayed one night here, checked out the next day because I could move and...

I am not sure what has happened at this hostel previously to warrant so many rules but its completely excessive and makes everyone feel like they are treading on eggshells. No wearing shoes past the front door, no frying any food (so no frying pans provided), no eating in the hang-out area, no noise past midnight, only 15 minutes allowed...

I've stayed in a lot of hostels in my time and without exaggeration this was the worst by far. The word hospitality does not exist in the managements vocabulary, they take your money and give you the bare minimum in return. They don't care about you as an individual at all they just want your money. Whilst I was having...

The hostel is very special but unfortunately not in a good way. In general it's very clean and very well managed but you are not more than a guest. They have so many rules: - kitchen closes at 21:30 - Computer not allowed to use after 22:00 - don't fry anything (no extraction hood but how about buying one?) -...

Owners are completely invested in what you're doing in terms of activities, they know everyone's names and make sure you're sorted. I've never been to a hostel like that before and it was fantastic. This is our first dorm experience in South America and I'm not really a fan of putting our own sheets on the bed, but maybe that's...

This hostel is close to main street, super market, and post office. (3 key factors for me) Rooms are not spacious (compared with other hostels i stayed in Argentina) but we can always hang out in a big living room with heat, wifi, and great people. Many signs, many rules, many dos and don'ts. Well... I don't mind at all...

Staid here one night. The staff was very friendly the room were okay. If you are a tall person and you get bottom bunk you might find it difficult getting in and out of it. Oddly enough there were no wall sockets in the room so if you need to charge your phone you have to do it in the...

I stayed in a 4 bed and 6 bed room over 10 days. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Ask them any questions you have about what to do and how to do it and they'll tell you how, how much, at what time, what to bring, etc. The rooms are normally comfortable. The kitchen area is a little...

Stayed in this hostel in 2015 because hostel anatartica was completely booked. Small and clean but rooms are not so great.Only advantage of staying here is that this place is in centre and everything(pub,restaurant) etc are at walking distance.Didnt like breakfast either.Overall experience was neither good nor bad...an average place giving an average experience.
