My stay was average. This was my second stay at HI Palermo because it happens to be near the US embassy and I had a two-day interview there. Always try to walk on Santamaria de Oro and not Godoy Cruz. The latter feels SO scketchy! Oh, if you ride the subway, getting off at Plaza Italia feels so much safer than Palermo. I didn't actually stayed long: I usually do hostel activities and I used it only as a place to crash this time.
PROS: The hostel cleanliness can be easily seen since I always bumped into someone cleaning, esp. the floors. Reception staff were nice. Location. There seemed to be free access to computers. The WiFi was good near the reception (I used my phone's Internet in the room). Good value: $125 per night in a four female dorm.
MEH: I wish they'd rent locks or lend them. I forgot mine and I had to buy one at the reception.
CONS: breakfast was basic (bread, cream cheese, jam, cereal) but the coffee was HIDEOUS. Worst coffee I've ever had! I used milk and it was full of its skin. Yuck! I need to drink something for breakfast. Orange juice was from that powdery type and it was waaay too dissolved. Overall, I felt breakfast was cheap, like they didn't want to spend money on food. I had to had breakfast elsewhere.
I tried to shower and the water was never hot. I was too tired to get dressed to go and complain, so I showered as fast as I could. It is not pleasant to shower like that when it's 10C/50F! Don't go to room 9!
Mattresses are getting quite slim. Not too bad since I only slept there one night.
People from room 8 tried to unlock their door and the noise was SO loud. I could hear everything that was going on in the hallway. Not soundproofed! I had a terrible night sleep.
Consider it an average hostel. Good for young people who don't expect much.
