Garden House Hostel
Reviewed 3 April 2014

This was a perfect hostel. Not to big, not to little. Very easy to get interaction with other travellers. The people who are staying here are not the average lets-go-to-south-america-and-party-and-drink-very-cheap, but more the kind of people where you can have a good conversation with. The staff in the hostel is very kind and very helpful. Location is perfect, because it is next to San Telmo, which is the nicest neighborhood in BA and it is very close to the center as well. Beds and bathroom are good. Common living room and kitchen are good. Breakfast is good. Can´t complain about anything! Every saturday they a barbeque on the roof terrace! (Which is a very nice place to hang out)

I went for two nights and ended up staying over two weeks and then came back when I returned to BA!! I can't recommend The Garden House Hostel highly enough! It's a fantastic place to meet fellow travellers and make friends, its clean and comfortable, a really good mixture of staying up and having a drink and also relaxing peace and quiet. Pamela, Reina, Bo, Sara and Carlos made everyone feel so welcome and were so much fun. You woke up to laughing and banter at breakfast and they all genuinely want to be friends with everyone. The best hostel in Buenos Aires by a long way And fantastic value for money!

Really enjoyed my stay at garden. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was clean and linen was changed regularly. Also a great location being so close to San Telmo and right on a Subte line.

Highly recommend.

This was my first stop in Buenos Aires. I got a dirty room with dirty bedding and whole night some peole watched a movie in a hall. Staff was helpful, but they didn't accept credit cards and they exchange rate for USD was 20% below a bank one. Cheap, nice staff, but dirty.

We were told that this place would be good for us becuase everything was in english and the staff would help us plan our stay in buenos aires and beyond. Well I am happy to confirm that this was the case and the help was above and beyond our expectations. We ended up staying for about a week and became part of the family. We got to know all the staff and other travellers very well and spent most of our time here in the common room socialising with everyone. It is sad to be leaving our adopted family. Definitly consider this hostel if atmosphere is what you are after. Thanks Garden House Hostel.

We rocked up at this hostel after an epic bus journey...our initial reaction of the building was not great, it looked run down, dirty and not like the image Garden house springs to mind...we went in and the place smelt, the staff were on hand but didn't make you feel welcome. The rooms smelt, didn't feel clean at all and there was just stuff everywhere...the toilet and shower were dirty, wet floors, flip flop marks everywhere, just not nice! The people in the hostel were almost too chilled (?!) not the hostel fault but it's that kind of vibe...quite noisy, had people coming in and out all through the night...there are much better places to stay in BA!

This hostel is awsom! the facilities, rooms and bathrooms are similiar to what u will find in most hostels, but it has more...the breakfast is the best i had in argentina, uruaguay and brasil...it is super comfortable...and best of all the staff are fantasic! sorry i cant remember the name of the lady that helped me, but we showed up without a reservation, she gave us a room and then helped us find another hostel for the next couple of nights (as they were full)...we then wanted to know wheres best to exchange our money, and where to find a good dentist (as i had had an accident a few weeks prior) she happily and promptly helped us with both those things including ringing and making a dentist appoitnment for me! everything else we needed help with she was there with a warm welcoming smile...i couldnt thank her enough!!! i would definatly recomend this hostel!!!
