I stayed 2 nights in Mystic.
The frist night was great and the room looked like the one you see on the webiste, but then we were moved and the other rooms are nothing to be compared with. The door of the balcony did not close so you were hearing the noise of street as if you are sleeping out there. I only recommend this hostel if you can book the violet room and if you are a couple and need some time alone. The place does not have the atmosphere of a hostel i.e. you dont meet travellers along. The staff are quite friendly and helpfull (the best thing in this hostel) but we found the owner quite unfriendly : 1/ he increased the price of the room by 15$ when we tried to do a booking during the same month (nov) 2 weeks later upon our return to BA ... 2/ then he requested that we mop the floor because we moved furniture in the room to avoid the noise on the street... that was sooo unfriendly!
It was our first hostel experience in argentina and when we visited other hostels we discovered that the argentinan and hostels accorss argentina are much more friendly than our first encounter in Buenos Aires.
