I sleep in this hostel twice. and enjoy sleep there.
The hostel have a good breakfast , and big kitech.
The rooms are big , and you have a big locker.
The staff was very friendly, and help me to know buenos arries .
The location is perfect in the center.
And in the hostel you have a nice bar.
In this place I meet nice people, I think if you travel alone its good place to meet people.
The price its little high for backpackers , but is Buenos arries, this city are expensive, so the price is fare

Terrible place to stay! The building is decrepit and falling down in places. The staff had no interest in helping us or other travellers and were downright rude at times. Smoking is allowed in the hostel which means it is in a constant haze of smoke which filtered into our room.Our private room had dirty walls, floor and bathroom. The floor was uneven wooden floor boards, one of which gave way if you stood on it. Music is played in the bar area until the early hours of the morning. We would not recommend this hostel at all - it really impacted on our time in Bs As. Apparentely this is a great place to meet people but this was the the case for us at all, unless you want to share your packet of cigarettes.

Good hostel for backpackers! There's a bar so its easy to meet people, also a pool table.
There's good wifi, a travel agency and PC's if you dont travel with a laptop.

It is a little smokey in the main lounge/bar room when its busy but my room was right off this room and never found it bad in my room. (I'm a non-smoker)

The staff here are really friendly, and the location was great for me.

Rooms and facilities are just your normal cheap hostel/backpacker type, but are clean and everything works!

We stayed here for 1 night and slept for only three hours. Its a shame that we have so much bad to say... the building is a beautiful old colonial style building and the location is good I guess.
We had a choice of an 8 bed dorm or private room, stayed in a private room and I am glad we did, the dorm smelt really musky and was just horrible. As we checked in we were told there would be no water from the hours of 12 a.m to 6 a.m, which wasn't helpful as we had a flight to catch at 6 the next morning. The shower area looked small and the lighting is bad but the shower has a toilet in the same room and you can close the door for privacy.
The hostel is not very clean although staff were friendly.
The computers are so old and slow too.

We were out of the hostel all day, when we returned we were welcomed to smoke filled reception and it was disgusting, noisey and dirty. Really there are cheaper and better hostel in BA to stay in. I think if you're young and a lone traveller you may not mind this hostel so much as there were a bunch of people whom seeemd to be having fun chatting, smoking, listening to loud music.....

Room Tip: you can book a taxi service from the hostel to the airport for a set price

very friendly service at this central hostel. A little scruffy, but that is part of its charm. Bathrooms a bit scruffy but OK, decentish breakfast of media lunas, cornflakes and slightly out of date apples and oranges, free internet and wifi, very helpful staff and in-house travel agency and help book onwards travel etc free of commission charges. We arrived at 3am due to a very delayed flight, and were given free G&T on arrival which was much appreciated!
