“Amazing hostel in great location in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

Been there back in 2003 (yeah!!! 10 years ago - how the time fly!!!) when it was opened not long ago and it was amazing excperience. In total, i've spent there over a month, and it was the best place to meet people from all over and the stuff were amazing and real friendly. I made some really good friends there with whom i'm in touch to this day. Recommend it!!!

Quite a nice place, good location... stayed in a 12 person dorm for 45pesos a night which is cheap for BA. 6 bed dorms at reception are noisy and you wont get sleep.
our friends stayed in a 4 person room and they woke up one morning to find their locks had been broken off their lockers and all their stuff robbed... (cheap place to stay if you dont mind getting all your stuff robbed....thats all i have to say...)

We only stayed one night at this hostel, which has a good location in the centre of Buenos aires.

It is a small hostel which seems to get most of its business from travellers who cannot get into Millhouse round the corner.

Our six bed dorm was comfortable, clean and had decent lockers. The fan was broken but a free standing one was given when we asked for it. Breakfast included is measured but fine.

A major drawback is that the bar (which is smoking) is in the reception area so anyone wanting to go to sleep before 2am is unlikely to get any shut eye.

Staff not overly helpful.

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.
