The place is incredible, in old building and great painted. The room (8bed) was ok, but a little stuffy. The breakfast was fine. We met great people there. Good location.

in the internet we read many good things about this hostel and the pictures looked nice as well
we did not feel comfortable at all, stuff was friendly and toilets and shower rooms were okay, the room was not nice with dirty sheets, in the room with the towels cats were sitting on them
I would not come here again
central place to stay, cheap
This place is below average for the city. There are hundreds of other hostels in B.A that are comparably priced and much better. This one is nothing special. No A/C, nowhere near the fun part of town, or a train line. Some of the rooms open onto the bar. Unfortunately we got one and the lady joked with us that the night before there was a party until 5 am at the bar...good luck getting any rest. As it was, there were people out there until 2am so we couldn't even open the window. The showers/ bathroom/ dish washing (all the same small room) were the worst we seen in any of the B.A hostels we stayed in. Surprised by the great reviews of this place. Final opinion: You can find MUCH better-similar priced- accommodation in B.A. Do not stop here. ***Note: Staff was friendly and the old building was cool.
Stayed in this hostel for 3 and then 2 more nights. Cant believe its rated in the 50´s on here as its one of the best hostels I stayed in in my 3 month visit to South America (Out of about 15!). The staff were helpful in every way, rooms clean and spacious, beds comfy, breakfast included (tea & croissants), tv room, free internet, movies on big screen in the courtyard at night time and fab pizza. Everyone was so relaxed as this is how this hostel makes you feel. Had the best nights sleep here also.
Lo recomiendo 100 %!! Very nice staff, very helpful, hostel nice and clean. Strongly recommend it! Barbara (Slovenia)
I had a very nice time at El Sol. I stayed there 14 days in November 2010. The location is just perfect in San Telmo. The room and kitchen was nice and over and above all a very friendly place to stay with a very relaxed and helpful staff. I am returning soonest possible.
