We had booked 3 nights in this hostel after reading all the good reviews about it, BIG MISTAKE!
The whole hostel is run down, our queen bed was so uncomfy with flat pillows, bathroom in suite was a joke, so small that you can pee and take a shower at the same time!
We finally stayed only one night and we moved to an hotel 2 blocks away from there, we paid a lite bit more but it was wayyyy nicer (Wilton Hotel on Av.Callao corner Av.Santa Fe)

Sorry that we didn't exceed your expectations.
We are currently renovating the room where you stayed, because of the damage cause by a storm

Thanks for your comment, anyway, we are working on fixing the issues you mentioned.

regards

El Sol Team

The old Parisian building is gorgeous and in a really good location. The staff are all nice and very helpful. Breakfast is good. Our private room had a balcony the overlooked the street outside which was pleasant but very noisy in the mornings. Also, image had some very noisy neighbours in the room next to ours and the wall provides no sound barrier. Other than that, we had a good time.

I've been travelling around the world staying in hostels and I can quite confidently say that El Sol and BA are at the top of my list of places to go back to.

Clean, comfortable, great location, great atmosphere and lots if helpful staff and long term residents.

Fantastic Saturday nights at the roof bar with live music and generally full of interesting people.
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

We missed our flight so we got the pleasure of staying an extra day in Buenos Aires.

This place is just okay. It is not great and it isn't bad, especially if you are into the arts. The private room was kind of beat up for being a private room, and was right next to the desk, which is where the common area is, so it did not seem so private, for those who want it.

The place has an upstairs bar, which serves pizza and, you guessed it, drinks. It is the main gathering place other than the small common area where the television is. The night we were there they were showing a documentary which was rather fascinating.

The breakfast is bread bread and more breads. They speak both english and spanish there.

This hostel is a great place to stay in Recoleta - close to everything in one of the best neighborhoods in BsAs. There is a great patio bar where you can get cheap beer and relax with friends and other guests. All of the staff is really helpful and friendly, and the owner is a great guy! We also enjoyed hanging out with the cat, Ty.
