“CAREFUL of some staff, but well located, nice rooms/showers”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This hostel was great and our experience was only slightly dampened by one member of staff Marco/Roma...

He welcomed us warmly and he befriends you quickly, but is also quick to take advantage of you with his overbearing personality. This hostel is run mostly by volunteers, a great concept, and I understand the need to work for free or earn money to travel and extend your experience, but it should not come at the expense of your clients. Examples include taking over the 'communal' kitchen for 3 consecutive nights to cook pizza's to SELL to your guests, and screwing you on the exchange rate ('don't tell my boss' because the boss actually gives you a better rate..) Lesson to be learned, don't screw your clients as it may come back to bite you. His repetitive 'jokes' about your nationality start unfunny and decsend towards boring very quickly.

Aside from that, it is a great hostel, the other staff are friendly and it seems like a one big family. The showers are great, cleaned loads and the communal spaces are great for hanging out in. The room was nice and warm and the breakfast improved on the last day as some pastries were added to compliment the breads/jams/cake that are offered.

Well located within easy walking distance to both the bus terminal and the Plaza St Martin (change money there in the shopping arcade behind the red CAMBIO place - best rates).

Could do with a bit of love / paint and freshening up in places but overall an enjoyable stay

Room Tip: Room 7 was quiet and close to the showers although Wifi does not reach this far

A good chill out party hostel in Cordoba. Great staff who were really friendly and helpful. A big plus that is not very far from the bus terminal and the center. Everything in a walking distance, supermarket, laundry service, mall and clubs. Definitely going there again if I go to Cordoba again.

The hostel is located very close to the centre, with easy acces to museums, parks, grocery stores and the bus station, in case you want to see the sierras of Córdoba and not just the city. The staff is very helpful, they have maps, free tickets and guides that help you make the most of your trip (for example, go skydiving!). The atmosphere was amazing, the workers made all the guests feel good and made it a really positive experience. I definitely recommend this hostel if you are looking for one in Córdoba, I stayed five days and will definitely come back:) and plus it's cheap, less than 100 pesos for a common room bed and happy hour beer is 10 pesos a litre (cheaper than supermarket), so it's a good price, especially since it comes with breakfast and the whole experience included!

Room Tip: There are rooms for two, for four or for eight, and they're all really good and comftrable:)

Great hostel with good facilities, very welcoming, young atmosphere and the staff are really helpful. In addition, the hostel is in a great location : between the bus terminal and center of the city. The hostel offers third party services such as skydiving, bus tickets and snacks for good prices.

Thank to all of them!
