Beautiful, calm, safe compound, small but nice and a beautiful, exotic garden, computer station with free Internet. You can buy mineral water and beer from the reception, but you're also welcome to bring your own stuff, there is a clean kitchen and a fridge in one of the houses on the compound
When I arrived, they offered to call somebody who speaks English (as I do not speak any Spanish), but that proved completely unnecessary - they are perfectly equipped with free maps and brochures, I was perfectly able to understand every direction and advice they gave me. All the info was superhelpful. There is info on tours, tickets, maps of the cataracts, which bus to take to the national park or Brazil, etc.
The hostel is nicely located: calm but only a couple of minutes walking from downtown where you can find restaurants, cafes, take-away-frood, a bank, a supermarket, the main bus station.
I strongly recommend "La Misionera" at Perito Moreno, some 700m from the hostel - cheep, great, yummy empanadas (also for take-away).
I had a double room, bed was very nice; however, I stayed solo, it would have been very narrow if we'd been two people in there. The one thing I really didn't like was the location of my room: It was opposite the shared toilets and the shared living room, and it was pretty loud from that side until late at night. The only window opened directly to the entrance of the reception - again you could hear voices, shouts and laughter until late in the night and from early in the mornings on...
