“Caution”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2010

Be careful here. The hostel is located in a derelict neighborhood. When I arrived on a Sunday morning, the attendant would not unlock the door even with a reservation and pouring rain. Shortly after my arrival to the front door, I was robbed at gunpoint, stranded and with nothing in front of the locked hostel. When reporting the incident to the police, the sheriff exclaimed I was lucky to make it out of the neighborhood alive. I would not recommend it, but if you decide to go, proceed with caution to Punto Clave.

I stayed for three days at Punto Clave with my ten- year- old son Franco and had a great time there. The house is really lovely and well kept with decoration details not usually found in other hostels. Owners "George''(who speaks English fluently) and Santiago made us have a fun stay and were always willing to point out places of interest and ways of getting there. Although the hostel is a bit off the beaten track, it is located in a nice residential neighbourhood with many bus lines running through it and Av. Carlos Pellegrini just three blocks away . At the time of our stay (end of winter) the place was very calm, but I imagine in summertime there must be a nice party atmosphere with the swimming pool and barbecue in the patio. Great kitchen and very clean all over. I'm happy I made this choice in this beautiful city.

My girlfriend (now: wife) and I stayed at Punto Clave on August 6th-9th 2008. We had the time of our lives here. The hosts Sebastian and Santiago were really warm and friendly people. Although our spanish was crap then, and they only spoke spanish, we got along really well. One of the highlights wa a giant asado on the night we left for Cordoba. The gemelos (twins) hospitality is unforgettable and the advice they gave us for excursions in Rosario were excellent as well. Try the Rosario biking tour by (another) Sebastian, who's fluent in several languages and knows alot about lovely Rosario. While travelling for 5 months around the world and staying in several excellent places, Punto Clave stays firmly in our hearts forever. Punto Clave rules, gracias a Seba & Santi!
