Liked: there were two kitchens which was ok.the breakfast was normal. not a big whoop.

Disliked: we walked in and a not so welcoming face said there is no room. after we said we have a reservation he tried to be nicer, only for us to know that we were about to pay more than what hostel bookers stated.HE CHARGED US 5 PESOS MORE due to some greedy desire and bullshiting us on the dif currency charge between hostel bookers or whatever.the rooms had no keys, meaning no privacy, no safety.the lockers were a hot mess, run down and falling apart.the bathrooms were a mess, the crew was not helpfull, and the same unwelcoming guy at the desk tried to push too much for us to stay longer. i will def not come back there again.absolutly never.

The property's response is

The dollar cotization is 1US$=5AR$.You can check that on internet.Some places in ARG take the dollar per 7 AR$. You reserved beds in dorms . Dorms means no too much privacy because they are shared rooms. You have your own locker to put yours stuffs under lock . We are sorry if you get a messing bathrooms, we have cleaning service 7 days a week . We just ask you if you would like to stay for more days just to organize our reservations. We are really sorry if you had not a nice stay with us .

Liked: Informal atmosphere and helpfulness of the owner

Disliked: We were welcomed with the words " no hay lugar" very unprofessional attitude, since we made reservations. Maybe a young kid needs some training before taking over the front desk.

Liked: The hostel had a nice atmosphere and the kitchen and eating area was nice.

Disliked: They tried to make us pay in US $ which is pretty ridiculous when we are traveling around Argentina for 6 months and the currency is pesos.

Liked: Near the city centre. Friendly receptionists although most of them only spoke Spanisch and could not help a lot with excursions. Big lockers where all our luggage fit in (one big and one small backpack).

Disliked: The kitchen could be cleaner.
