"This is a great hostel if you want to be centrally located-- take note that the streets are definitely busy outside though and its at least 1km to any green space. That said, the Ecological Reserve area is in walking…"

Liked: Amazing hostel, great location, fabulous staff, clean rooms, good showers, great TV room and internet facilities! Was my favourite hostel out of 5 in Buenos Aires...the only bad thing is that you never leave and end up staying far longer than anticipated!! 10 out of 10 for sure.

Trevor Holmes

26 December 2009 Trevor would recommend this property

Liked: After Hostelbookers stuffed up our booking, it took ages to check-in at 3am, and luckily they were helpful, gave us an incorrectly discounted rate shown online, and still had a private room for us. The location is very central and easy to get around from, though while a travel service is offered, only very limited options are available.

Alex Proimos

06 October 2009 Alex would recommend this property

Liked: The location and the free walking tour. The place needs some better management, as their was confusion with respect to the promotion I was offered 'stay 5 pay 4 nights', for the first 3 nights I had no towel provided, my room heater didn't work and they 'forget' to tell people about the 'free' dinner service they offer. Also I feel that they overcharged for a number of their activities.

Customer review

02 October 2009

Liked: It is true its a great place to meet people but most of the staff were not really helpfull. I guess it depends on who you found in reception. There was a brasilian guy very nice but the others I talk to were very cold. In adition, I think it is too big considering that is a hostel and not a hotel. And there are not enough bathrooms. It is not awful but there are much better hostels in Buenos Aires. I know it because I have been in 4 diferent hostels, and I think all of them were better than this one.

Zaure Kadyrova

24 August 2009 Zaure would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was pretty cheap and had a few organized activities, such as pub crawls, dinners, city tours and various excursions. Don´t do the soccer game through them as it´s a rip off, we paid 240 pesos for a ticket with a face value of 40 pesos. It had a travel agency, where you can book your next trip, and you can book a trip to Colonia for really cheap there. We had breakfast incuded, and dinner was free every night at the other sister hostel HI Suites Florida which we could attend as well. Overall my stay there was ok, the only thing was that the bathrooms and the rooms weren´t very clean and the some staff were not friendly. The hostel itself is a bit run down and the private room had a very small twin bed. The location was pretty good and was close to everything. Taxis would cost max $5-8 USD anywhere you need to go.
