Liked: The kitchen and lounge area is nice, easy to meet people. Rooms are fairly spacious. Some lockers are broken, but the ones that work are secure. Bathrooms are decent enough. It is easy to get to the centre, a subte and San Telmo, but it isn't the nicest street.

Disliked: The staff aren't as helpful as many reviews make out. A lot of the time they insist on applying the rules to the letter without any common sense, try and overcharge you, or avoid giving discounts which you are entitled to. They charge a corkage fee to bring in bottles, and weren't able to provide bottled water at night, a pain considering there weren't any shops open nearby.

Liked: Excellent staff and great communal areas make it very easy to make friends

Disliked: Be great if breakfast lasted past 10am - but only because we'd been having so much fun at night it was hard to get up in the morning.

Liked: Nice hostel, Staff were absolutely amazing! In a nice quiet area just near av. de julio. Close to supermarkets and restaurants, and the hostel had a free pool table. Amazing ice cream shop just up the road too!

Disliked: The toilets were only cleaned once per day, so they werent in the best condition.

Liked: Cozy place close to San Telmo's restaurants, cafes and bars. Chilled out atmosphere and lovely common area with pool table, TV, couches and internet. Kitchen was a bit small but functional. Bathroom came with a hairdryer - I thought it was a nice touch although I did not use it myself. Staff was friendly.

Disliked: Just a tad away from the city centre (20 min walk). But as said, handy for San Telmo area and personally I did not mind the walk at all.

Liked: This is a great hostel! No wonder it was ranked No. 1 on hostelbookers when we made our reservation. The location is handy to San Telmo where we found lots of restaurants, cafes and bars, and an excellent Sunday market. The common areas at this hostel were big and comfortable, and gave guests space to chill out or socialise depending on what they felt like doing. I liked that the dorms were well insulated from the common areas so that I could sleep without the noise of parties downstairs bothering me, or party without worrying that people wanting to sleep couldn't. Staff were a friendly and helpful bunch too, and made our stay even more memorable.

Disliked: Free towels would be nice, but I guess most hostels in South America don't offer this service.

Liked: Spotless clean, someone cleaned bathrooms and showers every day always clean, airconditioned rooms, really friendly staff, rooms not cramped, good kitchen area and open tearrace and pool table. Staff couldnt of been nicer, and also on New Years, they organised bbq event for 45 peso each and free beer / wine for everyone included. At midnight they gave free champagne and did fireworks. Was a great feast and everyone participated and we then headed to a club afterwards, all organised by them. Staff were excellent.

Disliked: nothing! Honestly say was the best hostel so far.
