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.

Lindsay Wilde

02 July 2009 Lindsay would recommend this property

Liked: This was my second stay at this hostel during my South American trip. When I came back to Buenos Aires, I knew I wouldn't be staying anywhere else. This hostel is the best I stayed in during my travels. The owner is amazing and the staff are extremely helpful. Breakfast is great, the facilities are clean and of high quality, and it is extremely safe. It is also right next to the Metro and easy to access the buses. We met a lot of great people staying there as well. I HIGHLY recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Buenos Aires- there just isn't anything better!
