Liked: Mixed feelings about this place. The dorms have air-con. The staff helped out massively when I needed to get someinsurance paperwork scanned, printed, etc., after my phone was stolen on the metro. Staff were friendly. Prices for dorm beds are very cheap for BA. Nice looking place. Large rooms with lockers. In a good location, San Telmo nearby and plenty of restaurants, shops, etc. If they just tidied up, replaced a few things that they probably had when they opened (tin openers, for example!), and set a few rules about noise after a certain hour, this place could be really great. For the price, I would expect more - BA is overpriced generally though.

Disliked: The place was pretty much left to run itself. Bins were not emptied in the rooms, kitchen was very poorly equipped - they didn't have a tin opener, for example. Toilets were not cleaned - skidmarks in all of them (there is a brush, so this was partially down to lazy travelers). Also, the price is kind of a downfall for the place - it attracts the young, loud, drunken idiot kind of traveller. Downstairs is very noisy as a result. Some staff live at the hostel, volunteers maybe, very indifferent and not really experienced hostel staff. Other staff are excellent, it must be said.

Liked: One of the nicest places I've stayed, chilled out atmosphere, clean and friendly!

Disliked: Like most hostels in BA, the sign on the door is small and discrete - note down the street address to make sure you find it!

Liked: The staff is very nice and helpful. The kitchen is well-equipped and it's a great common area to know people. The toilets are clean and tidy. Good mattress and it's comfortable and quiet to sleep as the room has air-conditioner. We enjoy our stay in Arrabal very much!!!

Disliked: Just sometimes cannot access wifi in the dormbed room, but the wifi works well in common area.

Liked: Very safe - and Mariana Raoul and Marcio are the best, plus the air con is fierce if you need that sort of thing. Near San Telmo and La Boca, Puerto Madero and Centro, good amenities nearby and right on bus routes to all major stuff in Palermo. Pretty clean, although that always depends on the guests, and party if you want to join in but not if you don't. Generally friendly atmosphere.

Disliked: Nothing really - breakfast isn't amazing but you get what you pay for and this place is amazing value for money.

Liked: The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They put on a great New Year's Eve party for the guests. The hostel has lots of open common areas, and it's really easy to meet people here.

Disliked: There's only one computer ... (but perhaps that makes it easier to meet people)
