Liked: Good location, good beds, decent breakfast (toasted bread with different spreads, cereals and cakes to choose from), helpfull staff.

Disliked: I don't think the idea of building an ensuite bathroom in the dorm rooms was very well thought out; firstly the shower and the toilet did not have any locks, and furthermore the only wash basin is situated in the middle of the room, which is rather inconvenient if you have a late arrival or an early departure but would nevertheless like to be considerate to your sleeping dorm roommates. Plus, most of the individual bedside reading lamps did not work.

Liked: Nice vibe, helpful staff (for the most part), San Telmo is great, good for meeting other travellers, not trashy.

Disliked: Loud at night - not just in the way hostels are - the building is tall and narrow and all rooms back onto the concrete courtyard and stairwell, so noises echo constantly up it. Mostly a problem when staff are still having a party at 4am.Shower is tiny, and private bathrooms seem great, but in such small rooms, can get gross.

Liked: The hostel was more like a hotel, daily cleaning service (which I have enjoyed very much) and a lot of old travellers. But for a hostel in South America, really good service! Highly recommended.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: Good location, clean rooms. The atmosphere was pretty good - not a party hostel but still social.

Disliked: I found some of the staff to be unhelpful and kind of unfriendly - the girl who checked me in (Carolina, I think) didn't even give me a city map or explanation of where things were in the hostel (I found out on my last day that there were computers in the basement the whole time...). There was also a major problem with the shower room when I got there (eventually fixed, so no biggie) and she not only knew nothing about if/when it was going to be fixed, but seemed very annoyed that I bothered her to ask about when I might be able to bathe in my room.

Liked: Great atmosphere. You feel home. They make you feel really comfortable. You make friends there. It is very safe.

Disliked: The floor and the window of the bedroom could be a lot cleaner. Also, the mattress is not so good, but it is not horrible as well.
