Backpacking / gap year

28 November 2012

Liked: to check out ;)

Disliked: the hostel is dirty, the staff speaks not really english, so i tried to ask the lady on the desk in spanish for some information, but she preferred to watch youtube clips or check her facebook account, In all rooms its allowed to smoke and anybody does it so, also while the breakfast. It was not a good start for buenos aires ...

Liked: The rooms are quite spacious, the location is about 10 mins from Medrano subway station

Disliked: Was difficult to find - you have to look up for the sign, which is posted on level with the first floor. No wi fi as advertised (I had to go to the Macdonalds directly opposite). None of the staff spoke much English, the hostel was full of Argentinian students, which is great for learning the language though not so great if you're hoping to meet other travelllers, as I was the only English speaking person for the duration of my stay.

Liked: Its cheap! The staff is very friendly and they have a killer terrace.

Disliked: This place is not for backpackers, but for long-term students and other long-term residents. The people who live, therefore count the place as their home, and doesnt care much about cleaning (espacially the kitchen!). So after the cleaning-lady leaves and until she returns, the place is a MESS!! Even the staff doesnt do their own dishes, because the cleaning lady does the following day..this is very frustrating!

Liked: The property had a good common area, was in a good location, had 24 hr service a decent kitchen and was safe. Breakfast was the usual one you would expect from any argentine hostel so no complaints there. Some other comments mentioned that the hostel had no knowledge of our online booking and the same thing happened to us. It didnt cause a problem, just make sure you have all the details. The main problem with the hostel is that it is more geared towards long term students and so there are no travellers there. The common area turns into a study room in the evening, or it hosts the staff meetings for an hour which is a little annoying since we paid to be able ti use the common room, not be confined to aour beds for an hour! All in all for 30 pesos it was pretty good. Make sure you double check directions as the map location given on this webiste were wrong!
