Liked: It was quite, the staff were both friendly and helpful, I felt safe as I am a woman travelling for the last week by-myself in a country where I do not speak the language

Disliked: It was very hot and not all the rooms have airconditioning, but I prefered that to not having a extirior window.

Liked: Its cheap. The location is great (if you like San Telmo, like me)

Disliked: Bit grubby to be honest. The rooms, the tiny bathroom (with the loo/shower door which didn't even shut properly let alone lock), the kitchen, all pretty skanky. But hey, you get what you pay for. It was fine for a night. I wouldn't like to be there a week.

Romantic getaway

25 January 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Regarding property I like it the atmosphere I felt a piece of tango and the wish to become everything what's new appears old in a sophisticated argentinian way in that place, also the kindness of staff always very welcoming in any doubts. The charming architecture, decoration and cleanliness was great. Bedrooms very well set up, good kitchen and free access to internet with computers and wifi available. Cosy and discreet place to stay. Breakfast is good... bread (delicious), butter, jam, milk, flakes, coffee.

Disliked: Kitchen is not well equiped anda little dirty, almost ok.

Liked: Comfy beds, helpful and friendly staff, plenty of common area space, decent sized kitchen, nice building - wall paintings and other stuff give it a good atmosphere

Disliked: Stayed in a 6 bed dorm - cramped, 4 beds would have been more suitable. Place was a bit dark, lockers in the rooms were metal and really noisy, lots of stairs

Liked: The location was fantastic. Very close to the Sunday San Telmo market, and stores and restaurants close by. I also liked the rooftop terrace.

Disliked: The shower didn't have anywhere inside the room or nearby to keep clothes and towels dry. But it was clean, and otherwise a good shower.
