Liked: I loved my stay there! The hostel was nice, most of the stuff really really helpful and nice and it was soooo clean. The breakfast was great (fresh bread, jam, butter, dulce de leche, eggs, juice, COFFEE!), the rooms where clean and the beds comfy. I loved, that they made the bed every day. (: There were 2 computers that could be used. The subte station was very close and from there you could go to the centre in some minutes. There was a lot of information on tours and stuff you could do. And they do bookings for the airportshuttle for you. There is a nice panaderia next door. It felt very safe- the lockers are cool! They are really big and under the beds. I liked to have a curtain in front of my bed.

Disliked: Sometimes there were strange people hanging around at the reception. o.O The bar wasn´t too nice to chill out. And the empanada night was crap- if you want to get drunk it´s nice but the empanadas aren´t worth the money.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: It lacked toilets, the two it had ran out of toilet paper and the bathrooms weren't clean. Nowhere pleasant for communal areas, the kitchen, dining, bar was in a dingy basement and roof top terrace lacked plants and atmosphere, basically a tiled square about 3x3m with a couple of chairs and an ashtray. Locks on the lockers weren't attached properly or secure.

Liked: Good breakfast and showers, very helpful staff. Excellent option in Buenos Aries, especially if you are staying there for a week or two - quiet enough and enough socialising going on in the bar area if you are having a few drinks and want to go out..

Liked: Great hostel. Nice rooms, excellent showers, decent wifi, staff were great and I met some nice people here! Breakfast was also much better than the usual bread-and-jam.

Disliked: Little bit further from attractions than I would have liked, but the subte was easily accessible.

Liked: Really good atmosphere with very helpful staff and a great price within Buenas Aires. A good bar and a very good breakfast with plenty of available deals each night and events that you can book directly through the hostel.

Disliked: Location is a little bit of a walk from the main centre of Buenas Aires but the area is perfectly safe and the staff are always happy to help you locate anything you wish to find.

Liked: GREAT hostel! Loved staying here - great atmosphere (really good place to meet people), really helpful and friendly staff, dorm rooms all have lockers, the (included) breakfast is really good, the wifi is last and reaches everywhere in the hostel, they let you use their skype account to call landlines overseas, and it's reallly cheap!

Disliked: Nothing major. The dorm beds aren't great - you can't sit up on the lower ones (because the top bunk it's very high), and the top ones don't have privacy curtains or any railing (and they're pretty narrow beds - restless sleepers beware!)

Liked: very clean and organized (constant cleaning and maintenance), close to Indepencia subte and main avenues, breakfast is great (fresh-squeezed orange juice, hard-boiled eggs, etc.), lots of activities promoted/organized by the staff, San Telmo is a nice area for the cultural aspects and easy access to other parts of the city

Disliked: far from Palermo; although they offer/promote nightly activities, it doesn't seem to be much of a party hostel, not as social/populated as I would have hoped, but then again it's off-season

Liked: good breakfast and helpful staff and comfortable beds.

Disliked: check out time is 10am, way to early for a city like BA. there was nowhere cosy and warm to go and hang out, the tv room was in the bar so could never use it in the evenings as the music was always on. Had to ask for the heating to be put on and no ipod speakers in our double room.
