Liked: PAX is in a great location near San Telmo and the subway, and has everything you need. The staff were fantastic - so helpful and super friendly - and the included breakfast (til midday!) was great - fresh OJ, boiled eggs and cereal available! The private rooms are complete with TV and DVD players which was a bonus too.

Disliked: The dorm room was windowless and dark, and the promised curtains on 'all dorm beds' are only on the bottom bunks.

Liked: Not a great deal, breakfast was pretty good I guess

Disliked: Staff (the guy with the short hair & pierced ear) were unhelpful and unfriendly. They tried to charge me an extra half night for changing my booking, to which I flatly refused. Not much natural light inside at all Very small and tightly packed dorms with no windows Some communal showers No decent common room

Liked: The location is pretty good and the rooms and bathrooms are always clean, although I did get bedbugs there but that can happen anywhere. The breakfast is really good and you can help yourself to as much as you like. The orange juice is a nice touch. The two Spanish guys who work at the bar and the Brazilian guy are incredibly friendly.

Disliked: The common area is basically the reception and the library doesn't exist. Some of the staff are really rude especially the skinny guy with the long dreadlocks at reception, he is quite possibly the rudest person I have ever met and a lot of the information he provided me with turned out to be false. If they got rid of him it would be a much better place. He is awful and a lot of backpackers I met there had the similar issues with him.

Liked: Hostel was very safe and secure, clean with a good atmosphere for meeting people. Staff are friendly and helpful and after a small mishap with some late washing, the staff went above and beyond to rectify the situation. Excellent service and you get the impression they will go out of thier way to ensure you have a good stay.

Disliked: No batteries in the ipod speakers.

Liked: Staff were great and helpfully sorted out reservations etc. particularly pablo who is going to be famous some time soon. Sheets around the sides of the beds helped create privacy. Freshly squeezed OJ

Disliked: The basement where breakfast and bar and tv were, was quite dark and dingy. Kitchen facilities were composed of a sink and a portable 2-hob stove.

Liked: The communal area is comfortable, but small, forcing you to talk to and get to know other people there straight away! The staff were all very friendly and could give helpful information about getting around the city and suggestions for things to do.

Disliked: The kitchen is very basic. This wasn't a problem for me as I ate out whilst I was there, but could be a problem for people who would like to cook during their stay.

Liked: Staff are just wonderful, David, Juli and the others make you feel at home. The roof and the bar are nice to meet other travelers.

Disliked: The TV is in the bar so that makes it impossible to watch a movie at night after a long day walking around the city.

Liked: really good location, we felt very safe. where the rooms lack in things like windows the staff make up for in service. I would highly recommend this hostel for its location. We took a matrimonial room but from talking to single travellers I think the dorms are better value.

Disliked: Helen left no negative feedback.

Liked: A really cheap place on the edge of San Telmo. Clean, safe and comfortable. Subte station around the corner, walking distance to San Telmo centre, only a 20 minute walk to Avenida De Mayo. Bar in the basement, quite a sociable place. Staff are the friendliest hostel staff i´ve ever come across. Kitchen is clean and well equipped. Rooms are good, beds really comfy and bottom bunks have curtains across them. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned everyday. Free Skype calls to international landlines. Supermarket is a couple of blocks if you turn left out the door. Highly recommended, i´ve stayed there twice in the last month and have recommended it to lots of other people i´ve met along the way.

Disliked: Having to leave!
