Liked: Most of the staff were great! The breakfast is good. Nice with curtain in the lower bunks. Good area.

Disliked: That I had to make my own bed at arrival (therefore I don´t understand why we have to wait 2 hours after check-out to check in). Towels not included. Noisy until late at night. A little too cold in the dorm I had (in May). Sloooooow internet.

Liked: The staff was very friendly, there where always things organised in the bar so that the guest didn't have to be borred if they don't want to go out. Overall it was ok if you see the price, but there are clearly some things that they can improve.

Disliked: Clearly a lack of maintaining the hostel, some of the toilets didn't even had doors, others had no lock and 2 showers and one toilet in one bathroom with one lock is not really a way to serve a 8-bed dorm, where the people in the room don't know each other... The bathrooms where also only cleaned once a day in the morning, that's really not enough for the amount of people in the hostel. Last point to be made, is that there are several dorms which are really to small to be a 8-bed dorm.

Liked: The facilities are awesome, very cosy and lovely decorated, with lot of space to relax and to socialise with others. I liked the social area at the reception desk a lot! In general the atmosphere was very personal and relaxing which is perfect in a busy town as BsAs. The rooms were always clean and cosy as welI, even the 8-bed-dorms. It is easy to meet other travellers with the same interestes but you can also finde some space for yourself to read or just hang out. Nice offers like pizza or empanadas in the evenings and always people around for a beer or two).The staff was extremly helpful, communicative and in a good mood, they always had some extra information and supported me even when I had problems!!

Disliked: The kitchen is quite small and the hostel located some minutes away from the main tourist area, on the other hand its not as noisy and busy as in other areas and still very easy to reach.

Liked: It had a good, hot shower

Disliked: We just didn´t feel comfortable ´hanging out´ there. The bar seemed to be the only social area and being underground, felt somewhat dark, cramped and somewhat stuffy.
