Liked: It is in a central part of the city close to the subway.

Disliked: It is really hard to find because when we arrived there was no sign near the doorbell so we had to guess. The bathroom tiles are getting of and they don't clean it very well. Also don't expect any breakfast; there are only a few croissants who dissapear very quickly.Sometimes they forget about breakfast and the croissants will only come about 10.30!

Liked: A nice hostel in a good location near to metro stops and within walking distance to the main street Florida and a large number of restaurants. The staff were very helpful and provided us with a heater when it was very cold one evening!

Disliked: The hostel does not have a sign outside so you have to look carefully for the number and then a small name on one of the buzzers!

20 May 2011

Liked: close to the subway stations

Disliked: Although the staff were friendly, they are very disrespectful to the guests - it was the staff partying with their friends/girlfriends at all hours of the night - difficult to sleep as the noise really travels - maybe a 'quiet after 2300 hrs' rule???? Then there was the cleanliness - lots of staff but nobody bothers to clean the bathrooms. I left after a few days as it was just not clean enough for me. Found a much better hostel - Chillhouse - little more money but clean and better location - worth it for me.

Liked: Great location, really friendly staff and great place to meet people. Feels like you are staying in somebody´s house rather than a hostel. Really spacious, (2 tv rooms),big dorms too. Allowed to bring your own drinks in to which makes a huge difference.

Disliked: No sign on the wall outside, but other than that, really good!

Liked: The hostel has a very relaxed environment. It also has a great location - it was very close to the city center as well as buses and two subte lines, and there were a lot of grocery stores nearby. It very easy to meet other people, has a good kitchen and areas to hang out. It really does feel like a home, and I´ll be returning the next time I´m in Buenos Aires!

Liked: first, the "looks": it's a big flat on 2 floors, great decoration, big kitchen and place to chill. second, it's just so homy that people stay there for a long time, which feels like having roomates. great location near 2 different subte lines.

Liked: I felt at home there. It is a small hostel, very cozy and quiet. It is easy to get contact with other people there but not recommended for those who seek constant partying or first- time-away-from-home age. The metro station is very close.

Disliked: Although in San Telmo, there is nothing to do in the area surrounding the hostel. No restaurants, no places to go out. There are 2 small supermarkets nearby. The cleanliness was rather poor. I was able to talk about this fact on my last day with the owner and he promised to improve the cleaning service.

Liked: The staff was really fun and helpful. Freshly baked croissants in the morning are always good. The internet connection was reliable and a Mac to skype on was a huge plus. Plus, it was so safe that people could just leave their laptops out all day!

Disliked: Although it is in a great location, like others said, it is really hard to find. Once you do find it, sometimes the staff feels silly and answers the buzzer weird and then takes a while to open the door. Be patient! It will be worth it, even if it doesn't seem like an auspicious start.
