Liked: The breakfast was good and it was nice that they had computers available.

Disliked: The night manager invited all of his friends (who were not staying in the hostel) to come over and party all night in a place where we could hear it. Then the next morning he was so hung over that he didn't hear the person ringing to bell to be let in for about 2 hours. It was pretty unpleasant.

Liked: Wonderful, very helpful and friendly staff who are generous and caring. Great location that's very walkable to the central city and San Telmo. Lovely breakfast area.

Disliked: The upstairs bathrooms need regular cleaning. They are unhygienic with overflowing used toilet paper bins, unwashed areas, and poor floor drainage. Breakfast is supposed to be ready at 9am but is usually late - up to an hour late. This causes problems for people who've planned their days and are kept waiting. Please get both these issues sorted. They detract from what is otherwise a great choice of hostel.

Liked: It felt safe overall. Nice layout of the hostel. Free wifi and 2 pcs in the reception. Most of the staff were very accommodating. It was very quiet when we stayed and felt chilled out. Good cable tv providing tv in Spanish & English.

Disliked: The hostel had no maps left during our stay so it made our first day a bit trickier getting about til we could get one elsewhere. The en suite bathroom was poor - the floor was pretty dirty & the shower had lots of little broken tiles & wasn't so clean so we had to shower in flip-flops. If the bathroom was cleaned up & repaired then the room would be basic but perfectly fine for a hostel.

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!

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!
