I. C. Turner thinks…

"The interior architecture is appealing, although it's not as crisp-looking in real life as in the photos. The location is adequate given that it is a fairly large city."

Liked: It's an amazing hostel, 6 floors with everything you'd ever need. The staff were so helpful in giving advice especially Barbara. We did the free yoga and tango classes that they offered at the hostel, would highly recommend. We were lucky to stay in the 8bed dorm which had a balcony, other rooms didn't have windows.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and always happy to provide detailed info in response to requests for info, etc. It is a sociable hostel and easy to meet other people. Good location in San Telmo and buses or Subte close by. Dorms area good size and

Disliked: The design of the hostel means noise travels up from the common areas so it can be a bit noisy at night time.

Liked: The staff are very helpful and they all speak really good English. Computers with internet are available 24hrs.

Disliked: Location is not the best. I didn´t feel safe going out when its dark. It´s also about 2 hours from the airport (by bus). I didn´t like that the bathrooms were unisex. Generally, there is very little privacy in this hostel with glass windows everywhere, even the bedroom door had a glass window with a see-through curtain.

Liked: It's in San Telmo, a great neighborhood, and they organize lots of events. I took a free tango lesson at the hostel that was a blast. The rooms are nice and the setup is really unique. It's definitely a nice place to spend some time in Buenos Aires and to meet fellow travelers.

Liked: Great location in San Telmo, very helpful staff. Cereal fruit and bread for breakfast was good. Drinks are reasonably priced in the bar. Would stay here again.The dormitories with balconies were nice and airy.

Disliked: The hostel is really in need of new pots and pans. Filthy, warped and worn out. They could also replace the majority of pillows as they were old and dirty looking.

Liked: The staff was super friendly and helpful. Excellent Location in San Telmo. Rooms have balcony (mine did.)

Disliked: Only that there was only one outlet in the room and that staff does not really enforce quiet hours. Some French guys came in drank at 5am drunk And smoking in the girls dorm. After they left they Were still loud next door. But that was only one night. I stayed 6 nights and loved this hostel.

Liked: The good location and friendly staff

Disliked: It was extremely loud of a night as every bit of sound from every level echos up the open centre of the building. It was also 2.5hrs from the international terminal by bus not 90 like they say. It's also $65 to the domestic not $35 which they also say.

Liked: The staff were great and helped me a lot in my quest to go to numerous football games.

Disliked: If you like a quiet night, then choose your room carefully. The open plan nature of the hostel means noise travels, and the road in front is noisy in the mornings. If you want a quieter room, then request a room on the 3rd floor and at the back. These rooms are darker as you don't have the front balconies, but they are definitely quieter in the mornings.

Liked: Wow, one of my favorite hostels! This hostel is a great combination hostel with good party (but not too much) and good facilities. The bar was awesome and probably the cheapest place to drink in buenos aires!! It works well as a starting place for the big nights buenos aires has to offer. The staff we helpful and recommended great places to go out for everything from food to parties to tourist attractions. Love the roof top terrace and the roof turtle, great asados and great place to meet people of many various origins (not just Aussie and British). I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to experience BA!!

Liked: My dorm room (of 6) was spacious and had big doors opening to a little terrace. So there was always fresh air in the room. The staff were really helpful. The rooftop terrace is a great place to hang out and relax. Also i really enjoyed the free yoga classes that occur twice a week, its not something that you find regularly in hostels!

Disliked: The street is quite busy with cars and buses, so it was noisy, but bearable.

Liked: Great staff and great hostel. Clean and spacious rooms, great showers, good water pressure and they stay hot! Great location in the heart of Tango area, San Telmo. Definitely a geat place to stay while in BA! Also amazing breakfast!

Disliked: The only downside is the bell, every time yu or anyone needs to be let in the front door buzzes. It can get annoying (I'm sure more for the staff working there!) However this is common amongest all hostels in the area and does mean you can be assured of security as people cant just wander in off the street.
