Liked: the only good thing was the location, the rest is very very poor... one day, in breakfeast, we did find a butterfly dead inside the juice jar... the staff was unhelpful, except for one guy, who helped us with some directions, but in a general way, it was not a pleasant stay at the hostel... the room is average, the beds also, but in a complete evaluation I would say it was one of the worst hostels i've ever stayed in...

Liked: The main things that I like about this place was that fact that we could chose when we arrived, and as we got in to MDP at 6am it was great to be able to go straight there. Also the use of a kitchen so we could cook when and how we wanted was great

Liked: Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. This home away from home is chilled out during the week and busier on weekends, which is just what we were after! Great location right next to surf beach and some bars. My favourite hostel in Argentina so far....

09 March 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great atmosphere, good people, it's true to its name: it's a relaxed surfer hostel. The only problem we had was a bit of a mix up with which room we were booked in, but the staff did their best to rearrange us in the fairest way possible and gave the whole group the original rate we booked even though some people ended up with private rooms!
