Liked: Proximity to the main plaza is this hostel's only draw card

Disliked: Breakfast was stale bread and croissant, served every day until they probably could get rid of it. Rooms are very hit in the warm summer months, ceiling fan offers no relief of comfort.

14 November 2012

Liked: Quiet Hot showers

Disliked: A couple staff members were nice enough. One guy was far from friendly, in fact, unhelpful. Breakfast was very stale bread and while they had sugary cornflakes, they had no milk one morning. I asked for more milk, the guy said "no, we don't buy any today". Then he got someone else's private own milk out of fridge and gave it to me...that was very off anyway! Rooms are sooooo dated and unattractive. Absolutely zero ambience or atmosphere going on. Wouldn't recommend it...but...ok if you're there for a night or so and want to be central.

Liked: A very well located property with friendly staff. The roof terrace is not very inviting but the Plaza Independica around the corner has plenty of atmosphere to enjoy alfresco. The rooms only have fans and can get quite hot during the warmer season, breakfast is nothing exciting.Overall a friendly and comfortable property in a great location.

Liked: great location in the centre of town and only ten blocks from trandy Balarce restaurants and bars, I can see that if you get a front room it could be noisey but I had a room at the back and it was very quiet. Cable TV , AC and a heater should you need it in room and lovely terrace at the back of the hostel. Also a decent breakfast included in the priceGreat hostel for the price range
