Liked: Really easy to meet people, staff were lovely and really helpful. The trip in Salta I booked from here was excellent! A great place to meet people from all across the world, having the dinner for free made it a lot more sociable. A great place to stay if travelling alone

Disliked: Location is a few blocks from the main square but very easily walkable. A little expensive for what it is.

Liked: The towels were included and the medialunas were not bad.

Disliked: The bathroom is a 1.5 M x 1.5 M space with the sink, the toilet and the shower together. The rooms don't have windows, so the air is stuffy. The walls are dirty.

01 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It had a pool, and everynight all the hostels came and had free dinner there! that was cool, however, you were basically forced to eat there because the hostel is so far out of the centre. the city of Salta is not that great anyway, the surrounding mountains and lakes and nature are well worth it though.

25 November 2009

Liked: After staying at this hostel I was bitten by bed bugs, multiple times, leaving me with a very bad infection that needed hospital treatment. The hostel was actually fumigated the day I left so the issue may have been delt with. Other than that it is a great place to meet people, with nice staff and adequate facilities. I would check the matress if you do stay....I would not go back though.
