Liked: The hostel is basic, but clean and functional. We stayed in a 4-bed dorm which had comfortable matresses and large lockers for our backpacks. The staff were very friendly and responsive to our questions. The breakfast is pretty standard, with cornflakes, bread, jam and tea/coffee. The location is great, close to the bus station and one block away from a large supermarket. The main square is about 10 minutes walk from the hostel. Overall, a good hostel with a chilled feel and the price is reasonable.

Disliked: The outdoor common area is great, but many of the dorm rooms are located right next to it so if there is a rowdy crowd at night it would be difficult to sleep. The kitchen is basic, with only cold water to wash dishes. Not too many concerns however, I think it's a good hostel overall.

Liked: I had a really wonderful time in this hostel. The staff are great and very helpful. I came down with a bug here and they had a doctor come to the hostel for an onsite consult for only 20 pesos.

Disliked: The pillowcases don't fully cover the pillows. For one day and night there was a dog that would not stop making dreadful moans and crying noises as if it were dying.

Liked: The staff were great!! Most helpful and lovely staff I have come across in South America! Other people in Salta seemed reluctant to help us but the hostel staff answered all of our questions and were extremely helpful with recommendations as well as helping with our further travel plans! The breakfast was good, kitchen was nice and lockers were secure and nice and big.

Disliked: There was no aircon so very hot. Toilets were nice but I think they clog so often it is hard for cleaning to keep up! Easily forgiven due to the wonderful staff and positive atmosphere!!
