Liked: Really great hostel! The layout makes it perfect to meet other travellers and the communal areas are brilliant (esp the movie area). Breakfast is good, staff are very friendly when answering questions. Supermarket, laundry place and bus terminal all near. Dorm are big with massive lockers and the beds are firm and solid unlike many others in South America. Would definitely recommend.

Disliked: Nothing.

Disliked: A key for each person in the dorm room would have been helpful. We only got one.

Liked: The staff are extraordinary - so helpful and kind from the beginning, and after we returned from a disasterous trip to Cachi in which we were robbed by the owners of Hostal Ikeñan they helped us enormously, their phonecalls threatening to go to the police got us our passports back and they then personally took us to the tourist police to file a report. And after 2 of us contracted food poisoning on the day we were supposed to be checking out they allowed us to sleep off our ills in the room until 2pm without charging us anything extra or hassling us at all to clear out of the room. The accomodation is clean and there are good facilities - kitchen, internet throughout, tv chillout room and facilities for handwashing. And very good value!

Disliked: No complaints!

Liked: Great hostel! Dorms are cosy with huge lockers, plenty of blankets and heater. Large, well equiped kitchen was very sociable in evenings and a supermarket is just a 1 minute walk away. Heaps of bathrooms/showers with hot water. Large outdoor area with tables/benches and an undercover area with big flatscreen and DVD´s. Staff were very friendly - ¨consider the hostel your home until leaving for bus´´ which was nice considering bus left at midnight. Good price, 24 hr reception - highly recommend!

Disliked: Careful when walking out as footpath is narrow and buses come past.

Liked: fantastic hostel and the staff are some of the friendliest I've met. I needed a doctor for a non emergency and the staff still had the doctor there within half an hour. Nice breakfast and they are very relaxed with the time it ends.

Disliked: The 4 bed dorm was more like a two bed dorm in size but it doent distract much from such a great hostel.

Liked: It was in a really good location and easy to reach the main plaza... the breakfast was really good and they had real cornflakes...yay! The staff were very nice and very helpful!

Disliked: The kitchen is a pain to use as its not very well equiped to handle a full house... everyone seems to hang in the kitchen which makes it hard to cook!

Liked: A really great hostel that I recommend for anyone travelling in Salta. The hostel staff were all so friendly and helpful throughout my stay...they even make the effort to get to know each traveller in the hostel individually which made it feel so home-like and personal. The hostel was clean, there were hot powerful showers, decent breakfast, a big open kitchen area and a great common area outside...a really relaxed but great place to meet people!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: I like the vibe, the chilled atmosphere, the hot powerful showers, and that the people who run the place treat everyone with the same respect, friendliness and hospitality. The location is good too and the beds are comfy :-). A feel-good place in a lovely city!

Disliked: Nothing really ... maybe it's not ideal that the common room is a tent in the garden where some of the dorms are located because the noise level from that tent can be high. But that's a minor issue.

Liked: Kitchen good place to meet people, big lockers in rooms, free towel

Disliked: Because of the wireless (which is definitely good to have in a hostel) the common room was only used by people checking e-mail, fb etc, hard to get in contact with people there, the kitchen was better for that even if it was a little crowded. About 7-9 blocks from the city center.
