Liked: Hola I really enjoyed staying here. It has a lovely atmosphere and a well designed to allow people to meet and mix. The cleaner lady should get a pay raise as she does such a great job. Breakfast can be served very early each morning if you need to leave early and staff vey helpful to keep your cases if you need to checkout but have a later bus. I think you will like this place as I did.

Liked: super friendly and helpfull staff, close enough to bus terminal, good vibe, comfy beds with clean sheats.

Disliked: kitchen is good but a little small for the number of people using it, and bathrooms get a bit messy no matter how hard everyone tries to keep them clean, but those are both just minor details, over all it´s really good!

Liked: An all round nice hostel - nothing flashy, but served its purpose well - and close to town and facilities (supermarket, the park, ATM, bus station, etc). Nice big bathrooms and good showers. Breakfast had cornflakes. Yum.

Disliked: Common areas didn't provide an excellent opportunity for interaction - a bit spread out all over the place. No hot water in the kitchen to wash dishes (to be fair this is common in Sth America, but it is getting on our nerves).

Liked: It was much better than our previous hostel (Hostel Del Central) in Salta and the breakfast was better here even though the other hostel claims to be the best in Salta. Seems to be

Disliked: No aircon in the rooms and the walls inbetween the rooms are paper thin so it is as if your sharing a room with people next door. There is lots of noise outside the rooms really early in the morning, esp from the guy who seems to be doing the nightshift walking past the rooms when on the phone.

Liked: Nice outdoor common areas. Several tables and chairs and a nice fire pit and patio area in back with more tables and benches.

Disliked: The rooms were some of the grosses hostel rooms I've stayed in (the bathrooms, however, were fine). Also, the walls are extemely thin so the hostel is very loud both at night and early in the morning. It is very cheap, so maybe it's the best that can be had for the money, but I have stayed at other hostels in the same area that offer a much more comfortable night's sleep for only little more money.

Liked: This is a brlliant place to stay. The staff are really helpful and friendly and obviously care that everyone feels at home. They do only speak spanish but that{s fair enugh! The common areas are lovely - open air patios to relax in the shade. Breakfast is served for hours each morning, and is ready if you are doing a tour and need to leave early. Very close to bus station. I personally didn{t notice thin walls but maybe this depends on who else is stayig here!

Disliked: Only one fridge in the kitchen, which is the only storage space for everyone to put their food - definitely needs some cupboards.

Liked: Really good atmosphere and a fantastic place to meet people from all different nationalities. The breakfast was good with cornflakes and was situated in the kitchen around a table which was really good again for meeting new people and chating. It had 2 areas for either relaxing or socialising, one being a small garden area. Unfortunately we missed the bbq they do on sat night. The staff where extremely friendly and helpful.

Disliked: nothing. my fav hostel of trip so far.
