Liked: Convenient for the bus station.

Disliked: It caters primarily for the Argentenian market and not for the internation travellers. There are no English speaking staff so can be a bit awkward if your Spanish is not good. There´s not much of a communal area to meet companions to look around town and it has cockroaches in the kitchen area.

Liked: Hot water in the showers was good.

Disliked: The walls were paper thin and you could hear the person breathe/cough/speak etc in the next room. This was especially bad if you were near the kitchen. Expect no sleep without ear plugs. Also the mattress we had was very uncomfortable and the bed linen was quite shabby.

Liked: Good place to meet people with many backpackers from around the world. Good location and staff really friendly and helpfull. The owner even asked if I would like breakfast at 5:00am in the morning, because of my early bus. The shower is hot and kitchen is big and good. Cheap and cold beer! Good heater at the room.

Disliked: The bathroom is not very nice. Really small and the toilet flush button was broken.

Liked: Genuine hot showers. The sheets were clean and the staff cleaned the toilets and showers several times a day. We booked one night and eneded up staying for three. Location is great, as is the brekkie - first time we´d had cornflakes for months!! Staff extremely friendly and accomodating and you can rent bikes for the day for a very low cost. Really enjoyed it!
