Liked: Good location - very close to the bus station and only a 10-minute walk to the town centre. Very close to the supermarket. Good atmosphere. Cheap hostel but great value for money.

Disliked: Wi-fi had some issues, but worked fine in the end. The four-bed dorms are pretty small - would recommend staying in the six-bed dorms instead.

Liked: Decent hostel no frills but very clean, plenty of bathrooms for guests use, good wifi coverage. Decent kitchen and breakfast. Staff made us some coffee and let us take bread and jam with us for early morning bus ride which was before breakfast officially started

Disliked: Bunks were a bit narrow not much room to move

Liked: We liked that the hotel is good located; 5-10 mins walk from busterminal, 10-15 mins walk to the center plaza. Kitched is good equipped(they have pans in good condition!!;) and most of the staff are very motivated. The woman named Sylvana explains you all very well and is there for you. Breakfast is better than in average argentina hostels; you get corn flakes and quite nice bread, not the dry stuff you may know very well already;) And very important: it was very clean!

Disliked: Nothing special. It is not a brand new hostel, but still in a good shape.

Liked: Nice atmosphere, low-budget backpacker accomodation style. Very cheap but clean.

Disliked: You can only expect basic amenities e.g., breakfast is only bread with butter and jam, beds are very basic (but you can sleep in them well), and there is no "luxury" whatsoever. Place got flooded when there was heavy rain, luckily I had no electronics near the floor and was sleeping on the upper bunk bed. It dried quickly but it was still somewhat annoying.

Liked: Its kept very clean, theres a good kitchen on offer (though I didnt use it personally) and the staff are very helpful and friendly (when the internet kept failing)

Disliked: Its not a great place to meet other travellers - the only communal area I know of is reception apart from the kitchen, the top bunks were hard for me to get in and out of (as quite a shorty!), it was really quiet when I was there so maybe I was just unlucky but Iḿ glad I knew other people in Salta to meet up with in the daytime. Also not a big fan of Salta itself - 2 nights deffo enough!

Liked: Really good and helpful staff. They can manage English. I am very bad at Spanish but things worked out pretty well. The staff helped me out with my tour bookings. The breakfast was good too. No issues with the bathrooms as well. The hostel is at a 10-15 min walking distance.All in all, a very relaxed stay

Liked: Beds were comfy, there's a tv lounge, good breakfast (with real coffee!) That starts nice and early for day-trippers. Enough bathrooms for everyone. Staff are friendly and helpful but I don't know how much English they speak.

Disliked: It's quite run-down (but clean). Close to the bus terminal but still a 10-15 minute walk to the main square

Liked: The staff is nice, so is the common area. There's big lockers in the rooms and the wifi works well. There's a big Supermarket around the corner.

Disliked: The bathrooms were quite run-down, loose toilet seats and sinks that are about to fall off. The bathrooms and the kitchen could have been cleaner. There was no toast or bread for breakfast, just some type of hard scone. The area close to the Parque San Martin is not the best place to stay.
