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.

Liked: It is just a 5-10 min walk from the bus terminal, which was perfect for us since we only stayed a night between to buses.

Disliked: Not the best atmosphere, since I think a lot of people did the same as us: Only staying a night close to the bus station.
