Liked: Very good location. Hostel organised a good and cheap bbq that evening.

Disliked: Only 2 bathrooms for to many rooms on that floor so toilets and to take a shower was a question of some luck. When we stayed there none of the sockets worked and the fan worked only on the lowest pisition so it was hot in or room. They said the were waiting for an electrician to repair it but it could takesone time.

Liked: Extremely helpful staff. Advised us for our whole trip around salta. The staff really loves the town. It's perfectly located, but don't expect something luxury! Rooms are simple, contain just the bed. At night we didn't have water. The staff really cared about you and water was for free.

Disliked: Only little point: rooms are small and simple. But look at the price...

Liked: Very close to the main square Good value for money - 90 pesos per person for a double room Even though not all staff speak English (we should really learn better Spanish!) they were helpful and friendly Nice friendly feel about the place

Disliked: This place is older and even though it was obviously cleaned daily it still has that worn/dirty look. Didn´t promote the tours they offered. Only 3 bathrooms for the whole hostel with some of the showers not working properly. Walls seem paper thin - you can hear the people in the room next door walking around

Liked: The staff are excellent at making you feel at home. They are also knowledgeable about loca tours although I had to continually remind them to book tours for me.

Disliked: This is NOT a hostel to catch up on sleep!! Do not expect to get to sleep before midnight (or 1am at weekends). Also 3 bathrooms are not enough for a hostel of this size, especially as there are no seperate toilets. Get up early or take a shower late. Havig said that, they have great cleaners and bathrooms and bedrooms are kept clean daily.
