29 April 2012 Astrid Emilie would recommend this property

Liked: The staff went out of their way to try and help. They asked each day what our plans were and helped us making them a reality, like spending 20 min explaining and planning an itinerary of the quite intricate public transportation system that matched our wishes, aquiring the necessary metropolitana card ect. On a mishap with our laundry where several items was lost, the staff was so sorry and apologetic that they even went out with us to shop for replacements, paying out of the hostels own budget

Disliked: At the time of our stay, the hostel was moving the kitchen from the 1st floor to the 2nd so the facilities was a bit lacking, ie no sink in the kitchen. just for the record, It IS quite a party hostel, with guest playing the guitar loudly a thursday morning at 3 am when we arrived from the airport...

Liked: Staff were really helpful. Julio speaks excellent English. He helped with anything you need, advice on approx local taxi costs, which metropolitanos to get when open. Helped advise on bus companies, and helped book tickets for the best and appropriate ones, which was well out of the way of a regular hostel. Also helped try and get tickets for the football game at Allianza Arena which is a little more dodgy than the rest of the city.

Disliked: The bar was shut at the time, which contributed to a lower tempo atmosphere, and so meeting people was restricted to people in your room if you wanted to socialise. If you want a party hostel then this probably isn't the place. Kitchen had no sink, so you had to walk up to the roof to clean any of your dishes or food, then come back down, which was a bit annoying. Bathroom was average, but wasn't always clean.

Liked: The staff was really really friendly. one of us guys had his birthday in the hostal and they sang a song and bought a cake for him. and we had such a great bbq on the rooftop with the owner of the hostel. We got all the information we needed. i only can strongly recommened that hostal.

Disliked: we got a room without a real window, so it was a bit warm in the night. but that shouldnt keep you away from this hostal.
