Liked: Great choice: showers were hot, beads were comfy, wifi worked everywhere! I stayed in the dorm and it wasn't too loud, atmosphere was fun and welcoming yet not overwhelmingly party centric. Had a great patio to hopfully use more when it is a bit warmer.. Oh and location! San Telmo was possible the greatest area for a vegan to stay in - a few nice veggie restaurants with walking distance. I will def come back a stay before I fly home!

Disliked: Nothing especially, maybe just more clear directions from the airport...

Liked: The atmosphere is great and the art works makes it beautiful

Disliked: We are in a hostel, which means we can't spend too much money. In this hostel, you can't come in with things to drink, you gotta buy it from them, but everything is more expansive than things from the market. Also, the guy from the night staff is a jerk.

Liked: A great place with an excellent layout and is easy to meet lots of people.The outside terrace is nice and inviting. The bar area and big screen is excellent. The pool table is better than most I've experienced in South America. The Wi-Fi works extremely well everywhere. The cleanliness is above average and your bed is made every day for you.Breakfast is decent. The staff are helpful. They give free tickets to various clubs etc...There are lots of communal areas.The art!Best place I have expereinced in BA.

Disliked: Bathrooms are not so private or roomy. The locker situation in dorms is not perfect as some are not available but I had one and so was no problem.

Liked: Rooms were spacious although some are very close to social areas. The art is incredible throughout the hostel.

Disliked: Not a good place to go as a solo traveler. While there is a bar it is not set up well to meet other traveler, it seems like many of the people here actually are not traveling. Cant bring alcohol in which I understand but then they charge bar prices for their alcohol. Not ideal for a traveler trying to stick to a budget. Cold showers (aka no hot water on multiple occasions).
