Liked: I ended up only spending one night at the hostel, but it had potential. Location was decent, room (female dorm) was clean, bathroom was so-so. Included breakfast was slightly above average, offering hot eggs in addition to the usual bread and cereal. Staff was helpful (although one gave me the wrong directions).

Disliked: Unfortunately there was no hot water that morning. Could've been a fluke. Or not.

Liked: Good location (near the centre of San Telmo, lots of Subte stops nearby), fantastic breakfast and a lovely bar area/rooftop terrace.

Disliked: It is a very large hostel, so can sometimes feel impersonal.

Liked: The live music at the hostel bar was excellent! Other highlights were the rooftop patio, and very funky decor.

Disliked: There is no aircon, so rooms were very hot at night. Staff were friendly, but at not particularly helpful at times, in terms of providing information on activities around the city, or even regarding things that were advertised as happening in the hostel itself.

Liked: It is indeed a great location - next to a subway station, several bus lines, the San Telmo street market on Sundays, Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada, etc, etc.The staff was always very helpful and friendly.

Disliked: They didn't clean our room (it was a twin room) on the first two days, but I don't know if that happened because it was a saturday and a sunday... anyway, they did clean it on the other days.

Liked: what a pleasing one night stay in BA at the Art Factory. all staff members were really friendly and helped to create a good atmosphere and the hostel itself is worth seeing just for its numerous paintings in the corridors and rooms. a big plus was that there were lots of showers and they all had a door and not your usual disgusting shower curtain. also there's a nice terrace where you can just chill out

Disliked: wish we had come here right away when we came to BA
