Liked: The staff were very friendly and always happy to provide detailed info in response to requests for info, etc. It is a sociable hostel and easy to meet other people. Good location in San Telmo and buses or Subte close by. Dorms area good size and

Disliked: The design of the hostel means noise travels up from the common areas so it can be a bit noisy at night time.

Liked: The staff are very helpful and they all speak really good English. Computers with internet are available 24hrs.

Disliked: Location is not the best. I didn´t feel safe going out when its dark. It´s also about 2 hours from the airport (by bus). I didn´t like that the bathrooms were unisex. Generally, there is very little privacy in this hostel with glass windows everywhere, even the bedroom door had a glass window with a see-through curtain.

Liked: It's in San Telmo, a great neighborhood, and they organize lots of events. I took a free tango lesson at the hostel that was a blast. The rooms are nice and the setup is really unique. It's definitely a nice place to spend some time in Buenos Aires and to meet fellow travelers.

Liked: Great location in San Telmo, very helpful staff. Cereal fruit and bread for breakfast was good. Drinks are reasonably priced in the bar. Would stay here again.The dormitories with balconies were nice and airy.

Disliked: The hostel is really in need of new pots and pans. Filthy, warped and worn out. They could also replace the majority of pillows as they were old and dirty looking.
