Food was bad - 'breakfast' was left out for hours before it even began. Our room was dirty - mattresses were grim. We were supposed to be put in a dorm of 6, however it was more like a dorm of 12 split across a floor and a balcony. Insufficient locker space. Filthy bathroom, that stunk of urine, with a...

This place is very basic at best. It's run-down and not very clean. My shower was dirty. But, in addition, my room had only tepid water and a non-functioning air-conditioner. When I asked for a refund, the staff became rude and harassed me. I took a partial refund and left. When I wrote a review on booking.com, then immediately sent...

We stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience. Location is very good with lots of bus routes nearby , 2 blocks from subway, and in good walking distance of sights & restaurants. Rooftop terrace was quiet and a nice place to enjoy a beer in the evening Staff were very friendly and so we're all the guests we...

TLDR: Avoid, is very bad. Went in a group, some beds had blood, others pubic hairs. Rooms smelled of mold and water damage. Breakfast is hot dog buns and very bad coffee. A window in one room is broken and beds/pillows are quite old, and need cleaning quite badly. Financially those that complained and wanted refund in hour 0, just...

DON'T STAY HERE!!!!! We were a group of approx 40 people who booked for the weekend. The booking was confirmed for two nights at $160/p/p/n (pesos) We got a "special rate" because we were a big group. Only a day before arrival, we were notified by the hostel that they expected a $6000 (peso) damage deposit. We obliged. Later, we...

We reserved a room for 5 persons and they gave us a room where they put a mattress (dirty and broken) on the floor. For my health I preferred to not have breakfast there. In BA you can find many better hostels at the same price.

I wouldn't have fed the breakfast to my dog. The old female boss was the most unfriendly person we met in 8 months travel in South America, very money hungary and asked us constantly to pay each night...even at 2am. Pay a bit more and enjoy your stay!

The location is the only good thing about this hostel. The rest is a nightmare.My passport was stolen from my briefcase while using that filthy bathroom, my camera and my python cowboy boots were stolen while I was sleeping. The owner never takes responsibility for anything. A Danish couple had their things stolen, iPhone, iPod and a leather bag. Very...

Quite cheap, good breakfast service, clean room, nice shared area layout. Negative is that there are not lockers for your bags if you check out and then still want to hang around down town for the day. You ll have to leave your bags in the middle of the reception, on the visitors' side, which is not so safe.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
