We loved our stay at Square Indepencia. Very friendly staff, decent breakfast and lovely courtyard for socialising. Great location with everything you could wish for within walking distance. The only negatives were that the WC in our twin didn't smell amazing (suspect drains) and the main showers/toilets weren't very clean, other than that a great stay and would recommend to... More

Hostel Independencia is a big hostel with a great chilled out feeling. It has 24-hour reception and absolutely amazing staff who were very helpful with everything from organising activities either with a company or by yourselves, to giving tips on restaurants or putting on Asado’s, even just hanging out and chatting on a lazy afternoon. The breakfast is great, a... More

Staff very helpful and available, perfect localization, nice decoration BUT the private rooms are random quality... If you get the good one it's all right but we got a very small and dirty one... Only bad point. Recommended

This place is not the Marriott or a Kimpton, but was a GREAT hostel to stay at. I had the private room near the front desk and was afraid of the noise being bad at night, but it was not an issue. If you're looking for a sparkling clean kitchen and bathroom this place (or any hostel) is not for... More

This place has a nice building (apart from the patchy bathroom) and is good for socialising. Staff is friendly too. But: To me, a clean bathroom and kitchen are more important than "free activities", such as two jugs of cheap wine put on a table in the common area. During our 3 nights stay in a double room, I never... More

Gonzalo and Diego are excellent hosts and they really make this place fun to stay. The free wine happy hour every night is also a big selling feature, as is the large, well-equipped kitchen and fantastic garden area. The asado they put on 2-3 times a week is a great deal, tons of delicious food. The included breakfast is also... More
