Decent value, a basic hostal with 8 to a dorm room. 5 mins from the main street but far enough away to be quiet. Good showers. However, not the cleanest, and security not great. Staff were ok, aimed to please but not much English. Only stayed one night which was fine, but went elsewhere when we came back to El...

I stayed in a dorm. I only booked this place as accommodation was in short supply due to a music festival. By way of context, I'm a budget traveller 6 months into a RTW trip and my level of expectation is extremely low. I am NOT a 5-star diva! The staff are, without exception, extremely unfriendly and simple requests such...

Blankets seem dirty. the kitchen was the worse part ...so dirty and greasy. there was no plates or ustensils. we complained but...

This hostel was a rip off! We paid 150 arg peso per bed in a 9 bed mixed dorm. It was unhygienic for the following reasons: clean sheets had hair and stains on them. Dirty mouth guard and ear plugs on floor (never mopped). Shower was filled with hair. Pillows were unrecognizable. Towels not provided. (If they were we still...

Whatever you do...DO NOT book this Hotel/Hostel!!! After nearly 7 weeks of travelling through South America, this is by far the worst place we have stayed. The list of issues is too long to include in this review but what I see to be the fundamental problem is the the people in charge just don't care!! Even a smile as...

Stayed in 12-bed dorm for 3 nights, we were alone in there because of the low season. I thought it was really nice and the price was reasonable. Everything nice and clean. Only negative things are the fact that breakfast is not included, and the communal kitchen which is disgusting and badly equipped and not of the same standard as...

Booked for 3 nights here, only stayed 2. It was not possible to get our money back. The dorm we were staying in was empty (just as allmost the whole hostel) but still very dirty. The pillows were disgusting so I decided to sleep without, and there were lots of hairs in the showers. Staff is not very friendly or...

Kitchen is dirty, Light is missing in the small rooms and everything is sooo small in there. The bathroom is being used by 20 different people. However, I would stay there IF the prices would be accurate AND the staff would be friendly. But they are not. Stay somewhere else. You might get WiFi if your are next to the...

1. The place is dirty, biscuit crumbs, hair, run down furniture, torn sofa in the lobby, generally unpleasant. Has an Eastern European dormitory feeling to it. 2. The staff, for the lack of a better word, is hostile, to the level that they only let you check in if you pay in advance. Given that it's Argentina, credit card doesn't...

“I had a room on the ground floor, although usually prefer a higher floor. Think the higher floor rooms should be more comfortable.”
