Borges Hostel
Reviewed 21 February 2016 via mobile

Borges Hostel has some surprising entertainment in the middle of the night. While you try to sleep. Two out of three nights, some imbecile started playing repetitive blues and singing on the top of his voice at 4-5 o clock in the morning. I wish i read some reviews before because there are already complaining people a year ago. This is so disrespectful to your customers when have a silence curfew from 12:00-07:00.
Besides that our first room had a broken toilet seat and no shower curtain so the whole batroom was like a river after a shower.
Been in lot of hostels all over the world but this kond of behaviour i never experienced. I think they should kock this guy and his drunken friends out otherwise they will get what karma they represent.
Choose a nother one please this is such a great neighborhood. Your sleeping place should fit that. Good luck finding a better option. Peace.

Pictures are misleading.
Breakfast served very late. In weekend at 9:00 but in fact it was served at 9:30.
Sanitary was poor. We had to change the room because it was broken.
Then the worst was that in the middle of the night, at 4:30 pm, some ridiculous narcissistic clown started performing on his guitar as if he were in a stadion. You could here the neighbors shouting at him from their bedroom windows. Very embarrassing. And of course we woken as well, 2 days in a row.
Staff seemed only interested in them selves.
Location is good. That's all...

Avoid this hotel at all cost. The place is seemingly run by hippies and absolutely not appropriate for families with small children. Breakfast is included and contains of yesterdays cake and juice syrup. The bathroom is a dump. Completely overrated, and overpriced.

Had a great time at borges hostel all the receptionists are nice and helpfull. The place has a really good vibe and you can always find good people to talk to and drink with on the main patio. The location is excellent a walking distance from palermo street which has a bunch of nice pubs and clubs. I highly reccomend this hostel.

this was my first hostel i arrived at on my south american trip and i think it might already be the best. within 10 minutes of arriving there i was invited out with the staff and guests to a blues night and felt so welcomed by all. my stay at the hostel was great, people were respectable to the times where noise was allowed, the free breakfast was good and the people were great. great location too. would reccommend.
