We loved the location of Eco Pampa Hostel. It's situated in the heart of Palermo Soho, design district in Buenos Aires. We stayed in the private room, which was very clean and well decorated. The rooftop has a veggie garden and in the entrance they have a nice area to read traveling books and share experiences with other travelers. Prices we're reasonable.
Right around the corner there is a beautiful artisan shop owned by a lovely lady called Rosina, who sells beautiful objects made by indigenous artisans. Worth having a chat with her.

I spent 4 nights at Eco Pampa Hostel and I thought it was excellent value for money. The place was clean (beds were made daily) and the people were helpful. It is in a great location to explore the Palermo neighbourhood. Excellent security as well.

This hostel is very nice, clean and has everything you need there or nearby. Hostel rooms are not so big, but roof is high and every room has its own bathroom. No Aircon, but fans in the ceiling (ours made a lot of noise, but I guess thats fixable). Nearby you find Don Julio, great restaurant, gym, cafes and bars and a short walk from the Plaza Italia where the metro takes you anywhere. Breakfast is simple but good, staff is very friendly and helpful.

I paid about 90pesos per night on weeknights and 96 on weekends in the 8-person mixed bedroom. I requested that room because I was staying for a whole MONTH and there are only 2 non-private rooms with air conditioning (room 3 and room 4). Air conditioning is turned on only from 10pm-10am, which by the end wasn't working for me because I was on a vampire sleeping schedule.

During the time I was there, the wifi went off maybe 10 times (luckily there's wifi at the cafe/bar across the street), and the electricity went out 3-4 times (once for more than 24 hours). Apparently this is "common" for summertime in Buenos Aires, but the heat was sometimes too uncomfortable for sleeping.

People were mostly very friendly. Lots of travelers from all over the world and the staff was amazing depending on who was at the door. I had the most positive experiences with staff members William and Eduardo, both of who would be great assets to any customer service job (professional AND friendly).

At some point during my stay the price went up to 108pesos, even though I had reserved the space a month in advance. Nobody had explained that to me, so I paid more than I originally thought I would.

The hostel is clean---there are maids who clean the rooms, all the bathrooms, and kitchen every day. Whatever messes are made on the very same day by the occupants.

The beds are noisy. The ladders bang VERY loudly against the bed. I was lucky enough to have very nice/considerate roommates for most of my stay. I only really had a problem at the very end, when 7 brazilian boys moved into the 8-person room. They were best friends and chatted loudly in the room all the time, taking noise levels up to party proportions, even when I was sleeping. I asked them to take the noise outside a couple of times, and in the end just gave up and moved out 3 days early.

If I come back to Buenos Aires again I would stay here if I need a couple of days, but I will never stay here for more than a week again. Had the Brazilians Besties not stayed in my room for the last few days, I would have had a MUCH more positive experience. Strangers are usually very respectful, but in a hostel you never know who you'd get.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 4 are the only group rooms with Air Conditioning. After a shower in room 4 leave the bathroom door to the hallway open so that the room doesn't get humid and mildewy later. Get up early if you want fruit. There will be one bowl of chopped fruit, no matter how many people are staying in the hostel.

Don't go there. Extremely unhelpful staff who looked at me as if I was dirt throughout, and seemed entirely uninterested throughout, while the unclean, lumpy mattress and near-constant noise ensured there was no chance of a decent night's sleep.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.
