This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in in my life and as I've been travelling for a year and a half that is pretty impressive. 1. No cleaning staff - nothing has been cleaned for years. Mould, hair and grime coat the bathroom. Dust, bugs and rubbish everywhere. We asked for cleaning products to clean the bathroom...

We can start by saying it is well located, near the center and accesible, it´s cheap compared to other hostels in the area but very expensive once you list the benefits it offers. It is the perfect place for tourists that do not understand much spanish that way they will not perceive the bad attitude and bad treats they owners...

All in all, this is a nice hostel, especially when you're travelling on a budget. It's really close to the San Telmo antiquities market and the feria artesanal and there's lots of options to get food (not so much bars unfortunately). However, we had some trouble when we first got there because they had overbooked the hostel and had effectively...

This was our first hostel in South America and by far the worst. We stayed in a private double room. Our bed was two mattresses on the floor and the sheets were dirty - we slept in sleeping bag liners. The shower upstairs was pretty much a garden hose. Stay somewhere else!!

If this place was really clean I would have called it shabby chic as it's really colourful, hippyish and in an interesting old building however this place was one of the dirtiest hostels I've ever stayed in. Our room was so dusty I had an allergic reaction and woke with cold like symptoms. There are cobwebs everywhere and the toilet...

Very cheap, great character, very friendly and helpful staff and a decent breakfast included. Quite basic - the whole building could do with a bit of work but would definitely recommend for those looking for a cheap stay in a great location!

It suited our budget staying here and the location is great. The building is old, colourful and could do with some renovating. We stayed in a private room which was very basic and occasionally got 1 bar of wifi reception. There is one unisex bathroom upstairs and it sucks - dirty, missing fixtures and a blocked sink full of beard...
