Ideally 3.5 stars...Awesome staff, very lovely. Has the potential to be a really cool spot, cool little rooftop space for a couple of beers. but generally could do with a bit of a spruce up, some better bathrooms with more hot water. Sharing 2 bathrooms between a whole floor was a bit frustrating when everyone seemed to want it at... More

The most helpful staff of any hostel we have ever encountered. They made every effort to make sure that our stay was enjoyable and that we saw as much of BA as possible.

Ok, so I have rated this hostel with the price in mind. It is one of the cheapest hostels in BA so please remember this, you're not going to get 5 star quality for this price. What you do get are some of the most helpful staff (Fabian and Reine) in BA and a clean, basic hostel. It's also just... More

The staff were so lovely and helpful. The free breakfast was okay. The room was pretty hot and noisey from the road. The location was good being close to a subway that can take you straight to plaza del mayo. Overall was really pleasant

My stay at garden house was pleasant and the staff were very, very helpful to get me directions and advice for going around town. They have a lovely terrace and a great library! Many resources and it was easy to get to coming into town. The neighborhood nearby is also interesting. Thank you Reina for your help! 😊 Emily, USA

Friendly staff are helpful , all the amenities you need such as luggage storages and wifi. The road is a bit loud and the rooms are quite hot but overall the location and atmosphere is great, good value for money I would recommend to any budget travellers.

The Garden House is a recommender for people that like a relaxed vibe. I stayed here for 2,5 weeks and enjoyed every day of it. Especially the staff is really helpfull and nice people! So if you stay in Buenos Aires, go to The Garden House!
