We had booked this hostel and would've stayed one night (it's NOT as nice as it looks in the pictures) but the receptionist was either hangover or still intoxicated and recieved us SO poorly that we just left. Even if we lost 20 US$. You don't want to be in a place where you don't feel welcome.

We paid 600 ARS/night for a spacious private double bedroom (#7) with AC and private bathroom with hot water. The room was very clean and comfortable, and overall the hostel was quiet and relaxed. Breakfast included in price. The hostel is central, and has great common spaces - huge living room with couches and beanbags, good eating area, shared kitchen,...

In my time here, I have no complaints. Breakfast was decent. Staff were friendly. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. Location was superb. Safe and secure too. Amenities were great. Wifi was perfect. Comfortable beds and living room too. To top it all off, it was quite affordable. Would definitely recommend this to travelers in Córdoba.

Lots of room for improvement at this hostel, starting with the bathrooms, which are primitive and soooo passe! The staff are friendly and accommodating, but there are intimidating notices "forbidding" (poor choice of word for me!) various activities, mostly common sense (no smoking), but the interdiction on bringing any kind of drink in from outside the premise is purely to...

Liked: Really nice and helpful staff, the style of the building is really nice and we had a nice room with a small balcony, Very good location. Disliked: Kitchen and bathrooms were not really clean and you are not allowed to bring ANY drinks from outside the hostel which is a little annoying

Great location a few blocks from some of Cordoba's main sights, but this place really lacks atmosphere, which is odd as it has large communal spaces, including a roof deck and a pool table. Not great in terms of cleanliness - the bathrooms always seemed to have dirty water on the floor - and the kitchen really could do with...

Went here because it was suggested in the lonely planet book. it's in a pretty central location and looks pretty good when you first get there - open communal space etc. one of the workers knew English which was helpful, and he was happy to help us. We did get robbed though. Both my partner and myself had hundreds of...

“Stayed in the dorm in the front, it has a balcony overlooking the street and allows more air into the room, although it is noisier than the larger dorms at the back”
