Cheap hostel walking distance to pretty much everywhere you would want to go. There isn't a great atmosphere and wasn't many people around. It would be great if they used the bar to serve beers rather than store laundry. They actually had no beer the whole time we were there so you had to go buy from the shops. At... More

First impression: an exterminator going around all the room spraying some kind of animal poison... Really old installations, old matresses, sheets, sofas... Everything in this place is very run down. Not worth it just to save a few pesos.

Breakfast is a selection of hot drinks with breads, dulce de leche, jam and a fruit. There were no double rooms with private bathrooms... More

We were pleasantly... More

I dont usually bother reviewing places I have stayed, but this place really deserves a mention. Prices are fairly reasonable, the area seemed safe and quiet and the people were absolutely delightful. The hostel itself is quiite a pretty place on the inside with a little covered outdoor patio where people socialise. The rooms were basic, but clean, with bright... More

Great little hostel, really chilled out & the staff were really friendly & helpful. Rooms were basic but when all you need is a bed, that realy doesn´t matter. Showers were hot, and the whole place was spotless. Great location too, just down the road from the Salta nightlife, 5 min walk to supermarket and shopping mall, and about 10... More
