Wow, this has to be the most filthy, run down hostel I've ever stayed in. It's the kind of place where you know if you take a shower, you'll end up dirtier than when you went in. I really don't understand the good reviews here - yes, the staff was nice but this place is a run down hell hole....

First of all for me this was one of the most memorable hostel as the staff were just so lovely and helpful, they really join in and encourage a very sociable community. The beds are comfortable and clean and an affordable price. The location is very good. I would highly recommend this hostel if you're travelling to Salta, which is...

It's cheap and you get what you pay for. Nothing really good or bad to note. Clean enough although looked like it was quite a while since it has had any money spent on it. Friendly staff but they didn't really offer anything extra. Our room had no windows so was a bit miserable but again, it did the job...

The hostel was fine for the price - cheapest we could find in Salta although we still went with a 4 bed dorm rather than a private double to save a few extra pennies. The staff were really friendly and helpful although they seemed to have their friends round a lot but this is no problem. Kitchen us basic but...

We stayed there for two nights, breakfast was basic, one type of bread was ok, the other was horrible. Our rooms were without windows, one was smelly, the others had a mouse in the room (we saw it one afternoon running outside), bathrooms were ok but not properly maintained (two sinks were broken) and there were always friends of someone...

The room are rather small and some of them without window or with window inside the building. But both rooms, bathrooms and kitchen are clean. Good location in the city center. Great price for dorms.

Pretty much the cheapest hostel in Salta and good facilities. Large kitchen and reasonably priced beer.

The two girls on the front desk are very friendly and helpful. However, the place is old and run down. Rooms are small and mattresses well worn. There is no room for your backpacks so the dorms are cluttered. Bathrooms are tiny and have that gross feel about them, shower time felt like a chore. Even though the staff clean...

We found alot of accommodation in salta was booked up so we took a chance on this place which had no reviews. Our room was basically in / right beside the dining area. So it was very noisy especially at night, it was mainly locals staying there- actually at times it felt we were in a big family home. That...
