Good 6.0
An ok hostel
Good location, great service at the reception. The rooms need refurbishment because it gets pretty cold and very noisy at night. Would recommend for people on a budget.

Great hotel in a great location!
The room was great, very clean with a clean and modern bathroom. It was in a great location, with lots of great bakeries, bars and restaurants nearby. I'd recommend Bar El Federal and Europa. The hotel also arranges lots of activities. We had an opportunity to try maté and learned about it for free, and also to do a tango class for a good price. The only issue was some other hotel users, who were discourteous when they returned late at night, making lots of noise and waking us up. Other than that, a great stay!

Wonderful hostel
Really nice hostel. Lovely staff and activity board. Comfortable dorm, own power point and locker. Small, but good bathroom facilities. Really nice communal area downstairs with tables, chairs, couches and outdoor seating and pool.

Good location but room not worth the money
The room smelled bad and the AC is either on or off, no chance to alter temperature or fan.

Clean and hip for a bargain!
Really nice hostel. I was in a room of 4, only 1 bunk bed. Each bed has its own light, power outlet, and 2 pockets to store or charge items. Parrilla 4 doors down with sandwiches starting at 90ARS! Pool needed city clearance but nice outdoor area. Big dining area with indoor and outdoor seating. Nice tiling and painting throughout.
