    I Stayed there for only one night and went away because didn't have the courage to stay any longer.

    The room I booked wasn't available and we (me and my husband) had to sleep in a 6 bedded room. The room and the blankets were dirty. The blankets weren't enought for the could weather. There were people smoking and talking loudly in front of our bedroom until early in the morning. The restroom was dirty and very small. The stuff used at breakfast (cups, knifes, etc...) seemed very old and poorly cleaned.

    The room was clean

    The bathroom was too small. There were no enough space between the toilet and the shower. The bed was not comfortable

    The location is excellent

    People of the hotel very welcoming and helpful. Room shared bathroom and kitchen clean. Hotel quiet.

    Breakfast too simple no milk no butter no hot chocolate no juice

    The location was good. It was also available as other places had been taken; otherwise I would've never chosen this hostel. Wireless internet connection was fast and reliable.

    Showers were next to nonexistent, there was a club of sorts next door (upstairs?), so it was hard to sleep at night. The breakfast only had one type of bread and one type of jam. The overall character of the hostel didn't leave a good impression.

    -Location -Good wi-fi -Cable TV in private rooms -Kitchen with all necessary stuff for cooking -Room was cleaned daily

    -Breakfast. Compared to other hostels, very little choice, and cheap plastic cups and plates. -Very very old building with many stairs. If you are traveling with a suitcase it is very inconvenient. Overall, the building is very unattractive inside. -If you are traveling with Argentinian pesos, you have to pay the price according to their conversion rate, which is quite a ripping off. Otherwise, you can pay in dollars. -No locks for the lockers. You have to take on with you, or buy one for 10 pesos. Besides, lockers are smaller than usual and my suitcase did not fit (even though it is medium size), so I had to unpack it in order to put stuff in the locker.

    Friendly staff, cheap room.

    No credit cards accepted, "blue" exchange rate used for payments in Pesos.

    The location One of the cleanest hostels I have ever seen

    There was't a lot of atmosphere. Normally we would stay here for 6 days, but because it was a bit boring we decided to leave after 1 day.
