Never anymore!”

Dirty, noisy in the night, cold but the worst part of it is the shower: no pressure of water for all the 3 nights i stayed there. A very bad experience

Good for one night stay”

Confortable bed, good wifi, great location

It was good for one night. Location is great but don't book this considering breakfast is included because is terrible! Coffee, tea and small bread qualifies for "free coffee" more than "breakfast included" for me. Bathroom was not very clean...

Basic hostal but great value for money”

Great value for money, friendly staff

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring the beautiful city of Salta. The owners, Niv and Carola (and Doron the dog) were very welcoming. The rooms are very basic (no tv, shared bathrooms) but are fine for the amount they cost. Definitely recommend staying here.

숙소가 오래되었어요 시설이 많이 낡고 노후되었습니다 뜨거운 물 잘 나오고 주방도 잘 되어있어요 메인광장까지 걸어서 10-15분 걸리고 터미널까진 걸어서 15-20분 걸려요
