Breakfast was good! Location and terrace are very good! Staff is friendly!
No power outlet anywhere near the bed. Small uncomfortable beds, but at the same time they&#39;re fine. Just simple hostel beds.

Mixed thoughts”

Everything is really good here, location, free breakfast, rooms, lockers etc.
However I downgraded on cleanliness, not because the staff down clean because they clean a lot, the beds have bed bugs, need to get new mattresses!

Staff were really sound. Can’t fault them always say hello and spoke to me in Spanish. You come down in the morning and they’re straight over to you asking if you want breakfast. Place was spotless. ...
Can’t fault them. Gracias por todo si vuelvo a Buenos Aires me quedaré allí otra vez.

Great house”

The house is amazing and the rooftop really good for just chill. Is really well located, you can walk from there to any place, and 152 bus will be your best friend when moving further.
It&#39;s a bit noisy because there&#39;s a main street.

Location and price. Also, it is really a beautiful spot inside and so open to visitors.
Breakfast could have variety. And also at night you could turn off air conditioning because it freezes.
