Good 6.0
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.
