6/10 Good

Good value
The neighborhood was excellent, with plenty restaurants, grocery stores, and public transportation nearby. The desk attendant was also very helpful, especially because he spoke English and had some advice on the area. Our room was pretty basic with a shared patio with the next door guests. The bed did have several stains on the sheets and pillows which made us feel uncomfortable- even more so when we saw a couple cockroaches crawling around. The bathroom was OK- the toilet took awhile for the tank to fill back up with water, so sometimes we had to let the yellow mellow in order for us both to go. The shower was finicky and I had to play with the handles to get the perfect temperature.

a little place to crash for a day
we needed one night stay over after coming off the cruise. The hostel is small but relatively closely located to the city center with convenient public transportation

A relação custo-benefício é interessante porém tinha gente fazendo festa na área comum que restou em bagunça pela manhã de roupas e garrafas espalhadas o café foi servido com 45 minutos de atraso porque o pessoal que trabalha no hotel provavelmente envolvido na noite anterior provavelmente estava de ressaca...

Tres sympa
Très sympa comme endroit qui est aussi un endroit où logent des argentinos qui travaillent dans le coin. Ceci permet en discutant avec eux de savoir qu'elle est leur vie à Buenos Aires
