The Nightmare on Recoleta!!
The place was not very clean and while my stay, they never clean the shower rooms. Also, the desk clerk was rude.

6/10 Good

Lugar centrico, mejorable pero funcional.
Es un hostal muy bien ubicado, perfecta locación, te puedes ir caminando a todos lados. El lugar es viejo y la manutención del local no es la mejor de todas, sin embargo el precio que se paga se puede esperar algo así. Si nada mas tenés que dormir y guardar tus cosas no tiene tanto inconveniente. Sin embargo, se podrían mantener un poco mejor la limpieza de los baños y sobretodo una fumigada para que no ataquen los moscos. La atención en la recepción es buena y amable.
