We arrived with a friend, and we have been received correctly! The dorm were we stayed was big and with only one fan, not a lot of showers and toilets, not the best but I review it correctly because people were nice and also organizes in my opinion the bests tours. You gonna be able to visit la Quebrada with nice guide, trekking with a really tiny group 3/5 pers in amazing places without anybody arround. If you want to avoid hotspots and see nature, go for it !!!!!

Got at the hostel on a Friday mid day. Got a single room and late the same day I informed them that I would need the room for two nights ( including Saturday night ) as the hostel was half empty in on a Friday I a managed to get a discount of 100 pesos and the room was confirmed for two nights. However the day after I was told that I had to move to a dorm which of course I did not agree. By 20.00 when I can back from a day in the valleys , I discovered that all my stuff was shaveled in a locker and that I had to leave the hostel as someone else was in my room. Probably was because they were paying more. The owners have been very aggressive and very unfriendly. I generally do NOT make such recommendation but would say stay away as there are many other alternatives with better deals , parking and friendly staff. Have been traveling in South America for the last 6 months and this was the worst experience ever. Also Internet has been not working while there.

This Hostel is situated near the main Plaza,parking is available in the street and it is well marked. Our room was clean,with a private bathroom,towels supplied. However,they could find no soap anywhere. I would rather recommend this Hostel for Backpacers and young solo travellers. Breakfast was standard Argentina-stile. The overall feeling was that of relaxing,go with the flow,but nothing outstanding.

Just a half a block from the square and three or four from both bus terminals. Inner courtyard is pleasant but doesn't get a ton of sun. Kitchen is small but functional if you're the only one cooking. Wifi is good. Staff are pleasant and it's all very clean.
