Good common area & v nice & helpful staff. However, the living quarters & bathroom leave a lot to be desired. The breakfast is meagre compared to many hostels' lavish offering. It is also a long walk or metro ride from the centre. Recommend it simply due to the price.

this place is truly for backpackers, it is affordable, the people and the atmosphere is amazing. To begin with, it was kinda hard to see from the outside, but when you know where it was it wasn't that hard to find at all, keep in mind to look for a tiny sign on the wall to your right. The first...

When I write a review, I always try to find something positive to say. Usually, there's some redeeming feature or other that at least adds a positive gloss to a dull picture However, since my brief stay at the Garden House Hostel in September of last year, despite giving it plenty of thought, I have struggled to find any mitigation...

Firstly I have to say the staff here were wonderful, helpful and so friendly, unfortunately that is the only good thing I can say about this hostel. We stayed for two nights and everything that could have gone wrong, did. The bathrooms were dirty, cramped and in need of serious repairs. We booked a double room and unbeknownst to us...

The Garden House was our Oasis in Buenos Aires! We enjoyed the time in this hostel during New Years Eve. The staff is very friendly and was patient with answering our questions. They searched for us the right bus connection to the airport (instead of paying an expensive taxi transfer). In the night it was quiet, although the hostel is...

It's been the first hostel on my 5-month-trip across South-America. It's more a small and quiet spot, than a party-hostel, so It's been the perfect choice for arriving in SA and a few days discovering the city. The hostel and it's staff are spreading a warm family feeling and you definitely get the feeling, they care about you. On their...

Had a fabulous stay in the Garden House, and even went back a second time. The location is great for San Telmo and very close to a subte stop. The staff was awesome, they made things very easy for us and were fun to be around. The wifi was good in the common area, dorms were comfortable with small lockers,...
