Terrible. Dirty rooms and bed sheets, dirty bathrooms too. Lots of drug use here, staff and guests. The place should come with a health warning. If you´re going to stay in Palermo, pay extra for somewhere better.

Horrible place. Never have seen such a disgusting place. Staff was not at all friendly, nor helpfull. Everything was dirty and you can't sleep at all due to the noise at night. It may be cheap but it isn't worth a penny. It is unbelievable that loney planet recommend this.

I was surprised to see the lost of poor comments about this place. As I read through them I suppose I understand some of the points, but not enough to warrant such a poor review. The security doors do work, you just need to speak to the desk. The bathrooms are old, but are cleaned throughout the day and the...

This place was horrible. The bathrooms had things growing in there. The service was non existent. The kitchen has layers of mold in the fridge. DO NOT STAY HERE. The website is lying.

Stayed here last week. Staff were lazy, unhelpful, didn´t care. We were in a 4 bed dorm. The shelves and corner of the room had piles of misc clothes and bags which belonged to 2 of the staff who would come in and out to get stuff throughout the night... This left very limited space for the 4 paying travellers...

Grotty!! The mattresses were grey with dirt, the place smelt of cigarettes and just felt uncomfortable. We got stuck between the 2 security doors with no way of getting in or out - pretty scary! Lots and lots of stairs - don't take your suitcase! On the good side - the guy on staff was really friendly and helpful, and...

The Web site is a big LIE. It is absolutely WASTING your money to stay here. The toilet has been clogged over night. The staffs did not clean. They do not care their guest. Very loud, very lazy and very very dirty. The rooms in the web are not as they are. They just put beds in the living room...

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
