Reviewed 6 August 2014

one of the worst hostel I've ever seen, indecent for a city like BA. not even in remote regions in developing countries I've seen such low level of care. dirty, old, smelly.
I booked a private room. they lead me there through an absolutely dark corridor, cause the light was not working. I realized right away they have not changed the bedsheets, quite clear somebody else has slept in there, so I complained and I got moved to another room. same story there but it was late and I was tired of the trip and of complaining so I said ok, it's just tonight. when I went for the toilet, surprise surprise, there was no water "at the moment" they told me. but it does not really matter, since I looked into the toilet and thought I'll skip the shower today. I've been in all sort of places, and really can adapt to simple and uncomfortable places, but this beats them all. and not for free.
just stay away from this place!!!

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
