Paralelo Hostel
Reviewed 24 April 2017 via mobile

Booked a few nights here with a friend and we ended up sleeping in our clothes, checking out the next morning first thing and couldn't even shower as it was absolutely appauling.
The bathroom isn't fit for animals. Leaking everywhere from the walls to the floor. Dirty earbuds on the floor.
There was no atmosphere. breakfast not even worth talking about. We ended up skipping it.
Such a shame as it has great potential especially in the location.

Had an amazing experience staying here at the hostel. There was non-stop interesting and intellectual conversations with people from different countries. The one thing reason I believe that people connect easily at the hostel is because they are all interested in learning from one another and are very open-minded. Thanks for the good times and great hospitality!

Getting to Buenos Aires was a big hassle. It wasn't a very good impression and the first hostel was disastrous. I thought the whole trip was going to be chaotic so I changed my flight and decided to stay only for a 5 days... but I wish I didn't. I'm lucky to have stayed during the sunny days because I was able to sun bathe a little in the garden in the morning, it was definitely a great start for better days. The staff definitely helped me feel like I belonged there. Thank you everyone!

Room Tip: Come during the sunny days

I stayed together with two friends in the Paralelo Hostel for three nights! I can only report positive things about this beautiful place. After you passed the purple entrance door a paradise opens up. The interior is decorated in good style and the patio is just stunning. Perfect place to relax after trips to the city center which can be easily reached by the Subte (station is a 10 min walk away). It has a Argentinian style parilla, so you can prepare you're own Asado. The staff is really nice and helpful and keeps the place in a good shape. Everything is very clean! The comunal room is also very spacious. WLAN in available everywhere for free.
Breakfast is served in the "twin hostel" Meridiano which is just three doors away!
I recommend this hostel without any doubts.

We stayed for 5 days, clean, easy access, run by cool and respectful ppl, eager to help. Beautiful indoor and outdoor common areas, good WiFi by southamerican standards, had a real Argentinian "Asado" (bbq) they made on a Friday night and they arranged our tours and nightlife options. Awesome place, great price, would definitely stay again!
