Argentango Hostel
Reviewed 31 July 2008

As I arrived, the price seemed fair, but that's when the surprises started to show up: deceptive advertising, prices are raised arbitrarily, rooms are packed, the kitchen is poorly implemented. A piano room is advertised, but truth is, there's a piano in the living room, locked down so no one can play it. Argentinian breakfast is advertised as well, plus coffe & mate at any time, wich is another false statement and/or a dubiosuly interpretable one. Public phone & fax, another phallacy.
No towels are included either, as there's no dvd nor vcr, as advertised. Safety box? No one ever saw it. Free Internet & Wi-Fi are deceptively advertised, as there's no Wi-Fi router, and the only available computer is not working. The Optionals are non-existent.

Attractive, yet deceptive name; relates the hostel to Tango, San Telmo and the essence of Buenos Aires.
Not recommendable. Deserves to be closed down.
