    First to Review

    This hostel was slick and lots of fun. Just walking through the many corridors, plastered with street art along the walls, was enough to lift my spirits. The bar area had a full-size pool table and was prepped for injections of live musical talent throughout the week. I loved the graffiti in this part of the hostel. They were lots of images, superimposed on top of each other. The artistic influences were what made this hostel special. The staff were really chirpy and they were happy to feed me with lots of information. They told me that artists come in all the time with propositions for painting new images and that, in general, walls get changed about every three months. The team was really well organised, the rooms were clean and the events organised throughout the week were written on the noticeboard keeping everyone informed. I felt really welcome.

    If you're an artist, you'll love this place AND its art. The rooms are decorated in really awesome graffiti, which is all over the entire hostel. There's a 1-1 book exchange (you leave one book, and you can take one), a few computers you can use for e-mails or internet, breakfast, and a bar. The terrace is also great and has hammocks you can use if you want. The staff is awesome and they plan a lot of activities so you'll never be bored! I'd definitely stay there again, and I love San Telmo, the neighborhood this hostel is located in.
