Lounge area was large, comfortable and nice. The breakfast was bread, eggs that could be cooked, margarine and jam. The rooms were compact and warm. I was probably unlucky with the showers, as they were frequently cold.
This hostel, which has the potential to be outstanding, is run in favour of the long-term 'visitors'. They're allowed to assume that they own the dormitory that they stay in. Thus, they try to bully and dictate the use of the dormitory to short-term 'guests'. This included being told that it was wrong to use the dormitory to sleep in. I was informed that sleeping in the dormitory is a hindrance to long-term 'visitors' who want to make phones calls, use their laptops and have social gatherings in the dormitory. Thus, I understand why other hostels regularly move long-term 'visitors/travellers', in order for them not to assume ownership of the dormitory.
The cleanliness score is based on the dirt that had built up inside the shower floor area. The area where people generally stand in the shower had cream-coloured tiles and the surrounding area was black. Also, blood was on the back of the door. In one area, it was clotted and clinging to the door frame. In another area, it was a smiley face (how cheerful). As well as, what appeared to be extracts from peoples noses on the wall. The small, windowless toilet rooms were used as smoking rooms. This was observed for the duration of my stay.
The location score is based on the dodgy people who hung around on the street, especially the people who had a make-shift house, made out of discarded sofas, on the street corner by the hostel front door. I believe this hostel could be so much better.

sotrav1: Lamento que te hayan tocado malos companieros de habitacion. Tal vez un error nuestro por haberte puesto con gente que estaba alli por un periodo mas prolongado. Respecto a la limpieza de las habitaciones, me llama la atencion. No hemos tenido comentarios de este tipo antes.
Finalmente, con respecto a la gente que duerme en la calle, no es nuestra responsabilidad, y lamentablemente es un problema comun de muchas grades ciudades.
saludos

I found Sabatico very friendly and welcoming - they didn't mind my arriving at a very, very strange hour in the morning, the breakfast was simple but filling, the staff provided me with all the information I needed, including buses and hospital location.
I appreciated the level of security the offered and the fact that the staff recognized me after a few days.
The bathrooms were fairly clean.
And, above all, comfortable beds - this is what really counts for me!
All in all - value for money!

The staff are great -and encourage you to take part in things. Loved the rooftop terrace with hammocks. The Thursday night barbecue is a great way to meet everybody. The hostel is not too big -so it´s easy to make friends with other travellers. The location is about a 30 min walk from the microcenter but 10/15 mins to San Telmo. There are buses that cross the city and can take you from the hostel to anywhere in the city. Breakfast was excellent and included freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs, cereals, croissants, bread, ham and cheese .. a great start to the day!

Actually me and my girlfriend stayed at Sabatico last Year in January. I write the review now because I had a look at the pictures and promised Sebastian to write a review, but never done it. I really feel like he deserves a great review, because he made our stay as nice as possible. We actually came back at the end of our trip! Thank you so much again Sebastian, the Asado was amazing and La Bomba I will never forget. Sorry that it took so long for a review! Again, best Hostel I stayed at in South America!

sabatico is a very relaxed hostel. you can meet interesting people there or just sit in the "living room" and listen to the music.
the rooms are o.k. but could be a bit cleaner sometimes.
some receptionists were friendly. others were a bit confused...
kitchen is small but clean.
all together we really liked it there and every evening it felt like coming home.
