“As a budget accommodation, private rooms were OK”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

We used one of the private rooms with bath here. The rooms were small and somewhat rundown -- you can see more detail about that on my travel blog, http://paulalanlevy.blogspot.com/2012/04/dramatic-drive-from-salta-to-cafayate.html -- and I found it a bit odd for a hostel that the VERY skimpy breakfast starts so late. (Details on that are here: http://paulalanlevy.blogspot.com/2012/04/dramatic-drive-from-salta-to-cafayate.html). But the housing was just about right considering the very low price we paid in a town that is increasingly expensive as a place to stay. The staff were friendly and accommodating -- with particular high marks for the afternoon/night person whose English works well. The day staff do not speak English and do not seem to want to make any accommodation for that, but of course that was my own limitation, traveling in a Spanish-speaking country despite a minimal ability in that language. But, travelers should be forewarned.

Room Tip: When we were there, there were two rooms with a double bed and only one had a ceiling light in worki...

Although this hostel was very quiet while I was there, it was just fine! It had good showers, nice staff, breakfast, and clean. They will organize tours for you and help you out if you need it. Would stay there again if I go back. There is so much to do early in the mornings around Salta that it is nice to get a good nights sleep and you can there!

We arrived at the hostel without a booking and decided to splash out and stay in one of the twin rooms with an en-suite. We were really surprised by how nice the room it was, it almost felt like a boutique hotel! The room was decorated beautifully and was really clean. The beds were very comfortable and it felt like all the pillows and sheets were brand new which was a novelty for us! The en-suite was great as it had a nice big shower which always had hot water. Our room was located at the back of the hostel so it was very quiet and peaceful for sleeping. The courtyard seating area and the kitchen were both well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed cooking our dinners and eating there. Breakfast was included in our room rate which was great and really set you up for the day as it was a small buffet of different breads. The staff here were so friendly too, especially the guy who works here - his English is amazing and he was able to recommend different things for us to do during our stay. The only disappointing thing about the hostel was the condition of the bikes - we had planned on doing the 50km cycle but the tyres were flat and only one of the brakes worked on my bike and so, we were unable to do the cycle which was a shame. Unless the bikes have been fixed, I would definitely recommend looking elsewhere to hire them!
