Ok Clan hostel in Buenos Aires its in the LP and they dont give it much of a rating eaither. The good thing about it is that its cheap, about 9 a night.
Total party place but its real grungy because of it, its a real small 2 floor place and people always congregate and hangout till all hours of the morning around the reception and the TV room, problem is all the dorm rooms circle these 2 main spots so you can hear people drinking and partyin all night. One room (ours
) was right next to the bar which is on a balcony and people would open our windows in the middle of the night to sit on the ledge or shout something into our room. There were no locks on the windows so we couldnet do anything about it, also no locks on any of the doors rooms, bathrooms nothing so there was no sense of security.
Half the staff were real freindly and good and the other half were bums, we asked some of them to help us find a tennis court in B.A. but they were too busy hitting on the people hanging out by reception and smokin to give us a hand, we waited for over an hour before anything got done or any calls were made, then when they finaly did something it was a half ass attempt at calling a tennis place in B.A. and they were like nope not open, we said surely there is another Tennis place in this huge ass city and the guy looked at us, sighed and get this said ¨wow, you guys are makin me work¨ too which we said thats what your getting paid for isnt it!
Also there are signs everywhere that dont mean shit, like no smoking inside please and even the staff are sitting behind the counter huffin darts and people staying there just smoke wherever, other signs say dont hang out in the TV room, Reception or kitchen after 1am and keep quiet and people are in those places all night partying. So staff totaly dont enforce the rules.
plus its really small and they just cram wayyyy too many people in there so you never find any place to yourself there are always people running around cluttering in the few open spaces availible.
I would say if your in B.A. just give out the extra buck or 2 and find something wayyyy better! The only thing this place has going for it is location.
