The staff were friendly, there were activities advertised but I didn't partake in these so dont know if they were good. The location is excellent. The rooms have large lockers to store your bags.
The bunk beds are really squeaky and shakey. Everytime anyone in the dorm rolled over in bed, it was really loud. The ladders to the bunks aren't fixed in place and feel unstable. The kitchen is absolutely horrendous. The gas hob on the cooker barely works and they have very few pots and pans to use. There are only plastic cups and bowls. It just isn't fit for purpose.
Generally it was not the best hotel I ve ever been to BUT it is lived by friendly staff and people. Pretty nice and unique personalities.
The general idea is ok, its little bit overworn. Unfortunatelly heating was missing.
Excellent location in the heart of Buenos Aires, just at few blocks from Plaza de Mayo. The hostel is in a wonderful historic building with a charming liberty architecture. The staff is very kind and helpful: they gave us smart recommendations and helped us in trying to fix the problems we faced with the room.
The room was extremely dirty and humid. There was no heating system, so it was deadly cold and we had to sleep with sweaters and tights! The bed sheets were full of hairs and smelly; the mattress was bad and the pillows were even worst (they smelled of sweat). There was no hot water in the bathroom, so it was impossible to have a shower... moreover, there was no soap, no shower gel and no shampoo.
Very nice and beautiful hostel to stay in Buenos Aires.
With a stay at Portal Del Sur, you'll be centrally located in Buenos Aires, just a 4-minute walk from Florida Street and 6 minutes by foot from Cabildo. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, a computer station, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A roundtrip airport shuttle is available for a surcharge.
