We loved Mystic House. While traveling around Argentina, we have kind of made this our home base, staying 3 different times. The rooms are very nice and a lot bigger then other hostels we have been to. The staff is wonderful. Manuel and Scarlett are super accommodating and friendly. Very attentive. Even the turtle that the hostel keeps (resident for 9 years here) is the most friendly turtle. Rooms were really clean. It was a lot nicer then a lot of the hotels we have stayed at. All the rooms we stayed in had A/C and TVs. Nice kitchen that was more well stocked then other hostels if you want to cook. It is in a great area where you can walk to tons of bars, restaurants and shops. Would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to Buenos Aires.
this hostel disappointed us. the room was not clean and stank of ciggaretts. staff at the reception always changing. its definitely overpriced although location was quite good so was breakfast- lots to choose from, bread croissants coffee tea jam
Overpriced! spots on blankets and pillows nasty plastic matts in the bedroom malfunctioning drain in the shower. It became a lake in the shower. A bit noisy on the lobby floor, but a pair of ear plugs sealed the deal. Very basic breakfast. No bread left in our second morning. They were out of bread since it was sunday and the bakerys closed. The bread was bought the day before and they were out of it. I don't care about that, if it says breakfast included, it better be included! We were goin to check out early the third morning before the breakfast started. We asked If we could have some breakfast to go, since they didn't give us any the day before, but that was not possible since the bread arrives the same day. What? isn't that contradictory? They charge 50 USD for taxi airport. We took a remise for 35 USD! And one other thing. On our mini-around-the-world-trip we posted post cards from India, Laos, Singapore, Uruguay, Bolivia, Peru and Buenos Aires. They all came through except the one from BA. That one the reception was going to send...…
We had the room on the lobby floor. It was very nicely decorated and it wasn't very noisy even it's on the main floor of the house. Breakfast was very simple. People were very helpful and we liked it there. It was a little tricky to find the place as there is no sign at the door.
Good location in quiet neighborhood, 10 minutes from the metro (Palermo) and close to several parks and good restaurants. Renovated room with great bed and new bathroom. We found the bathroom not so clean, but the next day was ok. Basic breakfast with cereal, milk, coffee, bread, jam, but no fruit.
