Local from Buenos Aires, Argentina

Pretty much the only thing I found appealing about this hostel was the price. Though the guests seemed nice I felt the place looked a bit dirty almost everywhere you went. There's a breakfast that consist of mostly toasts, juices, coffee and tea, and wifi. The receptionist was ok but definitely seemed annoyed whenever I or others had a question. It's very affordable but like the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Lime House is by many metro lines and right in front of Avenida 9 de Julio, so that's a plus, but if you can afford a bit more then there are better places.

I walked into Lime House’s lobby expecting to speak Spanish (we are, after all, in Buenos Aires), and so was a bit surprised when the receptionist looked at me blankly after I’d spoken. Turns out he didn’t speak a word of Spanish, nor did the vast majority of the hostel dwellers. Besides the Fernet offered on the bar’s menu, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a hint of Argentina in this hostel. Everything is written in English, and the whole hostel’s only distinguishing factor is its lime color. The owner advised me not to leave my cell phone in the available rooms, which don’t contain safes, which wasn’t particularly reassuring. He also seemed quite bored with his own tour of the place, which didn’t inspire much confidence. Apart from its nice location near the Obelisco, this hostel does not have much to offer.

The place was horrible! Really greasy and grimy! I found a pair of discarded boxer shorts just hanging on a bush on the roof terrace and everyone staying at the hostel looked pretty ill. The receptionist guy was sweet and helpful, but his comment that “we’re not as good as The Millhouse” didn’t inspire much confidence. There were washing machines to use by inserting a few Argentine coins and there was a huge table in the communal area to eat around, but apart from that, this hostel didn’t have anything going for it.

I recommend the Lime House Youth Hostel. Since it is a hostel, the prices are very affordable. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there is a kitchen if you like to keep groceries on-hand. The location is amazing, right in central B.A. and in walking distance from pretty much everything. We felt very safe and welcome staying in this hostel, even when we were coming back to our room late at night.
