(2) 2696 4241
This spacious and airy hostel features a lot of original detailing and has the crooked hallways to corroborate its age, but is modern in every other way. It has comfortable spaces to sit, both inside and out, a spacious kitchen, adequate bathrooms, a large amount of space in each room, high ceilings, lockers in the rooms, and lockboxes in a public space, in which you can charge your small electronics (phones, mp3, etc). There's free internet and Wifi, organized barbecues and meals, an attached bar (that's not too rowdy) and a travel agency right inside. It's close to the Centropuerto (airport bus) stop, and both the red and green line metros, and has a fully bilingual front desk staff.
