"MAR DEL PLATA" Hostel Casa Grande Tip by swesn

Hostel Casa Grande, Mar del Plata: 80 reviews and 0 photos

Pros :
- Friendly staff
- Moderate-sized kitchen with an 'island' in the centre with lots of burners and stoves so you do not need to wait around for a free stove to cook your pot of spaghetti. Having to face everyone else while doing your cooking, it is a great place to show off your cooking skills (or steal something from someone's pan while he is not looking).
- Large, interactive dining area
- Some cultural activities organised

Cons :
- A little bit far from the centre, about 10 blocks to walk but there are shops and cafes along the way, so the walk is never dull
- Dorms felt a tad small, but it was generally comfortable

Dorms : 16 Arg Pesos (2005)

Address: Jujuy 947
Price Comparison: least expensive
Phone: +54 223 476-0805
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hostel
