Afforsable and nice friendly v....
It's cheap and staff are friendly. But expect what u pay for price. Hostels in Buenos Aires are generally expensive. For the price u pay for... this place is great!!! Nice friendly vibe. Comes with a shared kitchen and within walking distance to the center of San telmo!

Avoid at all costs
My wife and I have been on the road for over 3 months with 3 kids. We regularly book in hostels and are not picky on lodgings. But we left Hostel Sol after one night. It is not a place you want to go to, unless your only criteria is low costs. The place looks nice on pictures but don't be fooled. Let me enumerate. It is dirty. People party until 2 in the morning, talking loudly and singing in the central courtyard which makes it impossible to sleep. Guests smoke in all the no-smoking areas. They advertise a common kitchen but there is virtually no ustensils or cookingware. The microwave is probably radioactive. People steal food regularly in the fridge, as one staff told me. We had a private bathroom which looked like one you'd find in a prison cell. Wifi and internet connection are down most of the time. The keys on the keyboards are hit and miss, and there is no mouse on one computer. It feels like the whole place is falling apart, and what's the staff doing? Updating their Facebook profile. Need I say more?

Horrible place and service
I am not picky but I have to say:the place is falling apart. In the period I stayed in, a door literally felt in a person! I reserved a room with bathroom and in the last day the toilet buttom felt in the floor. When the man that work in the hostel saw that, he spoke in a very aggressive way with me, like it was my fault! The hot water also was not functioning very well. There were holes in the roof and because of that, when it rained, there were leaks.The sheets and mattress were disgusting. The wifi signal were very weak or, most of the time, nonexistent.The breakfast was a joke and when you asked for more food (when the table were empty) the people who work there were very unpolite. When the guests were out and came late, took it at least 15 minutes to someone show up to open the door. So we would have to wait in the middle of the street, late in the night, at risk of been robbed or worst! The price of the room was low, but for the place and service it was very expensive.
If it was just structural problems I think I wouldn't hate it so much. But the staff was VERY RUDE. All the time I felt like they were doing a favor for me and they made perfectly clear that they did not care if you were having a nice time (or a bearable time!). If you say "Buenos días" to them, don't wait for an answer!

Prison but YOU pay for it!
I've been travelling for 7 months now and this probably ranks as one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. The only way I could describe it, would be to compare it to a prison.
The bedroom has plain white bed sheets and a sponge pillow (you think I'm joking, check the photo). The walls are black with mould and just really horrid.
The nights were so cold and our thin white sheet wasn't keeping us warm at all, so we grabbed our sleeping bag from our luggage.
At this point, I wasn't bothered as we were only here for 1 day, so I thought I'd let it slide.
Then came the shower, inmates are expected to shower in tiny cubicles that are unbelievably dirty and showers that are super grimy. Pretty awful, again, we had only one night booked here, not too fussed and at least the hot water was relatively well behaved. (you had to adjust the temperature regularly).
Prisoners had to make their way to the breakfast room for 8am to 10am for a selection of water and bread pieces (you are also spoilt with warm milk, coffee and butter). Truly the worst breakfast I've ever had. By this point, I thought, this is a bit of a joke for £20.
If you wanted to leave the 'Hostel', you had to ask permission from the gate keeper to let you out and you would have to pray there was someone there to let you back in if you were gone for a while (this happened to quite a few people).
On being released from prison, we were constantly badgered by the staff on when we were actually going to leave, even going as far as having to give them a time of when we had to vacate by (it was literally mid day when we were asked).
I honestly feel I would have enjoyed a night in prison much more than this and I would have saved a bomb.
The price is cheaper than some, but I've paid £20 for luxury hostels in many parts of Argentina. There's really no excuse for this.
I would recommend searching for a good Airbnb for the exact same price (as we have done with absolutely no regrets).

Mixed review of Hostel Sol!
I did have an interesting experience here... the power outed one evening, and I did get a little hassle from one or two of the people 'living' there (I think rental prices are extortionately high in BA). And horrific wifi. So a mixed bag really. Daniel, the owner, was definitely kind and helpful though, he made sure I had enough baked goods to eat before he called a cab for my super early boat to Montevideo, which I truly appreciated. They have tango classes in the evening though! Definitely a community atmosphere here though, with a decent sized kitchen and everyone cooking for each other and eating together, which is nice :)
