STAY AWAY! Shockingly bad owne....
To anyone considering booking a stay at Meridiano Guesthouses: STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSTEL. I booked a 3-night stay at this hostel through Hostelworld.com, a $31.29 deposit was debited from my bank account the night before we were to arrive, then we show up the next evening after a long day of travel to find out the room had already been booked and there was nothing they could do about that. As if that wasn't bad enough, there was *another* couple there with the exact same problem, and boy were they pissed off too! The desk staff were not taking our problem seriously and were even noticeably entertained by this issue with their booking system, so we demanded to call the owner. The owner, who wasn't there, blamed the booking system, saying it was Hostelworld's fault and not theirs, but said he'd be there the next day to give us back our money if we came back to see him. We came back the next day and this guy was NOT there when he said he was going to be, and was unreachable when we tried to call again. I emailed Hostelworld after this whole ordeal, they apologized but stated it was an administrative problem on account of Meridiano Guesthouses - the money and booking was there with the hostel and just needed to be verified on their end to issue a refund - and I believe them. Hostelworld couldn't get ahold of MG after several attempts to contact them. The absolutely maddening thing is that it's been over 3 weeks since that booking and I STILL haven't gotten my money back! WTF?!! Read the other reviews about this place with guests having the SAME problem! :(( I wish I had read them before. (I also wish I could give this place negative stars but Google Reviews makes you choose a star rating to be able to post)...STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!

Not a good place - avoid!
I would not recommend staying here at all. The house looks nice in the photos but it is shabby and run down. It is in need of some maintenance, updating and a deep clean. There were cockroaches in the kitchen. I didn’t have a good customer service experience either - the girl who checked me in treated me as an annoying inconvenience and returned to making out with her boyfriend on the sofa in the common area as soon as she thought I was out of sight.
There are much much better hostels all over Palermo. Where the owners and staff actually care about your stay and make a big effort to make you comfortable. Do not stay here!

Too much fun in so little time....
So glad I arrived to this hostel! I definitely didn't have enough time to chill but I'll definitely come back. Buenos Aires, in general, is full of culture and great for anyone who loves to walk. For me, after lots of tourism, coming back to a house full of friendly people was awesome! :)

Probably the best Buenos-Aires....
It's a paradise for kinda hippie travellers/backpackers. There is such a good feeling, you meet many great people, share a meal or a drink, have a good time every night. Buena onda ! Awesome place to stay, even for a while (it's been my home for ten weeks!). I definitly recommend it, for what you will live there.

Not worth it's price
3 friends and i stayed in this hostel for about 5 days, we filled a room that is in the upper floor, that could only be accessed through a narrow spiral staircase. The first alarm went off in my head when the staff told us the door didn't close properly unless the door was locked, that didn't become a problem later on only because there was noone else in the room that wasn't in the group. We opened up the minuscule improvised locker for the luggage, and found an empty beer bottle. There are 2 windows in the room: one that has a bunkbed directly in front of, thus preventing it's opening, and the other is one of those bathroom glass windows that you have to put an angle to open, and when the sun comes up, you either block that window with something or the sun will greet you at sunrise, whether you like that or not. We are positively certain we got the worst bedroom, cause to get to the bathroom you need to cross a courtyard that is in the open (and argentina is cold). At our second night there, when we were leaving, person A of the hostel staff tells us we have to pay now, cause she was going to bed, and that was a real problem for us, because not all of us had much money cause we had arrived recently, and we had to spend all of our money just to satisfy their wish. Then, at the second time i went to take a shower there was no hot water. I stayed there for 5 days, during that time i took 1 hot shower, 3 cold ones, and had to skip another one cause i got sick. The bathrooms have no drain either, so bring your flipflops and expect pools of water after every shower, and one of the bathrooms doesen't even have a lock. There was, technically, a third bathroom, but we can't really call it that, cause the door didn't close and there was no sink. There was a night we stayed at the hostel, and the hostel sells beers, then my friend decided to ask some dude how much was the beer, he said "70 argentinian pesos" and my friend bought it. Later the same night he asked again, to the same person, and he said it was 50 pesos, so right off the bat this friend of mine knew he got scammed the first time. The next day i saw someone asleep (broad daylight) in the couch of the reception room, turns out it was the same person that scammed my friend, and he was part of the hostel staff!. There was a day that the lightbulb in our bedroom burned, so we went to talk to the staff, we got in touch with person A again. She told us (in practically these exact words): "oh i don't know what to do squints at the broken lamp oh you have to unscrew some screws??? i'm alone here, is it urgent? i'm all alone in here". I told her i could get it fixed for her if she gave me a lamp to replace it, so she went downstairs to get it, and she didn't even bother to get a chair to get the other lamp, she asked another guest to remove the lamp for her. After every one of those events i remembered their sign on the entrance, "8,9 on tripadvisor". that is dishonest, our experience was FAR from that. Upon the last day i even saw cobwebs on the wall (if you're at the hostel, the wall that has a fireplace on the reception room, with a drawing of a cat drawn by hand, on a white wall). This was more expensive than it should have been, for the quality of service/accomodations. my recomendation is to find another hostel.
