After too long an absence, it was nice to return to an Argentine breakfast with dulce de leche. The Puerto Limon lies in a quiet part of San Telmo, with friendly and efficient staff. Generally the place is clean and comfortable, and one of the few places on Hosteworld where the solo traveller can get a single, not a double,...

Hostel is in San Telmo. It is near the port to Colonia. It is a bit of a walk to the main places like Teatro Colon but there is subway station near the hostel. It is a good base to explore Buenos Aires. The breakfast is okay, it needs fruit and more variety in the food. Hostel needs to be...

My partner and I stayed at the hostel in a private room for 6 nights. We found the hostel to be in a great location. Close to bus stations etc and plenty of restaurants etc around the area. We had a private room with ensuite which was very nice and clean. Kitchen had everything you needed. My only bad things...

The outside courtyard is closed from midnight onwards. THE COMMON AREA INSIDE THE HOSTEL is also CLOSED at MIDNIGHT. This means everyone is essentially SENT TO BED at MIDNIGHT - this very strange hostel curfew is something I have never experienced in my year of world travels and since I was a 3-year-old living under my parents' rules. The night...

Getting to BA on a bus is exhausting, this hostal is filled with chill people and super friendly staff. The night i arrived they were having an asado and invited us all to join it was awesome. Staff has a bunch of suggestions of where to go, great location close to the bus station and surrounded with cool street art.

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
