          The staff at Circus Hostel were very welcoming and helpful. They made sure to get to know each traveller and offer advice on sightseeing in Buenos Aires. The location is great for exploring 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
