You can get just about anywhere easily from here. Lots of restaurants, bars, and markets nearby. The property itself has a secure entry system so not just anyone can walk in off the street. The common areas were nice and just as described on their website. The rooms were fine- simple sleeping rooms with clean white linens on the beds...

Clean rooms and common areas. Friendly staff at the reception and at breakfast. Free internet on computers in the common room. Large tv screen. Standard breakfast of pastries, fruit, tea and coffee. Swimming pool...but too small to do lengths!

We had a great stay at Circus Hostel. A clean and well located place. There was a great atmosphere. The room was clean and well equiped. The breakfast great. We would recommend it for your stay in Buenos Aires.

At the heart of barrio San Telmo, this hostel & hotel is simply the best. I´d been there hosting and working. Difficult not to recommend. Definitly I´ll go again!!! Good little restaurants at the zone, perfect to visit Buenos Aires.

Except for one of the receptionists that wasn't really nice. I talked with 3 receptionists, the argentinian one was really helpful and was always really helpful, the blonde one (I'm sorry for not knowing his name) wasn't.

Very nice budget hotel, well located, close to the subway (called "Subte"). Friendly and young staff (it's also a hostel), good breakfast (don't miss the " medialunas"). Argentinean power outlets are different, but the staff sell adapters for a little over a dollar (Luke $1.25) for your devices.

This place is defiantly a hotel rather than a hostel, I suppose your experience might be slightly different in a shared room a but the private rooms are just like hotels. The hotel is well located in San Telmo, we were there at the weekend so busted the Sunday market which was literally 5 mins up the road. The staff...

My family (1 yo and 7yo) stayed and loved Circus. The staff were extremely helpful, the hotel is nicely laid out and located. The breakfast is great, and the staff even heated up the pool for my daughter (despite it being winter...) We will be back!

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.
