Friendly reception staff, great breakfast, reception is open all the time. Room very basic, I missed a fridge in the room. And didn't like the check-in (15h), check-out (10h) time. Internet WiFi was a little spotty. Despite this, is a nice place!

Friendly reception staff, great breakfast, reception is open all the time if you have questions. 4 out of 5 just because the room wasn't really clean such as soap bits in the shower soap tray, some hair shavings around the taps on the sink and a peanut sized spot of blood on the duvet cover - none of which was...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms very basic but sufficient and everything was very clean. Rooms are configured in a variety of ways from single, double, dormitory style, etc. Internet WiFi was a little spotty. For a budget friendly traveler, this would be a good place to check out.

Great location, near many milongas (which are great) and in the most charming neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, San Telmo. Also very close to the San Telmo antique's fair. If you are fond of walking you can get to Casa Rosada really quickly. Very close to metro lines as well. The rooms are very neat and are cleaned everyday. The bathrooms... More

We spent 2 nights on the hostels, and everything was gret. Our room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the toilet har the right size (not the typical small size I've found in other hostels). The breakfast was very nice too, including fresh fruits, medias-lunas (argentinian croissants), brioches , bread, and of course, dulce de leche. Location... More

We book here 5 nights. What a terrible decision. The corridor was very loud, with tin walls and bad beds. The bathroom was very small and not very clean from my point if view.No Tv to mitigate the noise. If you want to rest and relax in BA, this is not your choice.

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.

“The apartment we were put in did not come with breakfast, which is ok because there are kitchen utensils but you should ask how to get to the nearest supermarket. If you want help close by then make sure to check your room is in the main hostel building.”
