Stayed for four nights, staff and owner frederico were super nice and helpful. The area is great and everything walkable, metro is in 5-7 min distance. Why not 5 stars in ranking - a nit worn down, some paint would help. And an improvement of the heartless breakfast of this otherwise so heartful and cheery place would make the fifth... More

We stayed here 2 nights. It's an ok option. Large rooms, kitchen area, tourist info etc but it really needs a face lift and a serious clean. Otherwise, the staff were very friendly and helpful. It costs the same as other more modern hostels with better facilities so I think they should reduce their prices.

I spent 5 nights in the Hostel which is very conveniently located in San Telmo & relatively close to everything, especially to the Metro & lots of buses within a couple of blocks.

Pros: location is perfect. Between San Telmo and easy reach to metro, bus and city center. All of the staff was amazing, helpful and friendly. The design of the hotel is cool, with kitchen, bar and computer area. The drinks at the bar are real cheap. Lockers in the room and also at reception once you are checked out. 24h... More

The location is good and especially if you will be in Buenos Aries on a weekend when the San Telmo Market is so close by. The staff were all knowledgeable and helpful. The cleanliness of most common areas was good, and there was always helpful information posted in the lobby about what was going on in the area. I was... More

Clean, social, perfectly fine hostel for backpackers. The young and friendly staff can tell you anything you need to know. The location is fantastic at only six blocks walking distance from Plaza de Mayo. We stayed in a pretty basic double room without a window (windows are available in the slightly more expensive rooms). Though the room was a bit... More

This is one of the more expensive options on the Hostelworld network, especially for a solo traveller, but I think the cost is justified. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the girl who checked me in showed me a beautiful room, almost a suite, near the top of the building. The view of the streets below was dizzying... More

After spending a week in Palermo we decided to spend a few nights in San Telmo. Ostinatto hostel itself is a nice building but could do with some renovations / touch ups and it is not the cleanest hostel we have stayed in. There are a lot of live-ins and the average age of the guest was later 30's/early 40's.... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique minimal hostel located in the historic neighborhood of San Telmo. Ostinatto is anything but old, but a recycled XX century building that combines an old structure with a fine minimalistic design. All of our rooms are clean and functional with plenty of locker space and new beds. All in all, Ostinatto offers something for everyone; close enough to be near all the action yet far enough to relax away from the bustle of downtown. ... more   less
