I was keen to try somewhere a bit different when arriving to BA and this delivered just what I was looking for. The staff are lovely - all English speaking, knowledgeable and helpful, and attentive but not in your face, ie will leave you to your own devices but if you need help will do what they can. The hostel...

I gave it 50% because I had great fun with the hostel room-mates while I was there. Beds are comfortable, the price is reasonable for the basic facilities you get. The hostel will not get my other 50% because of the reception staff. Other than the staff on night shift (who took the trouble to help me with my airline...

This was the first place we stayed in South America and it was absolutely the best choice for us. Amazing value private rooms (absolutely huge with good sized bed, storage, tv and air con). Big plus is the amazing decor of the interior. Staff are very helpful - especially as we couldn´t speak a word of Spanish at this point...

The hostel is in a lovely part of San Telmo, only a short walk from the plaza and a 10 minute walk to the city centre. Unfortunately around New Years Eve a lot of things were closed, but when they started to open up it was much more lively. The decor inside is vibrant, but the rooms are pretty basic....

Clean, comfortable rooms. Very friendly, helpful staff. Quiet guests. Very secure building. Negative: As a single woman, I was not comfortable walking to the hostel after nightfall. Streets around the hostel were quite deserted and dark.

It is a decent hostel for a low cost travel. It is best suited for youngsters below 23yrs of age.

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.
