Nice place to stay. Staff are fun and very helpful, always had answer to my questions. Sweet breakfast with coffee and juice. The kitchen was small but it was always available to cook dinner at night. This place was comfortable and relaxing. I'd recommend it.

The best about the hostel is the location in the neighborhood San Telmo, which has a lot of good restaurants, bars and the metro is close by the hostel. The communal area is in the basement unfortunatly, so it's a little dark and unconfortable. The public toilets are heere too, so it sometimes has a bad smell. Also the kitchen...

Really nice hostel, small but comfortable rooms. It has really nice common areas but the wifi can be poor in other areas. Walking distance to boca stadium and the city. Breakfast was really good with a range of cereals, cold milk, bread with a toaster, tea, coffee, cake and juice.

This hostel is more like a hotel. We loved it here and stayed twice during 2 separate trips in BA. For more reviews and tips goto www.takemeshowmetellme.com The hostel is huge, and located right in San Telmo. The staff are friendly and available. The atmosphere of the hostel was great for us- not crazy but also not sleepy. We had...

No complaints about the functioning and condition of this hostel! It's spotless, polished, spacious, and good looking in a cutting-edge trendy interior design type of way, but thereb a little too clinical for what I ended up craving in St Telmo - which was the small, rickety and artsy hostels in old mansions spotted elsewhere in the hood. If do...

We loved staying at America del Sur, we chose to have a double room and although it is technically a hostel it felt more like a hotel. The staff are super friendly, really helpful and love to help you get the best out of Buenos Aires. Their knowledge of local restaurants and activities is brilliant and they can match any...

America del Sur is a fantastic hostel. The staff are helpful and kind, the rooms are large and well-equipped, and the clientele is interesting and varied. The location is excellent in the vibrant neighborhood of San Telmo. If you are looking for affordable lodging in BA, look no further.

America Del Sur was my first experience of hostel life in Buenos Aires, and this hostel was a great place to start. Private room was clean and had added bonus of safe and hairdryer. It's in a great location (make sure to check out the bar opposite with the red door!) and staff were really friendly and helpful. Had a...

Very pleasant hostel with fantastic staff and plenty on offer. Free tours of some parts of the city. Very well located in Buenos Aires. The double rooms give onto a relatively noisy street but they are OK at night. Easy access by public transport. Good breakfast included. Good value for money

San Telmo is a nice area to stay in, with affordable little eateries (they might look like cheap pizza places from the outside, but a lot of them have good wine and steak for ridiculously low prices) and more of a neighborhood-vibe. And of course there's the big market on Sundays. The hostel's reception staff was super nice and very...

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.
