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...

There are things that could be improve. No TVs in the private room. The breakfast is regular. The staff was nice. Sadly the rooms hadn´t the plug adapter for the electric energy so be alert in order to buy one on the way. The hotel is nicely ubicated and you can go walking to a lot of turistic places from...

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!

It could be better if the rooms have a TV. There are good people in charge and the prizes are good for the zone and quality of the service. The beds are a little bit uncomfortable, but if you are going to be walking and just sleep at the hostel, it's OK.

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in and so cheap! Nice customer service reps who were very helpful and called me a cab when I checked out. The room was clean and private with only 4 beds and out own bathroom and shower. The complimentary breakfast was more than just powdered coffee and stale bread. I really...

The hostel/hotel is very well located as you are close to Puerto Madero and other attractions from Buenos Aires as Obelisco and Casa Rosada, it is also easy to get to La Boca, Palermo and Recoleta. The environment at the hostel is simply friendly and it has a nice pool and great facilities.

Awesome time in Buenos Aires. I went alone and met great people from all over. My only tiny criticism was the breakfast was way too sweet, some variety would be good. Otherwise a very happy camper and will definitely go again my travels take me to Buenos Aires.

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.
