The hotel is nicely located in San Telmo, close to the metro and a few blocks from Plaza Dorrego. It's an old house which causes the hotel to be extremely noisy. It surprises me this isn't mentioned in many other reviews. You can hear people talk, screaming, have sex, cleaning, everything. During the night it's quite quiet but the noise...

Great overall hostel in the historic San Telmo area, 5 minutes from the subway with a friendly hostel vibe though more low key than the big partying Buenos Aires hostels (a great thing in my opinion). The building is pretty cool with high ceilings and old molding. Everyone working is very friendly, english and spanish speaking and super helpful with...

We stayed here for a few days in a mixed dorm. First of all the dorm is not clean, barely cleaned at any time. The bathrooms looked ok, but several times there was no hot water. The worst was the safety. Somebody stole some stuff from our big backpacks we had in the dorm (wasn't very valuable stuff since we...

Great bathrooms, spacious rooms, good location, friendly staff and some peace and quiet after a hard night out - what more can you ask for? By the way: The breakfast is pretty good as well :) Ella Rose - South Africa!

Hostel inn is a great hostel, not too rowdy, but with just the right amount of playful. Relaxed and inviting owners and staff who can advise you on where to go, without the touristy speeches. Friendly, clean and the breakfast is a real treat. Will definitely be back and will always fondly recall the memories shared and the new friendships...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hostel Inn Buenos Aires is a warm comfortable hostel in the big city with a chilled out atmosphere, and a friendly and helpful staff 24-7. The place preserves It's original front, ceilings, floors and marble stairs that had been redesigned combining the antique and modern designs. The hostel is located in the heart of San Telmo, the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires. This quiet area, mentioned in several tango lyrics, is very close to the most popular market: 'Dorrego Square' with tango dancers in the cobble-stoned streets. ... more   less
