There are many hostels in downtown BA, but Tanguera is probably the most affordable. My room was ok and the staff is very friendly. The people at my Spanish School told me about this place and I think that for what you get is a great option.

I highly recommend this hotel if you are on budget and is located Downtown Buenos Aires, walking distance from many spanish schools and restaurants. Staff is very helpful and professional. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. It is a friendly place. I will come back in a heartbeat, since the quality price ratio is the best.

The hostel is considerable old, but clean and with staff that actually care. Personally I only stayed for a few nights and thats all, whats I truly appreciate is the help they give me regarding what to do in Buenos Aires. For example I wanted to learn Spanish and they recommend me with the Piedras Spanish School Buenos Aires at...

I stayed a total of 5 night there. The hotel is not easy to find from the outside as there is no sign, but the address alone is enough to find it. the building is amazing and so typical with its staircase and glass roof. It has a feel of what Buenos aires probably looked like at its summum. The...

Stayed here for 10 nights in total. First of all, the location is just amazing. It's right in the center of San telmo, a beautiful histrical area of Buenos Aires, there are tons of restaurant and cafe nearby. The famous Sunday market is held just 2-3 blocks away from here. The staff is very helpful, friendly, organized people. You can...

I think the main issue with this place is that the building and its interior is just old, and therefore difficult to maintain and keep looking fresh. But the price is low enough to keep you from complaining too much. The is breakfast included, it is very basic but this is normal for Argentina. The whole place needs a refurbishment...

This hostel is ok. If you need somewhere cheap for the night, then go. It's in a good location, on the north side of San Telmo, and close to many restaurants and bars (and a particularly good steak house less than two blocks away). However it is grotty, the kitchen is not a kitchen by any decent standards (it is...

The staff were friendly and welcoming, the kitchen cozy and good wifi. I shared a private double with friends and found the bed to be uncomfortable but the pillows were feather. Bathroom shower was not separate from toilet thus it was a bit a mess to clean up after showering. Breakfast was really good but nothing special. I would stay...

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.
