Stayed in a mixed four bed dorm. Arrived early morning, due to my flight. They allowed me to enter my room at midday, and also offered me a cup of coffee and informed of a lower room downstairs where I could relax. Facilities were clean, good communal areas. Location was good as there are restaurants just around the corner. A... More

We spent 3 nights in a private room. The staff was really pleasant and helpful, speaking english fluently. Room was ok while a little bit small and quite noisy (we were facing the street). Cleaning lady came everyday. Kitchen/dining room were great with a nice outdoor terrasse on the back. Breakfast was a bit short but may the job.

Good vibrations, good accommodation and varied programs. Excellent opportunity to meet people from all over the world. But... Lack of transparency in the price: 4% more to pay by card and 21% of IVA tax (written somewhere in small letters). It is not the Booking's price!!! Be careful! Boa atmosfera, boa estrutura e uma agenda variada. Excelente oportunidade para conhecer... More

Hi Robson! Thanks for taking the time to write the reference! We apology for the misunderstading regarding the price. Actually, the 21% is added in the original reservation made through Booking and this is specified in their site indeed, and also in their confirmation email. We always try to make our best and indicate everything before payment, also when this... More

Had a great time here. The dorms are a good size, communal areas are good for meeting people and the breakfast was OK. They arranged my ferry to colonia Del Sacramento and gave details on local shows. Our trip had to be moved back a day on short notice due to airline strikes and they didn't charge which was great

We spent 3 nights in a private double room in America del Sur and everything was perfect: the hostel looks brand new, with a nice common room with tv, books and pc and even an outdoor asado space! Staff is really helpful and organize lots of different activities (guided tours, tango classes, partys) during the week

Secure, building great layout. The design is very modern, elevators make it easy to get to your room in case you're too tired or drunk. The staff is very accommodating and helpful.

Considering this is such a big hostel, it doesn't suffer too badly from the problems that big hostels often do. There is enough water, not too much noise, it is clean, the breakfast is sufficient and the staff are very helpful. I would say it's 'good' rather than 'very good' but it is certainly not average. I wish there was... More

Good around hostel, clean, comfortable, great location and amazing hot water pressure. There is one negative I have to mention though. In the dining area there's a giant map of the world on the wall, but right on top of NZ there's a freaking koala (see the photo). KIWIS be warned!

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.
