I arrived at the hostel and was very well welcomed, with information about the city! The hostel was clean and an elevator serves all floors. There is also an array of activities that were very interesting and fun! It's right is the middle of San Telmo! Great for the weekend fair and only 10 minutes walk to plaza 25 Mayo...

We stayed I'm the loft and the reality was very different to the photos advertised. It was quite shabby, bathroom grimy and was not very clean (we found a cigarette butt in the sink). Also the hot water was hit and miss. We had hot water one morning but it was cold the other morning. We let the water run...

Very clean, friendly, I took individual rooms, very nice. Ask for the room at 5th floor, it looks more kind of an apartment, huge, with a kitchen and a TV room inside :-) The neigboorhood is great, only a bit noisy because of the hostel environment during the evenings but it is worthwhile because is very clean, great individual rooms.

like free yoga were a plus. I was in one of the internal rooms which got very stuffy and was noisy as you needed to have internal window open for air. This meant any noise from reception travelled up. The beds themselves were comfortable and good kitchen. Wifi connection poor and computers not worth bothering about. I was meant to...

We stayed 3 nights in a 6 bed dorm. This hostel is definitely one of the best hostels we've stayed in. It has a very cheap bar, friendly and helpful staff, hot water, it's clean and the location is fab. We had Spanish classes through the hostel and also went to a fantastic tango show organised by the hostel. I'd...

I visited Ostinatto with 4 friends and we stayed in an 8 bed dorm partially separated by a wall into two sections of 4 - not overly spacious but better than many I've seen, and very comfortable and clean. All the rooms have balconies which are a nice feature and ensure plenty of fresh air. Breakfast was nice and kitchen...

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is included: bread, jam, cereals, milk, tea, orange juice. Nothing exceptional but good. Dorms are large and basic (with lockers). Shared bathrooms are clean. The internet connection is not really good in the rooms, though a little bit better on the ground floor. Location is good, in San Telmo, two blocs...

We spent 7 nights here to visit B.A. Our room was a 8 bed dorm but was separated into 4 and 4 by a wall in the middle of the room. Every room has a small balcony. They have big lockers and nice bathrooms with really good showers. At the end of the days the toilet paper always ran out....

This is a fairly big hostel, which isn't really my thing - but it was reasonably priced, and good value for money in my opinion. The kitchen facilities were great, which was a nice change. The bedrooms were spacious but the bathrooms were pretty tiny. The bar was fun. I'm not sure if it would suit solo travellers but it...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A unique minimal hostel located in the historic neighborhood of San Telmo. Ostinatto is anything but old, but a recycled XX century building that combines an old structure with a fine minimalistic design. All of our rooms are clean and functional with plenty of locker space and new beds. All in all, Ostinatto offers something for everyone; close enough to be near all the action yet far enough to relax away from the bustle of downtown. ... more   less
