This place has it all. Want to get around the city? The subte is only a few blocks away, plugging you into any part of the city you can think of. Walking distance to wonderful, affordable restaurants and bars. Any itch you want to scratch, San Telmo is one of the best neighborhoods to be.

Hostel is clean, safe, very hip. Rooms are nice and comfy, shower might get a bit cramped, but water heat is great. AC works fine, but if you prefer cool, natural air, open the window and let a swift breeze sweep in. Rooms are cleaned daily and are always spotless. Breakfast is EXCELLENT for what you pay. High on sugars, but hey, that's part of the Buenos Aires experience, and if you're not keen on that, there's always the cornflakes and a nice selection of fruit.

Staff is friendly and welcoming, what more could you ask for? All in all, a great home away from home.

My teenage daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights. We reserved a hotel-type room, rather than a shared hostel room. The room was simple -- no TV or decorations, but clean and comfortable. The maid service was good. Towels and soaps provided. Wifi reception was good everywhere we went in the hotel.

Hotel facility was very nice. We didn't use it, but there is a small pool with a seating area and grill, in addition to an indoor lounge with TV and pool table.

Excellent front desk service from all 4 of the staff we interacted with -- suggestions for restaurants, information on using public transportation, calling for taxis etc. You can change dollars, euros, etc for pesos at the front desk at a good exchange rate. Can also buy a Sube card (for traveling on BA's great public transportation system).

Breakfast area was very pleasant and clean, with both indoor and outdoor seating (very nice to be in the cool fresh air in the morning). Included breakfast is bread heavy, but still good -- plenty of coffee, juice, croissants, bread, sweet pastries, some fresh fruit, and packages of marmalade, cream cheese, and dulce de leche. You can also get scrambled eggs with bacon/sausage for an additional $3(US) -- just pay at the front desk before going in to breakfast and they give you a paper to give to the breakfast room staff. We did this a couple of times, but ate the provided breakfast otherwise.

The location is great for exploring San Telmo, which is our favorite part of BA. It is close to everything you want to visit in San Telmo, without being in the noisiest areas.

Although we saw many guests at breakfast, we did not experience any noise at night -- even though our room had a window overlooking the pool and social area.

Great stay at a superb price!

Friendly atmosphere, 24 hour front desk, affordable, good location, very basic rooms but clean. Nice pool and communal area. They let us store our bags after we'd checked out so we could be tourists for the day before our evening flight.

Room Tip: The shower rail was made of plastic and fell down. One that was screwed into the wall would be better. Minor detail. Thanks for having us.

We stayed twice at the circus hotel while traveling through Argentina. Loved the location, San telmo is our favorite neighborhood in Buenos Aires with a lot of bars and restaurants. The terasse and the pool at the hostel was amazing for hot days, to chill and meet people. Overall the ambiance was very nice. The staff helped us a lot in going around the city and where to go for diner or shows. I would definitely go back if one day I am back in buenos Aires and I definitely recommend this hostel-hotel.
