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.

The staff are nice, mainly Thiago and Luiza that I had more contact! Cleanliness and environment are some of the efforts from the hostel! The only exception is the shower and...

This is an above-average hostel in what concerns comfort. Extremely comfortable and modern, clean and with a great breakfast. The location is also great because it is a typical neighbourhood with a lot of culture and events happening every day.

This place is the MOST luxurious hostel you will ever stay in. It really is more of a hotel than a hostel. I had a private room with comfortable bed. Very clean and modern. Breakfast was good. Staff were very helpful and I didn't even have time to use the pool or TV room. Great location for San Telmo too....

I stayed in this Hostel for 5 nights in a 4-bed-dorm with bathroom. I felt very safe, since every room has a keycard to get in and there is a locker for each person. The cleaning staff cleans the room once a day and makes the bed. The breakfast was very nice, compared to the many other hostels I stayed...

A nice surprise in San Telmo! Basic, clean rooms with aircon, a lovely common area with a lovely pool, a nice (basic) breakfast, friendly staff and a good location with lots of dining and nightlife options around and walking distance to many of the attractions. Great athmosphere and value for money - we will stay here again.

Fun and social place to stay! Very convenient for the Sunday San Telmo market! They had an activities board that offered suggestions for the day. In addition the breakfast offered each morning was small but delicious.

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.

“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.”
