I stayed in a four bedroom female dorm (with ensuite) for five nights in Aug 2014. I loved it here! The room and bathroom was cleaned every day and there was also a heater which was great for winter. Breakfast is delicious (medialunas, bread, spreads, eggs, tea and coffee) and free. They also host a BBQ each Thursday night on... More

This hostel shares a building with other hostels. This one has the outdoor roof access, which is really nice. It is in a safe location in the center of town near the metro. They offer a basic breakfast, and have a nice common area to meet others. Many guests gather at night for drinks on the patio. The staff varies... More

Its all in my headline, the location is central to eatery, transportation, attractions and shopping. The hostel more like a bread and breakfast. Awesome breakfast, including fresh orange juice. They will also exchange your money for a great rate and the service and cleanliness is top notch. I had a private room with shower for under 35 usd a night.... More

I was reading the reviews of the other travelers about this hostel and after staying there I realized what is going on. All of us writing here, we are actually reviewing 3 different hostels on the same name on trip advisor, owned by same people. In the same building there is a Estoril Premium (1st floor), Estoril Youth (3rd floor)... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room in Hostel Estoril for 4 nights. We were so pleased with this hostel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Location is excellent and breakfast was great, it included scrambled eggs. BBQ was delicious and a great way to meet fellow travellers. I would definitely recommend this hostel to a friend.

The Hostel is very central, has a bus station and subway just around the corner. It has various floors. We stayed at the third floor and it was clean and the receptionists were very helpful. They gave us tips and helped us around town.

I stayed in this hostel twice, initially for 1 week and then for 3 more weeks. It has an excellent central location for sightseeing- it is very easy and quick to walk to the Plaza de Mayo and the Casa Rosada (approx 15-20 mins). It is also very easy to walk to Florida, the main shopping street (15 mins) and... More

I stayed here two times throughout my recent South America adventures. As a solo traveler, I liked the central location, staff and common areas of the hostel. I also really liked that the hostel had three different levels (first level seemed the quietest) and an amazing roof deck (my favorite part of the hostel). Breakfast was basic, but worked. Staff...

Clean rooms and fun staff. I was so happy to stay here and not in some of the dumps that exist in Buenos Aires. I felt safe everywhere around there and the place across the road does great steak.Would definitely recommend.

I visited Buenos Aires for 5 nights towards the end of April with two friends (in total we were three guys). Based on reviews from TripAdvisor, I was excited to visit this hostel, but was SORELY disappointed and cannot understand how this place is the best rated hostel on here. I will completely agree with other reviewers that this hostel... More
