Stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm and loved the place. In fact- probably the best hostel I have stayed in during my 3 months in a South America. New modern hostel with great common area, inside and outside, fast wifi throughout the hostel, air conditioned, secure, 24/7 reception, clean rooms, hot showers, and a chill out... More

I stayed here two nights before my study abroad program started because flights were cheaper the day before. My cheaper flight, however, didn't get in until very early morning, but the staff was super understanding and helpful. I was able to familiarize myself with the city with the extra time and the help of the staff. The people there are... More

We stayed at ADS for a few days in December and both thought it was fantastic. The twin private room we had was great - quiet, spotlessly clean, with a private bathroom and towels - and at ab out £35 a night, incredible value too. More like a budget hotel than a hostel (I mean that in a good way).... More

The hostel is well located in San Telmo, close to the Sunday markets, supermarkets, banks, restuarants and other attractions. The hostel itself is modern and clean, with many indoor sitting areas and a lovely outdoor patio. Each dorm room of four people is key card access only, and each has its own bathroom. The staff are attentive and knowledgable. A... More

I loved the stay at the hostel for three reasons: 1) helpful staff: big smile and helpful information 2) nice peel travellers. Got useful information from nice folks met at the Hostle 3) good restaurants near by. Just one or two block down Chlie St. Lots of good restaurants and Cafe. There is one super market across the street. What... More

I stayed in two different rooms. The first one was good, the second was a bit filthy and dirty. Rooms itself are rather small. Staff is okay and friendly. The common areas are functional, however look a bit clinical and loud music is played all day long. Breakfast was good. Wifi only works sometimes and in some parts of the... More

We stayed in this hostel for 3 in nights at the beginning of our trip in Argentina. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The location in San Telmo was great. Overall, the room was clean, they supplied towels and soap, and there is a small safe in the room (private room). They were able to provide vouchers for a... More

Great value hostel! I stayed here twice during my stay in Argentina. Clean. Easy to find. Always hot water and decent pressure for showers. Reliable internet facilities. Relaxed atmosphere. Points for location being in lively San Telmo and only a few minutes walk from bars, cafes, ice cream parlors, restaurants, grocery stores, banks & city landmarks. The staff are approachable,...

Stayed 10 days on a Habitat Global Village build. Hostel staff are fantastic, the location is great, the building provided ample spaces for our team of 16 to gather for various meetings and the odd wine tasting. Rooms are very nice, air conditioning and internet are excellent. Always lots of hot water for a shower. All rooms have plug adapters... More
