The best about the hostel is the location in the neighborhood San Telmo, which has a lot of good restaurants, bars and the metro is close by the hostel. The communal area is in the basement unfortunatly, so it's a little dark and unconfortable. The public toilets are heere too, so it sometimes has a bad smell. Also the kitchen... More

Really nice hostel, small but comfortable rooms. It has really nice common areas but the wifi can be poor in other areas. Walking distance to boca stadium and the city. Breakfast was really good with a range of cereals, cold milk, bread with a toaster, tea, coffee, cake and juice.

This hostel is more like a hotel. We loved it here and stayed twice during 2 separate trips in BA. For more reviews and tips goto www.takemeshowmetellme.com The hostel is huge, and located right in San Telmo. The staff are friendly and available. The atmosphere of the hostel was great for us- not crazy but also not sleepy. We had... More

No complaints about the functioning and condition of this hostel! It's spotless, polished, spacious, and good looking in a cutting-edge trendy interior design type of way, but thereb a little too clinical for what I ended up craving in St Telmo - which was the small, rickety and artsy hostels in old mansions spotted elsewhere in the hood. If do... More

We loved staying at America del Sur, we chose to have a double room and although it is technically a hostel it felt more like a hotel. The staff are super friendly, really helpful and love to help you get the best out of Buenos Aires. Their knowledge of local restaurants and activities is brilliant and they can match any... More

America del Sur is a fantastic hostel. The staff are helpful and kind, the rooms are large and well-equipped, and the clientele is interesting and varied. The location is excellent in the vibrant neighborhood of San Telmo. If you are looking for affordable lodging in BA, look no further.

America Del Sur was my first experience of hostel life in Buenos Aires, and this hostel was a great place to start. Private room was clean and had added bonus of safe and hairdryer. It's in a great location (make sure to check out the bar opposite with the red door!) and staff were really friendly and helpful. Had a... More

Very pleasant hostel with fantastic staff and plenty on offer. Free tours of some parts of the city. Very well located in Buenos Aires. The double rooms give onto a relatively noisy street but they are OK at night. Easy access by public transport. Good breakfast included. Good value for money

San Telmo is a nice area to stay in, with affordable little eateries (they might look like cheap pizza places from the outside, but a lot of them have good wine and steak for ridiculously low prices) and more of a neighborhood-vibe. And of course there's the big market on Sundays. The hostel's reception staff was super nice and very... More

I totally recommend that hostel, it's the most modern and the cleanest one on my trip to South America. Everything, the common area, the breakfast, rooms and walking tours organized by hostel were great. Also, the staff they have - these are some great people who told us a lot about the area, the neighborhoods, Argentina in general, the hostel... More
