Breakfast was fine and centrally located with a supermarket across the road. Kitchen is far far too small considering was a large hostel it is, the staff kitchen was bigger!! This therefore ment it was... More

This hostel gives more the feeling of a hotel then a hostel. I shared a room with just 3 other people and each room had its own shower and toilet. The breakfast was sufficient. It is situated 4 blocks from the metro station. Staff is helpful and friendly.

This is the first accommodation in our Argentina trip. We arrived late at night as the transport from the BA airport was terrible. It took us 4 hours to get out of the airport! Anyway, when we arrived at American Del Sur, it's still lively. People are sitting at the common area surfing on the internet, staff are still awake.... More

The hostel is in a great location and while it is clean, (rooms only, kitchen an absolute disgrace!!) comfortable and modern it has real security issues. My phone was stolen from our locked, private room on the fourth floor. The manager was very apologetic and I believe genuinely upset about it but this doesnt alleviate the huge inconvenience this has... More

This was by far the best Hostel I've come across in Argentina. - staff speaks great English - rooms and interior are new and kept very clean - great breakfast selection - right in the middle of San Telmo not far from Bus/Metro - quiet The only downsides are that the kitchen is a bit small for a hostel that...

First impression wasn't great--evening staff weren't very friendly, the room was dingy and not very clean with yellowed pillows, and the internet did not work in our room. However, our overall experience improved as we were there. Morning staff was very helpful and friendly and further exploration of the hostel revealed some great areas for hanging out and lounging and... More

I was quite disappointed by this hostel. Apart from one delight who was very helpful, the staff in general were rather unfriendly; one young lady in particular was quite surly putting you off approaching reception when you needed help. There was meant to be free wifi but in reality you could only access this in reception and even then it... More
