Very friendly staff, intimate atmosphere, great location in San Telmo area; perfect introduction to hostels for a first time back-packer such as myself. Great value for money, supermarket just across the road, and decent continental breakfast served.

Stayed here for 5 nights with a friend. First place we'd been in argentina. Great hostel. Spotless rooms. We were in an ensuite 4 bed dorm with air con. Great breakfast. Decent wifi. Is a big hostel so is a good place to meet other travelers and get travel tips. Hostel has free walking tours and tango lessons as well... More

Great location, nice clean rooms with private bathrooms, great basement area, quiet hostel, cheap beers, this is not a party hostel. There is a great bar across the road with a red door. Staff are kind and helpful. Don't even bother with the breakfast, but that didn't really matter as there was a supermarket directly opposite.

The staff at America del Sur is unbeatable. They will help you sort out how to do & see anything and everything in Buenos Aires. Located in a great location in San Telmo. Not a far walk from the Subte. Rooms are cleaned every day & we had a hot shower every day. Breakfast is simple but satisfactory. I highly... More

On first arrival I thought that this hostel would have no soul! It is larger than any other hostel I've stayed in, it was fantastic! We went on the free walking tour when we arrived which was great as it gave us a sense of where we actually were. When we were able to check in to our room we... More

Without such a fabulous staff, this hostel would be just another good hostal in South America. However, the girls who run the front desk are fantastic! They are friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in their guests. When we arrived, they asked us to leave our key with the front desk each time we left so that they could get to... More

Nice place to stay. Staff are fun and very helpful, always had answer to my questions. Sweet breakfast with coffee and juice. The kitchen was small but it was always available to cook dinner at night. This place was comfortable and relaxing. I'd recommend it.

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
