I loved the charm of this hostel inside. The door to the room is huge, old classic design. The floor is aged wood and the ceiling was 20 feet high. I thought I got a super deal since I could easily access puerto madero, San Telmo market and buses/subway easily on foot. The staff arranged a bike tour through Tangol... More

Located in the centre of San Telmo it didnt matter that this hotel was basic as we knew we would be out for food and drinks. Close to some great restaurants even being so central it was quiet. The hotel is manned 24hours and reception needs to open the main door for you so security was great. Service was helpful... More

This hotel has the type of accommodations I seek; it is exceptionally well located, and I just had to pay for a bed and a private bath, not for TV or other distractions that would keep me from wondering through such an interesting city. The hotel has a nice room facing the street where one can have meals; there is... More

after going to an awfull hotel i found Hotel Abolivar to be classic and nice, great attention and spacious bedrooms. For $37 a night a double room with private bathroom. The location is the best, just 3 blocks from a plaza with live music, restaurants, bistros. All the neighbourhood is pleasant and shops are everywhere, specially antique stores. Creativity all...

The location could not be any better than this for the price paid. In the heart of San Telmo, a great place to mingle with the locals. Some tourists in San Telmo but mainly during the antique market on Sundays. The reason I say fabulous place for "travellers" is that the average "tourist" would probably find this place to be...

In our instance we didn't pay much (only $30 for the night as we wanted a quick one night stopover) but to be honest I wouldn't have stayed there for nothing, in fact we ended up changing our plans and taking an overnight bus to Mendoza instead! The whole place was shabby, poorly decorated and not properly cleaned, which is... More

Simple hotel, very basic. You get what you pay for. We shared a twin single room, the room was clean, the beds seemed clean. (Never sure, so we just chucked a sheet on them anyway). The majority of the staff were very helpful and friendly, there was only one older gent who wasn't very interested. Fantastic location, just 3 mins... More

Only a 10 minute walk into the city centre and safe neightbourhood. The bathrooms are nice and spacious. Drawbacks - they offer no facilities, no kitchen, internet or TV common room. The rooms are VERY basic and need some work done.

Upon arriving, I read the previous review on bed bugs so I inspected the bedding and mattress. After sleeping the first night I hadn't noticed any bites, bugs or poop spots so I think I might be in the clear. The first room I stayed in had no heating since it's meant to summer guests. The second night I checked... More
