We stayed for 3 nights after moving from a filthy hotel up the road. The price was reasonable with a good breakfast. A very clean and tidy hotel that allowed me to have the best sleep of my month stay in South America. Would highly recommend. Not the cheapest, but worth it for the rest we got. Only thing we...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at Circus for 3 nights when we arrived in BA. We had booked the private room before we arrived, we had asked for a room at a higher floor and got a room at the 3d. It was clean, the AC worked and we slept well in the bed. One night it was a lot... More

We were recently here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. It is really well situated in San Telmo, perfect for visiting the market on a Sunday. We had a private room with en-suite - whilst basic it was more than fine for what we needed for our short stay. My only feedback would be that the shower temperature varied... More

Was our last night before flying out after 30 days in South America. Picked the location as quick getaway to Ministro Pistarini International Airport (Eze) Airport (still 40 mins drive down the tollway). Was 9 kms from Jorge Newbery Airport. Close to heaps of restaurants/cafe and has plenty of antique shops to keep one occupied. Not far from CBD and... More

You can get just about anywhere easily from here. Lots of restaurants, bars, and markets nearby. The property itself has a secure entry system so not just anyone can walk in off the street. The common areas were nice and just as described on their website. The rooms were fine- simple sleeping rooms with clean white linens on the beds... More

Clean rooms and common areas. Friendly staff at the reception and at breakfast. Free internet on computers in the common room. Large tv screen. Standard breakfast of pastries, fruit, tea and coffee. Swimming pool...but too small to do lengths!

At the heart of barrio San Telmo, this hostel & hotel is simply the best. I´d been there hosting and working. Difficult not to recommend. Definitly I´ll go again!!! Good little restaurants at the zone, perfect to visit Buenos Aires.

Except for one of the receptionists that wasn't really nice. I talked with 3 receptionists, the argentinian one was really helpful and was always really helpful, the blonde one (I'm sorry for not knowing his name) wasn't.
