Circus Hostel & Hotel is in a great spot, just 2 blocks from the San Telmo market and a 15 minute walk from Plaza de Mayo and other sights. San Telmo seems a little bit dangerous when you first arrive (or at least for me coming from Canada!), but once you realize that graffiti is a way of life and... More

Really nice hostel! Much more like a hotel. Clean rooms, nice pool, comfy places to hang out. I really enjoyed my stay there!!! And super friendly and helpful staff! Five stars for sure. San Telmo is the best neighborhood to stay in, in my opinion. So much going on!

I stayed 1 night. Stuff very helpful. Nice small pool. Bathroom clean and new. For me one thing was missing - a kitchen with fridge. I had to get up early to catch my flight and couldn't prepare a breakfast for myself.

Nice small hostel in San Telmo. Room was fine could do with some work air conditioning wasn't working in our room and it smelled a bit fubky. Nice small pool out the back. Breakfast was OK too with bread and pastries. Nice market in San Telmo on a Sunday.

Would absolutely stay again. The room was nice enough and the shower had hot water and great pressure. I found a spot or two on the bed linen which I didn't love. But nonetheless, the staff was really nice and this is a great hostel.

I stayed here for three days in a private room and would definitely come back, it feels more like a hotel. I was on the fourth floor, it was quiet, the room was cleaned daily, the breakfast is good and the front desk staff are always very helpful and polite. The hostel is located close to all main touristic places... More

We stayed as a couple for a few nights and loved the hostal. The rooms were basic but functional and fit for purpose. They were cleaned daily. The communal area was very welcoming and the front staff were helpful and friendly, which is all you can ask for. There is a small pool to the rear, with seating along side.... More

Stayed here for a couple of days. Nice ambience - very relaxed. Nice wee pool. Great location. And San Telmo is super cool. Special mention for Andrea. Back in BA in a week and will definitely look to stay here again.

Good place for end of SA Adventure. Breakfast good, staff helpful, pool nice to relax by after long walks. I would stay here again so I could have more time to explore this neighborhood. Area closer to EZE international airport, walk about 15 blocks to get to cathedral metro stop.
