We stayed here after a friend recommended the place and the excellent reviews here on trip advisor. We checked in smoothly and were impressed with the hostel, as it's well presented with modern facilities. We felt comfortable on arrival here. However, the hostel was robbed on our stay and we soon found out that keys to rooms opened other rooms... More

Circus is in the heart of a great part of Buenos Aires, there are plenty of little restaurants and bars around and easy access to other parts of the city. The staff are great and were able to help us out with our queries, their English is quite good. Our room was basic but clean, the bed was very comfortable... More

Very friendly, smiling and flexible staff. I'm a woman who travelled solo. I felt safe and comfortable at Circus. The place has a good atmosphere. The room, although rather modest in decoration, was clenaned and the bed made everyday. Both the room and the lobby were warm even in the winter. I had reserved only three nights at Circus, but...

We had the most pleasant experience with the receptionist at the Circus Hostel & Hotel. She was the most helpful person ever though unfortunately I've forgotten her name! Please give her a raise in pay!

Everything went as planned. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The private room was clean and had a hot shower. We did not socialize much in the main lobby, but it seemed like people were having a lot of fun hanging out. The location was great. It was only a few blocks from 9 de julio (the main avenue... More

Considering the price the room and place in general it's great! The common area it’s beautiful, good Wi-Fi in all the place, staff it’s very helpful, I stayed there in 2010 and I was so happy about the hostel that I came back, but I have to say this time I was a little disappointed with the room.
