Location great and staff were generally nice. However, room was tiny and basic, walls are thin and it lacks the personal touch. A good base, but nothing out of the ordinary. The breakfast was decent, but you need to get there early as they run out of some items :)

The staff particularly are young and cool, there is a very comfy feeling to being here and everyone is so friendly. There's a perfect outdoor section for mingling, and a sweet pool for washing off all the walking. A dorm is quite cheap and worth more than it costs.

Stayed 4 nights in total. Booked directly from their website. Good location. Clean rooms. They can arrange pick up from airport. Breakfast is provided with good selection. Free wifi available in room. Their staff is superb and very friendly. Has a supermarket just a few meters away. Would definitely stay here again when in Buenos Aires.

Thank you very much for your review, We try hard to clean the rooms as fast as possible but check out is 11am and on high season is not easy to have the room ready before check in time already inform when you book. A good solution for this is booking an extra night , the night before. Thank you. More

Very well placed in a unique part of town. Free breakfast each day is a greet meeting point for guests, as well as a really charming pool area and common area. Staff were very helpful and friendly, English speaking and extremely hospitable. No hesitations at all to recommend this place!

I stayed in circus hostel/hotel for 4 nights on vacation. The staff were so nice and accommodating. They helped me call local businesses to find out their hours and prices. The beds are so comfortable and the showers are clean with hot water and perfect water pressure. They even have a pool! The location is great in the middle of... More

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
