A group of 24 of us spent 4 nights here. The pool is great, the rooms are clean, the bathrooms are small but do the job well, and they have "lockers" for you to keep your bags in for every room just bring your own lock. The location was walking distance from great places in BA. Had free wifi but... More

Having read all the great reviews we were surprised by the Circus hostel. Whilst the room and location were great the noise from other people was intolerable. Considering we had to sign to say we understood all the hostel rules when we arrived,most nights people were sat around the pool smoking and talking from midnight until 4am and even with... More

This hostel was great! My husband and I rented a private room with our bathroom for a very good rate. The room included lockers for our bags and free wifi which worked a treat. The hostel is very modern and clean and more like a hotel. Breakfast was basic and was often busy, but we were grateful for what they... More

Have mixed feelings about our stay here in a quadruple room, I do think for the price the location in San Telmo is excellent and using one of their maps you can walk the whole city which is fab as well as soak up the atmosphere of the Sunday market. There are a number of great restaurants in walking distance... More

The Hostel is quite good. I stayed there with my wife nearly 60 days. The staff is very helpful and friendly specially Rafael and Sebastián. The social areas small but nice and cozy:the swimming pool, video/Tv and pool are suitable for mingling with other tourist. Everything very nice, light and friendly. Breakfast is above average. The 3 things that bothered... More

room was clean, decent for what you're paying for in BA. the best part was how helpful the employees were. they will even exchange USD for you at the front desk, and the rate is better than at the bank.

This is an excellent hostel, very clean, well facilitated with many beds having wall sockets nearby, cleaned everyday, bathrooms in every room, soap and shampoo provided, and friendly staff with even crisps, soft drinks and beer on sale at reception for same prices as kioskos. Unfortunately I am a backpacker and one of the most important requirements I have is... More

We had a great stay in this hotel with very friendly personnel, especially Bruna. She had great tips and was always ready to help us, give good recommendations for things to do in the city. She even offered to lend us her bus card (which we didn't use), so she made us feel very much welcome. The hotel can easily... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
