We stayed five nights at Garden House, enjoyed it very much and would definitely stay there again. Top three: I) Very friendly and helpful staff, II) both balcony and roof terrace, and III) an extensive library. Feels like home.

Advertised as San Telmo but really more like Constitución, only about 3 blocks from the Constitución station, one of the most dangerous areas in the city. Basically don't cross the autopista on the other side of San Juan. Probably 6 blocks from I would actually consider San Telmo. The hostel was definitely friendly and a good way to meet other... More

Stayed in this hostel for over a week. I chose it because it seemed less party attitude than some other hostel choices, I was right. Highly recommended if you enjoy your own space or having quiet chats and meeting nice folks. Breakfast lacks variety but appreciated for what it was. Seemed like less English speaking travellers were here than any... More

We can recommend this hostel. The rooms and beds are cheap. The hostel is located in San Telmo, but near to Constitution (an area which should be avoided at night). The staff is very friendly and helpful and some of them speak English. Nice roof terrace and a fully equipped but not so clean kitchen. The rooms are good but... More

The garden and common areas are nice, those were the bits we liked. In general though the whole place is in desperate need of maintenance. You can tell they haven't put any of the profit they make back into up keep for sometime. For instance the piping in the bathroom up stairs was exposed and the bathroom sink was running... More

The staff is very friendly, helpful and english speaking. The hostel is arranged in a way that creates interactions with the rest of the guests all of the time and has a good vibe. A great place to stay in buenos aires!

This was a perfect hostel. Not to big, not to little. Very easy to get interaction with other travellers. The people who are staying here are not the average lets-go-to-south-america-and-party-and-drink-very-cheap, but more the kind of people where you can have a good conversation with. The staff in the hostel is very kind and very helpful. Location is perfect, because it... More
