Stayed at Pax for 6 nights in a private double room. There were only a couple of negative points about the hostel: firstly the wifi was very patchy and didn't actually work in our room at all, slightly irritating when trying to plan and book other parts of your trip if you are travelling. The other was the confusion over... More

PAX Hostel was such a homey and fun hostel. The staff were so helpful and accomodating. Making sure you get in the taxi ok, telling the driver the address. They went above and beyond for me which I am very grateful. Definitely come back again.

We stayed is this hostel for two nights. The staff are friendly and the place is clean. It is located very central and in handy walking distance to all necessary travel routes. We stayed in a private double room and although it was clean it really could have done with a lick of paint. Having said that would definitely stay... More

Great Hostel. Everyone was so great and it made me feel like I was at home! I was here a year ago and there are some insane improvements! The new bar is fantastic and the kitchen actually fits more than 2 people! You definitely get more than what you pay for! The front desk staff really know about the city... More

It smelled like smoke.It also was not in a nice area and the lockers were not in the room. Not much of an atmosphere for meeting people. Breakfast was not bad. The rooms were nice and large. It was an ok place but because of the smell and location would not recommend.

I had an awesome time at this hostel. It'´s great place to meet other travellers...there is something going on at the bar every night, and the best is Friday beer pong. They'd just finished putting in a new bar and kitchen when I got there. Especially considering how low the price is for the good quality you get, I'd recommend... More

Stayed at PAX in 2010 and returned in 2014 to see if things were still as cheap and fun. Not only had the place stayed the same, but most of the staff had also stayed on after four years. Good location, walking distance of the markets/restaurants in San Telmo, Obelisco, Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada. It's also just around the... More

A great cheap hostel in the middle of San Telmo. Staff are friendly and the reception is open 24hrs. The rooms are large and have air conditioning. The hostel has good security and there is a Bar in basement which is handy. Breakfast is not that good. There is a party vibe about the place.
