The owners are very nice and able to communicate in English. Clean shower rooms. Nice patio. The portion of breakfast is small (but it's common in Argentina). You can access to the Sunday market by crossing only few intersections. Beware of the shaky bunk beds and mosquitoes.

We been traveling all around south america and this is the best hostel ever!!! the house is beautiful, safe and quiet. People who work at primo are very friendly and helpful. We spend 3 night at double room and 2 more at the 8 people dorm, both experiences was great. the only problem was the guy who was snoring LOL.

This hostel is amazing and the staff Brenda, Fernando, and Diego are the coolest. By the end of my stay, it felt like home. Highly recommend Primo to anyone who appreciates good value, laidback staff and great location. Viva San Telmo!

A really nice atmosphere at a good price, located in the nice neigberhood of San Telmo. It has a good area to stay and a kitchen which I think is important for a hostel. The staff is great! I really recommend this hostel

Located in San Temlo makes this hostel a perfect hub for exploring BA. We orignally wanted to stay for a week but the decision to stay one more week was easy when the hostel was as nice as Primo. Clean, great atmosphere and service minded staff. We would recommend this hostel to anyone!
