If you've stayed in hostels, you know the deal: strange bedfellows who don't always have the same standards as you do. But what makes a great hostel great is the helpfulness of the staff, and in this regard Galeon excels. Always friendly, always smiling, and spoke enough English to be amazingly helpful to this hapless Gringo. And I heard they... More

We went back at this hotel because the first time we loved this place. We booked a room for 4 nights. We wrote 2 emails advising that we are going to arrive late, very late. No response. As we arrived, no room at 4 in the morning. The hotel noticed our booking and we were registered but they didn't affected... More

My husband & kids stayed here during our stay in Buenos Aires. The hostel is safe and in a pleasant part of the city. It is clean and the employees are very kind and professional. The common bathrooms were always extremely clean and neat. The rooms were also well kept with ample space. There are many good pubs and restaurants... More

Stayed here for only one night with my boyfriend before catching a flight to Patagonia and felt like we were staying in a hotel! Rooms and bathrooms were exceptionally clean and spacious. Our bedroom also had a nice balcony to sit on. Breakfast was delicious with a homemade tart included in the options and the staff were extremely helpful and... More

This is by far the cleanest hostel I have come across in my travels. The older gentlemen who owns it is meticulous and ensures that the hostel is always clean and tidy (a huge plus in hostels). The owner does not speak any English, but we were able to communicate through broken Spanish or Google translator. All staff members are... More

I stayed here for a week. It is a great value place, very comfortable and fabulous location - in San Telmo and next to one of the main underground stops (Independencia). The breakfast is nice, they bake cakes every morning! MOST OF ALL the staff are really lovely, I actually felt sad to go! Right from the housekeeping staff, to... More

I felt so lucky to have found this place. My six night stay there was fantastic. It’s tough to find a nice, mid-range price hotel in San Telmo. I wound up at the Galeon after having two horrible nights at the Ayre Portenos, which was a flop house for teens. I immediately liked the Galeon. The staff were incredibly nice... More

I booked this hostel very late and was very pleased to find a single room with air conditioning for a reasonable cost in BA. The hostel is in San Telmo and is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Casa Roasada but is well located for San Telmo restaurants and Sunday market. There is a metro station within 5 minutes... More
