If you are a backpacker and are looking for a comfortable stay in an affordable hostel set up, with the right amount of privacy, with friendly staff with whom you can have a nice friendly chat to brush up your broken spanish, cozy rooms in a location where you can walk to most of the tourist places yet not be...

This hostel was a great price for the room - large private room with clean, shared bathroom. We only stayed one night but it was a great location with easy transport between the ferry terminal and the airport. The front desk was friendly with restaurant suggestions and let us hang out in the lobby after checkout. A great breakfast was... More

This hard to find gem close to Ave. 9th Julio on Ave. Mexico is simply so because its entrance way is just a closed door with a small sign in the glass above the door. Then stairs to the reception, rooms and more stairs if you are on the second floor... Easy public access routes both local transit and to... More

No complaints about this place - really good value and would recommend it. Rooms are clean and quiet although slightly small. Although on a scruffy street, the location is good and safe. The staff are super helpful, helping us with tours and currency exchange. Their English is not good, but our basic Spanish and Google translate got us through!

While I arrived, the counter asked if I could speak Spanish. (And their dog came around!) Getting my "no," they tried hard to use Google Translate to "tell" me everything I should know about the hotel and the neighborhood. They provided two volunteer-guided city tour chances, and I like the recommendation! The rooms are clean and quiet, yet the TV... More

I've just left here today and wanted to write a review because I was so happy with my choice to stay here. The room is small and you share a bathroom so if you're not OK with that look elsewhere. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom and enjoy staying in a place with character and personal attention this may... More

Was traveling solo; spent 6 pleasant days in Viejo Telmo. Was provided a room with a shared bathroom. The location is absolutely perfect if you had to get around the popular spots in the city. The hotel itself is in San Telmo and if you love walking, you could to Puerto Madero, Pacific Gallery, Florida street, the Pink House. The... More

We stayed at Viejo Telmo for 4 nights - The location for San Telmo and Tango are good with a subway very close, but overall we found this place disappointing. The location is on the edge of town for most attractions if you like to walk but the actual road is a little sketchy. We found 2 guys constantly frequenting... More

Excellent stay at VIejo Telmo hotel. Room was clean, we were upgraded and had our private bathroom, they gave us advices about places to go out. They were always happy to help even though we had a LOT of questions. The kitchen could be cleaner but the rooms are comfortable and clean. Bathroom also. Really nice place to stay at.... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
