Rooms are good, very clean and the female staff are very helpful. Hot water in showers. Breakfast standard hostel breakfast. Excellent location. However, kitchen is tiny and difficult to cook in! Also, if you are looking for an atmosphere where you meet people and have easy going chats, then avoid this place. If you like all hostel staff to smile,... More

As other reviews stated the location of this hostel is amazing. At the intersection of 9 de Julio and De Mayo you have so many neighborhoods and buses right outside the door. It's a 10 minute walk to the San Teelmo market, 30 minute walk to Palermo and Recoleta neighborhoods, a 10 minute subway ride and a 1 hour train... More

Hostel Inn has a perfect location in the San Telmo neighborhood. It's safe, and close to the Sunday San Telmo market, the metro and lots of restaurants. The hostel itself has one of the best free breakfasts out of any hostel I've been to in South America as well as computers for internet, a kitchen to cook in and lots... More

I loved Hostel Inn! It's in a great spot, close to everything you could want, like La Boca and Plaza Dorrego and the center, all are close and easy to walk to. It's also a great mix of fun people and staff who want to party and explore the city, while having quiet rooms where you can escape the chaos... More

Although the hostel is a little bit old, but the location is great, and the staffs are very nice and helpful. WIFI works well, the breakfast is also fine. I think it is a very good hostel given the price you have to pay.

One of the below average hostels in Buenos Aires. The location of the hostel ist great, but that's basically it. The rooms are old and not so clean. Our room was also very dark. The staff is OK but not great. We switched to another hostel after one night; so we can not say much about the vibe of the... More

I spent one night there in a double room. Bathrooms were clean even if quite wet because of the showers. My room was ok, nice people at reception. The hostel is well located in the hearth of san telmo. For the price it's a good deal in buenos aires.

The staff are very friendly and helpful but the hostel is not at all well looked after. There are dirty, smelly floor mops pushed in every corner, the bathrooms are not cleaned very often and the kitchen is ridiculously small. The dorms are not clean- dust piled up under and on top of lockers in the room. But the summon... More

The bathroom was quite dirty.In the morning they cleaned and that was the only time of the day I could have a shower, otherwise later was a disaster. We decided to book it for the high rates, but I cannot believe how they get it!!!!For sure I won't be back and would never recommend it!!!!!

Hostel I, Manager at The Hostel-Inn Buenos Aires, responded to this review

We're very disappointed that our hostel was not as clean as expected. We have people cleaning in the mornings and in the afternoons. Sometimes what happens is that people use the shower and they make a mess because they don't use the curtain properly so the floor gets wet a lot. For us the most important thing is to have... More

This is a well located hostel, with a nice atmosphere. The staff is always willing to help. Per USD 10 you get a great breakfast, comfortable mattress and good location. The cleaning is good, We always saw someone cleaning the floors and bathrooms. Choose the dorms upstairs, they have balcony and are very spacious
