It was not so much the cockroach but the reaction when i told the management or at least I asked for some spray to kill the oversized sucker! They did not have any spray, but did offer to clean the room the following day, while admitting "there are many (cockroaches)".... After that conversation the staff were very rude and unfriendly,...

Excellent location, in the middle of San Telmo, a welcoming part of BA to explore when visiting this magnificent city for the first time. Nice hangout area at the reception where a plentiful breakfast is served. Friendly staff, clean rooms and clean showers.

It's a very nice hostel located in a good area of Buenos Aires. Felt confortable to get around the cit from there. The hostel itself is good, has everything one needs, quiet, sometimes a little noisy but nothing serious. Recommend it if you want to stay in San Telmo.

Hostel Tango is a good affordable hostel in a great location with lovely staff. The building is beautiful with the rooms leading off a courtyard and passage to the kitchen. It is clean and simple with a large kitchen. I would definitely come back again.

We stayed here for 8 days in room 6 which is next to reception and a little courtyard. You can see from my photos how close we were. There are actually two rooms in reception to avoid. Our room was one with en-suite and It was a little cramped in the bathroom. Some of the other rooms with en-suite looked... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. We booked rooms with bathroom. Rooms were too small. Furniture is very simple: 1 duplex bed (we booked twin) and wardrobe. Plug-sockets were in really bad conditions: we can't charge anything because plugs fell down from plug-sockets. It was really cold in rooms: we were there in winter. Breakfast was more than simlpe: 2 small... More

Where did they take the picture for TripAdvisor? Rooms are far from being like that. Mine was small, no hangers, bedside lamp did not work, noisy surrounding, small towels, hot and humid, old carpet floor. There must be something better for the same price. However people at the front desk were very nice, as usually is the crowd of backpackers.

Behind the large wooden doors at street level hides a haven away from the busy streets of San Telmo. We were a little apprehensive on arriving in Buenos Aires having heard numerous stories of theft and attacks , so when we arrives at Hostel Tango to be meet by such friendly staff was a pleasant surprise.
