I booked 6 nights in this hostel, and couldn't have made a better choice. The location is perfect, when you read in their website that is walking distance of many sightseeings you can trust them, and the pictures are real as well. The staff is great, the accommodations very good, hot water all the time, good breakfast a great environment... More

Ostinatto was a fantastic place to stay while in BA. Friendly, helpful staff and very central to all the action in San Telmo. As a solo traveller this was a great place to meet other travelers! There is a warm and welcoming bar which is a great meeting place. The Friday night Asado was yummy and get directions to La... More

If you're traveling on a budget in Buenos Aires, Ostinatto is a best case scenario for you. Large, comfy, quiet and neat rooms, The aren't any private bathrooms, but Ostinatto has a crowd of respectful and neat regulars who keep the bathrooms as tidy as possible. Every week or so, owner Frederico hosts a BBQ on the top of the... More

We started our South America journey here, and it remained one of our favorite hostels. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Plus, they all spoke very good English! We found it to be clean and well-kept with a good breakfast and nice bar. Ostinatto also offer a number of good services, such as Spanish lessons, yoga, and tango lessons.... More

I arrived at the hostel and was very well welcomed, with information about the city! The hostel was clean and an elevator serves all floors. There is also an array of activities that were very interesting and fun! It's right is the middle of San Telmo! Great for the weekend fair and only 10 minutes walk to plaza 25 Mayo... More

We stayed I'm the loft and the reality was very different to the photos advertised. It was quite shabby, bathroom grimy and was not very clean (we found a cigarette butt in the sink). Also the hot water was hit and miss. We had hot water one morning but it was cold the other morning. We let the water run... More

Very clean, friendly, I took individual rooms, very nice. Ask for the room at 5th floor, it looks more kind of an apartment, huge, with a kitchen and a TV room inside :-) The neigboorhood is great, only a bit noisy because of the hostel environment during the evenings but it is worthwhile because is very clean, great individual rooms.

like free yoga were a plus. I was in one of the internal rooms which got very stuffy and was noisy as you needed to have internal window open for air. This meant any noise from reception travelled up. The beds themselves were comfortable and good kitchen. Wifi connection poor and computers not worth bothering about. I was meant to... More

We stayed 3 nights in a 6 bed dorm. This hostel is definitely one of the best hostels we've stayed in. It has a very cheap bar, friendly and helpful staff, hot water, it's clean and the location is fab. We had Spanish classes through the hostel and also went to a fantastic tango show organised by the hostel. I'd... More

I visited Ostinatto with 4 friends and we stayed in an 8 bed dorm partially separated by a wall into two sections of 4 - not overly spacious but better than many I've seen, and very comfortable and clean. All the rooms have balconies which are a nice feature and ensure plenty of fresh air. Breakfast was nice and kitchen... More
