We spent 7 nights here to visit B.A. Our room was a 8 bed dorm but was separated into 4 and 4 by a wall in the middle of the room. Every room has a small balcony. They have big lockers and nice bathrooms with really good showers. At the end of the days the toilet paper always ran out.... More

This is a fairly big hostel, which isn't really my thing - but it was reasonably priced, and good value for money in my opinion. The kitchen facilities were great, which was a nice change. The bedrooms were spacious but the bathrooms were pretty tiny. The bar was fun. I'm not sure if it would suit solo travellers but it... More

I stayed at Ostinatto twice. Both times I felt right at home. The first time I stayed one week to learn Spanish with the Spanish school that teaches inside the hostel named Porteñisima escuela de español. They teach group and private lessons. If you want to polish your Spanish or get the essential Spanish basics, I can highly recommend this... More

Overall this is a nicely run, if industrially-sized hostel. The fifth floor roof terrace and upstairs fourth floor rec room allow for nice getaway spots, but in any event the rooms don't suffer too much sound from the downstairs bar that is part of the hostel (and has many good drink specials over a very generously-lengthed happy hour). On the... More

This was my very first experience staying in a hostel and I was pleasantly surprised! The staff was very kind and helpful. The style of the hostel was very nice as well open concept/high ceilings. We stayed in the private room on the roof for a couple of nights which was really nice with A/C. We also stayed in another... More

I've stayed at Ostinatto twice, and both time ended up extending my stay. It is in the perfect area of San Telmo, walkable to everything including the metro. I was there in the summer during a heat wave and I appreciated that the rooms have really high ceilings, made it bearable even without a/c. I was traveling solo and I... More

Normally I stay in 4 or 5 star hotels, but for a holiday trip to Buenos Aires, I decided to have a total different experience like a typical business trip. My guidebook showed me a very good recommendation. In the middle of the hot spot district of San Telmo, there is a clean and very nice hostel, named Ostinatto. It... More

But a bit run down. We were unfortunate to land during the worst heat wave in 50 years. Also, while our room was large and had big doors that opened onto the street, it was very noisy due to the location. What was most interesting was talking to the other travellers who had interesting stories to tell, including the Canadian... More
