Below average quality stay, noisy at most times since the receptionist (George) plays his vedio games very very loudly all the time as well as loud music. Rooms are in a horrible structure and have got horrible settings. Clean maybe a little bit but the whole place doesn't give you a pleasant feeling. Staff are polite though when you talk... More

The staff at Telmotango were great, in special a guy blond with stars. The location was also fantastic, walking distance to lots of the main streets and resteraunt areas. The breakfasts were great, but the room is not so good. Otherwise, a great place to stay!

I don't often write reviews online, but this time I really want to warn everyone who is planning to stay in Buenos Aires to stay away from this place!!! The service itself SUCKS! The hostel is run by a couple of guys that actually live in the hostel and give you the impression that they would rather not have you... More

Having already stayed in 3 other places in San Telmo, I can compare. At first sight the hostel seemed allright. But the rooms weren't all that; often extremely small dorms (could hardly turn) or with a very (no really, VERY) steep stairs. Bathrooms with mouldy shower curtains and with no space to undress (so you had to do this before... More

We enjoyed our stay at Telmotango hostel for our 6 day trip to BA. The room had very little natural light, but the hostel was very quiet. There was no guard rail or ladder (!) to the top bunk, so we put the mattress on the floor for our second child, which made negotiating the room a little difficult. The... More

We loved staying in this hostel for our five day trip to BA. We stayed in a two person dorm which although small was great value for two people travelling together. The location is great, the hostel is always super clean and quiet and everyone from reception to cleaners are friendly and helpful. Good choice for a relaxing in a... More

Location is ok, not far from San Telmo's 'heart' - Calle Defensa. Security is ok. Staff - attitude is depending on who's working. Breakfast - rather poor, but it seems to be a standard in hostels around Argentina. It's not a party-type hostel, so you if you're looking for silence at night, here you go. Rooms are very small and... More

This was the worst place I stayed at on my recent trip, but before I go into it, please bear in mind that you get what you pay for, and I forget now exactly how much I paid, but it was something like £18 a night for a private room (not ensuite) which included breakfast and was less than a... More
