This hotel is a place for budget travelers who will spend a long time in Buenos Aires. Its cheap and its close to the San Telmo Plaza. Free internet, 180 pesos for a single person in a dubbelbed. Summary words: Cheap, kind but lazy staff, noicy,and awful security. The hotel is very cheap and there are common bathrooms were the... More

This place is really good if you're on a budget. The room was basic but clean and the showers are hot. The only problem was in December, during summer, it was incredibly hot so quite uncomfortable without air con. Would definitely stay here again in a different season.

Pro's Cost - for BA this is the best value place you'll find if you just want a bed and can see past the basic room. It's clean and offers what you need. Great location! Antique market on the weekend is an awesome place to get lost in. Atmospheric traditional old building, staff very sweet and smiling, plenty eating/drinking options... More

The reviews for this hotel/hostel are average so on booking this hostel I remained open minded but booked it because of how cheap it was and wanting to watch our pennies. On arrival all was good and our room was very pleasant with ensuite facilities (something we hadn't paid for) we also had a fan which was very much needed.... More

I have never seem so much incompetence, bad service and disgusting rooms as in Carly. Firstly, we arrive at around 11 pm and we had to wake up all the guest, wake up the owners thrice to finally get a room. In this process we only managed to get into our "room" after 2 and a half hours after arriving... More

Hotel Carly is not a luxe, not trendy fashion or very clean. But... perfect location in San Telmo and really cheap. So... I will suggest to go if you need only a basic bed and you pass the rest of the day outside. If you are e little difficlt with higiene and comfort... it si snot your place!

Yes, this is the cheapest hostel I could find in Bs. Ar. with a single room. However...the showers are as stated above pretty awful, only cold water and sometimes only hot water. The room I had was decent, nice balcony, great view of Plaza Dorrego, but above 2 bars so between them and the plaza bring earplugs if you plan... More

This dark, dirty and creepy so-called hotel is one of the worst places I have stayed at. It was in such a bad shape that it seemed like everything they ever did in the last 20 years was to change the bed linen. The shared bathroom was terrible, no place to hang your towel, you were showering while standing over... More

Stayed there only a half night because we had a flight early in the morning. It was very noisy, dirty and without any charm. Basic stuff is missing, things are broken and not replaced and the host seemed grumpy. For the one night it was acceptable, because of the good location and i guess you dont find a cheaper place...

When we arrived at the hotel the manager/owner? was sitting outside on the stairs smoking. He looked like he hardly wanted to get up to say hello to his new guests. He practically threw a key to us and took us to the room. In the room there where cockroaches all over the place. No towels available and on the... More
