Whilst the hostel is clean and the staff are nice, it doesn't take away from the fact that they let two local men into the Hostel and my ENTIRE RUCKSACK WAS STOLEN FROM MY BED! Then walked out pasted the girl on reception!! The hostel offered no compensation and the bewildered staff gave a flimsy apology at the time. The... More

It is located right next to a couple of bars and restaurants in the middle of San Telmo. Has a lovely terasse to hang out with hammocks, which is lovely during summer. Breakfast is included and good. Though the 10-bed-dormitory I stayed in was pretty full, because the average backpack wouldn't fit into the locker, so there was lots of... More

STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSTAL! IT IS NOT SAFE ESPECIALLY FOR GIRLS AND WHEN A GIRL IS ASSAULTED MANAGEMENT WILL DEFEND THE ASSAILANT AND NOT THE VICTIM. My daughter stayed here the other night and was assaulted by one of the long-term residents of this hostel. Management would not evict him and my daughter was left to find another place... More

The location of this hostel is perfect. Plaza Dorego and Plaza 25 de Mayo are within walking distance. The San Telmo sunday market is around the corner. Rooms here are quite spacious and cleanliness is okay. Breakfast is included. All the other things of this hostel are average, at most. It is very noisy. There is stated that it's prohibited... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location, walk to lots of sights and restaurants. Breakfast was pretty good. Our room was good but I think I would have preferred one upstairs as downstairs was a bit hot and stuffy. Great rooftop terrace.

We were wandering bed-less in Buenos Aires one night having just arrived from Uruguay, and were lucky enough to be pointed in the direction of this hostel - we loved it! Most of the staff were incredibly friendly and so helpful, Guido even gave us a lift out to Olivos one evening in his car, guided tour all the way,... More

I recently spent 5 nights at Tercero del Sur where I was welcomed by friendly and helpful reception staff. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I loved the fact that there were 2, well-stocked kitchens. (I never had any problems sleeping even though i was staying close to one of the kitchens).There is also a rooftop terrace which is great...

The rooms are very basic and not very comfortable,don't be fooled by the online pictures. Majority of the rooms are near kitchen so forget about decent sleep. The beds were very uncomfortable and one had a broken leg so we propped it up with our bags. Both nights we stayed there, other guests were crashing pots and pans in the... More

We had a reservation here for a few nights and we were very enthousiastic when we arrived. The girl from the desk who welcomed us was very friendly and helpful, as it should be. She provides us with a map and lots of informations. Our room room wasn't the cleanest, but that had more to do with our dirty roomies... More

Great location, good security, clean rooms in old part of town. Clean and well managed with English speaking helpful staff. Old building so even though guests are not party-time, the rooms open to common areas so if you sleep lightly and go to bed early you might need ear plugs - not bad though!
