Pretty basic. Nice community/lounge area with lots of tables, couches, and a TV. The owner made a huge batch of popcorn to have during the futbol game on our first night there. The wifi only works in the main area, not in the rooms. The breakfast is the same every day, milk, cereal, juice, rolls, and either a fruit. Buy... More

This hostel is located close to a metro station and lots of theaters, and a 15 minute walk from Puerto Madero, La Casa Rosada, and the new Kirchner Cultural Center. It is not quiet if you have a street-facing room due to traffic, construction and protests nearby. The staff is very nice and sociable. This is a great hostel for... More

Two words: BED BUGS! Apparently the management knows about it but they refuse to do something to fix the problem; the staff is instructed to lie about it, too. Location is central and good if you're into touristy stuff, but I'd highly advise you to look for another place that's less ugly and not inhabited by BED BUGS!

Obelisco Hostel has the best location in town. It is really close to metro stations, restaurants, parcs and historical monuments. Otherwise, the bathrooms are small and not really clean. The beds were a bit discusting : old sheets, old mattress, not confortable. But the breakfast were among the best we have eaten during the trip.

I think Hostel Suites Obelisco is a great hostel on a magnificent location. It's located on one of the busiest streets of Buenos Aires, so you'll feel very safe at night. Furthermore, the service is excellent: all you gotta do is ask. There are kitchens and bathrooms everywhere, so you can always make some food or take a shower without... More

This hostel is right on the main avenue of the city. The price for a private room was also reasonable. The breakfast is basic but that is standard for all of Argentina. The obelisk is walkable from here as is Florida street if you need to exchange money. There are metro station near the hostel which is good if you... More

I stayed in the suite which felt far from being in a hostel but even better than some 3 start hotels I have stayed in before. Housekeepers were very friendly and always asked me if I need anymore towels etc. Reception staff were exceptional too One thing I did not appreciate because it feels out of place were the families...

Really good hostel, with nice people working there. They gave me a lot of good advices on what to do, where to buy cheap food. I booked a room in the women "dormitorio", I recommend it, safe and clean. Don't forget your locker to storage your bag during visit.

Stayed here for one night upon arrival in BA. The hostel is secure with 2 locked gates, it's an older building with a cool old elevator and several floors of rooms. There is a sitting area big enough for everyone and a little balcony that can't be sit on though. It's right on Avenida Corrientes, a big shopping street and... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
