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

The Hostel Suites Obelisco is a nice place to stay for few days, the rooms and bathrooms are clean and staff are very kind and helpful. The breakfast is simple but good and the localization is great. There is a wifi free zone, but only in the reception floor, not in the rooms.

Staff were super friendly and welcomed us quickly into the place. There is a great social scene at all hostels in Buenos Aires so they quickly connected us to the upcoming parties. We were quite comfortable in this hostel during our stay. A very close walk to the Obelisco which is good for sightseeing and also as a navigational guide.

Liked: Location is really good, very spacious hostel, and they have a good breakfast! We also got a free upgrade to a double room! Disliked: Kitchen is not equipped, and bathrooms were not very clean.

As mentioned in other reviews the main thing this hostel has going for it is its convenient central location. That's about it. It is an unfriendly place which seems to house a large number of long-term residents rather than backpackers/travellers. The kitchens are poorly equipped with hardly any utensils & the boilers break down frequently so hot water is not... More

Stayed here for one night only given its location near the port and bus terminals. It is perfectly located near the main Avenue, near all the shopping. Reception is a bit standoff-ish, and common areas are spread out making. Did not see any kitchen facilities or cooking essentials, and WiFi only worked in common areas. I stayed in a 6-bed... More

I do concur with some of the negative comments. Good thing is that it is housed in a historic building but the flip side is that common facilities are failing eg toilet. It's door knob fell off the wifi can be quite a pain. Only available in the lounge and not in the room. Trying to get people to socialise... More

The hostel is well located, but accommodations are not good in first floor. One of the bathrooms discharge did not work the other day and did not warm water. There isn't wi-fi in the bedrrom. Worth paying a little more to stay in Florida.
