It was pretty quiet when I stayed there, but I think usually it'd be a great place to meet people! Energetic, English speaking staff who are always happy to help. Comfortable beds and clean rooms with good wifi. Hot showers as well. The common area is modern and comfortable with a bar, public computers, books, a heated pool, and a... More

We were ready to pay more than the average price for an hostel in buenos aires for the first few days, this is truly a hotel, and we were more than satisfied with the multiple activities Marie organized for us in the hostel; varied and really awesome! (We spent almost all our time in BA in those activities)

Very economically savvy for this on a budget and the amicable staff will provide you great service. Recommend using this location over higher priced hotels where you miss out on the chance to meet great people. Mary was an excellent tour guide and host. We went on an afternoon comic tour, followed by tea time in one of the oldest... More

Had an excellent time with staff and other guests. Very friendly. Lots of activity. The only thing I would recommend is that if the breakfast can contain protein of some sorts but having said that they did offer eggs and meat that you could paid for (was not included as part of hte free breakfast).

We stayed at the hostel for 5 nights while we were getting over our jet lag we spent a lot of time sleeping. The beds really need to be updated, but we enjoyed the common area and the staff was very helpful making recommendations about places to go and things to eat. Good area for a night out with plenty...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
