All perfect, we stayed in a 4 bed dorm and all was nice. The only small detail that you could take care of is the electric plug, i saw many in argentina that was modified to make them cool for eu plugs. Still you sold us an adaptor for a nice price so thats ok.

Really appreciated how nice the staff where particularly Maria who was always keen to make conversation and ensure we were enjoying our stay. My only con for staying here is that the beds were quite comfortable but then again it was... More

We booked four nights but ended up staying five, we would have stayed longer had we had the time. The staff were great and really helpful with bus numbers, train stops and places to visit. There was an Olympic opening night BBQ when we arrived and payment by donation ( be generous as Mary works her socks off) Loads of... More

Despite a grubby, neglected toilet, and a roommate that snored like a heifer giving birth, the beds were exceptionally comfortable, and the staff very friendly. They helped us out track down some local culture over Independence Day weekend, and put us on to a well-kept secret about scoring early-bird rates at some top restaurants that don't advertise 40% off your...

Definitely the best hostel in Buenos Aires and reasonably priced to boot. The room was extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and tastey. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help you with any issue, advise you on fun activities and places to eat, provide coupons and deals, and host their own... More

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

I had no doubts about this place from the moment that I walked in the door. I actually felt at home at Circus Hostel. They will take good care of you. This was the best hostel experience I ever had.

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.
