Stayed for 8 days here in a private room on the top floor. Room was good. Wifi signal was very weak on the top floor and generally wifi was very unstable throughout the hostel. Positive was the reception staff who spoke english (most of them) and were very helpful. Negative was common areas. Bathrooms very worn down and not very... More

Standard avarage - dark room, poor breakfast, old shower but from the other side no problem with hot water. Good localization in San Telmo. The biggest problem - prices! On the page of hihostel 400ARS for 4 people room - they charged 600ARS and couldn't explain why. Next days should have been for 280ARS for doubleroom but they've changed to... More

Great hostel very well located, good breakfast and awesome staff. You are closed to all important areas and transportation. Staff is very helpful and the hostel is very clean thanks to Isabelle, the best woman in Argentina.Romain

Located in San Telmo, The Hostel Inn is easily the best hostel in Buenos Aires, at least for me. I visited Argentina in 2012 and 2013 with some friends and stayed there both times. By booking it in advance we got a discount on the price which was great. Upon arriving, the staff made sure we were ok and assured... More

Great location and really friendly helpful staff. However, just some constructive feedback... Only the fires of Mordor can cleanse those pillows! Burn them! Also, it seems the sheets have never met bleach, you should introduce the two. Faded red stains on bedding is never pleasant. In all seriousness though, if the bedding was replaced it would be a good value... More

Rooms are good, very clean and the female staff are very helpful. Hot water in showers. Breakfast standard hostel breakfast. Excellent location. However, kitchen is tiny and difficult to cook in! Also, if you are looking for an atmosphere where you meet people and have easy going chats, then avoid this place. If you like all hostel staff to smile,... More

As other reviews stated the location of this hostel is amazing. At the intersection of 9 de Julio and De Mayo you have so many neighborhoods and buses right outside the door. It's a 10 minute walk to the San Teelmo market, 30 minute walk to Palermo and Recoleta neighborhoods, a 10 minute subway ride and a 1 hour train... More

Hostel Inn has a perfect location in the San Telmo neighborhood. It's safe, and close to the Sunday San Telmo market, the metro and lots of restaurants. The hostel itself has one of the best free breakfasts out of any hostel I've been to in South America as well as computers for internet, a kitchen to cook in and lots... More

I loved Hostel Inn! It's in a great spot, close to everything you could want, like La Boca and Plaza Dorrego and the center, all are close and easy to walk to. It's also a great mix of fun people and staff who want to party and explore the city, while having quiet rooms where you can escape the chaos... More
