Hostel Colonial, which was among the first backpacker hostels in Buenos Aires is still going strong. With a new management team and solely international receptionists, we are working hard to keep our guests happy. Recently the hostel went through major changes, and now the hostel is starting to take a new shape. Besides a great location, our main strength is the service. We are aiming to treat every guest like a family member.Best wishes from the management team!

This one is in the heart of Buenos Aires, you can easily go to bars, malls, and stores around the area. The room was good but not great. The bed was noisy and kinda old, but the bathroom was clean and roomy. The commum areas were very equipped and pretty, with a lot of usefull tools. About the staff, they were friendly and helpfull with all our needs.

After a long trip in Uruguay staying in shared rooms, I decided to stay in a single room so I could rest a bit. But the room I stayed in was very very noisy, since the hostel is right in front of a busy street, it was very hard to sleep. It has a big window with a view which is nice, but the curtain was white, so the room was very bright all day. The pillows were the worst, not clean. The bathroom needed a good cleaning, at least the shower was very hot and good water flow. The wifi in the room was very bad, kept losing connection, it worked very well in the common areas though. Also, they don't accept Visa card, only mastercard, which was a surprise and made me have to run to a bank to withdraw money. No laundry service in the hostel, but I found two nearby. Breakfast has limited bread and NO butter. There were some positive things too: Friendly and helpful staff, central location, walking distance to most tourist attractions, and close to two different subte lines, making easier to go to more distant places like Palermo and Recoleta. Lots of restaurantes, supermarkets, banks nearby

This was one of my favorite hostels I stayed in, relaxed atmosphere, very friendly, excellent service, excellent location, affordable, etc. The breakfast is very nice with coffee and some hot medialunas and dulce de leche, so you can desayunar like a true Argentinian. The beds are very comfy and nice, and honestly some of the best sleep you can get if you're a backpacker. Excellent wi-fi connection, even in the rooms. Great vibe, lots of cool people from around the world, very social but not really a party hostel. The best part is that the staff there really makes you feel at home even if you're there for one or two days, they're very helpful too. The one downside to the hostel is that they have no one working the front desk between 1am and 8am, and no one to let people in, so if you stay out too late on a boliche...you're on your own. Aside from that, this is the hostel I will recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Buenos Aires.

My stay in the Hostel Colonial was just perfect! Everybody was super friendly and i met a lot of cool people who made my trip even better. The Hostel is extremely clean, cosy and made out of pure love. It really felt like home! The location could not be better as well! In walking distance you have the most important places for sightseeing, shopping and partying. I had the time of my life in this hostel and i am already looking forward to go back to this amazing place!!
