Last night I needed a hostel quickly without any background research and I rang and they had a bed for 45pesos, within the typical range for the San Telmo area.

Place was shabby, dimly lit and dirty looking, beds and sheeting are old, blankets look like they haven't been washed, my first bed consisted of two worn saggy mattresses. Then the regulars came in and out of the first room I was in to store their personal stuff. So it clicks, this isn't a tourist hostel, it's a hostal.

I am though very very grateful to a man in the hostal who found my camera that I left behind in the first room I was in.

So do not consider this hostal as a cute touristy hostel, it is not. But for their asking rate this place is way overpriced, 15 pesos a night would be appropriate.

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.
