The hostel was decorated very nicely, it was very clean and the common area was really nice. There was no sound on the tv and you had to be buzzed into the stairway to the rooms, the staff were usually pretty fast doing this. Unfortunately it's a bit of a trek to the top floor, but the view from the...

We stayed in a double room, which was over the road from the main hostel - set in a nice clean modern setting, complete with shared terrace overlooking the street. At first we thought it would be a pain to cross the street to use the kitchen for cooking, but it's less than 2 minutes walk... and the benefits of...

We initially stayed in the dorm rooms which were good - our room had a toilet/ shower which was handy. We thought the dorm rooms were really good value. We then moved to the private rooms across the road- they were new and nice with beautiful and modern shared bathrooms - this was also really good value compared to a...

We stayed for a few nights in June 2009. We had a double room shared bathroom for ARG 130 per night. As in the other reviews we were in the house/annex across the road. Rooms and bathrooms very clean. The breakfast wasn`t fantastic, cereal, breadrolls, jam, butter, tea & coffee, but it fine for us and kept us going for...

Not the cheapest of places but this is to be expected in a capital city. The private rooms in the annexe where I stayed are well kept and clean (although I got the impression that things in the main part of the building were a bit slapdash). Nicely situated in the barrio of San Telmo, with two cheap restaurants nearby---one...

We asked for a room with bathroom and were shown across the road to a newly renovated minimalist haven. The room was fantastic and bathroom better than ours at home! Brilliant location - loved staying here - we would strongly recommend.

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.
