“Great hostel”
Reviewed September 11, 2011

Really nice, clean and friendly hostel in San Telmo. The dorm rooms have ensuite bathrooms which is always a plus, and each bed has an individual lamp, which is a godsend in dorms. And the free breakfast is actually really good - medialunas, toast, cereal, cream cheese/jams, juice, coffee and even cakes.

The staff are really helpful and there seems to be a lot going on (we only stayed for one night as we were moving into an apartment in Bs As, but there seemed to be activities and suggestions for every night of the week, as well as tours etc).

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. The place is spotless, the rooms are a decent size and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Wonderful hostel, modern and clean with good facilities. The common areas, especially the chillout room in the basement is both stylish and cozy. The staff is amazing, they make you feel really welcome and are happy to help you with anything you might need. The hostel offers various activities, such as free tours and tango lessons once a week, and it's really easy to get to know people. I used the wifi lot and had no problems. Great location if you want to stay in San Telmo. Bonus points for have homemade cakes for breakfast!

The hostel has five floors that open up so that you can look directly down on the ground floor reception area. It's a nice view, but music and noice from the reception reaches up the the fifth floor. It wasn't too loud, but it does create some noise that might disturb people who have trouble sleeping. Also, the windows faceing the patio (which is amazing, by the way) are more exposed to noice. I'm a heavy sleeper and wasn't bothered by it, but it's good to know.

All in all, a great hostel with friendly staff and good facilites, I would definitively recommend it!

We had a really enjoyable 5 days here. It is a new hostel so it is very modern and clean- a cool building too. The staff go out of their way to help you. We had a bad experience with a taxi driver giving us a fake 100 and they sorted it out straight away. SAn Telmo is a nice area but more seems to be happening in Palemro if you stay there. Would definitely recommend this hostel just for the staff alone!

The America del Sur Hostel is a good place to stay in Buenos Aires. The hotel staff is friendly and efficient, has a good breakfast and the rooms are very clean. The big problem is the connection of Wi-Fi, which does not work inside the rooms. If you need to be connected all the time, you may have problems.

Room Tip: The front rooms are a bit noisy
