Warm hospitality! Perfect assistance in planning your trip. Young and enthusiastic team. Very comfortable rooms and common space designed to Excellent. There is excessive use of air freshener and this is the only drawback ..
Highly recommended for adults and young people

We went in September 2012 to vacations. Staff was very nice.
Great location, San Telmo. Rooms are clean. Bathrooms is clean too.
They have activities every days. Only problem was my bedroom smelled cigarrete. AT night is so noisy if you room is in front of street.

My sister and I travelled around South America and spent the first two weeks of our trip here.
The hostel is pretty clean and very secure (all rooms have lockers (bring your own lock) and the main door is always locked). The rooms are smaller and more private than some other hostels that offer 10 or 30 person dorms, so it's much more of a hotel than a hostel. If you're looking to meet a lot of new people then maybe this isn't your place. But, if you're looking for a cozy place to sleep (it does get loud sometimes, bring earplugs), and helpful staff that will help you find your way around the lovely city of Buenos Aires (most or all of whom speak really good english) and especially San Telmo, the area in this city that it's located, then this hostel might suit you.
Oh, and also, the kitchen is poorly stocked, but it's not that big of an issue, it just seems like most of us budget travelers are too cheap to buy and donate salt and pepper or cooking oils to the hostel. But it's located right across the way from a small grocery store so don't worry too much on that!
Overall a nice place to start our trip. It was our first time experiencing such a different culture from our own and we felt super comforable here. Be sure to check out the San Telmo market on Sundays and have a fun and safe trip!

Really good location in San Telmo, and a 10/15 minute walk into the city centre, I loved the America del Sur - and statyed here a full week in total. Started off in a twin private room, which had all the amenities you could want - including a tv! Then moved into a 4 bed dorm which was very spacious and again, had everything you could want. The staff couldn't have been more helpful during our stay helping us with all our coach bookings as we moved on and helping us with how to get to other places within BA - they really added to our positive experience of this great city. The outdoor area is also great for some relaxing in the evening, and the all you can BBQ is amazing!

I went on a business trip to Buenos Aires in August 2012, and found the América del Sur to be an excellent place to stay both for leisure and business purposes. The place is highly recommendable for low- and mid-budget travellers. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, they organize lots of activities and try to help you out to the best of their abilities with whichever problem you might have. The rooms are of good quality, especially considering the fact that it´s a hostel, with tv´s and private bathrooms for those who don´t mind spending a little bit more. What distinguishes them most from other places in the same category is the lobby: it´s spaceous, well-lit and a good place to meet other travellers and work. The general atmosphere is friendly and relaxed.

A few minor things to take into account: drainage system for both showers and toilets is a little faulty sometimes, which can cause minor inconvenience, and the wireless internet in the rooms is not very quick and has the tendency to drop. The staff however, is quick to solve any problems.

Room Tip: If your room is on the first or second floor, you´ll have better wifi connection.

Stayed for 4 nights in a double. No complaints with room, really comfy bed, clean, security box and hot & powerful shower, always a plus! Location is good in san Telmo, close enough to walk to the microcentro, subway close, lots of buses if you can figure them out! The double was a bit pricier than some other hostels in the area but it was good quality, and was well sound proofed from internal noise at least. Bit noisy from the street but not too bad.
