“Professional, if slightly overpriced”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

In many ways this place is perfect - beautifully decorated, well-designed, clean, professional, and fun to stay in. The quality of rooms is more like a hotel than a hostel, there's an amazing empanada place round the corner and the location in San Telmo is great. I would say, however, that it is rather expensive, and avoid the 'all you can eat' barbecue - a couple of pieces of meat and don't ask for more! Would recommend the On The Road hostel in Palermo above this one, as it has much more character and charm.

I stayed in America del Sur Hostel with my mom and my brother for two nights. This hostel is more like a hotel then a typical hostel. It was a great place to be with my family. Although we did not stay over the weekend so I am not sure how the atmosphere changes when they have their pre-game party. The breakfast is GREAT! Definitely the best breakfast in a hostel I have had in Argentina/Chile/Uruguay. The rooms are very comfortable and there is a lot of places to hangout within the hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hostel to others.

free walking tours and a location with plenty of bars and food options surroundng the hostel make this a good option in San Telmo.

The shared rooms are good value. Large common area for breakfast and relaxing.

The hostel is located in the San Telmo district and is walking distance to many great places to eat and sight see. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful and create a great atmosphere. The rooms all have a bathroom and shower room inside which is very convenient. It's a pretty big place, so you have to be more proactive than usual to meet people. Thursday night's free tango lesson was really fun! The only problem with this place is that it can be pretty loud because most of the rooms are above the courtyard where people hang out and music plays until late in the night. Then again, you are in BsAs, so you should probably be out at a Milonga!

Stayed here for 3 days over Christmas, during which BA is pretty quiet. Hostel was clean and well maintained -- except for the door handle to my 4-bed dorm, which remained broken throughout my stay. Staff very welcoming and offered good suggestions on places to see and eat. Good atmosphere, grill in the courtyard and a well- stocked fridge of Quilmes made this a favorite.
