The Hostel-Inn Buenos Aires
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Nice enough place, staff were great, room was a good size location right in San Telmo. Have to say its noisy but, super noisy. Wooden floors throughout, and the common areas aren't really separate from the rooms so it's noisy. Door slamming seems to go on all night and then begins at 6am. With loud conversations and all the rest. Besides the noise, all good, enjoyed the breakfast.

The hotel is nicely located in San Telmo, close to the metro and a few blocks from Plaza Dorrego. It's an old house which causes the hotel to be extremely noisy. It surprises me this isn't mentioned in many other reviews. You can hear people talk, screaming, have sex, cleaning, everything. During the night it's quite quiet but the noise in the morning starts around 7-7.30. The shared bathrooms could be cleaner and the toilets don't seem to flush easily, as people had left their turds without flushing. We found a lot of them.

The wifi is okay and there are two computers you can make use of. The breakfast is fine too, although the utensils are mostly dirty. The staff is very friendly and you can make use of the hostel facilities after checking out. There is also a free luggage storage room.

We paid 110 per person, per night for a matrimonial room with shared bathroom, pre booked.

I LOVED my stay at the hostel, will definitely be a repeat customer. The staff was friendly and really helpful with my travel plans (bookings and stuff), place was clean and there was a GREAT breakfast (different options). Its really close to all the touristy spots & easy travel (buses and subway near by). I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay in Buenos Aires.

I stayed in the Hostel Inn for 5 nights in a female dorm and overall I enjoyed my stay. The staff at the front desk are very freindly and helpful, they called the port for me when I had an issue with my ferry ticket which I really appreciated. The bathrooms are cleaned every day and the breakfast is basic but fine. The free wi-fi mostly works perfectly and the guest computers are also very good. I felt very safe, like I knew most of the staff and guests. The room had a lot of noise from the busy street below which sometimes made it difficult to sleep. Being a young solo traveller, I would have preferred a few more organised activities and a better common area to meet people in. I would recommend this to travellers looking for a quiet, friendly hotel in San Telmo.

Room Tip: Choose a room that does not face directly onto the busy road at the front

Great overall hostel in the historic San Telmo area, 5 minutes from the subway with a friendly hostel vibe though more low key than the big partying Buenos Aires hostels (a great thing in my opinion). The building is pretty cool with high ceilings and old molding. Everyone working is very friendly, english and spanish speaking and super helpful with instructions, suggestions, and travel tips. Breakfast is pretty lean, but good enough (bread and jam, something extra, super strong coffee).

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are pretty bad - room 5 is hot and stuffy in the summer and opens out to th...
