Republica San Telmo

I stayed five nights here at the end of May 2014. Martin was exceptionally helpful, the hostel is in a great location and it is very secure so I do recommend it. The shower was not terribly hot but I was not sufficiently motivated to tell Martin, had I done so I have no doubt he would have attended to it immediately.

Staid 3 nights and everything worked nicely. Nice 5th floor flat with own balcony and bath. :) Easy, safe location and only positive things to say... :) They arranged football tickets when asked and got plenty of suggestions of what to do in BSAS.

We booked in here initially for a couple of nights and liked it so much we decided to extend our stay. David, who was really helpful from the start (great pre arrival directional email and initial orientation of the city) until after we checked out, went out of his way to move somethings around so that stay longer. We had a lovely room with a nice balcony and air con. The location is great, there are loads of cool and funky places to eat, drink and shop within a 5 or 10 minute walk. We walked to and from the city centre most days as well, though that might be for the keener walker (like 40 minutes). It is also really close to the metro (its on the same line as the main bus station). Everything was very clean, the atmosphere was super chilled out and there was cereal, nice coffee, juice and a small selection of breads for breakfast. All in all, we can highly recommend this place.

This beautiful colonial home was a peaceful stay. High ceilings and an "old-world" feel, my room was a sanctuary in an old barrio that is my favorite in all of Buenos Aires. David was so helpful in showing me the "must-see" areas to visit and was a wonderful host! This hotel is a lovely option for your stay in BA, as it is close to the "soul" of Argentina- truly a home away from home!

Very helpful staff!!!! Agustin helped to plan and book tours during our stay. Perfect suggestions for tango show and football game at good price. Clean shared bathroom and since only 4 rooms in this place, it gave a cozy feeling when meeting others during breakfast time. There are plenty of restaurants choices just one block away. It is convenient to walk around the area and very easy accessible to must see areas around.
