We're really enthusiastic about this hostel! The staff immediately took the time to explain everything about the hostel + surroundings + excursions. Very helpful, and they were very open to all our questions. Furthermore the hostel's really nice as well. The common area has a great atmosphere and a fantastic view, the kitchen is well equipped and the beds are...

We stayed here for 7 nights based on good reviews on TripAdvisor. We stayed in a private double room. The hostel is clean and modern with mod-cons in rooms (safe, hairdryer). Room cleaned daily. Bathroom clean with hot water. Only complaint was that the sink was not inside the bathroom but beside the bed. Kitchen is clean but on the...

Well definitely a clean & nice place to get at the price you pay... Staff is helpful so go ahead ask them what you want, don't hesitate. Kitchen is well equipped with some free food left behind by other travelers...(i.e a good tip) but get your own spices & what you want to eat. Found other cheaper places - but...

I stayed here for 1 night before getting a flight. I found the staff uninterested and busy chatting amongst themselves which made it awkward to ask them anything. The 4 bedroom dorm had a bathroom and was fine, nothing special. The atmosphere felt cold, a lot of solo travellers, but no one really talking to each other. It was ideal...

We stayed at this hostel in January and are now here again in March. I have also been to the Millhouse hostel and we decided on America del sur because it is better! Whilst it isn't a 'party' hostel, we definitely had some great parties here. It is really clean and new, the staff are very helpful and the location...

Negative points: unfriendly staff, leaking sink. A friend and I arrived quite late (4-5 AM, Feb 25 2017) and the attendant was sleeping. We manage to wake him up so we could get in the hostel and check in, but he seemed really, really, really pissed off on us. He made us feel very uncomfortable. Gave us no information at...

Nice room, comfy bed, air conditioning, amenities, TV (the fact that the sink is the room rather than in the bathroom is the only negative point here). Common areas at the entrance and at the basement are nicely planned, clean, comfortable and practical so you enjoy spending time there and meet people from all around the world. The receptionists are...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
