The hostel/hotel is very well located as you are close to Puerto Madero and other attractions from Buenos Aires as Obelisco and Casa Rosada, it is also easy to get to La Boca, Palermo and Recoleta. The environment at the hostel is simply friendly and it has a nice pool and great facilities.

Awesome time in Buenos Aires. I went alone and met great people from all over. My only tiny criticism was the breakfast was way too sweet, some variety would be good. Otherwise a very happy camper and will definitely go again my travels take me to Buenos Aires.

Very cool staffs, comfortable room and it's too nice walk around the hostel, have a lot of things to do! Have a young appearance but can receive a family very well as happened with mine! The breakfast is a little bit poor, but enough!

I only spent a night at the hotel and it's a good place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful and I was able to chill at the hostel until my friend arrived at 9pm. Breakfast is acceptable. It could have been cleaner but all is forgiven when you know that you are within minutes from good restaurants and the...

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.
