The hotel was great, it was as it was shown in pictures, the people who work there were nice and kind, and help us with a lot of doubts that we had. Everything was clean, and in the hotel was a nice place with pool, games, and tv. For the other side, we have troubles trying to sleep, because as...

We stayed here after a friend recommended the place and the excellent reviews here on trip advisor. We checked in smoothly and were impressed with the hostel, as it's well presented with modern facilities. We felt comfortable on arrival here. However, the hostel was robbed on our stay and we soon found out that keys to rooms opened other rooms...

Circus is in the heart of a great part of Buenos Aires, there are plenty of little restaurants and bars around and easy access to other parts of the city. The staff are great and were able to help us out with our queries, their English is quite good. Our room was basic but clean, the bed was very comfortable...

Very friendly, smiling and flexible staff. I'm a woman who travelled solo. I felt safe and comfortable at Circus. The place has a good atmosphere. The room, although rather modest in decoration, was clenaned and the bed made everyday. Both the room and the lobby were warm even in the winter. I had reserved only three nights at Circus, but...

We had the most pleasant experience with the receptionist at the Circus Hostel & Hotel. She was the most helpful person ever though unfortunately I've forgotten her name! Please give her a raise in pay!

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.
