Considering the price the room and place in general it's great! The common area it’s beautiful, good Wi-Fi in all the place, staff it’s very helpful, I stayed there in 2010 and I was so happy about the hostel that I came back, but I have to say this time I was a little disappointed with the room. The cleaning...

We definitely enjoyed our stay at the Circus hotel. Clean, friendly, nice vibes. Just one problem: the hotel offered to call a taxi to take us the airport. The cab was completely unmarked and looked quite shady. At the airport the driver asked for more money that the hotel said it would, claiming that the highway tall price was in...

The common area is very nice, with a pool table, wide TV screen, swimming pool and a place to hang out around the swimming pool. We were there in April so we did not try the swimming pool. The staff is nice and ready to help you out with any question you could have. We've found the dorms very tiny...

I've really enjoyed going there for the second time in about a year. Ideal for young travelers, I visited it for the second time in about a year, this year, I asked for two individual beds but I got only one.

Nice place to stay in San Telmo neighborhood. Very pleasant place, very helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms. The breakfast is a Argentinian typical one, some "medialuna de dulce de leche", fresh fruits and great orange juice. If look for not luxury and good hostel, this is your hostel.

I stayed for two nights last March. The hostel has very good location, in the center of San Telmo suburb. Staff friendly & helpful. A lot of young people, that could be a little bit noisy sometimes. Acceptable cleanliness & maintenance. I will probably repeat the next time.

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.
