I stayed in this hostel for 4 nights and enjoyed every one of them. Arrived late on check in where I was greeted at the reception desk with staff that were good at English and put me at ease. There is always someone at the desk, 24 hours, who can buzz people in the main door and keep you feeling...

This hostel has so many good memories for me. I stayed here for about 3 weeks over Christmas and New year's 2012 and returned regularly after that. I made so many good friends and will never forget the experience. Sure it is not a 5-star resort but it is a decent hostel with good staff and facilities. If you tell...

We stayed here for a night as a stopover before moving on to the next leg of our trip. The hostel is well-priced given it's excellent location, minutes from the obelisk. We had a private room which was clean and a good size with an overhead fan. The bathroom was also a good size with a reasonable shower. The person...

This place was a great little find., a couple of blocks from the obelisk, but only a ten minute walk to San Telmo and easily accessible to everywhere else. Dorms are basic but clean, there are also individual bathrooms with shower and toilet. Staff are mostly really helpful and friendly. Free wifi is good, there's also a couple of computers....

Right downtown, one block from the obelisk. Good rates, I stayed four nights and they gave me the last one half off, if you stay 7 the last one is free. I don't know if this is all the time, or only a limited time promo. Two kitchens, well stocked. Clean enough, better than other hostels I've stayed in. They...

Good location with good price. I payed 56 ARS per person in 6 bed dorm. Staff is very helpful. The hostel is often chosen by party likers, so it's quite noisy at night. But I really recommand it- NO bed bugs!!

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
