Horrible place, very dirty, desk people are very strange, breakfast poor, noisy, dirty bathrooms, filthy mattresses, the block where the hostel is located is very smelly and extremely dirty. The room was very small and they do not like to be told anything if you make a complaint throughout your stay they treat you poorly.

We placed the reservation a couple of weeks in advance, paying for the cancellation fee. When we arrived to the address published the establishment did not have any sing with the name of the Hostal. We had to ring the bell of what appears to be a private house. Once we were in the recepcionist advices our bookins is only...

I stayed in Hostel Tango for a little over 2 weeks in 3 different shared rooms and it was the worst hostel experience I've ever had. The only reason I kept living there was because I thought I had an agreement with the owner, but I don't want to focus on that here. To start off, I'll talk about the...

The team at Hostel Tango truly made a difference to my stay, very friendly, hospitable, and full of suggestions on what to do and where to go in the city. Clean rooms, comfortable reception/lounge area, nice large bathroom areas (these are shared), and most importantly great location (centre of San Telmo). All you really need from a hostel during your...

Only stay if you don't mind being ripped off. The price at booking was not adhered to and we were overcharged by 300 pesos. The owner just makes up her own exchange rate at the time of check out (not the official, or the blue). I have travelled extensively throughout Argentina and never experienced this. In addition the owner is...

Price increased by 20% from agreed price for no reason! Only informed at check-out. Female manager very rude, passive-aggressive and hostile. We have travelled throughout South America for many months and never experienced anything like this. Avoid avoid avoid

Stayed here 2 or 3 days. The bunks sleep good, were common bunk bed. The bathrooms need work. Showers and toilets. The free breakfast was free. Free Wi-Fi in the common room. Not a strong signal. Would stay there if no other place is available.

Made it to this hostel after a friend had already stayed here one night. Was lucky enough to have place, since all other hostels were booked. The place is very well maintained, rooms and bathrooms are being cleaned on a daily basis. There's a kitchen with the basic things you need for cooking, but bring spices. Showers were always warm,...

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.
