I chose this place because I'd stayed here 3 years ago and had fond memories.

It seemed though that the clientel had changed a bit. It was less backpacker and more local (Argentine) families and a roudy school group the day I arrived. The guard actually blocked me from entering and questioned if I'd got the wrong place (he assumed I'd made a mistake and was staying at Millhouse Hostel down the road).

The dorm was ok. 4 beds with individual lockers (bring your own padlock). Pretty noisey as it faced the street. There's an antique lift (elevator) which requires you to close the doors when you exit. A lot of the time people didn't close them properly and a loud annoying alarm would go off until somebody came along and corrected the situation. The cleaners came in each day, made the bed and left a little bar of soap which was a nice touch.

The shared bathroom was clean enough but the toilet doors were too close to the toilet which made for a cramped visit.

The desk staff were not very friendly. Something that had changed since my last visit. They seemed a lot friendlier in the emails they wrote me confirming the reservation.

The price (45 pesos for a dorm bed) includes breakfast (2 medialunas, artificial juice and coffee). This is served from the 'bar/restaurant' which seemed to be open for about 3 hours for lunch on weekdays and that was it.

Overall if you are looking for a functional, reasonably priced place to stay this will do fine. But if you want friendly staff and a social atmosphere go down the road a few doors to Millhouse (that's what I'm going to do when I return to B.A, I went to check it out during my stay at Sudamerika).

Awfully noisy street, didn't sleep a wink on the first night. Got a room in the back, everything was fine. If travelling with family, get rooms on the 3rd or 4th floors. Breakfast is coffee, milk, horribly artificial orange juice and medialunas. It does the job, though. Mattresses OK, wide variety of cable channels, excellent wifi connection. Two subway stations within a block away; a block away from Av 9 de Julio. The immediate surroundings of the hotel will give you a scary impression, but go up or down a couple of blocks and you'll see stores, good restaurants, charming spots. Staff is ok, helped me when I needed, but there's no phone in the rooms, so you have to go all the way down whenever you need anything.

Well, I love hostels. The atmosphere is amazing, you meet people from all over the world. This is no different in Sudamerika. You'll meet many Brazilians, British, Israeli, Chileans, Spanish, Peruvians, Americans...

Sudamerika have some strong points, starting with its location. It is in the heart of downtown Buenos Aires, close to the famous Obelico, the Casa Rosada and the National Congress. You have one subway (the "Subte" as they say) station. Even considering low taxi rides, you should really take the Subte. Apart from environmental concerns, a ticket costs a quarter dollar!

The hostel is inside one old neoclassical building - and you can see it is really old. The guys on the front desk are really nice, but a creppy woman who owns the cafeteria makes your life hell during breakfast (coffee, milk, butter, 2 medialunas). Anyway, there is a bakery down the corner.

There is free wi-fi connection, but it does not reach top floors - so, if you really need non-stop connection, try to take a room on the first floor. On the other hand, top floors are a little distant from smokers on the lobby. Usually there is noise until 2 a.m. and internal rooms are REALLY hot. The one I took had no AC, so it was almost traumatic. Private rooms have private bathrooms, but they are TINY.

It wasn't terrible staying in Sudamerka, especially considering its rates. But I'll choose other hostel the next time I go to Buenos Aires.
