Hostelworld says:

Hostelworld guests voted America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires the best in Argentina and Latin America at the 2011 Hoscars. This hostel is located in the beautiful San Telmo area, a short walk from Casa Rosada, Plaza de Mayo, Calle Florida and much more. Travellers tell us the staff are 'enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and competent', while the hostel itself is 'very chilled out if you want it to be, but also can party a lot, too'. We like that all their rooms are low capacity and ensuite.

Hostelworld users rated us the Best Hostel in Latin America at the 2011 & 2012 Hoscars!

If you’re looking for a modern place with a relaxed atmosphere and welcoming staff...you should experience America del Sur Buenos Aires!

Our hostel opened in December 2008. It was built from scratch to fulfil backpackers’ needs while offering modern decor and high-comfort accommodation. We’re in the famous San Telmo district. This is one of the oldest districts in the city and is within walking distance of Plaza de Mayo, 9 de Julio Avenue, Puerto Madero and Plaza Dorrego. The metro station and buses are also nearby, so you can go everywhere easily.

We have a wide range of private rooms, with doubles, singles and twin bedrooms as well as triples and quadruples. We also offer four-person shared dorms. Both the shared and the private rooms have private bathrooms, individual air conditioning units and a hairdryer. Double rooms also have cable TV, telephone and safety boxes. Dorms have individual lockers.

We also have wheelchair accessible rooms and two elevators.

Shower and toilets are in different compartments so two people can use them at the same time. Towels are provided at no extra charge for all rooms.

We have a great TV room with DVDs, an amazing open area for BBQs, free Internet access on three shared computers and a free Wi-Fi signal in all rooms and common areas.

Would you like to reserve any excursion or bus? Or watch and feel an amazing Boca Juniors Football Match? Or find out about the best parties and restaurants in town? Our staff will help you on bookings and advice to make the most of your time in Buenos Aires!

You will be invited to free walking tours around the most important neighbourhoods and we’ll offer you VIP passes for the best clubs.

We look forward to see you soon among our guests!

  • America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires says

    There's a lot going on at our hostel to keep guests busy and happy. In addition to our free walking tours and Wi-Fi, we offer free tango lessons, BBQs every Friday and free tickets for a lot of parties.
    Our new building was purpose-built to suit a hostel and we think it's a lot like a hotel with hostel service and shared rooms. There's a maximum of only four beds in the dorms, with excellent cleanliness and daily cleaning.
    We're just 10 minutes' walk from Plaza Dorrego and Puerto Madero, 20 minutes from Plaza de Mayo and Congress, and only three minutes' walk from Avenida 9 de Julio. The one local place that I really recommend guests visit is the Casa Rosada, only 20 minutes' walk away.
    The main age group of our guests ranges from 18 to 45 years of age. We have all facilities prepared for people with a wheelchair - there's two modern elevators going to each floor and a room built to fulfil all needs to persons travelling with disabilities.

    This is by far the nicest hostel I've stayed at. It comes off as more hotel than hostel, but with ample space for communing with the other guests. The main floor has plenty of tables and there is a nice outdoor patio area with tables and a fire pit (where they prepare the thursday night bbq!!). They have regular tours (free and paid) and they book other tours and travel arrangements. The rooms have really nice bathrooms and hot showers. I give it an A!
