Wi-fi is spotty & highly lacking but I loved my time there. Good, clean rooms and service is excellent but cell phone reception is nonexistent and the wi-fi is terrible - either fix it or don't state that you have free wifi, complete disservice to your guests. Karo was amazing! I loved her customer service 😊
Really nice place, friendly staff, perfect location.
Great hostel. The room and the common areas were clean and looked well-taken care of. The shower in our room was the best I've had in SA- hot water and strong water pressure. The scene was very social and the atmosphere inviting. Excellent planned activities and events. Helpful staff and nice facilities. My only complaint was that the wifi was very slow most of the day.
Its really good hostel, very nice helpfull staff especially Nico 😃 rooms are very safe and modern with bathroom and toilet. There are elevaitors what is very comfy. The common space and the patio are very nice and make it easy to meet other travelers😝 maybe its not the cheaper but really liked this place 😝 totaly would stay here again !
fantastic time there. apart from meeting amazing people from around the world, the desk staff are amazing. They welcomed me back after Mendoza and that was such a warm welcome, im 56 years old, and they made me feel so welcome amongst mostly twenty and thirty somethings. I am a young 56 and I felt perfectly comfortable joining in with some groups chatting on the terrace. the butchers around the corner provided increadile meat and poultry for cooking dinner,
Really friendly staff and a very clean, comfortable hostel. The breakfast included was OK and I had a problem with my bed that I was kind of annoyed about - the hostel isn't cheap by any means so I thought it could have been better for that. Overall a really nice place though. Late check-in, which was kind of unfortunate.
Average hostel, it was very clean but had very noisy beds, pleasant but not very helpful staff, on one occasion someone else had to let me in as they were sat outside drinking rather than watching reception. Hostel lacked atmosphere.
We had a very bad experience with our baggage. We were a group of 4 friends and imagine that suddenly one of our baggage was stolen from the baggage locker that is controlled by the hostel America del Sur! Hostel staff were the only ones having the key of the storage and you suppose that hostel staff at least should go with the residents to the locker every time they provide the key, but they didn´t. At the end the answer is predictable "hostel is not responsible of what happens to the baggage"

the staff is an absolute dream! So helpful, great ambassadors for the country and for BA. The only improvement commend I'd have is please please get a new stack of towels. They have clearly been in circulation for ages and all have stains that don't seem to wash out, it looks a bit disgusting and takes away a lot from the otherwise spotless impression.
Great staff, great room, great people, great place! You can choose between a relaxed atmosphere and chilled out bbqb or lots of activities like the tours/pub crawls. The beds of the mixed dorm were better than expected.
Absolutely wondeful hostel. The staff in particular are so friendly and helpful, going that extra mile, which is much appreciated. Thanks for a great stay. The only slight downside, is that it was a tiny bit noisy at night, from people downstairs in the courtyard, however this is not a major dealbreaker. I would thoroughly recommend this hostel.

Great location and very sociable hostel. Our private double room was great. Loved the downstairs area to just relax and have a beer. Perfectly situated in the San Telmo area. The staff are all really helpful.
We can't say enough about this place! The staff was fantastic, the breakfast was great, and it's location is excellent. The rooms were clean and there were always activities to do. We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to BA
Awesome hostel, the best of Buenos Aires!

Really enjoyed my stay, breakfast was average but the staff were very helpful, went on one of their free walking tours where I met a lot of other guests and ended up having a lot of fun with them for the rest of my stay and I probably wouldn't have made those connections without the activities organized by the hostel so I very much appreciated that.
This is a very good hostel. The staff are particularly helpful in providing advice on sightseeing and other activities in Buenos Aires.
Good hostel with very helpful staff, very decent breakfast, closer to hotel-style ones than to the ones one can typically expect in hostels. Beds made for you every day! Location is not the greatest - neighbourhood not too pleasant for walking around after dark and not too many restaurants,, cafes, etc that are open till late in the vicinity
I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff can be a little loud at night, but in Argentina that's to be expected! They were extremely helpful with everything I needed and the events/tours offered through the hostel were all great.
tidy hostel in a good location, close to san telmo. they offer a lot of activities such as asado ar bike tours. staff was nice and always eager to help.
Nice, friendly hostel in a decent location with helpful staff. Only downside is the music that plays til quite late and the noise from the back yard carries...no problem if you're a heavy sleeper and great if you're socialising, but not ideal if you have an early start. Overall very good. Recommended!
