This is an excellent hostel. It has a very central location, the girls at the front desk are extremely helpful, the Friday night BBQ dinner is tasty/a great way to meet people, breakfasts are simple but decent, and the rooms/showers/toilets are clean. It feels very much like a hotel for backpackers!

This hostel really knows its stuff. Its really more of a really nice boutique hotel which also happens to organise great activities, have a really nice breakfast and friendly staff. Our room was gorgeous, we had a private room with our own bathroom and it was way nicer than even some hotels we have stayed at. The location is good, San Telmo has a fun nightlife and easy to get around to other parts of the city. Would highly recommend!

We really liked this hostel. However security was an issue. .. we had a visitor a 5, 30am. Supposedly it was the security man ... regardless im never comfortable with strange men walking into my room at the middle of the night

Aisling thanks a lot for giving us a review, they are really important for us :) Regarding the 5.30 am visitor, he was the guy doing the night shift, he entered the room cause he was looking for someone staying on the same room that you guys were.

A great place to stay at, the staff were extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat and what to do. Atmosphere at the hostel was great - there is an open communal area next to reception and an outside area where people tended to have drinks after dinner, get together and then go out. The hostel hosts many great social activities as well such as tango lessons, BBQ, etc. The location is good for food, sights, and is a trendy neighborhood, however it is not the club/bar area of BA.

Travelled all over Brazil and Buenos Aires was my last stop. America del Sur was definitely one of the nicest hostels I stayed at during my trip. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Nice common room in basement with 3 computers, even have wheelchair accessibility. Lots of things to do (walking tours offered). Dorm rooms have their own washroom and shower! Breakfast is meager (bread, cereal, juice) but who cares, food is so cheap so go out to eat. Check out San Telmo Market on Sundays!

I suggest that the hostel establish a quiet time because it was hard to sleep the first few nights with noise in lounge.

This was my first hostel experience and it was very positive! I was traveling with my 22 year old daughter. I was concerned I would be the only "old" person in the place. There were a few of us. Daphney, Mary and Carolina were so very helpful with our excursion traveling. Mary remembered my name and Daphney let me try her mate. Fresh flowers on the breakfast tables. Rooms were very clean. There was a safe in the room as well. We were on the 5th floor and it was very quiet. Highly rec!

Its one of the best hostels I have stayed at all over the world and definitely the best in South America. The rooms and facilities where of a hotel standard and the common areas are fantastic. The BBQ on Friday night was a fantastic feed and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

excellent hostel, this hostel is clean, modern, safe, comparable to modern places like Milhouse but has friendlier and more helpful staff and has WiFi albeit intermittent in the rooms. the hostel is still quite social but does not always party 24/7 which is a good thing! The location is a little further south than the main Centre but walking distances to major attractions and places of interest is not a problem. san Telmo is a nice area anyway. had lots of fun there, the staff are awesome!!!!

The staff were very welcoming and helpful in America del Sur. I also did a walking tour and our guide was lovely. As the hostel is big, it is sometimes hard to meet other travellers, however, the walking tours do help. Rooms are modern and clean. Breakfast is very good.
