This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The rooms are clean and modern, with big lockers and separate toilet from the shower which was great for a dorm room. The breakfast was big for a hostel and the kitchen nice but lacking a few cooking utensils. The staff was really helpful with things to do. The hangout spaces are awesome, from the tables on the first floor to the downstairs couch. I met some of the best people on my trip here. I would happily spend more time here.

America del Sur offers a different experience from most hostels; it is very clean and well organized. Although the hostel offers many activities, people don't really interact a lot (and many don't even wash their dishes...), so it makes you feel like you're staying in a very good and cheap hotel. Since we went as a couple with little money, we loved it. America del Sur is close to nearly everything and has access to everything else. If you want to visit and know BsAs, I'd recommend it!

A good clean safe party hostel for travellers in their 20's However its a bit too 'Good MOOOOORRRRNING BA!' for anyone who likes sleeping between the hours of 7am and 4am!

I had a great time at America del Sur. It's more social than many people let on in the reviews. I met a ton of cool people, mostly in their 20s and 30s. People enjoy partying here, but it was easy enough to get sleep when necessary. There's a great supermarket across the street where you can buy groceries and beer for half the price that the hostel sells it, and they're fine with you bringing it in. My only complaint is that most of the amenities are fairly small.

Nice hostel, they at least try to organize activities with the guests. The dorms have only 4 beds, each one has a bathroom, thus they are good to sleep and you dont have to wait for too long to use a bathroom

The staff were extremely helpful towards us, it was almost like being at a hotel. The rooms were cleaned daily and were very comfortable. I don't think I have much bad to say about it really. A pleasant stay in all

The staff were wonderful and breakfast was good. It would be good if they had more group activities and encouraged more mingling though since the lobby was always full of guests glued to their phones and not socializing. Also I saw a cleaning lady clean the inside of the toilet bowl with a towel, then use that same towel to wipe down the counter and other spaces which is pretty gross.

Great hostel with friendly and knowledgeable staff. Unfortunately, WIFI almost never works in the rooms and there is no locks on the bathroom and toilet door in the dorm.

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, clean and tidied up by maid daily, located in San Telmo conveniently not far from several interesting spots. Comfy bunk beds, good showers. Cons: Rooms facing the courtyard in the back get a lot of noise echoing up from the common area below and won't get quiet until about midnight. Still, would stay there again.

The girls in the reception were very kind and helpful, specially Daphne and Tati. It was the second time instated there and I'll probably come back. Would be nice if they expand this chain around South America!

Best hostel I stayed in during my entire South American trip! The hostel decor and cleanliness etc is lovely! The staff on the desk are so helpful, they give great advice and got us a super deal on a tango show! There are great activities each day which give you an opportunity to get to know other people staying there as well as the city and this really creates a great atmosphere! The free walking tours are very good as are the bike company that they use for the bike tours!Would recommend to all

Absolutely brilliant!! Very well organized and the staff were very helpful and kind!! I slept in a 4 bedroom dorm. Each roommate gets a digital room key (on top of a locker) so the safety of personal items is max! Turn-down service everyday, very clean. Enjoyed my stay! Met a lot of nice people!! Highly recommended!!
