Excellent hostel, staff very friendly and the most helpful we have ever met, great breakfast, and huge selection of activities (especially recommend the history tour) most of which are free. Stay here!
Quite Commercial! Small kitchen. But: rooms with aircon, 4 beds, toilet, shower. Hostel got robbed during my visit but I felt quite safe. Staff ist really friendly, but again the hostel is commercial and they advise expensive tours rather than cheap alternatives.
Great hostel with nice bedrooms. But: it's quite commercial and you have the feeling that the staff's advices are sometimes money-driven. Hostel got robbed during my visit. The common area is nice but not a unique meeting point for backpackers.
Stayed here for 5 nights and thought the place was excellent. There are some nice restaurants and bars in the area and it is close to Independencia subway station so it is easy to get to downtown. All the staff are really friendly and helpful, the beds are comfy and the place is really clean, excellent breakfast too. The kitchen is quite small but I didn't really see this cause a problem while I was staying there.
The hostel is okay, especially if you want to stay in San Telmo, however I think it is a bit pricey.
We stayed at the Hostel for the final days of our SA trip before heading to Europe, and thank God for that, because two of us got such an allergic reaction/rush (our guess from the bed sheets), that we are still suffering from it. The location is in San Telmo, and it may sound great at first, but its in a shady part of it. We felt secure to take only taxis exactly from and to the door of the Hostel, especially after sunset. The WiFi connection was extremely bad either. Please choose a different
Everything about this hostel was brilliant. Highly recommended. My only problem was the feeling of personal security when travelling the streets of BsAs, but that's not the hostel's fault.
The most helpful hostel staff I have ever experienced. Organized events, big common area, insuite bathrooms, beds made daily, and of course the staff make America Del Sur a great choice if you are coming to BsAs
Amazing staff, very helpful. Great hostel vibes and areas to hang out and meet fellow travelers.
This place was ok however the internet didn't work in our room for the majority of the 5 days we were there and when it did work it was very slow so made it difficult to plan our ongoing travel. If you require a good internet connection in your room I wouldn't recommend staying here.
Very nice staff that recomended and helped with the tours. Good breakfast! Good rooms and very clean! =)
This is a great Hostel. The main area on the first floor is a great meeting place and downstairs the computer/TV room is also a nice common area. The hostel has a great vibe and it's very easy to meet people there. The staff is incredible. They all speak great English and are extremely helpful. I highly recommend this hostel
Not a true hostel but more a budget hotel. 5 floors of rooms, air conditioned, with ensuite bathroom and shower. Kitchen incredibly small for the capacity, not a lot of traveller atmosphere when we stayed over Christmas, better off going to a more 'character' hostel. Staff generally happy and helpful, TV room, computers and wifi all excellent.
A dissappointing stay. Had some issues with the air conditioning dripping continously through out the night. My experience with staff could have been better however they did go to the effort to checkin once I checked out to talk about what happened. Found the atmosphere a little sterile
This is a great place to stay. Safe, fun, with an amazing staff that will go out of their way to help out travelers. A welcome breakfast and full kitchen are an added bonus. The only, small issue, is perhaps the key\card system which is difficult to use and might be a cause for concern in case of an emergency. (fire etc..)
good hostel with great facilities (showers, breakfast,...) but lack of atmosphere and the staff is not really interested in making you feel welcome.
Quite a big hostel but nevertheless a good atmosphere and a very good place to stay in San Telmo. Good activities. Facilities were modern and clean. Kitchen maybe a little small for so many people, but a lot of good options to eat out. Breakfast was tasty and very good. Staff was nice and helpful, sometimes a little busy with all the travellers.
