We enjoyed our stay in this hostel. Very clean and well maintained. Staff were helpful, well located in San Telmo. The hostel offered many options for activities like walking tours, tango shows, day trips etc.

Stayed in a private ensuite. Modern building and design. Very large hostel with 5 floors. Open area on first floor very conducive for socializing with other guests. Daily walking tours with new neighborhoods every day. Helpful staff. Location isn't the best but the subway is approximately ~10 min away. Calle Florida, a major pedestrian street, is ~ 15-20 min away.

The hostal is a great value for what you pay! The atmosphere and staff is very fun. My dorm (4 beds) for super super tiny and the shower was ridiculously small, but if you can deal with that it's a great hostel!

The place was really spacious and clean, and the staff were awesome. They were happy to help organize a transfer from the airport to the hostel for me. I had to check out by 11, but they were happy to let me store my bags at the hostel until I had to leave for my bus late that evening. I'd happily stay there again, and hopefully I'll get the chance to try their other location too!

Its in a nice building, nice rooms, but they did not have a carpet in the room and the wash is right next to the dorm bed, so when you wake up you wake up pretty much everyone in the room. that was uncomfortable. the girls at the reception were sweet.

The staff is great but has forgotten to return the deposit for the keys. It is not about the money (20 ARS) but if this is required on the check in, should not be forgotten on the check out.

Good hostel, but the dorms feel like you're sleeping in a bathroom. Other than that it's a great stay with good breakfasts and plenty of things organised each day. Highly recommended

Fun tour with Marina, super breakfast, good 4 person dorm, black out blinds and all. Purpose designed modern building with good airey touch, not boxy or institutionl.

Amazing hostel with a great, friendly atmosphere. Located in a quiet area of San Telmo but still very close to nightlife and the tourist spots, opposite a supermarket and a few blocks from the subway and bus station. Staff are the most helpful hostel staff I've ever encountered - full of recommendations for restaurants, clubs, tourist activities and day trips. Can't recommend this hostel enough - after travelling South America for several months, this is by far the best hostel I stayed in!

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!

Nice modern hostel. Quite along way from the airport but just depends what area you want to stay in. Wifi didn't work in the rooms other than that no complaints. Good breakfast.

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!
