One of the best hostel in Buenos Aires


97%

Very helpful and friendly staff. Everything in this hostel is perfect. Cool common area, very easy to meet people and they arrange sth for you to do almost everyday. Very chill place to hang out. Nothing to complaint. The only downside is it's located in a dangerous area. I got robbed there. So just be very careful, pay extra attention to the strangers on the street and you'll be fine. Strongly recommend to all the travelers who want to meet other travelers and want to have an enjoyable stay.

The hostel staff is just amazing, they were very helpful and friendly during our stay. The rooms are cleaned each day. There is a TV and computers room with super comfy couches and a kitchen that is well equipped. I just love this hostel.

Very nice hostel, easy to meet other travellers. Breakfast buffet was good and it´s not too far from the main tourist attractions. If you go there by public bus (as indicated on its hostelworld-webpage) make sure you have a SUBE or the right amount of coins (currently: 6 pesos) or the bus driver won´t let you in. Profit from the free walking tours and the other offers!

Amazing hostel. Very clean and great staff. Lots of scheduled and recommended activities that are included on a chalkboard in the lobby. Free breakfast is good and the BBQ was also excellent. Not a party hostel perse, but very social atmosphere and people tend to take the party out of the hostel to the amazing bars in the area.

I would be very surprised if anyone had a single bad word to say about this hotel! From the moment I arrived to the moment I left it was nothing short of brilliant...... everything was better than excellent and is the perfect model for a brilliant hostel .... thanks to the team at America del Sur for the atmosphere, the help they give you, for keeping it spotlessly clean and for providing everything you need ... gracias Chicas! x x

Great clean hostel. Comfy beds. Staff really friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of people wanting to meet others to go out and do things. Not a party hostel but can certainly stay up drinking and having a laugh in the lounge. Downside- sink was in the main dorm room and felt I was disturbing roommates a fair bit by just brushing my teeth. It is in San telmo which has plenty of character but not near going out area of Palermo which is about 30mins away. Would recommend.

Really good location and nice and clean. Staff were great and always there to answer any questions. Atmosphere was great too!


86%

Facilities were nice and clean. Atmosphere was a little boring. People did not engage with each other as much as they do at other hostels. Many kept to themselves. As a solo traveler, it was definitely possible to meet other people, but the atmosphere was not as fun and convivial as at other establishments.

Overall there really shouldn't be any negative to this hostel at all. Maybe a slight knock of location away from Palermo and nightlife. Getting there is easy though. Metro is close and easy to use. What really makes this hostel is the staff. From day one they treat you like an old friend, not a customer. They have a big board with suggestions for everyday of the week. Every single one was way above average. Especially the La Bomba show on Monday's. Leon, Diego, and Mary made my trip.

It looks better in the website but the hostel is very cozy and new. The only thing that could improve is the bathroom inside the room without support for the clothes and accessories.

Very modern hostel located in San Telmo. Excellent facilities, with a great TV room and 3 computers available. Lockers available for rent at $5 pesos for those who have to check out early. Nice basic breakfast in morning with great bread, cake, yogurt. Dorm room facing the courtyard was very loud at night with people talking, and in the morning with breakfast noise. Air conditioning did not work well in the dorm. Staff were a bit cold, but helpful when approached- except Mary, always friendly.
