Very caring staff, no complaints


Great hostel, friendly, clean, good wifi & breakfast. Kitchen on the small side. Only negative was the location wasn't great for us, even as a couple we didn't feel very safe walking on the immediate streets around the hostel and we much preferred the Palermo area to San Telmo.


Shower is small. Rooms are small. But it's clean. The staff is very friendly.


Overall clean hostel in a fairly good location. Atmosphere was great, the front desk staff however could improve- either they ignore you for 5min or have an attitude- other travellers I met actually had similar issues. Still a good place to stay though!


The best hostel in San Telmo, thanks for making my stay excellent!

Really good hostel with a perfect location if you like to spend time in San Telmo. Enthousiastic and helpfull staff and a good breakfast!


Very nice place to stay. On par with some of the best hostels at which we've stayed in Europe. Breakfast was a little weak (we just brought fruit with us) though since it was complimentary it is hard to complain. The neighborhood is not ideal but close to Puerto Madero--if that's what you want. Recoleta or Palermo are much better locations to stay.


Mixed clients, quiet rooms (apart from Friday BBQs), awesome shower, poor WiFi, usual stuff for breakfast, always kept clean, friendly staff, card-key access to rooms, backpack sized lockers, kitchen has 2 cookers with working ovens and 2 sinks with plenty of pans and plates although no kitchen knives.


It's just perfect :) The staff is really nice, almost always the same people so they actually get to know you. The security is tight. I was a bit worried about the comments of it being noisy but apart from really loudly snoring roommates it's actually not a problem. Heavy doors and decent windows keep out most noise.


Enjoyed my stay at America del Sur. Staff were extremely helpful and rooms were very clean. Dorms were small and top bunk was difficult to access but mattress was comforts. Location in San Telmo was excellent. Only downside was noise. I was on the 4th floor and the sound/chatter/music carried from the main level all hours of the day/night. Breakfast was decent...fruit would be a nice healthy addition though.
