I really enjoyed my stay in Circus hostel. It's perfect located in San Telmo, the pool is great to hang around and it s very modern interiour. The breakfast was the best I ever got in hostel. It's more a hotel than a hostel and in the end of my trip it was great to come down and just relaxed!!! 5 stars in sum!!!


Really nice hostel with a pool. More like a hotel than a hostel with a great breakfast. Not the place to go to meet a ton of people easily but great to relax and be by the pool. Only real complaint was the staff struggled to make recommendations. Even just for a good restaurant in the area they had to look it up on google.


More of a hotel than a hostel. Only one plug per room, and the staff wasn't very interested in helping resolve the issue. The pool is small and not very social. The maids moved things around the room, which is not good if 6 people are trying to keep their stuff straight.


Great pool. Nearly all of the staff are very helpful, was one lad that wore shocking tee shirts that didn't know much. I would call it a hotel not a hostel. Breakfast could be better if the included eggs for free. There is no gym as mentioned in their facilities- it's actually across the road. Relaxing by the pool is a big bonus for this place and they have one of the better pool tables going round. Very clean.. Dorms are squishy. They need to take a one bunk bed out to make it a better stay.


i dont imagine my stay in buenos aires being ever this good for the 10 days i stayed there. the whole staff is amazing and friendly every time of the day, clean rooms every day i tidy up, air con is great for hot weather and breakfast is a highlight too . honestly i wouldn't imagine staying anywhere else so close to every love restaurant and such a characteristic area of buenos aires. highly recommended


I had a really good time at Circus. For some it could be a bit quiet, but that's what I liked about this hostel. Also, the bed was comfy, the locker was huge and the shower in my dorm was really good. Security is top notch, thanks to a system of magnetic cards. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable. There is even a pool, for warmer times. Great location, don't miss the Feria in San Telmo every Sunday. No kitchen, but there are plenty of restaurants in the area. More electrical outlets would help.
