Great Hostel, loved being there and we met some great people! The owner is a great guy and did everything to help us when there was anything. We could go to him straight away to ask for help or a solution.


It´s right in front of a 15+ lane highway und above the underground. Our double room with shared "balcony" would shake if a tube came by. The kitchen was ok except the swarms of cockraches in the cupboards. The "Garden" a rooftop with a couple of plants was ok, not relaxing but ok. Breakfast was basic but no one would even change the tablecloths for days. The library was excellet, though! The owner is a great guy who really tried to get the place running. Not San Telmo as advertised!


It is a very good hostel, comfortable, quiet and with a friendly staff. It's very close to the subway and many bus lines. Just a precision, the address and the description online say 'San Telmo' and 'Montserrat', but the hostel is in reality in the district of 'Constitucion'.


At first we had only booked to nights, but we ended up staying six nights because we really liked the place. There is a great atmosphere where people really talk to eachother. The place is run by a brother and sister, and they are great! The sleepingrooms are good, and the commonroom is nice and clean too. But They should really do a proper cleaning of the kitchen. It is a mess and we did see cockroaches there a couple of times. But overall we would love to return to The Garden!


This is the best hostel I've stayed at in South America. The staff go the extra mile to help you out and there's a great mix of travellers here. It's a smaller hostel so everyone meets everyone. The breakfast is big enough and the beds are comfortable. There are two locked doors on the way in for security and there are lockers for your valuables. I have stayed here twice and would definitely stay again.

I spent 2 nights at this hostel and it was really good, close to 2 metro stations, supermarkets and restaurants are close to the hostel, the breakfast is ok don't expect too much, the team is really nice. If you want to feel like home this is the right place to stay...is cozy and you can get to know the people easier


The breakfast couldcould have a little more variety. The bathrooms upstairs are not recomandable to use.


I really enjoyed staying at Garden. Great atmosphere and fantastic staff. Definitely I do recommend.

Staying here was wonderful, like staying with family. Everyone was warm and welcoming and very helpful. The hostel is close to attractions and offers a range of activities to suit everyone. Beds are comfortable and most bathrooms are functional. Breakfast is staple bread jams and coffee. plenty of room for everyone, including a lovely outdoor area on the rooftop
