Hostelworld says:

Hostel Suites Obelisco is highly rated here on Hostelworld for its location, and no wonder - it's located downtown, just off Avenida 9 de Julio at the Obelisk and a short walk from Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada and three different subway lines. This hostel offers clean, comfortable and spacious rooms with friendly, helpful staff who can help guests to book tours and transport and have excellent local knowledge. We like that they have a bar and games onsite, making it easy to meet fellow travellers.

Property Information:

  • Hostel Suites Obelisco says

    We've also been highly rated for our location, just 200 metres from the Obelisco and the famous 9 de Julio Avenue. The one local place I'd recommend that guests visit would be La Boca, for sure.
    For fun, guests can read any book from the library, cook their own food or watch movies at the DVD room. They can also take part in different social activities, meet other travelers around the pool table, or spend all night on our bar!

    I came to this hostel years ago when I first went to Buenos Aires, and now I go there every time I pass through there. I love how this place is set up, and it's very easy to meet other hostelers and they make it really easy to find activities to do. There are some quirks, like the keys jamming in room doors, and getting the elevator to work, but I really love this place and will continue to come back here whenever I pass through this city.
