Nothing bad to say about this hostel! Best one in South America


Good hostel, great location. The bar left a lot to be desired. Could make better use of the roof top terrace. Staff are friendly and helpful. Dorms are a good size with big lockers.


Nothing van fault this hostel! Everything was perfect!


The staff were excellent and very helpful. The hostel is a little rough round the edges and perhaps a refurb would bring this hostel up to the top tier of hostels in Buenos Aires. The rooms were a little noisy due to the close proximity of our room to a road (though I suspect this would be the same anywhere in BA). Breakfast was good. A good place to stay.


Well, it was so disappointing that I've shortended my stay. I have read a nice Lonely Planet review about Ostinato hostel in San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Argentina, but the place is very bad maintained. It looks abandoned, had dirty walls, unprepared staff and... there was hair on my pillow - and it was not mine.

Friendly staff and good location. Hostel was quiet so lacked atmosphere and breakfast was average.


It's the best hostel ever....I love it


very lovely hostel with a chilled-out atmosphere to meet new people. helpful and friendly staff. clean bathroom and kitchen. breakfast is good but nothing special. really enjoyed my stay there!


Great place to stay with lots of atmosphere. Definitely recommend.


Nice hostel, but not much was going on here. Stayed here after Milhouse hostel but had to move due to their being no space. Milhouse was a lot of fun - Ostinatto nice but a lot quieter and not much atmosphere. The staff are really lovely though and the actual hostel is very nice.


Great location and staff. Only bad comment would be that our room had no windows, which made the room feel cramped in, not good if you were claustrophobic. We had a great time here besides the room!


staff very nice, especilay PABLO, he helped me a lot when I had problem. big room, great location,good breakfast
