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


Not a bad hostel, but not amazing either. Conveniently located in the San Telmo area, it was easy to get around. There were lots of activities planned everyday including a rooftop BBQ. The breakfast was on the average side


it's the best


Great hostel. Nice staff and really modern facilities. Only odd thing is no power outlets in the room.


This is an excellent hostel and I would strongly recommend staying here - the staff are very helpful with directions, bus tickets and they got me a ticket to see Boca Juniors tickets with 24 hours notice. Breakfast is good and there is a good backpacker atmosphere, helped by the bar being available. The only improvement could be the wifi signal which isn't great, but other than that it's a very good hostel.


Muy bueno pero faltaba un poco de limpieza en la cocina.

Clean and Spacious - but no charging points in rooms and few people, so very little atmosphere. Loved the Yoga classes and staff are helpful - good location for San Telmo and City Centre
