I had a great time at Ostinatto Hostel. The Staff was really friendly and helpful. There had been several activities like free walking tours, tango lesson or bbq which I really recommend. The breakfast was also very good. The Hostel is located in San Telmo which is quite in the city center and most of the sights are just a few minutes to walk.

What a great experience! The hostel is designed beautifully with comfortable common areas to meet other travelers. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Within an hour of booking, I had already received correspondence from the hostel asking if they could help in any way. The location of the hostel is central to San Telmo, seconds from several markets as well as bars and restaurants; several blocks from subway and bus. I would recommend this hostel to all for a great stay in BsAs!


A great, funky hostel in a good location in San Telmo. Close to lots of bars and cafes, everything is walking distance. The staff are super friendly and helpful, we ended up needed to come back and book another night last minute and they were very obliging. Good breakfast in the kitchen which is very social. The Saturday night BBQ was delicious too! and even came with wine. Would stay here again for sure.


Good location, outgoing staff. Worth a stay. Gracias!


Great hostel in San Telmo - close to all facilities (bus, metro), food market right at the corner and a lot of restaurants around. Very nice atmosphere in the hostel with a helpful staff that gives a lot of suggestions but also many activities are organized by the hostel. The bar is great to meet other travelers, as well as the big kitchen and table. Rooms and bathrooms are clean. I would highly recommend this hostel!!!


Had a good stay while lucky with 8 beds, small, dorm with open doors to balcony which was great at night to lower the heat. Breakfast is not that spectacular and kitchen facilities are average. Bathrooms on every floor and small staircase or small historical elevator to get there. Nice bar with good music and friendly staff. Had some nice nights dancing and drinking.
