Lovely building- full of character. Beautiful lift and staircase. Roof top area which is peaceful. Showers are clean, wifi is good. We met friendly travellers. Draw back was our room was at the front and next to the night club so a bit of boom boom throughout the night. (Us finishing our night at 3:30 was a bit early for BA. Bunks were a bit wobbly but good matresses and clean beds that were made up nicely.

Nice place to stay, room has no windows though, the rest was beautiful! Special mention to the rooftop, a little jewelry in the downtown of B Aires

Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable, good location. I enjoyed the free tango and Spanish classes. It is noisy on Friday and Saturday nights because of the night club next door, but quiet the rest of the time.

Great location, friendly staff, organised football match tour for us, really good bar on the terrace, free activities every day such as Spanish and tango lessons, the bbq was a bit of a let down. The kitchen was being expanded at time of visit so should be a good size when finished. Good bathrooms and relatively spacious dorms, the a/c is very loud and leaked a bit, not all rooms have a/c though.

The lock on my dorm door didn't work (you could open it even if the lock was set) and the latch on the locker was too small to put a padlock on. They also didn't have all the keys to my room - i think some were missing. You have to buzz to get into the front door, but they don't check who it is, so anyone could have come into my dorm at any time. The place was quite messy, the wifi was very weak, breakfast wasn't great. Great location and price, but you get what you pay for. Would NOT return.

Awesome hostel. Great location, facilities and atmosphere. The rooftop area is great for chilling out. Most of the staff were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this to friends staying in Buenos Aires.

Great hostel! The hostel setup is great and very tourist friendly. The kitchen was a little less equipped but didn't really have any other issues.

The staff is extremely helpful, and there is a good vibe at the hostel. I got sick during my stay and they have their own doctors they called to check on me for free. Thr entire staff was fantastic and caring. They also have some good bike tours they arrange, and lots of events at the roof top bar.

Staff seemed unorganized and didn't seem to communicate with each other. Great location though. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. Lots of stairs. Good rooftop bar, okay breakfast. Wifi connection wasn't the greatest

Very nice hostel with a lot of character. The roof top bar is a major bonus as that is one thing BA lacks a lot of. Very nice place.

It's the second time we stayed at Portal Del Sur and the vibe is great. If you're a couple, the private ensuite is good and the location and facilities (roof-top bar, breakfast included) can't be beat. The staff is really helpful too.

Loved the atmosphere and rooftop bar, great for meeting loads of new people. Lots of activities available a lot of fun all going out together. First time in BA so booked here and Millhouse to try the two and would say Portal is better for sure! Less of a business, way more fun and welcoming. Very clean bathrooms and facilities in general. Loved this place.

Really nice and welcoming hostel. Good atmosphere and the staff is very kind and helpful. The only drawback in my opinion is the lack if ac in the hostel. Some room have ac but being everywhere else is really unbearable in buenos Heath.

Our bedroom door was extremely hard to lock and there was one key in a mixed dorm of 4 makes it very tough to keep your things safe! The aircon is a must theres no other airflow to speak of but thery are super noisy. It was $19 a night so i guess you get what you pay for. Staff are all friendly and the free activities are great.

GREAT hostel! I came here to stay 1 week and ended up staying 4. The staff is excellent and the accomodations are great. There is a beautiful rooftop bar with terrace. Activities are planned almost every day and there are affordable Spanish lessons right in the hostel. A great choice for any type of traveller!

I had the greatest time in Buenos Aires and at Portal del Sur Hostel, the staff was very helpful and always keen to answer any inquire in the nicest way. It feels, not only safe, but also, cozy and fun inside. The location is very in the middle of every good thing there is to see and visit in Buenos Aires. The roof top bar gives you the perfect opportunity to meet and have a drink with people from every part of the world. My mum and I had the best time at Portal del Sur !.
