My stay was wonderful! The location was excellent - easy to get to and right in the heart of one of the most classic parts of town. If you like tango, San Telmo is where you want to be. The room was clean and comfortable, and breakfast was provided in the morning. The staff were all super friendly and very helpful. They helped me organize fun things to do in the Buenos Aires, and helped book the next leg of my trip as well. I would definitely stay here again.

Location is not great, could be a little closer to San Telmo's main attraction. However, it's really close to the subway station. Staff, overall, is great and very helpful. However, there was this one crazy guy at the reception who walked into our (private) room in the middle of the night. He unlocked the door and almost scared us to death, and didn't even apologize for this. This ruined the overall experience. Another downside is that you can't take alcoholic beverages to the hostel.

Owner of hostel was friendly, however many of the other workers seemed to be fellow travellers and didn't know much about the area. There wasn't too much of a common area and the kitchen was small. They offer a decent breakfast each morning. Showers were hot. Wifi was sometimes iffy but our room was on the top floor. The connection was better in the lobby area. The hostel was in a good location and close to the San Telmo Sunday market. Overall it was a good stay!

Nice hostel in San Telmo, just a few blocks away from the market. Marina and Dani are great hosts, who will be happy to assist you with anything during your stay in BsAs. Good breakfast with homemade cakes!

I really like this hostel! It is clean and I met a lot of nice people here. The only downside is that the staff seem to change a lot and they never know who you are, and also they don't organize events in the hostel. But the staff are helpful, and now all the answers to your questions. Also if you're a girl, don't stay in room 13 on the top bunk, its noisy. And the sheets never stay on the bed, which really annoys me. But all in all, I recommend hostel on location, cleanliness and for meeting p

Dont understand the high hostelworld rating. Some staff were great while others were indifferrent to hopeless. We were pointed in the wrong direction by staff, had clothes stained from floor polish (they did remedy this but without apology) and there is no atmosphere whatsoever. We moved down the road 1 block to a place that was significantly cheaper and way better.

Just perfect! Clean, cozy, comfortable, great value for money. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm: big, good mattress and clean.

Finally a hostel where the pictures actually look like reality. Staff was very friendly, spoke English and helped us to find a great restaurant, tango show. Our room was perfect, they even cleaned the room which we didn't expect at all ! Breakfast was amazing with a personal touch: very good value for money !

Hi fellow travellers. I enjoyed staying at the Hostel-Inn. The staff were friendly and helpful. The building has a nice design and I enjoyed interacting with both the guests and staff. I was happy they had no problems with my request to watch the men's Olympic gold medal hockey game. Canada beat Sweden 3-0 . If you are able to stay here on a Saturday, check out Plaza Dorrego for some live music , Sunday there's a huge street market. Funk&Deli has great food awesome bagels and salad and cafe. Yum

Booked only one night at Hostel Inn and ended up staying three more. The staff is really friendly and helpful. I was surprised by their breakfast that includes even a delicious homemade cake. Location is really good too, in San Telmo and near the subway and buses. Bathrooms and kitchen are really clean, staff is always cleaning them. Wi-fi works well. Great hostel, easy to make friends. Would definitely recommend it!
