Rooms are good, very clean and the female staff are very helpful. Hot water in showers. Breakfast standard hostel breakfast. Excellent location. However, kitchen is tiny and difficult to cook in! Also, if you are looking for an atmosphere where you meet people and have easy going chats, then avoid this place. If you like all hostel staff to smile, say hi or acknowledge your presence then avoid this place. We found it unfriendly compared to other hostels in BA, like Rayuela.

Nothing fancy but our double room was large & the staff were very helpful. Great location for the San Telmo markets.

Hostel is situated in San telmo. The staff are brilliant. I met some really friendly Colombian and Brazilian staff as well as a girl from Reunion island. They were always happy to answer any of my questions or help in any way they could. I would highly recommend this hostel.

The hostel is very nice, but there is no entertainment programation and it is really far from the places the staff reccommended. Also the staff don't speak English (not a problem for me, but for those who don't speak Spanish that could be a problem).

I only stayed in this hostel for one night and it went smoothly. The staff was friendly and breakfast was fine. The room was clean and bathrooms small but fine. I wouldn't recommend staying here for your whole time in BA because it is quite far from the city centre. But it works for a night or two.

Great location! I loved San Telmo neighbourhood. The hostel is great to meet people. You'll find travelers of all ages there and it's a good option both for families and solo travelers.

I enjoyed a lot my stay at the hostel and definitely will come back at the end of my trip. The people who work there are very friendly and super helpful (public transport advises, booking and planing of flights and etc). The place was clean and there was an excellent breakfast included in the price of accommodation. The location is perfect - close to all the touristy spots & public transport. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay in Buenos Aires.

Good location, nice hostel friendly and helpful staff. Really good location to explore Buenos Aires - walking distance to San Telmo square and easy access to the Subte (5mins walk) hostel itself a little tired, beds a bit creaky, lockers a bit battered but kept clean and tidy for the most part. Breakfast nothing to write home about but passable!

I've stayed at about 10 hostels in Buenos Aires on this trip and this is by far the most uninspiring hostel I've been to. Dirty, depressing facilities, small and not well-maintained, most staff don't understand a word of english. There are plenty of hostels in San Telmo, I highly recommend that you don't stay at this one.

Thank you very much for your comment, I would like to explain that the 8th and 9th of November was one of the most important music festivals in Argentina and was full of latin american people that speak spanish sure was for that you not felt comfortable like at home or traveling with more europeans. Our raiting said , cleanliness and the rest of the things are ok by the most of other costumers, sorry if you can´t enjoy your stay here All the best at your trip Hostel Inn Staff

It's a excellent hostel, with a staff very nice. I didn't have any problem there. The breakfast was simple, but good. The ambient was quiet and cleaned. So I recommended!

Friendly staffs and good bathrooms, just the kitchen is too small.(only for 2 people to cook) And it's very near to the sunday market which is good.

Good solid hostel, San telmo a great place to stay. The breakfast could be better I think though, plates and cups a bit dirty too!

My favorite part about hostel inn was that it was just as easy to party and meet new people as it was to get a good night's sleep. It's the best of both worlds, with lots of great travelers coming through and ready to hang out, but also quiet rooms (I stayed in the 8 bed dorm upstairs and slept like a baby) you can crash in. Then you add in the great location and the beautiful building itself... it's the kind of hostel that will make you extend your stay in a city.

Lovely colonial building in the historical part of the city, just few block away from Plaza Dorrego... attended by the very owners (Dany and Marina) who gave me homely attention, truly making me feel as a local in B.A. I highly recommend it if you guys`re looking for authentic contact with appreciable cultural roots! i`ll Definitely stay there again coming back to Buenos Aires

Stayed here for a week in August in a private room, rooms are a good size. Really good security, being buzzed in and out. Staff really helpful and friendly. Breakfast is OK. Kitchen could be cleaner. Location excellent, can walk to lots of sights or the metro is a few minutes walk.

I definitely recommend Hostel Inn to anyone coming through Buenos Aires. The location in San Telmo is pretty ideal, close to the Sunday street market, Plaza Dorrego & to 2 metro stations. The staff is made up of both Argentines & travelers which makes for friendly people & good advice in a bunch of languages. Breakfast here is one of the best out of any hostel I've ever stayed in in South America & there is enough common space to meet fellow travelers. Definitely worth spending some time here!

Amazing staff, close to many intresting places, and very comfortable rooms! Great breakfast. I can't say enough good things. Probably the best security I've seen for a hostel. This place is perfect. Not a party hostel per se but there were always people around willing to have drink and chat. Staff were very friendly and forthcoming with suggestions and tips to assist my time
