Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests voted America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires the best in Argentina and Latin America at the 2011 Hoscars. This hostel is located in the beautiful San Telmo area, a short walk from Casa Rosada, Plaza de Mayo, Calle Florida and much more. Travellers tell us the staff are 'enthusiastic, friendly, helpful and competent', while the hostel itself is 'very chilled out if you want it to be, but also can party a lot, too'. We like that all their rooms are low capacity and ensuite.

    This hostel was excellent. Huge basement recreation area - Wi-Fi was decent. Very close to everything in San Telmo. People running the desk are super helpful. They don’t have free breakfast anymore due to Covid regulations but they’re apparently going to start that again when they can. Everything is within walking distance.

    The America Del Sur Hostel is a perfect hostel that features great amenities for a very good price. It's located in in the heart of the city and has a very good international vibe. The staff members at this hostel were very friendly and provided great professional services and recommendations. There is an open kitchen that is free to use, however during the time of my visit(roughly one month after the covid travel ban was lifted) there was no kitchen service. All in all I highly recommend!

    It was a one night stay with my girlfriend on a 4 bed bedroom, we couldn't get to the breakfast because we left at 4am, but everything was correct, nice room, comfy beds, with all we needed. I recommend it.

    Is not in the best part of town but close enough to tourist attractions. It's a big apartment building style hostel. Has all the basics. Main downside is when I checked in the guy at the front desk wouldn't accept cash as payment and wouldn't let us check in at 1AM and defer figuring out the payment till next day. Was very unprofessional especially when we were exhausted traveling in. Other than that good hostel

    It’s over hyped! Better to book Airbnb as the facilities are not worth the money. Staff tips are limited and you end up relying on google most of the time. Kitchen was filthy most of the time. Bath in private room was tight - you could barely have a shower the way the space was configured.

    This is the most unkept hostel I’ve stayed at. Dirty. Needs a paint job. Dog hair all over the TV room. ripped cushions. One fridge didnt work, 1 stove didnt work. My private had a bed w/ a giant dent. Stained comforter. The AC had no drain port so it would leak water in the middle of the room constantly. I had to use my towels & trashcan. My toilet also leaked. And there was a hole in the ceiling of the shower that was leaking from room upstairs. No Bar & all social activities canceled! :(

America del Sur Hostel Buenos Aires says

There's a lot going on at our hostel to keep guests busy and happy. In addition to our free walking tours and Wi-Fi, we offer free tango lessons, and free tickets for a lot of parties.
Our new building was purpose-built to suit a hostel and we think it's a lot like a hotel with hostel service and shared rooms. There's a maximum of only four beds in the dorms, with excellent cleanliness and daily cleaning.
We're just 10 minutes' walk from Plaza Dorrego and Puerto Madero, 20 minutes from Plaza de Mayo and Congress, and only three minutes' walk from Avenida 9 de Julio. The one local place that I really recommend guests visit is the Casa Rosada, only 20 minutes' walk away.
The main age group of our guests ranges from 18 to 45 years of age. We have all facilities prepared for people with a wheelchair - there's two modern elevators going to each floor and a room built to fulfil all needs to persons travelling with disabilities. Mariano, Owner
