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 is one of the oldest districts in the city and is within walking distance of Plaza de Mayo, 9 de Julio Avenue, Puerto Madero and Plaza Dorrego. The metro station and buses are also nearby, so you can go everywhere easily.

We have a wide range of private rooms, with doubles, singles and twin bedrooms as well as triples and quadruples. We also offer four-person shared dorms. Both the shared and the private rooms have private bathrooms, individual air conditioning units and a hairdryer. Double rooms also have cable TV, telephone and safety boxes. Dorms have individual lockers.

    I can say that I made the best decision of staying here during Argentina's lockdown due to the Coronavirus. The facilities are good, always clean, and though the kitchen is small, it has all the necessary things to whip up a good meal. I actually felt like in a hotel - with comfortable beds, air-condition, and own toilet. Lastly, the staff are all really nice, and special mention to Cynthia, who helped me with everything and who was always extra nice. I will stay here again in the future!

    Great hostel in the centre of San Telmo! The staff were really helpful, friendly and also spoke perfect English. They had events on including free tango lessons and walking tours which were really good and a great way to meet people. Would highly recommend!

    Great hostel to start out in. Clean, very secure and lots of friendly people. Bit hard to socialise but just have to take the initiative and make it happen. San Telmo is a good location, close to Plaza de Mayo but further away from Palermo and La Boca so it won’t be what everyone is looking for so do a bit of research. Overall great stay 😁

    Stayed in so many hostels in South America over last 15 years. This hostel wasn't as great as I expected being voted #1 hostel in South America. Things I would've liked to know.... Pros: Clean,Helpful English speaking staff,Secure, Good location for san Telmo, Each room has own bathroom Cons: Sink is outside of bathrm in main room, Electricity needs a key so if someone leaves and takes their key out goes light and AC, no breakfast, Big hostel w large common area so hard to meet others

    The Wi-Fi is incredibly slow. They have sinks next to beds meaning you get to enjoy waking up to the sound of someone brushing their teeth next to you.

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
