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.

Property Description

Hostelworld users rated us the Best Hostel in Latin America at the 2011 & 2012 Hoscars!

If you’re looking for a modern place with a relaxed atmosphere and welcoming should experience America del Sur Buenos Aires!

Our hostel opened in December 2008. It was built from scratch to fulfil backpackers’ needs while offering modern decor and high-comfort accommodation. We’re in the famous San Telmo district. 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.

We also have wheelchair accessible rooms and two elevators.

Shower and toilets are in different compartments so two people can use them at the same time.

We have a great TV room with DVDs, an amazing open area for BBQs, free Internet access on three shared computers and a free Wi-Fi signal in all rooms and common areas.

    I liked the location, close to downtown and san telmo. daily activities are offered in this hostel. However, info is not very clear or visible, you need to ask or doublecheck with staff. good location, offered walking tours are good (Especifically with Nico in a walking tour downtown). The other guy of the walking tour took us to BOCA but tour was so quick and he cancelled the second tour which was not okay. hotel is good, great wifi, good price. They help to book a taxi to airport. good value.

    The hostel is located in a great neighborhood of San Telmo. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They had tours arranged to see different parts of the city and also maps if you wanted to venture alone. The only drawback is the sink in the dorm is in the sleeping area instead of the bathroom.

    I love America Del Sur! We stayed in the one in El Calafate as well and both of them were clean and comfortable and it was super easy to make friends :)

    Had such an amazing time here, was my first time in Buenos Aires. Staff is great, very helpful and able to assist you with whatever tour/activity you’re interested in doing. Couldn’t ask for a better location being central and close to public transportation. Door room was clean, well kept, but shower, toilet and sink are all separated making getting dressed/washed a bit inconvenient. Private dorm rooms are nice with en-suite complete bathroom. Overall, great stay and will definitely be back!!

    Great staff and friendly; they were able to accommodate me with additional days on short notice. Wi-fi doesn't work on the 4th floor, which means you'll need to use internet from the lobby. They do a good job attempting to keep the facility clean; the facility itself is satisfactory. I'm likely to recommend, though their Calafate location is a bit better.

    I got bitten by bedbugs when I stayed here as did my dorm mates and people from another dorm on the same floor. I don't think a place should get written off because of bed bugs but reception could have handled it better.

    An ok place to stay in an ok location. Wouldn't recommend staying here, and I wouldn't recommend staying in Buenos Aires. Staff wasn't very helpful and at times were drunk during work hours. A few friends I met there had worse problems and my review reflects their experience as well. Also, the door entry system is ridiculous. Having to have someone push a button to let you in every time is ridiculously inefficient, especially when workers get overwhelmed with customers.

    Has bed bugs!! Didn’t care at all when I was covered in bites. They replied with “We don’t have bedbugs in Argentina”. An absolutely ridiculous statement! When I told them they added my room to the already written list of rooms that had bedbugs. They didn’t care nor were even willing to apologize!

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
