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 staff...you 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.

Would you like to reserve any excursion or bus? Or watch and feel an amazing Boca Juniors Football Match? Or find out about the best parties and restaurants in town? Our staff will help you on bookings and advice to make the most of your time in Buenos Aires!

You will be invited to free walking tours around the most important neighbourhoods and we’ll offer you VIP passes for the best clubs.

We look forward to see you soon among our guests!

    Superb

    09 May 2018
    All modern and clean and lovely. Great elevator, nice helpful staff, big lockers, lots of lights in rooms, good security, lots of common space to chill. The sink must have been installed wrong because when you use it the water doesn't fall into the sink but behind it covering the counter and dripping all over the floor. Quite a mess until I wrangled my own system with a plastic bag hooked onto the knobs keeping the water in the sink…. (tip for future guests!). No soap provided. No shelf by bed.

    Fabulous

    Nice hostel in a vibrant colonial neighbourhood. Staff was helpfull but no real atmosphere in the hostel, probably because its so big or because of a bored group of people that was staying there at the time. I recommend this place if u re travelling with a group of friends. Rooms are small but include a private shower and a bathroom which is great, but they dont give u the towels which is not so great. It felt secure. Would stay there again.

    Fabulous

    13 May 2018
    Overall a good hostel, with friendly and helpful staff. Could do with more of an atmosphere and a pool table etc; but you can make friends on tours etc, and the red door bar across the road is great. Marked down on facilities only because the hot water was inconsistent, but otherwise good.

    Very Good

    12 May 2018
    Clean, nice room, I’d go again. This hostel isn’t anywhere near the area of night fun. Stay in a hostel by Palermo for that. Also, front desk made good recommendations of where to go, but let ignorant foreigners (like myself) that the nightlife doesn’t start until 2am!!!

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
