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 are 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 fulfill backpackers’ needs while offering modern decor and high-comfort accommodation. We are 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.

The 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 with bookings and advice to make the most of your time in Buenos Aires!

The team at America Del Sur are super lovely and helpful, and the vibe at the hostel is exactly what you want after a long journey. It was a no brainer to come back when we found ourselves in Buenos Aries again.

Location is good, rooms have what's needed and not more. WiFi is basically nonexistent. Do not expect a party hostel where you can make friends.

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.
