My fiancé and I had a great time at Terranova! The building has a charming antique feel that has been painted in such a way that it has a colourful artistic vibe. The paintings are changed regularly which keeps things interesting. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. Most of them speak English and the ones that don't are just...

I lived and worked in Terranova for a month and it was a fantastic experience! The hostel has a decidedly bohemian feel, and the artwork that fills the vibrantly painted walls is as colorful as the people living there. The staff is friendly and helpful and make you feel at home. During the week the hostel is quiet, but since...

If you ever wondered where the people who pay for their travels by juggling or playing guitar or selling woven bracelets stay in Buenos Aires - this is it. The hostel has a laid back Bohemian flavor. It's a little run down and the bathrooms & showers could really use some renovations. There is hot water but very little water...

Terranova is located in the beautiful area of San Telmo, on quite a quiet, yet marvelously artistic street (Humberto Primo 1). Surrounded by amazing street art, Terranova hostel, itself, houses a wonderful an eclectic array of art, has excellent, and very helpful staff, as well as clean bedrooms and good breakfasts. The vibe in the hostel is good in both...

I went to Terranova because I read some good reviews on TripAdvisor. I stayed there (for 5 days or so) because the people are so friendly and the building is charming. The owners and employees of the hostel are awesome: super friendly and helpful. The overall vibe is great. It's a smallish hostel and there's a real community feeling amongst...

While walking the streets of San Telmo my brother and I came across Terranova Hostel. We already had a hostel but we liked the look of the place so decided to check it out. Best choice! 60 pesos per night for a dorm, every night there was live music and fiesta in the bar, a really good kitchen for cooking...

I stayed in hotel Terranova for almost 2.5 weeks. It's a cool place. First of all there's a lot of art in the building (on the walls). Which creates a really nice atmosphere. Especially in barrio San Telmo, where the hostel is placed, it fits in nicely since in that neigbourhood there is street art everywhere. The people working in...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.

“Room four was our favourite as it included its own bathroom and was nice and warm.”

“The dorm rooms are on the main floor and I don't think there's really much of a choice for you to make.”

“We stayed in the last dorm which I think is a good choice because it is furtherest from the bar so if you dont feel like being involved in the party it is quieter plus it is right next to the bathrooms.”
