I had a wonderful stay here, it's everything you're looking for - friendly host, great location (2 blocks from the terminal) very clean, spacious rooms (I stayed in the 8 bed dorm), 2 immaculate kitchens, hot showers and a nice communal room to relax. Great atmosphere and great value for money, really felt like home. Look no further!

Not used a hostel since I was a teenager so didn't know what to expect. I had a 2 bed room for 1 person and good free wifi. The room was clean and neat, likewise the shared bathrooms, and kitchen facilities (though I didn't take the hosteling experience as far as making my own food!) The owner Facundo could not...

We stayed at Hostel Buenos Aires twice on this trip. The owner, Facundo, stays on the premises. He bought this property last April and keeps improving the quality of the hostel. It is the only hostel we stayed at that has TV with the CNN English channel. He has a large, fast computer in the lobby for guests to use....

We stayed here for tree nights and a had a good stay. The hostel is fairly basic but is clean and internet works reasonably. The owner is friendly, speaks English, and was very helpful with booking soms trips for us. There are also two well-equipped kitchens that can be used. One major downside was the breakfast, which was basically two...

Hostel Buenos Aires is nice, cheap,clean and it is located near the bus station. We are traveling for one year and we would like to find more places like this. Plus, the new owner (since one month) is really nice and helped us as much as he could. Very good service for the price

Focando, the new owner was very helpful and accommodating- speaks good english too, only stayed for one night but convenient and very close to the bus station and centre of town, rooms clean and comfortable with all the required services needed by most travellers.

Not expecting the world from this but pleasantly surprised. It's not too big - I hate big hostels so it's ok here. The wall pretty thin so you can hear noises but everyday you are dead tired from daily excursions so that's not a problem. Wifi pretty strong in room 2 and big toilet so that's fine. Kitchen is pretty...

This is a family run hostel. The rooms are clean and the common area is nice. We stayed in a private room with its own toilet. The family are very nice and always have a smile for you. The main problem is the heat, the radiator in our room would not turn off and was too hot to put your...
