Telmo Tango

(011) 4361 5808.

This friendly hostel in San Telmo is a clean and comfortable option for those new to Buenos Aires. Organised trips include outings to football games, and the manager, who speaks good English, is more than happy to fill newcomers in on what is going on in the city. The terrace on the top of the building unfortunately lacks any kind of view, but it is a nice little space in which to catch the sun away from the busy streets. Some rooms are much better than others – ask for one at the front of the building that benefits from a balcony.
