Fantastic hostel, great advice on tours and trips, very clean and very secure. Fantastic private rooms. The only negative was that the rooms didn't have good WiFi (on the fourth floor anyway). You had to go to reception for wifi.

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
