“A super place to stay”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights in December and wasn't disappointed. A very good hostel, but more like a hotel. The rooms are very clean and the staff are very helpful. The location is fantastic. Breakfast was ok! The pool area is small but was never busy, you lose sun after 2pm . My only gripe was 2 days the pool couldn't be used until midday as it was being cleaned. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay in BA.

The rooms were new and nice, with comfortable beds I utilised often for siestas. It was nice to have a pool in the hot December weather, however it was rarely clean. The location was good but a few blocks away from any main streets. I didn't find it particularly easy to meet people, it felt more like a hotel in that respect. But I enjoyed my stay and I would stay again.

The staff at the hostel were great very helpful, and I asked A LOT of questions. Also got to practice my Spanish but switched to English for me when I needed it. Our ensuite twin room was simple and clean but comfortable with good air conditioning. Breakfast bit more varied than other places we stayed with fruit as well as pastries and tea as well as coffee. Nice common area and pool, good wifi. Found nice places to eat nearby. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again of I was back in the area.

Staying at Circus Hostel was a great decision, upon arrival we were warmly treated by the girl at the front desk. The room we stayed in was a double with a private bathroom, it was simple, very clean and comfortable. We had booked three nights and were told we would have to switch rooms our third night, which would have made our city plans difficult. After explaining to the guys at the front desk we didn't want to switch rooms, one of them was able to fix the problem (great customer service). The breakfast is light like most Argentina breakfast, but the croissants and pastry's are great! Every time we wanted some ice water we would ask the girls who do breakfast and they would gladly get it for us. The pool is also a really nice addition to this hostel, making it stand out even more. Overall a great experience we plan on staying at Circus when we return to the city.

Cool hostel/hotel in the centre of the city, a little far from the closest metro. Modern with a small pool in the garden terrace; inviting communal area, friendly staff,good size rooms and bathroom (private rooms). Nice breakfast, great coffee.

I liked to stay at the Circus. Aircon was good, so was the pool! Internet and Wifi was working great. Had a good stay there. The staff was very helpful and indicated all the things I needed. The breakfast was like in a hotel, juice, bread, fresh fruits. I had many argentinian breakfasts but this one was one of the best. It was very quit at night in the room.

This was the last hotel we stayed after our 18 days travel around Argentina, so we have had quite a view good and bad experiences before ending up here. Very positive experience though! Clean, tidy and quiet. Has a nice and cozy pool area. The breakfast is far the best we had in Argentina. The place has two "faces" and services backpacker style travelers as well as the more traditional hotel guests. The staff consists of young (early twenties) girls and boys who easily get on with people from both side of the spectrum, and very helpful if you need help or assistance. Good location in San Telmo area.
