Meridiano Hostel

My stay at Meridiano Hostel was nothing short of amazing. From the adorable cat Sushi, to the owner, German, it was a great place to stay. Not only was everyone who worked there friendly, but they went above and beyond to give you recommendations on what to do, what to see, where to eat and more. German always made it feel more like a family home than just an ordinary hostel by having BBQs with everyone together, inviting you to go on bike tours or out to the bar. The hostel was always clean, it's in a great location and was just lovely overall. I recommend this hostel to anyone and everyone. Groups, solo travelers, couples...everyone. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent place where we totally feel at home very quickly. Much more cosy and friendly than other buenos aires hostel.
10 mn walk from plaza Serrano (bar square), metro station, the clubs kika and rose bar.
German knows perfectly the travelling spirit being a recent backpacker himself.

We had a fantastic time at this hostel. We have been traveling for two months and it was one of the best stays we've had. Literally no complaints! The house is very physically comfortable and I loved that they had a female dorm. The dorm is situated nicely with a bathroom in the loft upstairs (3 beds up there) and 4 other beds downstairs in that room. Breakfast included bread and jam and coffee or tea and there was always great conversation. German, the owner, had suggestions for every day and night's activities and everything he suggested was wonderful! If he suggests going to the Fuerza Bruta show, DEFINITELY DO IT. One of my favorite experiences in South America. The group staying at the hostel became friends as a result of doing activities together and I was really sad to leave (although iguazu falls, our next destination is amazing too!). Overall it was an absolutely wonderful experience and I would love to come back sometime soon! Definitely book here!

As with the other poor review I booked at a rate of $20 dollars australian a night from booking.com I was told I had to pay 20 US and as I was 45 minutes late checking out, I had to pay another 100 pesos. As the hostess spoke no English I struggled to argue. I understand if someone was waiting to come in but the hostel was empty and three people were still sleeping in my room. So to pay nearly $40 US for one night to stay in a dorm room was a massive rip off.

Besides that Herman, who runs the hostel is fantastic and I'm sure if he were around in the morning this would not have occurred. The hostel itself is nice and relaxed, and located in a nice area. Just don't trust the rates on booking.com. It's $20 per night US plus don't check out late!

I stayed at the Meridiano for 10 nights at the end of a 5 month trip in Latin America. It was definitely my favourite hostel that I stayed in.

The hostel was impecibably clean. The staff (especially German) we're very friendly and always willing to help with any questions and recommendations for restaurants/nights out.

They have a gorgeous kitten who will snuggle up to you when you are sat on the sofa :)

There is a kitchen where you can cook and plenty of showers. Well located in Palermo - short walk to two subte (tube) lines and plenty of bars/restaurants.

Highly recommend!!

If there is one place you want to be staying while visiting Buenos Aires, it's this hostel. The house is cool, nicely decorated, and every little thing is thought for the traveler to feel at ease. Beds are comfortable, internet works perfectly, the common areas are spacious and the breakfast is always gladly served! :) Location is great, in a quiet area with restaurants and bars around!
You dont want to miss it! I would definitely come back!
The owners are super nice and helpful and will do whatever is necessary to help you.
Thanks German & Suzanna!
