Hostelworld users rated us the Best Hostel in Latin America at the 2011 & 2012 Hoscars!
If you’re looking for a modern place with a relaxed atmosphere and welcoming staff...you should experience America del Sur Buenos Aires!
Our hostel opened in December 2008. It was built from scratch to fulfil backpackers’ needs while offering modern decor and high-comfort accommodation. We’re in the famous San Telmo district. This is one of the oldest districts in the city and is within walking distance of Plaza de Mayo, 9 de Julio Avenue, Puerto Madero and Plaza Dorrego. The metro station and buses are also nearby, so you can go everywhere easily.
We have a wide range of private rooms, with doubles, singles and twin bedrooms as well as triples and quadruples. We also offer four-person shared dorms. Both the shared and the private rooms have private bathrooms, individual air conditioning units and a hairdryer. Double rooms also have cable TV, telephone and safety boxes. Dorms have individual lockers.
We also have wheelchair accessible rooms and two elevators.
Shower and toilets are in different compartments so two people can use them at the same time. Towels are provided at no extra charge for all rooms.
We have a great TV room with DVDs, an amazing open area for BBQs, free Internet access on three shared computers and a free Wi-Fi signal in all rooms and common areas.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
America del Sur was a great place to say in Buenos Aires. We had read reviews saying it wasn't in a good location - but we were really glad to be in San Telmo with its great restaurants and funky shops, rather than in the craziness of the microcentre. It only took about 15 minutes to walk into the city centre anyway. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and everything was very clean.
