Of the many backpacker hostels in Buenos Aires, this one stands out because it feels more like a mid-range hotel, especially if you have a double room that comes with a private bathroom and TV for much cheaper than you’d get at any other area hotel. There are plenty of places to hang out, surf the Internet, play board games, and make new friends, including a courtyard and lounge area. There is a small kitchen that guests can use. It’s located in San Telmo, which has its pros (it's generally a more affordable area and close to historic sites) and cons (it's far from happening Palermo). A good choice for families on a budget.
