Good place to stay to see San Telmo
Hostel staff is very friendly, there's a nice downstairs. The breakfast is just bread, fruit and coffee however, so if you're looking for something more substantial, walk to one of the "notable" cafes. (We liked La Poesia.) This is a good location too. We stayed in a double private room with an ensuite. The room is fine. The bathroom is small and oddly shaped, which makes it a bit of a warble to get around. But the price is good.

Nice stay
Enjoyed my stat at the Circus. Everyone in the reception was very helpful and friendly, great atmosphere and met a few good people to travel together in Buenos Aires and Colonia in Uruguay. The best thing is the events they organise, we had a tango class which was great fun; and there's a tango show the next night which sadly I missed as I had already left. Reasonable price either for dorm and private rooms so highly recommended.

Seems like a nice place - service lacking
Nice enough place. Just the service level was terrible! Check in was slow, but that's ok, what was terrible was i found fresh blood stains on my blanket when i went to go to bed, and when i went to the lobby to get a new blanket, they said I had to wait 30 minutes! I ended up waiting 45 minutes. The girl finally brought me a blanket - but it did not have the blanket cover. I had to insist to get one, then was told i had to put it on the blanket myself. I had to wait another 10 minutes. She brought me blanket cover - also stained with blood! By the way - no apologies about this at all. I finally begged her to let me get a blanket off a spare bed (it was low season). She was not rude, but this level of service was completely unacceptable in my opinion. I signed up for a tango class activity for 7pm, and in the morning the board still said "7pm" when i got back to the hostel about 6:15pm, they had simply stuck a sticker that said the time was changed to 6pm - effectively cancelling the event without notifying me - this ruined my plans for the night.

nice friendly hostel in good location
The hostel is in San telmo and we were close to many restaurants as well as lots of little streets selling antiques and cool nik naks. It's only a 2 minute walk to calle defensa, which in my opinion is the best street for food, browsing and soaking up the atmosphere with a cafe con leche. Plaza de mayo and the casa rosada are about a 15 min walk away.The staff were helpful and even helped us book a tango lesson that cost a quarter of the price of others we'd seen, and they also helped us source football tickets to a Boca match. The pool and outside area were really nice to relax in (although the pool is a lot smaller and shallower than it looks in the photos). Our room was spacious and clean, and not too noisy (we were overlooking the back).

Great location
The staff were great and the breakfast was too. We were made very welcome and it was a good spot to go exploring Buenos Aires from and check out the tango and live music in the square just round the corner.
