The Ostinatto, conveniently located in San Telmo, is a clean, friendly hostel catering to the backpacker crowd. There are several dorm-style rooms, each of which has a small locker for your stuff (bring your own lock). Bathrooms are busyâ€“one shower per approximately 10 bedsâ€“but clean.
The Ostinatto is well-known in budget travel circles, and tends to fill up, so youâ€™ll want to book ahead. It is usually full of 20-something backpackers from Europe and North America, and youâ€™ll get to know them in the dorm rooms and at the breakfast table. Breakfast is included: pastries, fruit and coffee are set out by the staff, but be warned that if you sleep in there wonâ€™t be much of anything left.
The friendly owner occasionally organizes cookouts/parties on the top floor, so be sure to ask if thereâ€™s something going on. The desk staff members are also friendly and helpful if you have any questions about Buenos Aires. There is a yoga room on one of the upper floors: check the front desk for hours.
