Liked: Raquel at the reception was very helpfull and enthousiastic. Nice bed. Safe and good atmosphere.

Disliked: The bathroom could have been cleaner plus better organised by i.e. replacing the door with a sliding door. Breakfast lady is unfriendly plus breakfast is too simple.

Liked: Rooms were cleaned regularly. Good communal facilities and nice pool area. Breakfast was also really good. Good general location with plenty of buses available near by to take you to different areas of the city but not necessarily a very lively area of San Telmo. Would recommend for backpackers who have been to Buenos Aires before and are looking for a different location to stay in.

Disliked: Being my 2nd time in Buenos Aires and being able to speak the language fluently, I often asked the staff for advice on places to go, good nights out on particular evenings etc. Compared to other hostels I've stayed in, in Buenos Aires, I thought the staff were quite unhelpful, not very enthusiastic or interested in guests making the most out of their stay in the city. I found this with various members of the reception staff. You're better off asking other backpackers or checking online blogs rather than asking the staff at Circus!

Liked: Very friendly staff, great price for Buenos Aires, comfortable rooms with all the amenities I like: good beds, big mirror in bedroom, shelves, hangers, big windows.

Disliked: On saturday there was a loud party going on in the restaurant of the hostel under our window. The other two days it was very quiet. Request a room to the back, if you go to sleep early.

Liked: I liked everything except internet connection - see "dislike section".

Disliked: Internet connection is definitely to be improved. In hostels, in XXI century it is basic thing. At the moment consider internet in Circus as "sometimes available".

Liked: Great staff, location and facilities. Very clean and tidy.

Disliked: Everything was great until check out time. There was a few of us trying to check out and only one girl dealing with all of us, people leaving keys, asking for things and opening the front door. Sunday morning. Aparentrly the credit cards weren´t working, something with the system, the computer or whatever, not my issue but i took like 40 min to check out. Not cool at all.

Liked: Great facilities and room - stayed in a private room with en-suite so more a hotel than hostel but has an outdoor pool, pool table, bar and tv lounge area to hang out in.

Disliked: The atmosphere wasn't as lively as some other hostels as there were many different types of people staying there, from families with young children, people on business as well as your usual backpacking travellers. But was good to stay at a hostel with a wider range of guests.

Liked: Extremely clean and well kept. We had a private ensuite double, and it was more like a hotel than a hostel. The cleaners came everyday. Breakfast was nice (pastries, juice, fruit & bread) Free pool table. Really nice swimming pool which turned into a jaccuzzi at night. Good location in San Telmo, close to everything.

Disliked: We had some trouble with the room tab system that they have here - drinks and restaurant meals that weren´t ours appeared on our room tabs. we assumed it was the work of some sneaky hotel guests giving the wrong room number, until one of the waiters approached us and insisted he had served us the food the night before (he hadn´t!!) luckily the manager took our word for it. --I´m sure it was all a mistake, but just keep an eye on your room tab!!
