Cosy and homely place

4.2 on November 12, 2012

We have just had two weeks in Republica San Telmo, and we really enjoyed our stay. Nicolas and David were in charge while the owners were on holiday. They did a good job, and were very helpful in all ways. Georgelina the breakfast- and cleaninggirl, was a quiet, smiling and serviceminded person. If we ever are going to Buenos Aires again, we will come back to this place. Thank you.

Peaceful Oasis in San Telmo

We had such a good experience at Republica Hostel...well taken care of by Agustin and Nicolas. We were given great advice on the best places to see and felt so at home during our stay. Highly recommended!

Good place to stay

4.2 on April 29, 2012

Good location - close to Subway, buses, and a lot of restaurants and cafes, huge Sunday market place, pleasant environment - people dancing in the streets, small shops, family-owned stores selling everything you need, walking distance from the center of Buenos Aires. Very clean - bathrooms and common areas are cleaned daily and thoroughly. Good size rooms with high ceilings. Air conditioners/heaters controlled from the room, cozy breakfast room and kitchen area with big table for everybody. Delicious breakfast - fresh croissants and bread with delicious butter, lecho and jam, hot coffee and tea. Very friendly and helpful staff - on the first morning Nicolas (the hostel manager) provided us with information about attractions, places to visit and directions. He and his staff were always around when we needed to call a taxi and helped us to book a tour and a show. It so happened that we lost all our cash and credit cards on the second day of walking about the city. With our non-existant Spanish we found ourselves in a very tough situation. Nicolas was extremely helpful. He went far beyond his duties in assisting us. He spent hours of his personal time to help us with multiple phone calls, lent us money so we could survive for a couple of days until the card replacements arrived, translated for us in the Western Union office and on the phone, walked with us everywhere and even delayed his personal appointments. So after all the troubles we went through, we were left with warm feelings about Buenos Aires. We can never thank Nicolas enough for all his help.

Great stay in San Telmo

Republica San Telmo is a great value! The bed was super comfortable, everything was very clean. The service was outstanding! The guys helped us with our onward travel, oriented us to BA, and recommended wonderful restaurants. I highly recommend staying at Republica San Telmo when visitng the area.

The perfect retreat

4.6 on February 21, 2012

We found this lovely hostel perfect to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Rooms were lovely and clean. The building is small and well laid out, perfect for people who want to relax and have peace and quiet and Agustin is very helpful with finding and organising things to do in Buenos Aires. It is very central yet feels more homely than anything else. A really good option. We´ll come back for sure
