This place steals from you.
The breakfast is so basic I wouldn't call it breakfast. The Wi-Fi is terrible. We left our bags in luggage storage with locks on them but 70 euro and 20 dollars were taken from inside of the bags. They managed to open zips enough to get hand in. We had to leave quickly to get a bus. The manager said he'd contact me. He didn't. Then after I contacted him he said he'd check cameras and get back to me next day. He didnt. In the end after contacting him again he said there were no cameras in storage room! He checked cameras going into store room. He said only guests and staff went it. Guests were supervised! So that leaves staff! The manager wasn't helpful and had to be pushed to do anything. Haven't got money back! The money was definitely taken in there because found paper with my name on it on the ground. The paper had been with the money.

Great location, building, pric....
We read the reviews of people getting robbed here, and while that's awful, why on earth would you EVER leave money lying around?!?! This place is not the cleanest, and the breakfast is just bread, but the coffee and showers are strong and hot. The location is awesome, if you have common sense and are not shocked by working-class neighborhoods (graffiti, garbage, drunks/users....reminded me of NYC honestly). The building itself is old and fabulous, with super high ceilings and beautiful tall French doors on the main floor (where we unfortunately did not stay as we wanted a private room and bathroom) with these cool weird keys that the staff do not explain, but it takes two turns to lock the door. Just lots of Gatsby-era looking antiques and quirk galore. Our room did have a locking wardrobe, but no safe, so we kept our valuables on us. My rating is definitely influenced by the building, location, and price, and knocked down by the hygiene and generally rude staff/fear of getting robbed by staff. There's a young woman and a janitor who work there that were super nice and helpful and did not mind our Mexican-accented Spanish, but I can't say the same for other staff. However, in general, Argentinians are known for being rude, if not altogether racist. So if you still decide to visit Argentina with that knowledge, this is a cool, affordable place to stay in, if you're street smart.

Truly awful experience. Avoid!
Let me start off by saying that I never write bad reviews, but I want to warn people about this place. I'll also point out that I have been backpacking Australia/Asia for over two years now so I have stayed in many, many hostels, guest houses.
This place is 'a joke'. These are the words of the new receptionist at Telmontango Hostel Suites because even she was embarrassed of how we were treated and our experience (she told us that she had worked there for three days and would be quitting because it's a joke).
We are two friends backpacking together. We had just done a 40 hour journey from Indonesia (3 flights and a 2 lay overs) to get to Buenos Aires so we were very, very tired and just wanted to get straight into bed. We had booked a twin room for $46 AUD, which is ridiculously expensive when you see the place (shared bathroom and no breakfast!). We were shown to our room which was tiny and had one bunk bed. We told the receptionist that we had booked a twin room and on the photo it had two separate beds. We wanted a good nights sleep and our own beds. They have many, many bedrooms and we could see that there were 3 twin bedrooms around us that were vacant. The girl called the manager to say that we wanted to swap rooms so that we had our own beds...he refused! He said that for the price we'd paid, we could not move rooms (even though all empty). We argued our point, and eventually our only other option was to move upstairs to a double room (not ideal but at this point we'd be there an hour and couldn't believe the manager would act like this with paying guests).
Once we'd showered and finally got into bed, I noticed that there were long, dark hairs all over my pillow and sheet and top sheet. I then pulled the top sheet all the way back and there was dirt all at the bottom of the bed, from the last persons dirty feet! They had not even changed the sheets since the last guest. What a joke! So we went back downstairs and asked for clean sheets. At this point, they said we could move to another room (ARE THEY KIDDING ME!). By this point, we were close to tears from being so tired. We didn't want to move rooms now that we'd showered and our luggage was open, we just wanted sleep. So....they gave us clean bedding AND WE MADE OUR OWN BED. We literally stripped and re-made the bed completely. From arriving at the hotel to going to bed, this took probably two and a half hours. What an awful place!!! The receptionist looked mortified but had only been there for 3 days...when we told her our bed was dirty, she told us she wasn't surprised!!
Awful place! We then moved 1 min down the road to America deal Sur hostel which is amazing!!

great location, beautiful buil....
Great location. Beautiful clean rooms in an old building. Street noise is quite loud at night. Breakfast is the standard white bread and dulce de leche you'll find everywhere in Argentina. Variable knowledge and helpfulness from staff. We did return one afternoon to find our bags were not as we left them, some small items (cheap souvenir jewellery) and a small amount of money (foreign currency) that had been packed securely away were missing. This was disappointing, as otherwise it is a great place to stay.

I was traveling in Argentina for 4 months, and I tested several Hostels and Hotels. 2 weeks before my departure home, I chose Hostel TelmoTango because it was closer to the Sunday Market on Avenida Defensa. First of all it is a very old building and has no elevator. I'm 66 years old disabled person. I got a room on 1st floor but still gad more than 20 stairsteps to climb. Breakfast oh well, I wouldn't call it breakfast, for the money t hey charge could be a loot better. I did not cook, the kitcehn is very basic, so I purchased cold cuts for myself. I kept it in the refrigerator, and twice in 1 week my food went missing. Horrible place. Also t hey want cash, so the owners won;t have to pay the VAT, the guests have to pay it this way. There is a law in Argentina that foreidn travelers are excluded from paying the VAT if they pay with a foreign CC and show a foreign passport. Noot in this place. Please do ypurself a favor.....DO NOT GO THERE.............For the $50 they charge for a single room (wich actually is 2 twin beds), you can find a 2.5* Hotel. Worst Hostel I stayed in Argentina during my 4 months stay.
