Welcome to América Hostel Buenos Aires & El Calafate! Both located in our beloved Argentina. Our lodgings were designed from the beginning to serve the needs of the backpacker and the independent traveller. In 2003 we opened our first Youth Hostel in El Calafate, Province of Santa Cruz, one of the main destinations of Patagonia, where the leading star is the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier. It becomes the starting point to know El Chaltén, where the famous Fitz Roy is, and also the connection to the Chilean Patagonia, to visit the popular Torres del Paine. With incredible views to the Andes and to the Lago Argentino, and at only 10 minutes walking from the centre of the city, you will enjoy beautiful dawns and dusks, that will stay forever in your travelling memories.
Our second hostel was inaugurated in San Telmo neighbourhood, heart and soul of the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, with a privileged location, next to well known tourist spots and means of transport. At only 300 metres from the C Line of the subway, at 300 metres of the 9 de Julio Avenue and at only 700 metres of Puerto Madero.
Since we started with our Hostels we had a very clear objective that always was to give the best of us, our human quality, with a high service of comfort, similar to a Cheap Hotel and being a more affordable option, without forgetting the cleanliness and the quality of the facilities of a Hotel or a traditional lodging house.
Both of our Hostels count with rooms with private bathroom, free internet access, Wi Fi, safety box in the double rooms, radiant heating in Calafate and individual air conditioner in Buenos Aires, TV and telephone in the private rooms in Buenos Aires.
It will be a pleasure for us to help you in our home, and we hope we can act as a guideline for your trip.
