when i travelled europe 2 years ago my only not-enjoyable experience was arriving in each new city and having to find a hostel (which included figuring out the local phone surprises and people haning up upon being asked if they spoke english... fully booked scenarios happened as well but not too often)

ill be landing in buenos aires and would love to spend my first few hours there walking the city instead of stressing out at the airport.
should i prebook? Reply to this

I didnt pre book any when I went to S. America but that was before places could be conveniently prebooked on the internet.
If the good priced places are prebookable on the internet I would do that.

Yep, certainly for the first place you are going to. BA especially is such a big place, you don't want to be wandering around trying to find a hostel all day.
We stayed at and really liked the "Garden House" hostel - google should find it. But I am sure that your guide book will have lots more suggestions too.
Have fun!
