I'm from Buenos Aires and I think you will be fine. But being that young it would be useful to know a bit of Spanish, not being naif and learning something about the city and it's particular ways before coming here. I would recommend you to rent and apartment / hotel room in touristic areas (such as Palermo, San Telmo, etc.). Buenos Aires is a lovely city, but really very very big.

It's a great city, but you should be careful anyway. I've just been there and if you walk around too tourist-looking you may attract the attention of some pickpockets. Be aware of your stuff and your surroundings and you should be fine.

Just stick with others form your hostel at night. During the day you'll be fine. try avoid carring handbags of big camara's that can easily be taken. It;s a great city, enjoy!

Thanks for the answer! :) Yeah, I'll have studied Spanish for 6 years when/if I go there so hopefully won't be a problem! :) Is it possible to rent an apartment being only 18?

Not a 100% sure, maybe rent an apartment somewhere (like Palermo)and just see the town and the surroundings like Mar Del Plata, Iguazu Falls, Bariloche... Not sure I'll go when I'm 18, perhaps later, but still.
