About Buenos Aires
Step aside, New York ... THIS is the city that never sleeps! Buenos Aires fairly crackles with electricity as it hums with activity both day and night. It offers an endless array of diversions, and its varied and fascinating neighborhoods mean you’ll never run out of places to wander.
This city of 13 million people -- the largest in Argentina – is a complex and fascinating place. Arriving at the immense and chaotic Retiro bus station from calmer destinations may make your head spin, and multiple lanes of traffic whizzing past at high speed will have you approaching intersections with caution. If you’ve just arrived from the laidback tropical ambience of Iguazú, or from the vast empty stretches of Patagonia, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the frenetic pace at first.
However, if you’re like most visitors to the Paris of the South, once you've checked into your Buenos Aires hostel you’ll quickly grow to love this city. Innumerable museums catering to every interest and passion are scattered throughout the city. There’s usually a soccer or football game being played somewhere (live or on TV) if you’d rather check out the beautiful game and the city’s legendary football fanatics. You can wander the market in the colonial streets of San Telmo where many Buenos Aires hostels are located, or check out a tango show in the colorful working-class neighborhood of La Boca; further afield, Palermo’s vast open green spaces beckon you to spend a day outdoors, or the upscale glitz of Recoleta may beguile you as you make your way to Evita’s grave in its famous cemetery.
For an easy day trip, you can choose to take a ferry over to Colonia, Uruguay from your Buenos Aires hostel and enjoy its 16th-century cobblestoned charm, or head out to one of the peaceful suburbs such as Tigre, with its attractive canals and backwaters.
Most Buenos Aires hostels are found in the microcentro, near the Plaza de Mayo, or in neighboring San Telmo. The efficient and cheap Subte, Buenos Aires’ comprehensive subway network, will take you just about anywhere you need to go.

Hostel Inn Buenos Aires - San Telmo Hostel
"Hostel Inn Buenos Aires is located in the St. Telmo district of Buenos Aires within five minutes walk of the San Juan Subte underground train station. The building may be a little difficult to find, as the signage is subtle and not immediately evident from the street. When trying to find it, have the address handy -- it's number 820 -- and ring the buzzer to be let in when you find it. The hostel is affiliated with Hostels International and...

Garden House Hostel
"Excellent hostel -- best that I've been to in South America. Smaller hostal with great common area condusive to meeting other travellers of all age ranges. Also great for couples as most double rooms are located a floor below the living area and kitchen and are a bit quieter. Book exchange, movie library, excellent location next to the subway so even though its a bit outside of the more touristy areas, its an easy seventy centado ride to...
El Sol Hostel - Recoleta
"Way better than I expected - I had a blast staying at el sol hostel in October of '09. The owner was great, and very helpful. The upstairs patio at night is the best!!

It's located at a busy intersection, but the noise is not too bad. Fantastic location. I will visit again." … "Considering it´s a hostel,...
Milonga Youth Hostel
"Ok, needs work - The first time I stayed here I stayed in the Carlos Gardel room, which was nice, but a bit cold (I'm here in winter), and the bathroom has a door to a balcony which was IMPOSSIBLE to close due to some malfunction with the door's hardware. Did I mention it was winter? The room had a cheap TV with about... 3.5 channels. On my next visit, I stayed in the Martín Fierro room, which was not the best. The toilet had been used but...
Sandanzas Cultural Hostel
"Sandanzas is a wonderful hostel. It is small (26 beds) and has a fantastic atmosphere. One of the main reasons for this is the staff. The hostel is owned and run by a collective of five young Argentinean travelers, all of whom are very friendly, helpful, and speak English. The hostel has only been open a couple of years and the rooms and bathrooms are modern and clean. There is 24 hour hot water. There are a few communal dorm rooms as...

"Loved Pampa Hostel! - I stayed here for over a week and loved it. The staff is very friendly and makes the place inviting, like being at home. It was very clean, had a nice patio on the rood, and while area of town is far away from the city center, it's a great (safe!) place in its own regard. My only complaints were the breakfast being boring and not really offering much in the way of protein, and a staff member came into the rooms in the...
Portal del Sur
"Near hotel quality in a central location, Portal del Sur is the perfectly comfortable home base for exploring Buenos Aires' intense personality -- a five star establishment! Getting there If you're new to Buenos Aires and just got off a long flight into the international airport, your best bet for finding the hostel is to take the Manuel Leon (Lion) bus shuttle from the airport. Tell the agent or driver you'd like to get the...

The Location The central location of this hostel is value for money on...
Telmotango Hostel Suites
"Hot and deserted - I should preface this review by saying that when I was staying here Buenos Aires was in the middle of a heat wave, and it was about 37-38 degrees each day. The hostel doesn't claim to have air conditioning and doesn't, so that's fine, but the rooms also don't have particularly big windows (some don't have any) and the fans therefore succeed in making a lot of noise and moving hot air around the room. The windows in my room...
"Chill House is a cool, funky hostel, well located in Buenos Aires. The energetic and high-quality staff are friendly, outgoing, and available at all times for information about the city and any other guest needs. In addition to Spanish, the staff are fluent in English and French. The hostel is secure, with front-door entry only possible after first buzzing in from the street. Strong Wi-Fi is available throughout the hostel, including the...
Che Lagarto Hostel Buenos Aires
"Still a work in progress. It's in a new location, and not all the rooms are finished. The single rooms are extremely barren and look like converted closets, with residents having to use the bathroom of a shared eight-bed dorm (in addition to the dorm residents — different approach). Twin rooms are ok with full bathrooms but they face onto a very noisy street. Fans would be a good addition. Hot water was nonexistent, but unnecessary in...
Pangea Hostel Buenos Aires
"The best you can ever find!!! Me and my friends were the first guests in this beautiful hostel!!! We were welcomed with open arms by the coolest owners of the place that later became our friends. The guys that run the place will help you with any problem that will appear and will help you to get along in the first days in the city. They took us to parties, to a football match and helped us a lot. And I didn't say anything yet about the hostel...

"Ostinatto Hostel is situated on the edge of the hip San Telmo district. There is a great little supermarket very near to the hostel and the launderette next door is very cheap. The hostel is a quiet, non-party hostel. There is no smoking in the hostel -- a godsend for those that don't smoke. They allow smoking on the balcony. There is supposed to be a non-drinking policy too, but the odd bottle of wine or two for a civilised drink goes...
Vi Luz y Entré
"… best things of Buenos Aires. It's located in a tradicional "porteño" neighbourhood, Balvanera- where neighbour still have "mate" outside their home at sunset. However, Vi Luz y Entré is really close to the city's light, main avenues, and political centre, with all the cultural and entertainment activities that Buenos Aires offers to the visitors. Vi Luz y Entré is the perfect combination of living in a quite neighbourhood, although...
Hostel San Telmo
"Out of the five hostels we've visited in Buenos Aires, this was the best for meeting people who were looking for more than parties and drugs. People were constantly coming and going, even in the off-season. It's only one block from the subway. They have several new computers in the common area. They have several bilingual employees. It's right next to a bunch of great San Telmo restaurants. And it's among the cheapest hostels. However,...

"Very poor hostel - I booked this hostel for 2 nights after reading good reviews on the internet. Booking a room was not easy as when I called I was told to send an email and when I emailed I received no reply. I then had to call again to get them to confirm that my emailed booking was ok. At arrival they only had the room at the rate I had booked (private double with shared bathroom) for 1 night but I was offered a more expensive room for the...
Palermo Soho Hostel
"Not worth the money - I stayed at this hostel for five nights due to an emergency. I needed to fly back home and needed a nearby, nice, cheap place to stay. Like others who write the reviews in here, I checked in based on the photos on the internet. Overall, the place is kind of nice. The living room, the balcony, dining room, patio, it's cute. However, the rooms are a disaster. I asked for a private room with a private bathroom and they gave...

Buenos Aires Travel Tips & Suggestions
I lived in Buenos Aires for six months and I truly fell in love with the people, the cafes, and the whole experience. The city itself is a great mixture of European style and Spanish mannerisms and traditions. The language "Castellano" is a beautiful language that sounds like Spanish and Italian. You must experience an authentic asado (steak) grill out somewhere. You must find your favorite cafe and restaurant and sit and eat amazing food, drink the best coffee, and people watch. Also, embrace the life of the people -- go to dinner late, go and dance even later! After all Buenos Aires has Mate tea and Medealunas (sweet croissants) to energize your entire day!
The central Buenos Aires is the heart of the city. Recoleta is a boring place where all you see is cars passing, embassies, and rich Argentinians paying twice what you would pay anywhere else in the city for a lunch that is pretty much the same. Same thing happens with Palermo, except for a couple spots that are good for shopping and having a beer. Downtown is not unsafe at all. Anyway don't be scared in Buenos Aires or pretty much anywhere in South America -- people say a lot of crap but you only discover the places by digging deep inside them, so go ahead and use your common sense.
I lived in Buenos Aires for three months. The cute train up to Tigre offers a nice day trip but not much more, jump out at the odd beach or shopping mall. I'd recommend staying in Palermo or Recoleta as they're a bit more like suburbs. Don't stay in Central, it's full of beggars, crap food, and you can feel a bit unsafe, similarly with San Telmo. It's cheaper to get a taxi to Desnivel in san Telmo, eat and return than it is to eat in Central, and the food in central is tourist rubbish. These are the places you'd visit, but getting taxis is easy and they're cheap. Argentinians prefer salsa and Reggaeton, Tango (and Evita) is namely for tourists (try it in San Telmo or watch it in a cafe in La Boca). Never go to La Boca at night. And the newest barrio, Puerto Madero is a bit cold (and pricey in US dollars) and dull, like Canary Wharf in England, but it is close to the park where you can hire a bike which is a nice break from a crazy city. If you have time, take the buquebus across the river to Colonia, the most beautiful place I've ever seen, and it's very safe too.
I loved San Telmo. It was vibrant and cultural with great cafes and excellent restaurants and of course it is the home of Tango. I spent two weeks there and it became home from home.
Tigre and Delta is one of the best attractions of Argentina -- nature, great architecture, and cool places. I live ten minutes away from Tigre and I love it. It's a unique landscape. The world has few deltas, Tigre is one of them, and this has urban area, ecological area with thousands of rivers, and nautical sports -- rowing and yachting among them. If you don't like the nature, you can to go at the Parque de la Costa (funfair/amusement park) -- it's one of the greatest in South America. Don't forget to walk on the Paseo Victoria promenade -- a street on the coast of the river. The place has many historical clubs of rowing, the Argentine maritime museum, where you can watch the naval history through model scale ships, and an amazing, really wonderful art museum on the historic palace, with a balcony that crosses over the street and to the river. Don't forget to travel to Tigre on Tren de la Costa (tourist train) -- a cool ride through the river de la Plata coast, the surroundings of the north side of Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is amazing! We spent a week there and were completely entertained. Don't miss Recoleta. The food and shopping are fantastic -- and cheap. Do not waste a day going to Tigre -- it's boring.
