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.

HI - Buenos Aires - HI Milhouse Hostel
"Milhouse is a centrally located, fantastic party hostel where you will feel guilty for sleeping! Music is on 24-hours a day and there are always people up wanting to talk, dance, watch a movie, cook up a meal etc. The atmosphere is therefore extremely social! Every morning, the staff makes a list of important activities for the day, including walking tours and special events around the city. They do a great job informing you of what is hot in...
HI - Buenos Aires - Hostel Inn Buenos Aires
"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...
Hostal de Granados

El Sol Hostel - Recoleta
"El Sol was the best place I could have wished to stay in. The owners were so nice! All the tenants were great, the location was great, and the building was beautiful. El Sol was different because it felt more like a home and less like a hotel. It was the only hostel I could find that made me feel this way. If you are going to be travelling for a long time I would recommend El Sol. It is not luxurious and fancy, so if you are looking for a...
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...
HI - Buenos Aires - St Nicholas Hostel
"This place has a great, fun staff, and an awesome rooftop terrace to kick back on with a few beers and meet other travellers. There's a nice common area downstairs as well. Contrary to what the description says, this place does not have a restaurant, pub, pool table or darts board! These things are available in other places nearby, though. Cool mix of travellers here - not quite the party crowd of the Millhouse Hostel, but definitely a fun...

The staff is very...
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.

Even thought the rooms...
"We loved it! - Estoril was our (four girls) first hostel on our trip in Argentina. And we loved it. It is very clean, the staff is friendly, location perfect, the orange juice in the morning is yummy, and the sofa is a dream. (Thought about taking it with us back to Germany.)

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...

"This was my first trip to South America, let alone Argentina. The location of this hostel is in a posh, upscale, fun area of Buenos Aires. The hotel staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and worth the $10 dollars per night in a brand new place. I felt completely safe, and it was easy to check my e-mail, since it was free. I had a great time here, and would recommend it to all!!" … "I love, love, love this hostel. We have been travelling...
"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...

"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...

We had asked to take advantage of the airport transfer service but despite sending through the details of the flight 2 months in advance no one was waiting to collect us when we arrived and we ended up having to get a taxi to the hostel. When we arrived it looked like it had closed down. We rang the door bell twice with no...

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.
