This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Cafayate.

Cafayate, Argentina, manages to be both a popular tourist destination and a peaceful small town at the same town. It’s Argentina’s second major centre of wine production (after Mendoza) and known for its crisp, fruity white torrentés. There are several hostels in Cafayate to choose from.

Just a few hours south of much-larger Salta by bus, Cafayate makes an excellent stopping point for travellers on their way south or north through Argentina, as well as a wonderful destination in its own right. With bodegas dotted in and around town, there’s no shortage of opportunities to sample the best wines the region has to offer – which extend to some fine reds as well as the more famous whites.

To work off all those wine calories, the countryside around Cafayate also offers lots of reasons to get outside and get active &em; from the spectacular Quebrada de Cafayate with its eerie twisted landscapes, to the largest pre-colonial ruins in Argentina at Quilmes, just over the border in Tucuman province. Tour agencies and bike rental places can be found all around the main square, so you’ll have no trouble organizing any activities.

Hostels in Cafayate are plentiful, with a range of prices to suit any budget. The Cafayate hostels are located within walking distance of the main square, where the buses from Salta let passengers off, and offer the usual Argentinian amenities of lockers, free Wi-Fi and internet, hot showers, and breakfast. Some will also help you organize excursions or bus tickets onwards to your next destination.

There is no central bus station, but bus company offices are located within walking distance of the main square, where most buses also depart (within walking distance of any hostel in Cafayate).
