 The impressive interior of Iglesia San Francisco.

The city of Salta, Argentina, also known as Salta La Linda (Salta the Beautiful), is known to be a locals' favorite in Argentina. Located in northwestern Argentina, around four hundred kilometers to the Bolivian border to the north and two hundred fifty kilometers to the Chilean border to the west, Salta is a popular stopover along the Gringo Trail through South America. When staying at hostels in Salta, Argentina, you'll meet a fun mix of foreign travelers as well as plenty of local Argentinians, many of them Porte√Īos, heading from Buenos Aires to spend a long weekend in Salta to explore the region.

Housing a popular university of twenty thousand students, Salta is a lively and colorful town that is sure to impress. A dramatic blend of different architectural styles from around the world line the low-lying streets, offering outstanding views on nearly every city block. Salta also offers many attractions in town, including the Museum Arqueolog√≠a de Alta Monta√Īa (MAAM) that is home to three mummified children who are said to be the most well-preserved mummies on the planet. You can also take a free walking tour from the center of Plaza 9 de Julio to learn the ins and outs of Salta's fascinating history. There is also a lively daily market at Mercado San Miguel, where you can buy cheap fruits and vegetables as well as local eats at the upstairs food court. Just be prepared to be bombarded with offers for cheap milanesa (a breaded chicken dish) and muzzas (a pizza dish). Don't be afraid to say "No, gracias," and do your own looking around for the best spot.

A bright nightlife scene (naturally commencing post-midnight and never ending before 5 a.m.) is prominent in Salta. Head to Balcarce Street anytime after midnight for a thrilling opportunity to see plenty of live music; dance your face off in clubs; and sip Salta's own Cerveza Negra while chowing down on those famous Sante√Īa empanadas, said to be the best in all of Argentina.

If you're interested in getting a good view of the city, you can take to the sky on the Teleférico, Salta's own gondola that takes you three hundred fifty meters up to the peak of San Bernardo park. You also have the option to scale the more than a thousand steps up to the top, which offers a great workout for visitors and locals alike. If you head up for sunset on a clear day, you are guaranteed panoramic vistas of the town and surrounding landscapes, joining the many others at the top of the Cerro that had a similar plan. Allow at least forty-five minutes before the sunset if walking and fifteen minutes for the gondola.

Salta is also a great base camp for travelers looking to further explore the region of northwest Argentina, offering many day tours to popular towns such as Humahuaca (home of the mountain of fourteen colors, Hornacal), Pumamarca (Cerro de los Siete Colores), Cafayate (stunning wine-country and home of some of the most beautiful driving in Argentina along the Quebrada de las Conchas), museum-filled Cachi, or the grand salt flats of Salinas Grandes. Tours leave daily and there are many rental car options in town, as well.

When looking for a place to stay in Salta, there are plenty of options. There is a good range of hostels in Salta, Argentina, from low-priced budget options to mid-range and higher-end hostels in Salta, Argentina. If you're looking for a guaranteed good time, search for Salta, Argentina hostels near Balcarce Street, meaning that it will be only a short stagger to get you to the best party in town. Looking for something closer to the bus station so that you can easily catch that midnight bus to San Pedro de Atacama or up to the Bolivian border? Not to worry, the cheapest Salta, Argentina hostel options in town are within minutes of the bus station and offer affordable and comfortable accommodation. Because of the large influx of local Argentinians that come to Salta on the weekend, be sure to book ahead if you're staying for just Friday and Saturday night, as Salta, Argentina hostels fill up quickly, especially in the summer.
