You could hear all the street traffic through the window and people were not friendly. Breakfast was typical, bread and jam. The rooms are spacious but...

I have been travelling for over 4 months and this has got to be one of the worst, if not THE worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The dorm that I was assigned to, though admittedly clean, had old, stained mattresses and thinning pillows that had definitely seen better days. I was given linen and left in my room....

I stayed here for a week when I first got to Buenos Aires and loved it. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. They speak good English but they always want to help people with their Spanish so they'll patiently listen to your pidgin Spanish- no matter how long it may take you to form a sentence! Beds are comfortable...

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
