Downtown & Congreso


Downtown BA could be a good option for those not spending too much time in the city because you’d be closer to the main sites. As any other downtown in the world, please expect a lot of noise, a lot of people and empty streets at night. This area might be quiet during the weekends too but during the week it’s an excellent opportunity for people watching!


With a beautiful view of the legendary “Avenida de Mayo” the Alkimista hostel might not be the fanciest but certainly the homiest option in the area.

The onda: small and quiet, this is a good place to enjoy long chats over a few drinks and good music, avoiding the big crazy parties.

Hostel Clan

Their friendly staff certainly makes the difference in this hostel.
Young employees with not only loads of experience in the hostel industry but loads of knowledge of the city and what’s going on in each corner of it.

Milhouse Hostel

This is probably the most popular hostel in town. Though it was one of the first hostels to open in Buenos Aires, it’s still offering fun and professional service.
Through these last 5 years they have polished their social and party reputation. From salsa and tango dancing to soccer matches and parties, there’s something every day of the week and on weekends, the staff take guests by minivan to BA’s hottest nightclubs, even kicking down VIP passes for many of the clubs.
If you are looking for an intense social scene with loads of activities, this is the place to be.
