Elefante rosa is an excellent base to enjoy buenos aires. Stylish decor good facilities choice of reasonably priced accommodation. Good breakfasts. Next to Jujuy metro 15 minutes from the centre. Buses to Recoleta and Palermo/ Boca and San Telmo stop opposite or within one block. Diego is an excellent host and information source and speaks very good English.

This hostel/hotel is within a block of the subway, so easy to connect for traveling to other parts of the city. The 2 rooms that my family of 3 stayed in faced an inner breakfast/lounging room (no windows). We shared common bathrooms (boys/girls) with the other guests and there was also a small kitchen for cooking, which we took advantage... More

A great 'place to call home' in Buenos Aires. I stayed here several times on a recent trip to Argentina. Diego is an excellent host - very welcoming and ready to help with tips on restaurants, attractions, buses/metro.

He's very genuine and open to interesting conversation about life, Argentina or just about anything else you want to throw at him!! The... More

This was a wonderful place to stay, we had the loft room which was just perfect! Diego was very friendly and helpful, we really felt at home there. The metro is close, so you can get anywhere easily. Strongly recommend staying here when visiting Buenos Aires!

We booked 5 nights at Elefante Rosa and ended up extending our stay by another 3 nights. Diego, the owner, is warm, welcoming and very helpful. We stayed in one of the loft rooms and loved it. Breakfast is simple, but delicious and filling. The location makes it easy to get around as 2 subway lines are just a quick... More

I stayed here for a week in September. The rooms are arranged around a central communal space - full of interesting objects and furniture. Diego was great - full of information if you needed it. The hostel is within walking distance of San Telmo and has 2 metro lines within 5 minutes walk. A great base for exploring Buenos Aires.

This lovely hotel has a lot of great things about it: it is close to the city centre, the rooms are comfortable, the price is great value, it is very clean and located to some nice facilities. However it is the wonderfully helpful owner Diego that goes out of his way to make our stay special. He booked taxis for... More

Having arrived in Buenos Aires after a hideous 24 hour journey, where my baggage had been lost - I was so pleased to have arrived at a hostel with such a courteous host. The owner, Diego, was an absolute gentleman and I don't know what I would of done without him! The hostel is beautiful, clean and comfortable and I... More
