My boyfriend and I went to BA in dec 2013 and then came back in january 2014. The place is amazing! We just loved it! Mauro and Diego are the owners of this amazing place.

This was the start of our travels in Argentina and we received a warm welcome (once we'd found it - not very clear from outside, especially late at night after a long journey!). The hostel was quiet and the room comfortable and spacious. The area was very noisy from the road although it is in central BA so to be... More

The building and the decoration are beautiful. The situation is good as it is not far from a subway station. A bit of noise from the street but we still slept well. Diego is full of useful tips on how to optimize your stay in the city and will help with bookings and such.

I stayed at Elefante Rosa in December 2010. Diego, the owner, was a VERY friendly fellow. His friendliness, combined with his sense of humour, created an exceptional atmosphere. (And on top of that helped me to take some interesting pictures.) Staying at Elefante Rosa in Buenos Aires I felt very good. Like home. Michał Obrębski Warsaw, Poland

Overall an excellent place to stay. Location- only about 2 blocks to the Humberto stop on the yellow line of the metro, with an underground connector to Jujuy on the purple metro line. Make sure to write the number of the hostel down when you are first finding it because it doesn´t have a big sign outside, a pink door... More

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.

I stayed here for about a week and then came back for a night and both times were great. Diego - the host/owner - is really awesome. Very helpful and knowledgeable about BA and the surrounding areas. 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!
