This is a wonderful B & B. I traveled to BA by myself and Diego helped me with everything. He responded to all of my emails prior to my departure and was extremely helpful all week as I planed visits to the opera, museums, markets, and sites. The rooms are hip and beautiful and everything is clean. As a solo... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 1 which is two stories and has a private bathroom. It is a very nice space with exposed brick and cool eclectic touches like art deco lamps. It definitely felt more like a hotel than a hostel and it was at an unbeatable price. Plus, it's super close to the subway. Additionally, I... More

El Elefante Rosa is a lovely place to stay. Diego is really friendly, and I felt like I was at home, enjoying the long breakfasts and getting interesting tips about where to go in Buenos Aires. The local area is really interesting, with some great places to eat, and is far enough away to escape the tourist bustle of the... More

We stayed in this hostel for almost a week. We really enjoyed this small but very nicely renovated hostel. It is clean and well equipped and Diego, the host, makes you feel really welcome. The Boedo neighourhood, might be less popular than San Telmo or Palermo, but it was actually really nice. Less touristic, but with sufficient restaurants, supermarkets etc.... More

We stayed at Elefante Rosa for two weeks in the twin bed room and had a really lovely time. The hostel is in an old building, with a nice, tranquil atmosphere. It was very clean, I really liked the bathroom setup, and the kitchen was well-equipped. The included breakfast was also very good, with homemade jam! The beds were just... More

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.
