Breakfast is a selection of breads and cereals with tea / coffee and some apples (I think?). Wifi is a bit dodgy at times. Rooms are clean, bathrooms are fairly clean too. There's an on site bar with... More

I stayed here for a week and my experience was outstanding! The hostel is large, has a great bar where you can meet people easily, a computer area, a huge kitchen with a balcony AND a terrace on the 5thfloor that overlooks the city. The staff is amazing, friendly, and so helpful! You can tell they are not just working... More

We wanted to take several days to visited Buenos Aires without being rushed. We were almost two weeks at the hostel and we did not even notice. The kitchen and dining area upstairs (2nd floor) is magnificent, unique. Thxs to all the staff.

Everybody there is so helpful, and they really care whether the guests are having a good time and getting to the places that they want to see.

I like the kitchen room (you can cook your own food) and big table to have breakfast and meet other travellers. I appreciated the Big pot of Dulce de Leche for breakfast ! The dorm was confortable...

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
