The only thing good about this place is that it's super cheap. If you just need somewhere to sleep (or try to sleep) and you don't care about anything else, then you should stay here. The location is alright, but that's about it. They only give breakfast to the VIP guests, but don't worry- you aren't missing much. The water... More

There where the location of the hostel is good (in the center and close to the metro) The rooms are dirty and clearly not cleaned on a daily basis. The mattreses are worn out and make that I...

Unpleasant, dirty, no upkeed, no room service, no blankets or towells included on cost, no cleaning service on Sundays! They're abusively unfair in their website, where they say they offer a "preferential" service: neither description nor pics match the real place. Absolutely disadvantageous and uncomfortable. Despite it's cheap you'll find better choices for similar $$.

I've never been to a worse hostel than La Rocca. If you want a dirty place, dirty rooms and dirty kitchen, you should visit La Rocca. The staff really rude, they were drinking and smoking all day long and didn't care about the guests' needs. I had the chance to communicate my disatisfaction to the owner of the place: he... More

I stayed at La Rocca in downtown (I think they have another one in Palermo as well) while I was still looking for an apartment. I ended up staying almost a month and it was perfect. It had everything I could have asked for- right in front of the Callao Subte station, and a few steps away from my favorite... More

My stay at La Rocca was awesome - I met loads of travelers from around the world including heaps from South America which was helpful for practicing a bit of the old espanol - the location was brilliant, staff were nice enough and the rates were really cheap - highly recommend!

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
