This hostel is at a great location in a charming city. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was a plus after a hot day exploring. Sal's tips on exploring town were helpful and she clearly puts a lot of energy into this family business. For simple, reasonably priced accommodation with a pleasant atmosphere and some perks (pool+ a/c),... More

El Puesto is well situated in San Antonio and given that it is a small town, everything is within walking distance. The hostel provides a map of things that are worth visiting in the area and the chocolateria is an absolute must! After taking the first bite, you will not leave there without a few more! As for the hostel,... More

This place is wonderful. Whether you need a rest from the craziness of Buenos Aires, or just want a break (and a nice shower) in the middle of a longer journey, I can't recommend El Puesto enough. It is a warm and welcoming place. The rooms are clean and bright, with incredibly high ceilings. The comfortable common room opens onto... More

Sal & Felipe the owners are absolutely lovely and will help you with anything you need to know including the best steak restaurant, ice cream, gift shop and defiantly where the best empanadas are...

El Puesto is a great place to choose. I've been there twice and I would go there everytime I go to Areco! Sal & Felipe (the owners) are really nice people and they made me feel at home, literally. The hostel is clean, cozy and nicely decorated, with a common area, kitchen, and a nice garden with a pool (an... More

El Puesto is perfectly situated just a few blocks from the Omnibus station in one direction and the center of town in the other. Our party of 6 in total stayed for two nights. The first night the hostel was only partially booked leaving plenty of space in the cozy common areas and kitchen for a home cooked meal, relaxing,... More

Very good hostel. Clean kitchen, clean rooms, clean bathrooms, good wifi. There is a very nice atmosphere, above average breakfast, friendly staff. We had a doible room, shared bathroom. Room was spacious, we had to put the sheets on the bed ourselves, which I disliked. That was pretty much the only thing. There is a swimming pool, but we were... More

El Puesto is in a good San Antonio location and provides a basic hostel experience. Owners are nice enough and rooms fairly spacious. We were there in low season, so it was not crowded. I have no idea how only two showers/bathrooms can accommodate a full house. The kitchen and bathrooms were marginally clean. Breakfast was just OK - plain... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay here with us. We would like to inform you that your ice pack is still here in the freezer where you left it. In 3 years of having the hostel, we have never had an incident of theft! Our breakfast to be fair is more complete than... More

There are many "upscale" places to sleep in San Antonio de Areco but not many "affordable" places. However, when I was there (a month ago) I found a very nice hostal. It is called "El Puesto" and is just a few blocks from the center of town. It is run by a very nice married couple (he is Argentinian, she... More

My boyfriend and I spent a night here in May 2013. We had a private double room which was really big and had a hotel quality mattress. The hostel is within walking distance of everything in San Antonio de Areco (which admittedly isn't hard as the town is so small!). We didn't meet the owners but the staff member on... More
