Note: We stayed during a long weekend and it was very crowded. Maybe during normal days is different. I wouldn't know and I speak for my experience. The concept is: a guy with a dirty old house that needs lots of repairs sets up some cheap second hand furniture and opens a hostel. There are 30+ beds in dorms, but... More

El Puesto was a nice place to spend a few days in San Antonio de Areco, Argentina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a suite which was spacious and had a little kitchen. It was very hot when we were there so it wouldve been good to have some air conditioning. The swimming pool and garden... More

The place is ok. However, cleanliness is not a priority and when we went into our room - two big cockroaches ran across the floor; plus, you see spider web in most corners. Sure, cockroaches could be seen on most street but this should not happen. We got a new room and a little discount but the whole experience was... More

Areco is a great place to escape out of busy Buenos Aires. if you arrived to Areco you probably know that there is not a lot to do. mainly relax :) and the best budget relax place for that would be El Puesto hostel.... The pool and the asado next to it are definitely the best part. good music, the... More

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

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
