I stayed at Casa Vaiven for a week. The place has decent breakfasts and looks interesting. Perhaps the best thing about it is the staff who go out of their way to find out information and always recommend great places to see, do, or eat. The rooms could've been cleaned more, and one of the upstairs doors needs oil because whenever it was opened or closed, the sound would echo (another reviewer was spot on about the sound in this place). I was glad to bring earplugs. The nieghbourhood is definitely quiet at night, almost eerie quiet with no one around. Casa Vaiven is also steps away from a great live music venue for local bands / dj's called Plasma (on Piedras street) and about a 10 minutes to a friendly parrilla full of locals called La Despensa. For my first stay in Argentina, it was fine.
