Overall my experience at Vamos was very nice. I knew some Spanish before and I was placed at a class that I felt was right for my level. Even though we had 5 of us in the class, I still had a lot of chances...More

We (my girlfriend and I) took spanish lessons at vamos for about 4 weeks. While she already had some knowledge I came as a complete beginner. So the academic director suggested group lessons for me and private classes for her. Even though the private classes...More

First, reading through some of these other reviews, there must be massive variation between teachers and classes at the school or some of the reviews are less than genuine. I attended classes at Vamos for a week, 4 hours/day for 5 days. I would say...More

Characterized by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment

turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude

Hostels in Palermo? (2 Replies)
Hi all. I'm going to be in BsAs for a month attending a language school (Vamos Spanish Academy) and I'm wanting to stay in Palermo, where the school is located. However, all the hostels in the Palermo that I'm finding have pretty bad reviews. Has anyone had a good experience with a hostel in the Palermo area? There has to be some decent ones seeing how it's such a big travel destination for tourists. Thanks

Which Palermo ? There is Botanico, Soho, Hollywood ... I only remember of a couple of hostels in Recoleta that were not given horrible reviews, but that was some time ago and I don't know the names. . Frankly, I think renting a studio apt in BA would be preferable to staying in a hostel in BA.
Spanish schools (and is payment before arrival normal?) (10 Replies)
I'm travelling to Buenos Aires in June and July, and am hoping to do at least 4-5 weeks of spanish studies. I'm a total beginner, so my plan is to learn some spanish, and then travel a bit in Argentine. I just checked out a school called Vamos Spanish Academy, have any of you had any experience with this school? The prices seem ok, they have several extra activities, and they seem very helpful (they even have an airport pickup service, which is definitely something I appreciate). But...More

Getting to any address in BA from the airport is quite easy by taxi or remise,which is a private car service, either of which can be arranged at the arrivals area . Finding a place to stay online is very easy at any price range. There are MANY reputable schools where you can learn Spanish. I think that it would be very foolish to pay in advance for any service or accommodation. Possibly a small deposit. What they consider as "fabulous", you may consider as a dump. There are con artists in...More
