Not tourist friendly! It used to be a really nice area but nowadays is a very unsafe neighborhood. The shopping is nice but nothing else. If you want to go to the Carlos Gardel alley, book a tourist guide or a tour. Don't go on...More

just another shopping mall in one of the less desirable barrios. There are many nicer, better located, and more upscale shopping malls. It does have a decent cinema. It is a teen hangout, and if you arrive by taxi you are forced to give your...More

If you like Tango you must visit. Take a picture with Carlos Gardel (most famous Tango singer) You can also visit the Once Mall to buy something from Buenos Aires.

I went to Abasto to visit the Ticketek kiosk in the mall. I then walked around the Jewish part of the neighborhood, stopped in a great Judaica store and then had lunch. Not really worth a special trip.

Over a few years of traveling back and forth from NYC I have stayed in this neighborhood at least three times for more than one or two months. Why? Transport is easy, the Esquina de Gardel is nearby, and Azucar, a salsa studio is here....More

Even though there is a major shopping centre in the area, it's also full of squatters. Don't walk around here at night in particular!

The shooping has good brands and prices. The Hoyts cinema is OK but when you get out of the building, late in the night you have to be careful and watchfull. There are kids staring at your purse and bag all the time. Not to...More

The streets are littered and crowded with rather unpleasant looking people, there are no buildings of architectural value, with the exception of the Abasto Shopping Centre
