I've been in this hostel for several times, and I never get tired of it!! The breakfast is really tasty, and the view from the terrace (where at night Gaby runs the Roof Bar) it's one of the best in the whole city... With a laidback vibe, it's a great spot to grab a beer or two, and meet travellers... More

The location is great, the atomosphere is great for meeting people. I like the look of common places. But the rooms are bad. Really run down. I got a 4 bed ensuite, and after a 5 min shower, realise the water flooded into the bedroom. Poor drainage, and leaky seams. Not to mention its so small you can't turn much... More

Stayed for four nights with a friend in a private room. Facilities were ok and on average pretty clean and the rooftop terrace was nice. However, have to say we were left confused by the service more than once. Different people at the reception would tell us different things (e.g. about how to book & pay a late checkout), sometimes...

I stayed in room 407 for 2 nights a few days ago. Realized only after I left that I had bed bug bites all over. I read the review from early January about bed bugs but thought I would just check the mattress when I see the room. I did and didn't see anything so I thought maybe I'd be... More

We’re very sorry about what happened and we’re kind of sad cause during your stay here nobody tell us about it, so we could help you out with your bites and change you to a brand clean room. The truth is that this happens cause we have travellers from all around the world. This type of bugs are very hard... More

Great stay at this cosy and friendly hostel. The kitchen was quite small so you had to pick your time to cook , but it did have 2 fridges - always important in a hostel kitchen! Free cold water machine in the communal areas is a nice touch. Breakfast was included and served on the top floor bar area. It... More

I had a from with private bath, and though it was all pretty basic it was fine for my needs (especially when i realised that the second remote control was for an air conditioning unit I hadn't noticed). Bed was comfortable, and shower was fine. Breakfast was so-so but the roof terrace was a great place to eat it. It's... More

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
