I had a great experience at El Puesto. Big, clean rooms, nice breakfast and pool. Felipe, the owner was so nice and helpful. I could have stayed forever. The perfect place if you want to spend a few days in Areco.

We had a lovely stay in San Antonio de Areco, it is the most adorable village! El Puesto Hostel definitely has the makings for a great hostel in high season but is a little deserted in the low. Breakfast is very basic and could be improved. The facilities were clean but there were a lot of marks on the White... More

This was the perfect hostel to stay in while visiting San Antonio de areco. The owner and his wife were so welcoming and helpful. We stayed on a Monday and Tuesday night so the town and hostel were very quite. The owner helped organise a 'dia Del campo' for us, recommended good bars and restaurants and kindly dropped us to...

Really great place to stay. The owner was welcoming and so was the space. The kitchen was great and easy to use, I really enjoyed the pool, and we stayed in the private room which was really nice for a hostel. I recommend this for anyone going to San Antonio de Areco!

El Puesto was in a great location, centrally located in the beautiful streets of Areco. The hostel had a comfortable, warm feel and we felt very welcomed by Filipe! We made use of the great swimming pool and backyard. The double room was clean and inviting and provided enough privacy for us. Filipe helped us organise a trip out of... More

First of all ignore what the reviews say about needing a taxi to get to there - it's a 12 minute walk (we timed it!) San Antonio de Areco isn't massive anyway but the hostel is in a really good location, just a few minutes from the main square. You can rent bikes for free from the tourism office there... More

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
