Argentina > Capital Federal District > Buenos Aires > Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to
and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied
by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.

Not good but not terrible. Rooms are ok but have giant windows with no curtains so are very bright. The air con points right in your face. Wifi doesnt work in the upstairs rooms, you have to go downstairs and connect to the 'downstairs'wifi. Breakfast...More

The staff was friendly and super helpful, and our private room was average. The kitchen wasn't the cleanest I have seen, but you can't expect much for the price in such a fancy neighborhood. The location was excellent. Good vibe at the hostel.
