Good hostel. Easy location (1 hour from airport with express bus which costs no more than 7.50 pesos!!) nice clean rooms and good hot water. Wifi strong and overall a good place if you want to just take Buenos Aires at your own pace

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were good too - we had two different double rooms, one was much bigger than the other but both fine. Good amount of breakfast as well. Didn’t expect housekeeping which was an extra bonus.More

Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires,

took place there and the landmarks that have stood the

back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the

Hey everyone, just a question on how to get there from the airport (EZE international) Does the shuttle bus go right to the door or drop you somewhere nearby? Also, is it better to book the shuttle in advance? I arrive tomorrow morning :)
