The high quality attention to service certainly does start before you even get here. I asked if I could pay to be collected from the airport. Diego was there waiting for me when my flight arrived from Rio.
Immediately he provided me with all the essential local information I needed, and was happy to provide answers to any questions I had.
The building is full of character. Very nice place to stay for the price. It is a little out of the centre of Buenos Aires, but in my view this is a bonus. Public transport links are good. You have 2 Subte stations on different lines very close.
I stayed in the 6 bed dorm room, and on my first stay I had this room to myself. The second time I was sharing, but with a very nice bunch of people.
You are very close to a busy road and I would recommend bringing some earplugs if you are a light sleeper. Due to the age of the building it would be difficult to soundproof the windows. This would also destroy some of the character of the place.
If I was to return to Buenos Aires I would stay here again.
