The hostel was really nice. Lots of artwork everywhere and a 4 bed dorm didn't feel cramped. The kitchen was okay, not the best but still had most things. No freezer or blender though! Nice staff and would definitely stay again. Location is brilliant.
We spent 4 nights in total in Art Factory Hostel in San Telmo.
Staff members were friendly, the local areas very pleasant and the breakfast was good.
Unfortunately, we were disappointed by the bedroom (a private one). It smelt moisture inside, because the only window...More
My wife and I arrice to Buenos aires around 3 am in the morning. Unfortunatly, our host did not allow us at our Airbnb that early nor did they allow us to leave our baggage with them. That's how we came across the art factory...More
This hostel was okay. I like the location and its style. Room was good too. I like the breakfast. But the bathroom was very tiny and not clean. Staff was rude and didn't provide correct information. It seems they didn't like when we ask something.

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 neighbourhood 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.
