Spent there a few night with a couple of friends. It's a nice, rather small hostel located in the heart of Buenos Aires. The conditions aren't that good- it seems like everything is very old and not well maintained. The rooms are a bit small and there is not AC for the hot nights.. BUT- This hostel has one of...

We only stayed one night at this hostel, which has a good location in the centre of Buenos aires. It is a small hostel which seems to get most of its business from travellers who cannot get into Millhouse round the corner. Our six bed dorm was comfortable, clean and had decent lockers. The fan was broken but a free...

Terrible place to stay! The building is decrepit and falling down in places. The staff had no interest in helping us or other travellers and were downright rude at times. Smoking is allowed in the hostel which means it is in a constant haze of smoke which filtered into our room.Our private room had dirty walls, floor and bathroom. The...

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
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.
