Really liked this place. Good location, clean rooms and bathrooms. Plenty of travelers and the rooftop bar is really nice. The place has a great vibe and was perfect for getting out and seeing the city. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend staying here!

Everyone on the staff was so helpful! I can't say I've had one bad experience with anyone working there, and I stayed at the hostel for two weeks. The terrace is a highlight and there is always something going on with people outside. I've stayed at many hostels in Europe and I have to say this one is my favorite...

The accommodation was basic, but ticked all the right boxes. The rooms, bathrooms, and common areas were clean and well kept. There were multiple common areas that served well in allowing guests to meet, mingle, and socialise. The atmosphere was very friendly and conducive for making friendships and meeting fellow travellers. The staff too were very friendly, helpful, and professional....

I stayed at the Art Factory at the beginning of a 3 month trip and was a bit dazed upon arrival. The friendliness of the staff was amazing and got into the travel groove quickly. Daily outings/entertainment were terrific too! Great location also!

Great Location, great staff, very helpful and informed, everything can be booked directly in the hostel. We enjoyed the atmosphere a lot, very relaxed, however very professional. We can recommend it and would choose it again.

I was initially concerned with the size of the hostel but it turned out to be the perfect choice. The terrasse was the ideal common space to meet 'your kind' of people. It was not as noisy as I thought either. However, be aware that it is a youth hostel.

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.
