          Cambalache is loud, dirty, and uncomfortable. Basically it's got everything I typically try to avoid in a hostel, except that it's one of the cheaper options in Buenos Aires. On the plus side, though, the staff were nice and the location was good. I would...More

          San Nicolas
          Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the
          footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area
          of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the
          true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down
          streets lined with office buildings and banks. The
          financial district is well-known for its vibrant
          atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours.
