I stayed there for a full week. Maxi, Romi and Gonzalo (the owners) are top notch hosts. The environment is good, they give you the best tips on how to move around Buenos Aires and even invited me to an "asado" on the rooftop terrace. The rooms are more than warm enough at night, warm water, nice place to relax...

On a positive note this place has really good water pressure and lots of hot water. You also get a good breakfast - lots of pastries and the welcome addition of cereal which you don't often get in south american hostels/hotels. It's also quite cheap. Otherwise it's all a bit poor. Location - We arrived around 10:30am on a Saturday...

We stayed there three nights for exploring BA. It is quite good located although not in a really cosy area. The room was small, but very clean and nice. The breakfast was decent though nothing to write home about. All together we had a very nice stay here. Very good price-quality ratio!

A really nice hostel, with marble stairs and beautiful high ceilings, to create a very nice antique style. I first stayed here on my own for 5 nights and was sad to leave...it was very clean, the staff are so friendly and helpful, and there is a good breakfast too. I only left as it was getting a bit pricey...

We have stayed there with our friend for 2 weeks. Therefore, we could have a closer look on how does the hostel work. +location is a BIG plus. In 5 mins you are in the market, or the area of many bars, restaurants and milongas. Perfect for party animals :) However, connection to the airport is more challenging. You can...

My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights there. All the staff were so friendly, honest, and very helpful with our many requests. The building was beautiful with marble stairs and wood detail; very well maintained. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed, which is just what we needed. Not a place to meet people if you're a solo traveler, though.

Stayed for four nights in this charming place. The staff is extremely helpful. Nice advice about we're to go at night etc. Good breakfast. Rooms are a bit small, but very clean. There can be some noise from a rockbar. But hey you're in a big city!

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
