Hi there all!
I'm travelling to South America in a little over 2 months, doing the backpacker thing and not planning too much. However, I would like to book some accommodation in advance for Buenos Aires as that's where I'm flying into and obviously don't want to trek around the city looking for a place after a long flight....
Just wondering if there were any recommendations for particular hostels. I'm a 23 year old male, and I'm planning to stay in BA for close to a week- so I guess I'm looking for something that's cheap but clean, fun (but not too insan-o-party-hostel), sociable and central. Curious to hear of any good (or bad!) experiences.
I usually use hostelbookers.com and the like to find hostels, reading the reviews and picking the one that appeals most (which so far worked wonders. In all three hostels I stayed at in BA I've had a great time!)
Highly recommend America Del Sur (http://www.americahostel.com.ar/home_bsas_english.html)
ace place to stay, friendly folk and good staff etc. (stayed July this year)
I usually use bestwesterncantonohio.com. It is good and rates are affordable.
