The 10 best hostels in Buenos Aires

How to find the best hostels in Buenos Aires for your trip

We warn you, you are about to find out that barbecues, or asados, are VERY important for Argentinean people. In hostels, they usually take place around the bar and are the perfect opportunity to meet other backpackers who are visiting the city.

While you are not pigging out on BBQ, you might want to visit cool places like Caminito, the lovely streets of San Telmo and the beautiful Casa Rosada. In Buenos Aires there’s also one of the most beautiful libraries of the world, the Ateneo Grand Splendid. It used to be a theatre and they kept the original shape, you’ll love it!

In Buenos Aires there’s amazing street art – you can see some of it in many hostels, but also in the areas of Palermo, Boca, Barracas and Coghlan.

We know that staying in a perfect hostel makes a difference to any trip. That’s why we’ve listened to our backpackers and searched through the reviews to find the best hostels in Buenos Aires. We’ve even classified them, so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
