When contemplating your upcoming trip to Buenos Aires, the multitude of accommodation options can seem overwhelming. The trust is that your choice of accommodation is going to play a big part in the type of experience you have here. We have had some students who have run into trouble with their accommodation choices that they made outside of the school. Security can never be 100% guaranteed but the accommodation sources available through Elebaires have been tried and tested, and we also recommend that our students let us assist them with their accommodation. In the coming weeks, Elebaires will be sharing their thoughts and insights into the different accommodation available to you through this blog. First stop… hostels.
With the sheer abundance of travellers making their way through this gorgeous city, the choice of hostels are vast and across a wide range of barrios (neighbourhoods). While you can basically get any type of room you want (private, semi-private, four-bed to sixteen-bed dorms), choosing a hostel is more about you fellow inhabitants. Your Spanish may not get much practice while you are there but you will be meeting people from all around the world (with many interesting travel stories to tell) looking to have fun. If you’re looking for hot travel tips for your onward journey, your fellow travellers will surely have some great advice to give.
Another advantage of staying in a hostel is its affordability. Depending on which area you choose, and of course, which room you choose, a hostel can make your stay in Buenos Aires a lot cheaper!!! The friendly staff in hostels can also advise and help you organize activities that you wish to partake in while you are here.
Hostels also accommodate those travellers who are only in Buenos Aires for a short period of time. It can be a challenge to find private accommodation that is not too rich for your budget and is also temporary.
At Elebaires, we can coordinate a hostel for you so that you don’t have to worry yourself with the overwhelming choice. For this, you can talk to one of us at Elebaires directly or send us an email! If you would like to book a hostel yourself, just go to the bottom of our Accommodation page and enter your arrival date and you will be taken to an online comparison website.
So that’s our take on it. Now let’s hear why some of our students opt for Hostels:
“throughout my time in Buenos Aires I tried a fair few hostels and each of them was individually enriching to my experience in BA!! Being in hostels allows you to meet a great variety of different people, both the locals working there and the myriad of travellers that pass through. The locals are always eager to hear your story and go out of their way to share their knowledge of the city with you. You can also make so many new travelling friends who usually also have invaluable travel tips… which is usually things not mentioned in the Lonely Planet!!”
