If your looking for a super modern, minimalist hostel with little personality this is not the place for you. If you're looking for a place with character the Art Factory is simply the best choice. It is a great place to meet new people to explore the city and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. It has a great ambience,...

Stayed 4 nights in a private room with shared bathroom. For the price, the hostel is in a great part of the city. It's easy to plan activities through the hostel, the bed was comfortable. Wifi was reliable and the place was not too loud at night. A basic but good breakfast is included. I'd stay here again.

My two complains were the internet that didn't work properly for most of the time and the beds are really noisy. I woke up every single...

Really cool decor spread all over this unique location. Lots of fun common areas and cool people. Really nice and friendly staff that make it super easy to book day trips and activities. This is a great base camp from which to explore Buenos Aires.

Everyone on the staff was so helpful! I can't say I've had one bad experience with anyone working there, and I stayed at the hostel for two weeks. The terrace is a highlight and there is always something going on with people outside. I've stayed at many hostels in Europe and I have to say this one is my favorite...

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
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.
