Itinerary Overview

I arrived in Federal Capital at my brother's house, then I looked for hostels where I could stay, I had no idea of the existence of hostels until that moment, I lived in a hotel and got a job that allowed me to have my place among so many buildings, I could achieve that feeling of belonging as long as I dedicated myself to that goal or project.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    It would have changed many things, only that the destination or the walk said it had to be, it is not easy to reach a great capital the rhythm, its noises, perhaps it is repetitive with this, it is the sensation that one feels, in going after that opportunity and to have everything within reach.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    I try not to go out a lot at night to walk, if I choose and recommend uber, Cabify, didi since the distances are long and the waiting for buses sometimes lonely.

  • How was the food?

    If it comes to eating in Buenos Aires you will find all the variety, from the Guerrin pizzeria, the community fairs in Plaza Congreso, San Telmo on Sundays. BellaGamba for the Cafe. In the Palermo area there are still lifes and there they make typical and very rich food.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    In summer bring repellent and light clothing, it is easy to use the bus card and SUBE subway, in winter a coat.

  • Packing tips?

    The ritual is always the same, we carry the hot water and our Mate everywhere.

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you come from the interior of the country, arriving from Ezeiza or Aeroparque, which are the Bunos Aires airports, there are shuttles that transport you, Uber is also very popular, Taxi can be found in many corners of the city and they are reliable. The buses are 24hs-

  • Any surprises?

    In my days in Capital they are all a surprise, a tango to dance and a hug in each mate.

  • Booking details?

    La Rocca Hostel - Av Callao 341. Reception 24hs


  • The neighborhood Congreso as we say or really San Nicolas had everything I needed at my fingertips, from shops, supermarkets, pharmacies and the subway line that connects me with the entire city, friends that I made in the capital and beautiful anecdotes. My first hotel "Downtown Mate" was somewhat expensive for the beginning, unfortunately I did not have breakfast but it was in a room without bathroom in a sextuple room. When time passed I moved to an apartment in the Recoleta area, I shared a flat with a friend Jimmy from Canada. My friend was a Biochemist and he was studying and working for a company, it is very common in Buenos Aires to find people who share by exchange, in the routine we met a lot because of our schedules but we shared the weekends. We finished that contract and I went to the San Nicolas area again, on Av. Callao there is a Hostel "La Rocca" one of the noblest parts to the right you can see the National Congress and to the left with Av Corrientes cut all the theaters and the Obelisk in the background.
