Quite good places
We stayed in november at Casa Esmeralda hostel, it`s in the avenida Honduras...street number was about sth with 6700. Don`t remember exactly. There were a lot of people around the world. It`s not vey cheap but they are really frienly there. Double room was about 100 pesos per night.
In december we spent some night in San Telmo Hotel ...don`t remember the name in spanish but in english it`s Three Kings. It was about the same price as in Palermo Casa Esmeralda.
Unique Quality: Very friendly staff especially Husto and Cecilia and there`s a great dog Mora ;)
We had problems with deciding where to go and how to plan our 5 week trip and Cecilia gave us suer trooper ideas. And the place has little innergarden where you can have your breakfast and it`s quiet place. But if you want to have a nice parissa then you have to walk some blocks.... in San Telmo there`s more those places if you want to experience more local atmosphere.
An Oasis of Calm (Dog Included)
One of the best hostels I have stayed in on my travels. As you enter there is a huge patio where you can relax in a hammock, have a snack at one of the tables or just stare up at the sky through the trees. It's unusual to have this kind of calm in the centre of town. Alternatively there's a terrace where bbqs (asados) are cooked or a very chilled out living room where breakfast is served with fresh honey by the young charming team who run the place. TV and hifi are also available and there's some great photos and paintings by local artists and guests who stayed previously.
Staff are very helpful and will recommend trips or just where's best to eat locally.
Fast internet is available for a small fee.
This isn't a big 'party' hostel and tends to attract a mid-20's+ crowd rather than the late teens - but if you want somewhere to relax after the mayhem of a night on the town you couldn't ask for a better spot.
$7 per bed in the dorm
$20 double bedroom with bathroom next door
$22 double bedroom with ensuite bathroom
(all prices in US dollars)
Unique Quality: Nowhere else has Mora - the dog that thinks it's a (very big boistrous) human. She'll be the first to greet you at the door and if she's not dancing with the owner will be quite happy to follow you from the living room to the patio. If you are dog-phobic this is not the place for you.
Directions: Palermo Viejo - probably the best part of town to hang out - loads of bars, restaurants, cool one-off shops and clubs nearby and it's much safer than many other barrios. I was happy to walk the streets here late at night on my own.
