    i`d like to recommend this hostel because i really found so many nice people here...all the staff of this hostel is really friendly, specially for the boys, ignacio (nacho) and sebastian they are really warm people and i will keep them in my best memories...
    if you come to buenos aires try to look for this hostel. besides the friendly staff, the location is very central and the prices...very, very good.

    Unique Quality: excellent location, they have tv cable, so many books, excellent tour information as their advertisment says "you`ll really feel like at home". and it really is is not only an advertisement...believe its true...

    Directions: Close to the congreso square...

Spanish Lang Sch in Buenos Aires/Recoleta focus on conversation

by spachick2000

I am looking for a reputable language schools in Buenos Aires or Recoleta area of Argentina.
I am looking for a main focus on conversation rather than just writing the different tenses on the board.
I will be in BA for 2 weeks for instruction and 2 weeks for touring.
Any suggestons?
BTW, I am not interested in private training perhaps group + private

I know a few people (both short-term and long-term travelers) who have taken private and group courses at VOS Buenos Aires and have nothing but great things to say. www.vosbuenosaires.com.

In the Recoleta you have several to choose from

The University of Buenos Aires also offers Spanish for foreigners but their classes are longer than two weeks.

One of these should suit your needs

I have studied Spanish at Verbum school in Buenos Aires and can highly reccommend it.
My teachers were very good and the classes are focused on conversation. Groups are kept small so that all the students have much the opportunity to participate.
Enjoy Buenos Aires!

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Rio de la Plata Sea Wall

by Bwana_Brown

We never got very close to the Rio de la Plata during our city tours, except for La Boca during our final afternoon. This is because the riverfront along the west bank of the river has a large buffer zone of streets, railway tracks and green zones between the water and the built-up Recoleta and Palermo districts.

However, as we flew out of BA from Jorge Newbery Airport, for our internal trips in Argentina, we had a good aerial view of this very wide waterway. Fed by the mighty Parana and Uruguay Rivers, the Rio de la Plata is a light chocolate brown colour, not very attractive for swimming at all. Further out, from the air you can see where the clear waters of the Atlantic swirl in conflict with the brown river waters.

This photo was taken from the departure level of Jorge Newbery, showing the sea wall that runs along the river here. It was a grey and humid day, but several people were fishing off the wall using very long rods, catching who knows what?

It is a religion....if you really see deeply the eyes and the real feeling of Tango by the faces of these great dancers, Graciela and Javier, you will feel that Tango is not only part of the argentinean culture...it is part of their intimacy, it comes from the soul, it comes from everything sacred they consider...

Tango is felt in the blood and the tango makes people from all age to experience it, and to live TANGO.

I am proud to introduce you this lovely couple which shows to the world the impressing SENSUAL DANCE!

Put a Little Spice in Your Life

by jakelorenzo

Bring a lot less luggage than you usually do. Laundries are on every corner and they are very inexpensive, about $3 US for a whole washer load. They'll usually have clothes ready the same day. Since Buenos Aires is a very casual city, you don't need much in the way of fancy dress. Bring comfortable clothes and do a load of laundry every few days. it will make your life much easier than hauling large suitcases filled with clothes you don't need. Buenos Aires is a great city and Argentina is a terrific country, but one thing they don't get is "picante." They love pizza, but don't have any dry chile peppers to spice it up. They have tons of delicious empanadas and meats, but only have timid chimichurri sauces to titillate the taste buds. Bring a small bag of dried red chile flakes and a small tube of Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. Use them surrepticiously if you must, but you'll be glad you have them with you.

Go to Colonia, Uruguay and come back in a day!

by luzmaria

Crossing the worlds widest river is an interesting activity that doesnt take longer than 3 hours... so why not go see some of the neighbouring country during our stay in Bs As? Colonia is a magical, historical, beautiful town that i highly recommend for a weekend escapade.

Here you have the schedules when the ferries leave Bs As... be aware that you must be there one hour before departure...

More wine to take home with us

by Gypsystravels about Duty Free

Between us both we had quite a few hundred pesos left over when we arrived at the airport. We thought we would have time to grab a decent bit to eat, but because we were delayed due to traffic we barely had an hour before our flight was scheduled to leave so we decided to spend that money in the duty free shop instead.

I definitely should have spent the other $200 pesos on some more wine, but we had already more than 18 bottles (checked) and I wasn't sure how many more bottles we could each take. At this point I figured, well, it is checked, so shouldn't really make a difference and we bought another 8 bottles between us.

The prices of the wine were quite good and well worth spending those extra pesos on!! The process is quite easy, you purchase your wine and you are given your receipt and the wine is delivered to the gate and as you board your flight you pick up your bag. Wine of course, I have to check my wine fridge to see what wines I purchased at the Duty Free, but I do believe they were mostly Malbecs
