Check out our awesome video introduction!!! Location, location, location!!! A great place at a great price for travellers who want to enjoy Buenos Aires while staying in a safe, central location. Run by a friendly staff that includes artists, adventurers and intellectuals from various countries, we're conveniently located in Recoleta neighborhood. Sights such as the OBELISK, PLAZA DE MAYO, TEATRO COLON, CONGRESO, CEMETERIO DE RECOLETA and the FLORIDA STREET are only minutes away by foot. The French-style building (1890) evokes the glorious past of the city's Golden Age, although the gritty, fast-paced and highly cultured vibe of contemporary Buenos Aires is never far.The hostel is located on three floors (sorry, no elevator, but we will help you with your luggage, if necessary). There are 4-8-bed dorms, private rooms with shared or private bathrooms. All the rooms on the 1st level have nice balconies, the 2nd level has an open-air terrace and a bar where we make most delicious pizzas, serve drinks and local and international bands play there at the weekend! Musicians are always welcome in our house, we can organize a show for you on our terrace! In order to remain AFFORDABLE we provide modestly decorated rooms and fewer extra services. Please remember that this is an affordable youth hostel, not a hotel. We'll go out of our way to make you feel welcome and well informed about our city.Tango shows, tickets for football matches, entrance to clubs and info about the events in BsAs - are only a few things available at the reception. We can call you a cab, arrange an airport transfer, provide you with maps of the city and the neighborhood area. El Sol Recoleta is the PERFECT CHOICE FOR EASY-GOING ADVENTURERS, BUDGET-MINDED BACKPACKERS and anyone else looking for a unique place to stay. Think of it as sharing a big house with other travellers. Nos vemos pronto! kind regards,Paul Gallinato and the El Sol Staff.
