Important Information

No frills, just a great place at a great price for travelers who want to enjoy Buenos Aires while staying in a safe, central location. El Sol Hostel is truly one of a kind. Meet our friendly staff that includes artists, adventurers and intellectuals from various countries, and spend evenings at our lovely patio where we invite local or foreign musicians to play at the weekend and have movie nights during the week. And though El Sol is not a typical 'party hostel', there are often late night get-togethers and events! It's our goal to serve you so 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 neighbourhood area.
