    Though the staff was very friendly and courteous , we left a unsatisfied. The rooms were shabby, not very tidy and the bathrooms downright dirty. Though we know it's a hostel and we certainly do not expect much out of breakfast, the included breakfast consisted of stale packaged crackers and individually sized jam. And not enough for all the guests. Ew.

    That evening we went to La Bomba de Tiempo, one of BA’s biggest and most unique parties. It is where a drum and procession band play to a living crowd. It is set in a factory court yard and beers are sold by the litre along with nachos and potato chips.

  • A visit to one of the many parks in Buenos Aries is a great, cost free way to spend the day. The Botanical Gardens was very nice!

    ... airport trying each machine. Luckily though we found that you could pay for the taxi with a Visa card so shared a taxi into downtown BA so I kind of got most of my money back. I stupidly booked into the notorious party hostel for my first couple of nights in BA, thinking it could be good fun.

    ... of the tall ships that were moored in the docks, which was quite interesting, and cost about 15p to go in. By now it was hot and we were hungry so we headed back to the city centre to the main shopping street and had burritos. The shopping area was full of designer shops and galleries; it reminded me of New York. There was a Christmas shop, which was very exciting. Here in the sun it is easy to forget that at home mince pies and crackers will already be in the shops. We ...
