        Nice hostel with helpful staff helping to arrange outings and transport for a small reasonable fee. However, the kitchen and balcony area shuts at 10pm and there is only one PC to share between all guests. They do have wi-fi restricted to certain areas of the hostel. Loads of rooms and it is a very cool building with outdoor showers.

        All right breakfast, kitchen is average, good vibe, good mix of travellers. Palermo is good for a second place to stay in BA to see something different without being far away. Don't know how Tango fits in the title but hey.

        The staff are what made this hostal experience so much better than any other. Seriously have never met more helpful and fun people! The atmosphere in the hostal is amazing, there is always something going on and they can help you organise activities. The rooms are really nice and the breakfast is good. You will not regret staying here!

        A "Worldly" Experience

        ... busting out my Spanish-- which I refined in asking the Portero (doorman) for the bus stop, remember?-in fragments, for course. And suddenly its time for dinner (about 11PM). Yummy. It was very good. And there we were-very much like a hostel-20 or so people around a table, passing food (Indian food at that) and eating. Then, one of them pulls out his guitar, and his friend a drum-and suddenly they are singing Argentine folk music. And ...

        Day One and Two in Buenos Aires

        ... staircases, great shops and beautiful restaurants. We walked from there to the Museum Nacional de Buenos Aires which has a great sculpture adjacent to the museum. It's a metal flower that opens and closes each day. On the way back to our hotel we passed an ornate building on Cordoba Avenue. It was remarkable. That evening was our night for the tango. We ...

        ... are widely accepted. We used a debit card at the ATMs. We carry the Capitol One Mastercard as there are no transaction fees, unlike other credit cards. There is usually a cash discount if you pay in cash. Even if we pay for a meal with a credit card, we leave a 10% tip in cash. All the ferias, meal tips, taxis are in pesos. Try to get 20 peso bills; larger bills are sometimes difficult to use. ENJOY! RELAX! HA

        ... on the streets, talking lots and living life to the full. You can spend hours in the many café/bars too with just a coffee for the entire day reading books etc.. and no one bats an eyelid; it's the norm in BA, if only home was more like that! We could definitely have lived here for a while for sure... On the Saturday night Hils had sorted for us to go and relive our Uni days(well more Adams!!) at 'Creamfields' so attempting to feel all of 18 again, we went ...

        polo, milonga, la vida

        ... Totally a date place! And only $5 to get in, and $7 per bottle of wine. Saturday I went to a polo match, which was pretty exciting as I've never been. Being of the trailer park caste as I am, I compensated for the fact by wearing my nicest cardigan/collared shirt combo, which was a perfect fit. These were some rich ass people! For example, the bar only sold Stella Artois, which is typically out of my price range (except for ...

        The big (tiring) leap to Buenos Aires.

        ... Island doesnīt have any book stores, much less a guide book on South America (um, do you have one in English, please?) After 5 months in Central America, we were craving a large, cosmopolitan city with cool temperatures, good food, and wine. (Wine! I never thought Iīd get tired of beer, but when itīs the only option, it can get tiresome.) So, with all that in mind, Buenos Aires seemed the place for us. It also didnīt cost much more to fly there than to the other countries, so we went ...
