The staff here is really friendly and helpful. The place is central and within walking distance from the bus terminal, just south of the plaza. The Balcarce area is about 20 minute walk away.
The place is clean, with access to a kitchen but it is in needs of some basic maintenance like changing a knob that staid in my hand after turned it to get water.
The table tennis and the roof terrace are great.
It's a good place with good value for money.

... at the best rate possible.

An extremely helpful French bloke paid for our taxi into town where we haggled with the cambio (change) guys by the main plaza as we exchanged some dollars at the favourable rate. Our slight concerns of the legality of the operation were soon quenched when policemen passed by and didn't bat an eyelid. The plaza in Salta was beautiful at night and it became clear that the city contains a considerable amount of wealth.

... graffiti and the banners meanwhile are spreading and the messages are angry. In my two hours in the tented area I did not see one concerned Argentine tourist go in there to speak to anyone which added to my previous statement in the Buenos Aries chapter that the government knows how to look after the middle classes and therefore they lack the will to act on behalf of those below them on the social ladder and even worse,they close their eyes. An abhorrent ...

... a salt flat - the Jujuy Salinas Grandes. Having been to the Bolivian salt flats, this one was much smaller and dirtier and not a patch on the Salar de Uyuni. We hadn't realised unfortunately that his tour went to a salt flat as we wouldn't have booked it. The good thing about it was that we had lunch there and they gave us chicken salad and fruit salad. It was such a treat to have salad, rather than more bread as that's all we ...

... the day slowed down. We walked around town on the quiet Sunday afternoon, stopped for dinner and took the bus back. Another chill day. Today we leave Iquazu to Salta which will be my last destination in Argentina. It was also the first destination in Argentina, but this time we are renting a car to drive to surrounding towns. That should be pretty fun. I will tell you why in my next blog.

... se volvían locos cuando veían llegar hasta 5 buses de la misma compañía y nadie sabía cual debía coger.

Al final, descubrimos cuál era el nuestro, y nos llevaron a Salta, mi primer destino en Argentina, a donde llegamos a las 11.30 de la noche. Sabíamos que el hostal estaba cerca, pero aún asi intentamos tomar un taxi porque estábamos muy cansados. El problema fue que ningún taxi nos llevaba porque estaba muy cerca!
