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.

Driving in Salta is also an interesting experience - with seemingly no road rules, we even googled who has right of way at intersections and got varying answers back, some saying the biggest vehicle had the right of way, others saying whoever gets there first, and some even just outrightly saying there are no road rules!

... of Humahuaca. I (Caz) had my first taste of Argentinian empanadas and preferred them to the ones in Chile, they are a mini version so you can have four with different fillings, rather than just one massive one like they have in Chile. But when all said and done, they're just the South American version of pasties! Dan had steak again. He has been looking forward to the steak in Argentina for months and has successfully overdosed on the red meat. On our first ...

... if he's 'helping' with luggage from every bus that arrives and leaves.
Trusting our guide book we decided to walk 5 minutes to a close by hostel as we would we leaving the next day. It soon came apparent the hostel was nowhere to be seen so now even more annoyed and hungry we made our way back to the station. On the way we found a house that let out rooms and with our broken Spanish managed to stay there for the night. The guy was extremely weird and stunk of alcohol so ...

... day with friends! I was practically giddy at this point and chatted with the hungover Kiwis until I'm sure they were tired of me! Not surprisingly I was feeling much, much differently than I had just two days before. I was now at only 4,000 feet and felt like a new person. The altitude had been almost too much for my body to handle. At the dinner the previous night, Josefina had informed me that I could have taken plain ibuprofen for altitude sickness. ...

... are blocks of syrofoam. The washrooms never had toilet paper, no handtowels and they were like a small closet, after your shower you had to change in the shower, when the shower curtain was closed you'd get wrapped up in it and water all over the floor. Most people at the front desk spoke some english, the door gets locked after a certain time and you have to ring a buzzer to get in which sometimes took a little while.... I moved to the Salta Hotel after a couple ...
