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.

... practically starving ourselves all day, we couldn't resist a McDonald's we stumbled across prior to taking a taxi to our recommended hostel, Loki, 40 minutes outside of town. Situated on a ranch in the middle of nowhere, we were greeted by a very friendly Irish guy, Shane, at reception who explained the various elements of the hostel including the huge 24 hour bar and 5 hours of happy hour available.

... as they too at some point in their lives were taught by teachers just like these ones protesting.I only noted that concerned local residents were listening to what the teachers had to say. All is not well in Argentina and the class divide is vitriolic.

I took a trip out to Humahuaca an excursion that required me to awaken at 5.30 am in the morning,myself and three other guests wandered around like zombies in the reception area as the equally ...

... constantly eat in South America. The next stage of the trip was definitely better. We drove up to 4170m above sea level and then down a long and winding road through the mountains which was spectacular. We then stopped so people could take photos of cacti (again something we have become immune to by now but would have been snapping away 6 weeks ago) and then the guide and driver gave us all wine and cheese and did a little ...

The tour minibus picked us up at 8:00 and the group was a blend of older Argentinean and then younger foreigners. Our guide was named Walter and had a true enthusiasm for geologic formations. The 11 hour tour (cost $36 USD) took us through the cousin of the American Southwest, Quebrada de Cafayate. We saw amazing scenery, big cacti! and our guide loved to point out rock formations that bore resemblance to other things, mostly animals ...

... minute gift buying...!

I made the decision in La Paz that, quite frankly, I had had enough of travelling and so I have decided to head towards Rio and my outbound flight back to London.

So another bus company (I seriously contemplating writing a blog on all the different bus companies in South America!) and a 24 hour ...
