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.

... but everyone seems happy and relaxed.I had just returned from a 14 hour day,hungry as hell…..the tides were turning! I was trying to find a supermarket,could I find one in this locust swarm?

... 3 hours just to book the bus and we were starving hungry after not having eaten all day. I had Decided to do my own cooking for the night but it wasn't great. I cooked gnocchi which is one of my favourites. However I think I screwed it up as potato pasta lumps were salty and undercooked. Oh well I have a pack of oreas to make up for the poor meal. I am now really looking forward to this bus tomorrow. We will be living let kings. Il let you know how it ...

... that it was 6hrs of jungle landscape to watch. Which was fine as we are taking a plane today to Salta and I would have not gotten to see that landscape. Ate food at the hostel and that was that.

The next day was kinda fun. I did some hiking, repelled and did a zipline through the jungle. That was pretty awesome. I actually recorded video of the zipline and repel with my camera. After ...

... 9) managed to fit rather a lot of bodegas into one afternoon. There was vino tinto (red) vino blanco (white), a sweet marsala which the vinyard boasted is sold to all the icecream shops in Argentina... and more red wine. And at the end, to soak it all up, a tasting of olive oil. Pamplemoose didn't manage to do much else in Mendoza after that.

In Salta, she and Stanley decided to make up for their decadence by hitting the museums. The Meseum of ...

... another 3 hours on gravel roads to Cafayate. We kept stopping to take tons of photos which do not do the views any justice. I´ve never seen rock formations like them. Cafayate is a larger town and we all went out to a parilla steak grill and I also tried goat for the first time. It was greasy like duck but lovely taste. Tracy and I went to bed earlier than the others but I was tired from driving all day.
We had a lazy morning in Cafayate, very ...
