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.

Best travel experience so far, the Argentina buses are top class. Full lazy boy recliner chairs with blankets, snacks, tea and coffee, dinner and movies! Stopped off at a few small towns along the way in the middle of no where before making it to salta in 24 hours. On the way getting stopped multiple times, police offices coming onto the bus, and even one stop we had to all get off and wait while a huge scanner scanned the entire bus ( not sure what for? Maybe drugs or bombs ...

Wine Tour...Gone Wrong!

We thought we booked on a wine tour but we must have got a bit lost in translation and we actually booked on a sight seeing tour. We drove a few hundred kilometers to a town called Cafayate which is a wine region in the north of Argentina. On the way though we kept stopping at various points to see the scenery along a giant ...

... a traditional BBQ lunch which was amazing - lovely fresh salads and amazing fillet steak which just kept coming. I tried saying no to the owner to which he replied ' you do not like my BBQ!!'. I was quite impressed he could make a lawyer feel so bad - as you can guess the owner was a bit of a character.

That night we carried on the trick of picking out the top rated restaurants on tripadvisor and went to number 2 (this practice has served us well during our time in ...

Cruising the andes

... we headed back to Salta. That evening I had a few beers at the hostel with my new friends and a french fella pulled out a guitar so we had a bit of a session.
Yesterday morning I took an 8 hour bus from Salta to the border town of La Quiaca. La Quiaca was very sleepy but proved to be a great place to stroll the streets and keep a low profile. I ran into an english couple, Josh and Alice, who are also following the gringo trail like myself.
This morning the ...

... cute but it is more a gateway for the area to the north and south of it. We hired a car for the following day, pickup at 9 and then ran up the local hill consisting of 1070 steps to see te view of the area which was lovely. Back at the hostel we found a fourth person for the car trip (Leah from Toronto) and we were ready to go.

Off to the car place in the morning at 9 (the allotted time) and we have to wait as the car place is not yet ready ...
