Argentina is not the bargain it once was – high demand plus high inflation means prices are now more on a par with European countries. Luckily, Buenos Aires is home to some amazing hostels located in the hottest neighbourhoods, often in gorgeously-renovated colonial buildings. Run by young Argentines and expats, they’re as stylish as boutique hotels with all the amenities you’d expect, like free wi-fi and rooftop terrace bars. Add in features like free bike rental, backyard asados (barbeques), Spanish classes, wading pools, tango lessons and discount admission to the trendiest nightclubs, and you might never go home. Here are just a few of our favourites.
