Lonely Planet review
This friendly hostel has just 28 beds and is enthusiastically run by its five young owners, all artists or social workers. It’s a colorful place with good-sized dorms, six doubles (three with bathroom) and occasional cultural events. The location is in a gritty blue-collar neighborhood near Plaza Lezama. Free tango classes and bike rentals.
Our independent authors have visited Sandanzas Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Buenos Aires.
