The location is really good, as Palermo is a really nice part of Buenos Aires and it’s also only 5 min. walk to different small supermarkets, ATM and metro station. Right in front is a really nice little store where they sell fresh fruits and vegetables. We really liked the roof terrace where you also can prepare BBQ. The kitchen...

I stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm room in Giramondo back in 2009, so it's possible they have changed their staff however I doubt they have thrown out their bunk beds. I'm not sure why I didn't sign up and create a review earlier... The maid was caught in a friends private room, going through their bags. When asked, she...

We took this place based on a guidebook recommendation and dearly regretted it. This was the worst place in our entire trip, or in fact ever. I can only recommend avoiding it. They have a second location down the street where we ended - which is a horrible place, smelly, filthy, (the beds (!) but also the common toilets and...

We had seen some mixed reviews but we were making a last minute booking so we decided to take a chance. This hostal has a great location, a nice vibe, and things were generally clean. Unfortunately they have a major bed bug problem and not much clue how to handle it. It was our first encounter with bed bugs and...

The location is awesome as it is in Palermo. Was there already 6 years ago. The bar in the basement closed down though. I was there in high season but the place was less than half empty due to rough competition. I often was the only person in my 6 bed dorm which I liked. It´s not really a party...

We stayed in the suites and while the room was big and clean, the bathroom had several constant drips from faucets onto the floor so it was always wet. We got no service during our stay so we had to ask for toilet paper several times and attempt to clean up the water on the bathroom floor with a dirty...

The common theme of this hostel is a general lack of due care and attention. The location is central, the ~19th century house looks beautiful and some of the staff are even helpful, but other than this the hostel has few redeeming qualities. The shared washrooms seem to have been inspired by either a rusty garden shed or some sort...

We stayed in the Hostel Giarmondo for 5 nights in the suites as there were 4 of us. The room was clean, the bathroom needed a bit of care however the showers were amazing. The staff were very friendly and gave us great advice about where to go and stay. The beds were comfortable. The room had lovely air conditioning....

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
