Property Information:

Back in BA is cozy, colourful hostel in the heart of Palermo Soho, Buenos Aires; where you can meet lots of cool backpackers, have a drink at our late bar, listen to music and hang out in the sunny garden patio. We have regular bbqs (asados), organise nights out (and nights in) but if you dont want to, you dont have to do anything. Our big thing is just chill out and enjoy the best of BA at your own pace.

Just two blocks from Plaza Serrano, we could not be better located in Palermo Soho: a safe area and the best part of Buenos Aires! Famous for bars, boutiques, cafes, clubs and leafy streets. It's where porteos (people from Buenos Aires) come to relax, shop, eat, drink and party.

Located in a Spanish-style house with a sunny, quiet garden patio, we have only 9 rooms and 25 beds in total. We cater to all budgets from dorms to private rooms with ensuite facilities, some with original wooden floors and high ceilings.

If you want to see a football game, check out a tango show, learn Spanish or just party all night, we can help you find the best places and best prices. We can also hook you up with apartment rentals and flights, tours, etc. The reception is open 24 hours and the staff are bilingual so we're always available to help.

We've got your Back in BA!

Check in time is 1pm
Check out time is 11am

    Stayed for one night in a double room with bathroom. Comfortable bed and clean linens, but the room smelled of mold and the bathroom ceiling was full of mildew. The smell gave me a headache, but I decided to endure it since I was only staying one night. The big space under the door made the room very noisy. You could hear every noise being made in the hostel. I had a good night's sleep though, the breakfast was good value for money, and the staff was helpful enough. However, won't stay again.
