Check in to Art Factory Palermo and get ready to experience real Buenos Aires life. We'll make you feel right at home in our chic, bohemian hostel (set in a beautiful old mansion) and give you a street-art tour to introduce you to the area. There's table tennis to play in the common room, or use our computers to keep up with everyone's news (we also have free Wi-Fi). If you just fancy taking it easy in front of a movie, hunt down the cable TV – or we've also got a book exchange.


Palermo's a fun neighbourhood packed with vibrant nightlife and loads of places to eat and drink. Our tip's to head to Plaza Armenia, just one minute away. Plaza Serrano is the place to be at the weekends (3 minutes from us), with quirky markets to discover. To get to the main square in Buenos Aires, just ride the subway for 15 minutes. Landing at Ezeiza Airport? It'll take you about 45 minutes to reach us. We can pick you up from the airport or Retiro bus station – just call ahead to book.

Rooms and Dorms

Our cosy dorms are bright and squeaky clean – perfect for a good night's kip. Choose between dorms with shared bathrooms, or go for an en-suite room if you want more privacy. We'll roll out free linen and stop you from overheating with air con. Give us a shout at our 24-hour reception if you need to hire a towel.

Extras and activities

Knock up lunch in our kitchen or head out to try some local pizza or empanadas. We have free maps at reception and we'll point you in the right direction so you can enjoy the best of Buenos Aires (and where to find steak, wine or tango!). Wi-Fi's free and you can stash your gear in one of our free lockers to save it from getting under your feet. Hot drinks and juice are on offer all day.

    Really nice hostel, the staff were great very helpful and informative. The only negative is that the communal area closes between 1am to 8am so there is now where to hang out besides in your room

    ery cheap, very clean, payed only 6$ f Per night and got breakfast too (bread, butter, jam, cake, they even made me a scrambled egg). The location is AMAZING, close to the bar area and still quiet. When i was there they had a problem with the a/c so it was a little hot, but other than that it was perfect

    I enjoyed Art Factory Palermo so much I actually came back for another night. Really friendly helpful staff. A bit quieter than some of the other hostels in BA. Plus it’s in the middle of Palermo which is amazing for food and nightlife. I would say that this hostel is incredible value for money and has prioritised the right things to give the best customer experience.

    Stayed here on a previous visit to Buenos Aires and thought it was such good value decided to stay here again in a private room. This time the room provided was in an annex space which was nice although the shared bathroom was between a few rooms so long lines! It did have a lovely roof terrace and lots of common space to sit and cool out in. Really highly recommend art factory as a very good value for money option in Palermo. Particularly good if you are transporting from the domestic airport

    Have stayed here numerous times. Always love it here. The Housekeeping & Reception/Management staff are simply wonderful, hard-working, and so lovely & funny. I think prices have just gone up a bit maybe since my last visits. This hostel will always be my favourite to stay in, in Buenos Aires. I like it very much

    Nice hostel with nice staff. It’s located fairly close to Palermo centro, which is very conveniente! I liked that most (if not all) the bedrooms have their own private bathroom which is regularly cleaned.

    The staff were very friendly, the artwork inside was amazingly cute, and the location was awesome. The showers stunk a bit and our room door lock was broken so we were concerned with that, but overall we had a good time here in Art Factory Palermo. You’ll find trendy restaurants in the neighborhood too!

    I guess this place is alright, but I came from Sato Hostel (also in Palermo) which is super super nice, so I didn’t really like this hostel. It was a little smelly, dirty kitchen, very dark commen area. I didn’t get to see the rooms or anything, because I went straight back to Sato hostel haha.

    I booked the private room for 8 days. Room was quite big and clean. Location was perfect. Three things I didn't like: The kitchen was not in a good state and dirty. Cooking tools were of very bad quality what made cooking almost impossible. Also the two refrigerators were chaotic lots of food innit. Also in the common room,showers and toilets was it very hot.
