Back in BA is one of the first and finest hostels in Buenos Aires and Palermo Soho. Originally called BaitBA International Hostel, it has recently changed its name and look and now boasts great facilities while keeping the same great atmosphere.

Their staff have always been the friendliest in Buenos Aires, and now they also offer the best bedding in any hostel, an awesomely equipped kitchen, blazing fast wifi in all rooms, free local phone calls and as always, Palermo Soho on your doorstep.

The dorm beds have unique privacy curtains and the giant lockers - big enough for the biggest bags - also have with charging points inside them so you can plug in your gadget, lock it up and leave it: genius! Add to that the sublime garden patio, cheeky late bar and great prices and you've got a top spot in Palermo.

They have regular bbqs (asados), organise nights out (and nights in) but if you don't want to, you don't have to do anything. Their big thing is just chill out and enjoy the best of BA at your own pace.

Of course, they can also help you out with football tickets, tango shows, Spanish lessons, onward travel and local advice. Anything you need to make your stay in BA a memorable one.

Back in BA? Because you will be.
