El Sol Hostel de Recoleta
ABOUT EL SOL HOSTEL - RECOLETA The French-style palace (built in 1890) offers a charming blend of the city's elegant Golden Years--but the vibrant pace and culture of contemporary Buenos Aires is never far. We're on the side closest to downtown where attractions like the Obelisk, Playa de Mayo, Teatro Colon, Congreso, and Florida St. are only minutes by foot. In order to remain affordable we provide simply decorated rooms with fewer extra services. Our neighborhood offers most of your needs within THREE BLOCKS of the hosteland dozens of eating establishments some of which are open 24 hours! You don´t even have to step off our curb for laundry, internet/phone calls, pharmacy, gym, breakfast, bakery, kiosks, photo developing, or a bar/dance club
El Sol Hostel has been open since 2004 and we've had the pleasure of hosting thousands of guests from over 70 countries. Our goal is to make you glad you chose us for your stay in BA. We're looking forward to meeting you.
Nos vemos pronto!
Paul Gallinato and the El Sol Staff.
