After my earlier visits to Buenos Aires, I still didn’t really like the city. It just didn’t have appeal – the small towns were much more fun and diffferent. Buenos Aires felt dirty, cramped and mildly scary with the taxis hurtling around every corner and the hostels not being the best. I was quite happy to have left it, seemingly for good.
Now in Buenos Aires for the fifth time, I decided to go for comfort. The incredible hostel in El Calafate – America Del Sur had a sister hostel in Buenos Aires. Unfortunately it was quite pricey, but I went for it and booked a few nights to adjust and to plan. Randomly, back in San Pedro where what felt like a lifetime ago, we’d mentioned the existence of this hostel to the German girls. As it turns out, they were arriving in Buenos Aires a night after I was, and amazingly staying at the same hostel. We agreed to meet up after some messages on Facebook, and after taking the minibus direct to the hostel and being wowed on first sight, I spent the first evening just wandering around San Telmo, up to Plaza de Mayo again, got some fast food, and crashed out after a good long chat with my new Israeli roommate, Yogi.
