This place is so cheap . . . the rooms start at only 25 pesos per night (US$9). The rooms at that price are bare-bones -- twin bed, no TV, and no phone. The main reason I didn't stay here is because I needed a phone so local friends could reach me. Next time I go to Buenos Aires, I plan to take my cell phone with me and stay at this hotel. Even with these low prices, the hotel wasn't full and the clerk showed me several rooms. The more expensive rooms (they go up to 45 pesos) have larger beds, phones, and a TV costs 4 pesos extra per day (in any room). There are rooms available in the back that would be quieter.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel to the serious budget traveler. The rooms were clean, but very basic (think Mexico), but certainly acceptable considering the price. If you go there, don't settle for the first room they show you . . . ask to see several rooms since they are all very different from each other. Some of the rooms have updated or completely remodeled bathrooms.

My room was a large single, with bathroom, and cost $20 per night. The staff were friendly and helpful, but most did not speak English, so if you don''t speak Spanish, better break out those phrase books! To get to town, take the bus one block away on Av. Gral. Las Heras, but before getting on the bus, be sure to have coffee and medialunas to start your day at the café on the corner.
