THE SOUTHERN AMERICAN SERIES PT9
BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA
So I was back in Buenos Aires again again (since the match) after an amazing times in Rio. I’ll admit Rio will be hard to beat but I’ve heard not only good things about this city but also about the hostel, Milhouse Hostel (hipo).
AS FAR AS HOSTELS GO, THIS ONE WAS ONE OF THE BEST!
As normal I ran in with a few as soon as I arrived. Max, Karla and John, 3 of the most chilled out people I’ve met.
WHERE IS BUENOS AIRES?
NYE in Buenos Aires
I didn’t find there to be a huge amount of things to do here but it suited me, I just wanted to enjoy New Years with a few good friends and then meet the family for our cruise and that’s exactly what I got!
There are some hostels which you hear about on the backpacker trail and like me it doesn’t matter if you were in a different continent if you hear people’s first recommendation is to stay at a hostel then you know it’s going to be a good one! This hostel had everything but just one thing, a beach! It had plenty of tours throughout the week, from a day at the polo to a day at the match, River or Boca, whichever takes your fancy.
Karla and John had a local contact who invited her out to a rooftop pool party on top of their apartment block. It was a chilled party as they had reserved it for friends only so suited us all well. Unfortunately, when you tend to have a lot of fun and as well as being in a pool you don’t take many photos!
After another week of partying in Milhouse Hostel – it’s intense! My family joined me in Buenos Aires where we had a few days to kill before jumping on the cruise. We had a tour of the city & La Bombonera and an evening watching a tango performance.
