About this listing
A private big room with balcony in a sunny apartment in the neighborhood of La Boca. For two guests. Mmmhh, suspiciously cheap? I'm ok with this price, I like to have people here and you can spend more money in my country.
A big private room with balcony in a sunny & big apartment in the neighborhood of La Boca. For two or three guests. Mmmhh, too cheap? I'm ok with this price, I like to have people here and you can spend more money in my country.
Everyone liked the place, you will too!
10 blocks from San Telmo, the historical city. 5 blocks from Caminito, the typical La Boca spot. 25 blocks from Plaza de Mayo central square and the pink house where Evita "spoke" and Madonna "sang". Bus to Palermo, the trendy neighborgood -40 minutes- night and day. The same bus puts you on Retiro central station to go to Tigre harbour and islands by train in 1:15 hour.
Super comfortable. There is wifi, there is TV and there is a cat. We share the kitchen. In summer you can enjoy the roof and use the grill. I can give information about places to go and things to do and to know, if you want.
You will find yourself relaxed and comfortable in my house and my neighborhood. Perhaps you will spend 1/2 day visiting the very (posibly too much) touristic area of Caminito. But the city is big and full of nice or strange things to see, to taste, to go. This is a good starting point to go for them and return when you feel tired and really need to rest a little before tomorrow's adventures.
Feeling lazy? Not enough rest? Spend the hole day home! There are lots of books in spanish, some in english, swedish and german, one in french and another in portuguese. Also guides and maps. If the day is sunny, buy some fruit or something fresh, put on your headphones and take some of the sun on the roof. When you start feeling guilty, take my bikes and ride a little (ok, perhaps that day I'm using one of them). There are some safe ways -bicisendas- to go close or far and enjoy the city in a different way.
If it rains there are movies in english and spanish. There is also an owen, I will be very happy smelling cake smell.

The reference point to come to my home is Boca stadium. I'm 300 meters far from Boca stadium. You can tell that to the cab driver or anybody, because is a well known spot.
You can count with: towels, sheets, soap, shampoo, tooth paste. Bathtub and bidet (important!). Wifi internet, adaptor for several different electric plugs. All the things in the kitchen and all you need to cook. Including salt, spiceys, oil, owen, gas, mate cup, expresso coffee machine, water boiler. Coffee, tea bags, sugar, milk, eggs, yerba mate. Or let's say: everything you can see with your eyes. If you use things and then you buy more, excelent. Sparkling water if you find it in the fridge. Street guide, maps that the other guests left, any book. Phone for local calls.
Close to my place there are several shops: to buy fruit + vegetables, bread, chicken + meat, cigarettes + coke + chocolate and a little supermarket, all this in less than 50 mts. from the door, from 9am to 21:30 and later. Hungry & lazy? Quick delivery services around for pizza + empanadas. Cheap restaurante and Expensive restaurante, both 100 mts. from home. Bus stop 200 mts. from home.
Interaction with Guests
If we are in the kitchen, and you like to, I like to talk, study maps or make food togheter. If you are in your room i will respect your privacy but i can knock knock your door to tell you that the cab arrived or that we need to leave the building because it is on fire. Or that maybe it is time to change your bedclothes. You can do the same and knock my room, if the building is on fire for example or you want to know anything.
My neighborhood is honest, is "the real thing". Many things can happen in one moment and suddenly it is "siesta time" (nap) and nobody is in the street anymore. You can find anything in the middle.
Many buses start in La Boca to any part of the city. Those buses also connect with metro and with the train to go to "the suburbs". Transport is really cheap, cost of the ticket is around a quarter euro. BUT you need coins or a SUBE card, we can arrange that. There are also ways for bicycles, you can use mine if you want.
1. Smoking is allowed In balconys and roof
2. You can use the washing machine and soap, that will be euro 1 each time (please keep your record)
3. You can use the coffee of the house for free - if you buy more coffee, even better; the same with any other thing
4. Please left the kitchen and bathroom in same conditions as you find them (or better!)
5. For the planet: i invite you to produce less garbage, to avoid plastic bottles and to choose products with less packaging, to separate organic garbage for my compost and turn off the lights when you don't use them
6: Guests: there is no problem if you want to receive a friend in my home during the day, just let me know before
Nous avons passer une excellente semaine dans l'appartement de Federico. La chambre est splendide, tous comme le reste de l'appartement. Sans parler du toit où nous avons profité du hamac et du barbecue. De plus, un supermarché, une boulangerie et un maraîcher se trouvent à moins de 50 mètres de l'appartement. La boucherie est elle à 200 mètres.
Federico nous a très bien accueilli, et a toujours été disponible dès que nous avions des questions.
We had a very great time at Federico´s flat. It felt like home and we already miss it. Federico and Verena are amazing hosts with a lot of humor. The roof garden is one of the most beautiful ones we have ever seen. Hopefully we will come back one day.
Federico a été pour nous un hôte très charmant qui
a le sens du partage. Toujours là pour vous aider "sur tout mais aussi sur rien." Il cuisine de merveilleuses pizzas. ! ( et apparemment un merveilleux asado )
Son fils Francisco a , lui aussi, était très accueillant .
Nous nous sommes sentis très bien dès que nous avons franchit le seuil de la porte. Ces 10 jours à La Boca furent parfait.
D'ailleurs, le quartier est pour nous l'un des plus agréable de Buenos Aires, loin des quartiers touristiques , on ressent beaucoup la vraie vie de quartier.
Grazias Federico ! Grazias Francisco ! Grazias Diego !
Pasamos demasiado bien aqui en la casa de Federico. La casa y el cuarto muy comodo y bien ubicado en La Boca, un barrio donde uno se siente que esta viviendo en el Buenos Aires de verdad. Federico nos trato muy bien y atendio todas las necesidades que tuvimos. Lo recomendamos totalmente.
We had an amazing time at Federico's house in La Boca. Everything was comfortable and we loved the neighborhood and it's location. Federico took good care of us and was hugely helpful with any question. We highly recommend staying here!
Good apartment, good host, NICE district, NICE city !!
Unfortunately we haven't had the chance to spend much time with Federico during the week our in B.A. But he sincerely looks pretty cool & ready to help with anything you gonna need (in our case we got stuck outside for some hours because of a key problem.... it happens, "c'est la vie"..)
No security problem in La Boca, just use your common sense (like everywhere). I really enjoyed the area, it's like a small village and it would be a shame to miss it during your stay.
Federico, Maria & me would be happy to come back in your apartment end of March and to enjoy a Boca game with you & some Asados on your awesome rooftop ok !!! =)
We had a great time in Federicos appartment. Federico is a really nice guy. Unfortunately we met only a couple of hours but he was really caring. The appartment is really great and the roof terrace is amazing!!
Frederico est une personne tres acceuillante tranquille ouvert comme sa maison et authentique comme le quartier la boca
Je recomande vivement
