Description

The Space

A big private room with balcony in a sunny & big apartment in the neighborhood of La Boca. Not shared. With a double bed and the possibility of a 3rd single bed in case you are three. 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 use to be a cat. Not anymore. 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.

-(URL HIDDEN)REFERENCE POINT

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

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.
