Salta and El Bolson


Tierra Culta is nice but popular and gets fully booked.
An alternative is Las Rejas, run by a very nice and helpful man, although there is only room for a couple of bikes. It is also located in a better part of town and has a more upscale B&B if that is your thing.
Las Rejas Hostel - B & B - Alojamiento Hostel Hostal Bed And Breakfast Ubicado en el Centro de la Ciudad de Salta

El Bolson
Luz de la Luna is a nice place with lots of parking out back.

terra occulta, in Salta costs 30 pesos now and has not improved. But it may still be the best option there.

In Tucuman, Hostal Tucuman, Buenos Aires 669. Decent place, if expensive (24 pesos for dorm, 70 for dbl with bathroom), but they have free internet and a nice backgarden. Breakfast is 5-10 pesos more.

Also good in Salta is Hostel El Correcaminos, Vincente Lopez 353. It has parking in the courtyard for a couple of bikes. The staff are super friendly, helpful and most speak english. They have a kitchen, free internet and it is very clean. Four blocks from the plaza.

santiago,cheapest party place + hostel

La casa Roja. one of the cheapest hostel we can find in santiago. there is a garage by the side. if u like party bag packers disturbing your rest in the night,this is the place.

one of the owner had traveled from south america to alaska on bike. his behivior does not looked like a biker, to me is a poser, boasting to everyone about his trip. well, he is also a regular in the HU. we didnt felt welcome from day 1 even we have stayed there for more than a week.

if u are reading this, you know who am i.

i would rate this hostel as the BEST place to stay (because its cheap) and Best place to party.

a dorm bed cost 8000p. parking is 2000p/24 hrs. is 1000p per bottle so bagpackers got drunk whole day. some other hostel nearby there are 8500p with parking. are 1500p per bottle. a little bit expensive but we got a good rest from the party and sick people we saw.

i was asked to leave the hostel on one night. they refunded the money(5 nights which i paid in advance) to me.


singapore dream: we were ask to leave the hostel thou we have paid for the week

i would strongly recommand this hostel for party people.

Buenos Aires hostels

I have rented an apartment in BA with a friend but before I did I emailed just about every hostel listed in the Lonely Planet, Footprint and Get South to find if anyone had space for a motorcycle. Despite receiving the expected long list of polite apologies three hostels said that I could park on a terrace or patio. I can't vouch for any of them but here are the three that suggested that they had space. Good luck.

Puerto Limón Hostel
Chacabuco 1080, San Telmo
(011) 4361 9649
10% discount with "Get South" guidebook

Hostal De Granados (apparently has lots of stairs!)
Chile 374, San Telmo
(011) 4362 5600 / 4307 0562
10% discount with "Get South" guidebook

Milonga Hostel (in the city centre)
Ayacucho 921 Bs.
(011) 4815 1827 / 4815 2143

Rosario - Anamundana hostel

Almost as tough as Buenos Aires there are few options for motorcycle friendly accommodation in Rosario but I've managed to find a gem. There's space to park one motorcycle in the entrance way, unfortunately more than one bike isn't possible.

Anamundana hostel
Montevideo 1248
Tel (o341) 4243077
ANAMUNDANA | Guest House - Rosario, Argentina

It's a low-key hostel in an old house close to the centre of town. A supermarket is one block away and motorcycle shops are only five blocks away.

If you're riding with Get South guide book there's 15% discount for stays of more than 3 nights. Dorms are 50 pesos a night, which when it includes parking your wheels in a major city turns into a bargain. Personally I like to party but this is no party hostel, it's relaxing and as you'd expect from an Argentine run hostel its super friendly too.

In case its important for you there's a good fast wifi connection here, perfect for uploading photos etc.

Puerto Iguazu, San Ignacio & Resistencia

Puerto Iguazu

If you don't fancy the out of town back packers hostel then there is an alterntaive with secure parking.

Bambu Hostel
Av San Martin 4
Manuel, Natslia and Cris all speak fantastic English
Wifi, breakfast, use of kitchen, dorms starting from ARG40. There's space for motorcycles at the back of their courtyard.
S25 35.697 W54 34.275

San Ignacio

Tranquil and a great stop on your way to Iguazu giving you access to the Jesuit Missions. The hostel is one block from the ruins.

Hostel Jesuita - listed in some guide books as “La Casa de Ines y Juan”
Dorms ARG35
Shared bathroom with electric shower, use of kitchen
When I was there Dario, the owner (speaks English) hooked me up to the internet via a Moviestar modem (through a cell phone network) I'm not sure the town is serviced by an internet connection yet.
San Martin 1291
S27 15.109 W55 31.979

Resistencia or Corrientes?

Not much in the way of budget accommodation here. Resistencia is cheaper than Corrientes
Hotel Bariloche in Resistencia, Obligado 239, is central and with secure parking.
Wifi, basic bedroom with private bathroom & TV
S27 27.322 W58 59.213
