3. Modern, cool and homely

Caravan BA is a beautiful mix of a hotel and porteña home.

Taking important aspects of a hotel – modern, cool, clean facilities and safety – and mixing it with a family atmosphere of a porteña home, is truly wonderful. In fact, it is what makes this boutique hostel so unique.

However, we haven’t mentioned the third ingredient: Hostel magic, nonetheless!

And this hostel has a lot of magic up its sleeve. Throw together special events, a garden bar, swimming pool, a big kitchen and a meeting place, and it is a recipe for some seriously good times.

When the day comes to a close, rest assured that the variety of private and shared rooms will satisfy your needs.

Try not to oversleep in the comfy beds and make it down in time for the buffet breakfast.

What makes this breakfast unique is that it is prepared with local ingredients, and homemade by the ‘Mama’ of the hostel, aka Viviana.
