The Best Party Hostels in Palermo, Argentina

Sorcha O'Higgins

Palermo has been the trendiest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires for some time now, and its wealth of bars and clubs make it the perfect place to soak up the city’s renowned nightlife. Staying in a party hostel in Palermo will certainly give you a unique view of the city, so we’ve rounded up some of the best places to stay that will inject your trip with good times and happy memories.

1. Art Factory Palermo


Art Factory is so popular among travellers and backpackers that it has opened three locations in Palermo following on from the success of the original San Telmo property that has been welcoming visitors for years. Art Factory Palermo is the daddy of the three in the northern neighbourhood, and is decorated with stunning murals by local street artists, adding to the vibrant feel of the hostel. A fun and friendly environment gives you the chance to meet other guests over breakfast or a drink in the bar, and then hit the town with them later on in the night.

2. Art Factory Beer Garden


As the name might suggest, Art Factory Beer Garden has its focus firmly on the right way to start your evening in Buenos Aires. The first Art Factory hostel with a dedicated outdoor drinking spot, Art Factory Beer Garden is located in the heart of Palermo Soho and is there to show you a good time. The pretty beer garden is built around a beautiful old tree, and the exposed red-brick walls really give the patio an inviting atmosphere. Art Factory Beer Garden is the perfect place to stay if you want to take advantage of all the energy Palermo has to offer.

3. Art Factory Soho

The third installment in the Art Factory Palermo family is the Soho branch, located in the middle of Palermo Soho, but at a safe enough distance from the madness that you can nurse your hangover in peace and quiet the next day. Set in a beautiful corner building, Art Factory Soho falls in line with the same great vibes and local artworks as the rest of its brethren, but has a quieter feel that is more like a boutique hotel.

4. Play Hostel


Another hostel that has a prime location in Palermo Soho is the Play Hostel, which is housed in a typical casa chorizo from the 19th century. Its common room and patio area are the perfect place to mingle with other guests before deciding which of the neighbourhood’s bars or clubs you are going to hit up that night.

5. Found

Bar, Pub Grub

This small boutique hostel on the busy Juan B. Justo Avenue between Palermos Soho and Hollywood is a great choice for serious party animals. Run by the owner of the Garden Events – one of the city’s oldest and best summer party planning outfits – Found puts on mini-raves and parties that go on until the sun comes up on its tiny terrace at the top of the building.

6. Caravan

Caravan has it all: a great location in the thick of the Palermo Soho madness surrounded by bars and clubs, a beautiful leafy garden complete with a private pool perfect for those hot summer days or for curing a hangover, as well as chillout rooms for reading and playing games when you just can’t take another night out on the town.
