Where to Stay in Tucuman
We started our 3 months South America trip on a 17 hour bus drive from Buenos Aires to Tucuman.
We’ve heard good things about A La Gurda hostel and decided to book a room. What was suppose to be a 4 days stay ended in 2 amazing weeks!
We’ve been to so many hostels the past year and I really wanted to share our experience at this special family run hostel in Tucuman.
This place stands out in every way, But the best of it is the family who runs it, They are such amazing people with big hearts and they made us feel at home and helped us organize our trip.
About the Hostel and Location
A La Gurda hostel is located near the center of town in a nice and safe area. The hostel is quite big: There is a pool table & TV room, a back terrace and a patio which are nice to hang out. The rooms are super cozy with comfy beds and clean showers. Breakfast was typical Argentinian- fresh and delicious and great coffee!
When I was sick Anita, the owner, took care of me like I was her own daughter and also moved us to a bigger private room so we’d be more comfortable. She also cooked for us Tamales salteños : a typical traditional North Argentina dish, which is a kind of maize flour pie wrapped up in corn husks- a must try!
We had such a great time and met so many travelers and new friends. We’re Looking forward to our next visit! Muchas Gracias Analia, Carlos, Jimena and Lordes.
