I've just booked HI Hostel Florida
The prices are very good, around 20 US$ per night on shared rooms, 41
US$ per night on single rooms and US$ 46 per night on double rooms (a
bed for a couple, I already checked by phone). Likely most people know
HI Hostels, but I think it's worth suggesting. The first time I went
abroad I didn't know about them.

Buenos Aires also has other hostels
<http://hostelsuites.com/hostels.php?idioma=2>. Maybe locals could
inform which are the closest to the Wikimania event place. For me
Hostel Florida seems OK.




Dear Tom,

Hostel Florida is about nine blocks away from CCGSM, the venue for Wikimania 2009. I think you will be fine there, if you like going through touristy-financial districts :). You'll have a nice glance of Buenos Aires.

While we can encourage and help attendees to find an accomodation fitting their preferences --I'm affiliated to HI, BTW--, we have already made an agreement with Hotel Bauen for a *really* cheap price for a hotel of its type and location, on the other hand just two blocks away from Wikimania. It's better for organizative reasons to have a centralized prearranged offer and then let make his particular choice to anyone that wants so.


PS: You may excuse my 2 AM English.
