The pop music-themed Play Hostel of Buenos Aires' trendy Palermo neighborhood is a friendly, laid-back place for travelers from all over the world to relax and enjoy some great tunes. Occupying a renovated colonial-style home with five guest rooms, it is staffed with wonderfully warm and helpful people who provide tours, bicycle and car rentals, laundry service, massages and tickets to tango shows and soccer matches. The guest rooms feature parquet floors, wooden furnishings and, in some cases, private bathrooms and music-themed décor. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hostel and guests have access to lockers, a cable TV lounge, library, sunny patio and well-equipped kitchen.
The hostel is located in Buenos Aires' bohemian Palermo Soho neighborhood in the midst of hip cafés and shops. It lies five blocks from the Plaza Italia and six blocks from the Plaza Serrano. The Jorge Newbery Airport is less than four miles away and the touristy Recoleta neighborhood is less than three miles to the east.

Guests can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast each morning on the patio. It includes coffee, milk, tea, bread, jam, butter, croissants and alfajores (traditional sandwich cookies filled with dulce de leche).
