"The quirkiness of the decor is impressive but my favourite thing about my stay was the reception staff - they were so helpful and friendly and I felt that nothing was too much trouble."

About Art Factory

We call this place Art Factory because it combines a blend of art, style and fun in an old mansion house of 900m2 in the oldest neighborhood of Buenos Aires. The Art Factory is a hostel designed by architects, graphic designers, street artists, illustrators and all kinds of creative people.
Our philosophy is that travel is an art. Everyone deserves a bit of art and beauty in our daily lives, so this is our bit: a funky and happy place for travelers worldwide.
Each room is unique, because it was painted by a different artist following an original idea. This concept turns each room into a piece of art. Fun, surprising, intriguing!
