Some neighborhoods of Buenos Aires City are unknown even to its own inhabitants. Villa Mitre is a typical case. Many people confuse its limits with close neighborhoods as Flores and La Paternal. Its name tributes the president Bartolomé Mitre (father of Argentinian Constitution). Villa Mitre was born officially on 1908 along with the Villa Mitre Sports Club, a true symbol of this quiet beautiful spot of our City.
Among the most emblematic sites of Villa Mitre you can visit: Argentinos Juniors Stadium and Diego Maradona Museum (Boyacá St and San Blas St), the Villa Mitre Sports Club (1540 Gavilán St), the Commerce School (Fragata Sarmiento St and Juan B. Justo Ave), the Our Lady of Consolata Church (Donato Álvarez Ave and San Blas St), the Roque Sáenz Peña Square (Juan B. Justo Ave and César Díaz St) and Asunción Square (Gavilán St and Gaona Ave).
Also on this neighborhood you’ll find a square in tribute of amazing blues guitar player Roberto “Pappo” Napolitano. It is located on Juan B. Justo Ave and André Lamas St. It’s easy to get to Villa Mitre from our Hostel: you have many buses and a train in Retiro Station (6 blocks from our Hostel) to La Paternal Station.
