Read fully: If anyone else has had such an experience, I would be interested in any details to help explain this situation.
Tangueray hostel is a very good location and the staff very helpful in terms of directions and assistance. In terms of cleanliness, bathrooms and surrounding living areas were clean. Now, for my major concern, something which I did share with those running the hostel. I arrived in Buenos Aires in perfect health and quite honestly have rarely been sick in terms of my travels internationally for the past 20 plus years. I know everyone talks about bug bites, mosquitoes, etc., however, a major allergic reaction is another matter all together. I stayed in one of the two single rooms in the back on the top floor. There is no fan, etc. inside. A window is left open and you are advised to leave your door open so you don't suffocate--which I am not exaggerating. During the first few days I suffered several bites, mosquitoes or otherwise--don't know yet. On my fifth day when I left (and I finally asked for a small fan which they lent me), obviously I was bitten further during the night). By the time I arrived in Uruguay, my arms and legs were completely covered in red welts and I suffered itching profusely-no fever mind you. Fortunately my face was unaffected and most of my upper torso except for one spot unaffected. In Uruguay I went to a pharmacy which sent me to a public hospital where that night I began treatment. The following day not much improvement so a nurse came to give me an injection and I continued treatment. By the fourth day, it began to lessen so I could function without itching completely and the red welts diminishing. Since I did not know this was going to happen, I returned to the hostel to stay the night of my departure since I had previously paid for the room. I did advise them to put a screen on the window and let them know what had happened. On the following day, I seem to be having a bit of a relapse, not as bad but am still battling it today and will need to go in to a clinic for further treatment. I am not allergic to any food items and have never had a reaction like this before, leading me to believe that either there is something in the bedcovers or room itself which triggered such a violent attack. Yes, we can all expect mosquito bites or bites of some sort, however, this needs to be fully investigated. I would not stay there again, for healthwise, it just about ruined my vacation. I am hoping that within a week's time my body will return to normal. I am not exaggerating--this was major and unpleasant. However, I will still state that the people there were friendly and accomodating. The other aspect needs to be investigated.
