Hey everyone,

My girlfriend is out in Buenos Aires and is looking for somewhere that has skype as the place she used has unexpectedly closed down. Can anyone help with any place that they know? She lives in Recoleta so somewhere near there would be better, but anywhere that you know of would be a massive help.

She has tried regular interent cafes but they won't let her download skype for some reason and pay phones are really expensive.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

When I was in Bs As it was xmas so I called home and I found it really cheap. I just asked to use the hostel phone and it was less than a pound for 20 odd mins probably. I was well surprised I have to say.

When I was there last year we stayed in the HI hostel on Humberto Primo (I dont know the districts very well - near San Telmo) and there was a small internet place (not a cafe like a shop with about 8 computers and sweets) across the road and we skyped from there. Hope this helps? This was a year ago so the place may be gone.

There were a few places in the centre also that we went to a few times that let you use skype but I do remember it was hard to find, if she looks near the pedestrian zone in the centre (my mind is going blank as to street names) she'll find one there, a lot are located downstairs.
