Accommodation Locations

All of our homestays are located in the best neighborhoods of the city and always within 40 minutes of the Expanish school, but many of them are much closer than 40 minutes as that is the maximum commute.

Buenos Aires is a very large city, so it is common for students to take public transportation (subway or bus) to get to the school each day, just like the locals do.

Accommodation Options

Homestay

Homestay gives you the opportunity to experience the everyday life and customs of a local Argentine family. You can stay in a single room or a double room (a double room is reserved for two people traveling together). A homestay is the best option if you want to practice your Spanish as much as possible and improve your conversation skills quickly. You will share two daily meals with the family and will have plenty of opportunities to speak Spanish on a regular basis.

Student Accommodation FAQ

HOMESTAY/SHARED APARTMENT

  • Do I meet the host family before I move in?
    You will meet your family the day that you arrive in Argentina and move into your housing. All of our host families have been checked and approved by an Expanish staff member, and most of them have been working with us for a long time, meaning they have hosted lots of students.
  • Is it just one student per homestay?
    We have many homestays that we work with, and some families host only one student while other families host many students at once. Many of our hosts only have one room available (since large homes are not common in Buenos Aires) so we cannot guarantee you will be with other students but if you have a preference one way or the other, feel free to note this when you register for a program and we will do our best to accommodate your special request within our network of host families.
  • Do all homestays have WiFi?
    Yes, all of our housing options come with guaranteed WiFi.
  • Where are the homestays located?
    All of our homestays are located in the best neighborhoods of the city and always within 40 minutes of the Expanish school, but many of them are much closer than 40 minutes as that is the maximum commute. Buenos Aires is a very large city, so it is common for students to take public transportation (subway or bus) to get to the school each day, just like the locals do.
  • Can I live walking distance to the school?
    The best neighborhoods to live in (Recoleta, Palermo, Belgrano, etc) are not within walking distance of downtown (where the school is located). These areas do have the best nightlife but they also have the nicest parks and the best restaurants, and it is where everyone lives (students, visitors and families). If walking is a top priority for you, please note that when you register. Although we cannot guarantee it, we always take into account a student's preferences when looking at our network of host families.
  • Can I have my host’s email address?
    Because our hosts often do not check their email, we prefer students to contact us directly if they have any questions about their Homestay or Shared Apartment. If you would like to say “hello” to your host, we can happily give you a phone number you can reach them by.

STUDENT RESIDENCE

  • Who will I share a room with?
    The Student Residence will match you with someone of the same sex, also taking into account your nationality, travel dates, and interests.
  • Can I walk to school?
    The Student Residence is located in the neighborhood of San Telmo, about 15 blocks from Expanish. It is walkable and there are plenty of bus routes if you choose public transportation.
  • How many other students are in the residence?
    There are 41 rooms over 5 floors which usually house around 50-70 Argentine students and foreign travelers. Expanish usually has anywhere between 4 to 10 of our students staying in the Student Residence at a time.

GENERAL

  • What is the most popular student housing option?
    The Homestay is Expanish’s most popular student accommodation option due to the Spanish immersion experience.
  • When will I get more information about the accommodations I chose?
    You will receive information about your host, location, and amenities (depending on the option you chose) two weeks before your first day at Expanish.
  • Can I change the option that I chose?
    Your satisfaction is important to us, so if something does not meet our high quality standards or the Expanish guarantee then students can ask the Housing Director to change rooms within the same accommodation type, such as Homestay to another Homestay. Students cannot change from a Homestay to the Student Residence, for example.
