My hostel is close to Plaza de Mayo, on Hipólito Yrigoyen 855 street. What's the best way to get there from Pistarini airport?
This shuttle bus operator can take me to Terminal Madero: tiendaleon.com/resultados/bu...
But are there any shuttle bus that stops at Plaza de Mayo or do I need to take a taxi from Terminal Madero to the hostel?
As I remember the bus from Pistarini airport will drop you off to your hotel with a change into a minivan
This is how it work. The bus will stop at their terminal depot, you'll get off there and if you have a name and address from your hostel show it to the driver
There are different minibus inside who can take passengers in any location around BA. The minibus will drop you off to your hostel
After customs, the slide doors open, and you will see some booths with taxis and remis (car with driver). Also a booth for Shuttle (lok for MANUEL TIENDA LEON and ask specifically for SHUTTLE - they will try to sell you a remis). If you have more budget, choose remis (usd 60 One Way) I usually prefer a remis (I always call the same, Mr. Oscar Diaz - [email] and he is honest and efficient).
If you take the shuttle you will arrive to Puerto Madero station (as you mentioned) and from there you must take a taxi for 15 minutes to San Telmo. For to pay a taxi, you will need to have local currency, PESOS. It´s not a bad idea to have an app EASY TAXI so you can call the taxi with the app. It´s a little bit more safe because you know who is the taxi driver. Once in Buenos Aires, feel free to contact me.

Thanks, but doesn't taxi drives accept US Dollars?
Well, maybe yes or maybe not. But you must use Argentinian Pesos. The fare is indicated in PESOS. If you pay with US dollars (ask before if the driver accepts) you will also need to negotiate the fare. With the new goverment (2 weeks ago) is a little bit more easy (USD 1 = 13,50 ARS) but before we had more than 5 different quotations for USD.
My suggestion again, is to use ARS
Do the taxi drivers accept Mastercard?
Nope. 99% don´t accept ANY credit card. Only cash
