This hostel is conveniently located on the Ave. Belgrano in central Buenos Aires. Initial impressions were good as it was clean with nice rooms & friendly, helpful staff. However, later in the evening non residents turned up & proceeded to have a party in the hostel. They were extremely noisy & left the place in a state with empty beer... More

I went to the reception telling the girl that the bathroom var nasty, and the way she cleans it was just by spraying some perfume in there, there was still... More

This was our first stay in argentina and we were satisfied, however it could have been better. The bathrooms were tiny and could have been cleaner. Breakfast was ok, the croissants were tasty. Our room was spacious but a bit tired. The staff were friendly though. Overall an ok option in a Central location

The facility itself is ok, much like any hostel, although the showers were some of the best we've had through South America, but what makes this place is the friendly staff. The hostel wasn't very full, only us and another couple in our 8 bed dorm, a few other people in the other dorms/private rooms, but the staff were extremely... More

This cosy, chilled out hostel met all our needs while staying in BA. It felt like a big house share (which we loved)! The location is really central (Monserrat/San Telmo), the hostel is a nice size so you can meet others; we met lovely people, both guests and staff and has some great nights out. Breakfast is freshly baked croissants,... More

If you are looking for a good place in Buenos Aires to feel like at home, don't hesitate more. Just go to Rayuela. They will receive you like your family. The location is really good. And the rooms comfortable. But the best is the good vibe of the hostel! Thank you to Chris and Camila for all the good moments... More

I originally booked in for 5 days but ended up staying for 9 days. Chris and his staff are extremely friendly. This place isn't an ordinary hostel. Its like a mini home for travellers. Everyone is made to feel included, whether its to the amazing meals that Chris cooks or the nights out, everyone becomes like a little family. I... More

I stayed in Rayela for 4 days with two friends and we couldn't have made a better choice! The rooms were spacious, well decorated, and comfortable. I personally loved the common area for meals. The breakfast was good, with fruit and "medialunas" (small croissants), milk, tea, jam etc, although it wasn't always served on time, which kept us from leaving... More
