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

When I was in Buenos Aires I first stayed in one of the gigantic hostels on Av Florida (from memory) and felt very alone in the city, despite being around so many travellers. After a couple of nights I decided I didn't want to stay any longer there, and searched for something smaller where I wouldn't feel like just another... More

The vibe in this place is unreal! Christian and his staff are wonderful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Beds are clean and comfortable and bathrooms spotless. The location is great and close to everything. I loved this place! I would definitely go back.

I stayed at Rayuela for 1 month while doing a Spanish course just round the corner from the hostel. Christian, Rama, Camilla, and Laura were/are just lovely, they are such good hosts and people: kind, caring, helpful, and so friendly. I also met some of the most interesting people from my travels whilst staying at this hostel. It's not a... More

Breakfast is pathetic (cheap cornflakes and croissants, coffee pot wasnt refilled) sheets don't fit the bed so you end up sleeping on the bare mattress after turning at night, showers are filled with mould, sinks blocked for three days, wifi is off and on, MOST of all the security of this place is not good. The front door is locked... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for a week in February. We were bowled over by the generosity and friendliness of the staff there. I cannot speak highly enough of Christian, Rama, Cami and Leon. The hostel is well located close to the metro and the funky san Telmo district. It's in a cool old building with high ceilings and... More
