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

This was a really cool hostel, especially for a solo traveller. It felt like staying in an apartment with friends. The communal areas were great and the rooms were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay there again.

I stayed at la Rayuela about 3 times in 3 years. Maybe 4 months altogether!! 3 differents experiences but 1 main feeling: HOW GOOD it is to be back HOME!!! Of course, the people always make the place. Remember when you read a review that it always depends of who was there at the time... super quite or crazy party,boring... More

Great hostel for quiet stay in BA. Their are only a few rooms so there's not too many people here. Staff are very helpful and Friendly. Rooms are clean and air conditioned. There are only a couple of bathrooms but this was never a problem as there are not many beds. Great stay

I will keep it short. They provide you with everything you need as a backpacker/traveler. Very clean place to sleep, lockers, clean bathroom, good breakfast to start your day, excellent recommendation to visit places and travel around in BA, good location (near Subte), safe. The traveler crowd in the hostel were very interesting and fun people.

The building is beautiful, location is great. Within walking distance to the plaza the Mayo. The breakfast is basic and you get hungry again but we assume it is like this in Argentina? Downside: there are just 2 bathrooms. I had to wait often when somebody showered and I just wanted to use the bathroom. Not that nice. Billiard table... More

Excellent staff, fantastic location, impeccably clean rooms and surroundings and a great kitchen. Fantastic Wifi connection! Close San Telmo, Puerto Madero, micro-center of Buenos Aires. Is a nice option in Buenos Aires.

Close to downtown (San Telmo is the neighborhood filled with a blend of design, history, arts tango and wine) and just 1km from Puerto Madero (the wealthiest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, ultra hip and chic). Comfy, affordable, clean, secure & well designed. The crew is friendly, most of them are higly trained in good universities so they speak really good... More
