I stayed in Rayuela on multiple occasions during my travels in Buenos Aires, and I must say it is my favorite hostel. It's in a beautiful historic building in a fantastic location with easy access to the whole city. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was super tasty ( homemade bread and medialunas,yumm!) The kitchen seemed brand new,and the... More

Positives: Wonderful staff. We went out on a few nights out with them, they gave great advice and the owner even cooked barbecue for everyone on the first night. The location is excellent and the safety is also very good. Negatives: It could do with a bit of a spring clean.

We stayed here December 2014 for two nights. Christian who runs the hostel is trying to do a good job but is let down by his staff. We arranged a taxi from airport which was waiting for us. But the charge was less than the hostel advised...There is a different charge for domestic terminal. A very honest taxi driver... On... More

BED BUGS!!!!! I had left a review on hostel world but my review got edited... We stayed for 5 nights and I was eaten alive by bed bugs. Despite them giving me my stay for free, I wouldn't recommend staying here unless this problem is sorted. I moved beds 3 times and every time I got bitten. Otherwise good potential,... More

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 stayed here for one night (I booked two nights! They have signs letting the visitor know that they try there best and if we need anything let them know! 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
