We stayed here for five nights, and to sum it up - we wouldn't come back here. In overall, the hostel looks good and it does have an amazing location at the center of the city with public transportation to anywhere, BUT we had quite a frustrating stay. There were a few good things though - It's cheap (100 pesos... More

I stayed and worked at this hostel for 6 weeks. I absolutely loved every minute of it. The manager and fellow staff were amazing. The hostel is in an awesome location in the city, had the best breakfast I've had at any hostel in South America and a great DJ at the bar. I would recommend this hostel to anyone... More

I travel mainly to meet new and interesting people. I´ve been travelling in South America and can safely say this was one of my favourite hostels (of about 20) for that reason. The staff are all extremely friendly and fun and there's loads of them so always someone to hang out with when they're off duty. There is also a... More

This hostel has by far one of the best lounge/social areas Ive ever seen. The area has a bar to buy drinks, a pool table to play, a TV, and multiple sofas/chairs to sit down with friends and have a good time. The price that you pay is a great value, especially when you consider its great location. Their included... More

Just stayed two nights at this horrible hostel. There really was no redeeming features about the hostel. It was an old building and really dark inside. The reception is on the second floor and they simply buzz anyone in. Last night two guys came into my dorm room and simply walked around it! The noise is probably the worst aspect... More

The hostel is located in a nice old building, just a ten minute walk from Plaza de Mayo. We stayed in a dorm, with just fine space, and clean. The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast buffet included is good (toast + spreading, including dulce de leche, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, tea). We had a small misunderstanding with one...

We stayed at the Ritz hostel in BA for 6 nights and it was awesome! Rooms are spacious and beds are really comfortable, the common room is a great place to chill and the location is perfect. Juan, the manager is super helpful and a great host. Fernando behind reception is also a legend! Fully recommend you to stay here... More

We stayed in a spacious private room with a big bathroom, up on the third floor. It was all clean, but the whole place could do with repainting etc, and the bathroom fixtures were a bit rusty. The staff were helpful, and the breakfast (for Argentina!) was good. It is really well located right by Lima subte stop. It felt... More
