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...

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

Well, this hostel proved to be the hardest to review so far I have stayed here for 4 nights after traveling in South America already 5 months. Honestly it can be great or total disaster depending on personal luck. It deserves very good rating for number of things but for others terrible seems too generous. I ve ranked it average,... More

We were at the Ritz Hostel in late November 2013. We came in from London, caught a Manuel Tenda bus for 90 Pesos. It took us to their depot in BA. They then put us onto a free taxi to the Ritz. The Ritz is a very large building in the very centre of BA. The rooms are large. The... More

It's really downtown, besides a little bit old,it's cozy and the staff is really good and simple. They give you all the support necessary and help you get around the city. The breakfast is also good. Even downtown, it's really quiet and you can also relax.

At about USD 9 a night really good value. Nice breakfast. Wi-fi. Great location walking distance to main attractions like Plaza Mayo, Obelisk and downtown. Subte or subway at doorstep. Helpful staffs who helped to print ferry and bus tickets. Room has heater. Bathroom has nice hot water. The only negative comment is the low headroom at the lower bunkbed.... More
