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

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
