We stayed because of the off street parking they offered for a motorcycle. The first two nights the staff stayed up partying until after 4 and 5 am despite their own signs saying absolute silence was required after 1am. The place is dirty and needs some maintenance. The owner and a couple of nice desk staff were helpful. I hope... More

It has a lot of potential, but the place is literally falling apart. We had a double with private bathroom, and both were more dirty than you could imagine. Everything in the bathroom was broken. The washbasin was about to fall on the floor and water was dropping DIRECTLY on the floor. The shower was simply unusable. Moreover, they charged... More

Kilca is on the verge of being an epic budget backpacker hostel in downtown Buenos Aires. The house is beautifully laid out and even offers a lovely front entrance and patio large enough to accommodate my BMW touring motorcycle. The staff are very chill and helpful. The ambiance at Kilca gets even better when the record player fills the common... More

If you want a really cheap stay without being sold trips or anything. This hostel services your needs. Staff is super nice and will help you. But Arent fully available all the time. So you need to be out going, but the openness of everything alows for you to create a argentinian experience truly unique.

One of the most horrible Hostels we have ever been. Even in Vietnam there were more clean rooms. After a 16 hour flight the hostel stuff was having a BBQ in front of our room....and the included breakfast was not there...WIFI didnt work...so we left after one night. No money back...I know why you have to pay before your stay...because... More

Do not recommend. Tons of negative reviews for the place on hostelworld, and all well-founded. The place has plenty of potential, but the owners don't invest in basic upkeep. My bedroom had mold on the walls and the bathrooms had mold and spiderwebs. The first night of my stay there was no hot water in the showers and the next... More

We stayed at Kilca for about 2 weeks, due to its great rate and accessible parking for motorcycles in the courtyard. There aren't too many affordable places downtown and Kilca offers cheap accommodations as well as an owner who is great to help out with whatever needs one might have. Make sure you book your first night in via on-line... More

This is the best place in BA for moto people, and its very good value at $10USD per day. Kilca was great - its setup in a turn of the century mansion. I met the owner the first day and he let me store my motorcycle for free for a few days while I was away on the other side... More

I do not recommend people to stay there. The neighborhood is good but the cleanliness and the quality of sevices is pretty poor. As other people say, there are instects, breakfast is very inconsistant, the bathroom was broken while I was there, the matresses are pretty dirty, the bar has no drinks because the fridge is broken.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
