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.

High ceilinged old courtyard house in a charismatic neighbourhood in BA. We stayed in a double room which was basic but atmospheric! The owner and staff are super friendly and relaxed and the kitchen is available at all times. An easy place to hang out in the city :-)

I was in and out of Buenos Aires for about a month. I loved my time there. The people that were there made me feel at home. The first part of the stay was so nice, because the internet did not work. We got to know each other better without the internet. Me gusta KILKA!

Kilca was a great place to relax. The communal lounge is big and spacious and cool in the summer. It's a great place to get to know the owners Guido and Dani and chat with the other guests. There is always a group meal happening and another chance to get to know your fellow travellers. Guido and Dani are great... More

The charm of this place is the people who work and stay here! The owner, Guido, is beyond helpful and friendly. He does his best to help you find your way about the city, suggests great attractions, and will do his best to help you in any other way. If you're looking for luxury, this isn't your place. It is...

Dead cockroaches everywhere in our room and black slugs in our private shower, this hostel was a complete disappointment. I thought we were staying some place with character, but really the rustic look you see in photos is actually extremly run down in reality. I booked thinking our private room would be $30 USD a night but they charge us... More

The hostel itself is a very nice place... But it is dirty, there were cockroaches in our shower, the kitchen even in the fridge. It's cheap and you get what you pay for! If you wanna save money it's cool but I would recommend to go to another hostel in BA!
