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.

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!
