I ended up staying here for just over 3 weeks after I first landed in Buenos Aires. I was planning on staying only a few days. It seemed that everyone that stayed there instantly got the Kilca vibe. It was great to relax from the noise of the city, yet close enough to everything you wanted to do. Even after... More

In this hostel we felt very welcome. The people working there are very nice and have great ideas of how you can make the most out of your days in BA. We traveled with a friend in a wheelchair who had no problems moving around. When he was sick the people of the hostel took very good care of him... More

I stayed at Kilca for about 6 weeks and is was the best part of my experience in Buenos Aires. The people that lived there with us were from all over the world and the feel in the hostel was one of community. From the friendly staff that will share stories, wine, and Yerba Mate, the attitude spread to all... More

I stayed at Kilca for a couple of times, nearly 3 months all together, and it’s a really special and nice place to stay. I was fed-up with the previous hostel I was staying in, loud music, a lot of people and bad service. Kilca is a very friendly, homelike hostel with a special vibe that made a big difference... More

Kilca hostel is an ideal place to stay if you prefer a homelike, chilled hostel with a good vibe, rather than a huge, clinic-like one. It has only 5 rooms which makes it easier to get to know the other people who stay there. The patio is amazing, a perfect place to relax in the middle of this huge metropolis.... More

I've stayed in Kilca hostel a few times - and it remains one of my absolute favourite hostels. It has so much character and warmth and I really the location is great as it is close to all the cool spots and places, but just slightly off the beaten commercial San Telmo track. The owners and staff members are really... More

We a family of 3 stayed in Kikca for over a week about a year ago. The place is beautiful and the people who run the place, the volunteers and the dog make the place special. We made some great friends, and Wido even organised tickets for us to go to a football clasico between Independiante and Racing. The asado... More

Kilca was a great place to stay, It was not like every hostel I´ve been. It had more like a home vibe with friendly people as staff that helped me with everything I needed. They have great information about where to go, what to do and also good deals for activities. The place transmits lots of great energy at least... More

I came to this hostel after being completely fed up with another hostel I was staying at in the city center. This place has such an amazing vibe, it feels more like living in a large house than staying in a generic hostel. The staff, a brother and sister are very laid back and amicable and the rest of the... More

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.
