“Great price, great people, great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2008

My friends and I stayed at the BAIT for 4 nights in a private triple with bath. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff is great and very helpful. We became friends with one of the employees and he even took us out to a local house party. The hostel in a very hip neighborhood, Palermo Viejo. You have many shops, bars, and restaurants around. And yes, it's only two blocks from Plaza Serrano. That place is packed every night.
I wouldn't consider this place a party hostel like others you find in downtown BA. But you can go up to their bar, have a drink, and listen to live music. It's a great place to chill.
If you are looking for a cheap, safe, and fun place to stay in a great location, the BAIT is just for you.
