This hostel was nice, with homemade bread for breakfast. The thing that really makes this place stand out was the great staff. They were helpful, friendly and genuinely interesting to talk to. I left my hoodie there and after emailing them, they shipped in to Salta for me where I would be in a few days. Honestly don't think most... More

Me and my cousin both had a great time at this hostel, the people and staff were very friendly and it was a great location and cleaned regularly. The roof in the living area did leak a bit but this didn't effect our opinion. I wouldn't stay here if you wanted a higher class of hostel as there were little... More

I wish there were more hostels like this one! Loved the location, the staff, the carne asadas on Thursday, really everything. The breakfast was good. They have a pool table and common room where everyone would chat/drink together. Rooms have a/c. Wifi and computers are available. Went out with the staff and other travelers several times and always had fun.... More

This hostel is in a good location in BA. The staff are very friendly and helpful and it has an OK kitchen if you want to do some cooking. Breakfast is really simple and for some reason they don't put out plates or cutlery. The showers have good hot water but the do smell a bit.

We loved this place! Originally booked for three nights but stayed eight. The staff were absolutely lovely and went out of their way to make our stay amazing. It was a home away from home, and had the perfect balance of being laid back but sociable. Private room was comfy and spacious and reasonably priced. Communal areas and kitchen are... More

A group of us spent 4 nights at Rayuela for the first stint of a 5 month tour around South America. It´s in a good location for exploring Buenos Aires, with both San Telmo and the centre of town within a 5 minute walk. Facilities were modern, breakfast was tasty and the beds were comfy. However, what makes this place... More

I enjoyed my one-week stay at the Rayuela hostel in Buenos Aires. Adequate culinary utensils, clean, good breakfast especially the croissants, good advice from the desk. Most important of all, the hostel owner would invite backpackers in the hostel to have an authentic Argentinian style dinner. Believe me, he's really good at gastronomy. Apart from which has been mentioned, Rayuela... More

I stayed in Rayuela on multiple occasions during my travels in Buenos Aires, and I must say it is my favorite hostel. It's in a beautiful historic building in a fantastic location with easy access to the whole city. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was super tasty ( homemade bread and medialunas,yumm!) The kitchen seemed brand new,and the... More

Positives: Wonderful staff. We went out on a few nights out with them, they gave great advice and the owner even cooked barbecue for everyone on the first night. The location is excellent and the safety is also very good. Negatives: It could do with a bit of a spring clean.

We stayed here December 2014 for two nights. Christian who runs the hostel is trying to do a good job but is let down by his staff. We arranged a taxi from airport which was waiting for us. But the charge was less than the hostel advised...There is a different charge for domestic terminal. A very honest taxi driver... On... 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.
