Liked: A very good place to be in BA. It's central and a 4 "quadras" from Avenida de Mayo, in Microcentro. It's not a party hostel so you can be relax a nd have a good time. If you like party this place is not for you. If you like a excelent place to rest in the late afternnon and in the end of the day, this is great. You have a nice kitchen and living room. The rooms are very good and the bathroom is aswome.

Liked: every thing was perfact. friendly and helpful staff, location, big room, 2 kitchens, proper utensils and dishes and very well maintained property, but highlight is a lift and it is a blessing.

Liked: One of homeliest, most friendly and welcoming hostels ive ever stayed in. Super easy to meet people, and the staff and travellers hang out like good friends. It was really quite intimate and layed back, perfect for a solo traveller who wants to ease into Buenos Aires and meet fun poeple.

Disliked: the front room can get a little noisy, but that´s really minor factor that shouldnt tarnish the incredibly friendly atmosphere in the hostel.

Liked: breakfast is good.There are two machines for internet.

Disliked: In common sense, hostels in SouthAmerica often don't have their sign on street, so you really need a note of their address to find the location. Specially this hostel has place in office/resident buliding, you need to know a suite number, too. one of toilets were out of order for my entire 3days.

Liked: Very friendly and welcoming staff. Free internet. Student feel to the hostel. Beautiful apartment with original features. Generous sized room (I stayed in a private double en-suite)Underground extremely close, and main square (Pl de Mayo) only 10-15 mins walk.Fridge and kitchen facilities

Disliked: Could be quite noisy at night (like 2am), but I imagine that depends on the people staying at the time.

Liked: Un estupendo hostel, con ambiente familiar y muy agradable. Siempre dispuestos a facilitarte el viaje y aportarte la mejor información que necesitas durante tu estancia. Te dá la oportunidad de compartir la experiencia con gente procedente de todo el mundo ya que el entorno quel Hostel fomenta es muy discendido y propio para interelacionarse y vivir una experiencia muy enriquecedora. Las instalaciones son buenas y el staff muy cercano al viajero y a sus necesidades. No sólo repetiría, si no que no probaría a volver a otro lugar que no fuese Rayuela.

Disliked: SARA left no negative feedback.

Liked: The best living area I saw out of any of the hostels, guitars, bongos, foozball, pool table! Really awesome if you had a bit of time to kill. Also the main lady makes some really good media lunas every morning.

Disliked: The staff had a lot of people over and a lot of friends so it was sometimes hard to know who was working there and who wasn't.
