A bit of a walk to our favourite parts of town, San telmo, Palermo etc. We emailed the hostel a few times before we arrived regarding the exact location, to have a general idea where we were going when we got to BA but never got a response. Staff were a real mixed bag; there was one guy in the evening that was super helpful but couldn't say the same for anyone else we spoke to there. There are better options out there!


Really enjoyed this hostel. Great atmosphere and staff!!


The staff was great with our baby! They were very helpful. Definitely recommend this place for a family traveling.


The bathrooms were everything but clean (including dirty panties lying around during our complete stay of 4 days!). The kitchen was fully equipped, however, things put in the fridge were regularly thrown away by the cleaning staff. The staff was friendly but not helpful when it came to booking e.g. Busses (bus prices to Córdoba named by the staff were 50% lower than actual prices). Also, we had to pay 50ARS per person to leave our bags at the hostel during our last day in BA.

Outstanding as always!! It's my trird time here and the good things to mention is good atmosphere, staff and the many people from all over the world. Not noisy at all by night and in common places they've just installed air conditioning, so in these hot days it is good to stay in. Thanks everyone and I'll be back!!!


Half of the staff was not really friendly and did just the basic. If you were lucky to deal with one of the girl she was really nice and helpful but unfortunately she was really new on the job so she could help but not that much. Last thing we had to pay 20 ARG pesos to leave our backpack at the hostel on the day we were leaving..never seen this before


Vivian was amazing and definitley the reason id stay again and go back. just awesome energy and so helpful and nice. was a great stay.


Really great hostel in a great location (less than 4 blocks from the Obelisk and City Center). The security is great, and the hostel staff are really helpful for when you need to find something/ go somewhere/ book a bus ticket to EZE/ etc. The rooms are big and don't have too many beds in them, so they're nice and spacious, unlike super crowded hostels I've been in before. Breakfast is also great (bread w/ condiments, cereal, coffee, tea, etc). Definitely recommend this hostel!


Great hostel, awesome staff. Will stay again. 5 stars!


BA Stop was a really great place to stay for our first night in Buenos Aires. After a very long journey from the UK, getting into our private room, with clean towels and en suite was just what we needed! Viviene and her team were really welcoming and helpful too. Ooh and the hostel shuttle from the airport drops you off right outside the door!


It's the 2nd time we stayed in the hostel after flying out of BA. We didn't feel like we left for days at all. Everything was in order just like it used to be. Should I mention again that both the Porteno and Brasileiro staff were superb and welcomed us warmly? We'll absolutely come back and hope to get the same room with the perfect view! Regards to Mauro and everyone! ;)


Everything was great! I love that everyone either speaks Spanish or Portuguese and there were heaps of cheerful Brasileiros, the staff were friendly and helpful. The toilet gets a bit dirty but still ok. Location is perfect and accessible to any points of interest within BA. I will definitely come back!
