Me, my wife and my 3 years old son stayed at BA Stop. The highlights are location, very close to Obelisco and 9 de Julio avenue and the staff: Everyone were so lovely to us especially to our baby. The only issue was the screams and noise of others guests in just one night after 11 pm.


We greatly enjoyed our stay at BA Stop -- the staff are awesome, our room and the common areas were clean and spacious, the location makes it easy to get anywhere, and it's a pleasant and social enviroment.


A fun little hostel that's small enough so that you get to know most of the people in the hostel! Breakfast is better than a lot I had in South America. Showers are hot and beds are super comfortable. Very cheap for this area of Buenos Aires.


It was very enjoyable stay. We've spent the weekend in vacation. The location is awesome! It is near Casa Rosada and Congresso and close to 9 de Julio and A line metro (subte). The downsides are the breakfast which is very simple (but good) and the acoustics are not the best.

wifi not really good, kitchen facility not enough.


Very friendly staff and very central hostel which is fairly cheap compared to the offer in Buenos Aires... the area is ok during the day but not much to do at night, maybe better to pay a bit more and stay in Recoleta or Palermo.


Staff were helpful. It doesn't exude a very bright or happening atmosphere but it was perfectly fine for one night. The beds are a bit small and unsturdy. The WiFi was average.


I booked for a 8 mixed dorm and got a free upgrade to 6 female dorm which was nice. Location is good , right in the middle of everything (supermarket is nearby) . Staff is friendly but not all speak english , for me it wasnt a big problem because I speak spanish but ive heard some people suffer to communicate. Security is very well and get cleaned everyday. The hostel is alright but not outstanding , it doesnt have a very social vibe.


We enjoyed our stay here, it was a great location, and thr room was perfect, not cramped, had nice shelf area, decent bathroom. It was ideal for us. The kitchen was really the only non-perfect thing, as it was a bit cramped... However everything else was great! I'd recommend it, or stay again.


The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. The four bed dorm was large and we had it to ourselves, and the beds got made daily which was great. The breakfast was fairly good too, included croissants which we liked. Would stay again.


The staff is very friendly and helpful, the private rooms are very clean and housekeeping comes every day. The bathroom, especially the shower, is tiny but okay. Linen, sheets and towels are provided free of charge. There are no closets or lockers in the room, though. It can be quite noisy in the nights due to other hostel guests and the streets. The rooms are equipped with ventilators but no a/c. WiFi works everywhere in the hostel and the rooms, the breakfast is not great (variety) but okay.
