Wonderful hostel, great friendly and flexibel staff, spacious dorm, socket in locker!!! Locker big enough for entire bag! Enough facilities in bathroom. Good breakfast. Living room with Netflix for rainy days and two computers for free use. Very good wifi in the entire hostel! In short: what else could you wish for?! :) Location is in a good neighbourhood: Palermo, with lots of nice restaurants and bars. A bit far from the city center, where all the sights are, but we took that for granted!


I had a great stay at back in ba. The location of the hostel is very good, very close to the nice bars, restaurants and boutiques of Palermo Viejo. The staff is helpful, my private room was nice (clean but a bit old) and quiet (located next to the front door, but this did not bother me). What made my stay amazing, however, were the nice people I met in the hostel!

Half ot the crew was a little rude (although some of them were awesome!). My only big complaint about the hostel is my room. They put us in a room next to the main stair that leads to the common/recpetion room. The problem was that our room was realllllyy noisy. Everytime someone would go up, we could hear everything, even if people were not partying. Besides that, the hostel was really good and really worth it!


Literally have nothing to complain about, Palermo location is amazing, staff were so helpful and kind all the time. Was here for a week and I loved it. Whether you want to party or just chill out (they have Netflix!!!) it's the perfect hostel!


I wish I'd stayed here longer. I stayed at back in ba for my last night in buenos aires, and it was perfect. The staff was lovely and helpful, the common areas were clean and pretty and atmospheric, and I LOVE that in the dorm rooms they have the little curtain around each bed for privacy. Would stay here again any time.

This is honest place. For a couple, is ok. Not more not less, than the essential. We recommend! Rather I believe that for solo travelers is better, like the most hostels that i know. Thanks for your hospitality.

Great hostel. I had a bunk in one of the dorm rooms. The curtain for the bed is a great idea, it is simple, but adds surprisingly adds a lot of privacy. I stored my bags there for a night when I took a day trip, and they were safe and sound. They are very helpful and the area is perfect.


I had a really nice time at the back in ba hostel. The staff is super friendly and very helpful. Also I really liked the patio of the hostel, a really chill place to hang out.. The room was quite pretty, comfy and clean!


Great hostel - friendly and helpful staff and in a great location too. Would definitely stay there again
