The staff was very friendly and warm. Also it's just a few blocks from Plaza del Mayo and a subway stations.


The breakfast was poor, and if you wake up later than the other guests, you may end up with almost nothing to eat. The bathrooms are dirty, and I'm pretty sure they are not cleaned at all. The room was ok and the location was very good, near a subway station, but I wouldn't stay there again.


Nice hostel, i'll definitely come back.


The location and facilities were excellent except for the bathrooms - too few. Also, the German receptionist was really nice. The hostel totally lacked the atmosphere that comes from having a lot of travellers gathered, though, and it felt more like being in someone's home because of the fact that three out of four rooms were occupied by one family with members of all ages. That was quite a shame.


I had such a wonderful time in this homy hostel, I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a friendly and comfy place in the heart of the famous bohemian quarter of San Telmo. The owners are absolute lovely people always ready to help you put or cook you something delicious!! This was definitely the perfect place to make new friends and have a typical Argentine experience! I already miss them all!!! I'll be back ;) Beso grande a todos!


The location of the Hostel in Buenos Aires is great, next to a metro-station and the City-center is within walking distance. Lovely staff who were really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was good and they have a nice common area as well as a good kitchen and good breakfast. All in all I really enjoyed my stay in Buenos Aires and the Rayuela-hostel.


This warm, friendly hostel is very well-located, close to basicly everything, and I felt safe and very much at home there. The staff is very nice, a crew of international girls; a young yet relaxed atmosphere. The kitchen provides a big fridge and lockers, that can be used by everyone. We cooked and ate together often. The value for money is 100% ok.


most guests stay at this hostel long-term and work there, we were the only ones actually travelling so there was no atmosphere and no ability to meet people here. the location was however great and there is strong security needing to get buzzed through two doors, a big kitchen which you can use and pool table. breakfast is below average just bread and butter and jam. overall it was okay, wifi wasn't good at all, but don't go here if you are hoping to meet people.


Rayuela was great, the staff was very kind and helpful. It´s not a party hostel, but a one where you can rest peacefuly. Is in the center of the city, near most of the touristic places of BsAs and have all the facilties needed, like supermarket, colectivos (buses) and subtes (subways) stops, restaurants, and even discos at a range of two blocks. What my sister and I liked the most is that they were working everyday in improving the place. They even upgraded us to a better room for no extra charg


It's a very basic hostel, has everything you need and that's it. It's very relaxed and laid back. The staff is great. The WiFi works well in the dorm rooms but not really anywhere else (strange). The bathroom/shower floors could use a deep scrub & be cleaned more often. Breakfast is bread and cereal, no juice. Love that the AC can be used any time you are in the room. That was a huge plus. The lockers are also great and dorms are spacious.


It's a small hostel with nice rooms. They have a nice breakfast and the location of the hostel is good. The staff is friendly, especially noeli. Because there are not so many rooms it's not so easy to meet other travellers and the bathroom could have a little more light.


Great Hostel! The staff is very kind and helpful. They made us feel us home with friends. Location is excellent, it's near most of the historical places in the city. I'll definitely be back! Thank you guys!

This hostel has great potential. Breakfast was average, not always on time depending on who was working that morning. Owner cooked one night which was great! Didn't see the bathrooms get cleaned for my entire stay but luckily only few guests at the time!


It was an excellent experience! The staff was in every detail, and did a wonderfull experience for every guest! I'll recommend visit Rayuela!

Can't really fault this hostel, stayed here for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Staff were pleasant & helpful and the bbq night in particular was a highlight. 1 slight drawback: the hostel can only cater for about 20-25 people, and during the early part of my stay there was a good group around but it became quiet during my final few nights. Obviously this is no fault of the hostel but for lone travellers this is perhaps not the best place to meet people. However still a great hostel
