Perfect location, nice staff, breakfast OK but the toilette are pretty old and a bit dirty.

Definitely the best hostel I have ever been to.(and i know what I'm talking about because i have been stayed and worked in many). Those people are great, the stuff who works there is a group of friends and they welcome everyone as a friend too! Location is outstanding, rooms pretty, ( i got a one with a small balcony), the common area has a bar and is chill and full of good music! Hostel feels like home for travelers. I loved it !

I'd only suggest this place if you have no other place to go.

The location is great. Rooms relatively clean, but bathrooms are a disaster. I booked 5 days, but stayed there for 8 hours. Spent the day walking on the city and at night when I came back to the hostel there was no water. I mean there was not a single drop of water in the whole hostel. For some unknown reason the guy in charge at night insisted to say everyone that there was water, even all the guests saying the opposite. Well canceled my reservation and moved to another hostel at 3:30 am.

We had to drink a lot to survive this hostel. The bathrooms were disgusting and everywhere was mold. The kitchen was dirty and there was just one pot for cooking. We had a good time because of the cool people there. But if you want to visit Buenos Aires go into the Milhouse Hostel, the parties are great there ;)

The location is great, in the corner of av de julio e av de mayo. There is a subway station and a bus stop near the hostel. Good restaurant options near the hostel too. The staff was great. The only problem was the shower. Most of the times there was no hot water. And it was a problem in the whole hostel, not only in the bathroom I was using.

The water would intermittently work, therefore toilets would not flush, and people would have water stopping in the middle of their shower. Also the bathrooms did not seem to be cleaned daily. I would understand if I was in some remote country, but not in Buenos Aires. On a positive note, the staff was cool.

I booked thre nights in this hostel just for being managing by HOSTEL INN INTERNATIONAL - I stayed at H.I.I in San Francisco and it was excellent by far - but in Ritz I have some problems with the cold water. It went and came during the day and the days. My roommates told me that it was the same story since they arrived one month ago. I took shower in the public bathrooms because of that.

Do not bother booking at this hostel! I booked through hostel world, received a confirmation email, then emailed the hostel directly to make doubly sure. They replied that all was booked and they looked forward to seeing me. I arrive in buenos aires late on a Saturday and they claim to have absolutely no record of my booking. Showing them the confirmation email they sent me apparently doesn't count. They then try and tell me I have to come back another day to get my refund. Awful, awful hostel

A good place, cleaner than most budget hostels, and the door is locked which is an advantage. Staff was helpful too, and breakfast pretty good!

The Ritz is at an exellent location, very close to all main attractions. The building is quite old and therefore noisy - we had a room next to the lift and the main staircase and unfortunately we were woken up by people coming in late every night. The room was a decent size. The breakfast is all right. The staff were really friendly and they helped us with tours and information. All in all, an acceptable place and good value for money.

I liked the lobby area where you can play pool or use the computers. The staff was nice. Breakfast was basic, but ok. The room was really small and not clean. There were a lot of hairs on the bed and in the bathroom. Afterall it was ok, since it wasn't that expensive.
