Amazing location.


No hot water in 2 days, half the toilets didn't work and generally looked unclean. I would not recommend unless your deseperate


Good WiFi, great location right by metro. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only draw back is small kitchen but you have lots options nearby to eat out cheap.


Great location. Fantastic social vibe that made it easy to meet a lot of cool people. Good rooms. Great social area with 3 computers, pool table, bar and TV.


Not a bad hostel with cheap double bed rooms. I would stay there again


Location was very central and staff were very helpful. The breakfast included was very good. However the bathroom was shared by too many people causing long waiting times.

The location was excellent by plaza mayo but the toilets were old and though cleaned often had a grimy feel to them. The bar was great and breakfast too.

great loaction,clean room ,nice staff and really good breakfast


The staff are awesome! They lost my clothes and then paid for them. Good wifi (but not in the 3rd floor). Breakfast also is great.


This is a lovely place to stay if you want to relax and detox from the party hostels! The staff are awesome and will help you with anything, the beds are comfy and the showers are hot. It's located in the perfect central location of Centro on Avienda de Mayo, so you are close to everything...including Florida street. Great place for a couple of days.


Great location, helpful staff, rubbish kitchen, but food is so good and cheap in ba anyway.


A clean and friendly hostel bang in the city centre of BA. The staff here were exceptional offering great advice and service. So good that we returned to book our tours with them despite moving hostels half way through our trip. The only downside to this hostel (which is more of a hotel) is that there is no social scene to get involved in. Great if you want to relax but not ideal if you want to make the most of the local party scene!


Ideal location

This was great value for BA. We had private en-suite room with aircon and TV for 250 a night and I couldn't find anything similar elsewhere. Breakfast was varied and plentiful. Kitchen was too small for more than 1 person to cook at a time but lots of cheap places to eat nearby. Great location, very easy to get metro to/from bus station. The 'blue dolar' really makes BA a very affordable city even on a backpacker budget.


Great location! Beautiful, historic building! Room was dirty when we got there, had to request new sheets. Large, spacious room with balconies. Staff very helpful! Internet NOT reliable. Leak in the roof during thunder storm - a bit concerning as we were on the middle floor... Kitchen is very very tiny with only one elec stove plate - takes 30 mins to boil water. Not a hostel where you can do own cooking. Breakfast was good, lots of fruit! Would NOT stay there again..


Horrible place. The rooms are dirty, the showers doesn't work properly (on the ones with a private bathroom), the kitchen has a water purifier that does not serve cold water, only hot. The freezer, also located in the kitchen, is a pure mess. When the hostel is full, energy power shuts down every 5 or 6 hours due do overload. The beds aren't confortable either. Unfortunately, of course, 'cause I was expecting a great trip.

We really enjoyed our stay in The Ritz, it had perfect location on 9 de Julio (at night though Palermo is probably a better choice), great atmosphere and nice rooms. Breakfast was included and the bedrooms had AC as well. The only dissappointing thing was that the Wifi would not work in the rooms and only the lounge area, which was a bit annoying and made for example skyping really difficult. Overall though we can recommend the hostel!


Did not like the place, found it kind of dark... It was clean. Although I didn't like the toilets. Not sure if I liked the staff, coz I didn't need them!


The hostel is really good located, really central. The Staff is ok, some of then could be a lit better. The facilities were never clean, and
