I booked a dorm space at Rancho Urbano with quite a few other friends during the Spring of 2015. Let me tell you, it was hands down the worst hostel i have ever stayed in. The one week i was there, I woke up with dozens of bedbug bites (my friends did as well), and never saw the staff clean...

Very good location, on Corrientes close to the subte (metro) and the Abasto mall. I stayed in a room with 8 beds and a shared bathroom which was horrendous. Cobwebs in every corner, pee splatter on toilet seat, clearly not wiped down sink/faucet, no toilet paper or soap. To be honest I rarely used the bathroom and tried to use...

Even though it's cheap it's not worth it. The bed in our room was broken and we were told we would have to pay extra for a room with private bathroom because that was all that was available. Unacceptable. Staff unhelpful and just kept saying their boss was away. Everything was a bit unclean and dusty. Sheets too small for...

We would not recommend...

I'm not one to complain but my experience here was not the greatest. I would not recommend staying here if you are a fellow backpacker looking to enjoy this vibrant city. The check in process was less than pleasant and the woman snatched my water bottle out of my hands as their policy states "no outside beverages are allowed in...

My niece and I went to Rancho Urbano after leaving another hostel which was terrible. The service was friendly and professional, they must have used some of the feedback from previous reviews to up their game. We checked the mattresses and around for bugs and the gal showing us the room waved off our apology saying yes, it was important!...
