I've been to a lot of hostels, this is one of the good ones. Definitely agree with everyone else that this is the best location you could want for a hostel-- my favorite neighborhood of the city, and I used to live here.

Great price.
Cons: rooms are not mixed only girls or boys.

note: there are some private room that are upstairs in a quiet place perfect for couples.

Room Tip: Book your reservation in advance.

We hope you back soon.

We stayed with my boyfriend in the 12 beds dormitory during one week. The room was nice, tidy, but a bit noisy from the cars outside.
Shared bathroom, common areas and the room were cleaned once a day, which is alright. I would have liked the bathroom to be cleaned twice though.
The kitchen is good, you have all you need to cook. Very convenient, because price of restaurant is a bit expensive, so you can save a bit of money. Plus, there is a super market just in front of the hostel, and a carrefour 2 min walk away.
Location is great and safe. Just minutes away from everything.
Staff is nice and friendly. They provide good information, very helpfull.
The breakfast was really nice: cereals, 2 types of bread, croissants, tea, herbal tea, coffee, hot chocolate, jam and dulce de leche.
Good free wifi connexion.

Overall, a great place to stay with a "home" feeling.

I had such a great time at this hostel, met really cool people and the ambiance was very relaxed. Staff was very friendly and helpful, shout outs to Moni, Cami, Lucia and Mauro! Made my stay much better, especially since was my first time in BA. Location is perfect, really close to everything. Subte station is just a couple of blocks away. House is nice also, really cozy. Oh and they have a ping pong table, which was awesome.
Now, some things that can be improved. Management should do a better job with the breakfast. Few times bread was hard as a rock, I think they used same ones from previos days. Maybe they can switch it up a bit for weekends? Bathrooms were also kinda nasty sometimes, really bad smell. And the kitchen was grimy also. Overall though, good times at BA Stop.

I stayed here for a week, initially in the girls dorm then a private room.

Dorm was a good price BUT had no privacy. Glass door with no curtain on one side sat right in reception. You would be in bed with folk sitting right in front in reception on lap tops etc. A couple of the lockers were broken & a guy seemed to be using a locker & coming in whenever he pleased despite reception being right there. I couldn't get a locker as a result. A few dorms are off the reception where music is blaring and everyone going about their business. You have to cross reception to get to the bathroom. Not ideal!

Given the excellent location And vibe however I decided to move to a private room. This was fabulous and very new. Great emailer and was cleaned every day and towels etc provided.

Staff on the whole were excellent but I would agree with an earlier review, one of the Argentinian girls working was very rude. Rudest person I've came accross working in a hostel. Couldn't even be bothered to say hello!

So in summary if it's a dorm you want then be prepared for Noise and no privacy. If you can afford a private room then this is a great find :-)

This hostel is very well located, near some subway stations of different lines, and near some attractions like the National Congress, the Obelisc and Theatre Colon. About the building, it is old, and cause of this sometimes you can have problems with energy or with bats. The bedrooms are ok, they have good and big lockers, and the beds are very confortable. The bathrooms are good, too. But both bathrooms and bedrooms are generally dirty. The internet is good, they have a very fast wi-fi system. Breakfast is good, they have juice, coffee, tea, three kinds of bread, milk, cereals. Could be more (in quantity). About the staff, it is very good, with nice information service, but sometimes they are very rude, especially if you are not american/australian/european. Music goes very high some nights, it could be a problem, too. The decoration is so funny! Like if you were in a street of La Boca, very interesting. People come from all over the world. The price is nice, and they already have some drinks to sell, if you don't want to go out at night. Also have good laundry service. It is not the best hostel of Buenos Aires, but it is not so "partying house" as Milhouse ou Florida, in spite of the quality of sleep could be not so good. But i suggest it to all travelers. It was a good choice.
