Good location, average facilities. Staff are very helpful and can help you book most things, except for the glacier trekking which is a bit odd because that's what everyone comes to do. They also told me the incorrect pick up time for my bus to El Chalten which almost caused me to miss it. Breakfast is not worth the money at all, use the good kitchen facilities instead.


A small cabin-like hostel just across the bridge from the main strip of shops. Competent staff. Clean hostel. Dorm rooms were too small, stuffy, with tiny showers and bathrooms, and not enough room for luggage (although they do have lockers). Breakfast was 80 pesos and mediocre at best. Kitchen facilities were rubbish, with only around 3 spoons for the entire hostel. They have trips available from the hostel but they are are very expensive.


I loved the bedrooms (with bathrooms and showers inside them) and the building itself. The receptionists were very kind and helpful, and I felt absolutely comfortable. The only things I would complain about are the tv (you couldnt change the channel) and the price of the breakfast (i think it is too expensexpensive, even though there were many options to choose). Loved the experience! Thanks!
