really enjoyed this hostel, stayed here and at the pioneros hostel whilst in el calafate. For space, price, location, cleanliness and facilities I think this one was better than pioneros.


Only 500m walk to the Center (Post Office an Bus Station). Most important: You have to book your Glaciartours more than 3 days in advance.


Ignore the reviews about the bad free breakfast, they've stopped giving it altogether. Charging a deposit just to use cutlery in the kitchen adds to the big and impersonal feel of the hostel. Front desk understaffed, meaning long wait to speak to anyone each time (checking in, hiring knives, forks etc). Clothes damaged by laundry service. Good wi-fi though.


Kitchen poorly equipped , have to pay deposit to get cutlery to use , nuisance. Dorms good and spacious, ensuite shower and WC between 4.


This is a lovely hostel, rooms were very nice, showers really good and the hostel was very clean. Well located, staff very friendly and helpful booking buses, tours and other hostels. However, the breakfast was too basic for the price (not included)… I would recommend it!


Staff were friendly, rooms were nice and breakfast was even better 😄


Worst hostel I've stayed at in Argentina. Kitchen wasn't fully equipped, and don't come here if you're looking for atmosphere. Prices were also higher than what flyers around the hostel said they were and the staff at the hostel would not honor the fact that they hadn't updated their information. Also had to make your own bed upon check in, overall not great value for money.


We stayed in a double room ensuite which is more like a hotel room. Located just at the edge of the city centre, staff are very helpful with bookings and recommendations. Not much of a social atmosphere as it's a family friendly hostel but otherwise would recommend.


One of the best hostels that I ever meet. The staff are just awesome! Very friendly and helpfull.
