We had a really poor experience booking the trips. Emailed weeks in advance, given assurances could book on arrival, offered to pay in advance anyway but reassured no need as low season, then on arrival foully booked. The person on the front desk was super efficient if not apologetic, but was clearly struggling to do the job of 3 people as there were long delays. Away from the booking experience smart place.


Expensive breakfast. One four bed dorm only got one key to share with four people. If your roommate took the key to toilet / shower/ kitchen or anywhere u don't know, you are screwed! Internet is very slow especially in peak hour.


This hostel is conveniently located within walking distance of the bus station. It has hot water, beds to sleep in and a kitchen area (with minimal cookware). My only complaint is that the woman who greeted my friends and I upon our arrival wasn't very friendly or helpful in providing us with information about things to do in the area.


Staff should be more polite


Main negative is the bunks have little space between them ie height wise. Bump your head each time you get in/out of bed. Staff very friendly/helpful. Eating area large, warm rooms,hot water always. Cooking utensils could be updated.


i stayed for 2 nights as i was passing by el calafate. it is a really nice hostel. but i also think it is way to expensive for what you get! i know el calafate is expensive in general ( but beautiful ). i had to put on my bed myself and it had hair in my laundry. while the maids where hanging out at the hostel smoking fags and watching football. know i dont mind doing that but not for that price! also the 4 bed and the 7 bed dorm cost exactely the same. the staff was friendly.


We enjoyed our stay in El Calafate. The staff at the hostel helped us to book some tours, which we also enjoyed.

We stayed here twice. Cabin like hostel which was clean, comfortable with underfloor heating and hot showers. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast expensive but we just bought our own and ate it in the kitchen. Only negative point would be the lack of kitchen utensils and no electric kettle.


Only stayed one night, very large hostel, felt like a hotel. Each 4bed room had en suite, might be annoying if your last in though. Large kitchen/dinning area, good value, good location just over the bridge at the end of town


No stuff to cook a good menu! Old plates no spoons and forks....


Kitchen is not ideal for the number of people, very small and in a strange location. Good floor heating in rooms. Was fine for our 2 day stay


helpful and friendly hostel. good wifi. lockers in rooms. kitchen area reasonably equipped although no oven, only cook tops


Most of the rooms are situated next to a area where guest smoke and talk all night long. Which results in a stinking room and no quietness. Something you don't want if you need rest.


Feels more like a hotel than a hostel.
