This was a very average excuse of a hostel. The price advertised breakfast included in the price, yet the "breakfast" was a few pieces of bad quality bread with a few packets of jam and bad coffee with powder milk. You can have a full breakfast, if your willing to pay another 50pesos on top of the room rate. Your not aloud to sit with the people who paid extra for the full breakfast and have to go up another floor. Also if you want cutlery you have to pay 20 peso deposit from 2 floors downstairs
Great Hostel Very conveniently located on the main street of town Very helpful staff in terms of arranging transportation and tours Will definitely stay there the next time I go back
Overpriced! Strange that you have to rent your fork and knife (which got stolen!)... our food got stolen as well from the baskets in the kitchen. It turnend out that this happens more often but nobody told us. Beds are too small and narrow. There was not 1 decent pot/pan in the kitchen!
This was the first hostel I stayed in during my time in Argentina, and what a one to set the bar! The rooms were extremely clean & spacious and had comfortable beds. Greaty location just 5 minutes walk from the town centre & 10 minutes from the bus station. The staff were friendly & helpful , providing lots of information on tours offered. I booked the day trip to perito moreno glacier through them & it was excellent! Thank you for a great stay :)
This hostel is great, well located and one of the best rooms I have ever stayed. It's very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing I did not like is the breakfast, too basic if you are staying in a dorm.
Clean & relatively functional hostel. The staff appear to be overworked and at times frustrated, but helpful on a god day. The breakfast is bread, jam & tea/coffee but the system they have is a little odd, having to pick your bread up from the restaurant & then take it all the way dwn the back to the kitchen, like they don't want hostel guests mixing with the private room guests. You have to hire fork, knife and spoon. This hostel has great potential, but just needs to work on the small things
Great and always helpful staff, cute and nice hostel. Very good kitchen where you meet other travellers. Internet problems do exist...
Location is just off the main road, so pretty good. Better than other hostels that are quite far. Our room was a private one with ensuite washroom, and it seemed quite new and was very clean. The fridge in the common kitchen was full, u can barely fit your stuff in there, and I suspect people forget their stuff there, and it just sits there for a while...not the cleanest fridge. Also some staff were good, but some lacked professionalism.
Fine for a short stay when you are spending most of your time out. Very helpful staff in arranging trips, onward travel etc.

Das Frühstück war ein Witz!! Man bekam drei Stückchen Brot die alt waren Marmelade und Kaffee. Milch war natürlich zu teuer deshalb gab es Milchpulver! Aber das schlimmste war das man damit in das 2 Stockwerk musste, denn in dem Raum in dem es das Brot gab dürften die Essen, die 30 Pesos mehr bezahlten für ein besseres Frühstück! Das geht über Haupt nicht. Der Speiseraum für das minderwertige Frühstück war furchtbar, dann lieber kein Frühstück anbieten!!!!! Für alles muss man extra zahlen.

The staff was unlike any other, friendly, kind and it looks like they enjoy doing their job.
It has a free and comfortable dining room, and the first floor was warm and nice, and bright. And the glacier tour service was also very good.
Rooms are great, we stayed in both private and dorm rooms. The private was very good value for money, spacious and ensuite. The only remark: there's not much to do in El Calafate besides the glacier, but we really missed a nice area to relax in the hostel on the other days. The kitchen was ok, but there was constant extremely loud
Good location, staff very helpful and nice. Nice layout of the hostel. Breakfast was very basic. Need to leave a deposit for cutlery. Kitchen facilities average.
Excellent staff, very helpful with booking buses and tours. Good atmosphere and facilities - has 2 kitchen facilities. Fairly clean.
A very big hostel, well-organised etc. What I really didnt like: 1) wash-stand is built inside the room - inside the bedroom! - so I don't enjoy washing myself being watched from all the bedroom, and besides you for washing you have to turn on the light and disturb everybody in the bedroom. 2) the breacfast "of cortesy" is VERY poor - it's nothing but tea & coffe - it's a shame fore that money! But the stuff, the people, cleannes etc are very good, I'd likely recommend this hostel.
Impersonal feel. Need to leave deposit when using any cutlery. Unequipped kitchen which is of inadequate size compared with number of guests. Friendly reception staff. Good sized lockers. Shower has warm water for short periods only. Very small common area which is open to the busy reception area. Anaemic WiFi, even in common area and reception. It is located away from the town but not too far. Did not have a washing machine or key card access as advertised.
