America deal Sur has great views and a good sized communal area for breakfast and relaxing. However we didn't have a good experience. The lockers in the rooms are broken and easily opened even with a lock on. The bathroom door was broken so we couldn't open or shut it which was awkward sharing the room with strangers. We heard the breakfast was amazing but we didn't think it was anything special, just bread and cereal which is standard for hostels in this area. We also found flies everywhere.

A great atmosphere and the staff is very helpful. Nice to get a welcome email with information after booking. Good breakfast with lovely view. Good beds, and great to have a bathroom with each room.

Good organised hostel, clean with god facilities. But it is leaning towards a large business oriented place, so not a cosy personal place to stay. And a bit of a walk up the hill from the main street, but it has an amazing view. Stayed in a dorm and the double room, highly recommend the one in the seperate building.

Rooms are clean but kitchen is disgusting--clogged drains with water that looks like it has been sitting there for days. The hostel common room is comfortable with a good view and the staff (generally) seemed happy to answer (most) questions. The breakfast also is better than most hostels I've been to. But, on the expensive side--but so are the other options in town.

Good breakfast, great view and always good music playing in the common area. The staff is amazing, were very efficient in booking all the tours / transfers I needed.The downside is that it's far from the center of Calafate.

The staff was incredible helpful when we trying to plan our tours and transportation to and from Calafate. They made it all very stress-free and easy! The home-y environment made it very easy to relax and enjoy ourselves. The lockers were big enough to fit all of our belongings, and the wifi was pretty consistent.

A bit out of town but easy to find. This hostel helps you with everything about getting further into Patagonia. The staff are so friendly, the breakfast is good and there's a beautiful view from the reception area.

Really liked my stay here, even went back when passing through for another night. Bit of a walk but worth it. Staff were amazing, super friendly and really helpful. Rooms/bathrooms were clean. Marked slightly down for facilities as internet is poor, and kitchen gets really busy/full so makes it's hard to cook.

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. Clean simple rooms, with lockers for each person, bedding changing daily, excellent breakfast, kitchen facilities were great, awesome common area, and some of the best and most helpful staff I have had the pleasure of staying with. Every tour including prices, times, locations, is there for you when you arrive and the staff literally booked and took care of everything from instant I arrived. Ayelén y Mati son capos! Gracias por todo amigos.

Excellent, clean, informative hostel. The bathroom facilities within the 4 person room were new and great, almost had a hotel feel. Really informative staff to help you plan your trip.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! The staff is extremely helpful and the free breakfast was wonderful! Very friendly atmosphere! A bit hard to find at night and about a 10 min walk from downtown.

Great hostel with a staff that is super friendly and helpful. They helped me with an inexpensive shuttle to the airport. It is about a 15 minute walk from downtown, but the view from the lake makes it totally worth it.
