The Staff were amazing and so helpful. Rooms were nice and clean, top bunks are hard to climb due to the steps being at the end but if thats the worse thing in the world it really isnt that bad. Loved my stay here!
Top hostel in a good location. Great friendly staff that make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive. Easy to meet people and the breakfast is good too!
Felt like home. Not sure why I've read about loud music, we're old and didn't find the music loud at all. Perfect selection and a perfect volume. Could try to do something about those kit hen flies though??
What else can I say? Everything was fantastic in this hostel, right from the more than friendly and welcoming staff to the most lovely of locations. Thank you, America del Sur Hostel! Special thanks to Natalia & Matias. Sydney, Australia
The one thing to point out here is the great staff. They are very friendly and helpful. You can book all the bus tickets and tours you like and don't need to run around El Calafate. We went to El Chaltén and returned to El Calafate to take the bus to Ushuaia. Because of that we had to wait from 9pm to 3am the next morning. The hostel was so nice to let us stay in the common area although we had checked out 5 days ago.
Great lay out, open plan chillout area with view of mountains and lake- stunning. The rooms are fine and clean and mostly ensuite i think. Only issue is that its away from the main throng, but still only a 10-15 min walk so no biggie. Definitely recommended.
It was a neat set up and friendly staff. Incredible view from the hotel. However there was constantly loud music playing so you could never just relax on your own and there was no Internet in the rooms. There was also a fly problem-- you can't sit anywhere without having to constantly shoo away the flies. The kitchen was also very gross, the sink would get clogged easily, so dirty dishes would be piled up high in the morning which didn't help the problem with the flies.
Thanks girls (and guys) for your wonderful help! You are the best! We really had a nice time! Next time we'll try to be a little bit more prepared for our excursions ;-) Greetz from the boys with the 'dog food' candy :-))
Staff are all very helpful and friendly. The excursions proposed are good and we have a really good time there. Our room was clean and they tidy our bed and change our towels everyday, we haven't had it in any other hostels. Well done guys, keep it up !
Beautiful view (I'm not sure it can get better)! It's a little on the louder side with the music which might be good for the right crowd. They were fabulous in providing information about the area and booking tours. Go through them - it's cheaper than booking on your own. They also let you keep an account and pay for most things at the end. The staff were phenomenal - always friendly, social and in a great mood! We would recommend this place and would stay again.
Had an excellent time here. The staff were amazing, very helpful, organized several tours for us which were all great, they went above and beyond (e.g. did an extra-early breakfast when we had a 5am start) and they all seemed to know who we were - impressive in such a big hostel! Easy 5-10 minute walk from town centre. Would definitely stay here again.
I thoroughly enjoyed both my stays at this hostel. The staff are friendly, helpful, and very good at helping you make the most out of El Calafate. The rooms are nice, with lockers for each bed. The baths and showers are in separate rooms, with sinks between, in a suite-style dorm room. I stayed in only the 4 person rooms, but they, and the common areas, were always clean. The breakfast is generous a worthy consideration if you like to eat. Wi-fi in common areas ONLY. Engaging guests of all ages
A nice chalet feel to this hostel, a little 10 walk for, the town and up a hill but gives some superb sunset views. Staff were very friendly, above any we have came across in South America, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms were very clean, great ensuite bathrooms. Common area is large, to floors with plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen is a bit small and lacks cutlery. Brilliant breakfast.
The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful in helping me plan activities.
Great hostel. Bathroom attached to the room which is a nice.
The Hostel is actually built like a Hotel but has a great common area.
Really nice and helpful staff, rooms with lockers and reading light and private bathroom. Great view!!
This is a great hostel. The staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to help you with booking trips and onward travel. The standard of English is very good too. The only tiny issue i had was the speed of the hostel computers but everything else was near perfect. Thanks for a great stay guys!
