Staff is friendly and heplfull. Facilieties are clean. Breakfest good. Hostel is on the hill :), so it takes about 10-15 minutes from city center to the hostel. I liked there, would come back.

Good clean hostel. Great view of the lake but a little ways to walk to the city center, like most other hostels in El Calafate. Friendly staff who will help you know the city and set up tours and airport trips.

The hostel is in a nice location with a beautiful on the scenery around. However we were supposed to get a 10% discount as we stayed in the same hostel in Buenos aires but at the end the staff refused to do the discount because we made the booking on hostelworld :( Staff was except that pretty helpful as theybooked for us different bus tickets to save us time.

This is a lovely hostel only a 10min walk from town with the most amazing staff! Breakfast consists of more than just bread and jam which is a great change. The only downside is there is not many plugs in the room and the showers are small. Thanks again to the staff for making my stay so amazing!

The best of this hostel was definitely the staff. They are unbelievably nice and helpful and made our stay in way better. The rooms are really good, confy beds and 2 lobbies (downstairs and upstairs) where people can gather and meet other fellow travelers. Breakfast was really nice as well. It's only a short 10 minute walk from the main street in El Calafate but its worth it so you can meet their staff and have a laugh with them. They'll go an extra mile to help you with whatever you might need.

I had a great time in there. The staff was awesome, helped me in EVERYTHING, allways with a smile in their face. Breakfast starts early, which was good for the morning excursions. If I'll be back to Calafate, I wish they have a room for me again :)

The staff are really friendly and full of enthusiasm - very welcoming. It is a little far from the centre of town, but you should be used to walking now, right? Right?

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel is a little out of town but as a result you get some amazing views. Hostel was very clean and breakfast was great. Would recommend.

I stayed at the Buenos Aires location and El Calafate location. Really impressed with both hostels. One improvement needed: the Calafate hostel should sweep the floors more often if it wants guests to take their shoes off.
