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.


really relaxed hostel and helpful staff who'll sort everything out for you during your stay. booked one night here and ended up returning between buses from el chalten to puerto natales.


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.


Great stay here. Loved the variety at breakfast!


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.


My favorite hostel I've stayed at in Argentina! Beautiful view, very clean.


Great hostel. Super friendly and helpful staff. Met a lot of nice people there. Would definitely come back and recommend!


The staff were amazing! So helpful and had really great suggestions


Pros: - Breakfast ok (cacao, coffee, tea, bread, marmelade, butter, cakes, cereals, milk, juice) - Cleanliness - Cool get-together area Bads/Needs improvement: - Messy, dirty kitchen - 2 computers for internet, not working! In real need for an update - Too loud music in the common areas, u can barely understand people


Hostel had a lovely homely feel to it with great views over the hills and lakeside, location great too just a 10 minute walk downhill to the centre


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.


America del sur is a nice hostel. The view is great and the staff is very helpfull. We had a good time here. Only thing is that sometimes the music in the common area was a bit loud.


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.
