This was my favourite hostel in South America so far, I have been travelling for 2 months. Good breaky, very warm in the hostel and good wifi compared to others in South America. Staff was good, expect for one guy who had dreadlocks coming out of the back of his head. He ripped us off, don't deal with that guy. But everyone els who worked there was great, especially the one who plays the ukulele!
We really liked the hostel and would recommend it! It's located a short walk away from town, but thats no problem. The breakfast is very good and the bathrooms and dorms seem to be very new. The only thing that we didnt like so much, was the smell of food in the common area because the kitchen is very small. Maybe you should think about better ventilation.
It was great!

Loved the cheerful smiles of guys working at the reception desk. They were very helpful with first day orientation and tips, and the hostel itself was awesome. Good atmosphere. Quiet at night time. Great music list played, btw. Great view from the room, and nice facilities in the room and in common areas. Thank you for making our stay so wonderful.
Amazing hostel!! Really clean and breakfast was good, but the best thing about the hostel was definitely the staff! They were so knowledgeable and helpful! The underfloor heating is definitely a bonus too!
Very nice place to stay, very close to the centre, good staff and very clean place.
The heated floors are amazing. Had a bus at 3am and the hostel staff let me just chill in the common area until then, even though I had checked out that morning. Good breakfast. Can also book bus tickets here. Overall really great, would definitely recommend
Friendly staff..great atmosphere..best hostel inour one month long south america trip
Super cool and helpful staff! definitely a really great place to stay, with nice view, good rooms and cool breakfast!
The staff were some of the most helpful I have found. Always ready with information or to book tours.
would recommend to you. it is a nice hostel with good hot water, WIFI is ok, clean and you can meet friends there, besides important even there are quite good meeting area, you can still have a nice sleep as it is quiet which is important. staff is quick on answering emails, but for updated and details info, it is better you also check with the final operator to ensure everything is correct.
We had a beautiful time in America del Sur - El Calafate. I would recommend every travel to come and enjoy the peaceful, friendly and international atmosphere in this hostel. Not to forget the astonishing view from the Hostels meeting room. Staff was not only very helpful and helped as book trips and gave recommendations but are also up for some chats and beers ;)
Good hostel in calafate. Fun but the staff wasn't as knowledgeable as they could have been (ie with bus times and local activities). They were super friendly though!!! Also the kitchen was lacking basic stuff (cups, pots, can opener). Guessing it got jacked by passed travelers. Anywho definitely worth the stay!
The best hostel I have been in! Go there and feel like home, when you are on the way! The staff is super nice and friendly, they try to teach you spanish, if you like to learn something and the whole atmosphere is really great!
I had a really great time at America del Sur! The place is lovely! Very helpful and nice staff, made the visit even better. The location is excellent, with a wonderful view over a lake. Can't get any better than this really, it's even cousy!

Awesome hostel. Really helpful staff. one of the best
Great Hostel in El Calafate, very short walk to main business district.
This is a fantastic hostel. Warm and good atmosphere etc. the only negative is, the male staff are really only concerned about the female guests... It does get a little annoying.. Great hostel though.
Awesome hostel! Great staff, nice rooms, really warm and cosy. Better breakfast than you get at most places. Really nice view and just a tiny walk from the main street. Stay here!!
Absolutely fantastic hostel, extremely good value for money. Lovely helpful and friendly staff. Very nice breakfast, wonderful atmosphere. The view from the dining area of Lago Argentino is absolutely stunning, you could sit here all day. The rooms are extremely spacious and clean and very well layer out. Underfloor heating and shoes off rule gives a nice feel. Only negative is the kitchen, the space and cleanliness doesn't reflect the rest of the hostel, really minor issue though. 100%
