Staff were not very helpful, kept telling us different things that would completely contradict what other staff said. Breakfast was decent.

Good hostel, but the dorms feel like you're sleeping in a bathroom. Other than that it's a great stay with good breakfasts and plenty of things organised each day.

Best Hostel in the Argentinean Patagonia! The floor is heated, so it's ok to walk on socks or even bare footed in the hostel or the room. The Receptionists were wonderful, especially Valeria and Nadja, giving very clear information about all the tours and the city! The bathroom inside each room is something else, and the breakfast with Dulce de Leche is amazing! Must Stay in this Hostel!!

I was very happy with my stay here. The staff was very helpful with organising the ice trek tour and my follow on travel. It is not in the centre of town but a very short walk and a beautiful view of the lake. The only problem is the kitchen can be quite crowded at dinner time and there could be a lot more saucepans. Other than that I would recommend it!

This was a great hostel. Cool vibe and awesome communal areas. The breakfast was delicious and extensive! The best I've had in Argentina. Only downsides were music from common areas carried into our room starting early in the morning and continuing until late at night (since our room was near the common area). I would recommend asking for a room further away from the common area. Also, pretty sure there were bedbugs...we left with 100+ bites.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water, and the staff are awesome and help you with everything. If you're coming to El Calafate you must stay here.

Overall was a good hostel, although the kitchen is very small and is a mess.. The fridge also wasn't cleaned while I was there, Most of the staff are very good and helpful except for German who has an attitude problem.. There's great views from the hostel and is in a good location👍

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.

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.
