Cool hostel within walking distance to town. Helpful staff, friendly visitors and easy to book tours through. Not the cleanest as my shower was pretty grimey. Also, during the high season, they are very busy which means the staff is stretched a little thin.. Be sure to book tours & bus tickets in advance!


Great hostel and staff. The main lounge has a great view overlooking the lake and the rooms were very clean. They were able to also book us the Moreno Glacier tour. Would stay here again and highly recommend!


Dear hostel staff, check email at least once a day, please. Thank you.


I had stayed at the America del Sur in Buenos Aires earlier this year, so when I saw there was another one in El Calafate I had to book it! I was not disappointed. Once again, America del Sur proved to be a great place. The staff is always helpful and can book all sorts of activities for you. The atmosphere of the place is very inviting and people end up coming from many of the other hostels in town just to hang out at this one. Great place to meet other travelers. Security, laundry, etc. great.




Staff especially Nathalie very helpful...

Great stay and very helpful staff. Cool little lounge room with a good view. A little out of town, about a 5 min walk from the high street. Staff were great giving an awesome overview of stuff to do! Highly recommend the kayak experience in the icebergs!


Very good hostel. Very clean and the staff was really helpful.


Overall, an excellent hostel to stay in El Calafate. Clean and comfortable. Staff are very knowledgeable about tourist information regarding the surrounding areas and are ever so willing to help. WIFI is only accessible in the social areas (which may be a good thing). Good breakfast options. A tad pricey but I think that applies to everywhere in Patagonia.


cool place, cool staff, great place to go...


The rooms are small, reasonably clean but very, very basic. The bed was very uncomfortable. The noise from other guests can keep you up till late in the night. Given the location (far from everything in town) and the price we paid, I would not recommend this hostel.
