Fantastic hostel, with a particularly good common area, with a nice view of Lago Argentina. Staff were also really helpful with booking tours and directions etc. It's a little bit out of the main town but is only a 10 min walk, and there is a great parilla restaurant a little further up the street. Only criticism of the hostel was the top bunk I had didn't have a ladder to it...access was difficult after multiple Quilmes! :)

The extra travel recommendations and booking services make it easy to do the activities without leaving the hostel. Everyone was very friendly too.

Nice location, with a nice view of the Lago Argentino, central heating, comfy beds, ok breakfast. Just had a small issue with the staff: nobody told me I was supposed to move to another dorm for the second night, so when I got there (very tired after the ice trekking), there was another person in my bed, a few of my belongings were missing, and we had to spend quite a while to find them. Other than that, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hostel, and I totally recommend it!

Love this hostel, such a friendly environment. Nice view of the town and Lago Argentino. I really like the fact that the breakfast is available from around 5:30ish in the morning, so in case anyone's tour leave early morning they dont have to skip the breakfast :). The staff is very fun and friendly. Thanks a bunch for doing all my bookings and also thanks a lot for such an enjoyable stay!!

Lovely modern hostel on top the hill with view over the town, about 10 minute walk to the town/amenities. Great for family and older travellers, really chilled out, great common areas. Kitchen is small but has 2 sinks and 2 hobs so never a problem getting in. Hostel arranges asados and pizza nights most nights. We stayed over Christmas

One of the best staffs i've ever encountered at a hostel. They helped make alternative arrangements when plans fell through and seemed to remember everybody's name. The hostel itself is clean, hot water in showers, and close to a great steak restaurant.

This hostel has a really nice common room with a great view on the lake. The breakfast is really nice and includes hot chocolat, cereals, juice, cake, toasts etc... The staff was helpfull but a bit arrogant. The dorms we're ok but a bit small for 4 peaople with large backpacks.

Overall, very nice hostel. The staff was very fun and helpful for booking of the trips. The main area was spacious, cozy and had an amazing view. The breakfasts were very nice with lots of different things to eat. Downside : The kitchen was small, a little dirty and not that well equipped. The 4 bed mixed dorm was a little small, and the upper bed was hard to reach!

Had a great time in el calefate, and the staff were very helpful with planning activities for our stay. The hostel had a great view over the lake and plenty of room in the common area to relax. Would love to visit again one day!

It's a bit out-of-the-way (and a decent trek uphill from the town center), but once you make it there it's fantastic. Cool common-area layout and very lively.

The Hostel is quite big, so maybe not the best deal when you're looking for a familiar place. But everxthing else was perfect. Clean, good facilities, superfriendly stuff which helps you for every question you can have. Enjoy the eyes of Andreea while she's exxplaining something to you ;)... Alex

Cannot fault the location, cleanliness, and friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was really good with lots of food (mostly bread based). Beautiful view across to the mountains. Only complaints were it was too hot in the bedrooms and wifi only worked in communal areas.
