Good view out of the window. But you have to climb a small hill to get there from the supermarket and or busstation. Staff was realy helpfull. And it was nice warm with heating in the floor. Liked it. Good place to stay, but not the cheapest around.

Loved this hostel! One of the best views in town over El Calafate and very close to town as well. The staff were so great and friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious. The common areas were clean and very open feeling. Loved it!

Big hostel, private bathrooms in the dorms - which we could lock. Wifi everywhere. The commom are was comfy, with a good view over the lake. The staff was very nice and helpful. the only thing to improve in the cleanliness of the kitchen: the breakfast also could be better.

The straff was unbelievable friendly and helpful!!!! The view was awesome! Nice breakfast with variety! Cozy atmosphere!! Close to the city centre and the bus stop is around 10-15 min walk I can highly recommend it! The negative point is that basically everyone can get into the rooms, but there are lockers in the rooms

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Clean. The only negative was that they checked a noisy couple into my dorm room at 11 PM after I had gone to bed.

The staff here are super friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is good and the rooms are clean with good ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen is the only downside, it is small and becomes dirty very quickly, if they improved the kitchen I would say it would be close to being a perfect hostel!

Great hostel. The staff was very helpful in providing information about activities in El Calafate and about how to get to our next destination. Fun environment and amazing view of the lake and mountains from the backyard.

The staff at America Del Sur are awesome: friendly, helpful and hilarious. The breakfast is decent and the views of the lake in the common areas are beautiful! Wifi is plentiful and strong. The location is a short 5 min walk from the main street but there's not a lot there anyway. One downside was that the shower was tiny.

Excellent hostel, very friendly and helpful staff. Helped us find and book a horse riding day trip which was fantastic. Bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms which is great and a good spread for breakfast. Considering how cold it is outside, the hostel is kept nice and warm. We would definitely recommend it and go back.

Very friendly and helpful staff! I had an excellent stay. The only thing that could be improved would be to provide more pots in the kitchen as there weren't enough when more than 2 people wanted to cook. But other than that the hostel is awesome. I liked it a lot and would definitely recomend it! Thanks a lot!
