Good value for very cheap price. Hostel is just okay. Outside space and bbq area are good if weather faciitates. Showers nice and hot.


Lovely hostel with great location and really helpful staff. Also very clean. Only downside is the tiny kitchen. A tip for other travelers: take the bikes for a test run before hiring, some are a little stiff.


It s a good place to stay in cafayate


My favourite place so far! Not only is the hostel very nice and clean but Emma and all the other people working there are extremly friendly and it is definetly worth to share a mate with her! The beautiful patio with a fireplace is perfect for an asado with other backpackers! The tour offered by the hostel to the quebrada de las conchas was great as well, really nothing to complain about! I'll defenitly be back!

Chilled place. Only real downside was that during the day it was difficult to find somebody who worked there to answer any questions.


A nice hostel; a little bit noisy (we had a bedroom just next to the common room) but the staff is really nice and take the time to help you and explain all the things to do in Cafayate. The garden is amazing, with hammocks and woody tables under the trees and original paintings on the walls. The rooms are large, with natural and colored walls and good beds.


When we arrived nobody of the staff was there. We waited for 3 hours and picked our room ourselves, went something to eat and had to wait another hour for a check-in. The following days were the same. The discription said that breakfast would be included. It was not! Missinformation... The beds are selfmade and the matraces are just a peace of foam. And almost broken. We slept in a room without window. It's warm so this is no problem. But the mosquitos were killing us. Internet didn't work.
