Hostel is well located and had a reasonable rating when booking. However, I do not recommend this hostel because I felt that guests were an inconvenience for the managers and: - It is overcrowded - kitchen only open from 8:30am to 10pm - no exceptions! - breakfast is only from 8:30 to 10am; leaving earlier? Bad luck. - need to leave your bag or use the the kitchen after checking out - bad luck - there are so many rules and they are written in a passive aggressive manner all over the place
Had a great stay here! All the staff are really lovely and very helpful, and there is a good atmosphere - obviously not a massive party hostel but lots of nice people. The dorms are good, bathrooms great (never had a wait for a shower) and the kitchen good but can get very crowded! Overall a fab place and highly recommend.
The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful! very friendly people here.

way too many rules. It was like living in the strictest boarding school ever. Most of them are common sense but to have rules stuck up to the walls is crazy! The walls are filled with rules rules rules!! The kitchen was well organised and fried ku to use. Bathroom was good.
There are too many rules! Take shoes off, no frying food on hobs!? The hostel and staff are nice enough but whoever is writing The rule book needs to chill.
The kitchen is microscopic given the number of residents AND closed from 22PM to 8:30 ! Breakfast can not be served before 8:30 which is not at all adapted to excursions etc. Last but not least, we found the staff pretty brutal + multiple rules on each and every wall in the hostel.
The hostel was very clean but that was because the staff (family were obsessed with cleaning it. I felt the emphasis was on getting the customers out of the way in the morning as soon as possible so that they could clean. To me it had that "get out and don't come back till evening, " feel to it . All the notices and announcements had a "no exceptions" tag on them which made you feel like they would be very inflexible about most things. But they were okay, more business like than friendly for me.
Good hostel, they're are a lot of rules, however, the staff are helpful, and the place is very clean
The hostel is in a great location, has awesome facilities (rooms, bathroom, living, patio) and it gets extra points for cleanliness for sure. The staff wasn't the friendlist one during NYE, they were almost in a grumpy mood. Afterwards we were able to see the nice side everyone is praising in the comments here. All in all it was a really nice stay there, despite the bumpy road to have access to the kitchen for new year's eve. A really enjoyable place.
I found this hostel one of the worst I have stayed in in South America. The atmosphere was not great and I thought the staff were the least friendly (except for the manager?) I have come across. Wifi signal is not very possible to use anywhere but a living room. They are strict about taking shoes off before entering the hostel every time, a first for me.. Breakfast is terrible. No fruit, no coffee. No sockets in rooms, so you have to leave your phone in hallway overnight.

Nice and helpful staff. Decent atmosphere and amenities. Negatives - no plug point in room. Opening/closing times for kitchen and common area not convenient. Top bunk difficult to get on/off without disturbing bottom bunk.
The last time I stayed at a place with so many rules I was 17 years old and living with my parents! Most hostels have inspirational quotes posted all over the walls, but this place...rules. Nothing but rules. You can't use the kitchen at all from 10 PM-8:30 AM, which is RIDICULOUS since you can't even access your own food or brew some tea at your own convenience. Also, the Wi-Fi only works in the living room, so you can't even browse the Internet in peace. The living room can get loud.
It is more a moneymaking facility than a place to make the traveller welcome. Even as I stayed for 4 nights I was forced to go to the bankautomat at 22:00 in he night, because they wanted the Money immediatly after the second night. They were not helpful at all. Everywhere are signs with rules. During new years eve they closed the kitchen - it was even not possible to get the own Food out of the fridge. The door from the dorm could not be closed. I never would got again in this hostel.
Everything was very good. Excellent ambience, good people and staff. The only incovinient part is that the kitchen is close from 22:00 to 8:30, no plugs in the room and the internet is not really good neither. But in general i recommend it!!
I only stayed for one night and it was nice enough. I probably would have liked it more had I not stayed at another hostel in Ushuaia that I liked better. The rooms were a bit small and there wasn't enough room for all of the bags. There were also no outlets in the room, which meant you had to charge things in the common area or the hall, which was annoying. The kitchen was quite small and the eating area as well, but the common area was nice. The staff were helpful and generally friendly.
Staff was rude and they recommended all the worst services in Ushuaia. No nice space to interact with other travellers.
Great hostel! Great atmosphere and a great place to meet people. Hot showers and clean facilities.. One of the best breakfasts I've had as well. The Internet isn't great but I still Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ushuaia. Thanks guys!
Well reviewed hostel that draws a crowd. Good atmosphere but small kitchen made cooking difficult. Nice bed for the first 2 nights but moved and got a bed of springs. Decent breakfast but not until 8:30 which is late if you want an early start. Leave your shoes at the door!
