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!


Dorms are very very small. Only wifi in livingroom which stinks. Kitchen is locked from 10 pm till 8.30 pm so you won't be able to get to your food in the fridge if you leave early.


Hostel in the centre of ushuaia. Staff and cleanliness ok, average atmosphere. The space in the dorm is incredibly small, no space for our backpacks at all !


By far the best hospitality I have received at a hostel. Excellent advice and attention paid to guests. I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others. I do think it is time for them to switch out their pillows, though.


Some dorms were too small for the amount of people and the kitchen was the same. Some nights you couldn't get in the kitchen to make dinner. Some staff were very helpful and the place is very clean. Very spacious common room but it is separate to the rest of the house.


Great hostel to meet people. Located just off the main street and close to a supermarket. There are lots of rules - breakfast only from 8.30 to 10am, kitchen closed at 10pm, people have to move to the living room after 10. But this makes the hostel very social and you meet lots of people. The staff probably aren't the most accommodating.


We spent two nights here feeling like we were an inconvenience to the staff and all their friends and family who come and take over the dining area in the evenings. There are rules for everything... and I mean everything. The only place to relax is the snug room where you can hide with the other guests and keep out of the way. The kitchen is very small so plan your dinner for quiet times in the day. Don't use it when the staff want to use it. The location is good and the shower rooms are clean.


Nice staff, ver little kitchen almost no space to eat- to many rules!!!


So many rules creates an uncomfortable vibe. Ok hostel but mainly just full of people who wanted to stay at Antartica hostel but it was booked out. Recommend staying there instead. Staff were a bit aggressive when trying to organise transportation to Lago Esmeralda. On the plus, they provided free gumboots to use.

Thank you for the review. In reference to the laguna we advised your friend several times the transfer is cheaper than taxi, 20minutes before it was due to arrive she decided to cancel it anyway and book the taxi only to change her mind again 5 minutes later, unfortunately as we are in high season there were people waiting for a seat on this bus and there was no longer space available, this is out of our control. Our hostel is rated highest on hostelworld as well as being the most economical.


I don't know why everybody is so positive about this hostel. It is very expensive, cramped dorms, there is no room for bags and no electricity in the dorms. Kitchen use closes way too early (21:30hrs) and is unbelievable busy. Breakfast doesn't start until 8:30 en lasts only 1,5 hrs. The showers are powerfull, but when someone flushes the toilet you burn alive, they are also not very private. The location is good and the staff is normally nice, but that is it.


Maybe a big 'silence sign after 11pm' . So, people will not talk outside the room hallway.


Staff were great, very helpful in recommending things to do, sorting out laundry and providing currency exchange. One girl there in particular (whose name escapes me) was always interested in what I was doing and very helpful. Would recommend to others.


The staff was very helpful. The hostel is very popular and busy. A good place to meet people.

This is a good hostel, well located, decent breakfast. Kitchen is too small and gets very crowded at lunch and dinner, no outlets in the rooms is annoying but there are plenty around the hostel. Overall a good place would recommend it to others


Cute hostel, close to the pier. Carla is super sweet and helpful.


Really great hostel! The staff are incredibly helpful with anything you need. Great security, good vibes, hot showers, really fast wifi, and very clean facilities. The rooms are heated and you never have to worry about being cold. The only thing that could be improved is that the breakfast starts pretty late (around 8:15 or 8:30), and sometimes people have flights or tours that begin pretty early and aren't able to eat breakfast beforehand. Other than that, everything was awesome!


Warm welcoming spot, two blocks up from the main road, very friendly and helpful staff. Basic amenities of a hostel, nothing fancy. Shared kitchen, shared hangout room with slow internet. Would recommend m.
