As reviewed, this is a strict hostel - irritatingly so. Still it's clean with a good communal area, brekkie is fine. Location vgood


Avoid this hostel like the plague ! Staff very rude and obnoxious ! Too many rules !!!


A really good hostel, good location and good facilities. Staff very helpful with arranging trips etc. Only complaint is the militant rules, which i appreciate are for the benefit of all guests, but the posters/notices were a wee bit aggressive...!


So many rules! Staff were quite rude and it felt very hostile! It was actually ridiculous how strict this hostel is and many posters are pinned up on walls stating the rules of the hostel. Wouldn't recommend!


This is a nice hostel, very well located and safe. Rooms are quite small for the number of people in each dorm, nevertheless (and possibly due to all the rules in the hostel) the space is clean and organized. Breakfast is ok but only served after 8.30am which does not fit with the schedule of most outdoor activities. Wifi connection only in the living room.


Not happy at all with my experience. Rude, aggressive staff - thinking they are running a preschool and not a hostel!


Stop whinging about taking your shoes off at the door, this hostel is super clean because of it! Great place, great staff, great facilities and they were excellent at helping you with anything about ushuaia or the surrounds.


Hostel was clean and in a good location, and the breakfast was pretty good. Major downside was how rude and aggressive the staff was. It's possible to have a clean, organized hostel without hostility. We felt like we were on the defensive for the entire stay - even the signs asking us to follow the rules were aggressive! Not a great atmosphere at all - there are better, cheaper hostels in Ushuaia.


This is a nice quiet hostel with a great family atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time here.


Good hostel with very friendly staff, but it ´s a pity there is no wifi in the rooms!


Over rated,over priced hostel.To many unnecessary rules,like taking shoes off at entrance door,kitchen closed after 10pm,it's so annoying!There was stupid note that all people are equal and don't think that you are better than others,but feels like staff want to king it over others.No Wifi in dormitories...


Too many rules!


The best hostel I stayed in Argentina, very clean, the staff were very friendly, helpful and always worried about the organization of the hostel and cleaning. Very nice, easy environment to make friends there.


This hostel definitely has a nice atmosphere. My only complaint is that it's a bit annoying that the wifi is only really accessible from the lounge area. Overall staff were helpful, but a little bit rude-- they were just unnecessarily strict about some things for no apparent reason.

Sentimos no complacerte. Creemos que con una sola noche llegando a las 23.00 de la noche y partiendo a las 10 puedas disfrutar plenamente de las cualidades del hostel. el wifi es bueno, y no solamente en living room.


The best hostel in Ushuaia. No doubts...

The hostel is excellent! The kitchen is very well equipped and the breakfast is very good with bread, jam, butter, dulce de leche, juice, coffee and chocolate. The staff is extremely helpful, just ask them if you have any doubt or if you'd like any tip.


Very nice choice. I really recommend.


I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, the staff were welcoming and helpful especially with regards organising trips etc - I highly recommend going to Laguna Esmeralda. It is in a good location not far from the main street. The kitchen is a little small which can be problematic if everyone is trying to cook at once but it was easy enough to work around. I didn't have any issues when it came to charging my mobile etc as there are plenty of sockets dotted around. Showers were nice & hot too.


It's a really nice hostel! The staff (Carla and Ana) are really friendly and helpful. The hostel its near from everything. The wifi only works at the living room.the atmosphere it's amazing. They have a breakfast, I'd say that's a "ok" breakfast, and they have a kitchen where you can cook your own food. I recommend this hostel for everyone! :)


- Too many posted "common sense" rules posted EVERYWHERE! - Kitchen/Fridge far too small - Mgt locks guests out of the kitchen between 2230 - 0830. Your food cannot be accessed at all. IMPOSSIBLE to access your food if you have midnite munchies or have an early morning hike planned. They hold ur food hostage. They don't allow food in dorms either. WTF? - Mgt runs the place like militants when it comes to shoes worn inside - Other guests party until 1-2am in outside/Internet room. Too noisy...
