Great hostel, with nice rooms and helpful staff. The owners have a lot of rules, which are all fair and ensure the hostel is extremely clean, but it does take away from the atmosphere a bit. I would recommend this hostel though, and I would stay there again. Great location!
Too many unnecessary rules, and threatening that you could be suspended from the hostel. They could have their rules in a friendly way. Sometimes rude answers from one guy of the staff. Comfortable dinning room, good wifi and complete kitchen kitchen closes at 23:00 and you even can't take a drink that you have stored in the fridge. Somehow our marked beer disappeared last night.
Very comfortable, clean hostel with lots of different people. Great atmosphere!
Ana is the best receptionist in Ushuaia, she is helpful, she's got attitude and a sense of humour.
I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's one of the only hostels in town located in the downtown area and it is very easy to get to all the restaurants and bars. They have a nice but crowded kitchen, eating area, and living room area. There are a lot of rules posted all over the walls which some people seemed to be annoyed by, but for me it was fine. The staff were nice but their helpfulness varied -- they were very helpful to me but if you didn't speak Spanish they were a bit less helpful.
A decent hostel, although there are a lot of signs all around the hostel telling you to clean up etc. which gives a bit of a strict atmosphere and makes it less relaxed. The staff are friendly but don't really like to speak English (although they can). The breakfast is very good (fresh bread with various jams, cereal with milk and teas/coffees etc.). The kitchen really is very small and is impossible for more than two people to cook in there which is not ideal as its quite a big hostel!
A few chairs and perhaps a couch to sit on and relax in after a long day. Quaint tree trunks are OK but hard to sit on for a long while. Otherwise all was just great, especially the staff: Alejandro, Ana and mostly Kren.
awful and rude staff, very poor cleanliness, very small rooms (impossible to be 4 people at the same time on a 4-people dorm), definitely not the best pace to be
Really good hostel with everything you could want. Quite a few rules to follow but none are unreasonable. Good living room and internet. Would stay again.
I felt like in a bording school, so many rules. Just Anna speaks a little bit English, the rest of the staff knows only Spanish.
Really nice place, good vibes, staff welcoming, and nice travelers. Also staff really helpfull
Home away from home! At the end of the world, in a beautiful surroundings, is this hostel that offers good beds, free internet, big kitchen to prepare your meals, TV to catch up with the news, and the possibilities to book tours to hike or go see pinguins and seals.
The staff was very helpful and easy to talk to. While I was out trekking for a few nights, they let me keep an extra bag at their facility until I returned.

Cruz del Sur Hostel has nice staff and the breakfast is good. I stayded at the Cruz del Sur Hostel for 3 days. If I return to Ushuaia I would stay there probably again. It's nice there but all the strict rules signs everywhere disturb a bit the atmosphere. If they change this strict rules it would be the perfect place to feel comfortable. Anyway I had a good time there and met nice people and if somebody asked me for accommodation in Ushuaia I would than mention this hostel to other travellers!!
It's a dorm in every sense of the word. Rooms crammed with bunks, no place to put your bag. Girls bathroom on one floor, guys on the other. The kirchen is way too small for how manu people are staying there. You can sleep there, but that's about it.
Very nice hostel with a great atmosphere, shame the girl running the place is a bit grumpy...
10am check out and can not use everything, even wifi???
Great staff, great tour recommendations, great mix of people. In hight season it gets a little packed though.
Very nice location and facilities, smack in the center of Ushuaia. Nice common areas, very good bathrooms and showers. Staff had some very nice people but also some quite rude. Small but well equiped kitchen, breakfast your typical Argentinian breakfast.
The hostel is nice, but the rooms and the kitchen are very small. You don't have much space. The kitchen is really clean. Nice chill-out-living room.
