The location is awesome and the wi-fi is absolutely amazing. Super fast and reliable. The kids running around screaming were quite annoying. Also there is no good place to sit and work. They have these pillow things in the living room if you're just checking Facebook, but if you want to get any proper work done there's no where to sit.
PROS: Good location and the staff can hook you up with day trips. CONS: Not a lot of atmosphere. I dont care for a lot of the rules (including dozens of patronising signs). Being threatened to be thrown out of the hostel, if you use the bathroom sink for washing clothes seems excessive! 99 % of travellers are reasonable people, so stop treating us of like we're 12 years old. The staff were efficient but one of them seemed dismissive and looked angry all the time- basically shouting a people.
Fantastic hostel. Run by a family, who are always there to help you. They sit you down with a great all you need to know information session when you have settled in. They run tours but are not pushy and will also help you arrange things to do it yourself if you don't want to do that option. The bathrooms were always clean. Kitchen a tiny bit small but not an issue when I was there. Would highly recommend.
Great hostel, clean, secure, and good location. Definitely recommended!

Nice hostels with good atmosphere and a lot of rules: kitchen only available at certain times, your not allowed to use facilities after check-out.
No power points in room which meant a mad scramble for those in the corridors, which truly brought out the worst in everyone staying there. Considering the number of rules, was surprised at the lack requiring respect for your fellow traveler, when debating their use in the corridors at 1am. The den area is cool. Terrible night sleep.
Great hostel, welcoming staff, cute doggy (Krem?). 'Nuff said!
Good hostel! Good location near to San Martin street. Its rooms are very small and internet service is bad. Very slow and difficult conection all the time. Excessive rules. But, it is possible stay there for some days without problems. There is a beatifull dog!
We arrived around 8am in Ushuaia and got to cruz del sur. immediately upon entry we were told to remove our shoes. No hello or welcome. Then we were told that check in was not till 12 and we needed to leave till then. Everywhere you look there is abrasive rules posted on the walls threatening to kick you out if you don't abide. Kitchen was tiny and lacking pans. Staff was rude and constantly yelling at guests. Not a very good vibe here at all. Don't waste your money here.
This hostel is full of Israelis and therefore quite loud. The hostel staff tries to control the loud guests, but its still very difficult to get a good nights sleep. Good wifi, fully equipped kitchen, nice art and decor.
Excellent hostel, very nice staff who help all that is needed. Highly recommended!!
Wifi mostly in dedicated area and not so much in room.
Everything is just fine about Cruz del Sur as a building - it's warm, clean and there is always hot water. However, what REALLY made it amazing are the staff. They are so helpful and friendly that staying at Cruz del Sur becomes almost like staying with friends :) All of the members of staff were very nice but we've dealt with Ana and Carla mostly and we'll simply miss them :) Oh, and go for the Lago Esmeralda trip they do as it comes with AMAZING asado afterwards!
The hostel offers everything you are looking for as a traveler: nice communal areas which makes it really easy to meet people, a good kitchen (however it is closed and locked from 11 pm to 8:30 am, what can be a problem if you have a tour earlier or your food is in the refrigerator and you are hungry!), friendly atmosphere, nice and helpful staff, hostel is very clean. The rooms are a little small for 6 people and their luggages. Anyway, I would recommend it for sure!
It is a good hostel BUT. The kitchen is closed from 11pm to 830am!! If you're an early riser and are hungry or have some food in the fridge it's too bad, you just will have to wait cause the kitchen is LOCKED. I didn't like that. Also, there is no plugs in the rooms so you have to leave your device in the common areas. Not handy when your phone is your only alarm. The staff is really nice but I felt like they were supporting some tour companies more than others. Also, no wifi in the rooms.
Great central location. Rooms were a little small though.
Staff is really nice and Ana will give you loads of info on what to do in Ushuaia. The hostel is very clean and well located. A good choice for your stay, I really enjoyed mine :) The only downsides are the wi-fi only available in the "salon" (so people only go there to check their phones and not really to exchange with others...) and the absence of plugs in the rooms. But definitely a very good value for money! I would recommend this hostel for sure.
