Very nice hostel with an amazing atmosphere and very friendly staff!


A cozy alpine style hostel located near some of the greatest hiking trails in the area. Friendly staff, laundry service, lockers, good kitchen equipment, everything you'd expect from a good hostel. Good breakfast with pancakes included.


If you rather not stay in the busy city center, this Is a great choice. Easy to get to and great atmosphere


Overall we liked Fortaleza and the staff were really nice and helpful. It has everything you need in a hostel, the breakfasts are very good but it is quite out of the way, there is only one male and one female bathroom for the whole hostel and the small number of guests can mean the atmosphere is a bit lacking at non-busy times. A good hostel, but we've stayed at better.


Warm, cosy and friendly, Mariel and Marion made us feel right at home. She even invited us to enjoy a BBQ with all her friends on our first night! Breakfast was great, the place smelt and looked spotlessly clean and the dorms are spacious with comfortable beds. Only thing to bear in mind if you don't have a car - supermarket is 20 mins walk and the buses can be infrequent/unreliable! That said, location is great for Cerro Campanario (a must do) and for exploring the National Park!


I was made to feel really at home.Everybody there was great .The facilities were exellent and the breakfast tremendous


This was an amazing Hostel! Mariell made us pancakes in the morning which was fabulous. Do not be put off by the fact that it is not in the centre of Bariloche as everything you want to do is outside the city anyway :D Easy access to many attractions you want to see, Circuito Chico and Cerro Campanario to name a few! The staff there were all wonderful and it is super secure. You need a fob to get in and rooms are well maintained. They have boys and girls bathrooms too! All in all wonderful!


This place was more than likely my favorite hostel on the trip I had in South America. And in a log cabin! That made it even better. The atmosphere was so chill and Mariel and Sebastian were extremely knowledgeable/helpful the whole time we were staying at Fortaleza. Thanks so much!


I loved this hostel. Same as previous reviews, it´s not located downtown but you need a bus anyway, even if you want to go from the terminal to downtown. It was a beautiful hostel, in a very quiet neighbourhood with a friendly staff. Huge kitchen with all the supplies, nice dorm and clean bathroom. Just 10 minutes by bus from all the main attractions, and approx 20 minutes from downtown
