I really enjoyed Fortaleza hostel. The location is quite far from the city but that is what I like. If you want somewhere peaceful and that has a cabin-in-the-woods feel to it this is the place to stay. Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff as well!

We, as a family, found this place to be quaint. Mariel is the best staff member! She helped us out with everything we needed and was very sociable. We felt very comfortable. It is a bit out of the city center, BUT there is SO much to do very close by, because so many sights ARE outside of the city. The bus to take you to the city is very close. Our only complaint is that the walls are a bit thin, you can hear everything that is going on in the house early in the morning or late at night.


I really enjoyed staying at Fortaleza Hostel! It's nestled nicely in a woodsy area outside of the city center of Bariloche, and it's walking distance from some nice beaches and the famous Cerro Campanario. Make sure you have a bus ticket with enough pesos on it for multiple rides. The only place near the hostel that will recharge your card is at a kiosk about 2.5 km away. Not too far of a walk, but can be frustrating as it's on a busy road (but hey, more opportunities to try and hitchhike!)


We loved our stay at fortaleza!! Absolutely great staff! A bit out of Bariloche but great for hiking, going to the lake and much more quiet than the city... It was very hard to leave that beautiful place...


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
