The staff are a delight and some of the most helpful people I have met travelling. They make bread every night for breakfast and you're allowed to roll out of bed whenever you want for it :)

I really enjoyed my stay in Hostel Achalay. Everything was good, but the staff was amazing! They helped me a lot. They really know the place. If you are like me, like to do the things by yourself, you will love Achalay! They don't keep pushing tours to you and give you the info necessary to do everything you want!
A really friendly comfortable hostel. Amazing staff who know a lot about the area. Really great, clean kitchen and nice breakfast too! Rooms slightly small but kept clean, would like a lock on door but otherwise no other problems! Would definitely recommend!

The staff all like to gather around and talk noisily whenever you are on the phone or skype, yet when you skype at 7.30am in the common room, away from the dorms - breakfast is scheduled for 8, you get told to keep your voice down!! While cooking we found the staff all crowded in the kitchen to chat and were in the way... when we were eating our dinner we were told they needed the table, the only one in the kitchen area, when we lifted our stuff to eat on our lap they told us they wanted...
Great time, huge lockers, and the staff was awesome. Also the homemade bread was really great.
Great hostel - you really know that these guys know the area and all recommendations they gave us were spot on. Really good vibe in the hostel and very helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Could buy a beer there in the evening and chill out. Thanks guys, Thomas and Julia
Good place to stay, recommended! Few bathrooms...
Great hostel with good breakfast, nice staff, good internet and a nice atmosphere.
Nice small hostel above the main street in Bariloche. Nice and helpful staff. The rooms are small but very clean. The bathrooms definitely need a makeover. Breakfast is small but ok - like everywhere in Argentina (they do however make their own nice bread)
Easily one of the friendliest hostels I've been to with a great atmosphere, highly recommended. Owner lent me his jacket for a biking trip, they were flexible with my last minute cancellation of one night, homemade bread & jam, etc. Rooms are clean, bathrooms could use a makeover but I heard they're planning that. :)
the staff at Hostel Achalay are very helpful and genuinely enthusiastic about improving your time in Bariloche. the beds are comfy, warm and clean, and even have powerpoints for each bed, with a bedside light as well. homemade bread for brekky is delicious. all other facets of a good hostel are here. very nice of them to let me keep my luggage here for a few days in between stays and travel elsewhere. would highly recommend staying here, thanks so much guys! fi and ben (aussies)
Nice hostel and nice staff. Rooms are a bit crowded and there are too few bathrooms.
This is the BEST hostel in the world! We booked 3 nights, but stayed 11 days in Bariloche! Bariloche is a fun city. Pablo, the owner, is such a funny friendly guy, we had an asado night with his family and it was delicies! Everything about this hostel is comfortable and really awesome: the great beds, the clean toilets, the tasty breakfast, the helpful friendly staff... We miss this place so much, it is like family. We never felt so home while being away from home. Thank you for everything!
excellent hostel,good location helpful staff even made me an earlly breakfast,wifi very good
A good hostel in el chalten, spotless with good facilities. Owners are helpful and a large collection of dvds concert & movies are at the guest diposal. A very good deal but no breakfadt included (not an issue).
Very friendly and helpful staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Very chilled place
Homemade jams with breakfast, decent kitchen, good location. Staff is excellent, very helpful, in both spanish and english. Lockers big enough for large backpacks, and are given to everyone in your room. Internet is close to non-existent though and the computers are bad.
