It´s a must if you want to know the owner, a real follower of Boca football team! Very friendly stuff, good atmosphere, wifi ok.


Amazing hostel. With one of the best, like home atmosphere I ever been. Helpfull and kind staff will help you with everything you need and with a smile. Clean rooms and showers daily and good beds with good lockers to fit ALL your stuff. Heating all around the house so you can walk in shorts. Best location in town and flexibility in breakfast time. All together makes this place the best hostel in Bariloche.


Twin room was very small but overall hostel vibe was welcoming and chilled out! Staff were amazingly helpful and genuine - would definitely recommend this hostel!


Had a great stay at Hostel Achalay! Homemade bread and jam for breakfast was amazing. Good location. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Hostel had a really homely feel and we would recommend to anyone visiting Bariloche.


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!

Thanks alot for your comment, we enjoyed your stay with us


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...
