Slept in a tin shed with minimal heating in minus degrees. Bathroom was a 2 minute walk out of the shed through the mud and sleet. Room. Was tiny with nowhere to put bags, extremely cramped and uncomfortable with 4 backpackers and all our hiking gear. Staff were rude. Terrible.
This is by far the cheapest hostel I could find in el calafate but you really get what you pay for here. Bathrooms with outside access only. tiny rooms with no lockers. Didn't notice any common space indoors. No way to get internet except if u are near reception area. I was happy to stay there because most other hostels are almost double the price but really don't expect anything special besides bare essentials.
We stayed 3 nights in a private room and it was the worst experience ever. It was noisy because of the staff we could hear through the walls. We were above the reception and the kitchen. The walls are thin as paper. From 8pm to 1 am noisy. We were even able to hear the staff changing the bins and doing the dishes. They even put some music at midnight and sang as if they were alone. Moreover the kitchen equipment was ridiculous. Only one pan and one spoon for everyone.
Not a bad hostel, just really basic. Staff not overly friendly, but is close to town so good for a stopover to see the Glacier
It's the perfect hostel to stay for a cheap no frills experience. Don't expect anything great but it's exactly what you pay for which did the job.
