Highly recommend staying at Mandala - the owners and all of the staff are very friendly / helpful. Great atmosphere with a very chilled out vibe. The rooms are really nice and have balconies that all offer excellent views of the beautiful area. We enjoyed our time for 4 nights and it was a shame to leave!


Hostel Mandala was a great place to stay in El Bolson. At first it seemed a far walk out of town but once you get there you appreciate the tranquility and beautiful mountain backdrop. The owners are amazing, and the hostel itself is really comfortable with great facilities. They went out of their way to help us when we realised we left our passports in Bariloche, saving us both time and money. I highly recommend this hostel... And make sure you do the kayak day trip!


This is an amazing hostel. The owner, Alejandro, is extremely friendly and welcoming. He speaks very good English but was also happy to help me practice my terrible Spanish. The photos don't do the hostel justice, it's really beautiful. Everything was kept very clean. The atmosphere was very chilled out. The location is a bit out of the centre of town but it's definitely walkable and it's a nice walk. Perhaps my only concern was that doing washing was very expensive. Overall highly recommended!


A lovely, genuine and interesting host who provides home made beer / pizza (and will gladly tell you the process for this). A great option for el bolson, very highly recommended


Amazing little hostel, feels like a home. The owners are lovely people and very willing to help. You can walk into town in 15 minutes and there are some nice walking trails around the hostel. Would definitely come back again. Great place if you're looking to relax.
