Located in a quite neighborhood of Calafate this hostel offers clean rooms with decent facilities. Dorms are spacious with good beds and big lockers for everyone. Clean bathrooms with good showers (hot water with decent water-pressure). The common-room is great to meet people. Breakfast is ok (bread with butter/jam, tee and/or coffee). Wifi is ok-speed and somewhat stable. Staff is fun, friendly and helpful and can organize tours for your. Overall a good place to stay.


This was a funky little hostel. It appears far from town on a map but really isn't. Bathrooms were clean and the staff were fantastic. I booked all of my tours through the front desk. Breakfast appeared to be just bread and coffee but was enough to start the day. I'd stay here again.


Very friendly staff, a little outside of the center but still close enough (e.g. to the bus terminal)


Pretty good hostel. Staff is really nice and will book everything for you at the hostel. Location is pretty good. Kitchen is nice and the separate dining room is nice. There could be a few more bathrooms but overall would recommend!


Hostel was great except for Wi-Fi, which hardly worked at all

This hostel was great! The kitchen being disconnected from the rest of the hostel was perfect for people to stay up in while not disturbing other guests. The only downfall was that the internet was not very good and our devices kept getting disconnected from it.


i had a private room and the 4 of them were around the living room which was supposed to be quiet but was quite noisy until after midnight making sleep very difficult. staff were helpful and could arrange everything so no problems organising your time. kitchen was small and lacked saucepans. the room had no hooks or rails so where do you hang anything?


Really great hostel! The staff were incredibly helpful when I needed to do things like get a shuttle to the airport (because it's way cheaper than a taxi) and they even bought a round trip bus ticket to El Chalten for me, which I paid for when I arrived in El Calafate. The breakfast is made available early, so it's perfect to eat before your tours. Laundry services available in the hostel, and only about a 5-10 minute walk from the very center of El Chalten and to the bus station. Def recommend!


Awesome hostel! The staff are really helpful, the wifi is good, the showers are hot, and the breakfast starts early and ends late, so you don't have to worry about getting up at a specific time. I definitely recommend staying there!


The rooms close to the loby are too noisy (street and people who talk loud at the loby)

Really friendly staff, friendly guests, nice atmosphere, and a great place to stay!


This was our absolute favourite hostel in Argentina! The place has such a cosy and relaxed feeling and the staff are kind and helpful. The dorm room was fairly small but the beds are comfortable and warm. The shared bathroom was great (hot showers) and the cleaners were always hard at work. The breakfast was basic (bread, jams, tea, coffee) but was excellently presented which really made a difference! The hostel also offer lots of tours which is great. Close walking distance to the town too.


Had a great stay here. The staff are very welcoming and happy to help. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and tidy. Would definitely stay again.


Auberge propre, très bon petit déjeuner avec horaires adaptés aux activités, cuisine équipée. Personnel très serviable qui peut organiser les réservations. Un peu loin du centre et du terminal de bus mais toutes les activités viennent chercher directement à l'hôtel. Good hostel with very nice breakfast and equiped kitchen. Helpful staff who can book your activities. A little bit far from the center and bus station, but activities come to pick you up at the hotel.


warm rooms, well maintained facilities, near location, good tours, early time breakfast, laundry service, silent atomosphere, everything I need was offered.
