I especially liked their help with setting up a spot on the glaciar tour and a ride to the airport. Very helpful, friendly staff, thanks!


Very nice and cosy hostel, good staff to a perfect staying in El Calafate


The rooms and bathrooms are clean, kitchen is big and well equipped, a couple of minutes from the "main street". The best about nakel yenu is the awesome stuff! Everybody is super friendly, helpful and if you want to have a good time, sitting on the porch drinking beer/wine/etc with awesome people this is the place to be!


Cool guys ruining the place, really helpful.


the hostel is very nice, the beds are confortable. They serve a good breakfast. It's a littl far from the town center (10 -15 minutes walk).


great staff and atmosphere. A ton of us hung out on the front porch every night. Location was fine. About a 10 minute walk to town. Safe walk. Very clean hostel. There are only 2 bathrooms and 2 showers although I didnt have a problem at all and I was there 5 nights.


Very good hostel. A little bit far of the center but Calafate is very small, so it's relative :)


They were really helpful and assisting us in organizing trips even before we arrived! Tha asado was delicious even for me as a vegetarian :) The athmosphere was really relaxing and the veranda enjoyable! Okay, we had one of the calmest and sunniest days without patagonian wind :)

Excellent. Very recommended. The stuff is great and very helpful.


Hostel was decent, located a little walk from town. It was clean and the kitchen was pretty good. The staff were awesome and really helped us out. I´d recommend it


clean, good breakfast, good wifi, great staff


A nice hostel in a good location. The private room was spacious and provided towels. Staff we're friendly but not always that helpful with transport information. The breakfast room / shared kitchen was nice.


great spot, very nice staff, free breakfast and decent WiFi


This place was ok at best. I think its great for folks looking for a cool young hostel, and a dorm situation. It was fine in that regard. We are a couple in our 30's and got a private room that was literally next to the reception, and it was really noisy. Also breakfast was bread. No protein. Also, totally normal for a hostel, but another place we stayed at down the road was the same price, and just way better if you are a bit more picky (like Im starting to be in my older non-single years!)


A great hostel with a great staff. Nacho and Fede are very friendly and very helpful. ¡Salud!


Terrific staff! Personable and helpful, even before I got there. Nice breakfast area, and giod rolls as well.


Not a bad hostel, but not much of a hangout spot. Wi-fi didn't work when we were there and the beds creaked a lot, but it was a clean enough spot to spend a night without many worries.


The hostel and the atmosfere was great..also the staff A little far from the center but in a nice area..


Very good hostel. Stayed here for 3 nights. Excellent staff and very helpful. Definitely would recommend this hostel.


Very relax atmosphere with good Bob Marley / Hendricks music on background . Nice kitchen with barbecue place. A little far away from the bus station - maybe 15 minutes walking, but it worths because it is on the top of a hill with nice view.
